Sierra Madre Art Fair


The Sierra Madre City Council and community members 
welcomed new Interim Police Chief Jim Hunt at 
their Tuesday meeting in Council Chambers. Chief 
Hunt will follow recently departed Chief Joe Ortiz 
who is now serving as Chief of the South Pasadena 
Police Department. 

“Welcome to the team and welcome to the family,” 
commented Mayor John Harabedian at the meeting. 

Chief Hunt spent his entire 26-year law enforcement 
career with the City of Monrovia where he rose 
through the ranks and eventually retired as the Chief 
Police in 2017. 

A strong proponent of law enforcement and community 
partnerships his department was recognized 
multiple times by state and international organizations for their community policing programs under 
Chief Hunt’s leadership. 

“It is truly an honor to serve this community,” commented Chief Hunt, further expressing his emphasis 
on community and inclusiveness. Photo by S. Henderson/MVNews


As part of the 2018-19 Street Improvement Project Sierra Madre Public Works has contracted with 
Gentry Brothers INC. (GBI) for the installation of transmission lines. The project is scheduled to 
conclude on June 9th. Overnight parking tickets will be waved in construction areas. The following 
streets will be effected; 


As a part of its ongoing commitment 
to modernize the sport of 
horse racing and to promote the 
health and safety of the equine 
athletes to the highest possible 
standards, The Stronach Group 
has invested $500,000 to support 
the purchase of the cutting-edge 
Longmile Positron Emission Tomography 
(MILE-PET) Scan 
machine that provides imaging 
of the fetlock (ankle) joint while 
a Thor-oughbred is standing. 
This machine will be available at 
Santa Anita Park at the Southern 
California Eq-uine Foundation’s 
Equine Hospital in Santa Anita’s 
Barn area.

 “The Stronach Group’s funding 
of this ground-breaking technology 
represents an important 
investment that will aid in the detection 
of equine injuries on a microscopic 
level to flag pre-existing 
condi-tions that can contribute 
to breakdowns,” said Dr. Dionne 
Benson, recently appointed Chief 
Veterinary Officer for The Stronach 
Group. “This technology will 
help to identify the injuries that 
tend to be the most dangerous 
and are not detectable using the 
current technology.” 

 While the PET scan technology 
has been used in human medicine 
for more than a decade, it is 
very rare for horses to undergo a 
PET scan. 

 In an effort to increase and 
improve access to this technology 
for horsemen, The Stronach 
Group has partnered with the 
Dolly Green Research Foundation 
(DRGF) to secure the purchase 
of the innovative MILE-
PET Scan machine. DGRF, 
founded in 1984 by Ms. Green, a 
longtime horse owner with a special 
interest in equine research, is 
affiliated with the Southern California 
Equine Foundation. 

 “The Stronach Group is committed 
to providing horse owners 
and trainers with access to 
state-of-the-art technology that 
will make a significant difference 
to the health and safety of 
our horses and riders,” said Belinda 
Stronach, Chairman and 
President. “Our goal is to make 
every resource available to aid 
horsemen in determining the 
fitness of their horses for racing 
and training. We’re excited to be 
partnering with the Dolly Green 
Research Foundation and UC 
Davis to bring the MILE-PET to 
the eq-uine hospital, located right 
here at Santa Anita.”

 “PET devices promise the sort 
of breakthrough we have been 
looking for in detecting and under-
standing pre-existing bone 
injury,” said Craig Fravel, President 
of the Dolly Green Research 

 “This is the most exciting development 
in equine imaging 
since standing MRI in the early 
2000,” said Dr. Mathieu Spieret, 
an Associate Professor at UC Davis 
who has been the Principle 
Investigator for the project. “The 
development of the standing 
equine PET scanner will change 
the diagnostic ap-proach to fetlock 
remodeling in racehorses, 
and too many other areas of 
equine imaging.”

 “You cannot overstate how 
significant an advancement this 
is in equine diagnostic imaging 
and it is a natural fit here in 
California,” said Dr. Rick Arthur, 
Equine Medical Director for the 
California Horse Racing Board. 
“PET is an advanced nuclear imaging 
technique and Santa Anita 
is already the home of the Dolly 
Green Nuclear Scintigraphy facility, 
which was the first of its kind 
when it was installed.
