The Mother’s Day Legacy: Celebrating Honor and Tradition

El Monte

by Jo Anne Disney

Mother’s Day is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year. Children and adults of all ages honor their mothers on this day. History tells us that in 1872 Julia Ward Howe, a poet and writer who lived in Boston, Massachusetts, made the first suggestion to celebrate Mother’s Day in the United States. She suggested that “people observe a Mother’s Day on June 2nd as a day dedicated to peace.” Then, a Kentucky schoolteacher named Mary Towles Sasseen started conducting Mother’s Day celebrations in 1887. Frank E. Hering of South Bend, Indiana started

a campaign for celebrating Mother’s Day in 1904. However, “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. After an extensive letter writing campaign, (Anna wrote over 10,000 letters according to W.W. Gore), and gaining the support of religious as well as newspaper and government leaders, President Woodrow Wilson announced that Congress had voted to make Mother’s Day a national

holiday. The date was May 8, 1914 and 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. Moreover, in 1934, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, an ardent stamp collector, chose James Abbot McNeill Whistler’s famous painting known as “Whistler’s Mother” to be on a stamp that year. And, the words found on the stamp, “In Memory and Honor of the Mothers of America,” pays tribute to mothers everywhere. In our own neighborhood, we honor on this Mother’s Day Jeanne Courtice. She was born in New York and moved to California and attended UC Santa Barbara. She and her husband Stu have been married for 56 years. They have lived in

Temple City since 1961. They have two children Steve and Debbie and 4 grandchildren: Jennifer, Stephanie, Kevin and Lizzie. Jeanne worked for the Alhambra School District for 15 years. According to Jeanne, Mother’s Day is “an occasion to celebrate a most important job and getting together with family.” Jeanne is very proud of her children and her grandchildren and all of their accomplishments. Another local mom we honor on this Mother’s Day is Jan White. Jan was born at Garfield Hospital in Alhambra and has lived in El Monte since 1948. She remembers her first job was at the El Monte Hardware Store at the age of 13. Then a few years later she got a job at the JCP’s in El Monte at the Valley Mall. She graduated from Nativity School

“We are asking for business in the San Gabriel Valley to join us at this important community job fair,” said Councilman Juventino “J” Gomez, who serves as co-chair of the event along with his colleague Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias. “These sponsorships will help us to attract even

Student's Corner "Te Quiero" (I love you)

Yesenia Melgar, contributing student writer from San Gabriel Mission High School. by Yesenia Melgar

Mother’s day is fast approaching and I have a present to give to my mother figure. That person is my grandmother, since she is the only woman I have received love and compassion from. My grandmother raised me with the love she was never able to give to her kids; she was always working. Maybe that is why she spoils me so much; it’s a way of showing

her love for all her children. Anyway, my mother began leaving me with my grandmother at nine days old. My mother came back from time to time, but she usually just left me in my grandmother’s care. I don't remember much, but what I do remember is my grandmother always being there for me. So maybe this Mother’s Day you won't be giving

something special to your birth mother, but the real mothers in your life, the ones which raise you with the same love they would give to their own children. My life would have been so very different without my grandmother; I probably wouldn't even be alive if it wasn't for her, so “Gracias Nana por todo.”

" Guam To Saigon: Ghosts of War (Part 5)"

• Dwain C. Crum •

Continuing Saga …. I’m not sure how long it takes to figure out someone’s residency but the San Gabriel City Council is setting a new record. Three days worth of hearings took place in council chambers to determine if Chin Ho Liao’s residence is within the city limits or not. The hearings have brought out growing concerns and frustrations with the legal process and council ineffectiveness. A group calling itself the ‘Coalition to Save San Gabriel’ is circulating a petition to place Chin Ho on the city council. Los Angeles area newspapers like the Los Angeles Times and Pasadena Star News, along with Asian Television stations, are covering the historical proceeding. Claims of civil rights violation and race discrimination have been voiced by angry and confused residents. The council chambers have been turned into a pseudo courtroom with council members acting as the judge and jury. According to the San Gabriel city website, the council will discuss the record and issue a ruling on the matter at a special meeting on Monday May 6th. I’ll be out of town and out of state that day, but don’t be surprised if council decides to allow Chin Ho to take his elected seat. I could be wrong, it wouldn’t be the first time, but I think that council members will come to their senses and in order to avoid any further embarrassment as well as possible lawsuits, will seat Chin Ho with only a slap on the wrist. This entire process could have been avoided if only the City and City Council performed its own due diligence prior to the March 5th elections. In the 100th anniversary year of incorporation of the city, city residents are witnessing something that has never happened before in their town or any other town in California for that matter. By challenging the election results of the people you represent is an insult to the electoral process and our U.S. Constitution. Makes you wonder why we even bother to vote if we end up with the council members we have today. …. A Private Press Conference?..... On

Friday May 3rd, the ‘Coalition to Save San Gabriel’ held a news conference at the Mission 261 Restaurant in San Gabriel. The Coalition invited state local officials and other supporters of Chin Ho Liao to persuade council members to vote to seat Chin Ho. But the press conference also had its own controversy and asked those who did not support Chin Ho to leave the restaurant. Also, the Chief of the Kizh-Gabrieleno Band of Mission Indians was asked to leave the conference. Representatives of the tribe had been invited to the press conference to introduce themselves to the attendees of the conference but were identified as non-Liao supporters and were asked to leave. Whatever is happening in San Gabriel is not good. In my opinion, the City, City Clerk and City Council members did not do its own due diligence and investigated Liao before the election. Then Chin Ho was not allowed to take his elected seat. I believe he should have been allowed to take his seat and afterwards an investigation held to determine his residency. Instead the San Gabriel City Council made a mistake to handle the situation itself as they were involved in the mishandling of the situation from the beginning. Watch for more controversy in the future….

Following my visit to Korea the Pacific Princess sailed to two ports in China, but I will talk about that in my next article. For now, I would like to finish the Ghost of War series by talking about my visit to Vietnam. World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War - America became heavily focused on the Pacific during the 20th century. My ship was making two stops in Vietnam. The first stop was at Cai Lan, gateway to Halong Bay. The second port was Phu My, gateway to Ho Chi Minh City. Vietnam is a communist country today. Whereas World War II was a great victory in both Europe and the Pacific for the U.S. and

the Korean War can only be looked on as a stalemate by the most pessimist among us - the Vietnam War was a defeat. When I was growing up in the San Gabriel Valley, the Vietnam War was going on. When I was at Encinita Elementary it was going on. When I was a student at Muscatel Middle School it was going on. When I was a student at Rosemead High School it was still going on. Even today, taking about it stirs up passions about what we should or should not have done during that war. World War II does not stir up those same emotions, nor does the Korean War. The reason - Vietnam is a communist country today. Vietnam is slowly chang-

ing. Since the mid 1990's Vietnam has sort of followed China's lead on how to be a communist nation yet pursue a capitalist economy. A boat ride in Halong Bay is one of the most beautiful in the world and is recognized by UNESCO. It was interesting to note that in Cai Lan the pier was in reality a rusted old ferry and not a modern pier. At Ho Chi Minh City (the former Saigon) things seemed much more similar to the other counties that I visited till I noticed something. I was told there is not one McDonalds in all of Vietnam - not one. In Ho Chi Minh City I went to see the Presidential Palace. Today, the Vietnamese consider the spot where Sea Rebel continued to page 11

and El Monte High. She has three children: Karen, Penni, and Greg; four grandchildren: Jessica, Steven, Tabatha, and Erin and four great-grandchildren: Jaelyn, Emma, Lavelle, and Taylor. According to Jan, Mother’s Day is a time to “reflect on my mom, grandmas and all my ancestors. I wish the family unit could be like it used to be.” Jan retired from Cal-State, Los Angeles after many years of service and now enjoys traveling and visiting her many long-time friends. Another local mom we honor on this Mother’s Day is Linda Miller. Linda was born in Los Angles and lived in Whittier and El Monte. She married her high school sweetheart, Donald Miller and they have been married for 45 years. They moved to Temple City in 1973. They have two sons, Don and Dave and six grandsons:

Andrew, Nick, Thomas, Brian, Ryan, and Hayden. Linda was a stay-at-home mom who volunteered and worked for the PTA and her church. According to Linda, Mother’s Day is a time “for mothers to be grateful for their children, family, and grandchildren. She shared that her sons still love to vacation as a family and she loves how close they all are. 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!

LOVING MOTHER A loving mother is God's special creative treasure; And the love we have for her we cannot measure. A mother is a person who loves you from inside out; That's what I believe that true love is all about.

Honor your mother with all the love in your heart; For in your life she will always be an important part. Without a mother where would we have been? It's great if you realize she is truly your best friend. If you think it's your mother making you feel blue; Often, it's not her, it's something wrong with you. For she is the one person that you can always trust; Over all of her children she will make a big fuss. Mothers can make our life really worthwhile; Just with a kiss, a touch or a great big smile. She'll keep the family together by being so strong; Love you when your right and even when your wrong. Many times she won't like some of the things you do; You can be assured that she'll never stop loving you. Remember, God gave her a lot of wisdom and insight; So hang on to your mother with all your might.

by Eugene R. Webb

Whether your mother is here, passed on or miles apart; I know just thinking of her will warm your heart. Keep in mind a mother does make life worth living; When you think of all the joys she's been giving.

Arroyo and Rosemead Toss it Around

by Joe Torosian

FANVIEW By Joe Torosian

“Wish upon, wish upon, day upon day, I believe oh lord I believe all the way!”---David Bowie

Ask me what I think politically, and I’m ready to go. Ask me what I think about theological and spiritual matters, and I’ve got it down. Ask me what I want for dinner, and I’m down with the get down. Ask me about the Los Angeles Rams, and I’ll tell you I love them. Ask me about the Los Angeles Lakers, and I’ll tell you I could care less. Ask me about the Los Angeles Dodgers, and I’ll tell you I hate their bench. Ask me about the Los Angeles Kings, and I’ll tell you I love the playoffs. Ask me about Dick Enberg, and I’ll tell you he’s underrated. Ask me about Vin Scully, and I can’t say enough. Ask me about the East-West Hall of Fame game scheduled for May 17th... Yeah...I don’t know. I don’t know if there’s been a local sporting event I’ve been all over the yard about like this one. Back in the day I used to ignore this game because I hated exhibition football. When we started covering it I was more than happy to send Duane “Bad News” Barker to it with his camera while I did the Little League playoffs. Then I got dragged to a game. Saw La Canada’s La Velle Peterson dominate a first half. I believe a year later I saw South El Monte’s Tommy Cogburn torch some Charter Oak defensive backs who insisted on covering him in single coverage. Good stuff. Still, it was exhibition football. To me football is football, great to watch, great to be around, but it has to count for something. If guys are going to start knocking heads, it has to mean something. On my way to the game one year I got a call that someone was in the emergency room so I didn’t see it. I thought I would miss seeing the game, but I didn’t. I understand why coaches and schools offering scholarships don’t want their recruits to play in an all star game. But then you see the guy that hasn’t been recruited playing you are happy for him. So, exhibition or not, the game is great because it puts smiles on a lot of faces. I liked it in June, would love it in February, thought it was great to move it to May, but now I don’t know. No one should miss their prom for this game, but if you want to play in it you should. I’m glad its not a nuclear issue, I’m glad its not the fate of the world, I’m glad its only football. But I will forever be conflicted. Contact joe at joe@midvalleysports.com

Arroyo and Rosemead renewed old acquaintances Saturday at B.L. Bergstrom Stadium. The Panthers and the Knights have been butting heads for decades in what is the best rivalry in the Mission Valley League but this wasn’t quite as intense as a Friday night clash in October. Instead it was just a chance to throw the ball around a little bit on a sunny Saturday in May. Arroyo is coming off a third

place finish in the MVL but did advance to the second round of the playoffs after a big win over Bell Gardens. Rosemead

is looking to improve on a year in which it missed the playoffs and went 4-6 overall.

Andrew Policky Returns to Arcadia High School by Joe Torosian

Apaches hire alum Andrew Policky as new head football coach. Policky played for Arcadia in the late 1990’s and served as an assistant on Jon Dimalante’s staff from 2005-2007. The last

two seasons he’s been the head coach at Hoover High School in Glendale. “He’s an Apache alumni and he coached with us from 2005-’07,” said Arcadia assistant Eric Elias. ”He’s a Jon Dimalante guy, like me. He’s a great fit for us. I’m excited about the direction of the program.” Policky takes over for Chris Long who stepped down earlier this year after one season at the helm. Irony, Long also came from Hoover to lead Arcadia in 2012. New Arcadia Head Coach Andrew Policky

The Peterson Principal By Tim Peterson

It's tough being a sports fan in Southern California these days. The Lakers and the Clippers finished off disappointing seasons by being bounced in the first round. Both Mike D'Antoni and Vinny Del Negro are in danger of losing their jobs. UCLA fired Ben Howland after a first round exit and is starting over with Steve Alford. USC dismissed Kevin O'Neill and brought in Andy Enfield to try to right the ship. You like baseball? Ok great. The Dodgers dropped to 13-16 after dropping consecutive walk off losses to the hated Giants and have a team that resembles a M*A*S*H unit. The Angels? Well, they're worse. They fell to 11-20 with another loss Sunday to the Orioles. How long do you think Don

Mattingly and Mike Scioscia will be around if the losing trend continues? With payrolls that make the Yankees look broke both of them could end up standing next to Howland and O'Neill in the unemployment line if things don't get better soon. The football team at USC may have been the most disappointing of all. Lane Kiffin's team finished 7-6 after an embarrassing loss in the Sun Bowl and reportedly there was a brawl that broke out in the locker room following the game. SC has consistently had some of the highest rated recruiting classes in the nation despite being on NCAA probation but those classes didn't translate to victories in 2012. Another season like that and Kiffin will be shown the door.

Matt Barkley was a victim of the poor showing falling all the way to the fourth round of the NFL draft before he was selected. UCLA was better although the Bruins did get hammered in the Holiday Bowl and lost their last three games. Jim Mora however is still the safest coach in So Cal. Well, unless you consider hockey. Unfortunately not many people do. The Kings provided more excitement than any local team lately by winning the Stanley Cup last season, although they are currently down to the St. Louis Blues 2-1 in the first round of the playoffs. The Ducks are contenders as well and are up 2-1 in their series. But take those few brief hockey moments out of the equation and its been a rough go. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Well, the good thing is in sports things can turn around in a hurry. If the Lakers re-sign Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant returns healthy as well as Steve Nash and D'Antoni has a full season to work with the Lakers could return to prominence. If the Clippers re-sign Chris Paul and Blake Griffin takes the next step they will be right back in contention. UCLA and USC are banking on fresh new starts to ignite their programs, and you have to admit, what Enfield did at Florida Gulf Coast was pretty exciting. It's hard to imagine USC football having as bad of a season as it did last year. The Trojans have to get better don't they? It stands to reason that the only way they can go is up. UCLA with Mora and Brett Hundley at quarterback should only get better. It's only May and with guys on the Dodger roster like Matt Kemp, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier, the offense will come around. The ownership group has already shown it will spend whatever it takes to win so I'm sure another pitcher could be on the way before the trading deadline. Josh Hamilton will start hitting eventually and I can't imagine the Angels pitching staying this bad. And of course the Kings and Ducks are ok. So take heart. Hope is on the horizon and soon your favorite Southland team will rise from the ashes and taste the fruits of victory. If not we can always count on our professional football team to pick us up. Oh wait, never mind. That's my principle. Tim can be reached at tim@ midvalleysports.com.

Do You Know Who This Guy Is? On this date in 1973 only 4,777 people came out to see the San Francisco Giants host the St. Louis Cardinals at Candlestick Park. The Giants were 22-9, the Cardinals were 5-19. In the eighth inning San Francsico catcher Dave Rader was lifted for a pinch hitter. That hitter was Chris Arnold, Arcadia class of ’65. Arnold walked and later scored when Bobby Bonds singled to left field as the Giants took a 9-7 victory. Not profound until you see who was playing in this game. The Cardinals had Hall of Famers Bob Gibson and Lou Brock on the field. The Giants line up featured not only Bonds (homered), but Dave Kingman (homered),

Gary Matthews, Tito Fuentes, and Hall of Famer Willie McCovey (homer/triple). Arnold an 11th round draft pick of the Giants in June draft of 1965 played parts of six seasons (1971-1976) with the Giants and then went on to play three years in Japan. Used largely as a utility infielder/ pinch hitter, Arnold batted .237 with four home runs and 51 runs batted in during his career. Two of his four home runs came off Hall of Famers Phil Niekro and Steve Carlton. Arnold now lives in Denver, Colorado where he runs a succesful sports agency.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www.rppsales. com, using the file number assigned to this case 1340686-31. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web Site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. For sales information:(619)590-1221. Cal-Western Reconveyance Corporation, 525 East Main Street, P.O.

Sea Rebel continued from page 6

a communist tank broke the wall there to have been the moment of end of the war. I had my picture taken there at that spot. Not as a communist victory - but as the place the Vietnam War ended. During the 1970's, I registered for the draft but fortunately for me the draft ended before my name had been called. My mom always said that there were two people that I had to thank because their actions ended that war for the United States and saved me for having to serve in Vietnam. Two very dissimilar figures except that they were both controversial, both then and now - Muhammad Ali and Richard Nixon. Ali because he protested the war when he didn't have to and Nixon because he pulled us out of a war which his predecessors would not. If not for them I could very easily have found myself in Vietnam many years earlier and in a very different situation. During one of the tours in Vietnam my guide talked to us about the war and how he had had uncles fight on both sides and that he had lost relatives that he never saw again. He separated himself from the group momentarily but I followed him and saw why he had left - he was crying and he didn't want anyone to see. Peace is better than war.
