Monrovia Council to Endorse Sales Tax

Not surprisingly, since it came up with the plan, the Monrovia City Council will endorse tax measure K (https://shrtm.nu/Cvqe) at its next meeting.


The point of the tax is to raise to the legal limit Monrovia’s sales tax, thereby preventing the county from grabbing the money. If the county then passes a new sales tax Monrovia wouldn’t have to pay it.

Dinner at Mooyah Burger

Dinner at Mooyah Burger recently. Got The Paleo burger- lettuce instead of a bun, two patties of beef, bacon and avocado - for $10.57, fries for $3.29, and an iced tea for $2.49. (Those are the regular prices; I had a coupon.) The lettuce bun was different but good. Nice meal.

'FrankenMass' Choral Concert Nov. 2

The San Gabriel Valley Choral Company will present "FrankenMass," a Halloween spin-off choral concert, on Saturday, Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, at California and Foothill.

The concert will be a presentation of the parts of the Mass from diverse  musical eras and disciplines, featuring works from the Middle Ages through 20th century, including Guillaume de Machaut’s 14th Century “Ite missa est” (the Mass is ended), possibly the first piece of its kind formally set to music. Other selections will be “Kyrie” from Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem; “Gloria” from “Missa Kenya” by Paul Basler (described as fusing Kenyan music with 20th century classical forms); “Credo” by Joseph Haydn; a Renaissance era “Sanctus” from “Mass for 3 Voices” by William Byrd composed in the time of Queen Elizabeth I; and the haunting “Agnus Dei” from Gabriel Fauré’s “Requiem” composed in the late 19th Century. There is also a prelude to the Mass, “Asperges me” by 16th Century Portuguese composer Filipe de Magalhãesa, typically sung during the Pascal season due to its themes of requesting cleansing and blessing.

SGVCC's Artistic Director is Ukranian-born conductor Dr. Alexandra Grabarchuk, who holds a doctorate from the UCLA Department of Musiciology. Sharing conducting and rehersals is Associate Advisor, Dr. David Rentz, an Associate Professor of Music at Chaffey College who has taught and conducted choral ensembles at such universities as Yale and the Claremont Colleges.

Pedestrian Safety Tips From Monrovia Police Department


Some pedestrian safety information the Monrovia Police Department would like you to know.

Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to improve your safety as a pedestrian and as a driver:

Do I always pay attention? As a walker, do I always stay on the alert for vehicles around me? As a driver, do I allow distractions to take attention from my primary responsibility of watching the road?

Do I assume too much? Do I think a crosswalk automatically protects me as a walker, or do I look all ways carefully and make eye contact with approaching drivers before crossing? When I’m driving, do I assume that a traffic signal will prevent pedestrians from crossing into my path?

Am I visible? As a pedestrian, am I careful to cross the street only where I’m visible to drivers, and to wear reflective clothing or use a flashlight when it’s dark? As a driver, do I use my headlights in bad weather, early morning and evening?

Do I look for signs of danger? As a walker, am I aware of busy and potentially dangerous intersections, and do I avoid those intersections if possible? As a driver, do I watch for children along the sidewalk and playgrounds, and do I slow down when children are present?

Do I know and obey traffic laws? As a walker, am I aware of busy and potentially dangerous intersections, and do I avoid those intersections if possible? As a driver, do I watch for children along the sidewalk and playgrounds, and do I slow down when children are present?

Do I know and obey traffic laws? As a walker, do I only cross streets at intersections and in marked crosswalks when possible? As a driver, am I aware that I must yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and at intersections?

Savy - A Pal for Your Dog


Do you think your dog is lonely during the day and might need a dog companion to cheer him up? Meet Savy! He loves other dogs. So much so that he participates in our Large Dog Play Group with other shelter dogs. He also was very well-behaved at our 21st Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk last weekend where he was surrounded by thousands of people and dogs. He’s a mellow fellow so when a dog would pass by he’d just look up in confirmation and go back to napping or having his belly rubbed. He also impressed his handler and showed he knows the words, “sit,” and “down.” He even knows “shake!” So come meet Savy today and give him a proper paw shake when you do.

 

The adoption fee for dogs is $140. Alldogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated before going to their new home.

 

New adopters will receive a complimentary health-and-wellness exam from VCA Animal Hospitals, as well as a goody bag filled with information about how to care for your pet.


View photos of adoptable pets at pasadenahumane.org. Adoption hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
