by my experience as a long-time vices such as police, fire, paramedics, library, public works, and 
Sierra Madre resident. 
Having grown up in Sierra 
Madre, I have a few vivid 
memories about my childhood. 
One is always feeling 

safe within the City’s confines. There was not a day in my life 
in which I felt vulnerable while riding my bike with friends, 
playing in Sierra Vista Park, or walking home from school. 
The second memory is playing baseball at Heasley and Dapper 
fields for hours on end. My weekends were consumed 
by playing sports, and the most enjoyable of those times was 
always spent on those fields. The third is having a library 
right down the street from my house, where I knew the librarians 
by first name and would be consumed for hours in 
a vast array of books, magazines, and computer games. 

I would say that my experience was typical of my friends 
in Sierra Madre and is shared by most children growing up 
here today. But what I took for granted then, and appreciate 
now, is what made that idyllic experience possible. 

I never realized that knowing police officers and firefighters 
by their first name, or continuously seeing those officers and 
firefighters around town, was a unique privilege not shared 
by most individuals in surrounding communities. I have no 
doubt that my constant feeling of safety resulted from Sierra 
Madre having its own police and fire departments, both of 
whose presence were and still are constantly felt throughout 
town. I also never realized that being able to play on 
a pristine baseball field in the City in which I lived was an 
experience that kids in many other communities did not 
enjoy, and was made possible only through Sierra Madre’s 
concerted devotion to providing various community services 
for our youth. I also never realized that having a fully 
operational library down the street with staff members who 
lived in town was a unique thing. Only when I grew older 
did I realize that community libraries, like the one in Sierra
