1 Costco Moves To Monterey Park Monterey Park & West Valley Journal Published by Barron Communications.P.O. Box 987, Monterey Park, CA May 2016 Former Councilmen Gershon Lewis and Mike Eng helped cut the city Birthday cake- Photo by David Muñoz City Launches Centennial Celebration For the first time in years, people came out to watch the annual Play Days Parade celebrating the founding of the city of Monterey Park on Saturday, May 14. A cheerful pre-parade gathering at Monterey Park city hall drew nearly 100 local residents who witnessed the declaration of the city s centennial, the cutting of a birthday cake and unveiling of a city monument. Also available were photo exhibits of the city s past ranging from the early 1900 s to the current period. Also displayed were a number of historic items that will be placed in a time capsule, which will be buried at a later date. Mayor Peter Chan expressed his pleasure of being the city s centennial mayor although another council member will replace him in just a few weeks in the mayor s slot. Mayor Chan reminded the audience that a group of 400 residents incorporated the city when two cities to the north (South Pasadena and Alhambra) wanted to establish a sewer farm in Monterey Park. A number of past council members were present to witness the ceremonies, including Louise Davis, Monty Manibog, Lily Chen, Gershon Lewis, Frank Venti, Judy Chu, Mike Eng, Rita Valenzuela and past city clerks Theresa Amador, Pauline Lemire and David Barron. Current city officials joining Mayor Chan at the (Continued on Page 7) Discount Super Store Planned for Market Place Costco Wholesale department store will be moving to the Monterey Park Marketplace Shopping Center in South Monterey Park, a city official confirmed today. Costco will move its current location in Montebello to Monterey Park. The larger footprint will allow Costco to establish a discount gasoline station in Monterey Park. There is no room for a gas station at the Montebello site. City Manager Paul Talbot confirmed that Costco and the developers of the Market Place have reached an agreement on the project. Planning papers were filed two weeks ago, making the project public. The city is planning a formal announcement in the near future, Talbot said. Under the City s prior agreement with Montebello, that city will get 50 per cent of the sales tax benefit from Costco for the next five years. After that, Montebello will receive 18 percent of the Sales Taxes permanently. The remaining sales tax will go to the Monterey Park treasury. Sales taxes are expected to amount to several hundred thousand dollars annually. Costco has been looking at the Monterey Park site for more than 2 years, seeking a location for its discount gasoline station, a highly lucrative business operation. Costco also has a very busy store and gasoline station in Alhambra. It is expect that Costco will open its doors in Monterey Park within two years. A Home Depot hardware store is also planned at the Market Place shopping center. By moving the location to Monterey Park, the Costco Discount Store will edge closer to the South (Continued on Page 3) Monterey Park Cop Charged With Sexually Assaulting Women The District Attorney s office has formally charged a Monterey Park police officer with sexually assaulting or detaining three women while on duty. They alleged that the officer forced each victim to expose herself during a stop. The officer was identified as Israel Sanchez, 40, who has been on the Monterey Park Police force for three years. Sanchez is charged with three counts of false imprisonment, one count of bribery, two counts of sexual assault under color of authority and four counts of sexual battery by restraint. He pleaded not guilty at a preliminary hearing. All the charges are felonies, and if convicted, Sanchez faces more than eight years in state prison. The Monterey Park Police Department and the city of Monterey Park are taking this situation extremely seriously, said Police Chief Jim Smith in a prepared statement. As public servants we hold ourselves to the highest ethics and standards and have zero tolerance policy (Continued on Page 8)

It will be the second time he serves in the position. Ing will succeed Peter Chan who recently completed his nine months and two weeks as mayor. Ing is a banker and is in his third term as a city council member. Moving up to become vice mayor or mayor pro tem will be Council member Teresa Real Sebastian. At his last meeting as Mayor on Wednesday, May 18, Chan gave a farwell speech and gave a review of his service. He enthusiastically stated that he had enjoyed his period as mayor and expressed pride in being the Centennial Mayor. Be a c h c o m b e r The Need for Public Involvement By David Barron The recent deliberation by the Monterey Park City Council of a proposed cell phone tower at a church is a great example of due process and the rights of citizens to participate in key decisions. AT&T was proposing the installation of a bell tower at church to help improve their cell phone signal in Monterey Park. I used to have AT&T cell phone service here and it was terrible. I switched to Verizon and have received excellent service. The city council dedicated three public hearings on the proposal and heard numerous arguments from residents, technical officials and city staff. The planning commission also spent several hours on this subject. Many speakers spoke in opposition and in support of the proposed bell tower that will house the cell phone antenna. It would also hide the AT&T equipment from public view. The church will be getting a $2,000 monthly rental fee from AT&T for the cell tower, which will come in handy for them, as they are a small congregation serving immigrant families. The city is precluded by federal law from considering health issues resulting from electro-magnetic waves according to AT&T. Even so, the potential health risks from electro-magnetic were frequently presented. So much so, that AT&T lawyers threatened a lawsuit if they didn t receive approval of the project. Other issues raised by speakers included religious concern over placement of cell antennas under a cross and height of the building. Council member Real Sebastian argued that the cell tower was not needed. She also called AT&T bullies and challenged them to sue the city. As the debate continued, some council members and the public were rather pragmatic and others emotional. There were a couple of solutions proposed. Mayor Peter Chan suggested working with Congress through Rep. Judy Chu to change the law to give local government more freedom to participate in this process. Councilman Mitchell Ing suggested changing city codes to allow the council to find some planning reasons for denying too many cell towers and work around federal telecommunications law. In the end, Council member Real Sebastian made a motion, seconded by Ing to adopt a resolution overturning the Planning Commission approval. The vote at the end was two yes s (Ing & Sebastian); two no s (Chan & Liang) and one abstention (Lam). The motion failed as a result of a 2-2 vote. The council took no further action and as a result, the Planning Commission approval was upheld. You can expect to see construction of the bell tower beginning immediately. If you re concerned about the amount of time spend on the subject consider this: In many city councils through out the southland many decisions are made with little discussion and no public involvement. Discussions and workshops, are held in small conference rooms, with little public involvement because they are held in the middle of the day. Subsequently, votes are taken at regular council meetings without staff reports or council comments.

May 2016 OPINION Goodbye Annual Lions Club Breakfast As a result of frustrations over negotiations with the city for rental of storage facilities for White Cane manufactoring equipment, Monterey Park Lions Club has canceled next June s traditional Ham n Eggs Pancake Breakfast held each year since The club has vacated its storage facility and remove its equipment from the Service Club House at Barnes Park. The club had been negotiating with the city since last fall to renew its lease on the building. At a council meeting, the club publicly cancelled its appeal to the council and said No Mas. The Lions Club takes credit for constructing the building decades ago and donating it to the city for public use. The Service Club House is located at the southwest corner of Barnes Park and is rented out for parties and city classes. The Lions Club used a side room to store equipment and supplies used to produce White Canes which are sold for fund raising purposes by Lions Clubs to clubs throughout the world The Lions Club lease was on the council agenda after having been continued last December. A controversy arose over a false conflict of interest challenge that would limit or exclude the participation of Councilman Stephen Lam in the decision. Lam is a member of the Lions and past president. We think, the Lions Club saw the whole matter as an assault on their reputation and history of community service. City staff had given the city council several options for their decision, ranging from continuing the current lease at $160 a month for the storage facility to issuing a three day notice to quit and vacate the site. The city has had some difficulties with non-profit groups who use city facilities because of increases in fees and sometime discourteous treatment. Sometimes it is that the non-profit groups appear to be playing politics because their membership may include elected officials. Over all, the service clubs, both old and new ones, have a lot of pride in their public service and resent any questioning of their motives and programs. On the other hand, there are many fine examples of cooperation between service clubs and the city. We recommend that the city management and elected officials have an annual summit and set out guidelines and goals for the year. What do you think?

4 Page 4 Sports For All! Have Respect for Sports Scorekeepers! By Chuck Lyons This is the first of Sports for All Reports that will cover many sports for all ages and from youth sports to professionals with a goal to provide some pertinent recent information, schedule of upcoming events, scores and game coverage, comments about what is going on in sports and more. West Valley Journal (monthly print edition) and web site edition Publisher Dave Barron encourages readers to submit information about their team to for consideration, with the understanding space sometimes is limited. The coverage area is basically Monterey Park and Alhambra on the west, San Gabriel on the north, Rosemead on the east, and South El Monte and Montebello on the south for youth sports. There will be some coverage of professional sports teams Los Angeles Clippers, Lakers, Kings, Galaxy, Dodgers, Rams and some colleges Cal State University Los Angeles, East Los Angeles College, Pasadena City College, Rio Hondo College, and other teams and other sports like Santa Anita Race Track for horses, Irwindale Speedway for cars, and local 5Ks runs/walks (5,000 meters) for fun and for people to help keep them in good shape. The Santa Anita Derby 5K story and photos got hundreds of visits on so we will be covering some 5Ks races. What sport and level would you like covered? Now is your opportunity to speak up! The web site gets many visits a month from readers and although we have recently greatly increased sports coverage, we have a very limited staff so we will do our best and appreciate your understanding. A way to help the publication is if you own or work at a business that would like to promote itself (at reasonable prices) is to advertise to support the newspaper and web site that support the community with local news and sports coverage. If interested you can send a note to Publisher Dave Barron at com and he will respond to discuss helping your company promote itself to the readers. Local newspapers and web sites about local coverage are vital to local communities across U.S. to keep unbiased news continuing to those communities and its citizens. Thank you in advance for your support. Now to some general comments: Do you know the most important people on a high school sports team for home games? The score keepers. Without a score keeper the game is a forfeit by the host team! There are some people who are asked last minute to fill in and you can imagine the results. And then there are youth and adults alike who do a great job of properly filling in the score books in providing a great service to the teams. Usually these people are volunteers and the better training up front the better job they do in creating a history of the team s records and achievements! Now a special request: Scorekeepers PLEASE get the first AND last name of each player and put in the score book. Some people only get first or last names which makes it difficult to report on games unless there are first and last names included in the scorebook. The next time you are at a game please thank the scorekeeper for their time, achievements of recording the team s history and providing proper information to news media and school officials for recognition. A reminder, although we all would like a son or daughter to be a great players and have great stats please be respectful to score keepers. The score keepers have a job to do so let them do it. You want to help? Be a announcer or something else the team needs. At the high school level, went to cover a local early-season girls softball game between Alhambra and Rosemead. With the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains in the horizon at Rosemead the two teams battled for nine innings before Alhambra was victorious in extra innings. Both teams kept playing and playing matching each other with the umpires keeping a watchful eye on the time and the sun setting in the West. Great game for all. And Rosemead s Alexis Batres had an incredible game with two home runs, another hit, and from her third base position not once, but twice, stopped a ground ball and then threw from her knees to first baseman Brianna Ramirez to get out the Alhambra runner. Until next time, enjoy and support your local teams from youth to pros.

6 Page 6 Rosemead Student Plant Water-Wise Landscaping Rosemead High School students are doing something positive to help the community grow up by starting Panther Farm and installing and developing a water-wise native plant garden by the school marquee sign at the corner of Rosemead Boulevard and Mission Drive. They are using drip irrigation for the plants to save water now and in the future said Joe Vasquez, director of Panther Farm and an English teacher at Rosemead High School. Vasquez recently earned his Master Gardener certificate from County of Los Angeles after he completed weeks of educational training. The marquee area was difficult to prepare and required the use of a rototiller to prepare the hard ground and remove some tree roots. Rosemead High School Coach Chuck Lyons volunteered and rototilled the area. Students prepared the landscape and installed a rain catch basin to keep the water in the garden instead of running off into the street. Local water supplier California American Water Co. made a major financial contribution and Eco Tech Services, Inc. put in a drip irrigation system along with matting and layers of mulch so the irrigation isn t even seen. Vasquez said Rosemead High School is very happy California American Water contributed to the project. Other agencies providing assistance were the City of Rosemead, Rosemead Chamber of Commerce, City of El Monte, Southern California Edison, the Whole Kids Foundation, the San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps, San Gabriel Nursery, Eco Tech Services, National Wildlife Foundation, and Los Angeles Chapter of United States Green Buildings Council. We are happy more and more students are joining Panther Farm, said Vasquez. We started with a handful of students and now have about three dozen students participating at different times. On a recent Saturday morning it looked almost like a school day with many students volunteering their time to weed, spread mulch, plant and maintain the water-wise drip irrigation system by the school marquee at the front of the school and also develop Panther Farm, said Vasquez. On campus at Panther Farm, students recently removed grass sod that was replanted at another place on campus, prepared the soil, and then planted an apple orchard with three plant varieties that should grow well in the local climate, according to Vasquez. The varieties are Anna, Fuji, and Gala apples. Students have also used two-liter soft drink bottles to create a container garden area, which is ideal for people who wish to grow herbs or flowers in small areas, stated Vasquez. Students also volunteered to spread mulch in other areas of the school to help beautify the campus. Students volunteer on most Mondays and Wednesdays after school for an hour so they have time for schoolwork and other activities, emphasized Vasquez. They are learning life lessons about working together as a community on campus and within our city, they learn about our environment, and they are great role models for other students, which is working because more students continue to come and join Panther Farm.

According to the District Attorney s office, while on duty, Sanchez allegedly forced each victim to expose herself during a stop. In two instances, he allegedly touched the victims after ordering them to expose themselves. The victims were between 20 and 28 years old when the alleged assaults occurred between July 28, 2014, and August In a press release, the Monterey Park Police Department stated that in 2014 upon receiving a complaint, Sanchez was placed on administrative leave which is accordance with Monterey Park Police Department policies. The department then brought in an outside third party the Long Beach Police Department to conduct the in-depth investigation to eliminate any conflict of interest. Long Beach Police said in a press release that after a year-long investigation, the case was presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney Justice System Integrity division in August Long Beach Police located Sanchez Israel Sanchez near his residence in Whittier and arrested him without incident shortly after the District Attorney filed charges this week. Long Beach Police said the investigation remains on going. Detectives believe additional victims may exist in the area of Monterey Park and encourage anyone with information regarding this case to call the Long Beach Police department sex Crimes Detail at (562) Monterey Park Journal May 2016 Sh e i l a Yo n e m o t o, P.T. Exercise Improves Learning By Sheila Yonemoto, P.T. My eye doctor says that learn- Sheila Yonemoto P.T. ing is affected by how an individual has trained their body to move. Movement skills affect how we use our eyes and process visual information and create the foundation for the finer control of the eye muscles and subsequent learning abilities. Since she works with children with visual difficulties, she sees how important these movement skills are. We are all born with primitive reflexes designed to help us in the first months of life. These reflexes disappear as we develop strength, coordination and control of our bodies, but can reappear after a stroke or head trauma. Parents and teachers can help integrate these primitive reflexes by encouraging movement skills to develop strength, balance, eyehand coordination and timing. Adults with head trauma also have problems processing visual information which can affect reading, walking without bumping into furniture and other visual tasks. Adults age 50+ who have had physical education classes in school and played outside while growing up performed better or had an easier time relearning than those who were in their 20 s when they had the head trauma. These older adults had a better foundation in their movement skill development than the younger patients who grew up with computers and video games and spent less time playing outside. Children s outdoor activities help develop more body strength, eyehand coordination, balance and better physical fitness. Games like hopscotch, jump rope, playing with jacks, climbing and playing with balls all contribute to balance, coordination, timing, strength and fine motor skill development. The large muscles of the body create the foundation for the finer skills needed for the eyes. Infants need to go through various stages of development so these primitive reflexes get integrated into the nervous system. Oftentimes, parents are anxious for their child to walk early, but there are good reasons for the crawling stage. Especially now, in this age of computers with emphasis on intellectual pursuits, we must make sure we include a healthy dose of physical activity in our children s lives. Perhaps this would be a good thing for all of us, no matter our age. **** Sheila Yonemoto, P.T., has been a physical therapist for more than 30 years, specializing in integrative manual therapy, utilizing a holistic approach.
