There has been some headline grabbing stories about Hawaiian Gardens within the past few months. It has been labeled as the home of the Vario Gang that literally terrorized the citizens of this small urban community for years. It has also been labeled has having one of the highest per capita crimes rates in the country. What hasn’t been said the Vario Gang can no longer threaten the good citizens in Hawaiian Gardens and the city now has one of the lowest crime rates in the county. On Nov. 19, the Hawaiian Gardens Neighborhood Watch held its second annual Thanksgiving Dinner in the C. Robert Lee Community Center. Approximately 150-200 members and their neighbors attended. Sheriff Detective Ernest Billy gave Olympics a slide presentation that showed a continuous drop in the city’s

rate

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department UCR Report, The Part I crime rate in Hawaiian Gardens is 207.0 per 10,000 people. In comparison, the FBI reported the Part I crime rate for California at 522.6 per 100,000 people in 2007, and 503.8 per 100,000 people in 2008. (FBI, UCR Report 2009) From 2006 to 2009, the gang crime in Hawaiian Gardens has fallen 58%. Detective Billy said the severe drop in gang crime, as well as all crime in general, can be attributed to the residents in Hawaiian Gardens who have taken a stand against crime. Most residents also attribute the crime rate decrease to the gang injunction order currently in place. Mayor Mike Gomez agrees. “Hawaiian Gardens Citizens no longer will tolerate putting their children’s safety in jeopardy. They want to live without fear and get on with their lives. The Mayor said they now

Castaneda Carries Norwalk Into Whittier Christian Tournament Semifinals By Loren Kopff LA HABRA-Valley Christian boys basketball head coach Bryan Branderhorst and his staff has seen enough of Norwalk and its prized star, senior Anthony Holliday over the past few years. So, when the Lancers were opening the 4th Annual Leon Davis Holiday Classic last Saturday morning at Whittier Christian, the Crusaders were scouting Norwalk just in case they were to meet in the second round. Indeed the two teams met this past Monday and the Crusaders limited Holliday to just 14 points. But, it was senior Manuel Castaneda who did most of the damage, scoring a career-high 30 points, pulling down six rebounds and thieving the ball three times as the Lancers held off the Crusaders 64-58. The 30-point performance comes on the heels of a 21-point game against Pacifica in the tournament opener. “We’ve played them so many times [in the spring and summer], so we know what they’re going to do and they know what we’re going to do and they know we have Anthony,” said Norwalk head coach Jim Webster. “But we’ve been looking for Manuel to make things happen. He’s kind of the missing link. He and [junior] Cammie [Lewis] have to score; you want them in double figures because if someone is double teaming Anthony, they can be finishers.” Against Pacifica, Holliday began the game by sinking three straight three-pointers in the opening quarter en route to a game-high 21 points. But it was a different story against V.C. where he shot four of 10 from the field in the first half and did not have a three-pointer in the game. In fact, he attempted just three outside shots against the Crusaders. Meanwhile,

Castaneda did most of his work inside with help from Lewis [six assists] and senior Jeffrey Montoya [five assists]. Castaneda scored half a dozen points in the first quarter, which ended in a 9-2 Norwalk run over the final four minutes. He then scored 12 of Norwalk’s 18 points in the second quarter as the Lancers opened up a little breathing room to lead 31-26 at the half. “[Castaneda] just killed us,” Branderhorst said. “We knew he was their second threat and he’s a legitimate, good player. We weren’t sleeping on him. He played a heck of a game. “Against Holliday, I thought we did a great job,” Branderhorst continued. “Most of the shots that he took were one dribble pull-ups with a hand in his face. You say great job to the guys who were on him. [Junior Connor] Tien and [junior Trevor] Rodriguez both did a nice job on him.” Last season in the Beckman Tournament, Holliday scored 14 points in a Norwalk 52-51 victory against the Crusaders. In the opening minute of the second half, Valley senior Chris Hunt scored his sixth basket to bring the Crusaders to within four points. But the Lancers ran off the next five straight culminated by a steal and basket from Lewis. Norwalk outscored the Crusaders 15-7 in the third quarter but Valley refused to go down quietly. The Crusaders opened the fourth quarter with seven straight points and trailed 50-45 with 4:26 remaining after Hunt completed a three-point play. For the next three minutes, both teams traded points and following a Norwalk turnover with 1:16 remaining, Hunt turned the miscue into a basket as his team was down 57-54 with 1:00 left. “We certainly couldn’t get over the hump at all,” Branderhorst said. “Every time we got it to two or four, one of their guys would knock down a three. But we were forced to take chances and the chances paid off for a while to get us back in the game.” From there, the Lancers simply converted on their free throws and moved on

to a semifinal meeting with Magnolia this past Tuesday. On Dec. 5, Norwalk edged Magnolia 51-49 in the Loara Tournament. “The teams that know us are going to do something,” Webster said. “They’re not just going to let [Holliday] come off screens or catch the ball at the top and look for shots. We’ve finally been able to move the ball enough to get the ball to the open guy.” Castaneda missed only four shots in 16 attempts and in the first two games of the tournament, was shooting 68 percent from the field with 16 rebounds and five steals. Lewis had nine points and five rebounds against the Crusaders as the Lancers improved to 5-8 on the season despite playing one of the most brutal non-league schedules in school history. “It didn’t help that we played Santa Margarita, Mater Dei and Capistrano Valley but that helped us improve overall,” Webster said. “The only thing is, we’ve had inconsistencies in our starting lineup.” Hunt led the Crusaders with 18 points and 11 rebounds and has scored in double figures in five straight games and eight times this season. Senior Dean Pollema added 12 points and six rebounds while sophomore Anthony Roldan came off the bench to chip in with a career-high 11 points. “He’s an automatic double-double for us and we need that consistent effort,” Branderhorst said of Hunt. “He’s obviously the biggest guy we have but he’s versatile enough to do some things off the dribble.” The Crusaders fell to 6-5, played Loara this past Tuesday and will begin Olympic League action on Tuesday with a home encounter with Crossroads. “We’re not going to cry about our record and we don’t worry about our record that much,” Branderhorst said. “The thing we need to be worried about is just consistent play.”

Area Girls Basketball Teams Showing Mixed Results in Final Week of Preseason By Loren Kopff The 2009 calendar year will end with a pair of teams finishing above .500 and the possibility of three more either reaching or surpassing the same mark. With the Suburban League beginning on Wednesday and Valley Christian’s Olympic League opener on Jan. 8, here is a quick update on the teams in their final tournaments of the 2009-2010 season through this past Monday. In the Gahr Christmas Classic, Valley Christian fell to Compton Centennial 57-42 this past Monday in a quarterfinal game. The Lady Crusaders were 8-3 entering their game against Los Angeles Jordan this past Tuesday. Sophomore Kari Korver has been scoring 17.8 points a game while senior Taylor Cotton has been adding another 11.5 points, making Valley the only

area team with two players averaging in double figures. Norwalk has been struggling all season with its guard play but has managed to win ugly and compile a 7-5 record after a sluggish 33-25 victory against St. Matthias. Senior Alexis Love, the future Loyola Marymount University standout, scored 14 points against the Victorians and has led the team in scoring in all 12 games. In fact, only two other players have scored in double figures thus farjunior Stacie Ramirez (10 points) against St. Joseph and junior Giselle Sanchez (15 points) against Westminster. The Lady Lancers were 7-5 entering their game this past Tuesday against Southeast. Host Gahr was also 7-5 after a 62-27 win over Santee behind 15 points from junior Symone Brown and 10 points from freshman Jewelyn Sawyer. Brown has been Gahr’s leader all season with 19.1 points a game, tops by any area player. The Gladiators faced San Pedro this past Tuesday and could meet Norwalk for the consolation championship. On Dec. 11, Gahr defeated Norwalk 44-31. In the Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary Cardinal Classic, Artesia and John Glenn each went 1-1 in pool play action, then lost their games this past Monday. Glenn was 8-4 entering its game this past Tuesday with Franklin, the second straight opponent the Lady Eagles have faced from the California Interscholastic Federation-Los Angeles City Section. The Lady Eagles are also two wins away from matching last season’s total. Artesia, with a very young team and low numbers, have struggled to win two of its first 10 games. The Pioneers have not scored more than 35 points in any game and have had three games in which a player has reached double figures; that coming from sophomore Dana Arrington who put in 11 points against St. Anthony’s junior varsity team and Paramount and 15 against Animo Leadership. The Pioneers faced South Gate this past Tuesday. Finally, Cerritos ventured to San Diego to compete in the Southern California Holiday Prep Classic. The Lady Dons lost a pair of pool play games this past Monday-72-46 to Hamilton out of Chandler, AZ and 64-42 to Rancho Bernardo. Cerritos faced Santana this past Tuesday morning and was sitting at 5-7 before that game. Through the first 10 games, senior Kristy Kanamoto was leading the Lady Dons with 10.5 points a game. The Suburban League begins on Wednesday with Artesia hosting Bellflower and Glenn visiting La Mirada. Norwalk’s league opener is Jan. 8 against Cerritos.

Correction: In the Dec. 25 issue, in the Los Cerritos Community News Fall 2009 All-Area Teams, Julian Cisneros was incorrectly identified as going to Norwalk. The Honorable Mention right tackle played for Gahr.
