A

t last week’s meeting, the city council recognized Sheriff’s Department volunteer John Warren for his dedicated service to the community and presented him with a recognition plaque. Warren is part of the Volunteers on Patrol (VOP) team at the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station and was recently selected as the Sheriff’s Region 3 Volunteer of the Year. The VOPS serve as a valuable resource to La Mirada’s Public Safety Team, acting as the eyes and the ears of the Sheriff’s Department. They identify suspicious activities, report crimes in progress, and identify dangerous situations.

A burglary occured on the 14900 block of Tacuba Dr. Various electronics, laptops, and jewelry were taken. Grand Theft: A grand theft was reported from the 14200 block of Artesia Blvd. The incident is under investigation. Grand Theft Vehicle: Four vehicle thefts were reported last week.

A vehicle was taken from the 15500 block of Talbot Dr. The vehicle has not

been recovered. Essential Strategies for Your Personal Safety (Part 3 of 4) Preventing Auto Burglary Vehicle burglary is one of the most common types of crime in our area. Vehicle burglaries are crimes of opportunity, but by taking simple steps you can help reduce the chance of becoming a victim. Out of Sight, Out of Crime Many vehicle burglaries are a result of items that are left in plain sight in the passenger compartment of a vehicle. Never leave any valuables in plain view in your vehicle. Either take the items with you or lock them in the trunk of your vehicle. Common valuables stolen include purses and wallets, GPS devices, cell phones, MP3 players, and laptops. People often leave these items inside of their vehicle in plain view because they only plan to be away from the vehicle for a few moments, however it only takes a few seconds to break into a vehicle and take your property. If you must leave valuables inside of your vehicle, take the time to secure them prior to reaching your destination. Commercial parking lots such as gyms and shopping malls are high target areas for vehicle burglars who may be watching where you conceal items inside of your vehicle

prior to exiting. Always be mindful when entering a parking lot of suspicious persons that may be lingering on foot in the area or watching the parking lot from inside of a vehicle. If any suspicious activity is observed notify the La Mirada Community Sheriff’s Station immediately (562) 902-2960. Try to be as observant as possible. Obtain a person description, a vehicle description, and vehicle license plates if possible to help law enforcement.

suspect robbed a bank in the 13200 block of South Street. At 8:00 a.m. on Friday July 27, four male suspects entered a home in the 13100 block of Carolyn Street, assaulted a male resident and fled with a small amount of jewelry. Indications are that all of the parties involved are known to each other and detectives are continuing the investigation. Residential burglaries rose from two to four last week. Two open windows and two pried sliding glass doors were the entry points. A safe, laptop computers and a watch were taken. The 2012 weekly average in residential burglaries is now 4.2. We cannot stress the need to ensure your residence is COMPLETELY secured prior to departing. One of the open windows involved in the burglaries last week was on the second story. Obviously, a little height is not a deterrent to would-be thieves. Commercial burglaries also increased from two to six last week. Three lockers at a fitness center were targeted where wallets, ID, keys and a cell phone were stolen. A storage unit was burglarized and missing items included pots, pans and miscellaneous paperwork. A vacant building was the crime scene in the sixth case where copper wire was taken. The 2012 weekly average in “other structure”/ commercial burglaries is 2.0. Vehicle burglaries dropped from 11 cases to 10 last week. Commercial parking lots were involved in seven crimes. Five victims drove SUVs. Purses, jewelry, Blue-Tooths, gym bags, credit cards, cameras GPS units and vehicle stereos were reported as loss items. The 2012 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 7.8. Shattering a window is the most common method used in vehicle burglaries. Would you rely on less than a quarter inch of glass to protect your valuable property? Unfortunately, too many people do by leaving items in the passenger compartment of their vehicles. Thieves will gladly make you a victim without a second thought. Don’t provide them the opportunity to do so. Take your property with you or at the very least, lock it in the trunk. Vehicle thefts were down from four to two last week. Both were from lots. A Honda and an SUV were stolen. The new 2012 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 3.3. Steering wheel locking devices can cost as little as $25.00 and are a visual deterrent. This is a very small added “insurance policy” to make sure that your vehicle is available when you return to it. Go to www.safercerritos.com for an extensive library of crime prevention tips, disaster preparedness information, and a variety of links to other pertinent sites. Volunteers on Patrol Wanted: The Cerritos Sheriff’s Station is seeking Volunteers on Patrol (VOPs). Patrolling the City in distinctly marked vehicles, VOPs assist with crime suppression, traffic control, vacation checks, special events and park security checks. They serve as additional “eyes and ears” for the Sheriff’s Department and train as first responders in the event of a major emergency or disaster. If you are interested in helping Cerritos maintain its reputation as a safe place to live and work, the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station encourages you to apply to be a VOP. For more information, contact the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station at (562) 860-0044, or visit the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station to obtain an application. Block Captains Wanted: If you are interested in becoming a Block Captain in the Cerritos Neighborhood Watch, contact the Community Safety office at 562-916-1266. Block Captains act as contacts for the Sheriff’s Department and the Community Safety Division on behalf of their neighbors. They are also responsible for distributing information and do a great deal to promote public safety in Cerritos. Remember, informed citizens who use safe living strategies are safer citizens! We encourage residents, business owners, and their employees to consider joining the Virtual Block Club (VBC). If you are interested in helping our Sheriff’s Department prevent and reduce crime, and enhancing your own personal and neighborhood safety, join the VBC on-line at our website devoted to public safety in the City of Cerritos.

he “Plain Jane Bandit” has struck again, holding up a Chase branch in Cerritos. The suspect robbed the branch located on the 11000 block of South Street at about 10:40 a.m. Tuesday. This is the eighth bank she’s hit across Southern California within a span of less than a month. Just a day before, the suspect held up a Bank of America branch on Paramount Boulevard in Downey. During the Cerritos robbery, the suspect left before getting any money. Though she did not show a weapon, detectives say she should be considered armed and dangerous. The FBI says Plain Jane uses the same method every time. She walks into a bank, and shows the teller a note asking for cash. She has also indicated that a second person is waiting for her outside the bank, but no accomplice has ever been seen.

OPINION Lead by Example

Current Cerritos City Council Lacks Fortitude By Brian Hews publisher@cerritosnews.net

T

he city councils below all agreed that one of their colleagues deserved censure. As you read on please note that Brian Hews some are very close to Publisher what Mayor pro tem Barrows committed after a council meeting June 4.

Gloria Kappe, Jim Edwards, Paul Bowlen, and Laura Lee voted to censure John Crawley for email violations. The Hawaiian Gardens City Council, in a 3-1 vote, censured Councilmember Barry Bruce for violations of council policy regarding the conduct and decorum for council meetings and council norms and procedures with Councilman Bruce abstaining. West St. Paul City Council censured council member Ed Hansen over allegations he was "aggressive" and "confrontational" to people who were working at two houses that are for sale next to his. The Coopersville City censured one of its own member for verbally attack one of the Downtown Association’s merchants. The City Council of Stockbridge voted to censure Mayor Lee Stuart, who council members accuse of harassing city employees and disrupting the government's func-

tions. The Pekin City Council is censuring Councilman Tom Blanchard for violating the city’s code of conduct and e-mail policy. Wilkinsburg councilman censured, stripped of vice presidency Wilkinsburg council voted to censure council member John Thompson for intimidating several borough employees about their job security. The Helena-West Helena City Council voted to censure a city councilman accused of sending a racist e-mail. "Helena city councilman said city officials are monkeys running a zoo," said city council member Marvin Jarrett. There are many more, but you get the picture. It is very interesting that this current city council has done nothing to admonish Barrows for his actions June 4. Does Bar-

rows know something about each councilmember that he is holding against them? How does one explain the lack of action? The lack of comments by council-members in contrast to the many comments aimed at John Crawley is also interesting. I just spoke to a resident that received a letter from Code Enforcement about a car in their driveway that “looked inoperable”. The letter threatened to bring that person in front the council and admonish them. So if you have an old car in your driveway you get dragged in front of council, if you assault a resident you become Mayor.

AL LYNDER, DEFENDER OF ALL THAT IS TRUE stood in front of my desk. “I just don’t understand Editor-in-Chief the opposition to havJERRY BERNSTEIN ing a Goodwill Store in Cerritos,” she said, frustration in her tone of voice. “VAL,” I said, why don’t you sit down

and explain why you’re so upset.” Relaxing slightly, she sat down, her umbrella leaning against the chair. “Why are you so upset?” I asked. “The city council hasn’t voted on the issue. In fact all the council has done is mandate a 45-day moratorium at their June 14 meeting on the request by Goodwill to open a store in the city.” That’s not what I’ve heard. Mayor Jim Edwards has said he is not in favor of it.

Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Barrows is against it and Councilmember Carol Chen has indicated she’s not in favor of a Goodwill Store in Cerritos. Have they said why?” I asked. “I guess they agree with some of the residents that the Cerritos doesn’t need one.” she answered. Before I could reply she continued, “I guess they prefer the store to remain empty and look like its

Artesia Joins America in Bloom in September

A

rtesia City Manager Maria Dadian was endorsed by Mayor John Lyon to represent the City at the America in Bloom Symposium and Awards to be held in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Sept. 20 to 22. During the opening of the three-day event, Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan will welcome all participants and share his insights as to the initiatives that have distinguished Fayetteville as one of the most livable places in America. Keynote speaker will be Arkansas native son P. Allen Smith, one of the best known and most beloved lifestyle and gardening experts in America. On the last day of the symposium, Robin Moore, Director of National Learning Initiative and author of “Natural Learning - the

Life History of an Environmental Schoolyard,” is expected to discuss “Designing Nature into Children’s Lives.” Along with the workshops, participants are expecting to receive a detailed report that evaluates the City’s efforts and recommendation on future activities. As one of 200 participants vying for honors and recognition, the City of Artesia, just like each of the entries, will be evaluated in terms of its floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, heritage preservation, and the overall impression left on the America In Bloom judges. All the criteria for the contest are designed to bring community and people together to achieve improvements in the latter’s quality of life, as part of the community-building endeavor of the Arkansas-based national organization.

Two AIB judges Evelyn Alemanni and Jack Clasen flew to Los Angeles on the weekend of July 6 to peer through the City parks, neighborhood and business districts. Mayor Lyon gave a special orientation to the judges at the Old Fire Station 30. Alemanni said she was amazed by the amount of work the City has done toward greening its community. She also found especially moving the partnerships between the City, the local volunteer organizations such as Artesia in Action, and the school district.

Both judges were particularly impressed by the nature gardens at Niemes Elementary. Individual is valued for his/her intrinsic worth and contribution,” said Alemanni. The City was a participant to America in Bloom in 2008. Since then the community has developed enough “green” projects and has come to understand just what needs to be done in order to do well in the next America in Bloom symposium. Confident that Artesia is ready for the AIB program this year, Mayor Lyon said, “we’re a built up urban community and we’ve done a lot that we can be proud of and showcase.”

PIH Reaches Out to Retired Baby Boomers to Fill Volunteer Needs Volunteering offers Boomers the opportunity to continue to use their professional skills for the benefit of their community hospital. According to United States Census data, everyday more than 10,000 Baby Boomers (those born from 1946-1964) reach retirement age. Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital (PIH) is looking to recruit at least 100 new retirees to their volunteer team. “Our goal is to reinforce our volunteer base with people that have management experience, strong presentation skills and are enthusiastic about the work PIH is doing in the community,” said Director of Senior and Volunteer Services Nancy Whyte. “As PIH expands in size and service capability, our volunteer base needs to increase to accommodate this growth.” The new Plaza Tower scheduled to open later this year will bring more opportunities for volunteers to put their talent to work. By sharing their time, experience, knowledge and skills, volunteers help PIH achieve its goal of providing superior healthcare to the community. PIH volunteers interact with patients in a non-clinical manner, work alongside hospital staff and serve with other volunteers in a team atmosphere.

HEWSMEDIAGROUP.COM

The volunteer program offers scheduling flexibility, a variety of assignments and a chance to put current skills to use or acquire new ones. Those considering giving back to the community and helping others should contact Cindy Daniels, volunteer services manager, at 562.698.0811 Ext. 12422.

Prior to moving to Corvallis, Ms. Volmert worked for over 14 years in two Southern California Cities, Baldwin Park and West Covina. Ms. Volmert said, “I am thrilled to be coming to La Palma. It’s a great small city with wonderful livability and community spirit. It is an honor to serve La Palma as City Manager.

Inside look at the Portrait of Jesus stained glass image at the Fountain of Life Community Church. The portrait had withstood several earthquakes and a fire before the refurbishing.

Olive Lutheran Church established in La Mirada in 1957-three years before La Mirada’s incorporation as a city. The name change came about when the church merged with Hope Lutheran Church of Whittier in 2008. The church is also home to the La Mirada Community Garden, located in the rear of the property. The portrait, which is 54 years old, is original to the building and reportedly has survived a fire and numerous earthquakes. According to church Secretary Betty Emery, the rendering has begun to show its age in recent years, saying the sectionals had become loose in their casings, and the church was concerned they would fall out. A company in Pasadena that specializes in stained glass repair was contacted and they extracted the pieces, then restored and reinstalled the sections securely. “Now we are good for another 50 years,” said Emery. Apparently, there is quite a demand in the industry for these types of repairs and installations at churches, “We had to wait almost two months for their business, because so many other churches have had the same problem,” said Emery. With the installation now complete, evening walkers along Biola will once again be able to view the illuminated portrait.including their service times, call (562) 941-4610.

AUDIT INSIDE LA COUNTY ASSESSOR OPS ENTERS FOURTH MONTH randy@cerritosnews.net

A

massive audit into the operations of the embattled Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office continued this week with accounting officials combing through countless financial records. The audit is now entering its fourth month, and all signals indicate that it could still be a while before the complex review is completed The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors called for the audit back in early April after Assessor John Noguez manufactured an John R. Noguez alarmingly property tax forecast that Supervisors classified as “creating unexpected headaches for hardpressed municipalities, school districts and public safety agencies that rely on the funding of the County.” Noguez had disclosed to supervisors in the past that the county’s 2012-2013 prop-

erty tax roll would likely generate only a fraction of the net increase he’d forecasted in December, dropping from $18 billion to just $5 billion. Noguez at the time blamed the disparity on what he said was “a surprising plunge in property values during the final months of last year, with an average 5% tax reduction expected on more than 500,000 parcels.” Supervisors didn’t agree with Noguez and demanded the massive audit commence “immediately.” Four months later, the review still lags on. Noguez has since abandoned his day to day duties as the Assessor, and has been on a full paid leave of absence for the past month, and law enforcement officials are continuing a criminal investigation into alleged bribery, and other influence peddling allegations by law enforcement officials. Schneiderman told LCCN on Wednesday in an interview that the audit “is progressing” and that his staff’s focus has been concentrated on three specific areas including a Fiscal Audit, a Management Audit, and a Parcel Property Audit. The Fiscal Audit will determine the “overall business operations” of the As-

sessor’s office including payroll, cash handling and other day to day fiscal issues with the sprawling department that has more than 1600 employees. County officials have contracted with an outside auditing firm, Strategica, which is headquartered in Washington State. “We needed additional outside assistance in determining the Management Audit of the Assessor’s operation,” Schneiderman said. Also being reviewed is a sample of parcels that received more than a 20%, or larger reduction in assessed property values. “This is taking time to complete,” Schneiderman said. He did not know when it would be completed saying “I can’t answer that question.” The raids at Noguez office took place on April 26 and literally left hundreds of Assessor employees locked out of their offices for several hours. Some employees in the Assessor’s office were held in a secured basement location at the Los Angeles County Hall of Administration. The office is now overseen by Santos Kreimman, who was appointed by County Chief Executive Officer William Fujioka last month.

Since going to the playoffs three times in a four-year span in the middle of last decade, the Artesia football program has struggled in many areas, most notably in the numbers department. But the Pioneers had over 40 players when they kicked off last Sept. 2 at Huntington Park, a sign that things may be turning around for the program. Although the Pioneers went 1-9 last season, head coach Joe Veach is optimistic that better results will take place this season. “One of the biggest things we’ve improved on is just the commitment level from the kids,” Veach said. “We started three years ago with a lot of sophomores. So this year, I think we’re looking to build

off of all of that because we have a lot of kids who have played for three years in important spots.” For the first time in three seasons, the Pioneers will have experience in a lot of the key spots that the past teams haven’t had during the 2-28 days from 2009-2011. OFFENSE Artesia had a hard time getting going in its games last season, falling behind fast and early. The team scored 194 points and only had two first half touchdowns in its first four games. It wasn’t until the fifth game that the Pioneers reached 20 points, a 53-21 loss at Norwalk in which all of their points were scored before halftime. Coming back for his season is quarterback Francisco Galan, who passed for 1,354 yards last season and a dozen touchdowns. But he also threw 10 interceptions and did not get a lot of protection from the offensive line. Galan figures to be one of the Suburban League’s top signal callers. “The record hasn’t shown it; he’s won one game as a starting quarterback,” Veach said. “But if you watch the games or studied the films, there are times where he has to catch it [from under center] and get rid of it in the blink of an eye because we haven’t been able to protect him. But he’s really grown as a quarterback, as a football player and as a kid, too.” Backing up Galan will be senior Jeremy Gaskin, who touched the ball a lot as both a running back and a receiver, where he combined for 338 yards and three touchdowns.

LONG BEACH MOST MAJOR CREDIT CARDS ACCEPTED

The Pioneers rushed for 1,032 yards last season but didn’t have anyone get over 350 yards, which was achieved by Galan. Expect the running game to be vastly improved with juniors Manny Rivera, whom Veach says will be the team’s top running back, Tytus Simmons and Jose Soto plus sophomore Christian Rodriguez leading the way. Rodriguez had a breakout game last season against John Glenn when he rushed for133 yards on seven carried and scored on a 45-yard burst. When he’s not rushing the ball, Rodriguez, who Veach believes can be the best player in the league, will be one of many slot plays catching the ball. “He’ll be moved around a lot,” Veach added. “We want to hand [the ball] off to him and we want to throw to him.” Artesia will have more depth in the slot than at wide receiver but still, seniors Jason Latchison-Bullard, Richard Randall and Gaskin are the top throwing threats. The offensive line, which struggled last season, returns four players in senior right tackle Daniel Hernandez, who was the team’s defensive player of the year last season, junior left tackle Lene Lauti, junior center Fidel Palomo and junior right guard David Garibay. The left guard spot remains open with senior Tionte Woods and juniors Nick Hernandez, Wvaldo Juarez and Jorge Torres in the mix. “Last year and the year before, it seemed like to score, we had to put 12 to

like sanctions from the NCAA in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal, I’m still in shock. Not because the university was banned from playing in a bowl game for four years, dinged for a monster $60 million fine or had scholarships reduced. I’m still in shock that the late Joe Paterno, once the NCAA’s Division I winningest coach, is no longer that. Now, don’t get the wrong idea. I don’t defend Paterno

Three Men Arrested After Norwalk Shooting, Weapons, Ammo Recovered By Randy Economy

S

uspects identified as Chris Gilbert Ambriz, Brandon Gilbert Ambriz, and Salvador Hernandez Three suspects have been arrested in Norwalk in a shooting that also resulted in confiscation of weapons and ammunition. The incident took place on Tuesday after a 16-year-old Hispanic female and a 47-year-old Hispanic female were the victims of an Assault With A Deadly Weapon when “unknown suspects shot at them.”

FOOTBALL PREVIEW

Continued from page 12 15 plays together because we would catch the ball and get tackled [immediately],” Veach said. “We were getting yards at a real short clip. This year, I think we have a lot more threats on the outside and a lot more talent athletically.” DEFENSE As much as the offense struggled last season in the first part of the season, the defense had troubles all season long. Only once did the Pioneers hold an opponent to under 10 points and the team allowed over 40 points seven times, including a stretch of six straight games. This season, Veach will switch to a 4-3 defense. The line will be anchored by Lauti and Hernandez most of the time with Garibay, Juarez and Torres, among others, being rotated in and out. The secondary will be anchored by Simmons, who played one of the outside

OPINION

Continued from page 12 remaining silent when he was initially made aware of what that monster had done to those young children. Yes, he had the right to stop the criminal acts of Sandusky a long time ago and I wish he had. Like most college football fans, I grew up idolizing coaches like Paterno, Barry Switzer of the University of Oklahoma and Bobby Bowden of Florida State University, who now needs 32 wins to become the NCAA’s Division I winningest coach. But, to vacate the 111 victories from 1998-2011 was not the right punishment. Paterno did not play any ineligible players, either with or without his knowledge. Paterno did not have any players receive gifts, money, bribes, etc. like Reggie Bush of the University of Southern California did not too long ago. Paterno did not have his players cheat during an online exam like Florida State University did in 2006 and 2007. Paterno did not have players

Norwalk Sheriff’s Captain Patrick Maxwell said the shooting occurred at 8:25 PM, at the intersection of Claressa Avenue and Mapledale Avenue in Norwalk and that “neither victim was injured.” Maxwell said that Norwalk Deputies obtained a description of the suspect vehicle which was broadcast to other patrol units in the field. “At approximately 10 PM, deputies located a vehicle matching the description at a local motel, located in the 14700 block of Firestone Boulevard in La Mirada,” Maxwell said.

Deputies detained three male adults who were near the vehicle. Investigation led deputies to recover a firearm and ammunition possibly used in the crime. Arrested where Norwalk resident Chris Gilbert Ambriz, age 31, Brandon Gilbert Ambriz, 18 also from Norwalk and Salvador Hernandez, 37 and a resident of Chino. They are being charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon-Firearm and booked at Norwalk Sheriff’s Station, in lieu of $50,000 bail.

linebacker spots last season, Soto and junior Anthony Roldan. Soto had 41 tackles last season, tops by all returning players. The top linebackers will be LatchisonBullard (30 tackles last season), on the inside, Randall and senior Chino Intal, who will occupy one of the outside positions. “I think we’ve simplified things,” Veach said. “I think a lot of times in the last couple of years we weren’t confident in our personnel. We tried to make the perfect calls and run the perfect defense every single week for the team we were playing. This year, we focused on, ‘this is the defense we’re going to play’. It’s not going to be very complicated but the kids are going to know exactly what they have to do on every single play.” SCHEDULE The schedule seems to favor Artesia in the early going as its first four opponents did not make the playoffs last season. The Pioneers will seek to avenge a 28-7 loss to Huntington Park and a 54-14 setback to Whittier. San Juan Hills is coached by

Aaron Flowers, son of former Artesia head coach Norm Flowers. Veach added that San Juan Hills is much like Artesia was last season. Artesia has lost three straight games to Gahr, at least 14 straight to Mayfair, three straight to Norwalk and four straight to La Mirada. The homecoming game will be against Norwalk. The last time the Pioneers hosted the Lancers on homecoming, it was a 35-0 win on Oct. 13, 2006. Getting to the playoffs will be a little tougher for the Suburban League as now the top three teams will get automatic berths instead of the top four. “There are a lot of wins on our schedule that are out there if we want to take them,” Veach said. “Something that would be big for us is to have a lot of success this year which we haven’t had the last couple of years. The playoffs are a possibility. If we can get through that tough stretch and can pull a couple of wins out of there, I think that will give us a roll towards the end of the season.”

receive tattoos in exchange for pieces of memorabilia like Ohio State University did in 2010. All Paterno was guilty of is not manning up and telling the police that Sandusky had abused children. How does that constitute vacating his victories? In fact, what constitutes the NCAA taking away victories from a coach or a program? Anything and everything? No. I didn’t realize that remaining silent could cost a coach victories. Now I wonder if every coaching victory is legitimate because there are coaches and programs out there that cheat, but have not been caught yet. There’s that word again-cheat. Paterno did not cheat. He just remained silent. Penn State did not cheat. University administrators just remained silent. Woody Hayes, who coached Ohio State University from 1951-1978, punched Charlie Bauman of Clemson University during the Gator Bowl in 1978. That would be the last game Hayes coached but he didn’t have any wins vacated for punching a player. I don’t get it.

Southern Methodist University was placed on the death penalty in 1987 after an investigation revealed, among other things, that players were receiving money. Bobby Collins was the SMU head coach from 1982-1986 before resigning in the wake of the investigation. But all of his 43 victories are still standing and he was never sanctioned by the NCAA. Again, I don’t get it. A coach remains silent and his victories are vacated but another coach can punch a player or boosters can pay players and all that is done is he gets fired? The NCAA needs to determine what can result in victories being vacated. My heart goes out to the families and children who were victims of this disgusting crime. At the same time, I’m saddened to see this happen to someone like Paterno, who was adorned by so many fans. I wish he could have done the right thing and I wish he could still be alive to finally speak up and explain himself. I don’t condone his silence but to take away 111 victories was wrong.

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, this information can be obtained from one of the following two companies: LPS Agency Sales & Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting. com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.
