Foothills Sentry Roosters

crow at the Friendly Center

These roosters are not the

barnyard show-offs who spe- cialize in disturbing one’s early- morning sleep. They are a group of 100 professional men with diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to raise funds to sup- port disadvantaged and at-risk children in Orange County. The Roosters have supported

Forty veterans representing most of the U.S. 20th-century wars were on hand to witness Fred Whitaker, Sr., U.S. Army, Ret., (right) receive a Certificate of Recognition for “outstanding service to our country” from Chairman of the OC Board of Supervisors Todd Spitzer (left). The presentation was made at the June meeting of Orange Republi- can Women, Federated (ORWF) at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim with approximately 90 in attendance. ORWF President Carol Bowen (cen- ter) officiated at the event, held in keeping with our nation’s marking of the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. A resident of Villa Park, Whitaker earned the Distinguished Unit Citation, Combat Infantry Badge, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Good Conduct, European Theater with four battle stars, and a WWII Victory Medal.

Orange city council okays alcohol sales at theater

The Century Theater at 1701

West Katella has received ap- proval to sell beer and wine to moviegoers at its 5,267-seat com- plex. Sales will be strictly monitored

at a single concession serving all theaters in the complex. ID’s will be checked by trained staff and customers limited to two pur- chases per visit. The Orange Police Department

opposed alcohol sales at the the- ater citing eight other licensed sellers within 600 feet of Century and an existing area crime rate that is largely alcohol related. Century’s request had drawn a 2-2 vote from the planning com- mission last March. Considering

the tie vote neither a denial nor approval, Century appealed to the city council. After a discussion of the the-

ater’s stringent monitoring plan and the success of the concept in other areas, the city council voted 4-1 to approve it. Councilman Mike Alvarez was the dissenting vote, noting that he didn’t like mixing alcohol with teenagers and would err on the conserva- tive side. The AMC Theaters at 20 City

Boulevard West has been selling beer and wine since 2011. Cus- tomers there must purchase and consume beverages in the same location, rather than take them to their seats in the movie theater

the Friendly Center in Orange for more than 10 years, with funds from their “Monte Carlo Nights” donated to the center’s after- school tutoring program. During the 2008 financial downturn, the Friendly Center saw increased need but decreased donations. The Roosters came to the rescue with a check for $10,000. Each year thereafter, the center has received a grant from the Roost- ers, which, in 2012, amounted to $50,000. Over the years, the Roosters have collectively do- nated

$180,000, which has

enabled the Friendly Center to expand from one tutoring site to six, now serving more than 500 students.
