Thousands to Attend Americafest

Recognized as one of the 
country’s largest and longest 
running Fourth of July fireworks 
shows, the Rose Bowl will host 
its 92nd annual AmericaFest

a spectacular nighttime display 
of more than a ton of fireworks.

 Thousands of special effects 
fireworks will be launched from 
the stadium as part of the Rose 
Bowl daylong family-friendly 

 “As always, the Rose Bowl 
AmericaFest celebration will 
feature the largest fireworks 
display in the western United 
States, but this year’s show

will be the biggest and most 
exciting show in all of Southern 

 This year’s audience will see 
a special performance by the

Jackson tribute artist, Michael 
Knight. Knight’s years of 
meticulous focus and study of 
every Michael Jackson nuance

tribute is to his childhood 
hero. Knight sings every lyric,

 City officials form the 
Pasadena Water and Power 
said that as part of routine 
adjustments to the city’s 
water supply, that involved 
calibrating disinfectants, as 
part of balancing imported 
and local water supplies, 
water could be discolored. 

 Officials said that running 
the faucet for five to 10 
seconds would flush out any 
discoloration. They said the 
water is safe and exceeds 
drinking water standards set 
by the Federal EPA and state 

 According to city records, 
about 41 percent of the water 
supply is groundwater from 
the Raymond Groundwater 
Basin and is pumped out of 16 
deep wells located throughout 
Pasadena, 58 percent of the 
water is imported from the 
Metropolitan Water District 
of Southern California 
(MWD) and consists of a 
blend of water from Northern 
California and the Colorado 
River. The remaining one 
percent is purchased from 
neighboring water agencies.

Transit to 
Start Sunday 

 Service changes affecting 
most Pasadena Transit 
routes will go into effect on 
July 1, 2018.

 Specific changes include:

 Sunday service will operate 
from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 
on Routes 10, 20, 31/32, 40 
& 5

 Weekday service is being 
added on Route 20 from 1:00 
p.m. to 5:00 p.m., with a bus 
operating about every 18 

 Minor schedule adjustments 
are being made on Routes 
10, 20, 31/32, 40 & 51/52

 After 10 years, Sunday 
service is returning to 
Pasadena Transit as part of a 
three-year, $772,507 Federal 
Transit Administration, Job 
Access Reverse Commute 
grant. This new Sunday 
service will help close a 
mobility gap in this popular 
local service on Routes 
10, 20, 31/32, 40 and 51. 
Also, additional service 
will be provided during 
the weekdays on the very 
popular Route 20; the added 
service is funded by Measure 
M funds. Measure M was 
passed in November 2016 
and is a half-cent sales tax to 
fund transportation project 
in Los Angeles County in 

 Riders on most routes will 
notice schedule adjustments 
to improve on-time arrival 
performance. Adjustments 
were based on customer and 
driver feedback and analysis 
of actual route travel times. 
Many of the scheduled “stop 
times” on this route have 
been shifted—in some cases 
by several minutes—so all 
riders are advised to check 
updated schedules on the 
City’s website.

these service changes, please

This month, Assemblymember 
Chris Holden recognize the 
important role nonprofits 
play in the state. Holden said 
for over 100 years, nonprofit 
organizations have been at the 
forefront of important social 
movements including women’s 
suffrage, the free speech 
and black liberation of the 
1960’s, and the need for better 
environmental protections 
across the country. Today, 
nonprofits include world-class 
hospitals and universities, arts 
and cultural organizations that 
manage meaningful programs 
for children and families, and 
outdoor-focused groups that 
share a special appreciation for 
our parks and beaches.

 There are currently over 80,000 
nonprofits that help drive our 
economy, lead innovation, 
and champion hope and 
opportunity in California.

 In commemoration of non-
profit month, he recognized 
Pasadena’s Flintridge Center 
from the 41st Assembly District. 
Established in 1986, the 
Flintridge Center works with 
formerly incarcerated adults 
and at risk youth to break the 
cycle of poverty and violence 
so they can find pathways to 
employment. Working with a 
network of service providers 
and public agencies to change 
lives and create healthy and 
safe communities, I believe 
Flintridge Center’s successful 
reintegration services should 
be modeled throughout the
