Celebrating Mother’s Day Around the World by JoAnne Disney El Monte

celebrated on March 21st. I had the privilege of interviewing Chinese students in Mrs. Sarah Zhou’s Chinese class at San Gabriel Mission High School. The students told me that celebrating Mother’s Day is relatively new in their country. It all began in the 1990’s as our American culture influenced the Chinese, and hence they began to celebrate Mother’s Day on the same day we do. It is becoming more popular as the younger generation buys carnations for their mom’s and spends quality time with them. The students said there are many commercials on television advertising Mother’s Day. They think it is a good idea to celebrate mothers and thank moms for all they do for their children. Other countries that celebrate Mother’s Day on the 2nd Sunday in May are: India, the Philippines, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Books tell us that in Spain, Mother’s Day is celebrated on December 8th which links the religious beliefs in Mary, the mother of Jesus. Other sources tell us that in Mexico “el Dia de la Madre” is a special holiday celebrated on May 10. “Recognition of Dia de Las Madres or Mother’s Day began in 1922 when a journalist, Rafael

left to right: (Peien Li); in the middle her mother (Li Chen); the right her grandmother (Meiheng Tang).

Alducin, wrote an article advocating the celebration of Mother’s Day in all of Mexico. Though the practice had already spread to parts of Mexico, Aludcin’s article led to widespread observance of the holiday, and May 10 became the universal day of celebration in Mexico.” According to www.timeanddate.com “the celebration soon took on religious undertones, with images of the Madonna and Child being displayed on Mother’s Day. The day has gained widespread popularity over the years!” Today, most Hispanic students

celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May, which include all of our American traditions. In Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, there are many descriptive adjectives for the word “mother,” among them to show tenderness and affection as well as to care for and to protect. I think these words are exactly what mothers do. What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than to honor all of the special mothers in your life. So to all mothers, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

ers on this day. History tells us “the woman who started the Mother’s Day holiday we celebrate now was Anna M. Jarvis. She was born in a small town called Grafton, Virginia. Jarvis founded Mother’s Day in honor of her own mother, Anna Reeves Jarvis, who died on the second Sunday in May, 1905.” She also started the tradition of wearing a carnation. Today, it is customary to wear a red flower if your mother is living and a white flower if she is deceased. In addition, on May 8, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson announced that Congress had voted to make Mother’s Day a national holiday. Wilson said, “Everyone everywhere should honor the mothers of our country.” Mother’s Day has been on the second Sunday in May ever since then. Research tells us that in other parts of the world, Mother’s Day is celebrated with other unique dates. In Kenya, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the last Sunday in June, while in Costa Rica it is celebrated on August 15th. In Russia, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the last Sunday in November while in Indonesia it is celebrated on December 22nd. It is told that in most Middle Eastern countries Mother’s Day is

Obiturary Remembering Heather Mary Hooper On March 13, 2014 Heather Mary Hooper passed away after a brave and lengthy battle with cancer, remaining optimistic throughout her fight for life. She was preceded in death by her loving parents Mary and Lester Hooper, and her only sibling, Norman Hooper. She is survived by a number of cousins and relatives, and will be fondly remembered by her many friends, acquaintances and associates. Heather was born on July 1, 1949 and raised in Ventura and Summerland She graduated from Carpentaria High School and moved to Pomona in the late 1970's, which remained her residence for the remainder of her life. Her greatest life passion was family genealogy and with her intelligence, hard working nature

and amazing research skills, she connected with "new" relatives as the result of putting in long hours of research. One of her greatest joys was locating the burial site of some of your ancestors interned at the oldest non-sectarian cemetery in Southern California, Savannah Memorial Park in Rosemead. Heather became an invaluable asset as a dedicated volunteer and knowledgeable board member for this historic cemetery and was instrumental in helping Savannah receive a California Historical Landmark designation. She welcomed requests from relatives of those buried at the Cemetery who wanted to learn more about their deceased relatives and was always willing to help in any way she could for the betterment of Savannah. Heather’s dedi-

cation and resourcefulness will be missed by all those who knew her and she will forever be admired for her fortitude and determination in living her productive and fulfilling life. A memorial service will be held at a later date. If you would like more information, please contact Janice Wiggins White at (626) 443-8325. In honor of her memory, please consider a donation to Savannah Memorial Park, P.O. Box 4247, El Monte, CA 91734.

Letter to the Editor Dear Mid Valley News Editors: It was with interest that I read Joe Castillo's recent report in his "Time Jockey" column about Savannah Pioneer Cemetery. Having been a Board Member for over 20 years, I find myself surprised by some of his "revelations" pertaining to the work of the Board Members and the cemetery itself. Savannah, located at 9263 Valley Blvd., in Rosemead, has a colorful and historical background, being an integral part of the community since the late 1800s, when Henry Dalton made the first discovery of it as an Indigenous Indian burial spot. It has become the final resting place for multiple generations of the region's pioneer families since then. Being an active, nonendowment cemetery-- in essence a business-we are attempting to meet current financial challenges, especially during the financial difficulties our nation has endured the past few years. The current severe drought has added additional hardships in meeting the costs for watering and lawn maintenance. After over a decade of rigorous and exhaustive volunteer hours striving to obtain historical landmark status, granted by the State of California in 2013,

the original goal of the EI Monte Cemetery Association remains of track with a continued and unified effort to preserve, restore, maintain, and beautify the grounds at Savannah, so as to reflect the City of Rosemead's community pride and the historical representation in the collective memories of the San Gabriel Valley. While donations are down and fundraising efforts failing to meet the needs for water and landscape care, the Board voted to take the cemetery in a progressive and new direction by designing the burial grounds as a "Water Conservation Garden" and with the efforts of Aqua Save, the City of Rosemead, M.C. Gill Corporation and countless other sponsors, we are actively moving in a direction that will meet the challenges of reducing our water bill while beautifying the property. The Board is moving forward to lessen the amount of grass, add a new sprinkler system, introduce mulch under the trees, including new trees Rosemead recently donated, add decomposed granite and drought tolerant vegetation. All of these time-appropriate changes are meant to create an environment that resembles the historical features of the San Gabriel Valley. An unfortunate by-product, Joe Castillo has articu-

lated, is that this plan was not thoroughly discussed nor a proper business plan set in place. Savannah's progressive plans do have substance and include many donations which will facilitate controlling financial costs for the cemetery into a manageable budget. While some of our phases may not make the deadline, it is not because of actions by the Board, or a "bad" business plan, or some other imagined "failure," but rather our reliance for the donor to present its donation. We continually seek monetary contributions from the community and at this time we are thrilled with our beautification and water conservation projects. Please stop by the cemetery and watch the work of the Board as we transform Savannah Pioneer Cemetery into a community hub with an environment ~rovides a water conservation garden, a place for community to honor cultural and historical traditions, and a place to remember our early American pioneers and the challenges they experienced, Bob Bruesch, Secretary of El Monte Cemetery Assoc.

EMUHSD Athletic Hall of Fame 2014 Inductees

by JoAnne Disney El Monte

History tells us that the El Monte Athletic Hall of Fame was organized in 1991 “to recognize and preserve the history of prominent individual, team, and humanitarian accomplishments associated with athletics. Since 1997, El Monte’s Hall of Fame Committee has been inactive with the retirement of founder, Mr. Robert H. Settle. In July of 2011, the Hall of Fame Committee was re-established by former members, as a sevenmember executive council. A sub-committee was added representing the El Monte Union High School District that includes the Superintendent, Mr. Nick Salerno, and the six Principals representing Arroyo, El Monte, Ledesma, Mountain View, Rosemead, and South El Monte High Schools.” On May 10, 2014 the El Monte Unified High School District Athletic Hall of Fame will honor 9 new inductees. Among those honored will be: Frank Clayton, “who began his teaching and coaching career for the El Monte Union High School District in 1957. Frank coached the Arroyo High School Varsity High School

Varsity Track and Field team to the Championship in 1960.” Frank held various positions, including the Principal of Arroyo from 1972 to 1979 and the District’s Deputy Superintendent from 1979 until his retirement in 1990;” Lance Larson, was a 1958 graduate of El Monte High School. “He set CIFSS records in 1957 & 1958 in the 100-yd butterfly at 55.5 & 54.6 seconds, & another CIFSS record in the 100-yd freestyle at 50.9 seconds. He was the first high school swimmer to break the 50-second barrier in the 100yd freestyle.” Also, Lance Larson was one of the premier swimmers of his era. In the 1960 Rome Olympics he was a double medalist taking a Silver Medal in the controversial 100m freestyle and a Gold Medal as a member of the 4x100m Medley Relay.” In addition, “he was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 1980;” Don Cawthon, “was born and raised in El Monte. He was always active in athletics, capturing awards and lettering at El Monte in football, basketball, and track. Don graduated in 1954 and also served on the

original staff of our El Monte Public Pools.” Also, Don has continued to officiate in wrestling for over 50 years. As a result he was presented with the California Wrestling Hall of Fame Lifetime Service Award in 2008 and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Lifetime Service Award in 2012;”Fernando Ledesma, “began his career in the EMUHSD teaching Spanish and coaching Track and Field at Arroyo. He coached the team to championships and one CIF title. He retired as the Assistant Superintendent of Adult and Alternative Education after 39 years of service to the EMUHSD in 1997. In 2005, the continuation high school in El Monte was renamed after Fernando for all of his work and dedication to the youth of the community.;” Kim Rhode, graduated from Arroyo High School in 1996, as a four-year Letterman in competitive shooting. “She is the youngest woman in the world to earn a spot on the Olympic shooting team. Kim’s Olympic career began at the age of 17, winning the Gold Medal in 1996 in Atlanta. She has won an Olympic Medal in

each of the last five Olympic Games for shotgun shooting;” Harry Nissley, “served as a teacher and tennis coach at El Monte High School until his retirement in 2001. His enthusiasm, dedication, and care for students is exemplary of an outstanding educator. Mr. Nissley has been inducted into the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Hall of Fame. The tennis courts at El Monte High are named in Harry’s honor;” Janet Dykman, “attended Arroyo High and started archery as a youth by participating in Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD).” She “started competing in 1985 and made her first World Championship Team in 1989 competing in Switzerland. Janet is Co-Founder of United JOAD and So. Cal. Archers.” She has been given many honors including “United State Olympic Committee Archery Athlete of the Year in 1995, 1996, 1997, & 1998; Don LaMont, began his professional career ‘with the El Monte Elementary District as a teacher at Frank Wright from 1961 to 1979. He became the head swim coach of a 200

member team with the El Monte Parks and Recreation where he coached for many years.” Among his many honors and achievements includes “USA Head Team Swim Coach in New Zealand, Italy, France, Russia, and West Germany as well as Head Coach for the 1984 Olympics team in Taiwan. In 2008, he was “inducted into the American Swim Coaches Hall of Fame;” and George Allison, who first served as the head basketball and tennis coach at Arroyo High School.” Later “he became an administrator at El Monte High until he retired. He was inducted into the McMinnville High School Sports Hall of Fame on May 10, 2008.” The ceremony will take place at the El Monte Community Center, 3130 Tyler Avenue. The festivities will begin at 11:30 a.m. For more information, please contact Donna Gunstream-Breit at (909) 599-9465 or gunbrt@ aol.com. Congratulations to all of the Hall of Fame Inductees!

‘Time Jockey’ Wash Rules by Joe Castillo

Before Maytag …. I came across a set of rules or tasks to follow for washing the laundry during the early days of the pioneer settlers. I guess it depended on what part of the country you were from and where you were settling but it made me think how much things have actually changed since the days without automation. These rules weren’t written down or set in stone but were passed from mother to daughter to granddaughter and so on. The tasks started with building a fire in the backyard to heat a kettle of water. Be sure to set the tub in the right position so the smoke does not get in your eyes in case wind is present. Next shave a whole cake of lye soap in the boiling water. Sort clothes into three piles: one for white, one for colored, and one for rags and britches. Stir in flour in cold water until smooth, and then thin out with boiling water to make starch. Rub dirty spots on a board, and then boil them. Rub colored clothes but do not boil them. Take white items out of the kettle with a broom handle, then rinse, blue and starch. Hang clothes for drying. Pour rinse water into flower beds. Scrub privy seat and floor with soapy water. Turn tubs upside down. Put on a clean dress and comb hair. Make a cup of tea to drink while you sit and rest a spell, and count your blessings. These tasks took place as cleaning clothes improved from going to a nearby stream and before a washing machine was invented. It was a set of simple tasks which made use of natural ingredients like fire, soap and water. It may have taken longer than it does today but back in the 19th century there was plenty of time available to take care of household chores…. Flag History… The Flag of the United States was first used in 1771 when 13 stars and stripes were included in the design of the flag. The 13 stars and stripes represented the original 13 colonies. From 1795 to 1818, a new design was created with 15 stars and 15 stripes. This was established to include new states Tennessee, Louisiana, Ohio and Indiana but the actual total number of states in the union at that time was 19 states. Beginning on July 4, 1818, the U.S. Flag returned to 13 stripes and it was decided to only add a new star when a new state was admitted into

the union. California was the 31st state admitted into the Union and a new flag was created on July 4, 1851. Since July 4, 1960, when Hawaii was admitted as the 50th state of the Union, the U.S, Flag has not changed its design. The design of 50 stars and 13 stripes was the 27th design of the U.S. Flag….

Astronaut Jose Hernandez Inspires Students by JoAnne Disney El Monte

April 29, 2014 was a memorable day for students at San Gabriel Mission Elementary and High Schools as they had the privilege of meeting Astronaut Jose Hernandez up close and personal. Students, teachers, staff, and parents all gathered in the San Gabriel Mission High School Auditorium to listen to what proved to be a most inspirational and motivational presentation. Astronaut Hernandez began by informing the audience that he was going to tell them all a story. He continued by saying with hard work and determination, “anything is possible if you work hard and do well in school.” He came from a background of very humble beginnings, as his parents were immigrant farm work-

ers. From a very early age, his parents along with him and his siblings, picked crops and spent 9 months out of the year in California and 3 months in Mexico. Astronaut Hernandez said that his life changed in the second grade, when his teacher came to speak with his parents and explained how continually uprooting their children would not let them reach their full potential. His parents took her advice to heart and settled around the Stockton area. Astronaut Hernandez shared that despite being born in California, he really didn’t learn the English language until his was 12 years old. After watching the Apollo 17 Mission on TV, at the early age of 10, he decided he wanted to become

an astronaut. He said when he told his dad his plan, his dad took him into the kitchen in their home and sat him down for a serious talk. His dad said, “I think you can do it.” His dad give him 5 ingredients to succeed: 1) identify what you want to be, 2) recognize how far you are from that goal, 3) draw yourself a roadmap and outline the steps, 4) get a good education, and 5) always give more than your teachers expect. Astronaut Hernandez added one more ingredient which is perseverance; never give up. He shared with the audience that NASA turned him down 11 times for the space program, but the 12th time was the charm. After extensive training, on August 28, 2009 he blasted off into space to realize his dream. His parents and second grade teacher were there and continue to be proud of

his accomplishments. Astronaut Hernandez recently published a book entitled, “Reaching for the Stars.” He said that a screen play is in the works and pos-

WEBB'S RULES MY MOTHER by Eugene R. Webb

My mother had a heart made out of gold; She lived to be ninety eight and a half, but she wasn't old. Her hair was short and always in place; My dear mother had a beautiful face. Lucy to many, but she will always be Mom to me; For my mother was as special as she could be. With each year I seemed to grow just a little taller; Surprisingly, my dear little mother had gotten smaller. No matter what the Attorney General was going to say; My mother liked having things her very own way. So cigarettes, dear old Mom did continue to smoke; She also enjoyed hearing or telling a good joke. Mother had worked real hard her whole life through; And she was known to drink a beer or two. In her family, Mom was always number one; But to her father, she was more like a son. Yes, my mother was really an amazing gal; Would drink warm milk squirted from the tit of a cow. She rarely would ever wear any kind of a dress; Just a pair of levis was what Mom liked best. Mother loved all animals, especially a goat; When it comes to letters, she hardly wrote a note. My Mom was a woman that was real down to earth; I thank God she was the one who gave me birth. Fresh bread, my mother would always bake; And every week we also got her famous Raisin Cake. But mother never really ever cared to cook; She did enjoy reading a real good Zane Grey Book. Mother could ride a horse, especially Old Tom; There never was a dull minute with my dear Mom. So after my mother, God threw away the mold; Mom remained young at heart, she refused to grow old.

Entertainment AXS TV's Triumphant Tribute Show by Sal Gomez Hollywood

After 3 seasons on AXS TV, The World's Greatest Tribute Bands show broadcast a 90 minute "After-Party" program from the beautiful Club Nokia Theater in Downtown L.A. featuring the very first tribute band to grace their screen, The Beatles Tribute Band "Britain's Finest." Having had the privilege of attending both of these shows, I felt it only fitting to take a moment to find out what the experience is like for the talented musicians and artists selected to appear on this nationally broadcast television show. And what about the show’s fabulous hos, Katie Daryl? I asked for her thoughts on the show and the experience of being not

only the on-air host but the producer as well. Katie Daryl: I've now produced 38 episodes of The World's Greatest Tribute Bands and I might actually be more excited for Season 4 than any other season! The word is spreading about the show; I have bands reaching out to me from all over the world wanting me to review their submissions. And I have fans emailing daily suggesting their favorite bands and expressing their love for The World's Greatest Tribute Bands. So getting to roll up my sleeves and start the scouting process for Season 4 has me really amped up! MVN: And what can you tell us about season 4? Katie Daryl: When it comes to my vision for Season 4, first

This story will continue in the next issue of Mid Valley News 5/13/14. and foremost I think about our TV audience. Sure this is a really fun free event to go to in LA, but the purpose of The World's Greatest Tribute Bands is to make awesome LIVE TV. It's so incredible to work in the LIVE TV format, knowing that anything can happen during our broadcast and our AXS TV viewers across the nation will get to witness that is pretty thrilling. So as I look for my bands to feature, I have to keep in mind what our AXS TV audience likes to watch. AXS TV just broadcasted LIVE from the Coachella, Jazz Fest and StageCoach festivals, so I know our viewers appreciate great music, the like country, they like current, and they love the classics so I guess you could say Season 4 will reflect that this fall!

South El Monte High Students Get Realistic Look at Dangers of Drinking and Driving

All of this sounds very interesting and enticing. This would mean there are acts out there probably very curious to know about what the experience is like to actually perform on stage and in the living rooms of households across the country. As I said, having attended a good portion of these shows and getting to know these performers, I was able to reach out to a few of them to get their take on this experience. This is what they had to say: Mick Adams and The Stones The Stones Tribute Band Mick Adams: "I think "The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands" has done a number of things for the tribute band community.

South El Monte High School students got a first hand look at the perils of drinking and driving when the school presented the "Every 15 Minutes" program. South El Monte High School was the first school in the El Monte Union High School District to present this very realistic program to its students several years ago which is a partnership between the California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department along with the

support of various other agencies including Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.), the City of South El Monte, Los Angeles County Fire Department, Greater El Monte Hospital, A.M.R. Ambulance, Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, Freddie Mac’s Towing, Double Tree Hotel, Mercy Air, Pierce Brothers Mortuary, Sandoval Towing Inc., Makeup Effects by Stan Burwell, Rodas Studios.com, Snackfast Vending, Tacos El Chaparrito, El

Monte Subway on Garvey, South El Monte High School PTSA, Cardinal Finishes and DeWitt Petroleum. "Every 15 Minutes" is a program where agencies from our local community work together with our high school in an effort to produce a strong message on the dangers associated with driving while impaired," said Principal Oscar Cisneros. "This realistic approach demonstrates the horrors of M.A.D.D continued on page 10

putting us in homes all over the country. Two, it's really brought the tribute bands who've been exposed to this even closer together creating somewhat of a "tribute fraternity". We've all become very supportive of each other and love the fact that if we're not playing on a Monday night, that we're at the AXS shows supporting each other, the artists performing that night as well as Katie Daryl and the show itself. I personally, have appeared on the show twice and now my band, "Mick Adams

drinking and driving and reminds our students that making the right choice will save lives." The program begins as a sheriff's deputy, dressed as the "Grim Reaper," pulls one student out of class every 15 minutes. As the student leaves, an announcement is made over the public address system that the school has just been notified that one of South El Monte High School's students has been killed in a drunk driving accident. The students taken from class are escorted to a holding area. As prearranged with the students' parents, a sheriff's deputy knocks on the door of the home of each of the students informing the parents that their child has been killed. The students remain overnight in the care of the school to further stress to family and friends that they are now deceased. Students participate in discussions with counselors and volunteers as parents meet with a Mothers Against Drunk Driving representative. Parents, in advance, have written obituaries for their children which are read at an assembly the following day after which parents and students are reunited for the first time in 24 hours, hopefully with a better understanding of the consequences of drinking and driving. Another component of the program deals with staging a drunk driving accident for the students to witness. Students are made up to look like accident victims with cuts, bruises, broken bones, embedded glass and plenty of blood. "I didn't realize the guilt I would feel until I saw the make-up being applied to my friends who would be involved in the accident," said the student selected to play the drunk driver responsible for the accident. "I walk away with just a few cuts and bruises after causing the deaths of the others." The simulated accident scene is made even more realistic by the use of the jaws of life to extract those in the car, by an ambulance taking injured students to the hospital, by the coroner taking the bodies of those killed to the morgue, and by the student driver being handcuffed and taken off to jail to undergo the booking process. Mercy Air transported victims to the hospital via a helicopter that landed on the school's athletic field. "I think this is a valuable program because it allows students to experience in a small way the devastating effects caused by drunk driving accidents," said Assistant Principal Olga Lopez. "We have these programs right before prom and graduation festivities as a reminder to

Mid Valley News students to make the right choices and avoid potential life changing choices such as drinking and driving. Students and parents have an opportunity to reflect on the dangers, pain and loss that can result from making a bad decision such as driving drunk." "Our students were very open, receptive and reflective as they were presented with the program," said Cisneros. "I am pleased that we were able to provide our students with this experience." "This program has definitely reinforced my resolve not to drink and drive," said one student. "After seeing this, I would not get in the car of someone who has been drinking," said another. "We are very appreciative of all of the agencies, community partners, as well as of our students, parents and staff for their contributions to making the Every 15 Minutes program a success," said Cisneros. "When it comes to protecting and teaching our children about the potentially tragic consequences to their choices, this community consistently comes together and is selfless in its efforts to instill strong values in the young members of our community."

El Monte Continues to Eradicate Illegal Fireworks by Imposing $1,000 Fine by Valerie Martinez El Monte

This Fourth of July season, the City of El Monte is once again taking a zero tolerance approach to illegal fireworks by imposing some hefty fines. Thanks to the ordinance passed by the City Council in 2013, those caught using illegal fireworks will face a $1,000 fine. The Ordinance will also make property owners liable for illegal fireworks used on their property, as well as parents whose children are caught violating the new rules. “Our families deserve to be able to celebrate our nation’s independence with a safe and fun celebration and unfortunately these fireworks have become a danger in our City,” said Mayor Pro Tem Bart Patel, the Founder and Chair of the City’s Ad Hoc Fireworks Committee. “We had great success last year limiting illegal fireworks and we want to continue that momentum this year so our residents stay safe during this festive holiday. We will have an armada of police officers patrolling the streets issuing fines to those that choose to endanger our residents.” Over the past few years,

there has been overwhelming resident concern over the use of illegal fireworks, which has led to serious injuries, property fires and an overburdened El Monte Police Department. Last year, a task force comprised of the El Monte Police Department and Los Angeles County Fire Department Arson unit seized more than 92,000 lbs. of illegal fireworks during sting operations in several area cities, resulting in 45 felony arrests. Approximately 74 individuals were cited for using illegal fireworks by the El Monte Police Department. “Our top priority is to keep this community safe,” said Councilmember Juventino “J” Gomez. “We hope that these harsher penalties will dissuade individuals from using these dangerous devices so that our families can focus on enjoying our nation’s Independence Day.” The City encourages residents to support local nonprofits by purchasing safe and sane fireworks at various firework stands throughout El Monte. Many local nonprofits count on the stands to serve as a major

fundraiser for their organizations. El Monte is one of 39 Los Angeles County cities that allow the sale of “safe and sane” fireworks, which are fireworks that don’t explode or leave the ground. Legal fireworks will all contain a “safe and sane” seal from the State Fire Marshall. Legal fireworks may only be used on July 3rd and July 4th between 10 a.m. and 11 p.m. Legal fireworks used outside that time period will be subject to the same $1,000 fine. According to the United States Fire Administration, in 2010, U.S. hospital emergency rooms treated an estimate 8,600 people for firework-related injuries, with the majority of the injuries happening around the weeks surrounding the Fourth of July. To report illegal fireworks, please call 626-580-2171 or email fireworks@elmontepd. org. All reports will be kept confidential. For more information, visit the City’s website, EMPD’s Facebook and Twitter page, or El Monte Channel 3.

Kranz Intermediate and Madrid Middle School Marathon Runners Honored by Michele Earle El Monte

Strong minds and strong bodies, that’s what members of the Kranz Intermediate School and Madrid Middle School Students Run L.A. (SRLA) teams have. Displaying unwavering courage, determination, endurance, and strength the athletes from Kranz and Madrid successfully participated in the 29th annual Los Angeles Marathon as part of the SRLA program. Twenty-six students from Madrid and 23 from Kranz were among the nearly 24,000 entrants for the event held March 9. Running the 26.2 miles from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica, the students not only learned what it takes to finish the epic marathon, but discovered that hard work and determination will get them across any finish line in life. The Kranz and Madrid teams began training in September and participated in several running events including 5k and 10k runs as well as half marathons leading up to the final challenge of the 26.2 mile L.A. Marathon. “Running in SRLA takes discipline, commitment and

a positive attitude,” said Merce Chavez, SRLA coach for Madrid School. “We trained 3 days a week since September and the hard work paid off. It was a very hot day and a few of us had to overcome some struggles, but we all finished the marathon and I’m so very proud of the students.” Through participation in SRLA, students learn to set goals and feel a great sense of accomplishment when they achieve their goal of completing the 26.2 miles. “Setting a goal and reaching it is very affirming, especially a goal like the marathon,” said Chavez. “The students realize that they can accomplish anything they set their minds to.” Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the SRLA program has grown to include 3,200 students throughout California, providing them a chance to realize a goal through training for and running in the marathon. SRLA provides student runners with two pairs of sneakers and race day uniforms, as well as entrance into minimarathons and other races

First Off: Go Clippers! Brave New World: "You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games."--Donald Sterling, racist. "A handkerchief-head, chicken-and-biscuit-eating Uncle Tom." -- Spike Lee (on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas), respected filmmaker. Comment: What a world we live in. Best remedy? When your life sucks (Sterling), when your films suck (Lee), when your team sucks, blame the dude in the mirror and not someone else. Fix it yourself. Good News Department: “The EMUHSD Athletic Hall of Fame Luncheon will be held on May 10, 2014. We are still looking for some of the EMHS 1985 CIF Softball Champion players. This team will be inducted into the Hall of Fame along with Frank Clayton, Fernando Ledesma, Kim Rhode Lance Larson, Janet Dykman, Don LaMont, George Allison, Don Cawthon and the Arroyo softball team of 1986. Reservations are being accepted now. Contact the District Office.”---Donna Gunstream-Breit Impressive Work Department: After all the drama, all the media scrutiny, and playing a really good basketball team, the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Golden State Warriors in game seven of its first round series and have advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs. Pro Football: You can have the NBA playoffs...The NHL playoffs are usually worthwhile... but few things, if nothing, beats the NFL Draft. When there is no football being played, this event which will be live Thursday night, is the next best thing. If you get a chance catch the NFL Network series “Caught in The Draft,”, which breaks down previous NFL drafts from 1974, 1984, 1994, and 2004. Awesome. Finally: Go Kings!

confidence, find self-esteem, shed insecurity, and learn to believe in themselves. SRLA – Marathon Runners Honored “We appreciate the opportunity to have our students participate in the SRLA program and it is wonderful to see them work hard and discover their unlimited potential,” said Kranz principal, Ray Andry. “These students successfully accomplish a feat many adults couldn’t do. They come away with such a sense of accomplishment and learn that if they can run the L.A. Marathon then anything is possible!” Along the marathon course, Kranz and Madrid staff members and parents could be found encouraging the students, providing refreshments and cheering them on. “Our parent volunteers were wonderful,” said Hernandez. “At mile 16 one of our moms had refreshments for us and seeing a familiar face really inspired our kids and pumped them up to continue their journey and finish the marathon.” Madrid eighth grader, Brian Arellano-Aguilar was glad he participated on Madrid’s SRLA team. “Being in SRLA taught me responsibility and showed me about setting a goal and working hard to achieve it. I learned with hard work, determination and focus I can reach my goals.”

The Peterson Principle By Tim Peterson

The Lakers were nowhere to be seen, and although I’m not ready to abandon the Laker ship anytime soon (a fan for 40 years) I have to admire what the Clippers have accomplished. To beat the Warriors after everything that has gone on in the past week showed something that is rarely seen in Clipper teams. They could have wilted under the bright lights and pressure of a national story that was suddenly thrust upon them, but instead they embraced it and survived. They lost game four after owner Donald Sterling’s racist comments were made public, but rebounded to win game five, lose game six by one and then win game seven. Whether you like the Clippers or not, whether you agree with Commissioner Adam Silver’s decision or not, it’s hard not to appreciate the toughness that the Clips displayed in dispatching Golden State. If Doc Rivers wasn’t recognized as one of the best coaches in the game before he certainly is now. He summed it up best after the grueling win in the seventh game. “I just thought this team really needed the game. I just really wanted us to win. I just thought with all this stuff, this team just needed a win,” he said. Blake Griffin has had the best year of his career. Clipper fans have been waiting for Griffin to put it all together, to see all of that potential come to fruition. This was that year. But make no mistake, Chris Paul is the MVP of this team. Speaking of the Lakers, in case you didn’t hear, Mike D’Antoni resigned last week. What should the Lakers do? Get Rivers at all costs. Isn’t he the coach of the Clippers you ask? Well yes. For now. But he won’t work for Sterling next year and the truth is Sterling will still be the owner. He was banned for life but he won’t sell, even if the owners vote that he has to. Sterling will fight this until the day he dies. The legal battles could drag on for years. Rivers won’t want to be a part of that process and all he would have to do is move across the hall. It’s a perfect fit. It would be the best move Jim Buss has ever made. Buss has botched the last two coaching moves, hopefully he doesn’t strike out. Yes the Clippers series was great, but can you ever remember the NBA playoffs being this good on

Diamond Doings BASEBALL It’s a Twister Head Coach Randy Twist and his Arroyo baseball team has run off a five game winning streak and handed Rosmead its first Mission Valley League loss last week with a 4-3 victory. Keeping Pace The Baldwin Park Braves have won four games in a row thanks to the solid pitching of Jordan Palacio and the hitting of Christian Barraza. On The Flipside The Monrovia Wildcats have lost three in a row and fallen from first to second. Dave Moore and Brad Blackmore’s team will look to right things today at home against Temple City. The Rams have lost three of their last four Rio Hondo League games and have gone from being tied for first to third place. The Good Ship Alhambra Not only has a 17-3 record, but they are also 11-0 in Almont League play. In twenty games this season, the Moors pitching staff has only allowed 34 runs.

Currently they are riding a seven game winning streak and are just one game out of first place in the Mission Valley League. Arroyo One More Time Over 60 high schools are in CIF’s Division IV, and the Knights lead them all in runs scored with 121. Next closest local team? South El Monte with 99. They are also tied with three other schools of the division lead in home runs with 22. So So Cold

The Rosemead Panthers have lost 18 consecutive games. Fanning The Flames Monrovia pitcher Adrienne Guerra in 107 innings of work has struck out 157 batters Speaking of Monrovia Wildcats center fielder/ shortstop Elise McCarthy has an on base percentage of .697 That means McCarthy is getting on base seven out of every 10 times she comes to the plate. For perspective Ty Cobb, considered the greatest hitter in baseball history, had a career batting average of .366 and a .433 on base percentage.
