T

The festivities will feature live music with three bands, and an art exhibit with almost all of the performers and artists connected to La Mirada.

La Mirada to Eliminate Assistant City Manager Position By Tony Aiello To cut costs, the City of La Mirada recently announced it will not fill the Assistant City Manager position left vacant by Kevin Prelgovisk’s retirement last month. Prelogovisk previously served as the City’s Administrative Services director, overseeing the City’s annual budget. That position will remain eliminated as well. City Manager Tom Robinson told us that he does not anticipate the Assistant City Manager will be occupied in the future. The elimination of the position will save the city $136,000 a year; however other city staff members will have to take on a larger workload and additional responsibilities, according to a city statement. Our dig into public records show in 2011-12, Prelogovisk earned $6,280.66

In a strange legal maneuver, the city of Pico Rivera and its law firm, Alavarez, Glasmen, and Colvin (AGC), have refused to turn over documents to the Lamplighter requested under the California Public Records Act pertaining to a contract awarded by the city to a local

on a biweekly basis-roughly $150,000 a year. He also received a $275 monthly car allowance. Former assistants to the city manager, Jeff Boynton and Anne Haraksin will be upgraded to Deputy City Managers, and Personnel Manager Cristina Cota will assume responsibility for overseeing risk management duties, according to the statement. Two members of the City’s finance staff, Judy Quiñonez and Melissa Pascual, have been upgraded to senior accountants, and given additional responsibilities in the supervising of the City’s finances, in Prelgovisk’s absence. “La Mirada lost an excellent assistant city manager due to Kevin Prelgovisk’s retirement, but during these difficult economic times we must seize opportunities to reduce the size of local government,” said City Manager Tom

Weekly Crime Summary

July 30 to August 5, 2012 There were 25 Part I felony investigations conducted by Cerritos Sheriff’s Station personnel last week, down by one case from the previous week. Residential burglaries increased, robberies remained the same, as commercial burglaries, vehicle burglaries and vehicle thefts declined. Patrol deputies handled 290 calls for service last week, down ten calls from the week before. The 2012 weekly average in calls for service now stands at 269. Two robberies were reported. On Tuesday July 31 at 10:27 a.m. a female suspect robbed a bank in the 11900 block of South Street. She was later arrested and charged with multiple bank robberies in Los Angeles and Orange counties. The second case occurred on Sunday August 5 at 10:45 a.m. in the 16300 block of Stony Grove Lane. A knife-wielding male suspect robbed a male victim of a cell phone and vehicle. This suspect was also arrested and charged with multiple counts of

car-jacking/robbery in Cerritos and adjacent cities. Residential burglaries were up from four to 11 last week. Six of the most recent crimes involved open/unlocked doors or windows, two windows were pried open, two were shattered, and a rear door was kicked in. Jewelry, laptop computers, iPads, currency, a handgun and an air conditioner were among the stolen items. The 2012 weekly average in residential bur burglaries is now 4.4. Alarm systems and dogs are the burglar’s worse enemies. Both detect presence, and both alert others to that presence. It is an excellent idea to have at least one or the other! There was one attempted commercial burglary. A parking structure gate was forced open with a vehicle but no loss occurred. The 2012 weekly average in “other structure”/commercial burglaries is 1.9. Vehicle burglaries dropped again from 10 cases to six last week. Four of the cases last week were in high-volume commercial parking lots. Three were SUVs, and a GPS unit was taken in one incident.

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 again from two to one last week. A Toyota was stolen from a high-volume commercial parking lot. The new 2012 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 3.3. How are you protecting your vehicle? Do you have a steering wheel locking device or is your vehicle equipped with tracking capabilities? Any form of additional security is better than none at all!

Essential Strategies for Your Personal Safety Robbery: Although street robberies are rare in our area, they do happen and are preventable. Here are some tips to help you prevent becoming a victim. Avoid Walking Alone at Night. Use well-lit roads. Walk near the curb - away from shrubbery where someone could be hiding. Walk against traffic, so that cars cannot surprise you from behind. Keep an arms length away from strangers. If you think someone suspicious is approaching you or following you, cross to the other side of the street and head for the nearest public place. Be Familiar with Your Surroundings. Giving the appearance of not paying attention and not being alert is what suspects look for in a victim. Walk briskly and with confidence. At Night, Avoid Vacant Lots, Alleys. RELEASE THE PURSE. Do not risk personal injury.

OPINION

How Far Will the Cerritos City Council Go? By Brian Hews

publisher@cerritosnews.net

T

here is an oftenused concept in advertising called the “Thin Market Advertising Strategy”. Basically, the concept says that a company selling a product that is not often bought-refriger-

Brian Hews Publisher

ators, washer/dryers, one-time event tickets-must constantly advertise so when a person finally decides to buy those goods, that company has been in front of them so often that they will buy from them. That is why you see Target, Sears, JCP, Macy’s, Best Buy, Kohl’s Wal-Mart, and all other retailers in your newspaper every Sunday. They are well aware of the Thin Market Concept. They never cut back on advertising-even during hard economic times-because they know you can’t cut your way to profits; you have to advertise to increase revenues. According to Cerritos officials, ticket sales for the CCPA for the 2010-2011 season was $4,634,318; for the 2011-2012 season it was $3,825,119, a drop of more than $809,000 or 19%. According to CCPA Executive Director Dianne Cheney, they cut the print/radio/cable advertising budget for the 2011-

2012 season. The Thin Market Concept dictates that sales will drop and they did, a whopping 19%. Fast forward to this budget session for the 2012-2013 season. If Cerritos Council did their homework, they should have known about the decline in sales at the CCPA. But council, in its’ Barrows initiated collaborative effort to throw Los Cerritos Community News under the bus for truthfully reporting his assault on resident Jay Gray, spent twenty minutes out of a ninety minute budget debate on the print budget, and then inexplicably cut the print ad budget in the face of those declining sales. I am sure that the staff at the CCPA was quite disappointed when they heard Pulido and Barrows vote to cut the print ad budget with Pulido saying, “inclusive of the CCPA budget”, but they are good soldiers and will go along with any Couc-

Cerritos City Hall nil decision, no matter how myopic or uninformed. Given this action, we now have no way of knowing how far the Barrows-led council will go to silence opposition or debate, even taking action to hurt sales of the venerable CCPA. If they are unafraid to intentionally inflict collateral damage because they were opposed and called out in the Los Cerritos Community News, we could only imagine the other actions they might take when they feel threatened.

she was upset. “VAL,” I said as she entered the office. “What brings you here?’ Her voice was calm as she replied, “ I was visiting a friend and she told me about a problem that has been brewing at ABC School District.” “What problem,” I asked. “I’m talking about the District’s “School of Choice” program. “What the problem?” I asked. “We’ll according to my friend, parents who want to send their children to a specific school in the District are being turned away in favor of children who live outside the school district.” “Well, that’s not right,” I said. “If I remember correctly, former Superintendent Dr. Gary Smuts said students living in Cerritos are first in the School of Choice lottery, then students from the other cities in ABC and then outside inquiries.” “But that doesn’t appear to be happening,” interrupted VAL LYNDER. “According to my friend, all ABC students are lumped together with all School of Choice requests, resulting in their being placed high on the waiting list and often then not do not get into their school of choice while the students from outside the District do. ”That doesn’t seem to be fair,” I said. “Well,” insinuated VAL LYNDER,

DEFENDER OF ALL THAT IS TRUE, the problem is the school board has apparently failed to look into the problem and refuses to address it. When parents go before the Board, the only response they usually receive is indifference. When they take it to the District office, nothing happens.” “VAL, that doesn’t sound right. Are you sure about your facts?’ “You bet I am,” she said, pausing a moment before she continued. “I bet this all boils down to the ADA (Average Daily Attendance) funds the District receives from the state. Those students already enrolled in the District are fine, but those living outside the District who attend ABC means more ADA funding from the state.” She looked at me, her eyes clouding over in anger. “That’s not right.” “Calm down, ”I said. “That’s easier said then done,” she answered, “but I’ll try.” She took a deep breath. “I have something else I want to discuss with you.” “Oh, what’s that,” I asked. “It has to do with teachers discriminating against students whose parents who have a different ethnic background.” VAL, “ I said. “That’s a serious accusation.” “I know,” she said. “But according to

bash conservatives and Republicans. This incident happened two months ago. Yet in the August 3rd issue of the CN, Hews once again goes after Barrows, including the City Council, suggesting that the City Council “lacks fortitude” by not punishing Barrows. To support his case, and apparently after considerable research, Hews provides examples of local governments in other jurisdictions which have disciplined one of their colleagues. He says “there are many more but you get the picture”. Unfortunately, I do get the picture. Hews is fixated on this incident and apparently won‘t stop pushing his agenda until Barrows is punished to his satisfaction. Based on the extensive CN coverage of the incident, one would think that Barrows committed a felonious assault deserving of state prison. In his July 13th letter, Fuentes accused the City Council of a conspiracy and coverup. What conspiracy and what cover-up? Where is the evidence to substantiate this charge? He wonders if “Barrowsgate will be the downfall of a Cerritos City Council that appears to be in collusion with Barrows to lie, deny and get by?” He accuses Barrows of having anger issues. Maybe Hews and Fuentes should look in the mirror. Gary Lee Cerrtos Resident

Daily injections of insulin are needed. The exact cause is unknown. Type 2 diabetes makes up most of diabetes cases. It most often occurs in adulthood, but teens and young adults are now being diagnosed with it because of high obesity rates. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it.

LAWSUIT

Continued from page 1 firm. AGC indicated that the city is “not permitted to disclose” thirty four pages due to the “deliberative process privilege” established by Government Code Section 6255, citing Wilson v. Superior Court (1996) 51 Cal. App. 4th 1136. The deliberative process privilege (known as ‘executive privilege’ under federal law) protects materials reflecting deliberative or decision-making processes. The key question in every case is “whether the disclosure of materials would expose an agency’s decision-making process in such a way as to discourage candid discussion within the agency and thereby undermine the agency’s ability to perform its functions.” The Lamplighter consulted with its attorneys on the matter and answered the city’s refusal, with several cases cited for disclosure, but the city continued to withhold the documents. The Lamplighter’s attorneys wrote, “The documents requested in the present case are primarily email communications between a company that participated in the City of Pico Rivera’s competitive public bidding process and public officials of the City. The request seeks documents generated prior to the public hearing and decision of the City Council. You (Pico Rivera) have asserted that such communications, which are ordinarily not permitted at all in a competitive public bid situation, are subject to the deliberative process privilege. According to Government Code §6255 all communications that were distrib-

uted to a majority of the members of the Council by any bidder for consideration prior to the public hearing are disclosable public records and are not subject to the deliberative process privilege. The city indicated in their second refusal letter that they had released all documents requested because the Lamplighter had requested the documents prior to the public hearing. But at the time of the second letter the contract had been awarded to the local firm effectively voiding the deliberative process privilege. The Lamplighter’s attorney’s cited the fact that the award of the contract was complete and that the exemption set forth in Government Code Section 6255 did not apply because it was overridden by the provisions of Government Code 54957.5 and applicable case law which states, “Notwithstanding section 6255 … agendas of public meetings and any other writings, when distributed to all, or a majority of all, of the members of a legislative body of a local agency by any person in connection with a matter subject to discussion or consideration at an open meeting of the body, are disclosable public records under the California Public Records Act, and shall be made available upon request without delay “There is simply no legal basis for withholding the requested documents,” said Lamplighter attorneys. But the city still refused. The Lamplighter has hired Kelly Aviles to file the Petition for Writ of Mandate, which seeks a court order compelling Pico Rivera to comply with its obligations under the California Public Records Act. The case will be filed downtown, where the case should be assigned to

Robinson. “I am confident that the employees involved in these adjustments to La Mirada’s ongoing downsizing of staff will perform their new duties very well.” Boynton joined the La Mirada staff in 2001. As assistant to the city manager, he performed a broad range of administrative duties and special projects including assisting with the Stage Road underpass project on Valley View Avenue-the largest capital improvement project in La Mirada’s history scheduled to begin before the end of the year. Haraksin has been with La Mirada since 2000. In addition to her prior role in the past as assistant to the city manager, she oversees La Mirada’s public safety program-which is the largest budget in the City. Cota has served as Personnel Manager for La Mirada since 2007 and is responsible for all aspects of the City’s personnel operations. Quiñonez began working for La Mirada in 2003 and has been responsible for all redevelopment agency finances and transportation funding. Pascual also began her duties with La Mirada in 2003 and is responsible for all City funds, and preparing a variety of annual financial reports. During the past four years, La Mirada has reduced its number of full-time employees from 97 to 70, a reduction of 27 percent. Further efforts to reduce full-time staffing are expected to result in the loss of approximately four more positions by the end of December. The statement went on to say that

part-time staffing has also been significantly reduced. Retirement benefits have been reduced for new employees, and health benefits have been modified for some employees. Additional changes in the City’s benefits structure are currently being considered. The city declared a fiscal emergency this past February 14th claiming then that “anticipated revenue growth and recent cuts may not be enough to prevent deeper and more severe cuts to essential services that the community relies on for its health and safety.” The city also claims that it has identified $67,250,193 that is needed for infrastructure repair and replacement. The recent fiscal declaration paved the way for the City Council to recently approve placing a sales tax increase measure on the ballot this November, the first in the city’s history. If approved, the one percent increase would last for five years.

he coaching carousel continues at Cerritos as Darin Owens becomes the school’s sixth head coach since 2006. Owens replaces Shonyta Pouncey but brings a very impressive resume as he spent the last four seasons coaching at Hillcrest High School in Idaho Falls, ID, posting a 27-7 record and winning a state championship in 2008. Before that, Owens coached at Northgate High School in Walnut Creek (2007), Martin Luther King High School in Riverside (2001-2005) and Wasco High School (2000). Owens went to M.L.K. in the second year of that school’s existence and in 2005, won an Ivy League title. “I’m excited about it,” Owens said. “This is definitely a challenge here. It’s much different than at Hillcrest or Northgate or King or Wasco. Every place has its own different situation that you’re going to have to deal with. This one here-it’s just been such a long dry spell.”

“Of course you have your X’s and O’s and you have your coaching,” he continues. “You have to have good heart and you have to have administrative support. That stuff is all there too. But really the cornerstone of the program is based upon those three principles.”

OFFENSE Cerritos scored only 49 points in 2011

but 20 were scored in the first game against Gabrielino. Over the next nine games, the Dons were blanked five times. Owens brings with him the double wing offense, much like the one operated by fellow Suburban League foe Norwalk. While most of the positions aren’t set, there are some leading candidates in almost every spot. The top two who are battling for quarter quarterback are junior Lamar Crowder and sophomore KiJon Washington, both newcomers with the latter holding the early edge as the opening day starter. The backfield will be paced by seniors Eric Hall and Nicholas Lee, both of whom were wide receivers last season. Lee will be more of a fullback this season. While the offense has no wide receivers, other members who figure to touch the ball will be seniors Trevor Burgess, Brandon Choung, Aaron Smith and juniors Bobby Nam and Anish Patel. “It’s a strong running offense,” Owens said. “We’re probably going to run the ball 90 percent of the time and it has a lot of misdirection to it. It’s a very good power running game.” “My vision plan, really, is three to five years,” Owens said. “This first year is to get fundamentally sound. That’s the most important thing. And then instill our basic offense which is the double wing. From there, we’ll start to add extra stuff to it.” Only two players return on the line-senior left guard Nick Avila and junior center Ivan Aguilar. Owens said that senior Alex Price is in the mix for one of the three open spots. “It’s wide open right now, which is really typical of our offense,” Owens said. “It’s not a huge concern at this point in time. In the next couple of weeks it will all come together. We have a lot of kids that are all at the same level.”

DEFENSE Again, most of the positions have yet to be determined but the leading candidates for the defensive line are Price and junior Justis Mendoza. Defensive coordinator Jason Anderson says Price has a lot of size and speed while Mendoza has a lot of balance. Choung, who was a linebacker last season, moves to the secondary to join Nam and Smith while Patel moves from the secondary to one of the outside linebacker positions. Lee will be an inside linebacker while Burgess and Masseh Yakkuby will also be linebackers. “We’re still in the inception phase,” Anderson said. “I’m looking for as many guys to rise up and be featured. We have

a lot of young guys who are learning the system new. So, one of the things that may happen is they may start at one place but they may switch before league.”

SCHEDULE Cerritos will be in the friendly confines of Hanford Rants Stadium for the first three games and four of the first five and will face three playoff teams from last season before its bye week following the sixth game. Buena Park and Ocean View are new opponents and the Dons hope to stop a six-game losing streak to Gahr. Cerritos has a good chance to go 2-0 in the Suburban League. The last time Bellflower came to Rants Stadium, Cerritos came away with a 12-7 win. The Dons also hold a 9-5 mark against John Glenn since 1998, the best against any league team over that same time. Homecoming is against Artesia and the last time that happened against the Pioneers, the Dons were victorious. “The only thing I’ve done is you do your homework,” Owens said of his schedule. “But they’re all good opponents. Everybody is going to be a challenge for us. Right now, I’m not concerned with the schedule. All I’m concerned about is our guys just getting better at their spot every week. As we do that, the wins will come. “The past is the past,” Owens later added. “I could care less about the past. All we care about is the present. As of today, we have a goal to make the playoffs. Whatever that takes, that is our goal. Will we attain it this year? That would be a pretty, darn positive huge feat right there. That has to be our final vision point.”

ith the San Gabriel Valley League earning two automatic berths to the playoffs, Gahr knew it had no margin for error last season. Sure, head coach Greg Marshall was confident his team could go 5-0 during the nonleague portion, but his team needed to win at least eight games to advance to the postseason. Things were looking good early in the league opener against Paramount until returning junior wide receiver Christian Pabico injured himself after scoring the only touchdown for the Gladiators. Gahr went on to lose 23-9, then fell to Downey by 30 points the next week. “That was the one for us,” Marshall said. “We just didn’t play very well. We held them down point-wise but we shouldn’t [have lost]. Then we lose our quarterback at the end of the game. Before we could get ourselves back together so we could play Downey, we played our worst defensive game. In two weeks, our season was over.” This season, the Gladiators are once again stacked with enough talent to challenge Dominguez for a league title. In fact, some could say the Gladiators are even better than last season.

OFFENSE Gahr scored at least 47 points in four of its five non league contests. But in its three losses, it couldn’t score more than 21 points. The new signal caller in the system is senior Caleb Baumann, a transfer from Downey Calvary Chapel. Offensive coordinator Jon Nielsen is even saying that he could be better than the record-breaking brothers of Corey and Casey Nielsen of not too long ago. “He’s probably going to be a little bit better than what we’ve had,” Nielsen

said.”He’ll probably be the best one we’ve had since Corey and Casey just because of what his arm strength is. Obviously we’re doing some different things with our offense. The main thing is he can throw a fastball.” Baumann will have a plethora of wide receivers to go to and Gahr’s best set will be when there are five receivers and no running backs on the field at any given time. Pabico, who caught 19 passes for 220 yards and scored four touchdowns, is one of Gahr’s top threats along with seniors Steven Clancey, Ricky Ellis, Patrick Enewally, Kendren Pitchford and Jahzay Welch, a transfer from Tesoro High School who had to sit out last season, and sophomores Andre Casillas and Will Latham. Nielsen says that Pabico is his “pride and joy” and that “he’s going to be something special this year”. Enewally has already received several scholarship offers during the spring including the University of Arizona. “Anytime you lose two prolific receivers in Dwayne [Washington] and Delshawn [McClellon], who played for three years in the offense, you lose that comfort level of just having them knowing what to do,” Nielsen said. “It didn’t really matter who was playing quarterback with them. This year, it’s going to be blue-collar. We have a lot of guys who are very solid and are above average high school athletes. With this system, it makes good players great, it makes great players exceptional and it makes exceptional players a story.” The top running back is senior Alex Kline, who carried the ball 15 times for 150 yards and scored twice last season. Joining him in the backfield will be Taylor Williams. The line will be occupied by senior left tackle Eden Arce, senior left guard Brandon Penesa, senior center Louis Baeza, senior right guard Maurice Davis

and either Troy Orozco or Kyle Taylor at right tackle.

DEFENSE Gahr’s defense held three opponents to single digits but struggled in league action, including yielding 32 points to a Lynwood team that went 2-8. This season, the line will be held down by returning seniors Jerell Abelleria Neri and Tyler Hamilton along with Dante Freeman. Enewally, Latham, Pitchford and senior Dajon Curtis are the top cornerbacks with Kline and fellow seniors Trent Coates, Jacob Munson and Sahid Sesay as the top safeties. Senior Caleb Jackson, junior Raymond Mosley and Williams will lead the linebacking crew. “Defensively, we’re about as strong coming into the season as we’ve been as far as returners,” Marshall said. “A lot of the kids played as sophomores. That’s why we played better on defense last year.”

“It depends on our quarterback situation,” he said. “If the new kid comes in and he performs and he’s eligible. It really doesn’t matter the when, the who and the where for us. It’s basically if we’re healthy and the quarterback plays well.”

Gahr will be put to the test early with Moore League combatant Lakewood on the docket. After that comes three relatively easy games which Gahr will certainly not take lightly. The fifth game will be another road test, this time against La Habra, a semifinalist last season. Although Gahr has dominated the ABC School District recently, it only holds a 14-11 record against Artesia and Cerritos since 1998. Gahr’s homecoming game will be against Lynwood, the second in five years against the Knights. Marshall says the fate of Gahr’s journey to a potential playoff spot depends on its top newcomer.

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 a 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 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 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case NOTICE OF TRUSTEE'S SALE TS No. 10-0148958.
