Jefferson Middle School Robotics Teams Win Championship Tournament by Mrs. Avakian San Gabriel

Jefferson Middle School’s Robotics teams “Catching Fire” and “10.0” competed at the Southern California Championship Tournament held at LegoLand on Sunday, December 8, 2013. After several months of programming and researching, both teams had scored high enough at the qualifying tournament to advance and compete at the championship level. At LegoLand, 56 teams from across California were gathered to share their

innovative ideas in battling Nature’s Fury (this year’s First Lego League theme), robot design, programming, and teamwork. Our teams researched topics on wild fire detection and earthquake safety after visiting Angeles National Forest and Cal Tech, where they learned more about natural disasters from the experts in the fields. Teams also designed and programmed their robots to complete several tasks prescribed by FLL. “Catching Fire” and “10.0” were among the finalists who were called back after the first round of judging to answer more questions about their projects and robots. At

the end of the day, the JMS Robotics teams won Robot Performance Award, Programming Award, and 1st

place Champions Award in Southern California.

A Book Makes a Lasting Impression Meaningful books can definitely impact the lives of young people around the world and they certainly have in the city of San Gabriel. San Gabriel Mission High School has a school-wide summer reading program. The entire school community, including students, staff and faculty read and discuss a novel/memoir written by a strong female role model. As an all girls Catholic College Preparatory High School, SGMHS wants to motivate their young women. According to principal, Jamie Collins, “This has proved to be a very successful program and as faculty and staff, we even spend some time during our overnight retreat at the beginning of the school year sharing our thoughts on the novel.” This year the entire school read My Beloved World by Justice Sonia So-

tomayor. According to Mr. Collins, “Her story touched the entire school on a personal level and has reminded us of the potential each of our young women holds. As principal, I am proud to be a part of a community of educators that cares so much for the young women we have the privilege to teach on a daily basis. Incidentally, many of the struggles and obstacles that Justice Sotomayor faced as a young woman mirrors the struggles and obstacles our young women face

In After discussion about her letter, Justice Sotomayor the book with her Freshmen was very touched by the English class, Mary Mansell letters and as a thank you had her class write letters sent each of the students to Justice Sotomayor.

“The snow tubing park will also be in operation during the day with first session at 8.00am. Tubing is an activity the entire family can enjoy.

The ski lifts can be reached within 60 minutes from most of these areas. Mt. Baldy is just north of Upland and

Coming Home " The Sea Rebel " • Dwain C. Crum •

Dwain Crum “The Sea Rebel”, was born in Pasadena, CA and a lifelong resident of Rosemead, CA. Retired after 29 years as a history teacher at Rosemead High School. Dwain is fulfilling a lifelong dream of traveling around the world. It was in Athens, Greece I finally began the last part of my voyage around the world. In the port of Piraeus, I boarded my 3rd cruise ship during this journey – the Princess Cruise Lines Ship the Sea Princess. At 77,499 GT she was far larger than the Pacific Princess at 30,277 GT (which I was on for 107 days) or the Louis Olympia at 37,584 GT (which I was on for 4 days). There are advantages and disadvantages to both bigger and smaller ships. Having now gone on 22 cruises including two of the three biggest cruise ships in the world the NCL’s Norwegian Epic at 155,873 GT (in 2011) and Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas (also in 2011) at an even more astounding 225,282 GT I feel safe in saying that while the larger ships give you many more choices they lose that feeling on intimacy and importance that you have on the smaller ships. Just in case you were wondering, the RMS Titanic was 46,328 GRT when she sank in on the 14th of April in 1912. I would be spending 50 more days on the Sea Princess before she would dock in San Pedro, CA and I would be back home to Los Angeles, the San Gabriel Valley and my Home in Rosemead, CA. Still, it was a great relief not be packing and unpacking my luggage until I reached home. Many

of those days I would hear the Dierks Bentley song “Home” playing in my head. It gave me comfort and pleasure as I knew that at long last I was returning to see my family and friends and as the song says “the place that I was born”. There was still much more for me to see before my ship got home. First the sights and sounds of many ports in Europe: Mytilene, Istanbul (my 3rd time in Turkey on this trip), Naples Cititavecchia, Livorno, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Cadiz, Lisbon, Cobh, Dublin, Greenock, Le Havre, Dover, Rotterdam, Copenhagen and Oslo. Nor did I always just stay in these ports for example from La Hevre I went on to visit Paris and from Rotterdam I went on to visit Amsterdam. In England, due to the lack of time, I stayed in Dover so I still have yet to go to London (but it’s on my bucket list). In Oslo, I ate lunch at a TGI Fridays (and it turned out to be my last meal in Europe). The Sea Princess was supposed to go to Torshavn (in the Faroe Islands) but we could not land because of the rough seas (just like the Pacific Princess at Easter Island). It was eight straight sea days crossing the Atlantic till we reached New York City (on July 25th) and sailed by the Statue of Liberty. It had been a long time since I had been In the United States

(the Pacific Princess had left Florida on Jan. 27, 2013) and while it was great to be back at the U.S.A. – New York is not California. My 204-day adventure was still not over. A planned stop at Antigua was aborted because of a hurricane but replaced by an unscheduled stop in Curacao. We also stopped in Aruba (where I had been in 2011) and Puntarentas in Costa Rica (my 4th time there). The Sea Princess finally sailed into San Pedro on August 10, 2013 just as planned, my trip around the world finally done. I had visited 48 foreign countries along the way and traveled more miles than I can calculate. It is often said that it is the people you meet that is the best part of any journey. The reason that you hear that is because it so true. More than the places that I visited it is the people I met along the way that I will remember most. The song that is playing in my head today is “Compass” by Lady Antebellum for it too gives me comfort and pleasure and has me smiling as well.

'Jerry's Journey' by Jerry Jambazian

I will preface my ensuing remarks by saying this is my opinion and mine only. Temple City has changed in the last three years more than in the last thirty years!! Temple City government operated in a vacuum for many years. There was hardly any public forums or public input desired or sought. Many times you would see the completed project, good or bad after the fact with people scratching their heads. I have personally attended more public meetings in the last three years than the last thirty combined. This Council is genuinely interested in public input from its citizens. Just recently public input was given for several projects including Parks and Open Space, Master Plan Update, Zoning, Las Tunas Improvement, Rosemead Boulevard Improvement, Sign Ordinance Update. The latest opportunity took place on December 12 as consultants and city leaders conducted “Make TC Happen” by planning it, prioritizing it, and making it happen. This was just the second meeting of strategic planning to engage public input. In my opinion suc-

cessful planning takes place when the people that it affects take ownership and become a part of the plan. The Community Outreach Meeting goal was to develop a Strategic Plan to guide the future policies and decisionmaking for Temple City. The visioning process seeks resident and business owners input to help inform City policymaking and resource allocation based on nine City Council established goals: Vision and Long Range Planning, Sound Fiscal Policy, Public Health and Safety, Sustainable Infrastructure, Economic Development, Basic City Services, Redevelopment, Quality of Life, and Citizen Education and Communication.Temple City Tweets: • Temple City recently had another Lights On Temple City which included twentyfive tons of snow, visits by Santa, a parade on Las Tunas, performances by the Pride of Temple Marching Band who will also be playing in the 2014 Rose Parade, the Brighter Side Singers, crafts, and culminating with the lighting of the 100-foot tall redwood tree by Mayor Sternquist and Santa. Over

1,000 attendees got into the holiday spirit Temple City Style. Kudos to Cathy Burroughs and Mike Koski for another memory making family event. • Temple City is now part of the 27th Congressional District served by Congresswoman Judy Chu. She has a big district, which includes 19 cities including ours. Judy thinks so much of Temple City that she decided to have her annual Christmas Party and Toy Drive at Live Oak Park in Temple City. Over one-hundred-fifty people attended, including many state and local elected officials. Entertainment was provided of course by Temple City High School Brighter Side Singers and band members. I am happy to announce my new website dedicated to everything Temple City. It captures the spirit and community of a great city.

WEBB'S RULES OUR CHRISTMAS TREE

by Eugene R. Webb

I Pray that we shall always see,God’s love flowing from our Christmas tree.It’s not something we can touch with our hand, but love is something we all understand. With love comes faith,hope and joy, helping us to be grateful for Jesus, God’s little boy. Then there is laughter, which puts us in a happy mood; while we are blest throughout the year with good food. We can also be thankful for each and everyday we can accomplish this by taking time to pray.Jesus’s love you will feel, especially during Christmas time. Hopefully, we can live throughout the year with Jesus on our minds. If you would like the Mid Valley News delivered to your business Call 626-443-1753. YOUR CUSTOMERS WILL LOVE IT!!! Lasting Impression continued from page 1 very special people, and I am honored you read my memoir. I enjoyed hearing about your lives and about the parts of my book that had the most meaning to you. Many of your insights were remarkable and made me feel that my work was worthwhile.” She went on to say, “Some of you asked me for advice. The most important piece of advice I ever received was being told that the character of a person was not measured by how many times he or she was knocked down, but by the number of times he or she got up. You will face many challenges in life and perseverance in the face of adversity will reflect the depth of your character.” It seems Justice Soto-

mayor was so taken by the letters she received from the freshmen class that she shared them with her publisher. Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, a division of Random House, contacted SGMHS and requested permission to use the letters in a possible online or printed brochure to show what a positive impact the book made in the classroom. Mr. Collins was delighted with such a great honor for his students at SGMHS. At the writing of this article, the students’ letters are on the Random House High School Facebook page and their Freshmen Year Reading Facebook page. Comments are already being posted.

Rosemead San Gabriel Temple City Rosemead San Gabriel Temple City

Town Tweets by Joe Castillo

Year In Review …. 2013 marked the 100th Birthday of the City of San Gabriel. There were numerous events which honored the momentous occasion but none was more popular than the City’s’ first entry in the Rose Parade in over 40 years. A beautifully designed float depicting the history and Spanish culture of the city won the Director’s Trophy which is awarded based on the size of the float and its use of flowers. The float included riders such as the Pastor of San Gabriel Mission, Bruce Wellems, Gabrieleno representatives, Spanish dancers and the Mayor of San Gabriel Kevin Sawkins. In front of hundreds of thousands of spectators and millions more on television, the float successfully promoted the rich history of San Gabriel and was well worth the long wait and absence from the Rose Parade. The second story would have to be the election of two Chinese Americans to San Gabriel’s City Council. Jason Pu and Chin Ho Lao won election after successfully defeating two long-time incumbents and signaling a new change in San Gabriel politics. Look for a majority of council, if not all members to be of Asian descent in the upcoming years in a city with over 60% of the population now of Asian ancestry. The Alameda-Corridor Trench Grade Separation project got

underway with traffic being forced to be re-routed along major railroad crossings at Mission Road, Del Mar Avenue, San Gabriel Boulevard and Walnut Grove Avenue. The project will continue through 2017 so look for a lot more of the same in the next coming years. Also, it didn’t look like a whole lot of progress on the number one nemesis in the city, the dangerous and underrated pothole. For the second year in a row, the city and most of Southern California experienced a below average rain season. To date, only .86 inches of rain have fallen in the Los Angeles area since July, nearly an inch and a half below normal. Without rain, potholes cannot grow. If they cannot grow, there is no need to fix them before they become bigger. San Gabriel may have found the perfect solution to its ongoing pothole problem by not allowing it to rain the City of Potholes. In the City of Rosemead, Margaret Clark, Sandra Armenta and Steven Ly, all incumbents, were returned to City Council for four more years. Also, the city kept its development plan in check with well-planned and though-out small retail centers and new restaurants at the Montebello Mall, Rosemead Square and along Valley Boulevard. It was a good year of both cities on 2013, let’s move to 2014 with the same positive outlook….

Kiwanis Honors Emperor Elementary School Students by Jerry Jambazian Temple City

The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized three outstanding students from Emperor Elementary School. Accompanying the students was Emperor Media Clerk Mrs. Tessi Ridley. Phoebe is 11 years old and in Mr. Giangregorios’ class. She has an older brother and enjoys doing homework, swimming, singing, running, and reading books. Phoebe said, “The best things about Emperor are being able to hang out with my friends, helping teachers, and learning new things.” The best thing that ever happened was when she adopted her dog Cookie. Personal goals are to stop all fighting wars, build a animal shelter named after her, get straight A’s all year, become first chair in the viola section, and win a swimming contest. Zephania is 11 years old and in Miss Parrilles’ class. She has two sisters and enjoys playing the viola, reading, and singing. Zephania said, “The best things about Emperor are the

caring teachers and staff, my wonderful friends, and we have the greatest Principal.” The best thing that ever happened was going to Catalina with her friends. Personal goals are to eliminate pollution, cure cancer, get straight A’s, improve her musical skills, and be a responsible member of the community. Ashley is 11 years old and in Mrs. Scanlans’ class. She has three brothers and sisters and has enjoyed playing soccer for the past 8 years, and playing handball. Ashley said, “The best things about Emperor are the great teachers and staff, the clean campus, and the nice supplies.” The best thing that ever happened was getting her first iPad for Christmas. Personal goals are to stop child and animal abuse, build a bakery, do better in math, and to try harder in soccer. Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from Cloverly, Emperor,

Longden, Oak Avenue, and the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center. Kiwanis treats students and their teacher to lunch. Students receive a certificate, a letter for their parents, a bumper sticker, a gift certificate from The Hat Restaurant, and a photograph of them receiving their award. Their photo will also be published in Temple City Life, Mid Valley News, Temple City Tribune, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby. Temple City Kiwanis has been serving our community since 1939. Members are dedicated men and women who desire to make a difference in the quality of life for the youth of Temple City.

Rams Out Duel Huskies by Tim Peterson Temple City

Question Isn’t it time for the Dallas Cowboys to start thinking about a new head coach? Happy Days This might be better posted as a second question, but how good does it feel to be Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn tonight? Flynn left the Packers after 2011 to become the starting quarterback in Seattle. Lost the job to rookie Russell Wilson. Was sent to Oakland to be the starting quarterback, but ended up getting released by them. And now, he has engineered one of the biggest comebacks in NFL history with a 37-36 victory in Dallas, over the Cowboys, on Sunday. Quote of the Weekend “All the glory goes to God... and the offensive line.”---St. Louis Rams back up quarterback Kellen Clemens after throwing two touchdown passes to lead the Rams to a 27-16 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Prep Football Rosemead’s 16 touchdown passes in 2013 equaled a decade high set by former Panthers quarterback Angel Alejandre. This season sophomore Steven Nava fired 13 scoring passes, while freshman Patrick Ah-hing added three in early season duty. Did You Know...? Columbia school playground conversation in 1974: “Who would win if Billy Jack fought Bruce Lee?” Who made the playoffs in 2012-2013 in Boys Soccer? Made: Mt. View, Arroyo, Baldwin Park, Sierra Vista, Duarte, Monrovia, Alhambra. Missed: El Monte, Gabrielino, Rosemead, South El Monte, La Puente, Temple City, San Gabriel, Bosco Tech, Arcadia, Rio Hondo Prep. Boys Basketball Note The Arroyo Invitational boys basketball tournament completed this weekend and was won by the La Canada Spartans, who defeated the California Condors, 67-55. To get to the title the Spartans defeated Workman, Montclair, and South El Monte. Girls Basketball Note Arcadia junior forward Caira Benton is leading all area scorers with 13.8 points per game average. Oh, and she is also averaging 16 rebounds per game.

On a night of hot shooting it was the Temple City Rams who had a little bit more in a 70-64 victory over the South Hills Huskies on Friday night. The teams were tied 21-21 after the first period, and the Rams had a 38-36 at halftime thanks to the play of Goren Lee. The returning starter hit a pair of threepointers in the first half and finished the game with five.

Lee led all scorers with 24 points, including eight key points in the fourth quarter to preserve the win. Ali Elhawary added 19 for Temple City and Sean Diep was also in double figures with 13 including three from long range. Jacob Estrada hit three consecutive three point bombs for South Hills to open the game and five overall to lead the Huskies with

19 points. However, Estrada went cold in the fourth missing five straight threes and no points. South Hills was outscored 16-12 in the final period. The Huskies hit 12 three pointers overall while the Rams hit nine. Temple City improved to 3-1 overall while South Hills dropped to 4-3.

‘The Mid’ Area Boys

The Peterson Principal By Tim Peterson

The best quarterback in the Southeast Division? With all due respect to Muir’s Dejon Williams, Diamond Bar’s Tyler Peterson, Crescenta Valley’s Brian Gadsby, Jorge Reyna of Downey, Santa Fe’s Christian Lara and everybody else that is mentioned, doesn’t the discussion start and end with La Serna’s Frankie Palmer? He was the best quarterback on the best team and that alone is enough. He made every play that was required to win a championship and his stats on the field exceeded or matched up with every other candidate. Palmer was just as much a leader off the field as he was on it. His perseverance not just this year but for the past three years exceeded all expectations. Palmer is the guy. It’s really not even close. As far best running back in the Mid-Valley? I like Kurt Scoby, but I like Joseph “The Count” Mayorga too. I also like Melquise Stovall and Fausto Martinez. Does anybody care about the State Bowl games? They seem so anticlimactic. Nordhoff, which won the Northwest Division, lost to Corona Del Mar Saturday night and nobody gave it a second thought. Monrovia lost to Madison last year in a first round State Bowl game and although we covered it, did anybody give a rip? What was more important to M-Town fans last year? Beating Paraclete to win the Mid-Valley Division Championship or losing to Madison in the State Bowl game? If the State Bowl games were eliminated all together I don’t think it would cause a ripple- at least not in the San Gabriel Valley. Finally made the transition to basketball this week. I don’t even think about High School basketball until the football season is officially over. Apparently nobody else thinks about it all judging by the crowd, or lack thereof, at the Arroyo Tournament this week. It’s strange watching a game and being able to hear the squeak of tennis shoes and the sound of the basketball dribbling. I mean it was so quiet you could hear every word the coaches said to the players from the bench. They didn’t need to yell. A normal “inside voice” worked just fine. However Temple City is fun to watch. The Rams run, run, and run some more. They don’t have a lot of size but they simply try to out run you. The team that takes the most shots wins. They played the same way during

Basketball Scoreboard

the Rich Hollinger days and have continued the tradition under current coach Eric Chin. You won’t be nodding off during a 32-28 game watching the Rams play. Friday night they scored 21 points in the first quarter in a 70-64 win over South Hills. I’ve been asking the question all week but still haven’t received a sufficient answer. Why is Mike Antoni still coaching the Lakers? A couple people told me I spelled the coach’s name wrong. But c’mon there’s no D there. That’s my principle.

You spend the first part of the week feeling thrown off -- or maybe just in an abstract state of mind.

Cancer You have no head for details on Monday and Tuesday. In fact, it kind of feels like your brain has turned into something resembling scrambled egg.

Leo Spirits -- and tensions -- are high on Monday, and someone might say something in another room that sounds to you like something else. That could cause you to respond badly.

Virgo The best thing you can give people on Monday and Tuesday isn’t gifts or money or anything material, but total respect.

Libra As much as the world at large wants you to focus on material wealth, the start of the week is a great time to focus on anything not nearly as concrete.

Scorpio It’s no wonder that your mind is a loose collection of images and feelings at the start of the week -- the dreamy quality of the season does that.

Sagittarius You’ve been hitting your wallet pretty hard lately and it may mean you haven’t a penny in your pocket at the start of the week.

Capricorn Giving a card to someone at the start of the week may mean a lot more to them than giving a bouquet of flowers would.

Aquarius Well, you’re out of money. That’s your first thought as you begin thinking about the rest of the week

Pisces The beginning of the week kicks off well. If you’re not being pampered by those in your life, take the time to do so yourself. Really get into it -- or get your engines going on a new creative project.
