El Monte Honored Those Who Serve at Annual Veterans Day Ceremony
by Chelsea Dickerson El Monte
On Monday, Nov. 11, El Monte hosted the City’s annual Veterans Day Ceremony to honor the men, women and their families who sacrifice to serve our nation. “Today we honor all Veterans who risked their lives so we can continue enjoying the best our country has to offer,” said Councilman Juventino “J” Gomez, a disabled American Veteran who served in the United

States Army from August 1965 to November 1967. “I want all El Monte residents who are currently serving or have served in the past to know that this community supports them and is grateful for the sacrifices they have made to keep us safe.” As part of the ceremony, approximately 30 Army and Navy recruits were sworn into service in front of their friends and family. The ceremony also included remarks from the City Council, a reading of the Veterans Day poem and the presentation of colors by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10218 and the American Legion Post 261. The El Monte High School Lions Band entertained those in attendance with several patriotic numbers. The Ceremony also served to announce the grand opening ceremony for the City’s
Veterans Village, a $12 million, 40-unit comprehensive affordable housing development designed specifically for veterans – the first of
its kind in the San Gabriel Valley. The event will take place on March 12, 2014.

A Mother Remembers and Gives Thanks by Debbie Lee USA
or Current Resident
It is with great respect, admiration and deep understanding that I write this letter to honor each and every Veteran that has served or is serving our blessed Country! I understand and appreciate all who have given so much for me, so that I could enjoy my daily freedoms. I was able to sleep well in the safety of my bed last night, because you served. I was able to pray before my meal this morning in a public place without fearing arrest, because you gave. I am able to stand up for what I believe in and freely speak my mind and voice my opinion without fear of retaliation against me or my family, because you cared. I am free to worship the one true God who created me in His image, because you were selfless in your actions. To each one of you I speak from the bottom of my heart when I say thank you, thank
you, thank you!!!!!! You are my Heroes and I want to remember and honor you this Veterans Day. Not a single day goes by that I don’t think of the sacrifices you and your families have given! My son Marc Alan Lee was laid to rest on Aug 2nd, 2006. I also remember him today as I do everyday and the sacrifice he made. Thank you son! His headstone says “Loved deeply, Deeply loved.” The love doesn’t go any deeper than that! He loved deeply! He loved his brothers he served with, he loved me, he loved his family, he loved this nation, he loved his freedoms, he loved God, and he gave. He gave it all! “Greater love has no one than this, that he laid down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13) That’s what a hero does. They are willing to give their lives for others if it’s required. I also think of my son Kris

Student's Corner Understanding Topics Better: Feminism The social stereotype of feminists, nicknamed “feminazis” is that they are a group of rambunctious and highly aggressive females who only want rights for women. However, upon extensive research on the subject, this stereotype, is, after all, a stereotype (an otherwise misunderstood faction of a rather larger community). So, as to clear away some fog on who these activists truly are, I will supply your brain with basic information on feminists, leaving you to create your own opinions. According to dictionary.
Ashley Lanuza, contributing student writer from San Gabriel Mission High School.
com, feminists are “advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men.” Though there a variety of feminist types, from liberal to radical, historylearningsite. co.uk state that they all argue on five society-shown concepts: patriarchy, discrimination, gender stereotypes as displayed in the media and education system, financial dependency on a patriarchal figure, and the emotionalsupport factor of family units. According to http://library. thinkquest.org, feminists aim for equal work-pay between

females and males and certain rights on medical issues, especially those involving the female body. One of the subgroups in the feminist movement, the liberal feminists, aim for more rights for women without drastically changing the current social structure. The other distinct subgroup in this movement is the radical feminists, who want a complete overthrow of the current patriarchy. However, keep in mind that men are involved in this movement. They strive for this equality as it affects men also, most distinctly, on the Student Corner continued on page 10

The 1300-pound Holstein came to the El Monte campus as part of an assembly sponsored by the Dairy Council of California’s Mobile Dairy Classroom.
La Primaria Elementary School in the Mountain View School District was paid a special visit by the Dairy Council of California’s Mobile Dairy Classroom. The free farm-toschool learning program teaches students about the important role agriculture and milk play in their lives and health. The outdoor assembly allowed the kindergarten through fifth grade students to come face to face with Bella, a six year old, 1,300 pound Holstein cow and Rocky, a seven week old, 130 pound calf. Students learned about the anatomy of a cow, what a dairy cow eats and drinks and how milk gets from the cow to the milk containers in their school and homes. Led by Dairy Council instructor and dairy farmer, Laura LaFayette, the assembly helped students gain awareness about agricul-
ture’s contribution to our food supply and provided students with knowledge of healthy food and activity choices. “I love sharing about our cows and the dairy industry,” said LaFayette. “The kids are a great audience and really enjoy learning about the cows and where milk and other dairy products they eat come from,” she added. Bella, the star of the show, happily chewed on alfalfa hay as LaFayette explained how dairy farmers milk the cows, and the two processes the milk goes through before we can drink it. “Milk only comes from cows who have had babies. It comes out warm and then goes through a pasteurization process and homogenization process. Milk that is served here at your school is among the freshest milk around. It gets from the cow to your school in about 48
hours,” said LaFayette. Students were surprised to learn that cows eat up to 50 pounds of hay daily and laughed when LaFayette shared that they drink water by sucking it through their nose. “I love Bella the cow and Rocky the baby!” said a happy 1st grader as she waited to pet Rocky at the end of the assembly. “Bella is really, really big and Rocky is so cute.” La Primaria principal, Angelica Sifuentes Donoso was excited to have her students participate in the assembly. “We greatly appreciate the California Dairy Council and their efforts to provide such wonderful learning opportunities for students. Bella and Rocky made a great impression on the kids and they learned a lot of new vocabulary words and terms pertaining to the cows and the dairy industry.”

Temple City is in the process of creating a new “Gateway” to the city in many ways. The 21 million dollar Rosemead Beautification Project is well underway scheduled for completion in late Spring of next year. The project will beautify Rosemead Blvd. from the railroad tracts to Callita on the northern end of city limits. Some of the enhancements include protected bike lanes, new lighting, pedestrian friendly walkways, seating, improved traffic safety, and public art by renowned artists. The other major project after 7 long years is The Gateway at Las Tunas and Rosemead Blvd. The project is in the process of creating 272 subterranean parking spaces. Hundreds of truckloads of dirt were removed. We have finally gone from just moving dirt around to actually building something. This corner is considered one of the premier sites in the San Gabriel Valley. Over 33,000 cars a day travel Las Tunas with almost 38,000 per day on Rosemead Blvd. The project will contain 72,000 square feet of buildings including a major tenant taking 35,000 square feet. Various retail, office, and restaurant sites will also be available. You can follow the progress photographically at my website: http:// www.templecityphotos.com. Temple City leaders have

Missions After Serra …. Father Junipero Serra died in 1784 at Mission San Carlos. During his time being the leader of Mission growth, Serra oversaw the building of nine missions. Another 12 Missions were built after his death resulting in 21 California Missions functioning under Spanish and Mexican rule. After secularization in the 1830’s, the Missions were abandoned and dismantled. Their assets were taken or given away to nonIndians, and the Missions lost their prestigious position in California politics. The Indians also lost their status gained while under the Spanish and Mexicans to Americans who sought to acquire their lands and other assets for their own gains. The Indians were pushed away from their home lands to dry, desolate areas which the transient Americans did not want. The conclusion of the Mexican-American War, the Gold rush and California’s entrance in the Union in 1850 brought large reductions in the Indian population. Forced to work unproductive lands with illegal wages levels, Indians lost nearly all rights which they had worked hard for under Spanish and Mexican rule. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, through the effort of local supporters and preservationists, the Missions would become tourist attractions sporting an architectural design which become symbolic of California. Romanized stories of Indians through plays and books, such as Ramona and The Mission Play, also showed California Indians is a more favorable light. Their journey from their decline to their rise mirrors the rise and fall of Missions. Both will be entwined forever in the History of California …. Anza Dream…. Juan Bautista de Anza’s father had a dream to find the first overland route from Mexico to Alta California, but his life was cut short and he died when Juan was 3 years old. Anza kept his father’s dream alive and when he was ready, he asked the Viceroy of New Spain, Antonio Maria Bucareli to allow him to prove the existence of an overland route. Bucareli agreed and permission was granted for an overland expedition. Following Indian trading routes and Mission projected routes, Anza identified a path in 1774. The path allowed Anza to include a large number of

Knights Take Panthers, 17-13
By Tim Peterson
Monrovia may well be on its way to a fourth consecutive Mid-Valley championship but CIF isn’t rolling out the red carpet for them to get there. The Wildcats get Sierra Canyon in the first round .500 third place team like La Canada. Also if the Cats do get past the first two rounds they could be sent out to Paraclete in the semis depending on how the coin flips. I don’t think anybody will be shedding tears for Ryan Maddox but if Monrovia wins it this year, you know they worked for it. Meanwhile Arroyo gets BP. Not an easy matchup by any means but Arroyo could have done a lot worse. Plus the Knights are not in the same bracket as Paralcete and Monrovia. They do have to go through San Dimas though. Let’s not sugar coat it or sweep it under the turf. Let’s just say how it really is. Crescenta Valley got scr... well the old scroochola. If an 8-2 record while playing in the Pacific Divsion doesn’t warrant a trip to the playoffs then I don’t know what does. Nothing against West Covina and Mike Magiore...historically a great team and a great coach...but the Bulldogs finished 5-5 and yet they landed the at large berth in the Southeast instead of CV. The Falcons lost to Pacific League champion Muir by 13 points and to Burroughs by a touchdown. They beat San Marino (8-2, Rio Hondo #2) early in the season. In two of three West Covina league losses, the Bulldogs lost by 26 and 21 points. This isn’t the West Covina team that won back to back titles. In any world, at the end of the season, 5-5 should never be better than 8-2 regardless of the criteria. Is there any way to appeal? If there is Whittier Christian should be second in line. How does Santa Paula, who was winless in the Tri-Valley League, get in the dance? This means that every team in the Tri-Valley League is in. Meanhwile Whittier Christian, who went 6-4 and took third in the Olympic is left on the outside looking in? One word...how? Strength of schedule be damned. 0-4 is 0-4. And Santa Paula’s games weren’t even close. None of their league games were closer than 17 points. Nordhoff and Bishop Diego beat the Cardinals by the combined score of 96-8! Despite the repercussions of the “Diamond Brawl” Diamond Bar snuck in. They

have Adrian Hernandez kick a short field goal. “I knew the Rosemead kid (Cansino) had a leg and I didn’t want to risk him kicking a 40-yarder or something to win it in case we didn’t make it,” said Singiser.

possible at-large bid in the Mid-Valley Division playoffs. For the Southmen the season is mercifully over, ending with a 2-8 overall, 1-4 in league after getting a share of the MVL crown in 2012. Vikings running back Moreno’s three touchdowns give him 18 on the season. View was up 21-10 at halftime, and led 28-18 midway through the fourth. Also playing well was Josh Martinez, outstanding at linebacker, who pounded in a touchdown. Quarterback Chris Cervantes broke off a 63-yard run to paydirt.

FANVIEW By Joe Torosian “All I kept thinking about, over and over, was ‘You can’t live forever; you can’t live forever.”-------Fitzgerald No, you can’t live forever. Neither can you go back. Where professional football (or team sports) allows an athlete to play out the string of his talent. They allow them to go until they can’t run and react anymore...the college and prep games end abruptly. They end with talent and strength still in the joints, bones, and tendons. They end when the mind is still strong enough to dream about future potential, and not be locked into reflecting about what once was. The professional experience is like sitting down to dine at your favorite restaurant and gorging yourself until you can gorge no more. The college/prep experience is like going to that same restaurant. You are dressed to the nines, famished, and then asked to leave after finishing the plate of appetizers. It’s painful, it’s tragic, it becomes haunting. This is why sports for many of us is not about sweating and points and championships. It’s theater. It’s a great production that introduces you to great characters that you can’t help but root for. It gives you characters that you can’t help but root against. Like any great play it subtly introduces back story for its most minor of characters and when they fall or fail, you feel the tug at your heart. You don’t want them to leave the stage, but they do. Great dramas are also unpredictable, you have no idea how its going to turn out. You have a desired end set up in your mind, but it hardly ever plays that way. I look at Mt. View and head coach Victory Ambruso and how they spent this whole season living on the edge. Fighting to get the school’s first playoff appearance in football since 1997. Did I root for them more than others? No, but I wanted to see how the story continued because there was still strength and talent in their legs. They wanted to play, but the appetizer was finished and they’ve been asked to leave. And for those that are asked to leave, many (the seniors) are never coming back. They will never put on helmet and pads again. It is over. Strength in their hands, strength in their legs, but ferocious fate requires that they move on to another table in life.

Scoby Scores Five, Wildcats Win Rio Hondo League by Duane Barker San Marino
Kurt Scoby scored five touchdowns and totaled 355 yards from the line of scrimmage to lead the Monrovia Wildcats to a 62-21 victory over the San Marino Titans, and a Rio Hondo League title, on Friday night at Titans Stadium. In terms of numbers the victory is the Wildcats 32 consecutive RHL victory, their sixth straight league title, and gave them the first seed in the pending CIF playoffs as they seek a fourth consecutive championship. San Marino struck first taking the opening drive and marching 68-yards on 11 plays capped by a Andrew Ferraco one yard plunge. The Wildcats needed only three plays to tie the score. On third and long Deshawn Potts hit Scoby on a screen pass. Scoby found a seam, hit the jets and was gone 49-yards to glory. The Titans retook the lead, but it didn’t last long. Mr. Scoby was at it again. The senior running back found another crease in the San Marino defense and 74-yards later, the game was tied again, and essentially open the floodgates.

Monrovia got its first lead on a 29-yard run by Scoby. The Wildcats touchdowns kept coming in the second half. Scoby took the kick off to start the second half and raced all the way down to the San Marino one. Darione Jones did the rest on the next play to put the Wildcats up 49-14.
Kameron Johnson did the rest of the damage for the Wildcats on touchdown runs of 18 and 69-yards respectively. Johnson carried the ball only five times but gained 113-yards on those five carries.
Azusa’s Cacciatore Kicks Cougars to Victory by Tim Peterson Glendora

Azusa Pacific’s Jamie Cacciatore booted a 25yard field goal as the clock hit zeroes to beat Dixie State 23-20 Saturday night at Citrus College. The Cougars scored ten points in the last two and half minutes to hold off Dixie and improve to 8-1 in the GNAC, 8-2 overall. Dixie State called three consecutive timeouts in an attempt to freeze Cacciatore before the game winning kick. “In knew they were going to do that. I say bring it on!” Said Cacciatorre, who also made kicks of 19 and 34 yards. The Cougars took their first lead of the game with 2:39 left in the fourth quarter on a three yard run by Ronald Douglas to make it 20-13, only to see Dixie State respond with a 44-yard pass from Griff Robles to Joel Davis to tie it at 20.

Sportsmanship and comp eliminator started the day yet again and the day continued on into the alcohol funny car and top alcohol dragster. As the pro mod motorcycle rolled in every run was close. Pro mod car came through with some great tire shaking runs that killed qualifying times for most teams. Shane Gray rolled up to the line for his qualifying run and got through his burn out on to the line, when something in his car just let go at the line causing him to back out for this qualifying run. To start off the first set of nitro qualifying for Saturday funny car rolled in with Courtney Force in her Traxxas Ford Mustang for a clean run. But as the round continued nearly every run pair had at least one car that ran into problems, with tire shaking down track or dropping cylinders. With nearly identical track temps between Robert Height and John Force
runs, Robert Height pulled off a 4.028 at 317.49. And John Force ran a 4.039 at 314.02. Top fuel came rolling into the track and in the first run, Todd Patton blew with a large flame trail coming off the back of his car leaving the next cars in a long hot wait for their runs. The next run after the oil clean up from Todd Patton ran a 3.825, and smoked the tires at the 60 foot. Steven Torrance seemed to have proven the right lane good with another win at 3.835. At 321.65, Tony Schumacher ran the left lane proving the previous 2 good runs wrong, smoking the tires halfway down and sets him to enter the final qualifying session not yet qualified. Pro stock motorcycle enters for its final qualifying session just after 2:30 pm on Saturday for the “get down or go home” qualifying session, to stay in the chase for a win this weekend.

ARIES It’s Monday and you’re feeling a little sluggish. You’re lost in your own thoughts and everyone else seems to be lost in their own thoughts, too. TAURUS Whatever you feel Monday, you’re going to feel it intensely. If something seems deep, it’s going to seem unbelievably profound. GEMINI Your powers of observation are unmatched, and Monday or Tuesday you’re going to see something that to your mind changes everything. People are so complicated. Share what you know with a good friend. CANCER Are you feeling under the weather or on top of the world? Why can’t you figure your own mood out? Every time you have to make a decision on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, you’re going to be stalled by indecision. LEO Things may not be as they seem on Monday. On the surface, everyone is happy and getting along just fine, but dig a little and you’ll find a different story. You’re smart enough not to take things at face value. VIRGO Even though you don’t flaunt it, you have a pretty analytical mind. You know what’s really going on here. Share your insight on Monday with a good friend . LIBRA Monday and Tuesday (and probably the rest of the week, too) are all about business and money. It’s all you’re going to be able to think about. SCORPIO You can’t help it. You have this aura that people are drawn to. Especially at the start of this week, you’re going to find yourself surrounded by more friends than you ever realized you had. SAGITTARIUS You’ve been having these crazy dreams lately, and they’re all you can think about Monday. What could they possibly mean? CAPRICORN Monday is all about your friends. There’s a chance you may need to call on someone for help, but everyone always calls on you for help, so there’s no need to feel guilty. AQUARIUS You were all gung-ho about your career just a couple days ago, but at the start of the week, you’re not so sure. The thing is, you haven’t really figured out what you want yet, so it’s hard to know if you like what you have. PISCES You’re happy to help people out on Monday, but you’re not exactly thrilled about your suspicion that people are perhaps taking advantage of you. Is that what’s happening?

WEBB'S RULES GOOD REPUTATION by Eugene R. Webb A good reputation is something to have and hold; Believe me it is much better than silver or gold. Most of us find about others it’s real easy to criticize; We should look at ourselves, for we know it’s not wise. It it’s our reputation that we truly want to keep; Then we all should stop and think before we speak. Also we should do what we know is right, not wrong; This takes a person who is willing to stay real strong. Anything worthwhile, there’s always a price to pay; Most of us like to have everything our very own way. Two heads are usually a lot better than just one; For I think it’s a great way to get anything done. If you have a business and want to keep it strong; Then you must remember, the customer is never wrong. Life is not a business, but a wonderful way of living; A lot of patience, love, self-sacrifice and forgiving. We in America have a lot of people of every race; I don’t believe we here could be in any better place. It’s hard to believe there’s people filled with hate; They do exist but no living, as they don’t have faith. People who stand for nothing will fall for anything; I’ve heard tell, and a lot of heartbreak it does bring. In our lives we should stop and take time to look back; To make real sure we’re running on the right track.

social level. Anyhow, feminism is not about creating a matriarchy. Rather, it is to equalize and pay attention to the gender gaps within our society. Antifeminists are exactly what their label sounds like: those against feminism. According to historylearningsite. co.uk, critics state that the movement is too negative and make women seem like “passive victims.” Also, the website’s source mentioned that the movement is too aggressive and ignorant, as it seems to only focus on one (racial) group. According to an antifeminist site, ladiesagainstfeminism.com, women are “for maidenhood, modesty, virtue, intelligence, womanly arts, and femininity. “ Using Biblical responses for women, the founders encourage females to pursue their Godgiven roles in society. On the topic of “feminism,” the website concludes that women and men are spiritually equal, but can never be equal in the society-sense. This movement argues that spiritual equality amongst genders is the only type of equality that matters and that we’ve always had this type of standing. All in all, the antifeminist movement contradicts the feminist movements on their basic belief that feminism is not entirely necessary in our current world. Now, it is your turn to create your own personal thoughts and morals on gender equality/inequality. Feel free to continue with research on the topic and form your opinions.

I have traveled around this country, to Iraq and Gitmo speaking out in support of you, thanking and honoring you “Our defenders of freedom.” I have been blessed to meet many of you and your families, and have been so deeply touched by your stories and your sacrificial service to this nation. I don’t take for granted our freedom which isn’t free, it comes at a cost and you willingly paid that for me. So please remember this Veteran’s Day that I am your biggest fan and that you are deeply appreciated and loved. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you and your families and I know I’m not alone. There is a grateful nation who also honors and remembers your sacrifice and knows that our country is what it is today because you selflessly gave. I know the price of freedom and I understand the sacrifices that you have given. You have selflessly given for this nation, not for rewards, medals or recognition. Please join me today as a grateful nation chooses to collectively remember, thank and celebrate our Vets, who they are and what they have selflessly given. I choose to do that every day because they are my HEROES and I am so grateful! Happy Veterans Day and God bless each one of you!
