San Marino’s Homecoming Parade took place on a warm, sunny afternoon on October 29, 2010.
SAN GABRIEL – It did not start well for Gabrielino. And it did not finish that well either. Arroyo outscored the Eagles by a margin of 42 points in the first half. The final score was 49-6 after what may have seemed like the quickest half in high school football history.

Last week I discussed some of the common-sense Passive Systems that can be incorporated into any home to improve its affect upon the environment.
The community of Arcadia has been experiencing distraction
type burglaries over the past several weeks. The suspects in these incidents are commonly referred to by
the victims as “Gypsy” type individuals. The method of distraction involves the suspects portraying themselves
as officials with various government agencies or sub-contractors through
government agencies. Such
vocations represented are: Department
of Water & Power employees, construction employees, and tree trimmers.
These crimes occur during day time hours and focus on
elderly victims. Once the suspect
gains the victim’s trust and confidence, the suspect is allowed inside. A second suspect then enters the
residence and commits the theft. The
victim is unaware their valuables have been stolen and ultimately both suspects
leave the residence minutes apart.
The Arcadia Police Department is reminding residents to be
aware of these crimes of trickery and encourage them to never allow anyone
inside of their homes without positively verifying the individual’s identity
If you encounter an incident such as the one described,
please call the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5150. If it is an emergency, please call

SAN GABRIEL – With Michael Battle and the members of the
church vestry still at odds with other members of the vestry and many parish
members, a well-known arbitrator has stepped in to see what he can do to solve
the dispute at Church of Our Savior.
That man is Bishop J. Jon Bruno. On Tuesday night not an
empty seat could be found at one of the church’s largest halls as he spoke of
his role in this delicate, yet volatile matter. Several parishioners were able
to voice their concerns as well.
The purpose of his presence in the church is “to look at the
whole situation and act as the arbitrator and decide what’s going to happen,” he
Concerned parishioners of the church set out to discuss two
goals Tuesday. The first was to talk about alleged illegal acts by the vestry
and/or the rector. The second was to vote to remove the following vestry
members: Ed Andersen, Mike Goodrich, Tom Shenk, Harry Baldwin, Faith Sand,
Barbara Robertson, Maureen Conn, Dinah Roberts, Craig Watson, Rodney Reynolds,
Pat Shirley, Stephen Godwin, Gayle Richardson and Judy Hill.
While discussion did take place, no removal of any vestry
members took place.
Bruno, since the 15th of September has been at
various vestry and committee meetings, as well as a Sunday, to learn as much as
he can about the church and what course of action COOS should take as it moves
along. He will continue to make his presence felt. So how long will he be
“For as long as I have to be,” he said. “I know it’s going
to be a minimum of six months that I’m here. And it could be longer.”
Bruno has been the Bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles for
11 years. He was a professional in various fields, including law enforcement,
seminary and church administration and has been a pastor for 33 years.
At Tuesday’s meeting, various issues were addressed,
including finances, church therapy, transparency and the church’s vetting
In the event there will be a swift and gracious conclusion
to the conflict, the bishop will continue to administer 147 congregations, 44
schools and 20 institutions.
“[COOS] is a wonderful congregation. It has a great history
of social justice ministry under Dennis O’Pray,” he said. “And it’s continuing
now at Church of Our Savior Center and at Kid’s Place.”
