Players Inducted into the 
Rose Bowl Hall of Fame

Two People Shot at 
the Rose Bowl, One 

 Police are asking for 
the public’s help after an 
18-year-old young man 
died during a shooting in 
the Rose Bowl parking lot 
late Saturday night that 
also left a 51-year-old man 

 Pasadena police officers 
said they received a “shots 
fired” call in the area of 
Arroyo Blvd and Seco St. 
shortly before 11:30 p.m. 
They said Kamryn Stone 
from Los Angeles was 
rushed to a nearby hospital 
but later died. Another, 
unidentified man from 
Los Angeles was also taken 
to the hospital in stable 

 Investigators said they do 
not think the shooting was 
random but also believe 
Stone was “in the wrong 
place at the wrong time.”

 Stone’s father said his 
son was on his first day 
cleaning the parking 
lot working Cynthia’s 
Cleaning Company. He 
was also a student at West 
LA College. 

 According to Pasadena 
Public Information 
Officer Lisa Derderian, 
the shooting took place 
about three hours after the 
University of Oklahoma 
played the UCLA Bruins.

 Police did not release a 
description of the suspects. 
The shooting remains 
under investigation.

 Anyone with information 
xhould call police at (626)-
744-4241 or anonymously 
at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).

 The Tournament of Roses 
announced Tuesday that 
Harvard graduate and College 
Football Hall of Fame inductee 
Eddie Casey, former Ohio 
State quarterback and three-
time Rose Bowl Game starter 
Cornelius Greene, former USC 
quarterback and Heisman 
Trophy-winner Matt Leinart 
and former University of 
Washington running back 
and Rose Bowl MVP Jacque 
Robinson will be inducted into 
the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame as 
the Class of 2019.

 The Rose Bowl Hall of Fame 
Induction Ceremony will take 
place at the Lot K Tent on 
December 31, 2019, outside 
of the Rose Bowl Stadium, 
one day prior to the kickoff 
of the 106th Rose Bowl Game 
presented by Northwestern 
Mutual. This year’s game will be 
a traditional Rose Bowl Game, 
with a team from the Big Ten 
meeting a team from the Pac-
12 on Wednesday, January 1.

 The Rose Bowl Hall of Fame 
was established in 1989 to 
pay tribute to members of the 
Rose Bowl Game who have 
contributed to the history and 
excitement of the game, and 
those who embody the highest 
level of passion, strength, 
tradition and honor associated 
with The Granddaddy of Them 

 Eddie Casey may have been 
small in stature but played 
football larger than life. The 
155-pound halfback and 
defensive back had remarkable 
quickness and agility that made 
him an outstanding player on 
both offense and defense. Casey 
started as a freshman in 1916, 
then served in the Navy during 
World War I. After returning 
to Harvard in 1919, Casey led 
the Crimson to an undefeated 
9-0-1 record, including a 7-6 
victory over Oregon in 1920 
Rose Bowl Game.

 Cornelius Greene is in a small 
fraternity of football players 
who played in four Rose Bowl 
Games. Greene played for Ohio 
State in the 1973 Rose Bowl 
Game, then started in the 1974, 
1975 and 1976 games. In the 
1974 game, Greene was named 
MVP in a 42-21 victory over 

 Matt Leinart was one of the 
most celebrated quarterbacks 
of the last 20 years of college 
football. The USC signal caller 
led the Trojans to a pair of Rose 
Bowl Games, including a 28-14 
victory over Michigan in the 
2004 Granddaddy of Them All. 
In the win, Leinart won MVP 
by throwing three touchdowns 
and running for another. In 
his second Rose Bowl Game, 
Leinart completed 73-percent 
of his passes and threw a 
touchdown pass, but the 
Trojans lost to Texas in the 2006 
BCS National Championship, 

 Jacque Robinson was the 
spark that led the University of 
Washington to a 28-0 victory 
over Iowa in the 1982 Rose 
Bowl Game. Robinson became 
the first freshman to be named 
MVP in the Rose Bowl Game 
after he racked up 142 yards 
rushing on 20 carries and 
scored a pair of touchdowns. 
The Husky running back started 
the scoring with a one-yard 
touchdown run in the second 
quarter. He then broke the game 
open in the fourth quarter with 
a 34-yard touchdown scamper 
that gave Washington a 21-0 
lead. Robinson went on to win 
Orange Bowl MVP honors in 
1985, one of just four players to 
win MVP in both the Orange 
Bowl and Rose Bowl Game.

 With the addition of this 
year’s class, the Rose Bowl 
Hall of Fame includes 133 
inductees over its 31-year 
history. Inductees are honored 
with a permanent plaque that 
includes their name and year 
of induction at The Court of 
Champions at the Rose Bowl 

Bills to Eliminate 710 Tunnel Await Governor

A pair of bills passed in 
Sacramento look to end any 710 
tunnel plans and make it easier 
for nonprofit tenants to buy 
Caltrans-owned properties. 

 First, Senator Anthony 
Portantino announced last 
week that SB 7 has passed the 
California State Legislature and 
is now at the Governor’s desk. 
The bill follows through on a 
promise that the Portantino 
made to the activists, non-
profits, and tenants in the 
710 corridor when he helped 
negotiate the end of the 710 

 Portantino said that in the 
final hours of the negotiations 
with the Administration, 
the proposed bill language 
included a provision that would 
dramatically interfere with 
the city of Pasadena’s plans to 
develop the left over freeway 

 In addition to ending the 
tunnel, SB 7 helps the non-profit 
tenants in the 710 corridor 
purchase their properties in 
a fiscally prudent manner; 
something long sought by the 
Pasadena Ronald McDonald 
House, Arlington Gardens, 
Cottage Co-op Nursery and 
Sequoyah School. 

 “It will be a new day in Pasadena 
when the 710 freeway is history. 
SB 7 ensures that outcome and 
helps all of us turn our attention 
to solving local traffic needs, 
raising the funding necessary 
to purchase the non-profit 
properties, and brings some 
relief to tenants in Caltrans’ 
affordable rent program,” said 
Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek.

 Second, Assemblymember 
Chris Holden’s legislation 
would also eliminate any future 
possibility for the 710 tunnel, 
Assembly Bill 29, also passed 
the state legislature Monday 
after votes in both the Senate 
and Assembly Floors. The bill 
also awaits Governor Newsom’s 

 “We’re just one step away 
from burying the tunnel 
idea for good,” said Holden 
(pictured above). “The concept 
of changing the Highway 
Code came directly from the 
community and I’m looking 
forward to seeing this through 
till the end.”

 Assembly Bill 29 specifies that 
State Route 710 is from Route 
1 to Route 10, abolishing the 
freeway tunnel. The legislation 
will close loopholes in both 
Caltrans’ Final Environmental 
Impact Report and the 2017 
Los Angeles Metro motion that 
drops the tunnel concept for 
strictly financial reasons.
