    SMT: Chief Schaefer, what is new at the San Marino Police Department since last year’s SMPD tribute issue?


    CERTAINLY wasn’t the cakewalk Titan tennis fans have become accustomed to, but
    San MarinoHigh School’s netters did enough Tuesday afternoon to advance to the
    CIF semifinals, when they travel to Palm
    Desert next Tuesday with
    yet another spot in the finals hanging in the balance and the sands of their
    stay in Division II sifting away.

    Thanks to
    the overall improvement of the Rio Hondo League – Temple City and La Cañada also earned berths
    in Tuesday’s quarters – the Titans will do business with the Division I big
    boys next season. Co-coaches Paula Bush and John Kuramoto hope their charges can
    strike while the iron’s hot, and the team’s 10-8 victory over neighbor Arcadia did the job –
    barely. Burnt in the CIF finals last year after shanking a seemingly
    insurmountable advantage, Titan tennis has learned to count every point, and
    the calculators could be heard Tuesday.

    “It is the most exciting idea I ‘ve heard in years and it
    could totally change opthalomology,” said Dr. Stephen J. Ryan, president of Doheny
    Eye Institute and a resident of San
    Marino. He was guest speaker at the
    Luminaires luncheon meeting May 13th at the Valley Hunt Club.

    Ryan is the
    founding President of the National Alliance for Eye and Vision Research (NAEVR)
    and is Home Secretary of the Institute
    of Medicine of The National
    Academy of Sciences.

    explained the revolutionary idea being developed at Doheny, that instead of
    having to go back and forth to see an ophthalmologist or go to an office for scheduled
    tests you would just look into a set of binoculars, then data would be
    transmitted electronically to a physician who would be able to interpret that data..
    He said” Now you can go into a pharmacy or places where you can put out your
    arm to check your blood pressure or have your pulse checked, etc. Wouldn’t it
    be great if you could have your vision checked and screened in a similar way so
    you didn’t need to go the doctor or technician?”

    illustrated this concept with an iphone. Holding it up, he touched an icon that
    might check your vision, touched another one that might do a retina
    examination, touch another that could do a muscle balance test, all the while
    looking into the binoculars.

    At the
    conclusion of his talk a check for over $83,000 was presented to Dr. Ryan.
