Student Letter Prompts Walmart to Donate School Supplies by Michele Earle El Monte

A writing assignment in an 8th grade English class at Madrid Middle School led to a generous donation from the Rosemead Walmart store of school supplies and gift cards for the students and teachers. Giving his students practice in writing business letters, English teacher, Doug Jones asked them to construct a letter to local businesses seeking donations for

their school. Eighth grader, Adriana Hurtado wrote to the Rosemead Walmart store and staff members there were so touched by her letter they decided to make a donation. “Adriana’s letter was well written and very heartfelt,” said Bertha Bonilla, Personnel Manager of the Rosemead Walmart. “She kindly asked for donations of school supplies because the severe funding cuts to education over the past few years really affected her school. The statement that really caught my eye was that she stated she understood if we

weren’t able to grant her request and thanked us for being an affordable store where she could get anything she needed,” said Bonilla. Students were surprised when the Walmart representatives delivered a huge box of school supplies to their classroom and presented Adriana with a gift bag to thank her for her letter. In addition to the classroom donation, the Rosemead Walmart store also donated twenty $50 gift cards that were raffled off to Madrid’s teachers. “Thank you so much for

this extraordinary donation,” said Jones. “I want my students to get practical experience writing business letters and I’m thrilled that they can see that their writing skills can pay off with a donation like this. We really appreciate your response to Adriana’s request and are overwhelmed at this generous donation,” Jones added. Students were happy to see the calculators, erasures, pens, folders, notebooks, rulers and many other supplies that will support them in class. Madrid Principal, Bonnie

Tanaka thanked the Walmart representatives for their commitment to education and for always being such a great supporter of Madrid Middle School. “We are extremely grateful to Walmart for always supporting our school. These supplies and gift cards and the delicious cake you brought mean a lot to our students and staff. It’s wonderful that you and the Walmart stores value education and truly are committed to supporting the youth in the community.”

Weekend Escape Hearst Castle: Playground of Hollywood Stars by Jo Anne Disney San Simeon

Visiting Hearst Castle is a must for movie buffs everywhere. You can enjoy reminiscing about legendary Hollywood movie stars, including those of the silent movie era. The castle is only open by tour. Each special tour furnishes a guide who provides a wealth of information about the intimate life of William Randolph Hearst and his guests. There are four day tours lasting approximately one hour and forty-five minutes each with their own individual motif and one two hour evening tour. Reservations are required. Walking through the rooms of Hearst Castle, I was fas-

cinated hearing of the the illustrious parties that movie stars attended there. I was mesmerized by thoughts of standing in the same place that Greta Garbo and Cary Grant may have stood. Among the many famous personalities that visited the Castle were Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Louis B. Mayer, Calvin Coolidge, Winston Churchill, George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Jean Harlow, William Powell, Carole Lombard, Loretta Young, Joan Crawford, Charlie Chaplin, David Niven, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Hal Roach, Buster Keaton, Randolph Scott and most impor-

tantly, Marion Davies, Hearst’s mistress of 32 years. My first look at the Castle was Tour One, the “Experience Tour,” suggested for first time visitors. It takes you through the gardens, a guesthouse called Casa del Sol, both pools, the first floor of the main building (Casa Grande) and a movie theatre room, where you see home movies Hearst made of all of the famous people that visited the Castle. This tour includes a ticket to see the film “Hearst Castle, Building the Dream” at the Visitor’s Center, which shows the priceless furnishings, paintings, sculptures and tapestries from around the world, used at the Castle. I think the two pools at the Castle are spectacular and add to the Castle’s beauty and grandeur. My second look at the Castle was Tour Two. This tour visits the upper floors of the main building (Casa Grande), including Hearst’s private quarters. The architecture is breathtaking. As I walked from room to room, I felt like I had traveled Spain, France and Italy all in the same day. His library is amazing. Most of the books enclosed in glass bookcases are first editions and very rare. I was awe-struck! During the months of November and December, the Castle is especially decorated for the holidays. Visitors say touring the Castle during this time makes their holidays extra special. Don’t miss out on the chance to see the Castle and see where legends played. Visiting the Castle is an experience not to be missed. Hearst Castle is located at 750 Hearst Castle Road, San Simeon, CA. More information can be obtained by calling (805) 927-2070 or at www.hearstcastle.com.

‘TIME JOCKEY’ Mill Restoration

Hidden Talent in San Gabriel

by Joe Castillo

Reluctant Pirate…. The San Gabriel Mission would end up as the most prosperous of the California Missions. Its proximity to the growing Los Angeles commercial center and strategic location on the El Camino Real between Monterey and Mexico spurred its growth. With the fertile lands of the San Gabriel Valley, easily accessible labor in the form of the local indigenous people and the farming and agricultural knowledge of the colonizing Spanish, the Mission had all the components for being self-sustaining. Only one thing was missing, a reliable water source. Without water, the Spanish would be unable to grow its numerous crops, orchards, vineyards and feed its large collection of livestock. Joseph Chapman was an American carpenter and blacksmith from Maine and would eventually travel to the Hawaiian Islands. Captain Bouchard, an Argentine pirate, abducted Chapman and forced him into service. Bouchard began to scout the California coast and initiated land raids in November 1818. But the Spanish suppressed the attacks, captured Chapman and imprisoned him in Monterey. He was sentenced to be confined to a prison cell for an extended period of time and was destined to complete his sentence. However, knowledge of his engineering skills caught the ears of his Spanish captives. Chapman was requested to construct some buildings for the Spanish and when he agreed, he recognized an opportunity to secure his freedom. While working at the Mission San Buenaventura, Chapman married Guadalupe Ortega of Santa Barbara and converted to Catholicism in the process. He was sent to the Mission San Gabriel the following year, and began to work for the Franciscan Missionaries on engineering projects. One of his projects was to build a new mill for the Mission, which had constructed a mill in present day San Marino but it proved to be inadequate for the grinding of corn and other grains. Chapman recognized that the mill needed to be constructed closer to the Mission itself, and identified a location about 150 yards to the south of the main Mission building. Chapman recognized that he

needed water to operate the mill and turn its heavy grist wheels, and so he completed a series of ditches or zanjas from Lake Vineyard to the Mission mill. The Mill was completed in 1823 and operation continued for the next 25 years until the water source eventually dried up. In 1874, the Southern Pacific Railroad surveyed a path just south of the Mission building, cutting off all water sources. In 1941, after years of deterioration and inactivity, the mill was bulldozed to make way for a new housing tract. As part of the Alameda Corridor Trench Project, excavation of the site was performed to determine if anything remained. Unearthed in the excavation were the remnants of the Chapman Mill in the form of a water mill race, a channel used to funnel and store water used to turn the mill. The remains were excavated and can now be seen at Plaza Park, adjacent to the Mission itself. A continuous flow of water is pumped through the restored channel to give it an appearance which has not been seen for nearly 200 hundred years….

Have you always wanted to try something new but thought that you were too old? Well think again. At 79, Celeste Bartsche has become a very talented artist. She decided to take lessons at age 50 and began doing tole painting and became a member of the San Gabriel Valley Tole and Decorative Artists. What is tole painting? Tole painting is done on any surface, but those I have seen are done on wood. The design can be traced or done free hand, depending upon your talent. Celeste moved on to oil painting which remains her favorite. She displays her art work throughout her home.

As you walk from room to room you can see the labor of love that went into each piece, displaying family members, pets and even paying tribute to veterans. I had the pleasure of a personal tour of her studio and the numerous paintings that are displayed. My favorites were the animals and the landscapes. Currently, Celeste continues to take art lessons at the Arcadia Senior Center. There are about 19 students in her current class, each working at different skill levels. Celeste credits her art teacher, Kt Boyce with helping her perfect her work. But she realizes that her talent comes from her father, who

was also an artist. Her biggest supporter is her sister-in-law, Sandra Zimmerman. Celeste has been part of group art showings at the Arcadia Historical Museum and the Pasadena Library. After the 1994 Northridge Quake, she was part of the SGVTole Decorative Artists Association volunteer effort that painted a variety of art on the walls of an entire ward at San Gabriel Hospital. Celeste says she will “continue to paint until she no longer can.”So if you think you are too old to start something new, think again. As Celeste says, “you are never too old.”

'Jerry's Journey' by Jerry Jambazian

Obituary Passing of Long-Time Temple City Resident by Jo Anne Disney Temple City

An idea was born over a year ago to have a multi-city fitness challenge. City Of Hope in Duarte is celebrating 100 years of curing cancer. Their next 100 years will be devoted to preventing cancer. To that end Foothill Fitness Challenge was born. Seven cities and their Mayor’s are leading the challenge. Participating city’s are Duarte, Monrovia, Temple City, Baldwin Park, Irwindale, Arcadia, and Azusa. Each city will participate over a threemonth period to see who is the fittest city in the foothills. Temple City Mayor Cynthia Sternquist got a little head start with the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge during the summer months spanning 9 weeks. They expected 300 participants and were overwhelmed with over 1,000. Families for fitness walked 1 mile through the City of Hope campus taking a visual tour along the way. If you like dancing, Zumba was available promoting exercise and a healthy lifestyle with an end result to reduce the risk of cancer and diabetes. Emmy award winning chef Nathan Lyons gave live demonstrations to an enthusiastic crowd on preparing healthy salads. City of Hope President Robert Stone was a gracious host as he welcomed hundreds of guest at Heritage Park. Since its inception in 1913 as the Jewish Consumptive Relief Association of California (JCRA), City of Hope has grown to become one of the most renowned medical insti-

tutions in the country, with a legacy of providing compassionate patient care and the best treatments available. In fact, City of Hope has pioneered many of the medical breakthroughs in the treatment of tuberculosis, cancer, diabetes, HIV- AIDS and other life-threatening diseases that are now considered standard medical practice. The City of Hope story begins in 1913, when a poor young tailor, alone and in pain, collapses and dies from tuberculosis on a Los Angeles sidewalk. Saddened by the tragedy and spurred by compassion to help others in need, volunteers establish the JCRA and raise money to start a free, nonsectarian tuberculosis sanatorium. With almost $2,500 raised at a benefit concert at Temple Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles, the JCRA puts a down payment on 10 acres of sun-drenched land in Duarte, where they would establish the Los Angeles Sanatorium a year later. The sanatorium consists of two tents—one for patients and the other for a nurse. So begins a century- long journey that will place City of Hope at the forefront of the nation’s medical institutions. Temple City Tweets: • Citizen’s Academy class of 2013 will begin on Thursday, October 10 at 7 p.m. in the Community Room at City Hall. Twenty-seven new members will kick-off with an introductory session on the “Starring Roles of City Leaders.”

• A popular family-fun event is the Fall Festival & Car Show from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Temple City Park. It features children’s activities, craft vendors, collector cars and performances by Temple City High School’s acclaimed vocal arts program. • Free Flu Shots will be available October 23 on a first-come basis to those without health insurance. It will be held at Live Oak Park Community Center from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.. For further information please call 2852171 ext. 2358. • After seven long years The Gateway Project has been issued building permits. The project includes the construction of an underground parking garage for 272 cars, and four separate buildings totaling 80,000 square feet of commercial area. Outdoor dining, public gathering area, water features, be still my heart!! I am happy to announce my new website dedicated to everything Temple City.

Carol Evangeline Knueven passed away on October 8th surrounded by her family after battling a long illness. She was 87. A long time Temple City resident, Carol was a direct descendent of the Temple Family. Her grandmother was Maggie A. Temple Rowland who was Walter P. Temple’s sister. Beginning at the age of 1, Carol lived in the house on Cloverly Avenue that her father built. Carol remembered when Temple City was nothing but dirt roads and backyards were filled with lemon and orange trees. Carol was a good friend and neighbor to everyone. She was a very kind person and always had a cheerful smile. Carol worked at Mission Chevrolet for many years as their receptionist/cashier. Her next job was with the school district where she finally retired. Carol was a devoted daughter and helped take care of not only her mother and father, but her sister Agnes as well as her Aunt Marguerite. After retiring, Carol loved

to work outside and her lawn always showed her efforts. Each year she had the greenest lawn on the block and she was proud of her accomplishment. She enjoyed traveling with friends, especially Sylvia and to take trips to Las Vegas, Tahoe and Solvang, visiting casinos to play Keno. Carol especially liked going to Cabreras Restaurant in Arcadia for a cheese enchilada meal. She also made it a point to meet with fellow retirees monthly for breakfast. Carol is survived by her loving niece Christine Nevarez and her husband Ray, their son Tony, her brother Louis, sisterin-law Mary Ann Knueven, many nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends. Services will be held at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Temple City on Friday October 18th at 2:00 p.m., where Carol was a life-time member. Carol will be remembered for her kindness and devotion to her family and friends.

FANVIEW By Joe Torosian “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” ---Traditional Worship This is a memorable “Seinfeld” exchange with much bearing. One of the main characters, Kramer, is participating in an AIDS Walk. (“Seinfeld”, Season 7, Episode 9) Walker #1: Hey, where's your ribbon? Kramer: Oh, I don't wear the ribbon. Walker #2: You don't wear the ribbon? Aren't you against AIDS? Kramer: Yeah, I'm against AIDS. I mean, I'm walking, aren't I? I just don't wear the ribbon. Walker #3: Who do you think you are? Walker #1: Put the ribbon on! Walker #2: Hey, Cedric! Bob! This guy won't wear a ribbon! (Cedric and Bob turn around and look at Kramer) Bob: Who?! Who does not want to wear the ribbon?! The episode ends with Kramer arriving at the finish line beaten to a pulp by the mob for not wearing the ribbon. What if I don’t wear pink during Breast Cancer Awareness? What if teams didn’t wear pink socks and pink wrist bands? You want to have a discussion about gun control, then have a discussion about gun control. You want to have a discussion about the gay athlete in the structure of modern team sports, then have a discussion. You want to have a discussion about offensive team nicknames, then have a discussion about offensive team nicknames. But the lie is when the media and those in academia say they want to have a conversation and then label you a bigot, extremist, or at best ignorant when you disagree with the position they’ve taken. Who isn’t for breast cancer awareness? Who isn’t against AIDS? Who isn’t against the evil (not tragic) shootings at Newtown, Virginia Tech, and Columbine? Who isn’t against using names that offend? However, our approaches and views to each of these issues might vary. I have differences with how all of these issues are dealt with, but in media circles and academia I’m a Neanderthal in my thinking. Before NBC’s Bob Costas

gave his view at halftime of the Washington RedskinsDallas Cowboys game on Sunday night I outlined to my daughter what Costas was going to say. Costas, who has never missed a bandwagon or cool cause to jump on, would sound like he was reading a letter from the Apostle Paul. Starting with warm salutation and ending with excoriation towards those who were either too bigoted or ignorant to understand that the nickname “Redskins” was offense. In other words, “Who refuses to see it my way?” See it my way on gays, guns, and politically correct terms or I’ll beat the crap out of you. The term, from those who lead our culture, is enlightenment. They want us all to become enlightened. The term that better fits is: Bully. Costas was not bold or brave. Costas has either been bullied or was bullying us to see things his way.

This is not the View of old. (Victor) Ambruso is doing a good job over there. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good,” said Rosemead head coach Marc Paramo. Paramo knew this for a fact as it took Steven Nava’s touchdown pass to Luis Luna on the first possession in overtime to lead the Rosemead Panthers to a 34-27 win over Mt. View Vikings Friday night at Marinelli Stadium. Rosemead led 7-6 at the

half, but trailed 27-20 late in the fourth quarter before tying the game on a Nava touchdown passes and then winning it in overtime. The two teams exchanged leads or were tied six times. They were also evenly matched in the stat totals. Nava finished 11 of 20 for 153-yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Vikings defensive back Trinidad Vargas had both picks. Mt. View quarterback Chris

Cervantes only completed 3 of 7 passes but totaled 160-yards and three scores. Adam Olivas caught all three of the touchdown passes. On the ground the Panthers were led by Alec Zavala who rushed for 196 yards and a touchdown. The Vikings get 152 yards out of Jose Moreno. Rosemead (5-1, 1-0) faces South El Monte next week, while View (3-3, 0-1) takes on Gabrielino.

The Peterson Principle By Tim Peterson

Maybe it's just me but when you're undefeated and facing a team that has been the best team in the league the last few years your captains should shake the other teams' captains' hands after the coin flip at midfield before the game. Because if you do and they drop 70 on you, you tip your cap, admit you got beat by a better team and congratulate them after the game. But if you don't and they drop 70 on you, you look foolish. Especially when you have had numerous personal fouls throughout the contest as the score differential continues to increase. It's sour grapes, cheap, just bad mojo. The other team simply points at the scoreboard and you're rendered speechless. Word to the wise. Shake your opponent’s hands before the game. Save yourself some unnecessary embarrassment. And another thing. Can we all please refrain from saying that we are better than the other team until we actually beat that team? You haven't been better than that team for the last dozen years or so, so why would it suddenly be different this year? If you don't say anything and get beat by 34 then you just shrug it off and go on to the next one. But if you talk all week and get beat by 34 you leave with your proverbial tail between your legs. Again save yourself some humiliation. Don't talk. Just play. Quarterback Nicolas Colmenero returns from an injury and Bassett knocks off La Puente, the frontrunner in the Montview. Don't look now but Hector Spathias' Olympians are 3-0 in league. Monrovia has shut out Temple City three of the last four years while outscoring the Rams 174-14. What happened to the classic rivalry? Don't expect it to be back for a few years. In fact it could disappear altogether if the Wildcats are moved out of the Mid-Valley Division. Isn't it safe to say that all the Mid-Valley leagues have already been decided? Okay, here we go. Bell Gardens wins the Almont, Arroyo the MVL, Monrovia in the Rio Hondo, San Dimas takes the Valle Vista and Paraclete in the Alpha. Maybe Sierra Canyon upsets the Clete apple cart but I don't see it. The Saints aren't just winning the Valley Vista they're making a mockery of it. They've outscored their first

three league opponents 16941. I liked Los Altos' bounce back win over Diamond Bar. I wouldn't want to face the Conquerors in the first round of the playoffs. How did Crescenta Valley score only 17 in a loss to Burroughs and then rack up 48 in an overtime win over Burbank? Brian Gadsby! Burbank's James “Boobie” Williams shattered the school single game rushing record with 263 yards in the loss to CV. Move over Christian Okoye. There's a new sheriff in town. At Azusa Pacific a running back broke Okoye's single game touchdown record Saturday night with five. And for good measure he also rushed for 299 yards. His name is Watson...Terrell Watson. That's my principle. Tim can be reached at tim@ midvalleysports.com

Baldwin Park Brought Back to Earth by Tim Peterson Baldwin Park

The San Dimas Saints registered over 400 yards rushing and 572 yards overall in a 70-27 steamrolling of the Baldwin Park Braves Friday night Valle Vista League play. The Saints led 21-6 at the end of one and extended it to 42-13 at the half. They scored the last four touchdowns of the game to reach the 70 plateau. The Braves cut the lead to 42-27 with a pair of quick scores to open the third but a turnover and and then a recovery of a kick off led

to two touchdowns for San Dimas and the rout was back on. The tension was ratcheted up when the Baldwin Park captains refused to shake hands with the San Dimas captains after the coin flip and were hit with a unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. The Saints immediately cashed in when Josh Avila went 70-yards for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. Avila rushed for 75 yards and the touchdown on two carries and

also threw for 156 yards and three scores. Braves quarterback Michael Moran threw for 242 yards and three touchdowns, including two to Jayson Miller for 8-yards in the first quarter and 86 in the third. Moran completed passes to nine different receivers. San Dimas improves to 3-4 overall and 3-0 in the Valle Vista while Baldwin Park loses for the first time this year and is 5-1 and 1-1 in league.

“This puts us back in position where we’re in playoff contention now,” said Duarte head coach Jason Martin. “We just got to stay the course and keep doing the things were doing, stay consistent, and become better mental football players.” A scoreless first quarter was followed with a 45-point eruption by the Duarte Falcons, who then glided to an easy 45-0 victory over the Gladstone Gladiators on Thursday night in Montview League action. The Falcons are now 2-1 in league (3-3 overall) while the Gladiators are now 1-2 in

league (2-4 overall). Duarte running back Sam Edwards scored twice. First on a 53-yard screen pass from Mark Cruz where he zig-zagged back and forth across the field before reaching paydirt. That score made it 17-0 at the half. His second score came on a 78-yard fumble recovery in the final seconds of the third quarter to push the Duarte advantage to 38-0. While it was Cruz who threw the touchdown pass to Edwards, Isaiah Scott did the bulk of the damage at quarterback for Duarte. Scott went 13 of 22 for 217 yards and a

touchdown. The scoring pass was a 28-yard strike to Nick Leon in the second. The Falcons Darryl Robinson caught three passes for 34 yards, and rushed two times for 41 yards, including a 27yard scoring run to close out the game. ”Oh, we just got him (Robinson) two games ago,” said Martin. “He’s our surprise for league play.” Gladstone had 10 possessions, seven ended with a punt, one on a turnover on downs, one by fumble, and the last when the clock ran out in the fourth quarter.

Lake Como is one of the most beautiful spots on Earth. In point of fact it is one of a trio of breathtaking lakes in northern Italy. Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta each have their own unique charm as well. From the town of Cavenago Brianza near Milan, my cousin Bruna's husband Fabio drove us up to Lake Como and the village of Varenna where we had a wonderful meal at the Hotel Albergo Olivedo. Nearby, we saw the Castello di Vezio (which has a spectacular view of the lake). Later that day we loaded Fabio's Alfa Romeo Giulietta on a ferry and took it across the lake to Bellagio, which is sometimes called "the pearl of Lake Como." We returned to Cavenago Brianza that night. This would be just part of my many adventures in Italy.Following my first three nights in Venice, I traveled with Bruna and Fabio Duranti and spent six nights with them at Cavenago Brianza (3), Bergeggi (2) and Lavagna (1). In between, Fabio drove us over 1,000

kilometers in his Giulietta to places that included Murialdo (my grandmother Fiorentina's hometown), plus Calizzano and Millesimo. On the Ligurian Sea we visited Noli (which was briefly a Maritime Republic like Genoa and Venice) and the town of Final Liguria. We also went to the beautiful coastal towns of Camogli (which has the world's largest frying pan) and Sestri Levante. Traveling with Bruna and Fabio, I would see the Leaning Tower of Pisa for the first time and the old Roman amphitheater in Lucca. After my visit with my Italian cousins I did two Trafalgar Tours in Italy. A Northern Italy including Cinque Terre Tour (8 nights) led by tour director Deborah Wiggin that included nights in Milan (3), Baveno (2), La Spezia (2) and Parma (1). On this tour I covered 1,400 kilometers. Highlights included the La Scala Opera Building, the Castle Sforza and the Villa Taranto. We visited Genoa (and the home of Columbus), Isole Belle, Isole Madre, Stressa, Sarzana and

Santa Margherita. I took a short train ride to visit Monterossa and Vernazza . At Roncole, I saw the home of Giuseppe Verdi (Joe Green in English). My 2nd Trafalgar Tour began in Rome. To get there I took the Italo Train from Milan to Rome (600 kilometers). Once there I began Trafalgar's Best of Italy Tour (13 nights) led by tour director Andy (Andrea) Blasi. I spent nights in Rome (4), Sorrento (2), Venice (2), Baveno (2), Florence (2) and Assisi (1). On this tour I covered 3,500 kilometers. Highlights included the Vatican, the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and the Pantheon. We visited Ravenna, Capri, Pompeii, Sienna and Positano. The Gucci Museum in Florence was one of the more unusual places that I saw. Following my 2nd Trafalgar Tour, I boarded a Trenitalia Train in Rome and headed to Bari (460 kilometers). In Italy I had traveled 5,960 kilometers (3,703 mikes). From Bari, I would board a ferry for Greece to take my 3rd Trafalgar Tour and board another cruise ship.

Citrus College started its fall term with its highest student enrollment in three years and an increase in class offerings, forging ahead with a bright outlook for the upcoming year. During the first week of the 2013 Fall Semester, Citrus College reported 13,530 students enrolled in credit and noncredit classes – an increase of 13.9 percent over last year. The College also reported that course sections grew by an impressive 22.9 percent. Additionally, Citrus anticipates an increase in course offerings during the winter and summer sessions. “It’s been a tough few years, but we are finally rebounding and are able to offer our students who are so eager to learn the chance to take the classes they need and move on to the next phases of their education and professional careers,” said Susan M. Keith, president of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees. “We still have a lot of work to do to get where we were before the recession hit, but we’re on our way and I’m positive that students will greatly benefit. Thank you to the voters of California for affording our students much needed opportunities.” The passage of Proposition 30 in November 2012 enabled Citrus to add more than 200 class sections to the fall schedule and become one of only 24 colleges planning to offer winter sessions. Its increased en-

rollment also reflects the fact that more students are getting the classes they need to earn an associate degree, receive a career/technical certificate or transfer to a four-year college or university. “Citrus has received some of the highest marks in the state as we work to augment our transfer degree program to ensure it fosters student achievement and elevates our role as a College of Completion,” said Superintendent/ President Geraldine M. Perri, Ph.D. “I again thank the voters for supporting Proposition 30, which has allowed us to provide these academic offerings.” Citrus College offers associates degrees in 43 areas of study; certificates of achievement and skill awards in 42 career/technical programs; and 14 transfer degrees – among the highest in the state. The top five majors at Citrus are Social and Behavioral Sciences; Biological and Physical Sciences/Mathematics; Business; Fine and Performing Arts; and Language Arts. Citrus has also been named one of the nation's top degree and certificate producing two-year institutions by Community College Week from 2007-2013. The College was also listed among the top 50 community colleges in the nation by The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education from 2010-2013.

Cal State L.A. to Launch Social Media Certificate Program this Fall by Margie Low Los Angeles

To meet the growing demand for professionals who are savvy in applying social media tools in their jobs, the College of Business and Economics at California State University, Los Angeles will launch a new Certificate in Social Media this fall.

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram are some of the social media platforms that are being embraced by companies, businesses and individuals worldwide. There is also an Social Media continued to page 10

increasing number of job postings requiring social media skills. “Social media is profoundly changing the ways in which businesses and nonprofits engage their customers,” said Michael Germano, a tenured associate librarian and an adjunct faculty at CSULA who brings a wealth of experience to teaching the integration of new technologies in marketing and the use of social media by marketing professionals. “The certificate program at CSULA gives students, regardless of major, both practical and analytical skills that will allow them to work in a variety of positions related to the fast paced and emerging field of social media marketing.” Designed for corporate leaders, educators, small business owners, human resource professionals, and marketing professionals, the 24-unit certificate program will address the many issues surrounding the phenomenon while providing a roadmap to help individuals and companies navigate social media to gain a competitive edge. Taught by Germano, the first course, entitled “Introduction to Social Media Marketing” (MKT 380), will be open to all majors. It will meet every Tuesday, 6:10-10 p.m., from Sept. 26 to Dec. 14, in Salazar Hall C358A. Working previously for a large Fortune 10 media company, Germano was responsible for strategic and tactical decision making related to customer engagement via the use of emerging technologies, especially so-

cial media. Other projects he was responsible for include: online corporate communications and social media/online reputation management. Overall, the certificate program features the best social media strategies and tactics to employ, how to create mobile marketing apps via mobile devices, measuring and tracking social media tactics, how to integrate social media into marketing plans, and developing a new business using social media. Students will also gain digital and social media skills; technical aspects of social networks; knowledge of how to design and implement a social media strategy; key social media metrics; and the application of social media tools into marketing initiatives and other strategic business initiatives. “The program will prepare students for careers that may not even currently exist by instilling in them a sense of the dynamism inherent to the integration of technology with marketing, something I experienced chronically during my career,” Germano added. “More specifically, it will impress upon students a sense of urgency when it comes to meaningful adoption and adaptation of new technologies in order to solve marketing problems while making them always aware of the ethical issues such adaptations may pose.” For certificate information or class registration, call the Department of Marketing at Cal State L.A., (323) 3432960.

quality and related matters. Keynote speakers at the event included Felicia Marcus, Chairperson of the State Water Resources Board, and Environmental and Consumer Advocate Erin Brockovich. Guests attended a widerange of panels that included topics such as stormwater pollution and water quality.

On October 22, 2013, at 9:00am, Cal-western Reconveyance Llc, as duly appointed trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust recorded June 27, 2006, as Inst. No. 06 1411544 in book XX, page XX of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, executed by Fang Yang and Sung Lung Lau Wife And Husband As Joint Tenants, will sell at public auction to highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the financial code and authorized to do business in this state: Behind the fountain located in civic center plaza, 400 civic Center Plaza Pomona, California, all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: Completely described in said deed of trust The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 3832 Cogswell Rd #b El Monte CA 91732 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $259,421.26. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN of a planned Undertaking by the Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System (LA-RICS) Joint Powers Authority (LA-RICS Authority) pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. The LA-RICS Authority proposes to construct a Public Safety Broadband Network (PSBN) using Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. The proposed PSBN will bring LTE broadband services to approximately 34,000 first responder and 17,000 secondary responder personnel throughout the greater Los Angeles region. This project is being funded by the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), and includes construction at 232 sites throughout Los Angeles County, most of which are existing public safety facilities or communications sites. Site infrastructure components would include installation of new monopole towers ranging from 25 to 85 feet, a broadband radio base station (known as eNodeB), network and backhaul equipment, antennas and cabling, and an emergency electrical power source. Comment regarding potential effects on cultural or historic resources associated with the sites listed below shall be submitted to: Stephen O’Neil UltraSystems Environmental 16431 Scientific Way Irvine, CA 92618 T: 949/788-4900 F: 949/788-4901 1320 N.

WEBB'S RULES

PEOPLE CAN TELL by Eugene R. Webb There really is no sense; In trying to keep up a false pretense. Because people can tell a lot about you; Just by the many things you do. Such as the way you walk; The interesting way you talk. By the cologne or perfume you use; Or by the company you choose. The way you comb or fix your hair; The clothes or things you like to wear. Your appearance tells people a lot; Also all the stuff you have got. All the attention that you need; Or the books you like to read. The food you like and how you eat; And the way people you treat.

Read it & Smile

Yourself you always want to be; So you are someone people want to see. Don't try to be somebody you are not; For you will be caught.
