Cleminson School fifth grader Kameron Blanks was surprised on Friday morning as he was picked up by Auto Club Speedway President Gillian Zucker in the official Auto Club Speedway Pace Car and given a ride to school. Then he switched cars and made a grand entrance to the school assembly in a real Indy show car. Kameron, along with many other students at Cleminson,

was honored for outstanding reading achievement in the Auto Club Speedway’s “Lefty’s Reading Challenge”. “They rang the doorbell and I was speechless,” said Kameron as he spoke of the morning. Sixty-nine percent of the students at Cleminson School participated in the program, named after Auto Club Speedway mascot Lefty Turner. The program was launched in 2010 with a goal of showing the importance of reading as a foundation for future student growth. Librarian Kathy Evanilla said, “Kameron epitomizes what Lefty’s Reading Challenge is all about. He made huge strides in English/Language Arts, with his state testing scores going from Proficient to Advanced – an improvement of 46 points.” Lefty’s Reading Challenge, offered to schools in

Baker Elementary School students hit the dance floor Friday morning for two hours of dancing to raise funds for field trips and student awards. Students, staff and parents had fun participating in the high energy Dance-a-thon, showing off some great moves and rhythm. “This is a wonderful event that helps raise money for our school,” said Donelle Soto Magat, Baker principal. “The kids really love it and it’s a great way to bring us all together to help our school, have fun and get some exercise too.” Smiles and laughter were abundant as students danced to popular songs like “The Best Song Ever” and “Party in the USA.” A school-wide

Conga line moved throughout the campus and everyone had a fun time doing the “Chicken Dance.” Baker’s teacher of the year, Mario Montoya performed a techno-pop/ break dance to the delight of the students, who cheered him on like a rock star. “Mr. Montoya is a great dancer! That was awesome!” said a fifth grader,

greatly impressed with the teacher’s moves. After two hours of dancing the students were a bit tired but couldn’t stifle their excitement. “I like the dance-a-thon,”

said a first grader. “It’s fun to dance and I liked seeing our principal and teachers dancing. I wish we could do it every day.”

Student's Corner Children of Syria According to the New York Times, children in Syria are being drastically traumatized and hurt, due to the endless amounts of violence and death in the country. Researchers state that the generation would suffer from psychological, physical, and educational/mental damages. Children from Lebanon and Jordan are refugees, fleeing from their homes to escape civil tyranny. They have seen death everywhere, and have

faced its dark mask in terror. Youngsters have been shot by snipers and damaged by bombs. They have been executed, murdered, damaged. The Times article writes, “Whenever we interact with children, they tell us how much they miss home, how they want to go back, how horrific the situation is, and they talk mostly about death,” Juliette Touma, a spokeswoman for Unicef, the United Nations children’s agency,

said in an interview. I hope the best for this generation of Middle Eastern children. The traumatizing and endearing situations they have to go through, at such a young age, are truly sadistic. If there is any glimmer of hope for this generation, it is in our own first-world country. We need to find, care, and help these people find a country that they can call home.

Weekend Escape Hollywood Park by Jo Anne Disney Los Angeles

Legendary Hollywood Park located in Inglewood, will be closing its doors on December 22, 2013 after 75 years. This historical racetrack opened on June 10, 1938. At the time, many movie stars were frequent visitors to this exciting sport. History tells us that “the Hollywood Turf Club was formed under the chairmanship of Jack L. Warner (of the Warner Brothers film corporation). The 600 original shareholders included many stars, directors and producers of the film world.” Old timers included: Al Jolson and Raoul Walsh ; Joan Blondell; Ronald Colman; Walt Disney; Bing Crosby; Sam Goldwyn; Darryl Zanuck; George Jessel; Ralph Bellamy; Hal Wallis; Anatole Litvak; Hunt Stromberg; Wallace Beery; Irene Dunne, and Mervyn LeRoy (director of Hollywood Park from 1941 to1986). In addition, many legendary horses ran at Hollywood Park. Among them, “Seabiscuit was victorious

‘Town Tweets’ by Joe Castillo

Savannah Cemetery Fundraiser …. Historic Savannah Memorial Cemetery is in need of much needed funds. It’s gotten so bad that the cemetery turned off its water and stopped its maintenance in order to save a few dollars. These measures will only temporarily save Savannah but more is needed for the long-term. Currently, Savannah is trying to raise funds for its ongoing operations so perhaps you can help the cemetery. … In the early 1850’s pioneers joined wagon trains that were headed west from Independence, Missouri. At the conclusion of their arduous journey, finally having reached the end of the Santa Fe Trail, they settled in what is now El Monte and Rosemead. Builders of the area’s early schools, churches and businesses, those intrepid souls became some of our first civic, county and state leaders. Many were buried with their loved ones at the Savannah Memorial Park where some of the earliest graves date back to 1853…. To walk through the grounds and read the names of the pioneers on the headstones is to relive the beginnings of the San Gabriel Valley. This little piece of ground has a very vivid history and is in need of critical support to preserve and continue its beautiful, rich legacy. Our website, www.savannahcemetery.org has much more information about the fascinating story of the early pioneers and the cemetery. … Providing regular grounds keeping functions such as mowing the grass, trimming the trees and maintaining the fencing continues to be financially challenging. We have also recently learned that our water rates will soon be increasing, making it even more difficult to adequately irrigate the grounds. One day we would like to be in a position to add more drought tolerant plants to cut down on water usage. But all of this takes money…. A long-time Savannah benefactor and local business, the M.C. Gill Corporation has made a most generous offer and presented us with a tremendous opportunity. Until the end of this year, Stephen Gill, CEO and the M.C. Gill Corporation will match the donations we receive on a $.50 to $1.00 basis, up to $10,000. This means that if we are able to secure $20,000 in contributions, the challenge will generate $30,000 of critically needed

funding for this regional gem…. Savannah Memorial Park, recently designated California Historical Landmark #1046, receives no outside support and is fully dependent on raising its own funds. Please join us by making a fully deductible donation, before December 31, to help preserve one of this region’s historical treasures. Please send your generous donations to El Monte Cemetery Association, PO Box 4247, El Monte, CA 91734. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration…..

Sagittarius Slow down on Tuesday and Wednesday, as rushing only sets you back farther. If other folks pass you by, you know you'll do the same to them later on.

Capricorn Once it's past, your good energy starts to flow back and you find it easy to educate yourself on all sorts of new topics.

Aquarius Shopping and financial issues at work could be stressful in the middle of the week, and you ought to make sure that you've got as much information as you can handle.

Pisces A project you're working on midweek is more important than it appears, so you should try your best to apply yourself to it totally.

WEBB'S RULES SIXTY-FIVE YEARS TOGETHER by Eugene R. Webb In the eighth grade is where we first came face to face; Twin Falls High School in Idaho is where it took place. This girl had the prettiest red hair I had ever seen; she stood out like a rose, had an unusual name, Aileen. With a full-time job as a Bellhop, had no time to play; We remained friends that just went our separate way. I came home after spending two-years in the Marines; Then I called and dated the red head named Aileen. Were together from April to June and got engaged; She was 19 & I was 20, my Mother signed, I was under age. We got married in L.A. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, 1948; It may be hard for you to believe, but Aileen was late. Sixty-five Years doesn't sound long when you say it fast; We're so grateful that we've been able to make it last. Lots of patience, love and help from the man up above; We made it through as it's each other that we think of. We've been blest to have such a great family tree; Each one of them means the world to Aileen and me. Three children, Gail, Kirk, and Jill that makes us happy; Five grandchildren, April, Wendi, Jared, Noelle & Ashley. Eight great grandchildren are loveable at any age; Jordan, Cole, Chase, Alyssa, Owen, Ethan, Lucy & Paige. It's real easy to see that we have a lot to treasure; Loving life and our family gives us a lot of pleasure.

El Monte Union High School District Named to College Board District Honor Roll by Anne Donofrio-Holter El Monte

The El Monte Union High School District has been recognized by the College Board as one of 477 school districts in the United States and Canada to increase access to AP (Advanced Placement) course work while simultaneously increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams. According to a College Board spokesperson, "reaching these goals indicates that these districts are successfully identifying motivated,

academically prepared students who are likely to benefit from rigorous AP course work. Helping more students learn at a higher level and earn higher AP scores is an objective of all members of the AP community from AP teachers, to district and school administrators, to college professors." "This recognition is due to the hard work of our students, teachers and staff members in providing support and motivation for our students to reach higher

goals," said El Monte Union High School District Superintendent Nick Salerno. "In addition, our Partnership for College events and activities provide much needed information and confidence for students and families. Our strong AVID program and its staff members provide support and motivation for our students, pushing previously mid-range achieving students upward into Honors and AP coursework." When determining this year's District Honor Roll,

the College Board examined three years of district AP data with emphasis on increased participation in AP, increased or maintained percentage of exams taken by minority students and 2013 performance levels compared to 2011. "We are very proud of our students and staff members," added Salerno. "A College Board member stated to me that our AP progress and results compare well to any other district in the nation."

Reps. Napolitano and Chu, and El Monte City School Kaiser Permanente Baldwin District Proudly Honors Park Celebrate Successful 10th It’s Own Annual Domestic Violence Collection Drive by Arlene Bury El Monte

by Maria Lengerke Herrington Baldwin Park

Congresswomen Judy Chu (D-CA 27) and Grace Napolitano (D-CA 32), in partnership with Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center, hosted a press conference announcing the results of the 10th Annual Domestic Violence Campaign Collection Drive. The drive, which coincided with Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, collected over one hundred and ten 33-gallon bags full of women’s and children’s clothing, toiletry items, and other donations that were distributed to victims at shelters throughout the San Gabriel Valley.

“Victims of domestic violence often experience emotional and psychological trauma, which can lead to serious mental health issues,” said Rep. Napolitano. “We must do more as a community to prevent domestic violence, but it is also critical that we ensure mental health resources as well as physical treatments are available for those who need them most. I thank Congresswoman Chu and Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park for their continued dedication to aiding victims of domestic violence.” “Domestic violence affects every community, and

people of all ethnicities and walks of life,” said Rep. Chu. “As a State Assemblywoman in 2003, I joined forces with Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park to hold these Domestic Violence Awareness Collection Drives, and for ten years we have been helping victims as they overcome their physical and emotional scars. This year has been a great success, and I thank Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park, Congresswoman Napolitano and all of our great partners for helping us support those most in need.”

The November El Monte City School District board meeting started off with Dr. Maribel Garcia proudly recognizing four EMCSD schools. A large crowd of parents, teachers and staffs were on hand to join in the celebration complete with platters of colorful fresh fruit and vegetables. The first school to be honored was Rio Hondo. In 2011, Rio Hondo was awarded the Gold standard by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The school was also recognized by First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Clinton. Last year, Chelsea Clinton visited Rio Hondo to recognize their efforts to bring parents, school staff, and students together to turn campuses into healthy places. Students of the Rio Hondo Health Council recently met with Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator Barbara Boxer to discuss student health issues. Dr. Garcia continued the recognition ceremony with Cleminson School. Cleminson was recognized in 2012 as a Gold school for championing healthy lifestyles for students, families, teachers and staff. Principal, Dr. Lillian Prince, cor-

related much of the school’s success to an awareness of healthier options when it comes to food choices and healthier lifestyles. Cleminson continues to celebrate academic success, with an 11 point growth on the Annual Performance Index (API) last year bringing their API to 853. Cleminson has also been recognized as a Title I Academic Achievement School and boasts outstanding attendance. “The most recent addition to the Gold family is Wilkerson School”, Dr. Garcia went on to say. Last month, Principal Juan Munoz traveled to Little Rock, Arkansas to accept the Gold award on behalf of Wilkerson and had the opportunity to meet President Bill Clinton. Wilkerson’s attention to a healthier student body is reflected in their outstanding growth as measured by the API and AYP. Not only did Wilkerson exit Program Improvement a year ago, but they continue to add to their API, bringing them to 818 with a 93 point gain in the last three years. The recognition ceremony concluded with Honor Our Own continued on page 7

Shirpser School. Shirpser was honored for their 32 point growth on the State’s API. Dr. Garcia said, “This is an outstanding leap that deserves recognition and celebration. A growth of this caliber represents an examination and modifica-

tion of the systems in place for learning.” The school board and Dr. Garcia presented all four schools with a colorful banner to hang at their school proudly announcing their respective achievements.

on like a rock star. “Mr. Montoya is a great dancer! That was awesome!” said a fifth grader, greatly impressed with the teacher’s moves. After two hours of dancing the students were a bit tired but couldn’t stifle their excitement. “I like the dance-a-thon,” said a first grader. “It’s fun to dance and I liked seeing our principal and teachers dancing.

Temple City Defeats Maranatha in OT

Temple City

The Temple City Rams boys basketball team got its season off to a strong start with a 74-69 overtime victory over the Maranatha Minutemen on Wednesday night in the opening game for both schools. After getting beaten up early by the Maranatha big men, Temple City Head Coach Eric Chin encouraged his team to turn up the heat defensively. “He told us to pressure them harder and we started getting points some off their turnovers. Then when second half came our team started to set each other up and we started making our threes,” said Rams guard Goren Lee who scored 29 points to lead both teams. In the overtime period both teams made mistakes and missed easy baskets, but Temple City was able to take advantage at the free throw line as they outscored Maranatha 11-6 in the extra frame.

Monrovia Falls Against Paraclete

The Peterson Principle By Tim Peterson

The “Wing Z” offense that is run by San Dimas has always been difficult to stop. The Saints offense involves several misdirection plays on the ground, with running backs at times going in different directions. The ball is usually well hidden and sometimes is impossible to pick up until you see either the quarterback or one of two or three backs running up the field with it. For defensive coordinators it's always a nightmare especially when given only a week to prepare. But this year the Saints have taken it to a different level. Friday night in the Mid-Valley semi-final game against Arroyo they racked up over 600 yards on the ground. No, that's not a typo...600! That's a good month for most teams. Joseph “The Count” Mayorga rushed for a school record 322 yards while his running mate Fausto Martinez had 215 on the ground. San Dimas scored on nine of its 12 possessions for 61 points and on two of those possessions the Saints fumbled the ball, once deep in Arroyo territory. Otherwise they're in the seventies. Of course that wouldn't be anything new for San Dimas this year. They put 70 on the board in October against Baldwin Park. The Saints were 0-4 to start the year and people started wondering if they could turn it around. Well they turned it around all right. That has to be the understatement of the year. In the last nine games, all victories, the Saints have outscored their opponents...are you ready for this?...476-123. In the last two weeks they've scored 117 points. During the nine game run the lowest point total they have had was the first game of the streak when they put 41 on Northview. The Saints scored over 50 twice during the run in addition to the 61 and the 70 point games. The rushing statistics are even more mind boggling. Mayorga (1712) and Martinez (1196) have both eclipsed the 1000 yard mark and San Dimas has two other rushers in quarterback Josh Avila and Manny Elizalde that have at least 400. Avila has 422 and Elizalde has 508. The Saints have run for 61 touchdowns overall with Mayorga leading the way with 16. Paraclete figures to be the best defense San Dimas

has faced since September but the Spirits are going to have their work cut out against an offense that right now is the hottest in the valley. Arroyo head coach Jim Singiser may have said it best after Friday night's game. “We just couldn't stop them. It didn't matter what defense we put out there we couldn't stop them.” All year it's been said that Paraclete was the one MidValley team that could beat Monrovia. Well, they did exactly that Friday night with a 22-21 win. My only question is why did Kurt Scoby get only 16 carries? Frankie “Football” Palmer gets another shot at a CIF title. He can lead the La Serna offense to enough points to win but can his defense stop Rashaad Penny and undefeated Norwalk? Did you notice in last week's “Game Night” that we picked the exact score of the Nordhoff-Bishop Diego game? Yes, we cover the Northwest. That's my principle. Tim can be reached at tim@ midvalleysports.com

The Monrovia Wildcats saw its three year reign of the Mid-Valley Division come to an end Friday night at Antelope Valley College when Paraclete Spirits kicker Andrew Jimenez drilled an 18-yard field goal with 30 seconds remaining to give the Spirits a 22-21 victory. As always it was Kurt

Scoby who led the Wildcats. Scoby rushed for 186 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns. Monrovia was derailed, however, by the Paraclete running game led by Melquise Stovall’s 203 yards on 30-carries that not only ate up yardage but much of the game clock. The Spirits built up an

early 19-7 lead only to see Monrovia come all the way back and take the advantage, 21-19, on a 4-yard run by Scoby late in the contest. The Wildcats finish the season with an 11-2 record. Paraclete improves to 9-4 and will face San Dimas in the Mid-Valley Division title game this Friday.
