"HEROES IN THE SHADOWS" San Gabriel Valley Stand Down this November, 2012 South El Monte, CA – As part of a continuing mission to serve the needs of homeless Veterans in the San Gabriel Valley, San Gabriel Valley Veterans Employment Committee and Vet Hunters Project have once again assembled a coalition of community organizations, private industry and federal, state and local government entities to host the 2nd Annual “Heroes in the Shadows” Stand Down for homeless Veterans. The event scheduled is for the weekend of November 2 through 4, 2012 on the grounds of Whittier Narrow Park in the City of South El Monte across the street from the Army Reserve Center. Admission will be open to pre-registration and walk-up attendees from 8:00am – 10:00am each morning of the event. During the event, attendees will be able to access basic

their Family members, were served in the same area, Whittier Narrows Park. This year we estimate approximately 400-600 Veterans and their dependants to take part over the three day event. Think about this, if housing the homeless is expensive, consider the cost of not housing them. The average chronically homeless person costs taxpayers $40,000 — the price of jail, mental institutions, emergency rooms. And after that $40,000 is spent, they are no closer to having a home. In times of war, a Stand Down means a break from the battles. For some Veterans who fought those battles and came home to fight other conflicts in their private lives, struggles that left them lost and homeless, a Stand Down can be a chance to embark on the road back to their lives. For homeless Veterans, a

50 Thousand Pumpkins By Sean Telles Pomona, Ca – Each year agricultural college, Cal Poly Pomona migrates the 50,000 pumpkins students grow to one spot to create one of the most spectacular fall views in the San Gabriel Valley. The Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival, now in its 20th year, is one of the most popular family friendly Halloween events in Los Angeles. Beyond pumpkins being

With over 25 vendors, events included live insects, insect education, insect jewelry, insect candy, and the not to be missed madagascar hissing cockroach races.

Activating South El Monte's Vacant Lots South El Monte-Santa Anita Avenue, near Merced By South El Monte Art Posse South El Monte, CA -- If you look closely, over or through the green tarps on the chain link fence, you’ll find a large field filled with patches of dirt, several dead bushes, a critter or two, and three-foot weeds growing freely. Before its current state of abandon the lot on Santa Anita Ave near Merced, housed a large nursery, providing residents

with a place to purchase a range of plants and trees. To the dismay of the some residents (and the approval of others), the nursery was replaced by a “rendering,” which promised a future shopping center. The shopping center never arrived, the rendering was eventually replaced by a “for lease sign.” Years later, it remains. On October 13th at 9am, Jennifer Renteria, a recent graduate of USC’s School of Architecture and daughter of Starlite Swap Meet vendors, will provide South El Monte Residents with her own vision for this abandoned lot. Her project, the “Uncultivated Park,” is part of South El Monte Arts Posse’s on-going vacant lot art series titled Activate Vacant. SEMAP is a collective of artists, writers, urban planners, educators, scholars, and youth interested in engaging directly with the South El Monte and El Monte community through the arts by rethinking our use of space and transforming how we inhabit it. For Activate Vacant, the collective invited artists to create art installations in abandoned, un-used, and, often, fenced-in lots in El Monte and South El Monte. Below is a brief interview with Renteria about her work.

How does your project for Activate Vacant relate to your previous work? At the core of all my projects – from my work on street vending to my work on urban nature – is an ongoing investigation of how people interpret and shape place, how time influences the way people interact with place, and how place and time shape

people. More so, all of these explorations are hyper aware of change, and the blurred line that marks where culture and nature end and begin. Be it in a dense, urban setting or in a more remote, “wild” condition – these questions always remain relevant. Can you tell us about “The

Uncultivated Park”? In addition to being an exploration of the blurred line between nature and culture, Cont. Page 4

Metro and Local Elected Officials Dedicate new State-of-the-Art El Monte Bus Station El Monte, CA -- On Wednesday, October 10, 2012 Metro will join local elected officials to dedicate the new stateof-the-art El Monte Station designed to increase daily bus passenger capacity by 82 percent from 22,000 daily riders to 40,000 daily riders.

The $60 million project is part of Metro’s ExpressLanes program and will provide more travel opportunities by improving bus connections and adding more bus service along the ExpressLanes. It was built as part of a $210 million federal grant. The ceremoney will take place at 11:00 AM at the El

Monte station located at 3449 Santa Anita Avenue in El Monte.Those in attendance will include LA County Supervisor Gloria Molina, Assemblyman Mike Eng, and El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero.

“The Uncultivated Park” reflects a long held interest in natural history, especially that of urban environments. This is when the questions “What is here? What was here? Why is it no longer here? What should be kept? and What can and should be here?” become especially relevant. Often, my initial response to a new project site is to want to deeply investigate its physical and geographic past, followed by a desire to incorporate this past into a site’s reimagining – an approach that is, more often than not, typical of landscape architects. Thus, when I learned of the Activate Vacant project and explored the sites, I responded by looking into the site’s natural history. Ultimately, what is imaged are flora and fauna that are endemic to the region or are invasive flora of similar climates that have enhanced local fauna’s habitat. Of course, all of these species may not have existed in such close proximity to each other, as imaged and, too, the body of water might require a bit of imagination, but these elements are certainly true to South El Monte’s natural history. It never fails that I am blown away when I think about an urban site’s natural history – sometimes, it feels like an out of body experience when I think about how an environment has changed, how our collective human efforts have and can change the physical expression of a place. . My hope is that people who see the final piece alongside the actual site and reflect on the fact that such an experience once thrived right where they stand will also feel that otherworldly sensation as well as be reminded that we are neither the beginning nor the end.

CHALK TALK EVERY STUDENT, EVERY MINUTE, EVERY DAY

Mountain View High Teacher Attends Summer Seminar in New York City By Anne Donofrio-Holter Mountain View High School teacher Chris Lewis was one of 25 teachers awarded a spot in the "Recipe for America” month-long summer seminar sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Held in New York City, the seminar focused on identity development and immigration at the turn-of-the-century and emphasized identity development through food culture. According to the New York Public Library, “the role that New York City has played in the story of United States immigration makes it the ideal setting for an Institute covering this content. In the crowded streets of 19th century and early 20th century New York City, diverse cultural groups worked together and often lived in the same tenements. They shopped from the same pushcarts and stores. Recipes and foods from respective mother countries eventually intertwined and melded to craft new foodways and eating traditions.” “Not only did this seminar influence my teaching in the social science department but it also helped support my current areas of research including identity development and archival work,” said Lewis. “Each day, we worked with historians, educators, librarians and scholars from

all over the world focusing on issues of identity, immigration and assimilation through the lens of food culture. The New York Public Library has a collection of family cookbooks, restaurant menus and city maps that help document the shifting and diverse communities of New York City at the turn of the century.” Currently a doctoral student at Chapman University pursuing a PhD in education with an emphasis on culture and curricular studies, Lewis “was excited to work with the other teachers in developing new and exciting ways to approach history education through the use of archival materials and food.”

Adult School Training a Better Choice in Today’s Economy By Anne Donofrio-Holter With so many schools to choose from for career and vocational training, what makes the El Monte-Rosemead Adult School a better option than a private for-profit vocational school? According to Assistant Principal Sara Shapiro, there are many reasons to consider. “Adult schools are far less expensive than private forprofit vocational schools and also offer adjunct services such as school counseling, basic education classes, high school diploma or GED to help students who do not pos-

sess a high school diploma or lack basic skills,” said Shapiro. “Private vocational schools will sometimes accept students who qualify for financial aid, but may not possess the skills needed to successfully complete the program.” Students could end up with costly loans at private vocational schools whether or not they finish their training. Then there’s the issue of accreditation. “The majority of adult schools, including the El Monte-Rosemead Adult School, are accredited institu-

EMUHSD Schools Receive Silver Medals from U. S. News and World Report By Anne Donofrio-Holter U. S. News and World Report, in its issue focusing on America's best high schools, has awarded silver proficiency medals to South El Monte, Arroyo, El Monte and Rosemead High Schools. Nearly 22,000 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on state proficiency standards, how well they prepare students for college and other factors. The research was based on key principles that a great high school must serve all its students well, not just those students bound for college, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show that the school is successfully educating its

student body across a range of performance indicators. “South El Monte High School is very proud of this accomplishment,” said principal Angie Gonzales. “We are working hard to meet the needs of all our students.” According to Gonzales, student numbers in meeting the A-G college entrance requirements and taking advanced placement classes have increased. El Monte Union High School District superintendent Nick Salerno also expressed his pride on the recognition of four district schools by U.S. News and World Report. "This award would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our staff and students," he said.

tions following California teaching and content standards. Some private vocational schools have not been accredited and their certificates are not recognized by higher learning institutions,” said Shapiro. “Our teachers are fully credentialed to teach in their field.” Private schools are not required to hire credentialed teachers. “In addition, since most adult schools are already located in the student’s own neighborhood, attendance there makes it easier on the wallet given the high cost of gasoline,” added Shapiro. Unfortunately, with recently reduced or eliminated funding, many adult schools may not be able to offer a sufficient number of vocational classes to meet students’ needs. “In some cases, it could take longer for students to get and complete their classes,” said Shapiro. For additional information on courses offered, registration, fees and class locations, go to www.emras.edu.

Rosemead Happenings …. If you want to know what’s happening in your city all you have to do is attend a city council meeting. The Rosemead City Council meeting on September 25 provided a lot of insightful information on the city and its operations. The meeting was called to order at 7PM by Mayor Sandra Armenta. Council Members Polly Low, William Alarcon, Margaret Clark and Steven Ly were all in attendance. The meeting started with a presentation to the Lady Hawks softball team who participated in the Triple Crown World Series in Nevada and the USSSA National in West Covina. A proclamation for National Voter Registration Day was also read. Neither representative was present but the city recognition was still honorably presented. The city also recognized Savannah Memorial Cemetery for their recent California Historical site designation. A proclamation was read by Mayor Armenta and yours truly representing Savannah as President of the association was on hand to receive the proclamation. The customary pictures were taken with the entire council and the honored cemetery representative…. The adult softball and basketball programs have always been a very popular recreation program in Rosemead. As the budget for these programs kept getting bigger, the city decided to contract out the management of the programs. Beginning in the fall season, the city council voted to approve Southland

Sport Association to manage the adult basketball program and Major League Softball to manage the adult softball program. The city will no longer use their own staff to run the adult leagues and the participation fees will remain the same. In addition, the contracted organizations will pay the city part of their revenues collected from the sport programs. It looks like a win-win opportunity for the city and its local residents…. Stray cats were another item on the city council agenda. It seems that stray cats cost the city $120 to $140 to be processed through the county. If a local resident turns in a stray cat to the city, the city will then turn around and send the cat to county animal services in Baldwin Park. The county will then charge back the city the $120 plus dollars for the stray cat. The City Council voted 4-1 to charge residents $10 for any stray cat which is turned in. Councilmember Margaret Clark was the only disapproving vote and really put the issue in perspective when she questioned the need to charge residents an amount which wasn’t even a significant percentage of what the county charges back to the city. I’ve been to a number of city council meetings and most fees are approved unanimously. It was very refreshing to see Councilmember Clarke vote against a fee which is nothing more than an annoying charge which does nothing to build goodwill between the city and its residents....

As the saying goes, “It’s better to give than to receive.” Temple City residents are invited to participate in two holiday donation drives this holiday season—SockO-Rama and Santa’s Paws & Claws—with donations accepted through Dec. 17 at City Hall, 9701 Las Tunas Dr. and Live Oak Park Community Center, 10144 Bogue St. Sock-O-Rama will help the less fortunate with toiletries and basic clothing items. Requested items in need include basic white t-shirts for men; new white socks for men, women and children; and packaged toothbrushes and toothpaste. All donations will be distributed to the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System and Los Angeles Ambulatory Care Center which assist veterans; and the Foothill Unity Center and New Beginnings Family Church that provide support services for homeless individuals and low-income families. Santa’s Paws & Claws helps our four-legged friends stay clean and fed at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. Items such as dry dog and cat food, toys, clean linens and towels are welcome.

La Fiesta Grande For The Lions! By Joe Torosian El Monte, CA - “You want me to bake them a cake?” Said Arroyo HC Jim Singiser when asked by a local reporter to describe his thoughts of El Monte after its 38-21 victory Friday night. Truth is he probably should

have baked them a cake and the rest of us should have attended the party to see the Lions blow the candles out on the Knights 21-game winning streak. Brandon Martinez threw six touchdown passes, four in the first half, three to Abel Barajas, for 375 yards on 27 of 39 passing. “Brandon is Brandon,” said El Monte HC Joel Sanchez. “I don’t need to sit here and tell you how great he is. But he’s got Abel, Josh, Adolfo and we’ve got Bryan Luevano, a guy who runs hard for our team and doesn’t get the credit he deserves.” Across the field Arroyo’s most experienced player was Peter Aholoka. The senior running back rushed for a 161 yards on 20 carries and a touhdown, and was all the Knights could answer the El Monte onslaught with. It wasn’t close to being enough. On their opening drive the Lions covered 81-yards over the course of five minutes, playing typical Lion football. They converted a fourth down and eight from their own 45 with a 27-yard pass from Martinez to Josh Morales. A few players later a first and goal at the Arroyo four turned into fourth down from three.

Martinez found Abel Barajas for the game’s first score in the corner of the end zone. The two-point attempt failed. The Knights had opened the game with a drive that used Aholoka and reached the EM 24 before ending with Aaron Tang taking a tipped ball out

of the air for an interception. On the possession following the El Monte score, they responded with one of their own. Eight plays, eight runs, going eighty-yards before quarterback Natha Coto

started passing the ball and Lions OC Brian Tabatabai essentially said; “Let it rain…” The cloud burst arrive with 7:30 to play in the second quarter as Barajas caught a 52-yard touchdown pass from Martinez to give EM back the lead. Luevano added the deuce and it was 14-7. (…And Memo Silva along with the other who experienced the 2011 loss rejoiced.) With 4:48, and Arroyo still lacking a center fielder, Martinez went 19-yards to Adolfo Sanchez to make it 20-7. (…And the team that saw Anthony Wilbur block that kick in 2003 began to dance.) With 2:04 to play Martinez hit paydirt again by going 8-yards to Barajas. The receiver’s third touchdown grab of the half made it 26-7 at the break. (…And the team in 2001 that saw Nick Kearney and the Knights grab the MVL’s final playoff spot began to feel the ceasing of their pain.) With 9:23 to play in the third quarter Morales got behind the Arroyo secondary for a 26-yard touchdown to make it 32-7. (…And Ev Bjorensen and Jack Barton high-fived in the heavens.) Aholoka added his 11-yard scoring run to stop the 26-0 run late in the fourth. “We got suckered out of what we wanted to do,” said Singiser. “Our game plan was

Spartans Get Leg Up On Matadors

By Duane Barker Montebello, CA -- The Schurr Spartans rallied to squeak out a 16-15 victory over the visiting San Gabriel Matadors capping the homecoming festivities Friday night at Ken Davis Field on Schurr’s campus. The rally was capped by a game winning 46-yard field goal by Estevan Tonche as time was evaporating into the night. The game winning drive started at the Spartan 34 where Schurr took possession after holding on defense and forcing the Matadors to punt on fourth and short on the San Gabriel side of the field. Eric Perez and Abel Troncoza provided much of the yardage on the drive picking up a couple of first downs along the way. It appeared that the drive came to an end when the Spartans Sal Chavez was picked just as Schurr was penetrating into the Matador side of the field. The interception however was nullified as San Gabriel was flagged for a roughing the passer call giving the Spartans new life. A couple more Chavez passes fell incomplete and Schurr trotted Tonche onto the field facing a field goal attempt of 51-yards. The initial snap was put down but before Tenoche could make the attempt, whistles blew halting the play. The flag was sorted and San Gabriel was called for being offside moving the ball five

yards closer for Tenoche. When the ball was snapped again, Tonche put his foot into a solid kick that sailed into the cool Montebello air and snuck through the left post for the game winner. San Gabriel held as much as a nine point lead with a little under eight minutes left in the third quarter. The Matadors took that lead on a 74-yard bomb from Marqus Valenzuela to Gabriel Larios. Valenzuela came on after Mikal Quintanilla came out of the game due to an injury. After the game Spartan head coach Marco Ramirez commented on his defense’s perCont. Page 10 formance.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Baldwin Park, CA - On October 2, Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park leadership hosted a tree planting ceremony on campus in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month to commemorate breast cancer survivors. Physicians, employees, and members attended the ceremony. Some of the staff who attended the event were breast cancer survivors while others attended in support of a loved one. Survivors had an opportunity to put their name on a pink ribbon and hang it on the tree, which is located by the member parking structure across from the lagoon. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and serves as a reminder to practice good breast health. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, but it can also appear in men. In the United States, it affects one in eight women. This year, estimated new cases of breast cancer in the U.S. are 229,060 according to the National Cancer Institute. Breast cancer is a cancerous growth that begins in the tissues of the breast. It is important to know the risk factors associated with breast cancer. Some risk factors, like a person's age or race, can't be changed. Other risk factors are related to personal behaviors such as smoking, drinking, and diet. Still others are linked to cancer-causing factors in the environment. Your risk for breast cancer can change over time with aging and lifestyle changes. “Some lifestyle related factors have been found to be a risk factor for the development of breast cancer. Having children have been found to reduce the risk. Using estrogen hormonal therapy after menopause may place you at a greater risk. While much is

not clear on the exact effects of diet, obesity, smoking and alcohol consumption, all patients are encouraged to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Weekly physical activity and weight control is encouraged for all women,” explains Hong Yoon Plurad, MD, General Surgery, Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center. The most common symptom of breast cancer is an abnormal mammogram. Women

without significant family history should have a baseline mammogram at age 40, every two years until age 50 and then every year after that. Breast cancer can also present as a new lump or mass. A mass that is painless, hard and has irregular edges is more likely to be cancerous. Being checked by a health care professional with experience in diagnosing breast diseases is recommended. Cont.

By Joe Torosian “Tell Graham... see. Tell him to see. And tell Merrill to swing away. “ --Colleen Hess Perspective man... You understand it...there’s a need for it...it is rational...it makes sense...and thoroughly a big pain in the neck. Yeah, when you’re young you can be forgiven for lacking perspective...but that means “forgiven” because perspective remains oh so necessary... Whether you are young or old. Part of the anticipated scene at El Monte Friday night was seeing the Lions, the Lions coaching staff, and anyone with any affiliation to the school going crazy after beating Arroyo for the first time since 1990. Rip up part of the field, tear down a goal post, rip up a picture of D.J. MacKinnon, Jim Singiser, Dominic Salmon, or Steven Rivera. Instead the players were in check...and the coaches, while elated, exhibited perspective. Let me tell you something if I’m David and I take down Goliath, I’m putting that head on a pike for the Philistines to see. If I’m the guy getting sand kicked in my face, then I’m going to rub salt into the bully, after I kick his butt, every chance I get. When I win a game of Uno, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit or get a prediction right on a football game, I twist that knife into my adversary and make him suffer. It’s what I do...actually it’s what I want to do...Until perspective steps in to keep my actions in check. It highlights my inner immaturity before I unleash it for the world to see. Perspective sometimes might feel like shackles, but it’s more like the wise hand of a parent or grandparent keeping you aware of what is happening all around you. With the clocked ticked down and the game ball presented Joel Sanchez and the El Monte coaching staff started talking about next week. About Rosemead. The id inside of him, inside of us all, may have wanted to jump up and down and scream it from the mountain top...But perspective reminded him, and the rest of those involved with the program, that the victory---big as it was--was only one of five they would need to win the Mission Valley League. Brandon Martinez was awesome, the team was marvelous, but Sanchez and his coaching staff was tremendous in understanding and employing perspective. This makes them even more dangerous going forward.

Road Warriors Shut Out Dons By Matt Schuler Baldwin Park, CA -Ruben Elias and Joseph Centeno both accounted for over 100 yards on the ground, Tizoc Monarrez and Robert Angulo each came down with a touchdown grab, and La Puente as a team breached the goal line a total six times in the process of shutting out Sierra Vista 42-0 on their home field Friday night in a Montview League match-up. Elias, the Warriors main offensive weapon on the ground, touched the ball 12 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Elias scored on a powerful 25 yard run in the second to give La Puente a 22-0 advantage with 2:51 remaining. Elias then capped off a 7-play drive with 8:41 in the third quarter, giving LP a comfortable 35-0 advantage. The Warriors (4-2, 2-1) played very opportunistic and capitalized off the Dons (2-2, 1-1) mistakes early. Five plays into the opening drive, LP back Jose Carrillo fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Joseph Sanchez at the 10 yard line. La Puente countered with a 16 play 90 yard drive and score with quarterback Ivan Vasquez hitting Angulo for the opening score.

GAME NIGHT PAGE 15

The Peterson Principle By Tim Peterson Associate Editor

It finally happened and it happened convincingly. For the first time in 21 years El Monte knocked off Arroyo. It wasn't close. El Monte jumped out to a 26-7 halftime lead and it was 32-7 as the Lions coasted from there. It wasn't exactly the way you expected Arroyo to go down but this Brandon Martinez guy... yeah he's something special. He threw for 375 yards and six touchdowns. On the year he has 22 touchdown passes and 2265 yards through the air in just six games. By the time the season is over he could be described as the best quarterback in El Monte history. Joel Sanchez probably summed it up best after the game. “Brandon is Brandon. I don't need to sit here and tell you how great he is,” Sanchez said. While Martinez was the best player on the field the best line of the night belonged to Arroyo HC Jim Singiser following the defeat. “You want me to bake them a cake?” he said. To give you an idea of how long ago it was since the Lions tasted victory over the Knights...In 1990 George Bush was the president – Senior not junior. General Manuel Noriega surrendered in Panama and South Africa freed Nelson Mandela after he was imprisoned for 27 years. Iraqi troops invaded Kuwait setting off the Persian Gulf War and Margaret Thatcher resigned as British Prime Minister. The U.S Appeals Court overturned Oliver North's Iran-Contra conviction and the median household income was $29,943. Unemployment was at 5.6 % and the cost of the first class postage stamp was 25 cents. San Francisco won the Super Bowl, Cincinnati took the World Series and Detroit won the NBA title. UNLV beat Duke to win the NCAA Basketball championship and in college football are you ready for this? Colorado...yeah Colorado was the AP Champion with a record of 11-1. Georgia Tech (11-0-1) won the UPI poll. Yes the Associated Press and United Press International still had a say in the champions of college football. Driving Miss Daisy was awarded the Academy Award for Best Picture. Oh, and El Monte beat Arroyo 30-0. Yeah it's been awhile. Hacienda Hysteria Bonita started the season 3-0 but is now 2-0 in the Hacienda League. Two time defending CIF Southeast Champion West Covina loses to Los Altos last week 17-14. Okay, well Los Altos is dominant right? Well actually no. The Conquerors lost to Diamond Bar 40-3 the week before they stunned WestCo and followed up the big win by losing to Rowland 28-13. Diamond Ranch hammered D-Bar Saturday night

50-22 but fell to the Bulldogs two weeks ago. So is Rowland right there with Bonita? Um, not really. The Raiders were routed by the Bearcats 57-16 two weeks ago. The only sure thing right now is that Walnut won't be a factor. The Mustangs are 0-2, 1-5 overall, and have been outscored 77-14 in league play. This week has Diamond Ranch at Los Altos, Bonita at West Covina and Rowland at Walnut. Is Bassett Back? No, the Olympians aren't necessarily back but they are much improved. There is an entire new coaching staff in place with Hector Spathias as HC and Jerry Urias at OC. Bassett jumped out to a 9-0 lead on undefeated Gladstone last Thursday night and was only down 23-22 at the half. G-Stone went on to win by three touchdowns but Gladiator Head Coach Albert Sanchez was impressed. 'They came out and punched us. Give credit to Bassett,” he said. Urias is doing a great job with the offense and has had to start basically from scratch. Most of the players weren't even sure how to run proper routes. Bassett is 2-5 overall and 1-1 in the Montview league, including an impressive 41-14 win over Workman last week. Gardens Party Bell Gardens 30-13 win over Alhambra was impressive but the thing that really stood out Friday night was the size of the crowd. I had to hike in three blocks after finally finding a parking place. The place was packed for Homecoming and with the crowd roaring you got the sense that the home field advantage really did come into play when the Lancers turned it on in the fourth quarter. And Jorge Remigio, well there's a moratorium on the word “beast”, so I'll just say he's really really good. That's my principle. Cont. from Page 8: La Fiesta

comeback or epic collapse. (…and “It’s time to go tip some back at the El Sombrero,” said one alumnus.) A 36-yard halfback option pass from Jesus Calvillo to David Cotero window dressed the score for the Knights. “It means a lot,” Sanchez said about the win. “We’ve talked about this game since losing to them last year, and we didn’t forget about it. The victory, its first over Arroyo since 1990, improved El Monte t0 4-2 overall (1-0), while the Knights fell to 3-3 (0-1). Cont. from Page 8: Spartans

Panthers Get Their Kicks in Victory By Alex Gonzalez Rosemead, CA- Rosemead’s Stephen Cansino kicked four of five field goals including a 43-yarder late in the fourth to seal the game as Rosemead held off South El Monte 2116 Friday night at Marinelli Stadium. “We really emphasized our special teams this week,” said Rosemead HC Marc Paramo. “Our kicker (Cansino) did an amazing job on the field goals.” Cansino missed his first attempt on the Panthers first drive but since that missed he was spot on for the remainder of the game. Cansino landed kicks from 40,26,35 and 42-yards out. The overall special teams effort for the Panthers made it difficult for the Eagles to have good field position. If it was either punting or kicking off, the Panthers did not give the Eagles a chance to return. “They have some dangerous guys back there and we didn’t want to give them any oppertunity to return the ball,” said Paramo. “The kids responded and they executed.” The running attack for Rosemead controlled the majority of the game. Both Everardo Camacho and Alec Zavala combined for 146-yards on 33 carries. The only score for the Panthers came in the first half when Camacho scrambled for a seven yard score. At the end of the first half, Rosemead was on top 13-0. It was a tale of two halves for the Eagles. In the first half, the Eagles couldn’t get going. The Panther defense stopped the run and didn’t allow anything down the field. La Habra transfer Levi Wells, who played in his first game, struggled passing the ball in the first half. He was picked off and sacked. But in the second half started, he turned around and led the Eagles to touchdown drives. His first came after Rosemead fumbled their kick off. He connected with Javier Machuca from 35-yards out early in the third quarter to make it 13-10. After a Panther field goal, the Eagles answered back with a seven play drive that ended with Wells connecting with Jordan Vargas from 13-yards out, tying the ball game at 16. On the ensuing drive, Rosemead did what they were doing all Cont. Page 14

A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by ROSARIO ANDRADE AND PATRICIA MONGE, in the Superior Court of California, County of LOS ANGELES. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that PATRICIA MONGE, be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the dece-dent’s lost will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independ-ent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal repre-sentative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be re-quired to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or con-sented to the proposed action.) The inde-pendent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on November 9, 2012 at 8:30 AM in Dept. A located at 300 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena, CA 91101. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

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.

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.

The drive ended when Cansino kicked a 43yard FG. “Too many mistakes and lack of focus,” said Eagle head coach Ibis Aguilar “We had way too many penalties in the first and scond half. It was lack of focus and not doing their job. Bottom line.”" “This was a make or break week for us,” said Paramo “I let the guys know that I’m not going to let off and we have to keep fighting.” Cont. from Page 9: Breast Cancer Awareness

Other possible signs of breast cancer include: • Swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt) • Skin irritation or dimpling • Nipple retraction (turning inward) • Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin • A nipple discharge other than breast milk Women should be aware of how their breasts normally look and feel and report any new breast changes to a health professional as soon as they

are found. “Women should not be scared to regularly get their mammograms. The earlier we find the breast cancer, the better the outcome,” advises Dr. Plurad. “With regular mammograms and our high quality integrated health care, we can find cancers earlier and save more lives.” Be sure to speak to your physician about breast cancer awareness at your next appointment.

AQUARIUS You are having a tough time with something that others find easy this week -- but don't let it get you down! Avoid the temptation to give up. PISCES You're having a great time this week -- so much so that you may want to round up your people and head out for the day! It's a good time to build social bridges.

Maya needs a Home

Look at this face! She’s 3-year-old mix of a bull terrier/ pitbull/bulldog. A big girl! Because of the breed’s reputation it took quite a while to get her adopted, even though she was a sweet, big “goofball” of a puppy who never met a stranger she didn’t like! When she was finally adopted, we were ecstatic because she went to a home where there was another pittie and they got along great. Unfortunately, now, the owner has fallen on hard times and has to give up both dogs. Maya only has until the end of October to find another home, or sadly, we know what that means. We need to give Maya another chance at a forever home and stable life! If you can help or adopt, please call 626-298-5463.

Maya with buddy enjoying the love
