Union blocked by city of Glendale By shel segal A state Court of Appeal in Los Angeles blocked a move by the city of Glendale’s largest union to stop a 2010 contract that lowered pay for the city’s workers, according to a published report. The Glendale City Employees Association has been in a legal battle with the city for some time even though those pay cuts were eliminated for the approximately 1,000 union members in 2013 negotiations, according to that report. And the panel voted 2-1 to stop the union’s case even though “city may have engaged in one instance of ‘bad-faith bargaining,’” according to that report. As budget cuts have become the norm for municipalities in recent years, Glendale has been trying to lessen workers’ burdens on its own financial well being and has “pushed for more employee concessions, such as increasing the percentage workers’ pay for their own pension costs, as the financial burden of salaries and benefits,” according to that Please see page 2

Rep. Adam Schiff supports Judy Chu’s National Recreation Area bill

On Thursday, June 12, Judy Chu sent out a press release stating: “After more than a decade of studies and collaboration with local residents and stakeholders, Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27), introduced the San Gabriel National Recreation Area Act – a bill that would

designate the San Gabriel Mountains, river corridors and Puente Hills as a National Recreation Area (NRA). This legislation would allow the National Park Service (NPS) to coordinate stakeholders at the Federal, State, and local level throughout the region, and contribute to

Plagued PCC President Rocha may be off to NYC

By Terry Miller The embattled yet defiant PCC president, who prompted a vote of no confidence from students and faculty of the City college last year, is perhaps leaving the left coast. Rocha is one of three candidates for a job as president of Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, according to their Facebook page. Rocha says to his potential new student body on that of Kingsborough Community College Facebook page: "I'm for the little guy," Dr. Rocha says. "I grew up in the South Bronx and “The American Dream is real to me. It’s still alive and well in our both of my parents dropped community colleges.” - Rocha -Photo by Terry Miller

out of high school. But they saw to it I went college. The American Dream is real to me. It's still alive and well in our community colleges." But the vote of no confidence wasn’t the only thing Rocha has been criticized for. His recent commencement speaker conundrum , which turned out to be a major fiasco and civic embarrassment, proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Rocha is “ totally out of touch” with PCC and students on the West Coast according to one student who preferred Please see page 5

legislation. Mountjoy warned the Council, “This is a bad idea. You don’t know what is in it and you don’t even have a set map yet. People don’t know the boundaries.” Mountjoy echoed resident Fred Bowden’s concern about the bond Monrovia residents passed 14 years ago to buy wilderness areas above the city. This is a 30year bond for $10 million that the residents are obligated to pay off. He said the council is giving away property to the federal government and he and the citizens of Monrovia are going to have to continue to pay on that bond for another 15 or 16 years. Bowden said he also donated property to the Monrovia wilderness area, not to the federal government. Tom Adams, Monrovia Council Member joined in pointing out Monrovia had asked the federal government at that time to partner up and join in their efforts to preserve the Monrovia hillside and wilderness areas. The feds declined, so Monrovia residents did it themselves

The judge who has ruled that California’s tenure protections for public school teachers are unconstitutional, hails from Temple City. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Rolf Treu Graduated Temple City High in 1966 according to records obtained by this newspaper. Tuesday last week, Judge Treu ruled in favor of nine students who sued the state saying tenure and seniority policies have made it virtually impossible to fire bad teachers. One of those students, Raylene Monterroza who testified was from Blair High school in Pasadena testified about a great teacher and one “grossly ineffective” teacher who“.. made me afraid, it made me not want to try or show up to school, and it was basically an opportunity to learn wasted, and it really put me behind my peers.” Lawyers for the teachers say the changes would allow the firing of teachers too easily. The decision will have a “significant impact on

A new California Appellate case just published August 8, 2013, “Glaski v. Bank of America”, holds that a homeowner can challenge 3nd annual Downtown Burhis lender’s right foreclose byJuly showing banktoCar Classic on 26 that the Deed of Trust never made it into the securitized trust until after the trust’s closing date. This is the case in most loans made in the last 12 years. If the bank foreclosed we should be able to get the homeowner money damages and/or the house back. Or a lawsuit could be filed and a court ruling obtained preventing the court from foreclosing. Recently enacted Sections 2924(a)(6) and 2924.19 of California Civil Code provide the same relief to homeowners. It is highly suggested that homeowners take this window of opportunity to get relief before the banks get Congress to close this door with national legislation. Contact us so we can help you.

report. The city is also trying to buy out employees with up to six months of their salaries to entice people to retire after trimming its staff by 150 people with other retirement incentives, according to that report. The council cut pay for the association member 1.5 percent across the board in 2010 after reaching an impasse with the union, along with lower retirement benefits for new hires, according to that report. And after reaching an

impasse as well with the Glendale Water & Power union last year, the city cut the pay of those members by 1.75 percent. That caused the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 18 to take the city to court, according to that report. The association originally tried to fight the cut in pay in 2010 via the Public Employment Relations Board. However, when a full hearing was denied, the association sued the board in Los Angeles Su-

perior Court, according to that report. “The union failed at the trial court level and then filed an appeal to the Second Appellate District. If the union had prevailed at the administrative level, Glendale could have been on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars in back wages,” according to that report.

Story Chicks - July 27 Continued from page 1

This writing and performing team takes its audience on a nostalgic journey through rural, 1950s childhood. Terri (from East Houston, Texas) and CE (from Ojai, Calif.) weave their individual kid stories into shared tales about snakes and lizards, winning and losing at marbles, and seriously bad weather, to name only a few - while also inviting folks to recall their own crazy and touching adventures. CE (Christine) Jordan Bio-CE Jordan has performed and created unique dance/ theatre work all her life. Her signature dance opus, ‘LA Breakdown’, a 6-part dance/ theatre work, premiered in sections from 1984 to 1987 at Cal State LA, and came together in a complete showing at Fringe Festival LA in Fall 1987, entertaining folks for two weekends at the Mac Arthur Park Bandshell. She was bitten by the poetry bug in 1982, and has subsequently had her work published in Armchair/Shotgun, Blue Satellite, Rivertalk and other journals over the years. She began staging her poetry and stories in 1996, performing with The Nannette Brodie Dance Theatre in 1996-97. Most notably, her signature theatre opus, ‘Notes on a Country Childhood’, an evening solo outing full of touching and entertaining stories and poems about her rural childhood in Ojai, CA, has been performed in various theatrical and non traditional performing spaces since 2009. CE has her BA in dance from UCLA and MA in Theatre from CSULA. She has studied ballet and tap extensively, performed in summer stock with The Santa Barbara Youth Theatre, and danced professionally with The Moving Co. a Pasadena-based modern dance company, part of the NEA Dance Touring program, from 1973-78. She has been honored to work with Eugene Loring, Bella Lewitsky and Miriam Nelson on stage and in television, and with Debra DeLiso in acting and staging memoir. Her own career teaching creative dance and theatre to children spans 25 years. She continues to learn and create by the seat of her pants! Terri MartinLujan -.Terri’s performance career began early, singing and per-

forming in high school musicals in Texas. She continued to add to her talents by studying dance at CSULA where she joined the company, Kinetic Junction under the directorship of Jan E. Day. Her extensive training in dance improvisation, modern lyrical and jazz techniques led her to choreograph her first work, “Straysod” in 1980 for her mentor, Jan E. Day. Terri continued with the company from 1978-1986 where she had the privilege to work under the directorship of Agnes De Mille, Kathryn Dunham, Steven Peck, Elle Johnson, Lulu Washington and Bella Lewitsky during her time with the company. Terri has served as a board member and consultant for Celebration Entertainment Academy, an ROP program for performing arts in East San Gabriel Valley and in 2012, acted as managing director for Serving Artists In Process, a non-profit organization under Pasadena Arts Council, Emerge Projects. Terri has worked with masterful authors promoting stories and writing. She has been involved with children and adult literacy through a the California Reading Council and International Reading Council, serving as President of the Secondary division. Her essays have been published in the online journal, East Jasmine Review, www. eastjasminereview.com and her first children’s picture book, The Velveteen Dress, will be available in late 2014. When Terri began to take acting and writing classes with USC acting coach, Debra DeLiso, she was inspired to create her first one woman show titled “Some Say”. Now Terri can’t stop writing and has joined CE Jordan to form Story Chicks, a theatrical new experience for her and for audiences. Terri is an eclectic artist who retains a creative spirit. The Story Chicks’ engaging and imaginative writing style translates like a charm to the stage, as these gals have a knack for physical humor while always tugging at the heartstrings. Story Chicks is real life, and as Terri and CE say: "We make memories, so we can tell stories." Reservations 10am10pm (626) 798-6236/$15 coffeegallery.com

Judy Chu Introduces Bill to Create a San Gabriel NRA despite Mountains of Opposition Continued from page 1

with the $10 million bond. Now that the land has been purchased we have someone who is a willing partner… Why wouldn’t they be? It doesn’t cost them anything, said Adams. Adams said he had been to a meeting with Chu and was surprised when she said part of the reason her legislation is needed is because we have no maps of the trails in the San Gabriel Mountains. He asked her about the maps and books the Santa Anita Historical Society has and she told him she had never heard of the organization. Adams said he was shocked that Chu professed to be so knowledgeable about the San Gabriels and wants to save them but knows so little about them. Despite Mayor Lutz’s push to move forward with support for the NRA legislation, the Council voted 5-0 to send a letter to Congresswoman Chu opposing Monrovia being in the National Recreation Area. Council voted 5-0 to support that motion with Mayor Lutz qualifying her vote noting there are questions she would still like answers to regarding the NRA and the impact on Monrovia. Based on the long-standing unwritten rule in Monrovia that council members don’t put Monrovia’s name on anything that is controversial without coming back to the body for support, Adams asked the Council’s representative to the COG, Mayor Mary Ann Lutz, write a letter rescinding her vote supporting the NRA. Alternate motion was carried to copy the SGV COG on the letter to Congresswoman Chu opposing Monrovia’s inclusion in the National Recreation Area. Motion passed 5-0. But Judy Chu marched on despite the oppositions and continued with her NRA plan on the house floor. “The Los Angeles region is one of the most park poor regions of the country. We face two challenges as a result: there are very few options for Angelenos to enjoy the outdoors, and the options we do have are under immense stress from overuse,” said Rep. Chu. “After a decade of consideration and collaboration, I am proud to introduce legislation protecting these mountains that’s consistent with our community needs and priorities.” Congresswoman Chu undertook an extensive public outreach process to ensure

local influence and control over the final product. Her efforts include four stakeholder roundtables with elected officials, water, sanitation and utilities, business groups and Chambers of Commerce, and environmental advocates, as well as a town hall for constituents from all over the San Gabriel Valley to voice their opinions and concerns. “This has been a community effort from the very beginning,” Rep. Chu continued. “My bill empowers local communities to collaborate on recreational plans and projects in ways that don’t exist today. The vision of this NRA began with the community and it will be realized by the community.” Additional Members who are original cosponsors of Congresswoman Chu’s legislation include Representative Adam Schiff (CA-28), and Representative Tony Cárdenas (CA-29). They released the following statements: “Representative Chu’s legislation is an important step forward in a decadeslong effort to preserve open space and increase access to nature across the Southland,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (DBurbank). “As the National Park Service finalizes their recommendations on the expansion or creation of a National Recreation Area in the Rim of the Valley as well, I look forward to continuing our combined efforts to ensure the preservation of wildlife corridors, recreational opportunities and rare ecosystems throughout our region.” “In urban areas like Los Angeles, we must treasure and protect the open spaces that so many in our nation take for granted,” said Cárdenas. “My friend Judy Chu has taken a wonderful step in that direction, by creating a recreation area that is not pavement and swing sets, but instead the natural wonder of our mountain landscapes. I am proud to add my voice of support to environmentalists, nature groups and families through the Los Angeles area, and I urge my colleagues to pass this Act quickly, so that Californians can begin to enjoy the San Gabriel National Recreation Area as soon as possible, and for generations to come.” However, a former Mayor states: As a former Mayor of Glendora, I, and several

other elected and appointed officials in the San Gabriel Valley, have been talking about Congresswoman Judy Chu’s National Recreation Area (NRA) legislation and two other pieces, Wilderness and Wild & Scenic Rivers legislation. No official titles or bill numbers have been provided at this point. These pieces of legislation are the product of a 9-year San Gabriel Watershed & Mountains Special Resource Study presented April 2013. Initially, the Study proposed the San Gabriel Watershed Area be incorporated into the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy led by Joe Edmiston. Across the board, jurisdictions are strongly opposed to becoming a unit of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy (SMMC) An articles sent to me the best explanation why all are so adamantly opposed. Articles by Beth Barrett and Jack Cheevers, L.A. Times: 1. From Congress to the Governor’s Office to local governments, Edmiston has created a political machine beginning in Gov. Edmund G. ``Jerry’’ Brown’s administration that exempts him from term limits, voters’ displeasure and even from very much independent or fiscal oversight. 2. The conservancy’s staff has been cut in half. Its capital budget, which swelled to $80 million in state bonds during the 1980s, now has no unencumbered funds left. A $324,000 appropriation in this year’s state budget was needed to keep it afloat. 3. In a Land Swap deal, Bob Hope would have sold and donated thousands of acres in Los Angeles and Ventura counties for public open space. In return, the federal government would give national parkland to a developer for a road to Hope’s secluded Jordan Ranch in Ventura County. That access would allow luxury homes to be built on the land, which government park authorities have sought to acquire for years.4. What role has eminent domain played in SMMC and Joe Edmiston’s acquisitions? 5. What is the financial status of the SMMC now? More concern about the Whittier Oil Revenue Land Swap Deal. Prop A bond money purchased 1,280 acres in 1994 for $17 million intended for open space/conservation. In 2008, Whittier

voted to lease 7 acres of that land to an oil company for up to $100 million a year. Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, a regional government entity, dedicated to preserving open space and wildlife, after filing a lawsuit, agreed to settle and is to receive up to $11.25 million a year from Whittier’s royalties from the oil. The MRCA will use the money to buy land elsewhere . L.A. Times 8-17-13 said the Board of Supervisors will have final say on this one. Additional concerns: 1. Water Rights a. Water agencies requested an audit of Federal water rights in the SG Mountains before legislation takes effect to establish a benchmark to measure impact of proposed recreational projects (Chu’s response: After the legislation passes) b. Technical review process when new projects are proposed be included c. Water supply, water quality and water facilities should not be treated as coequals with recreation d. Water replenishment costs could double or quadruple if the current level and quality of ground water is not 2. Private Property Rights a. What role does eminent domain play in acquiring the National Recreation Area? (Chu’s response: Specific maintained 1. Borders of the National Recreation Area are not specifically defined and should disclose: 2. Impact on adjacent uses absent buffer zones 3. Increased insurance costs for residential and businesses within the NRA zone 4. Disclosure requirements prior to sale and impact on property values boundaries after legislation passes) 3. Local Control a. Boundaries of NRA are not specifically defined therefore public comment is restricted b. In place of a legal description, the legislation says a map is substituted [having the same force and effect as if included in this act] not clearly indicating specific boundaries but allows the federal government to “correct any clerical and typographical errors” NRA establishes two entities to make decisions concerning access and use of the Area and any future “improvements” or development. Members

are appointees of the federal government, not directly elected by the public that will be impacted. San Gabriel National Recreation Area Partnership includes 17 people headed by Secretary of Agriculture and National Park Service along with several state secretaries with 3 years to create a Management Plan San Gabriel National Recreation Area Public Advisory Council includes 21 members appointed by the Secretaries of the Partnership to represent interests of the NRA and adjacent area. A quorum of this group is 10 members and can make decisions even if the full Council has not been appointed. Less than 50% and not directly elected by the public. The partnership may use Federal funds under a section not defined in the legislation and then give that money in the form of grants to the State, political subdivisions of the State, nonprofit organizations, and other persons. Other persons? Who is that? Not defined. The public advisory council shall cease to exist 5 years after the management plans are completed or whenever the appointed members of the Partnership think is appropriate. How does this proposal improve what we in the San Gabriel Valley have already done? Who will oversee or control those plans after preparation and initial implementation of the Management Plan? What we have here is a group of people not directly elected by the public picking a committee and leader and establishing rules of operation guided by a federal bureaucracy all of whom will dictate to those within various jurisdictional boundaries who didn’t elect them.”

USDA to update rules protecting captive orcas and other marine mammals Reps. Adam Schiff (DCA) and Jared Huffman (DCA) attached an amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations Act to require the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to conduct and update the science necessary for Animal Welfare Act regulations on captivity of orcas and cetaceans. The amendment would direct the Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service – which regulates animal captivity, sale, and exhibition– to update and finalize captive marine mammal regulations that have languished for 20 years. The Schiff-Huffman amendment passed with unanimous bipartisan support. “For almost 20 years, USDA has failed to review and update the Animal Welfare Act regulations for captive orcas and other marine mammals. These rules certainly should have been revised in light of new data twelve years ago when USDA opened up the rulemaking process. Unfortunately, they dropped the ball—so it’s time to try again,” Reps. Schiff and Huffman said. “Our amendment reminds USDA that inaction is unacceptable – the American people want to see these regulations reviewed and updated to reflect the growing scientific and public concern about the effect of captivity on these animals.” In 2002, USDA sought public comment on an update to captive marine mammal standards for indoor facilities, outdoor facilities, water quality, space requirements, and swim-with-the-dolphin programs. Last month, Reps. Huffman, Schiff and 38 members of Congress called on USDA to take immediate steps to ensure the regulations protecting captive orcas and marine mammals reflect modern science.In a bipartisan letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the members of Congress urged his department to immediately update Animal Welfare Act (AWA) regulations for captive marine mammals, which have not been updated since 1995.

Temple City Graduate overturns California Teachers' Tenure Continued from page 1

the way California hires and fires teachers and could spur changes in other states with strong tenure laws,” according to lawyers who fought for continued tenure. Raylene Monterroza, a sixteen-year-old Plaintiff who attended traditional district schools in the Pasadena Unified School District and the Long Beach Unified School District, took the stand after Elizabeth Vergara completed her testimony. Raylene began her testimony by sharing a story about her seventh-grade English teacher, who she said was “the best teacher 2178 I ever had.” According

to Raylene, this teacher always came prepared, had unique learning plans for each student, and started the debate program at her school—the only debate program in the Pasadena Unified School District. In a moment of levity, Raylene, who participated in the debate program, testified that she loved being a part of the program, even though they placed last in competitions. Raylene described her seventh-grade English teacher as very engaged and effective, raising her class’ test scores to the highest scores in the district. Unfortunately, this highly effective teacher was laid off as a result of a reduction in force. Raylene emphasized the impact that this grossly ineffective teacher had on her: “It made me afraid, it made me not want to try or show up to school, and it was basically an opportunity to learn wasted, and it really put me behind my peers.” Finally, Raylene stated why she became a Plaintiff in the case: “I care about ed-

ucation, and I want to maybe return to public school and be with my friends, and I don’t want any other kids to have bad teachers.” In addition to Plaintiffs’ testimony, the Court heard testimony from Nick Melvoin, a former LAUSD teacher who was laid off multiple times under the “Last-in, First-out” (LIFO) Statute, and Dr. Dan Goldhaber, a Research Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington, Bothell.” PUSD Chairman Scott Phelps told Beacon Media: Of course we would love to not have to lay off by seniority as it really ties our hands and prevents us from making changes. The stalling is of course led by their CTA attorney who has wasted more time than anyone I know. We may tell PERB we are at impasse. I would support using student outcome data only for a max of 30% of a teacher’s evaluation because I am leery of what overemphasis on standardized testing does to curriculum and instruction.”

Plagued PCC President Rocha may be off to NYC Continued from page 1

to remain anonymous. PCC gave itself a “black eye” according to a Los Angeles Times report over the rescinded commencement speech invitation to Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, it announced that the replacement commencement speaker would be Dr. Eric Walsh, Pasadena’s director of public health. Only to discover that Walsh was a bigotand and vehemently antigay. Black eye indeed, for Pasadena too. Walsh was placed on paid administra-

tive leave and the story got even more complicated “Black, 39, would have been a terrific and inspiring speaker. But PCC President Mark W. Rocha, Deputy Supt. Robert Bell and Pasadena Area Community College Board of Trustees President Anthony Fellow feared that an obscure 2009 incident involving a purloined sex tape featuring Black with a former boyfriend would give the college a “bad name,” Anthony Fellow said in an interview with the student newspaper, The Courier.

The public embarrassment of the Walsh saga combined with the anti-gay slings and arrows pointed in the direction of actor Dustin Black and then the re-invitation, which was accepted by Black in the eleventh hour closed a dark chapter on the campus. Rocha was appointed president of PCC in 2010. In October, the PCC Board of Trustees voted unanimously to extend Rocha’s contract through 2017 and raise his salary by $10,000 to $254,135 a year starting on July 1.

Hernández and Hoffa show support for contract workers

Teamsters President James P. Hoffa speaks last week -Courtesy Photo

Assemblymember Roger Hernández (D –West Covina) along with Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa convened at the South Steps of the Capitol for a news conference in support of contract and temporary workers last Thursday. “As Chair of the Assembly Labor Committee, I see it as part of my mission to take on systemic and widespread business models that are designed to keep workers down. We are taking on a business model that relies on labor contractors to confuse workers and evade responsibility for labor laws. California’s middle class is eroding because of this business model. We must put an end to this before greed finishes what the people in labor have fought for,” stated Hernández. The Senate Committee on Labor and Industrial Relations yesterday approved AB 1897, a bill approved by the Assembly that would hold companies accountable for serious violations of the rights of workers on their premises. Hernández and Hoffa were joined today by workers from Taylor Farms,

a California company where workers have faced abuse in the workplace. Taylor Farms is the world’s largest salad processor, supplying to McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Subway, Darden Restaurants (Olive Garden and Red Lobster), and many other restaurant and food chains. At its processing plant in Tracy, a majority of the people who do the work actually are employed by three temporary staffing agencies and not by Taylor Farms. “This shell game is a significant contributor to the crisis in our economy today,” said Teamsters General President James Hoffa. “More and more people are working harder with less to show for it. Their low wages, unhealthy working conditions, and lack of benefits subsidize the greatest wealth at the top in the history of the world. Holding corporations accountable for violations of basic worker rights on their premises would be an important step in the right direction.” Hernández and Hoffa head to Tracy, CA later this afternoon at 4 p.m. in support of workers at Taylor Farms (1820 N MacArthur Drive).

Structure Fire in Glendale causes $400,000 damage On Wednesday, June 11, 9 Glendale units and 3 Burbank units (1 Battalion command team, 6 engine companies, 3 truck companies, 1 air utility, and 1 basic life support ambulance) were dispatched to a structure fire at 240 Jesse Avenue in the city of Glendale. Glendale Engine 27 was first to arrive on scene and discovered a single story single family dwelling with heavy fire showing from a garage attached to the rear of the structure. With the assistance of from the Burbank Fire Department, firefighters mounted an aggressive attack

and vertical ventilation while protecting neighboring exposures. Additional fire companies assisted with salvage and overhaul. Units declared knockdown at 3:53am. One firefighter suffered a minor injury. There was $400,000 in structure loss and $100,000 in content damages. The Glendale Fire Department would like to remind residents that smoke alarms are a key part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms give you early warning, so you can get outside quickly.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 848-9272 or visit this Internet Web site www.elitepostandpub.com, using the file number assigned to this case 13-26463.
