Two Arcadia Churches Vandalized

Police say they are treating the recent vandalism of two Arcadia churches as religious hate crimes.
The first incident reportedly took place the evening of Jan. 19 or early morning of Jan. 20 at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 400 West Duarte Road. The suspect(s) forced open a door to the church office, ransacked it, and threw clergy robes on the ground, police said in a written statement. A fire extinguisher was discharged in the office and the suspect(s) burned part of a portrait hanging on the office wall before making off with a guitar and other sound equipment.

Meanwhile, shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, police received a 9-1-1 call from a passerby reporting suspicious activity at Holy Angeles Church, 330 Campus Drive.
Police discovered someone had broken into an administrative building on the church property and lit a small fire in the hallway. The flames burnt papers along with a small area of carpet, Arcadia Police Lt. Tom LeVeque said in a statement.
It appears the suspect(s) broke an office window to gain access to the building, LeVeque said, adding that two religious statues and a DVD player were broken and tossed to the ground inside a small chapel.
An interior officer door was kicked in, police said, and it appeared the suspect(s) also rummaged through several rooms inside the building.

Police say they believe the crimes may be related warned other religious facilities in the area to remain on guard.
Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5150. If you prefer to provide information ANONYMOUSLY, you may call “Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the tip page at Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers,

Vacationing L.A. Times Subscribers Targeted in Burglary Scam

Four people, including a La Verne man, are accused of using a Los Angeles Times list of vacationing subscribers to carry out a series of home burglaries throughout the San Gabriel Valley, Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials said today.
Investigators, including detectives from the Glendora Police Department, teamed to arrest Duane Van Tuinen, 51, of Azusa; Randall Whitmore, 43, of La Verne; Joshua Box, 43, of Arcadia; and Edwin Valentine, 52, of Covina.
Detectives said, Van Tuinen got a copy of the newspaper's vacation lists and passed them on to the others.
Thieves stole valuables from more than 25 residents in the San Gabriel Valley, including Diamond Bar, Walnut and Chino Hills, and shared the profits with Van Tuinen, officials said.
Detective suspect Van Tuinen got the lists through his work as an office machine repairman contracted by distributors of the Los Angeles Times, according to officials.
The investigation led officials to a West Covina storage locker on Thursday where hundreds of stolen items were recovered.
“Although much of the stolen property has been returned to the rightful owners, we are still trying to locate additional victims”, said Detective Jack Jordan of the Major Crimes Bureau in a written statement.
Investigators recovered additional collectible coins, musical instruments, collectible swords, computers and jewelry from the suspects’ homes, and cars.
Any residents who believe their property was stolen as part of this burglary ring can call LASD Detective Jack Jordan at 562-946-7893.

BREAKING: Law Enforcement Chase Winds Through Region

A driver of an older-model SUV weighing an estimated three tons was chased for nearly an hour before it ran out of gas on the eastbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway in Redlands tonight, authorities said.
The chase began in the San Dimas area at 6:05 p.m. on the freeway when sheriff's deputies saw the man driving recklessly, and possibly under the influence of alcohol or drugs, said Lt. David Vega of the San Dimas Sheriff's Station.
During the chase, the driver ran several red lights and through the gates of a railroad crossing. He also came close to mowing down some pedestrians and smashing into other vehicles. When the chase ended, lawmen found a lot of liquor in the vehicle, according to KCAL9.
The arrest in Redlands was handled by San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department deputies.
The man's name was not immediately available, Vega said.
Law enforcement chased a fleeing motorist from the Glendora area, ending in Redlands on Wednesday evening and he was surrendering at 7 p.m., according to televised images of the chase on multiple news channels.
The chase terminated in west Redlands and began in Los Angeles County, according to NBC4LA.

County Paid Out $100 Million-Plus to Settle Sheriff's Department Lawsuits

Legal claims and lawsuits against the Sheriff's Department have cost Los Angeles County taxpayers more than $100 million over the past three years, a county supervisor said Tuesday.
"Over the last three years, from 2009 to 2012, this board has authorized judgments, settlements, attorneys' fees and costs that total over $100 million," Supervisor Gloria Molina said, noting that the amount did not include another $18 million paid out from a fund set aside for legal claims.
Molina said the county had 255 claims pending against the Sheriff's Department, and that about $500,000 was spent on the Citizens' Commission on Jail Violence.
A discussion about liability and risk management, originally set to be heard by the board today, was put off until Feb. 26 at the request of the county's chief executive officer. An accounting of legal settlements in fiscal 2011-12 was not made available.
In fiscal 2010-11, the county paid out $107.4 million in claims across all departments and, at the time, lawyers for the county warned that costs were increasing.
Excessive force cases against the Sheriff's Department were up roughly 75 percent that year, prompting the county's litigation cost manager, Steven Estabrook to say: "That's something that we need to watch carefully and react to."
The biggest individual payouts that year included a $6 million payment in the Bouman class-action lawsuit -- which resulted in a 1993 consent decree regarding gender discrimination; $4.75 million related to a crash caused by an intoxicated sheriff's deputy; and $4.3 million for a man who was paralyzed from the waist down in a Taser incident in a Lakewood Station holding cell.
In November, the board agreed to pay $1.865 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that a sheriff's deputy used excessive force when he shot a man, leaving him a paraplegic.
Molina's comments were made during a discussion about a forensic audit of the Sheriff's Department's $2.8 billion budget.
"I think there are management issues going on with the Sheriff's Department," Molina said. "Mostly mismanagement issues. That liability is going up."

Planes of Fame Feb.2, 2013 Chino Airport

WHAT: Open to the public, Planes of Fame Air Museum (Chino, CA) presents its monthly Living History Flying Day. The topic for the February 2 event is ‘Jets of the Korean War', featuring the North American F-86 Sabre. The featured speaker is Royce Williams (Captain USN Retired), an F9F Panther pilot during the Korean War. The F-86 Sabre will be on display and perform a flight demonstration. At 12:00 noon, following the presentation, there will also be a Membership Sponsored raffle flight.
WHO: Captain E. Royce Williams had boyhood dreams of becoming a military pilot. In 1943, he enlisted, and he became a naval aviator. Royce became carrier qualified in the F6F Hellcat on the old USS Ranger (CV-4.) He flew the F6F, and later the F4U Corsair and the F8F Bearcat. Royce eventually transitioned to jets, where his first operational deployment was on board the USS Oriskany, flying the F9F-5 Panther. While deployed in 1952 to Korea with the VF-781, Royce engaged seven Soviet-piloted MiG-15s. It is believed that Royce downed three of the bogies, although official reports credited him with only one. With his Panther badly shot up, Royce limped back to the Oriskany. MiG kills were rare for the Navy in Korea (only 55 aerial victories), and the Panther was generally outclassed by the Mig-15 in most dogfights. Royce retired from the Navy in 1980. He served as an exchange pilot with the USAF flying the F-86 and F-100. He also served as CO, XO and of VF-33 on board the USS Enterprise flying the F8-E Crusader, and later on board the USS America flying the F-4 Phantom 11. Royce's decorations include the Silver Star, the Legion of Merit with Combat "V", the Distinguished Flying Cross, and the Bronze Star Medal.
Kevin Thompson (POF Moderator and Aviation Historian) and Edward Maloney (Museum Founder & Curator, and Aviation Historian) moderate and join in the presentation.
WHEN: Saturday, February 2, 2013, 10am–12 noon: Speaker program & flight demonstration. Museum doors open at 9:00am.
WHERE: Planes of Fame Air Museum, 7000 Merrill Avenue #17, Chino, CA 91710
WHY: It is the Mission of Planes of Fame Air Museum to preserve aviation history, inspire interest in aviation, educate the public, and honor aviation pioneers and veterans. The Museum sponsors regular events in the form of inspirational experiences, educational presentations, flight demonstrations, and airshows in fulfillment of this mission.

City to the West to Be Affected By Closure of La Verne Water Plant

In preparation of making major repairs on several on a La Verne and an Eagle Rock water treatment facility, the Pasadena City Council has declared a Level 4 water shortage emergency from Feb. 21-28 and has banned outdoor watering, with very few exceptions, in the city until pipeline deliveries resume.
With outdoor watering being Pasadena's greatest use of water, "the only solution to avoid running out of water is to curb demand and be self- sustaining," Pasadena Water and Power Assistant General Manager of Water Shan Kwan said.
"Our horticultural consultants advise that most established plants and lawns can hold up well without water for eight days, and much longer in this cooler weather," Pasadena Water and Power Water Conservation Manager Nancy Long said.
"We are telling our customers to consider rescheduling any new landscaping plans, since plants that aren't yet established are much more vulnerable."
A citywide notice "to help everyone get ready well in advance," will be mailed, Pasadena Water and Power General Manager Phyllis Currie said.
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California will stop all water deliveries to Pasadena and neighboring cities in order to perform system repairs and upgrades at its Eagle Rock Tower in Eagle Rock and its Weymouth Treatment Plant in La Verne.
Before the pipeline shutdown, Pasadena Water and Power will fill its 18 reservoirs with about 80 million gallons of local groundwater and water imported from Metropolitan Water District.
Although normal consumption during this period is about 22 million gallons per day, local groundwater wells only produce a maximum of 12 million gallons per day, making heightened conservation during the shutdown critical, particularly outdoors, Currie said.
"Even though this temporary cut in our water supply is severe, we are confident that Pasadena will once again rise to the challenge and cut back on daily water use, so that we all have enough water for drinking and vital indoor uses," Currie said.
Pasadena Water and Power customers "exceeded all expectations" for conservation during a water shortage emergency in 2011 "and helped us cut back water use by more than 30 percent. We believe they will rally this time again," Currie said.
Water-waste violations can be reported through the Water Shortage Hotline at (626) 744-8888.
More information on the watering ban, tips for how to prepare, and daily updates during the shutdown can be found at, on Pasadena Water and Power's Facebook page on its Twitter account, PWPNews.
Additional information will be posted on the city government's homepage, and Pasadena's main Twitter account, PasadenaGov.

WATCH: 3-Day Count of L.A. County Homeless to Begin Tonight

A three-day count of the homeless population in much of Los Angeles County will begin tonight in the San Gabriel Valley and East Los Angeles.
The effort, billed as the largest in the nation to tabulate the numbers of homeless, is conducted every two years, coordinated by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.
Volunteers will count the homeless on streets and at hospitals, jails and foster care and mental health facilities, along with places not intended for people to live, such as cars, parks, sidewalks and abandoned buildings, according to LAHSA.
The count in Monrovia will begin at 6 p.m. until midnight for the next three days. Volunteers will meet United Methodist Church, 140 East Palm Avenue.
The count will cover about 4,000 square miles, and will including Glendora, Azusa, San Dimas, La Verne and Claremont. It will exclude Glendale, Pasadena and Long Beach, where other agencies will count the homeless, Arnold said.
The count will be conducted in West Los Angeles and the South Bay Wednesday, the Antelope Valley Thursday morning and the San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, metropolitan Los Angeles and South Los Angeles Thursday night.
"The 2013 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count is unquestionably the most important exercise we do to learn who are the men, women and children amongst us experiencing homelessness and that's why I commend the many volunteers, communities and organizations from all over Los Angeles for stepping forward to join LAHSA in this effort," Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said.
The count conducted in 2011 found a homeless population of 45,422 people, a drop of more than 2,000 from the 2009 count, when the tally was 47,572, according to LAHSA.
LAHSA says data collected over the next three days will be analyzed over several weeks to create a demographic survey that can be used to plan and deploy resources serving the homeless.
"We all have a stake in in preventing and ending homelessness," LAHSA Executive Director Michael Arnold said. "The thousands of volunteers from communities all over Los Angeles participating in the count ... demonstrate that people care enough about this issue to make a tangible commitment to do something about it."

Diamond Bar High Food Truck Festival Set for Feb. 9

Diamond Bar High School will host seven top gourmet food trucks in a fundraising festival on Saturday, Feb. 9th.
The food truck festival will go from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the front parking lot of Diamond Bar High School, located at 21400 E. Pathfinder Road in Diamond Bar.
The area’s most popular trucks are scheduled for theevent and include the Lime Truck, winner of the Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race – Season 2” and My Delight Cupcakes, recognized as LA’s Cupcake Challenge winners. The other food fusion trucks include Jogasaki Sushi Burritos, Bool Korean BBQ, KomodoTruck, the Trailer Park Truck, and Slammin’ Sliders. A percentage of sales from each truck will be donated to benefit the event.
"The Diamond Bar High School FOOD FEST FUNDRAISER is always a terrific day for us," said Tom Miller, owner and operator of Slammin' Sliders Truck. "The community really comes out to support these food truck events and we’re looking forward to being back in Diamond Bar."
The planned FOOD TRUCK FEST marks a return to Diamond Bar High School after the December event was cancelled because it was scheduled on the same day as student Danika Tibayan's funeral. The Magnificent 7, the Diamond Bar High School parent organization representing the diverse community of students at the high school, will benefit collectively from the FOOD TRUCK FEST Fundraiser and is hoping for another large and well-supported community event.
“With the unfortunate events that caused the cancellation of our December Food Fest, the DBHS Magnificent 7 team is looking forward to an even bigger and better FOOD TRUCK Fundraiser on February 9th,” said Clark Rucker, president of the Magnificent 7. “Some of our favorite trucks will be returning and we'll have a few new surprises. We hope that everyone enjoys all that is planned.”
The admission donation for the festival is $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for students, and children under 5 years old are admitted free. No outside food or beverages (or pets) are permitted. For more information visit and follow the event on twitter @DBHSFoodFest.

Even back then I was using wood for my art projects, if I see a building that they are ready to tear down. I would go inside and grab what I could to paint on. For instance the one with John Lennon was painted on a old medicine cabinet I got from a old hotel they ended up tearing down.

ExpressLanes of the I-10 Freeway to Debut on February 23

Metro plans to open the new 14-miles of Metro ExpressLanes along the I-10 San Bernardino Freeway at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, February 23, 2013.
Along the I-10 freeway, an additional toll lane has been constructed in each direction between the 605 and the 710 freeways to add capacity along that heavily traveled corridor.
From a Metro press release:
"For the past couple of months, motorists have been seeing messages on the giant display message boards along the I-10 San Bernardino Freeway in preparation for the opening of the Metro ExpressLanes.
"We are excited to announce the opening date and want to encourage San Gabriel Valley commuters to get their FasTrak® transponders now so they will be ready to enjoy all the benefits of the ExpressLanes when the lanes open on the 10 freeway in February,” said Duarte Councilmember and Metro Board Member John Fasana.
“With the successful opening of the I-110 ExpressLanes, we look forward to seeing how the I-10 ExpressLanes will reduce traffic congestion in the San Gabriel Valley.”
The ExpressLanes program seeks to reduce congestion by improving travel choices in the two corridors. Carpools, vanpools, and motorcycles will travel toll free. All motorists will need a FasTrak® transponder to travel in the ExpressLanes.
When the I-10 ExpressLanes open in February, the rules for carpools on the I-10 freeway will stay the same as they are today. Carpools are three or more people traveling during peak travel times of 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, with holidays excluded.
During peak travel times, carpools of just two people can travel in the I-10 San Bernardino Metro ExpressLanes for a toll. All other times, they will travel toll-free in the ExpressLanes.
At all times on both freeways, the general purpose lanes are not tolled. Net toll revenues will be reinvested in the corridor where they are generated for transportation improvements. To prevent backups in the ExpressLanes, the tolls will be adjusted from .25 cents a mile to a maximum of $1.40 a mile and will increase as the number of vehicles in the ExpressLanes increase.
For now, the carpool lanes are still operating on the I-10 freeway until the conversion to Metro ExpressLanes, so solo drivers cannot use FasTrak® on the I-10 freeway until the ExpressLanes open next month."

Fun and Free is not Far From Claremont and La Verne

This weekend's rainy weather is cooperating with at least one event occurring across Southern California -- the eighth annual "Museums Free For All."
The event offers free admission today at several art galleries, cultural centers and museums from Long Beach to Pasadena to the Westside of Los Angeles.
Museums open for free include the Annenberg Space for Photography, the Autry, California African American, California Science Center, Fowler at UCLA, Hammer, Getty Center, and Getty Villa.
Also open are the Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Latin American Art, the Paley Center for Media, Skirball Cultural Center and the Long Beach State University Art Museum.
A portion of participating museums were also open Jan. 26. The Craft and Folk Art Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Tolerance, the Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art were offering free admission today only.
Some museums will charge admission to special shows, or for parking, and some require advance reservations. Exact information about that, and operating hours, is available at the website.


Green Fees to Increase at County Golf Courses

The Board of Supervisors voted this week to raise greens fees at county golf courses.
Fees at 18-hole county courses will increase 50 cents for seniors on weekdays, $1 for other weekday players and $1.50 on weekends, effective March 1. Other fees will change proportionately, but fees for junior golf, twilight golf and tournament registration will not go up.
Current fees are about 25 percent less than the average charged at similar municipal courses in Southern California and the increases will not completely close that gap, according to the Department of Parks and Recreation.
Operating costs for the courses have gone up an estimated 10 percent since 2011 -- when the fees were last increased -- and revenues have failed to keep pace with the cost of maintenance and improvements, parks officials said.
The fee hikes are expected to raise an additional $141,000 in county revenues through June 30 and $338,000 annually in future years.

Maybe someday we can bring at least one back to Pomona

This would be great to bring these back to Downtown Pomona, back in the day not only did they travel on the main streets of Pomona. But also on some of our side streets, like bringing in people from our neighborhood's. It would be nice if you could just step out your door, and walk to the corner to catch a trolley to Downtown and ride in style. Like I said maybe someday we all can enjoy a ride like they did so many years ago.

Men Disappointed in Sandwich Length File Lawsuits Against Subway

If you're headed to Subway bring your appetite—and your ruler.
This past week, lawsuits were filed in California and New Jersey accusing the fast-food franchise of fraud and false advertising. Plaintiffs say the footlong subs just don't measure up.
According to a report in The Sacramento Bee, a suit filed Thursday in Sacramento by Richard Springer says the footlong sandwiches come up short of 12 inches.
The suit, which seeks class-action status, claims Springer “suffered an injury in fact and lost money as a result of the deceptive and unfair conduct” of Subway, according to the newspaper.
And in New Jersey, two men are also suing the sandwich giant because they say the advertised footlong sub is just shy of 12 inches.
According to NBC 10, the lawsuit was filed this week. The plaintiffs, John Farley of Evesham and Charles Noah Pendrack of Ocean City, NJ, said they measured 17 Subway footlong sandwiches and all were not quite 12 inches.
