East Pasadena is ground-breaking for a new theater

It looks like East Pasadena is getting a new theater, according to a story in the Pasadena Star News today the theater is moving from Glendale and will be located next to the Metro Gold Line station at Sierra Madre.

The company plans to keep its award-winning production mix, Elliott said: classic drama, including Shakespeare and Moliere, interspersed with such modern masters as Ibsen, Shaw and Tennessee Williams, and some lighter fare – their recent production of the knock-about comedy “Noises Off” won rave reviews.

“A Noise Within” company, will break ground on its new $13-million, 35,000 square-foot theater at the historic Stuart Pharmaceutical complex in April. The theater company has been based in Glendale for 18 years, and the new building will provide its first permanent, custom-designed home. (Photo courtesy John Berry Architects)

Contribute to the Cultural Development of Pasadena
A Noise Within’s new home is located in Pasadena and is easily accessible to all. Just steps from the Metro Gold Line Sierra Madre station and conveniently located off of the 210 Freeway’s Madre Street exit, the facility is located at the corner of Foothill Blvd. and Sierra Madre Blvd.

Nestled in the San Gabriel Mountains, A Noise Within will be located minutes from Old Town Pasadena, San Marino, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Altadena, South Pasadena and Alhambra. Adjacent to the new location is a walkway to the Sierra Madre Gold Line station, part of the L.A. Metro light rail system. The Metro rail station’s garage will provide secure parking for patrons.

Here’s the website for the theater group

Suzie Oreman – advice for 2-28-2010

Financial faults
in our
an tremors we could find ourselves like 2008.
Only we can save ourselves.
Financial foundations cannot have any cracks

– debt on credit card, 30% interest fees, etc… – join a credit union- cannot charge more than 18%
– 401k – invest in the plan only up to the point where the employer matches
– have a roth IRA – invest where you have already paid taxes – lowest income tax bracket of our lifetime, pay the taxes, you can take the money
– get a tradtional ira and convert to a roth later.

Dangerous Intersections in Pasadena, CA

Many residents in Pasadena wonder where the most dangerous intersections in Pasadena are located.

From having lived in Pasadena for over a decade and in the valley for my entire life and frequenting the Pasadena area I can tell you that one of the top most dangerous intersections is where Hill which travels North and South intersects with Orange Grove, Washington, 210 freeway on and off ramps, Colorado blvd.

I live near the Hill and Orange Grove intersection and on a pretty regular basis there will be an accident where a car tries to beat a changing light or is traveling way too fast south on Hill. There are countless sightings of cars traveling way over the 40mph speed limit. The limit which is already too high for this type of neighborhood. and traffic is only getting worse, not better.

At the 210 and Hill, you can sit there and watch cars racing to get on the freeway or off, and running lights. You rarely will see a police officer watching this intersection, not sure why, but the city could surely use the money and they would make a ton of it at this intersection from citations.

The amount of people running lights in Pasadena seems very high, not that it is much better in other cities, but part of the Police going out into the community should be to listen to residents and hearing complaints and recommendations about what can be improved.

Couple ideas for the city of Pasadena:
Put a couple officers at busy intersections like those at the 210 and Hill and Lake and watch cars run lights and drivers on the phone holding their phone to their ear, and not making emergency calls.
