SGV Veteran Hospital Needed By Sean Telles In 2010, Los Angeles County had the highest number of military recruits in the United States, according to nationalpriorites.org. As this is a historic trend, Los Angeles Country has two veteran hospitals, one in Long Beach and another in West Los Angeles. However, San Gabriel Valley veterans have been left out in the cold. With some of the highest veteran enlistment percentages in the county, perhaps it is time to get our San Gabriel Valley heroes a hospital of their own. This past week I was invited as a guest to help a Korean War veteran friend attend his Long Beach veteran hospital appointment. Due to polio and a condition with his eyes, he has difficulties walking and seeing. I was happy to help out a friend, and pleasantly surprised with the overall experience, as the staff were generous and kind, and the volunteers, patients, and families were overwhelmingly positive. However, I did come to realize our local veterans are not receiving equal treatment. For example, my friend was offered free regular physical therapy – which I’m sure would improve the quality of life of my friend as well as those around him, through improved health leading to increased independence and happiness. However, due to the distance between his home in the San Gabriel Valley and his doctors in Long Beach, he had to politely decline the generous offer. I witnessed a similar situation
with a World War II veteran from Whittier whose caretaker daughter does not have the resources to invest multiple full days of care to drive her father to Long Beach. The more I thought about it, I realized the veterans and their families who live in and around Long Beach and West Los Angeles aren’t paying the same price as San Gabriel Valley families and are receiving superior service. They don’t pay the same transportation costs, such as gasoline; they can visit the hospitals in half or even a quarter of the day – whereas San Gabriel Valley veterans usually chalk out an entire day to see a doctor; and Long Beach and West Los Angeles veterans and their families can more easily accept regular treatment, such as physical therapy, while my SGV friend must turn it down. As Americans we are guaranteed equal treatment and this hospital situation seems entirely unfair. The equal protection clause of the 14th amendment was used to end segregation – as well as other more controversial decisions such as affirmative action. Perhaps it is time we justly demand equal treatment for our San Gabriel Valley veterans and get a Veterans Hospital built in South El Monte or a surrounding area. In addition to supporting our local heroes, it would bring jobs and peace of mind to military families, and most importantly, it would finally level the playing field and the price of admission for our veteran’s treatment.

To the excitement to many residents and businesses, a new Starbucks' drive-thru opened last Thursday on the corner of Santa Anita Ave. and Valley Blvd. In a traditional Ribbon Cutting Ceremony coordinated by the El Monte/ South El Monte Chamber of Commerce, many dignitaries were on hand to join in the celebration. Good times and caffiene was enjoyed by all. State Senator Ed Hernandez complimented the City of El Monte and the Chamber of Commerce on the revitalization in the El Monte business community. While Damien Arrula, Director of Economic Development stated, “restaurants always like to follow, not lead, so it will help recruit more restaurants and businesses for the downtown area and the redevelopment of the center”. Starbucks has more than 17,000 stores worldwide and abroad and this store will generate additional tax revenue and jobs for El Monte.

LEARN To Host Local "Lights On Afterschool!" Celebrations at Area Schools
By Anne Donofrio-Holter El Monte, CA -- In an effort to increase awareness of the benefits and effectiveness of afterschool programs in local schools, LEARN (Learning, Enrichment & Academic Resources Network) has selected Gidley Elementary, Columbia Elementary and Wilkerson Elementary Schools in El Monte, El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera, Pioneer High School in Whittier and Bassett High School in La Puente to showcase its afterschool programs during the 13th annual national "Lights On Afterschool!" celebration to be held October 18, 2012 LEARN provides quality afterschool services that focus on homework assistance, academic and extra-curricular enrichment and recreation for grades K through 12 within the communities of Whittier, Pico Rivera, El Monte and La Puente. The event emphasizes the need to save afterschool programs from budget cuts, thereby keeping lights on and doors open after the official end of the school day. "It’s important for the community to see the work that is being done in our afterschool programs. From kindergarten to high school, our youth are engaged in recreational, academic and enrichment activities." said LEARN CEO
The Walking Club is led by El Monte Parks and Recreation staff members who lead the groups in stretching, walking and cool down exercises.
Robert Arellanes. "Our recreation program helps supplement organized league play where many municipalities no longer have funding to maintain city leagues. Our academic assistance focuses on homework tutorials to bridge the gap for those who may not fully understand a lesson or an assignment. Finally, our enrichment activities range from theater arts to urban art, debate, film making, leadership training and even college access and high school equivalency classes." Those in attendance at each school site, including parents, will have an opportunity to meet LEARN and school staff working for and with the organization, learn about enrichment programs, clubs and afterschool activities students can participate in at
each school site as well as programs currently going on at neighboring districts. "Lights On Afterschool!" is a project of the Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit public awareness and advocacy organization supported by a group of public, private, and nonprofit entities working to ensure that all children have access to afterschool programs. Since launching in 2000, more than 7,500 communities and one million Americans have rallied together to keep kids safe, help working families, and inspire learning. For additional information and time scheduled for each school site, contact Steve Chang at (562) 945-0150 x104 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arcadia Rotarians Make Donation to Help Build Education Center By Anne Donofrio-Holter Arcadia, CA -- The Arcadia Rotary Club and the Arcadia Rotary Foundation each contributed $5,000 to the Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation in their quest to build an education center. “Since 2001, the Arcadia Museum Foundation has been providing innovative and exciting educational opportunities for children of all ages and backgrounds in the community. However, space constraints have limited them as to the types and number of programs they can offer,” said Arcadia Rotary Club past president Dr. Brad Miller, who presented the checks along with Bob Hoffman, president of the Arcadia Rotary Foundation. According to Floretta Lauber, Arcadia Museum Foundation president, the proposed 2,600-square-foot education center will house a large lecture hall, a gallery running the length of the building, modified kitchen facilities and
essential storage space. “This donation was made in memory of Bob Daggett, a longtime club member and the architect who designed the building for the education center, the last project he worked on before his passing,” said Miller. “Known for his wry sense of humor and generosity, Bob was loved by everyone.” “It is so important for the students of Arcadia to have a place where they can learn about the history of their city and we are proud to make this donation,” added Hoffman. “On behalf of the board of
directors and the children of Arcadia, I would like to express our appreciation to the Arcadia Rotary Club for their donation,” said Lauber. For more information about the Arcadia Museum Foundation, or to make a donation to the education center, go to http://arcadiamuseum-fdn. org/. The Arcadia Rotary Club meets every Friday from noon to 1:30 pm at the Embassy Suites Hotel located at 211 E Huntington Drive in Arcadia. For additional information, go to www.arcadiarotary.org.

Rosemead San Gabriel Temple City Rosemead San Gabriel Temple City Temple City
Jerry’s Journeys By Jerry Jambazian Temple City is a great place to live and raise a family. Temple City’s property values are among the highest in Los Angeles County due largely to the excellence of our outstanding, high achieving schools. All seven of Temple City’s schools have been designated as California Distinguished Schools. In my estimation there is a reason families are finding Temple City a place to invest their housing dollars. It is a safe place to live, it has a great form of city government with maintained infrastructure, parks and recreation. I don’t want to upset our city leaders, but people are not coming here because of our vibrant business district. We have well over 40 vacancies just on Las Tunas Drive. It is not the city’s fault. We have been in a downturn economy for four years. I have used my own customers as a bellwether of the economy. I have said all this to urge Temple City residents to vote YES for Measure S. I have lived in the Temple City Unified School District for 45 years, 3 years as a renter and 42 years as a homeowner. I have directly benefited from high property values at home and at my business. Our two daughters benefited from a world-class education in Temple City beginning in the 1980’s. Voting Yes on Measure S will protect high quality instruction in core subjects such as math, science, reading and writing. Yes on S will enable the district to make necessary repairs in ALL our Temple City schools. Yes on S will update technology in science/computer labs and school libraries to
enhance student learning and keeping test scores high. Yes on S will fund safe schools, safety equipment, fire alarms, smoke detectors, sprinklers, door safety locks, safety lighting and fencing. Yes on S will upgrade heating and cooling systems, repair roofs, deteriorating electrical systems and restrooms. Yes on S will remove hazardous materials such as asbestos/lead paint, replace outdated plumbing systems to code. The Temple City Unified School District is concerned about the health and safety of children during the school day. A major portion of the bond funds will be used to remove the obstacles to creating a better learning environment. The detractors have said that Temple City schools will continue to provide a good education even if the bond fails. I tend to agree only because of a dedicated staff of educators who are committed to providing a great learning experience. Good is not an option. Temple City students deserve the best! In 2000 the median home and condo value was $233,000. In 2011 the median value was $574,504. What kind of interest have you been getting lately on your investments? If you are lucky maybe about 1%. The value of your home has increased through the years. I maintain that your home took on added value partly because of Temple City’s outstanding school district. The average assessed value (not actual value) in Temple City is about $300,000 per house. This equates to about $176 per year in increased property tax for 25 years. I am not a math genius, but I see this as a good investment
considering my increased property values through the years. The argument has also been made to renters, “If you increase my landlord’s assessment, he/she will raise my rent.” Do you really think a landlord is going to raise your rent because your unit has increased $50 per year? Of the 88 cities in Los Angeles County, Temple City ranks third in increased value, only behind San Marino and Walnut. The API (Academic Performance Index) recently released the scores of 37 surrounding school districts. Temple City ranked fifth with a score of 901. The State’s target of 800 is considered a minimum standard. The detractors have argued, “What did they do with the 1998 bond of 24 million which we are still paying for?” Let me shed some light on some of the major improvements. The 1998 bond included: • Oak Avenue: Construction eleven classrooms, three science labs, and music classroom. • TCHS: Two story permanent addition to the 400/500 classroom wing, upgrade science labs and restrooms. • Cloverly: Completion of two story classrooms with elevator, installation of fire services. Emperor: Construction of two-story building with twelve classrooms and elevator. • La Rosa: Construction of two-story building providing fourteen classrooms with elevators, new Instructional Resource Center. • Longden: Construction of two-story building with fourteen classrooms with elevator, demolish former district office. • CLC: Construct singlestory building with two classrooms. School Districts across all California are suffering from decreased revenues from State and Federal sources. California is 16 billion dollars in the red and sees the school dis-
tricts as their personal piggy banks to continue wasteful projects. Earlier in the year legislators in Sacramento dissolved redevelopment agency funds. If the Governors measure does not pass he will institute more trigger cuts to education. Voting YES on Measure S will ensure that Sacramento will not be able to touch any of the funds. All expenditures will be subject to annual independent financial audits, no funds can be used for administrators’, salaries or pensions. Local control will be provided for all improvements at all schools. Lastly, an independent citizens’ oversight committee must be appointed to ensure that all funds are spent only as authorized. My, if only Sacramento could say the same thing! This has been a long process beginning in late 2011. The District held many meetings with site councils to determine the needs. The original project list was over 159 million dollars with a “If you could dream) approach. With careful consideration to the necessary needs the amount of $128.8 million was presented as a proposition to the voters of Temple City. The Board of Governors of the Temple City Unified School District adopted the proposed bond measure on July 18, 2012. I am voting YES for Measure S not because my property values have increased. I am voting YES because I am investing in our future. Education is a most important commodity. Please join me by voting YES on S and Paying it Forward for our future. See you soon…
Civil War Exhibit Raise Ghosts and Humanity By Sean Telles San Marino, Ca - Two new, temporary exhibits focusing on the Civil War have opened at the Huntington Library. One presentation focuses on the Huntington’s extensive, rarely seen, photograph collection and the other its historical documents. The artifacts alone are worthy of investigation, but the interesting layout of each collection adds dimension, history, and humanity to a subject often taught in black and white. When you enter the photography exhibit towards the back of the garden, the first thing that strikes you is the modern feel of the design. The larger rooms are broken into smaller sections by semi-transparent, ceiling-high screens that hold images of the civil war. The size of the panels offer new details into the old photos, yet the translucence of the material they are printed on give the observer the feeling of a ghost. Combine this feeling with a modern-day piece of music commissioned for the exhibit playing in the background, and you immediately realize this isn’t your everyday Civil War exhibit experience. In addition to the overall feel of the environment, the individual pieces are stunning. War photography was at its infancy during this time period and the expense of the process meant only the extremely wealthy were able to collect and view what is now on display - even newspapers, due to technological gaps, could only print woodcut versions of these photographs. One item not to be missed is what is sometimes called Lincoln’s “death warrant,” which is a hand-signed note excusing the President’s regular body guard from Cont. Page 11

By Joe Castillo Haunting Tails ….. It’s October and time for stories of ghosts and spirits in places we pass by everyday right here in the San Gabriel Valley. The Los Angeles County Arboretum is home to a number of ghostly visions which perhaps you may have seen. Going back to the late 20’s, the Arboretum was used for a number of movies. The Queen Anne Cottage, an 1885 Victorian built by E.J. Elias ‘Lucky’ Baldwin was the centerpiece of a number of sightings. In the days when everyone was trying to get into movies, the demand for Native American actors was high but the lack of qualified actors kept most roles unfilled. A young African-American actor saw an opportunity to get into the acting field by imitating a Native American chief. The fraudulent actor learned the ways of the Native Americans, learned their language and culture and even changed his name to Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance. The Chief became so good in his role that soon he was used
as a ‘technical consultant’ for Western movies and the movie industry. His involvement with a number of movies at the Arboretum allowed him to finagle his way to stay in the Queen Anne Cottage. The Chief continued to fool everyone for over a year until a reporter found out about his secret. Not wanting to be exposed as a fraud, the Chief decided to take matters into his own hands and shot himself in the Parlor of the Queen Anne Cottage. Within a short period of time, ghostly images of the Chief were seen in the parlor, walking around practicing his movie lines. When the TV show, Fantasy Island, was filmed at the Arboretum, actors and stage crews members told of seeing the ghost of Chief Long Lance in the cottage. Ghost hunters have also sensed ghosts of the Gabrielenos around Baldwin Lake and ‘Lucky ‘Baldwin himself in the Hugo Reid Adobe…. The San Gabriel Mission is home to a number of ghostly images of floating candles. In the days when
the Mission was being built, a number of priests, craftsman, teachers and travelers died while either working or staying as a guest in the Mission. Numerous Gabrielenos were either killed or fatally abused while working at the Mission. As is a Catholic tradition, a candle is lit when a baptized Catholic dies. The image of floating candles has been seen moving from the altar down the aisle at a height of 4 feet and out to the garden area. Around the Mission, numerous sightings have appeared in houses and residences of a Gabrieleno man. The image lasts a few seconds and then disappears, waiting for a reason to re-appear again…. The Aztec Hotel on Foothill Boulevard in Monrovia was home to a suicide of a young lady named Jerry Lynn, who was either a prostitute or resident of the Hotel. That same night Prohibition was repealed and ghost hunters suggest that Lynn’s ghost was caught in the hotel between the celebrations. She has been seen wearing the same clothes as when she committed suicide… Whether at the Mission, the Arboretum or the Aztec Hotel, the San Gabriel Valley is haunted by its own unique collection of ghosts…

By: Dr. Robert Lewis A common fruit, mildly sweet with a juicy crunch. Starts with an “a” and ends with an “e.” Can you guess what fruit it is? If you guessed an apple, you are correct. Not only are apples delicious, they are also a convenient, nutritious snack. One small apple is a good source of vitamin C and fiber. (Good sources provide 10-19% Daily Value.) As you may already know, vitamin C helps our bodies heal cuts and wounds and helps lower the risk of infection. Vitamin C also helps build the tissue that holds muscles and bones together. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant that can help lower the risk of some types of cancers. Plants count on fiber for their shape. Fiber gives celery its stalk. Fiber gives spinach the strong stems that hold its leaves. Fiber is found only in plant foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds. Fiber comes in two forms: insoluble and soluble. Insoluble fiber does not break down and helps move food through our bodies. Soluble fiber helps pull cholesterol out of our bodies, and also helps control blood sugar levels. Antioxidants can be found in the skins of the apple. So eat the whole apple – skin and all – to get the most nutrients. Some great ways to enjoy apples are:
• In a salad -- add sliced apples, dried fruit and walnuts. • As a dip -- mix peanut butter with vanilla yogurt, then dip with sliced apples. • For a tasty breakfast -- add cut up apples, chopped nuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon to your oatmeal. Enjoy!

Lions Light up Rosemead FANVIEW
By Joe Torosian “Every time you win, you are reborn.” --- George Allen If Temple City HC Mike McFarland pulls off the win against San Marino this week, he should be named Grand Marshall of the Camellia Parade. Has anyone seen a Lakers game yet? Saying Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is struggling on the field, is like saying George Clooney struggles to get dates with swimsuit models. Note to Fred Roggin: When you put Brandon Martinez on your show, give him more time! The best quarterback in the schools 111 years deserved better. So does Brian Tabatabai start getting consideration for OC of the year? The most interesting thing I heard on Friday night after South El Monte scored its first touchdown was that Gabrielino was trailing in a game for the first time all season. I’m really starting to dig fantasy football. Really starting to miss hockey... honestly, not really. Have to love the players who keep strapping on the helmets and pads for Alhambra... Next Add TC: For those of you thinking a Temple City upset of San Marino this week is out of the question, check this out; Titan opponents are 14-36 on the season. I have never been so bored by Major League Baseball... Question: Would you rather have your team be pathetic, so when they lose you don’t get too angry about it. Or...would you rather have your team be mediocre and be ticked off every time they lose? I’m not making predictions, but if Levi Wells can stay healthy and get more comfortable South El Monte is going to be a real tough out over the next few weeks. Chris Long and staff deserve loud applause for getting Arcadia to this point in the season. The Apaches were written off after the opening the season with a loss to Rio Hondo Prep...yeah, remember that. A good football season is the kind of season that sees the Dallas Cowboys struggle...Always a pleasure. Speaking of the Lakers, I don’t know what it feels like to be Antawn Jamison. He’s been around 14 seasons averaging just a tick under 20 points and eight rebounds a game and people hardly know he’s still in the league. Can you imagine if Jamison had spent the last 14 years with either the Lakers or the Boston Celtics? Better still, can you imagine what you would do with the 15-million he’s going to make this season? Now that’s the kind of anonymity I can handle.

Arroyo Beats The View, 14-3 By Carson E. Powers El Monte, CA - Arroyo climbed back into the Mission Valley League on Friday night with a 14-3 victory over Mt View at B.L. Bergstrom. The win extends the Knights winning streak over the Vikings to 31 consecutive, but it didn’t come with standard Arroyo lightening strikes and a running clock in the fourth quarter. This one was a grinder. After a scoreless first quarter, and only 3:45 to play in the second, Peter Aholoka scored on a 4-yard run up the middle to give Arroyo a 7-0 lead. Mt.

by Martinez including a 60 yarder to Adolfo Sanchez and tosses of 33 to Barrajas and 26 to Morales. It looked like the Lions would run away and hide in the second half but Rosemead quickly got back into it with two scores to open the third quarter. Everado Camacho connected with Steven San Miguel for a 34 yard score. The Lions fumbled a snap on the ensuing possession and Rosemead immediately cashed in again. From the El Monte 27, the Panthers needed just six plays to get in the endzone with Camacho capping it with a five ayrd run. Suddenly Rosemead had made it a one possession game at 36-28. But the Lions kicked it right back into high gear. Martinez hit Barajas for a 48 yard pass down to the 11 yard line. From there Martinez fired a ten yard bullet to Sanchez and then the senior quarterback ran in the to point conversion and the advantage was back to 16. Michael Suhagen caught a one yard toss from Camacho with just seven seconds remaining in the third quarter to give Rosemead 20 points in the third and cut the lead to 44-34. But Martinez’ sixth TD pass of the night - this one for 23 yards to Morales and an interception by Marco Reyes of Camacho late in the fourth iced it for the Lions.
straight touchdowns to grab the lead. Camacho hooked up with San Miguel for a 38 yard gain and he found him again on the next play for a ten yard score to get the Mead in the board. El Monte was stopped on fourth down and Rosemead took over at its own 45 on the next possession. Camacho went to San Miguel again this time hitting him with a 34 yard strike to start the second quarter. And suddenly the Panthers were up 14-12. “They took a 14-12 lead. That’s not something we worry about especially in the first or second quarter,” said El Monte Coach Joel Sanchez. And worry they didn’t as the Lions went on a 24-0 run to close out the first half. Twice Martinez made big pass plays for touchdowns - 33 yards to Barrajas and 26 to Morales and El Monte converted on all three two point conversions. 14-12 Rosemead turned into 36-14 Lions at the half. It looked like it was over already early before Rosemead came out with the two quick scores to open the third. The Panthers made it interesting for awhile but it wasn’t enough. “We played hard to the last whistle. That’s what we do and we got a victory and now we move Cont. Page 8 forward,”
By Matt Schuler South Pasadena, CA - Temple City was trailing nearly the entire game before pulling off a miraculous comeback, doing all the right things to hang around and pull off the 42-35 come-from-behind victory against host South Pasadena in overtime Friday Night. Anthony Valencia rolled out right and found Oscar Estrada open in the end zone, who barely managed to secure the catch and touchdown in the first possession of overtime. On the flip side South Pas quarterback David Madrid watched his fourth down pass go off the hands of his receiver followed by the sidelines pouring out onto the field. The win makes it four-consecutive for Temple City, who
trailed 21-7 late in the first and 28-14 with 8:22 in the second before putting together three consecutive scoring drives and 21 points when they needed it most. TC soon found itselves ahead 35-28 with 11:16 to play when Nic Starling darted in the endzone for the teams first lead of the night. Starling finished with the night with two touchdowns and Austin Esparza also chipped in with another. South Pasadena’s Nathan Lee opened the game with a 99-yard kick off return to the house and the Tigers looked good early with the arm of David Madrid. Lee finished with three total touch downs for South Pas, but it wasn’t enough. The Rams Cont. Page 9

South Delivers Gabrielino First Loss, 22-9
By Joe Torosian South El Monte, CA - South El Monte made a pair of first quarter touchdowns stand up, and scored a late one for effect, in its 22-9 victory over Gabrielino on Friday night in Mission Valley League play. Two things happened early. First quarterback Levi Wells hit Jordan Vargas with a short pass that Vargas turned into a 13-yard touchdown as he bulled into the endzone. Agustin Pinto drilled the extra point and it was 7-0 Southmen The other thing that happened on that play? It was the first time in six games, the then 6-0 Gabrielino Eagles, had trailed in a game. It didn’t get better a little over a minute later when Pablo Ocegueda returned a punt 60-yards to paydirt and Erick Zelaya added the two point conversion to make it 15-0. Unable to mount a running game, Gabrielino went to the pass. The deep pass and failed to advance the ball. All five of its first half possessions ended with punts, and earned just one first down not from a referee’s flag. In the second half South fumbled on its first play from scrimmage and Gabrielino was able to turn it into a 30-yard field goal by Eddie Garcia. Still struggling offensively

GHS was able to put pressure on South. The home team’s first four possessions of the second half all ended in punts. With 7:07 top play the deep ball finally paid off for Gabrielino. Quarterback Elijah Peters rolled right, pumped faked down field to Jeremy Franco and then threw back across the field to Cameryn Matthews for a 46-yard touchdown. The extra-point was botched on the hold, and the score was 15-9 South. The defenses held the offenses each to a three and out on the next possessions, but South’s fifth possession of the second half proved to be the back breaker. Another excellent punt return by Ocegueda put his team in business at their own 47 with 3:48 to play. An offside penalty advanced it to the Gabrielino 48. Eric Garcia went five more yards for the first down. Two plays later Wells hit Garcia with 5-yard pass that set up a third down and five at the Gabrielino 38. Dropping back to pass, with great protection, Wells waited for Javier Machuca to cross to the center of the field before connecting with him. Machuca, the South El Monte word for “lightening”, turned up field and covered 19 yards before being stopped. Garcia carried the ball for Cont. Page 9

Sanchez said. ”I tell people all the time unless you come and see us you think it’s just the Brandon Martinez show. Of course he’s great, we know that. But so is Abel (Barrajas), so is Josh Morales, Adolfo Sanchez and Josh Wu. It’s a group of guys, about four or five guys that are good. It’s not just one or two. And another thing is our line. I haven’t heard one thing about our line all year and our line is playing thier butts off every game. They leave it all the field and do everything we ask them to do.” Martinez, behind that line, threw for 381 yards and six scores on 21 completions. Everybody got into the act as Martinez threw to five different receivers. Barrajas had 98 yards receiving, Sanchez 88, wu 84 and Morales 75. Martinez added 84 yards on the grond and Angel Gonzalez contributed 52 rushing yards. San Miguel did the most damage for Rosemead with 11 catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns. Alec Zavala ran for 117 yards on 15 carries. “Everybody talks about their offense but their defense made a couple of big stops too and you have to take your hats off to them,” said Rosemead Coach Marc Paramo.
The Peterson Principle By Tim Peterson Associate Editor After you sift through all the debris about broken plays, cheap shots, trash talking and defenses, one thing is certain. El Monte is the best team in the league in 2012. Yes, it seems like that is stating the obvious and it might be. But I've still heard whispers about Gabrielino pulling something or read posts about South shutting the Lions down. Sorry, I just don't see it. Brandon Martinez and company are simply too much. And when I say company it's some pretty exclusive company. If Martinez is best actor then there are plenty of best supporting actors. There's Abel Barrajas, Josh Morales, Josh Wu, and Adolfo Sanchez. All these guys are capable of making an instant impact. The Lions played without their best running back in Friday night's 50 point performance in Rosemead as Bryan Luevano sat out with an ankle injury and Angel Gonzalez stepped in and filled the void. Make no mistake, the Lions will win the MVL. Don't tell that to Coach Joel Sanchez however who is keeping his team grounded. “We haven't done anything yet. We still have three games left. We got the win now let's get out of here,” he told his team after the game. Worried about the defense? Well, if they're scoring 40 to 50 points a game it doesn't matter does it? Yes, the Lions will be just fine. That being said I still don't understand all the hoopla surrounding the “broken play” comment attributed to Rosemead HC Marc Paramo. I swear I've read the
quote at least 10 times and I don't see anything negative or derogatory being directed towards the El Monte offense. Great players make things happen out of broken plays don't they? John Elway and Joe Montana made a living out of broken plays. Of all the comments written on the El Monte- Rosemead game story – over 50 so far including the ones we had to delete- the one written by JJimenez makes the most sense about Paramo's comment. “Paramo's quote was taken out of context. He said what he said but he didn't say it as a put down. He said it to the reporter as a compliment of B Mart's ability to make a broken play into something big such as his scrambles for touchdowns and the ability to throw the long ball. When the reporter got a hold of it he left a few crucial words out of the original quote and posted it as fact,” he wrote. Yeah that sounds about right to me. Paramo was nothing but complimentary after the game in regards to the El Monte offense. But you, know whatever it takes to get fired up I guess. Personally I think El Monte scores 50 with or without the comment. Montebello-BG is BIG “That was a huge win or us. That's San Gabriel. They always have a great offense and they were in the CIF Finals last year.” said Montebello DC Brian Zavala about the Oilers 48-41 win over the Matadors Friday night. “We jumped out to a big lead and then let it get away but we were happy to get the win in overtime. I'm running the defense so you can blame me for all of those points,” he said. That's my principle.
Area Football Round Ups Week Seven
Cantwell-Sacred Heart 8, Bosco Tech 7 A 25-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Timothy Walsh to Joseph Henriquez and a two-point conversion run by Walsh lifted the Cardinals (1-6, 1-2) to their first win of the year, knocking off the Tigers (1-6, 1-2) Friday night at CantwellSacred Heart. The Tigers had taken a 7-0 lead in the first quarter when Tigers quarterback Brady Martinez scored from a yard out. Running back David Fuentez led the Tigers on the ground with 129 yards on 24 carries. Alhambra 53, Keppel 20 The Jerry DeSantis era at Alhambra got off to a good start as the Moors (3-4, 1-1) continued the Aztecs’ (0-7, 0-2) winless streak Friday night at Keppel High’s Aztec Stadium. The Moors took a 47-0 lead before the Aztecs got on the board with a 12-yard run with 39 seconds left in the half. Ezra Broadus and Sebastian Espinoza each scored twice in the first quarter as the Moors built a 35-0 lead after the first. Quarterback Armando Amaya completed only three of six passes in the game but all three were touchdown throws in the first quarter, two to Espinoza and one to Joseph Nieto.

Prediction: Rosemead 21 Gabrielino 7 Arroyo (4-3) at South El Monte (3-4) Common sense says go with Arroyo, but the Eagles are playing more inspired ball at the moment. South HC Ibis Aguilar has to find a way to keep the Knights pass rush away from Levi Wells.

Blair (0-7) at Muir H.S. This will sound awful, but for the good of area football the Wildcats need to drop 100 on the Vikings. The attention will embarrass those who put this team on the field in 2012. The players should have never been exposed to this. Prediction: Monrovia 65 Blair 0 Valle Vista League Baldwin Park (0-8) at Northview (5-2) The Braves are the best 0-8 team around...sounds funny but true.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by LUCIANO COBIAN, A MARRIED MAN, AS HIS SOLE AND SEPARATE PROPERTY, dated 04/08/2005 and recorded 4/26/2005, as Instrument No. 05 0968393, in Book , Page , of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, will sell on 11/08/2012 at 9:00AM, Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles-Norwalk, 13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk, CA 90650, Vineyard Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 3219 HIDDEN LANE, EL MONTE, CA, 91733. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $368,952.41. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ‘’AS IS’’ condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. If required by the provisions of section 2923.5 of the California Civil Code, the declaration from the mortgagee, beneficiary or authorized agent is attached to the Notice of Trustee’s Sale duly recorded with the appropriate County Recorder’s Office. 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 a 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 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 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 12-0059515. 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.

ARIES Your chores are all-important right now. That could mean blowing off important projects and people, but you'll need to do that anyway if you get buried. TAURUS Love and romance are in store for you now, so make sure you're ready for anything -- or anyone, if you're single! GEMINI Be clear with people now -Others are trying to figure out how you really feel, but they are likely to get it wrong without some input from you. CANCER The little details of your life are growing dramatically, but they are also making your life more interesting. LEO You are feeling unexpectedly low-key this week, so just take it easy and let others take the lead. VIRGO People may tease you about your obsession with organization, but with weeks like this week, it really pays off! LIBRA Avoid the temptation to growl at those who get in your way this week -- forgive first. You're better off without grudges. SCORPIO Your friends are in need, but they aren't being pesky about it. Which means it's up to you to check them out and figure out what you can do for them. SAGITTARIUS Your headlong rush into the week's activities can cause problems down the line -- Rushing actually moves you backward this week! CAPRICORN Information is easier to come by this week -- You know just whom to call or which website has the data required for any question.

that night at Ford’s Theater. The second temporary display of the Huntington Civil War collection is on display in a smaller room closer to the entrance. What it loses in space, it makes up for in content. A person could spend hours reading the over a hundred letters, posters, and other late 19th century items, which by design, take a modernday viewer into an America divided beyond anything it has ever known. Starting with the passionate build-up to the war, to the complicated battles themselves – complete with plain clothes guerrilla warriors, to the final outcome for the battle of how the 13th amendment should be worded (citizenship or not for all African Americans), this exhibition will teach everyone something through first-hand, extremely rare, artifacts. There is one stunning visual present in both exhibits. As the majority of casualties
in the war were left on the battlefield, it became the job of mostly Afro-Americans after the war to bury skeletal remains. In a war that began in order to maintain the Union and morphed into a fight for freedom, this photograph speaks to the horrors of one of the most tragic times in our history that left no one and everyone free from horrible pain. The Civil War collection at the Huntington Library is one of the largest and best in the world. Now, it’s your pleasure to enjoy this wealth in a way few ever will. As these are temporary exhibits and you’ll probably want to go at least twice, get there quickly. Curator of Photography, Jennifer Watts and Curator of American Historical Manuscripts, Olga Tsapina both deserve acclaim and thanks for designing realms to see the past in unique and helpful ways.
Daigo Saito Wins Formula Drift Championship
By Andrew Paul Bettridge Irwindale, CA - Just this past weekend here at Irwindale Speedway right of the 605 freeway at Live Oak Formula Drift hit with a sell out crowd as seas of fans as far as the eye could see. With over 6 crashes all in the same turn during main competition, the final crash came in the final battle of the season as Jason Pawlak hit the wall. Which gave Daigo Saito the automatic win for the round and his points came to total just enough to win the championship in his rookie season here in the US series. Stay tuned for coverage of round 1 in the Streets of Long Beach in April and any other Formula Drift breaking news between the seasons.
