Page 2 The CATAUNA ISLANDER Friday, November 6, 2009 A Redlands woman died here Sunday, Nov. 1. The cause of her death has not been determined. The woman has been identified as Mona Towle, 56. She was taking an advanced open water certificate course Sunday. She and her diving instructor were going toward the surface when Towle, then about 50 feet under water, suddenly began a rapid ascent. When she reached the st/r- face, the instructor called for help. A bystander dialed 911. The Avalon Harbor Depart- ment, Avalon Fire Department, Los Angeles County Fire Department, Baywatch Avalon and the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department responded. The Avalon Harbor Patrol helped pull Towle onto a patrol boat. Towle was now unconscious. The Harbor Patrol met Bay watch Avalon onthe rescue dock. Towle was taken by rescue boat to the University of Southern California Hyperbaric Chamber in Two Harbors. Medical personnel were unable to revive Towle. The LA Sheriffs Department Emer- gency Services Division and the Los Angeles County Coroner's Dep- artment are investigating further. 101 Madlh #6 Avalon CalHomia 80704 (310) 510-0500 Fax: (310) 510.2882 Dan Teckenoff, Publhher Dennis Kaiser, Editor Alison Ca er, AccountJn#, Angela Teckenoff, office Goddess Michelle Manion, Editorial Design Doug Oudin Staff Writer~Two Harbors The Catalina Islander Volume: 97 issue: 45 Issue Date: November 6, 2009 (USPS 093.140) Acceptance under 39C, F.R. 3464 Periodicals postage paid at Avalon, CA 90704 and other additional offices.

Dis publicaUo~l Proud Member of the CALIFORNIA NEWSPAPR PUBUSHERS ASSO~ATION Veteran's Day November 11 A-man was seen peep- ing through the window of an Islander's home Sunday, Oct. 25. Sheriff's deputies respond- ing to the call found a suspect in the Islander's yard. The suspect, Gerardo Garcia, has been previ- ously identified as a suspect in acts of peeping and indecent exposure over a two-year period. Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies conducting a foot patrol early Sunday morning found Garcia standing within the fenced -'in property of the victim. He had reportedly been seen peering into a window of the victim's resi- dence while exposing himself and masturbating. Deputies had pre ciously identified Garcia as a suspect in crimes, but no arrest was possible at the time due to the victim being unable to provide a positive iden- tification of the offender. Anyone with information about the case should contact the Avalon Sheriff's Station. Seeking "the write stuff?
