Citrus College Reaches 100 Percent of its Transfer Degree Goal

As California’s community colleges work to enhance transfer rates and formalize students’ courses of study, Citrus College is one of only five community colleges statewide that successfully met its target in developing new transfer degrees to the California State Universities (CSU). Citrus not only met its goal of 13, it exceeded it by creating a 14th degree. Citrus College, along with

the other 111 California community colleges statewide, began to develop new transfer degrees after the Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act was signed into law in 2010. The law simplifies the transfer process so that students who complete an associate degree designated for transfer are guaranteed admission to the CSU system with junior status and will be given priority consideration when applying to their

local CSU campus. Students have enthusiastically responded to the opportunity to receive an Associate

graduates receiving a transfer degree has increased dramatically. The first Citrus College graduating class to receive associate degrees for transfer was the Class of 2012, in which 42 students received AA-T and AS-T degrees. In 2013, that number blossomed to 258 students and, for the first time, the AA-T in psychology was one of the college’s top 10 majors.

“I am so proud of Citrus College for being at the forefront of this new statewide initiative, said Mrs. Susan M. Keith, president of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees. “I am most grateful for the hard work and dedication of our faculty and staff in achieving this impressive goal. I also thank Dr. Perri and the entire college community who work so diligently to provide our students with the resources they need to succeed.” Citrus College developed

Studies on music and brain development suggest that early exposure to music increases a child’s language development and math skills, and increases memory function. Additionally, research has shown that children who are able to distinguish different sounds are more likely to develop stronger literacy skills over time. First 5 California’s free online music station from Pandora makes it easier than ever to integrate the power and fun of music into the lives of children to improve development. The station features songs geared at early learning and play to encourage physical activity and brain development. Here are some tips from First 5 California to increase and appreciate your child’s development taking place through listening to music at www.pandora.com/kidsstation: Singing and listening to music is a great way for toddlers to develop language and learning skills. • Rhyming songs help your

Around Town by Mavis Hansen Vacation is over and all those wonderful days by the ocean are now just wonderful memories. After such delightful summer weather, it seems as if Mother Nature has saved all the really hot days for the Labor Day Weekend and the end of summer. Autumn will officially begin on Sunday, September 22 this year and we will all be looking forward to the cooler autumn weather. Labor Day celebrated on the first Monday in September, the holiday for the working people, began on September 5, 1882, with a parade in New York City. In 1884 the holiday was moved to its current day in September. Labor Day first became a legal holiday in Oregon in 1887 and it became a national holiday in 1894. Today, Canada and Puerto Rico also celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday in September. The day is observed with parades, labor-group meetings, picnics and sporting events. The weekend preceding Labor Day has also become part of the holiday. However you chose to spend your holiday, hope that you had a day full of fun doing whatever you like to do best with family

Growing old you’d think are the days of glory; We can bend over, but getting up is another story. Getting old never makes a person glad; Talking about the health problems they’ve had. Everybody likes saving money in any amount; Real old, when not asked, just given a senior discount. Getting lucky means finding your car in a parking lot; Yet we must be grateful for everything we have got. You’re really old when you get winded playing cards; And it’s a real trip just to stroll around in the yards. It takes two or more tries to get up and out of bed; Then for three or four minutes I just scratch my head. I don’t know if I’m leaving the room or just coming in; And I can tell you growing old there is no way to win. A pacemaker makes a garage door go up and down; And old timer is lucky if they can keep hanging around. People born after 1928 have no idea what I am saying; They think that it’s a joke and that I’m just playing. It’s hard to believe that an old timer can live so long; When we have so many things that can go wrong.

‘Time Jockey’ El Monte Museum by Joe Castillo

Zombies Invade Santa Anita Park with the Inaugural Zombie Blood Run Arcadia

Unique Artifacts …. There are a number of interesting museum in the San Gabriel Valley but the El Monte Historical Association is one of the more unique museums. On my last visit to the museum I took the time to note some of the more unique items in their collection. Besides having a vintage World War II era Rolls Royce used by Sir Winston Churchill, the museum is filled with artifacts from the early years of El Monte. A photograph of the first public school built in Southern California and located in El Monte is on display. The Southern California Christian Home, originally built in 1950 as a 3-story wooden frame house, was located on Mission Drive in the present city of Rosemead. The first Protestant Church in Southern California was also built in El Monte in 1853, and a photograph of the church is located in the museum. It was also interesting to read the old newspapers on display. The El Monte Herald dated August 30, 1935 contained an advertisement from the El Monte Motor Company and Ford dealer located at 100 W. Main Street and had a telephone number of 105. On sale was a 1932 Chevrolet DeLuxe Coupe $355, a 1929 Buick Master Coupe $195 and a 1931 Chevrolet Roadster Rambler $275, all bargains for that day. In the 1960’s, the State of California and the Department of Motor Vehicles issued Horseless Carriage Id cards. The card on display in the museum was once issued to Curtis Hoyt, who was President of El Monte Motor Company until 1985. El Monte is known as the ‘End of the Trail’ and the terminus of several trails mostly initiated from Santa Fe, New Mexico ended here. The trails were known as the ‘Old Spanish Trail’ and the ‘Gila Southern Route’. Before email there was a different method of mail called ‘V-mail’, which World War II enlisted men used for sending mail back to their families. A replica of the first single ‘star’ bear flag declaring California to be a free and sovereign state

is on display in the museum with the original state flag located in the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles. Juan Bautista Alvarado raised the flag on November 6, 1836. Alvarado was joined by 100 other rebels in declaring California independent and he became President of the new state. On September 9, 1850, California was finally admitted to the United States as the 31st state of the Union. As a result of his actions in leading a revolt against Mexican rule nearly a decade before the ‘Bear Flag’ revolt, the name Alvarado is embedded throughout Southern California history. The El Monte Historical Museum is located on Tyler Avenue, next to El Monte High School and is open 5 day a week from 11- 4 PM.

program, Dirk Hagen (CEO of Timberwolf Productions and founder of the Zombie Blood Run), emphasized that “Our concept is we have no mud, just blood.” Participants in the event had a choice to either be a zombie or a runner. Those that chose to participate as zombies had the privilege of getting their zombie makeup done courtesy of students from Cinema Makeup School. CMS students showed off their amazing make-up skills by transforming regular folks into fearsome zombies. These zombies were then released onto the course and ready to do battle with runners. Whether you were a Zombie or a Runner, everyone who participated received a participation bag full of goodies, which included: a numbered event bib, an event survivor medallion, an energy drink courtesy of VAMP, a Collector Trading Card, an event poster & sticker, a Collector bookmark, and admittance to the Zombie After Party. Adjacent to the course were vendor booths offering products and information to attendees. Mid Valley Radio’s booth featured station information, flyers, stickers, and a t-shirt give-away. Other vendors at the event included the American Red Cross, St. Baldrick’s Foundation, VAMP energy drink, and several zombie-themed merchants. Mid Valley News was also represented, as Assistant Editor Devette Johnson was in attendance. The Zombie Blood Run turned out to be an interesting and fun event for all in attendance. For those who were less fortunate and unable to attend the inaugural Zombie Blood Run, never fear! When last spoken to, Zombie Blood Run founder Dirk Hagen mentioned a good possibility of another event being produced in the future.

FANVIEW By Joe Torosian “Will you help him change the world? Can you dig it? Yes, I can and I’ve been waiting such a long time.”---Chicago I’ve been at my current church for 13 years. The first Super Bowl party at my church was so long ago that the St. Louis Rams were actually playing in that Super Bowl...Of course the New England Patriots cheated, but that’s another column. I was at my church when 911 happened. For years we did Monday night football in the fellowship hall and then later in the homes of different families around the church. For birthday parties and going away parties, I slipped away with the men in my church to watch football in the other room while all the activities were going on. I’ve seen a lot...we’ve had discussions about college basketball, North Carolina, hockey, NASCAR (sucks what?)...baseball and football. But I’m always accused, and I guess rightly so, of being the sports guy. The one that loves to watch sports, the one who loves to talk sports, the one who always injects a sports illustration into a sermon. But the part that has bugged me about this, is that everyone else has always acted like they were above these things. “Oh no,” they say. “”I don’t really care, makes no difference to me.” Recently as I was sitting down at a board meeting I asked Don, who is 79, if he saw the Dodger game the night before. The one where Andre Ethier hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game and Yasiel Puig turned a single up the middle into a double and eventual winning run. “I was listening to it and then it got late and I had to get some things done,” he said. I said; “Oh, did you turn down the sound and listen to Vin Scully over the radio?” “No, I listened to it on the radio,” Don said. “I have Time Warner.” Which meant he didn’t have the Dodger game on KCAL because of the recent dispute. What I took from it was, Don was getting stuff done and turned on the radio to catch some of the game. No big deal. Then on Sunday I asked him if he had been following the Dodgers this week. “Oh yeah,” he said. Then he put his fist up and said; “I think this is their year!”

The Andrew Policky era got off to a great story on Friday night as the Arcadia Apaches defeated the Alhambra Moors 38-6 at Moor Field in a game that featured two new head coaches. For the Apaches it was Policky, late of Hoover, that saw his team pull away from the Moors by scoring 16 points in the last 48-seconds of the half. Also making his debut for Arcadia was Joey Harmon, who missed all of 2012 with an injury. Harmon was 16 of 23 for 196 yards and touchdown.

The Peterson Principal By Tim Peterson

Before Friday nights game with Los Altos Arroyo head coach Jim Singiser was worried about the physicality of the Conquerors. “Have you seen those guys? I think if we can make some plays on them but if it turns into a ground game and smash mouth football we might be in trouble,” Singiser said. And it was true the Los Altos front line was getting a lot of ink this summer. Guys like David Tolmachoff and Jake Loera were being heralded as tough customers to deal with. And they were exactly that. But Arroyo didn’t back down. The Knights made plays, Nathan Coto to Nico Lozano and Jose Valdivia, Randy Amezcua running the ball, but they also knocked heads with Los Altos. They fell a score short but they knocked heads. “Jim (Singiser) has some tough guys over there. Those guys matched us physically,” said Los Altos HC Dale Ziola. Singiser was pleased with the effort as well. “I thought we gave away too many possessions but we did play with them physically,” Singiser. All I was thinking when I was watching from the sidelines was if Arroyo can play with these guys on a physical level what happens when they play Rosemead? El Monte? Temple City? Skill guys have never really been a problem for Arroyo but if they have brute strength too? As far as Los Altos is concerned everything will be fine. Ziola summed it up with three words. “Hacegaba is a stud.” Singiser is always good

for a line or two during a game. Here is a classic from Friday night. He was urging a player to move right but the point seemingly wasn’t getting across. “Move right! Move right! Right!” Singiser screamed out towards the field. The player didn’t move and when he returned to the sidelines he heard it from Singiser. “What are you doing? I told you to move right! Do I have to put out some flares?” Sorry to see Rowland running back Avery Duffus go down with a knee injury. But for Ryan Jacobson it’s nice to have a running back waiting in the wings. Jackie Zhang stepped in and ran for over 268 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Nogales. The next play after the injury time out for Duffus, Zhang went 43 yards for the first score. Jake Payton makes more of a difference than we thought. He immediately became the feature back that Bonita needed and left a huge hole in the San Dimas running attack. Some people, including yours truly, thought the Saints wouldn’t miss a beat. But they certainly weren’t the same team – at least last Thursday night they weren’t. You realize just how much Brandon Martinez meant to El Monte when you see what happened to the Lions in the opener. Baldwin Park 47 El Monte 18. The Mark Keppel Aztecs! That’s my principle.

Baldwin Park Too Much for El Monte High School Baldwin Park

by George Hernandez

The Baldwin Park Braves built up a 34-0 lead in the first half and cruised to an easy 47-18 victory over the visiting El Monte Lions on Friday night in the season opener for both schools. Braves triggerman Michael Moran tossed three touchdown passes and rammed another in on the ground to lead his team. Baldwin Park scored on its first three turns with the ball to take 21-0 in the first quarter. The halftime score was

34-6. Moran’s final numbers were 19 of 29 for 304 yards. Helping out were running backs Christian Barazza and Hector Moran each scoring touchdowns on the ground. Wide receiver/defensive back Jayson Miller scored on a 75-yard pass from Moran and added an interception for good measure. Defensive back Julio Tinajero picked off two passes and returned on 33-yards for a touchdown. The Lions were paced by

wide receiver Roy Barrajas’s seven catches for 152 yards and touchdown. He also carried the ball eight times for 55 yards and a score. “Number seven (Barrajas) you’re going to hear about him for the next three years make a note of that,” said El Monte HC Joel Sanchez. Adam Cuevas was the starter at quarterback for El Monte. In his first start he was 16 of 33 for 278 and a pair of touchdowns. He was sacked five times.

and now offers associate degrees for transfer in 14 programs of study: administration of justice, business administration, communication studies, early childhood education, elementary education, English, history, kinesiology, mathematics, physics, political science, psychology, sociology, and theater arts. “Exceeding our target goal for implementing transfer degree programs is an outstanding accomplishment for Citrus College,” said college Superintendent/President Dr. Geraldine M. Perri. “The faculty and staff have worked tirelessly to develop these comprehensive programs of study that provide a viable pathway to college completion.” Through July 26, 2013, only five institutions, including Citrus College, have succeeded in reaching 100 percent of their target numbers of transfer degrees, while only eight colleges in the California Community College (CCC) system have reached 80 percent of their target numbers. While the CCC and CSU systems continue to work together to increase transfer opportunities, increasing the number of transfer degrees available to community college students is central to this effort. “Although the college has already exceeded 100 percent of its associate degree for transfer target, we have the option of developing and adding additional transfer degrees,” Dr. Perri explained. “As a ‘College of Completion,’ Citrus College is committed to providing opportunities for students to earn an associate degree, prepare for a career, or transfer to a four-year college or university. The college’s Curriculum Committee and the Academic Senate will continue to be very focused in developing additional new programs of study.”
