 Altadena deputies 
responded Wednesday 
morning around 9:50 a.m. to 
Jackson Elementary on west 
Woodbury Rd. regarding a call 
of a bomb threat. The school 
was immediately put on lock 

 According to police, an 
unknown male caller who 
telephoned a school employee 
and indicated he was going to 
blow up the school. According 
to the employee, the suspect’s 
voice sounded that of a male 
adult. The suspect did not 
say at what time in which the 
incident was to occur, nor 
provide any details regarding 
the description of the device. 
The suspect also did not 
provide any details regarding 
where the device was located 
police said.

 The deputies conducted a 
search of the school, along 
with the assistance of four (4) 
K-9 bomb detection units and 
school personnel who were 
familiar with the campus. No 
explosive devices or foreign 
unfamiliar devices were 
detected. Additionally, there 
was no known motives and 
there was no suspect identified.

 “The school has been checked 
by the police, Altadena 
Sheriff’s, and the ‘all clear’ 
has been given, so school 
has resumed its normal 
operations,” said PUSD 
spokeswoman Hilda Ramirez 
Horvath. “School personal 
are trained to manage 
emergencies and really keep 
children focused and calm 
during things like this. So 
children have resumed their 
school day as normal.”

Council to Hear Plan Review for New 
Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine

 The Pasadena City council 
will hear, Monday night, a 
predevelopment plan for a 
new four-story, 80,000 square-
foot Kaiser Permanente 
School of Medicine located 
on the southeast corner 
of Los Robles Avenue and 
Green Street. The new 
building would house a fully 
accredited medical school for 
future physicians of Kaiser. 

 According to the city staff 
report, the current 16,700 
square-foot commercial 
office building and a surface 
parking lot at 94 South Los 
Robles Avenue would be 
demolished to allow for the 
new school. Kaiser officials 
said the medical school will 
have a prospective student 
body of up to 192 students.

 The proposed project would 
provide 226 parking spaces 
in a three level subterranean 

 According to city staff “The 
project site is located within 
the City’s Transit-Oriented 
Development area. The 
projects site is approximately 
0.6 miles walking distance 
from both the Memorial 
Park and Del Mar Stations. 
Prospective students and 
faculty could benefit from 
the proximity of the project 
site to Gold Line stations.”

 The project was reviewed 
by the Design Commission 
last year. Some of the 
recommendations include, 
“closely studying the 
proposed landscaping to 
emphasize the importance 
and presence of courtyards 
and alleyways and the 
experience of pedestrians 
as they move through these 

 “Continue to carefully study 
the use and function of the 
open spaces and courtyards 
consider relocating uses 
such as gathering spaces 
and cafeterias to the ground 
floor level adjacent to these 
landscaped open spaces to 
further activate the street 
and better connect users 
to courtyards and the 
surrounding context.”

 “The modern contemporary 
architectural style is 
appealing and the concept 
should be further explored 
and better executed by 
refining the design to be more 
true to its design concept so 
as to be a truly innovative 
and unique contribution to 
the rich architectural history 
of Pasadena.”

 The commission also said 
that the service entrance shall 
not be located off of Green 
Street among other things.

 This is an information only 
item and the council will not 
take a vote.

 The council meets at 6:30 
p.m. in the Council Chamber, 
Pasadena City Hall, 100 
North Garfield Avenue, 
room S249.

City Oil Filter Exchange Event


 All Pasadena do-it-yourselfers 
are invited to safely recycle both 
their used oil and oil filters—
and get a new oil filter for free—
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, 
March 25, 2017 at O’Reilly Auto 
Parts, 919 N. Lake Ave. 

 This is the first of four such 
free oil filter exchange events 
currently being planned this 
year by the City’s Department of 
Public Works. The events are all 
planned for the last Saturday of 
each month beginning in March 
and repeating in April, May and 
June. Next month’s event is 
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, 
April 29, 2017 at AutoZone, 555 
N. Lake Ave.

 Just bring your used oil filter—
and used oil—and get a free 
new oil filter, limit two (2) per 
person. The oil filter exchange 
helps protect the environment 
by promoting proper recycling 
of used oil and oil filters. A 
list of participating certified 
oil and oil filter collection 
centers in Pasadena is online at 

 Used oil filters are recyclable 
because they are primarily made 
of steel. Used oil can be recycled 
to make other petroleum-based 
products such as asphalt and 
heating oil. In 2016, certified 
collection centers in Pasadena 
collected about 15,865 gallons 
of used oil that might otherwise 
had been improperly disposed 
of by do-it-yourselfers. The 
City each year also directly 
collects about 400 gallons of 
used oil from residential refuse 
customers who call for a pick 
up. If you want to schedule 
a used oil pick-up, contact 
the Pasadena Citizen Service 
Center at (626) 744-7311.

 Pasadena’s Oil Filter Exchange 
program is made possible by 
a grant from the California 
Department of Resources, 
Recycling and Recovery 

 The Pasadena Police 
Department will be 
conducting a Traffic 
Enforcement program on 
Monday throughout the 

 Officers will be deployed 
at various locations 
throughout the city to look 
for violations including, 
but not limited to, primary 
collision factors involving 
speed or red signals. When 
violations are observed, 
violators will cited and/
or educated on the safety 
concerns associated with 
the violation. The need 
for driver education and 
enforcement is constantly 
on the rise due to the 
increased volume of traffic 
within the city of Pasadena

 The Pasadena Police 
Department’s ultimate goal 
is to enforce and educate 
the driving public at the 
same time reducing serious 
injuries and fatal collisions

 Funding for these programs 
is provided by a grant from 
the California Office of 
Traffic Safety, through the 
National Highway Traffic 
Safety Administration.
