We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don't have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Project Scheduled to Begin Monday, May 9

PASADENA, Calif.—Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) is committed to providing reliable and high-quality water service to the community. To advance this goal, a major water infrastructure project is scheduled to begin Monday, May 9, along Arroyo Parkway. The project will replace the existing over 90-year-old, 8-inch water main to increase the reliability and quality of water service. Construction work will span from Glenarm Street to Cordova Street, and is expected to be completed in June 2023.

“This much-needed capital investment project will help to ensure PWP maintains overall reliability and quality of water service that customers expect and deserve,” said Interim General Manager Jeffrey Kightlinger. “PWP is a community-owned, not-for-profit utility and reinvests revenue generated to provide vital services and infrastructure improvements to serve our customers. Projects like this help ensure the long-term health and safety of our water and community.”

During the project, residents and businesses located between Glenarm Street and Cordova Street may be impacted. Construction work will be contained to approximately one block at a time between Glenarm and Cordova Streets to help minimize any impacts.

Construction will intermittently affect water service. Notices of any water interruptions will be given at least 48 hours in advance. Efforts will be taken to keep such inconveniences to a minimum.

Work will occur Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Crews will use a variety of heavy equipment including excavators, backhoes, loaders, and construction trucks, which may cause additional noise and dust in the area. Signs and delineators will be used to minimize the impact of traffic flow along Arroyo Parkway. At least one driving lane will be accessible in both directions, and access to driveways will be provided. Please observe and adhere to posted no parking zones, construction signs, and traffic flaggers.

For more information, call PWP Water Distribution at (626) 744-4456 or visit the project website, www.PWPweb.com/ArroyoParkwayProject. The website will be updated regularly as the project progresses.

This year will be as close to normal as you’ve seen since Mother’s Day 2019. You’ll be sitting in a restaurant with Mom and the wife or the hubby or the partner, and the kids or no kids, and you’ll all be together, dining and celebrating.

It’s going to feel like a fond memory come true, so why not make it special?

This year, of course, there are any number of great restaurants to visit for Mother’s Day in Pasadena, but we’ve expanded the circle a bit this time to include some restaurants close by, as well as some not so much.

You can tell mom you’re “going out of town.”

First, let’s talk about The Raymond 1886. Their Mother’s Day Brunch includes blueberry and pistachio pancakes, eggs your way, eggs benedict, breakfast burrito, chilaquiles, breakfast sandwich, Mediterranean frittata veggie hash, avocado toast, smoked salmon toast, and much more.

It’s not exactly the beach, but the beach is close by. Georgia’s Restaurant at the Long Beach Exchange will be celebrating Mother’s Day with savories such as the fried egg sandwich, with choice of cooked egg, mayonnaise and bacon, the sausage, bacon, and eggs served with blackened country potatoes and toast, or co-owner Nika Shoemaker-Machado’s personal favorite, steak and eggs, featuring top sirloin steak and a side of blackened country potatoes.

There is grilled french toast topped with powdered sugar and strawberries, a cinnamon apple waffle topped with warm sautéed apples in a cinnamon syrup, and a dollop of whipped cream.

Mom can also have both sweet and savory with the chicken and waffles, which stars Georgia’s signature fried chicken, a process that begins with Co-Owner Marlon Machado’s Brazilian buttermilk brine and ends with a seasoned crispy cornmeal crust courtesy of Nana Gretchen’s very own grandmother, served on a Belgian waffle with creamy honey butter, and maple syrup.

Soul-delicious Southern staples also include the fish and grits featuring Creole seasoned cornmeal-crusted fried catfish, or the classic Shrimp and Grits made with Creole seasoned shrimp over a bed of savory grits.

There is the vegetarian-friendly Mardi Gras Omelet, featuring green and red bell peppers, onions, and cheese, or indulge in Georgia’s new Eggs Benedict. It’s the weekend, so spoil Mom with some soulfulSides such as the healthy and hearty Oatmeal, quintessential Southern Grits with the cheesy option, or the blackened country potatoes.. For a lighter bite, Mom can opt for a light and refreshing Fruit Bowl.

Georgia’s Restaurant also features mimosas, a Signature Peach and Seasonal Sangria, red and white wine by the glass or the bottle, and craft bottled Beer to complement each dish. And of course, the Bloody Mary might make a perfect Mother’s Day treat.

Georgia’s Restaurant at the Long Beach Exchange will be open for Mother’s Day Brunch, Sunday, May 8, 2022, from 9 am to 2 pm; 4104 McGowen Street, Suite 155, Long Beach, CA 92630. (562)420-5637.www.Georgias-Restaurant.com

The Restoration Committee of the South Pasadena Friends of the Library will be presenting the next Restoration Concert on Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. featuring our quartet-in-residence, The New Hollywood String Quartet with guest pianist, Bernadene Blaha. The program will be the Franck Piano Quintet in F minor and the Haydn op. 76 no. 4 string quartet (“The Sunrise”).

Tickets at the door are $20. The concert is being held at the Library Community Room at 1115 El Centro St. in South Pasadena. Mask wearing is optional but strongly recommended.

The New Hollywood String Quartet had its debut concert in Los Angeles on Jan. 9, 2001 and has been performing to critical acclaim ever since. Inspired by the great Hollywood String Quartet from over half a century ago, the current members of the NHSQ are likewise premiere performers of their generation. Individually, and together as one of the top string quartets in Southern California, they are well known guests at many of the most prestigious concert series in Los Angeles and its environs.

Its members reside in Los Angeles and have recorded hundreds of film scores, are members of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and have decades of chamber music experience between them. Quartet Members are Tereza Stanislav – violin, Rafael Rishik – violin, Robert Brophy – viola and Andrew Shulman – cello.

Dividing her time among chamber, solo, orchestral, and recording projects, Tereza Stanislav has been hailed for her “expressive beauty and wonderful intensity” (Robert Mann) of her playing, her “sure technique and musical intelligence” (Calgary Herald), and “her sweet tone, brilliant phrasing, uncannily pointed rhythm and pure intonation (even at the violin’s highest and lowest extremities)” (Huffington Post).

Rafael Rishik was born in New York City and started the violin at age 4. At age six he was one of the youngest students ever accepted to the Juilliard School of Music. “Compelling Artistry…” is how the Jerusalem Post described Mr. Rishik’s violin playing. He spent several years performing with the Camerata Pacifica and is a founding member of the New Hollywood String Quartet.

Robert Brophy can be seen and heard playing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, LA Opera and many West Coast chamber music series. He is featured with Nigel Kennedy in a quartet for Kennedy’s new release Greatest Hits on the EMI label and has performed alongside Martha Argerich, Mischa Maisky, Michel Dalberto and Dmitri Sitkovetsky. Robert has been a member of the New Hollywood String Quartet for the last 6 years.

Andrew Shulman, principal cello with LACO and faculty at USC, was the first British winner of the Piatigorsky Award and was made an Honorary RCM by The Queen Mother. He has performed concertos with the Philharmonia, ASMF, CBSO, BBC Scottish, Utah and Singapore Symphonies, and Los Angeles and Royal Liverpool Philharmonics. As conductor, Andrew has performed in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia.

Bernadene Blaha’s “brilliant command of the piano,” whether featured as recitalist, concerto soloist or chamber musician, has been heralded in performances throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Mexico. Piano and Keyboard magazine has reviewed her as, “a pianist of integrity, with lovely sonorities and total clarity of line.” Ms. Blaha is a founding member of the piano trio Latitude 41, formed in 2009 with violinist Livia Sohn and cellist Luigi Piovano.

The Restoration Concerts Committee, a committee of the non-profit organization, The Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, has a goal to bring world-class music at an affordable price to the concertgoers in South Pasadena and surrounding communities. As our name suggests, net proceeds from the concerts provide for restorations, enhancements and other benefits to the South Pasadena Library and Community Room.

PASADENA, Calif.—Pasadena Public Health Department (PPHD) is announcing the winners of the innovative #VaccinatePasadena Video Contest during a ceremony at Day One, 175 N. Euclid Ave., on Thursday, April 28, at 5:30 p.m.

The #VaccinatePasadena Video Contest, launched this past February, gave Pasadena students ages 4-24 (grades TK-college) the opportunity to submit artwork or share a short video on TikTok or Instagram with a powerful and positive COVID-19 vaccine message. PPHD used print and digital media ads in English and Spanish to promote the contest. Social media ads alone generated over 900,000 impressions.

Thirty-seven students from 20 different schools across Pasadena entered the contest to educate their peers about the benefits of choosing vaccination. They also countered misinformation and myths that have prevented some from protecting themselves and their families with vaccination.

Students competed in different grade categories—elementary school, middle school, high school and college—for a chance to win gift cards ranging from $75 to $1,500 for their team and school. Awards were funded by a grant through L.A. Care Health Plan.

“COVID-19 has dramatically impacted kids and young adults on a personal level. The #VaccinatePasadena Video Contest gave students a creative way to share with peers and others in the community how vaccination has renewed their sense of hope and optimism for the future,” says Dr. Ying-Ying Goh, Pasadena Public Health Department director and health officer. “We can’t wait to showcase the winners and share their entries.”

After the awards ceremony, the winning entries will be posted to the City’s #VaccinatePasadena Video Contest webpage and shared on the City’s social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

In Pasadena, children and some young adults lag behind other age groups in vaccination rates. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone age 5 and older get vaccinated against COVID-19, and everyone age 12 and older get a vaccine booster.

After more than two years away, Pasadena City College’s Robinson Stadium is hopping again this week. Graduates will gather with their families for PCC’s 97th Commencement Ceremony, that rite of passage by which the college grants associate degrees and certificates of achievement to students who have completed their studies.

This year, PCC will issue 2,909 awards, including almost 2,600 associate degrees. The college will graduate 1,786 students this May.

“Every PCC graduate has had to put in some hard work to reach this goal, but the efforts in this year’s class are truly without comparison,” said Erika Endrijonas, superintendent/president of Pasadena City College. “These graduates have done the majority of their studies under the shadow of an unprecedented public health emergency, which means they’ve had to make countless adaptations along the way.

“All of us at PCC are in awe at the achievements of these graduates,” she added. “Their presence here tonight is nothing short of inspiring.”

The graduating class is among the most diverse in PCC’s history. Forty-four percent of graduates identify as Latinx, and another 31 percent are of Asian descent. Black students make up three percent of the graduating class. More than three quarters of the class earned a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.

The diversity extends beyond our nation’s borders. Thirty-one countries are represented in the graduating class, and 144 graduates are less than 17 years old. The oldest graduate is 74 years of age.

Among the students celebrating their achievements this May are:

PCC’s Commencement ceremony begins at 7 p.m. in Robinson Stadium at the Colorado Boulevard campus. For more information visit pasadena.edu/commencement.
