Cerritos City Council approves study to contract out hourly employee positions

Gonsalves custodian receives good samaritan award

UNION SAYS IT WAS “BLINDSIDED”.

n a dramatic request, Cerritos City Councilman Bruce Barrows called for a comprehensive study on the feasibility of contracting out dozens of hourly employees, including the elimination of some city employee pension plans. Barrows is calling his proposal an “effort to trim the cities growing budget problem.” The veteran city councilman is a strong vocal critic of the Cerritos Employees Association (AFSCME Local 619), and made his study request at the end of Monday’s meeting under city council reports. A spokesperson for the employees union called Barrow’s proposal a “clear violation of the California Open MeetiIn a dramatic request, Cerritos City Coun[See CERRITOS Page 12]

The ABC School Board presented Robert Lopez, a custodian at Gonsalves Elementary School, a Good Samaritan Award at its May 3 meeting. Lopez was working in the schoolyard when he noticed a homeowner, adjacent to the school grounds, on a ladder trimming a tree in his yard. When he looked up a few minutes later the man was gone. Suspecting something had happened he walked over to where he last saw the man and found him lying on the ground unable to move. He called school authorities that called the paramedics. Lopez stayed with him until help arrived. The victim had fractured his neck and any sudden movement on his part could have been fatal. Broad President Maynard Law made the presentation. With Lopez was his wife and members of his family and Gonsalves Principal Robert Benko.

Although Wunderley left the coaching scene following the 2002 season, he is set to retire from his administrative duties on July 1. Wunderley, who has been associated with V.C. for 38 years, was set to retire at the end of the 2009-2010 school year but decided to stay when former Mike Wunderley superintendent Kevin Kaemingk left last year. He has been the school’s principal of Student Services since 2007. “I love my job; I like the people I work with and I like the community,” Wunderley said. “I like everything about it. It’s just that I’m tired of having a schedule. I have grandchildren on the East Coast who I only get to see when I [See WUNDERLEY Page 8]

Artesia Council recognizes paramedics for saving two year old On the morning of Mar. 1 Engine Station 30 paramedics responded to a call in Artesia for a two-year old girl who was choking on grapes. Upon arrival, Lakewood Sheriff Deputies were performing obstructed airway procedures in an attempt to clear her air passage. When Squad 30 arrived the patient was in respiratory arrest, very cyanotic and no pulse was felt. It was unclear if she was also in cardiac arrest. Paramedics Jose Tovar and Ozzie Cuevas quickly went to work with back blows and chest thrusts. When this did not clear her air passages they used a lar-

www.loscerritosnews.net

yngoscope, Magill forceps and suctioning to successfully remove the grapes lodged in her air passage. Following the grapes being removed, the medics were able to see good chest rise and fall with the use of the BVM. An oral airway was placed and they continued to breathe for the patient. Pulses were detected; skin signs improved rapidly from blue to pink and the patient began breathing on her own. Medics continued to assist in her breathing and monitoring all of her vital signs while base contact was made. The patient was transported to La Palma Hospital with Lakewood sheriffs leading the way, blocking intersections for the ambulance. Others involved in the lifesaving action were firefighter Armitage and Engineer Mills as well as the Lakewood Sheriff deputies and Care Ambulance.

Concern expressed about low return on La Palma's General Fund revenue By Larry Caballero La Palma Councilmember Steve Hwangbo expressed concern during the Cash and Investment report over the paltry 5 percent return on the City’s General Fund revenue at the May 3 city council meeting. City Manager Dominic Lazaretto explained that the City invests in the state’s local investment fund (LAIF) that has paid a reasonable return in the past and has lower management fees than other investments, but he agreed that the City should look into other investment strategies for the future. Several residents shared concerns with the proposed Fiscal Year 2011-12 General Fund Budget, but Rodriguez assured them that it is still in the preliminary stages. “This is just the beginning of the journey.” He encouraged residents to attend public meetings on May 17, Jun. 2 and Jun. 21 when the Draft Budget will be delivered, an informal Q & A on the Budget will take place and the Final Budget will be adopted. The city was presented a Proclamation from representatives from the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) to honor the successful completion of Measure M at the May 3 meeting of the city council. The tax amounted to more than $3 million that La Palma was able to use to “improve the quality of lives for our residents and businesses,” said Rodriguez. Concern About City Trees Most residents would rather stay at home on a weeknight rather than attend a local city council meeting, but not in La Palma.

execute contracts for removal of trees in the frontage medians on Houston Avenue and Walker Street came up for discussion. La Palma Public Works Director and City Engineer Jeff Moneda explained to the Council that curbs and gutters in the area were in need of significant repairs because of the tree roots. “The roots can also cause potential damage to the water and sewage lines as well,” said Moneda. Pine cones landing on residents’ heads as they take their morning strolls and sap on cars were additional issues, as well as maintenance and on-going repair costs. The residents who lived closest to the trees shared the most complaints while neighbors in adjacent streets wanted the trees to remain. One neighbor said the trees serve as a windbreaker and help stifle freeway noise while also “sucking up” carbon dioxide. Another neighbor requested that an environmental impact survey be done before any action is taken, while another described the trees as “majestic” that helped to raise property values since property owners would enjoy the beauty and grandeur of the trees. Residents also described, “Waking up in the morning, drinking a cup of coffee, watching the birds, and admiring the trees before heading off to work or school.” One concern expressed by all of the neighbors is what kind of tree, if any, would replace the existing pine trees. “Whatever the Council decides tonight,” said one resident, “there will be consequences.” Rodriguez stated that the landscape plan would be established in Phase 2 of the repair, and that no selection was being recommended that night. When one resident told the Council that his mother-in-law almost slipped and “killed herself” on a fallen pine cone, another said tthere was always a possibility of slipping on something while walking. “She could have slipped on something else. That is one price we pay for being closer to nature.” Another concern voice was about the

Gary Chomiak, 56th AD and President of the Hubert H. Humphrey Democratic Club Re: April 28th Cerritos City Council Meeting Councilman Jim Edwards' gushing over "Our Great City Staff" was exposed as empty, patronizing and self-serving. Edwards' cliche "My buttons are busting with pride over our city staff" rang hollow as the ersatz backbone he claimed for "making tough decisions for Cerritos" while lugubriously feigning regret at siding along political lines. Republican activists painted an antiunion picture of "Union Bosses" and "Green-Shirted outsiders" storming the council meeting. I thought it was more like the Dumbo Ride at Disneyland three Big GOP Elephants going up and down under the lash of the 'Ring Master' Art Gulluci, around in circles, getting nowhere. I understand wealthy Carol Chen’s cold shoulder to working people but not Barrows, beneficiary of his wife's Union Benefits and Pay and Edwards' 35 years of Union work, benefits and retirement, PLUS their council perks and pay, based on Union wages/benefits. Once again the City Manager stacked the deck by putting the Union agenda item after numerous awards, appointments and non-priority business, knowing that residents would pack the council chamber to be heard, some with children or having to work the next day were unable to participate. That trick ‘thins the herd’, still the overwhelming majority of residents supported continuing Union negotiations. Our Congressmember stood for more than three hours waiting to speak when it was within Mayor Carol Chen’s power to move the agenda item up, an arrogant, disrespectful display to say the least. I think it’s high time we leave “Fantasy Land” and elect a council majority willing to reject reactionary political dogma and lead us into tomorrow. Chris Fuentes Cerritos Resident

AFCSME Union Representative accuses city of negotiating in bad faith Accuses City Councilman Barrows of slander. Before we even sat down at the table, city management played games by not providing items the union legally has the right to ask for. Such as, job descriptions for employees positions represented and policies that affect employees. Letters back and forth with management pretending not to understand very simple requests ensued. When the team compiled the proposals, our mistake was in thinking that by putting each proposal in contract language format we were being helpful. Instead, for every one proposal, management derived 5 line items to portray as demands before we even sat at the table. Reviewing our files: we are not children; we are adults who should have every right to view our files. Any mention of removing an item, in our actual proposal, not the management derived interpretation you are quoting, we were hoping for the right to remove whatever the law states as not supposed to be part of our files. Positions: the actual proposal asked for a position equity process and the positions listed were examples of positions to be reviewed. All were invited to add their positions but many members were fearful of retaliation. Stage crew: lower position are being asked to do higher level positions without being paid for serving in that position. All the other items you (Los Cerritos Communty News) refer to are not our proposals at all. You used management propaganda instead of our actual proposals. Management declared impasse. The mediator came in as part of the process, assisted us with creating a proposal that offered a pension decrease with immediate cost savings instead of future savings management's final had affecting only new hires. The mediator took the change to management, came back in 15 minutes stating that the city is not interested. Like every election, the employees union supported candidates for council.

OPINION and LET TERS This year more employees volunteered because there are internal issues that need to be fixed and employees now understand that speaking with our council members isn't something to fear. Mailers were sent out with positive sup-

port. The{n} Council Member Barrows sent a slanderous mailer out depicting the employees negatively. At that point, any public interaction was to defend the employees reputation and better inform residents of the disrespectful treatment

at the negotiating table. We came to the table with an open mind ready to have respectful discussions and cross off any item considered financial once we had an explanation to provide our members. Once management misrepresented our

proposals in their bullitem, it now seems clear that bargaining in good faith was not a priority for the employees representing management.

Preventing sleep related headache symptoms By Dr. Mark M. Chung, MD, FAASM Headaches are frequently associated with sleep-wake cycle disturbances. Over 28 million Americans are chronically affected with this disorder. Awakening headaches are associated with 4-6% of the population, 18% of insomniacs, and 18-60% of those with sleep apnea, and 21% of those with depression. Headaches occur more commonly among snorers. Obstructive sleep apnea is almost certainly under-recognized in headache populations. Cluster headaches tend to occur with men and are usually one sided on the head and above the eye and/or on the side temple lasting 15-180 minutes, occurring between the hours of 9pm to 10am. Increased blood flow to the brain results in such symptoms. Migraines associated with dizziness, auras and visual symptoms, tend to occur more frequently with women. Sleeping excessively can also result in headaches, especially after alcohol use, and may be consistent with

to be performed to determine sleep breathing disorders, or abnormalities in sleep staging, such as early or excessive Rapid Eye Movement sleep. Blood pressure and heart rate fluctuations during REM sleep staging can contribute to morning headaches and may need monitoring and treatment. Menstrual related headaches tend to occur due to sleep staging disturbances and can usually be anticipated with abortive treatment. Prescription migraine medications prevent the onset of migraines but underlying causes may need to be elucidated. Otherwise, regular sleep, avoiding late meals, and avoidance of triggers may prevent most episodes (excess caffeine, chocolate, and aged meats). Emotional stress plays a role by affecting the blood and sleep staging requiring both medical and psychological interventions. If symptoms persist, consultation and medical tests are recommended.

increased brain blood flow during Stage REM sleep. During Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, vivid and emotional dreams occur, and coincide with increased blood flow to the brain, increased heart rates and blood pressures. This stage of sleep occurs more frequently after midnight and the early morning hours. Eating a large meal within 4 hours of sleep can also result in excess REM sleep. Migraine headaches that are sleep related tend to occur with sleep loss, oversleeping and disorder of the sleep wake cycle (such as with rotating shift work). Short sleepers (< 6 hours/night) and long sleepers > 8 hours/night tend to have an increased incidence of migraine disorder. During a study, a physician should be asking these questions: 1. Bedroom environment, whether ambient light nor noise is present 2. Irregularity of the sleep schedule 3. Medication usage and substances, such as caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine 4. Snoring or witnessed apnea events

The STEMI team had to defibrillate Fred four more times before rushing the comatose man to the cardiac cath lab for an angioplasty. Interventional cardiologist Dr. Omid Vahdat and the Cath Lab team inserted three stents, which successfully opened the arteries on one side of Fred’s heart. But doctors were wary of the potential damage to Fred’s brain. They decided to place Fred, who was on life support, into a state of hypothermia to

Cathy, an administrator for Memorial HealthCare IPA. Later that April afternoon, he was staring at his crossword puzzle and hoping to finally finish it. Suddenly, he began having excruciating chest pains. They continued as Fred started to sweat despite his cold chills. He knew he was in trouble and called his wife on her cell phone, but Cathy was on another call. Their youngest daughter— also an employee of the IPA--happened to be in Cathy's office and answered the cell phone. The next few minutes were critical. Fred asked his daughter, “Where's your mom? I need your mom!” She asked, “What's wrong daddy?” and Fred said he was having chest pain. She responded "Mom is on the way," hung up and dialed 911. Several minutes later, LA County engine 94 arrived at the Gies residence, followed by paramedic squad 45. They saw Fred collapse as they entered the house. The fire fighters had already started CPR on Fred when Cathy arrived on the scene. They defibrillated Fred twice while continuing CPR, as Cathy watched helplessly. The engine captain told her they were doing all they can. “I asked them to take my husband to the heart center in Long Beach, but they told me he wouldn't make it,” Cathy says. “He assured me that Lakewood Regional Medical Center had everything in place to help my husband.” As Fred was

halt the progression of any damage that may have occurred. Three days later, Fred opened his eyes, looked at Cathy and asked, “What happened?” “I honestly don’t have any recollection of the events of that day,” Fred now says. “I woke up on Sunday night in the ICU, and had a brief conversation with the nurses. My mental faculties were good. But I do remember the great medical care I received from the physicians, nurses and staff. They cared for me and listened to me. My doctors and nurses recognized that I probably had experienced more trauma than most heart patients they see. I was told I died probably four times. Without the training, persistence and expertise of the entire team of paramedics and the STEMI team, they would likely be carving my headstone right now.” “A life was saved. I don’t think I need to say much more than that except how proud I am of our team for a job very well done.” said Joseph Badalian, President and CEO of Lakewood Regional Medical Center. “As a firefighter, Fred has been there for so many in their time of need. We’re honored to give back and be there for him.” Fred walked out of the hospital one week to the day after his near-death experience. His chest was tender from the relentless CPR he had received, but had no other lingering effects from his massive heart attack. “It wasn’t my time,” he says. “The paramedics told me they were not going to let me die, not on their watch. And they didn’t. They made professional decisions to get me where I needed to be. Because of them and Lakewood Regional, my life began again.”

8 COMMUNITY NEWS GROUP â&#x20AC;˘ MAY 13, 2011 WUNDERLEY from Page 1 have a vacation.â&#x20AC;? While Wunderley has been in the office since 1999 when he took over as the assistant principal, he is more affectionately known as the Crusaders legendary football coach where he amassed 206 victories as a varsity coach. Wunderley graduated from Excelsior High School in Norwalk in 1964 but never played football there and graduated from California State University, Fullerton in 1969. He actually can thank his wife of 40 years, Letty, for getting him in the V.C. door. Her two sisters were cheerleaders who had boyfriends on the basketball team that advanced to the California Interscholastic FederationSouthern Section Division I-A finals in 1972. Wunderley was asked to take pictures of that game where he met the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yearbook photographer who told him about an opening at the junior high school, now called the middle school. Wunderleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first job at the school was as a walk-on baseball coach but when he interviewed for that position, the school also needed a junior varsity football coach. In addition to his first coaching jobs, he also was a part time geography and U.S. history teacher in 1973 and coached the junior varsity squad for six years before slowly moving up the chain. Wunderley moved to the high school in 1979 where he was finally a varsity head coach in addition to teaching for the next 20 years. He said that nothing he had done in teacher education at CSUF prepared him for the first time he walked into a classroom. Wunderley would be a physical education teacher before later moving to the history classroom. Wunderley can also credit his success on the field to Dick Coury whom he worked with at CSUF as a graduate assistant. At nights, Wunderley would take a football theory class. From that point on, it was all rolling as the Crusaders won a

CIF championship in 1986 and 1985. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can say this for sure, when I started at Valley Christian in 1973, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to be here for 38 years,â&#x20AC;? Wunderley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was not my plan.â&#x20AC;? Wunderley has story upon story about almost every team he coached and almost every opponent he faced. He will constantly bring up the rivalry with Ontario Christian and how important it is to the V.C. community. The Crusaders had lost to Ontario Christian in 1978, so his first game against the heated rivals in 1979 meant something for Wunderley. He recalls that he planned special things for Ontario Christian the week of that game in 1979. He gave his players green wristbands during practice that week and painted the V.C. helmets green. Whatever he did worked as the Crusaders went out and beat the Knights that season. Since then, Wunderley has always dubbed the V.C./Ontario Christian games as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Classicâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a head football coach at Valley Christian without talking about Ontario Christian games,â&#x20AC;? Wunderley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a natural rivalry. The people who built Ontario Christian out in the Inland Empire attended Valley Christian. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been that natural connection forever.â&#x20AC;? Wunderley also talks about the long, grueling trips to Tehachapi for five straight seasons for a postseason game. As if it was right on cue, it would always rain hard the week of and during V.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff games with the Warriors and in 1986, the Crusaders beat them in overtime in the semifinals which put the school in the finals for the first time since 1964. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We scored first [in overtime]; threw a touchdown pass and held them for three downs,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I called a timeout and told my defensive coordinator to go out and talk to them. As he walked towards the huddle, he turned around and walked back. I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what was going

onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? The quarterback went back to pass and we chased him out of the pocket and chased him down at the three-yard line. After the game, I asked my defensive coordinator why he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out there. He said he had heard the two defensive captains say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;they will not score, they will not score. We will stop them hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 1995 team which Wunderley will remember the most because the Crusaders beat Orange Lutheran twice, once in Olympic League action and once for the Division X championship. Both games were won in the final two minutes in what Wunderley called, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Drive and The Drive IIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What [Orange Lutheran head coach] Jim [Kunau] knew about us was the same thing I knew about him,â&#x20AC;? Wunderley recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His team was going to be well prepared. They were going to be more complicated than us; we were pretty simplistic. But bottom line was Valley Christian and Orange Lutheran were well coached teams and well disciplined teams and we were going to go out and play for 48 minutes.â&#x20AC;? Kunau agreed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mike was always known as one of the premier coaches in Southern California, tough fundamentally sound, his teams always played with great spirited passion. When I first started they were the top dog, we were on bottom of the Olympic League they really set the bar high because of Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. He was the dean of So Cal football, he was very well respectedâ&#x20AC;?. The 2002 season will be a memorable one but at the same time heartbreaking for Wunderley. He picked up his 200th career victory against St. Bernard in a 75-28 thumping on Homecoming Night. That season also showcased a powerful running attack and a high octane offense that advanced to their last CIF finals to this point where they hooked up with Carpinteria on a rain soaked, windy night at Santa Barbara Community College. Both teams had their share of miscues but when the clock read triple zeros, V.C. had lost 26-22 with the winning score coming with 34 seconds remaining in the game. A few months later, Wunderley officially retired from the coaching ranks and to this very day, still has not seen the game film of that championship loss, saying he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to know what the team didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do right. Wunderley said he always wanted to involve more people in the football program. He would have a crew of girls from study hall during the last period of the day that would put the striping on the football helmets every Thursday afternoon in the locker room. But when it came to that milestone victory, Wunder-

Wunderley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But more importantly it just means for a period of time, we were able to establish some consistency here. People knew what to expect. Kids who came here to play up from our junior high who had been watching us for two years knew what to expect when they got into our program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always said to teams that if things go right, at some point in time, the coaching staff gives the team to the team,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that in the first game. You have to earn that and build to that.â&#x20AC;? Retiring from coaching football became too emotional for Wunderley to the point where in 2003, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even stand on the V.C. sidelines or sit in the stands. He recalls that when the Crusaders were on the road, he would ask the opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coaching staff if he could stand on their sidelines in the corner by the end zone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a head football coach, especially at a small school, you have a voice,â&#x20AC;? Wunderley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have a voice in the community. When you stop being [a coach], you lose that voice. I was very fortunate that I was still working here, so I still have a relationship with the kids.â&#x20AC;? Wunderley would constantly coin small phrases to motivate his players, like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you play the first five to win the second five so you can qualify for the last fourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the path to the (Olympic League championship) patch, the road to the ringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would hope that I made an impact on students in the classroom as much as I did on the football field,â&#x20AC;? Wunderley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I went into it ever thinking that I would have an impact on a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. I was going to do what I had been trained to do and what I liked to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine not watching Valley Christian play football,â&#x20AC;? Wunderley sums up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Current head coach] Erick Streelman has been very kind and has asked me to talk to the football team every year before the Ontario Christian game, just to talk a little about the history. Last year I did it on the grass, in the dark at Ontario Christian before they went on the field. One of the things I told them, and I meant it was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be or what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing, but I will not miss a Valley Christian-Ontario Christian game as long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m walking and talkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;?

Best home improvements for your renovation dollars Homeowners renovate for two basic reasons: money and fun. Or, more precisely, they undertake home improvements to improve their home's resale value or their enjoyment of their house. The best home improvements, however, are ones that deliver on both objectives. Americans will spend nearly $141 billion on remodeling in the first half of this year, according to Harvard's Joint

resale value and immediate enjoyment. Here are five home improvements from budget-friendly to big budget - that provide noteworthy return on investment (ROI) in terms of increased value and improved enjoyment: 1.

better about living there. 2. Decks Whether you go for wood or composite, adding a deck is a great way to boost resale value, expand your living space and up your enjoyment of your home environment. On average, homeowners who add a wood deck can expect to recoup more than 80 percent of its cost when it comes time to sell, according to Remodeling Magazine's 2009-2010 Cost vs. Value Report. Composite deck additions return about 71 percent at the time of resale. 3. Kitchens It makes sense that the room where most families spend the bulk of their time would be a popular remodel - and one that pays off big in terms of value and comfort. Even a minor kitchen remodel - costing about $21,000 - will return about 78 percent of its value on resale, according to Remodeling Magazine. A major kitchen job, costing around $57,200, will recoup about $41,200, or 72 percent. 4. Baths Whether you're tackling a major job that involves knocking out walls and changing fixtures, or just making cosmetic improvements like upgrading faucets and repainting, remodeling a bathroom goes straight to the heart of our craving for comfort. Americans view their baths as far more than a place to get clean and take care of other necessities. Even if you're not creating a home spa, improving the bathroom is sure to boost your home's resale value and increase your satisfaction with the room. Remodeling Magazine says the average bathroom remodel costs around $16,100 and returns up to 71 percent of that cost at the time of sale. 5. Basement/attic remodel With more families staying put in the homes they have, rather than moving up to larger homes, many Americans are looking for ways to expand their living space while staying in place. Attic and basement remodels are great ways to add usable, livable space at a fraction of the cost of building an addition. The lingering effects of the Great Recession have multiple generations living together under one roof again, and many of these families create bedrooms, bathrooms or even family rooms in unfinished attic or basement space. Everyone appreciates the extra room, and attic renovations and basement remodeling yield resale returns of 83 percent and 75 percent, respectively, according to the Cost vs.Value Report.

CERRITOS SHERIFF’S STATION

Weekly crime summary May 2 - 8, 2011 There were twenty-eight Part I felony crime investigations conducted by members of the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station last week, up from twenty-one the week before. Robberies, residential burglaries, and vehicle burglaries increased while vehicle thefts decreased. Commercial burglaries remained the same. 287 calls for service were handled by patrol personnel, up from 261 the previous reporting period. The new 2011 weekly average in calls for service is now 258. Three robberies were reported. At 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday May 3, a male suspect grabbed a necklace worn by an employee of a fast-food restaurant in the 11800 block of Del Amo Boulevard and struggled with other employees in an attempt to flee. He was successfully detained and arrested by deputies. The second case occurred at 7:20 p.m. the same evening in the 20200 block of Bloomfield Avenue after a male shoplifting suspect fought with loss prevention personnel attempting to detain him. He was also arrested by deputies. On Saturday May 7 at 11:50 a.m. three suspects entered a jewelry store in the Los Cerritos Center and smashed display cabinets. After removing numerous watches, they attempted to escape in a vehicle but a pursuit by Cerritos deputies was initiated that resulted in the arrest of two and the recovery of all the stolen items. Residential burglaries rose from three to six last week with another one attempted. Three of the completed crimes were attributed to open/unlocked doors or windows, and two windows and a door were pried open. Cameras, laptop computers, jewelry, cash, DVDs, TVs, and boots were taken. The 2011 weekly average in residential burglaries remains at 3.5. Unfortunately, most jurisdictions report that a leading cause of residential burglaries is that an occupant leaves a door or window open or unlocked. This provides the burglar(s) with an effortless entry into the home. Avoid becoming a victim and take the brief moments needed to make sure that all doors and windows are secured before you leave. Three commercial burglaries were again reported. Two were closed business where thieves cut a door and pried another. A fitness center locker was also burglarized. Debit cards, credit cards, and cash were stolen. The 2011 weekly average in “other structure”/commercial

burglaries is now 2.8. Vehicle burglaries increased from six to seven last week. Four of the crimes last week were in high-volume commercial parking lots. Six of the vehicles were SUVs. Other items reported stolen included laptop computers, backpacks, surfboards, DVD players, tools, cell phones, purses, GPS units, and a wallet. The new 2011 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 5.3. Visible property left in the passengers compartment continues to be the number one cause of vehicle burglaries. GPS units have become very popular among drivers and thiefs. Don’t leave ANYTHING in your vehicle that wil attract a thief. Vehicle thefts dropped from six to four last week. Two Toyotas, a Honda, and an SUV were stolen from highvolume commercial parking lots. The current 2011 weekly average in this category is 2.5. Regardless of what you drive, consider a steering wheel locking device that serves as a good visual deterrent. It also serves as an additional “insurance policy”.

Smash and grab robbery at Ben Bridge By Randy Economy A popular jewelry store inside a jam packed Los Cerritos Center was robbed late this morning in what in what law enforcement is calling a “smash and grab heist” of high valued watches and other pricy items. The Los Cerritos Center was crowded with thousands of Mother’s Day shoppers when at least three men wearing black hoods walked into the Ben Bridges Jewelry Store carrying sledgehammers, and “just began smashing” and “grabbing” as “fast as they could,” according to witnesses. Less than 20 minutes later, two of the suspects were caught in nearby Bellflower. According to Nicole Noshida with the Public Information Office for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in Monterey Park, a second suspect was caught at Rosecrans and Atlantic. A third suspect is still being sought near the area of Bellflower and Park in Bellflower. Noshida described him as a male black, between 5 ft. 11 and 6 ft. tall, approximately 170 lbs., and wearing blue jeans and a blue “pull over sweat shirt.” Small sledge hammers were used in the crime, and according to Noshida, law enforcement is not saying if the items were recovered. Witnesses that spoke on the condition of “anonymity” reported that they

saw three “hooded men just walked through the mall and walked into Ben Bridges and just started banging.” “It sounded like gun shots. We all just hit the ground and covered our heads,” said an employee inside a nearby cosmetic store. “It was so loud, and scary, and everyone just started running and screaming,” the frightened employee remarked. This was the second time in less than two months that this same jewelry store was involved in a “smash and grab” robbery. No word if the two crimes are connected.The operation of the Los Cerritos Center was unaffected by the robbery, and Ben Bridges was back open for business at around 4:30 p.m. Any information about this crime, you are urged to contact the Cerritos Sheriff’s Department at 562-860-0044

Give up Norwalk Kassandra Caro, who walked Smith getting four hits and seeing a pair By Loren Kopff

Cerritos softball head coach Bob Medina and his first-year counterpart at Norwalk, Isaac Galvez, both had specific game plans heading into last Friday’s key Suburban League tilt that had first place ramifications. But Norwalk’s plan didn’t even have a chance to make an impact in the game, which was easily won by the visiting Lady Dons 13-4. Cerritos clinched a share of the league title, the first time since 2000 that the Lady Dons have won at least a piece of the league crown. That year, the team won the second of its back to back California Interscholastic FederationSouthern Section championships. Medina slightly shook up his starting lineup by inserting junior right fielder Alex Avila, making her first high school appearance, in the number two spot behind hot hitting junior center fielder Sarah Smith. Avila responded with a three-run home run in the top of the sixth inning to cap a seven-run inning. “We know the potential of Alex,” Medina said. “If [opponents] fear Sarah, they should fear Alex. She has the potential of doing that all the time when she’s up to bat. It fits into our plan if we were going to get to this point and we did.” Norwalk’s plan was to start junior

CERRITOS

Continued from page 1 cilman Bruce Barrows called for a comprehensive study on the feasibility of contracting out dozens of hourly employees, including the elimination of some city employee pension plans at Special Meeting of the Council on May 9. Barrows is calling his proposal an “effort to trim the cities growing budget problem.” The veteran city councilman is a strong vocal critic of the Cerritos Employees Association (AFSCME Local 619), and made his study request at the end of Monday’s meeting under city council reports. A spokesperson for the employees union called Barrow’s proposal a “clear violation of the California Open Meeting Law” and charged him with “blindsiding” the rank and file city employees. An “impasse” in contract negotiations for 2011 was declared during the April 28 Cerritos City Council meeting. Talks for a new contract for the 2012 fiscal year will begin in earnest at the end of May. Barrows suggested that a study by management to “possibly go out to bid to contract many line-item employees only makes sense due to the sagging economy and poor business climate.” “Now is the time to look at how we operate our service departments, and how we hire staff for the future,” Barrows said. When asked about what employees he was referencing, Barrows specifically mentioned hourly employees within departments such as the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts Center, the Cerritos Library, city maintenance yard and other

to lead off the game, then yielded a one-out base hit to freshman shortstop Lilianna Herrera, a double to sophomore designated player Bianca Espinoza and a single to sophomore pitcher Kaylilani Minami. In the second inning, Galvez went with junior pitcher Vanessa Venegas to slow the Cerritos offense but it was more of the same. Three more hits and another walk issued to Smith eventually turned into a 4-0 hole for the Lancers (10-14 overall, 7-4 in the league). “I really don’t put that on [Kassandra] in the first inning,” Galvez said. “It’s pick your poison. We put in Vanessa and they got runs off of her as well. Again, it’s the defense. Too many times, we got two outs and we have routine balls [that were misplayed].” Cerritos (17-6, 10-2) added another run in the top of the fourth on a bases loaded single from Minami before the hosts finally got on the board in their half of the frame. Consecutive singles from senior shortstop Anai Zarate and

get on with walks. Norwalk would avoid the game ending due to the mercy rule when it tacked on three runs in the bottom of the sixth without the benefit of a hit. The Lancers had two runners reach on errors and Minami walked Zarate as well as hit freshman left fielder Jenny Vasquez. All three runs, scored with two outs, were unearned. “We always talk about the score being 0-0 all the time,” Medina said. “They felt they were winning. They really didn’t know what the score was.” Cerritos blasted the Norwalk pitching staff to the tune of 17 hits, third most in league action this season and the fourth highest total in all games. Herrera and Minami each went three for five while Espinoza, hitting in the cleanup spot, went three for four with a pair of doubles. The top five in the lineup combined to go 12 for 21 with nine runs scored and 10 runs driven in, three walks and a hit batter. The game was a vast difference from two days earlier

“line item” workers. “We need to cut skyrocketing pension costs, and we need to study every option possible. Nothing should be left on the table,” said Barrows. The request for the review was supported by Mayor Carol Chen and Vice Mayor Jim Edwards. Councilmen Mark Pulido and Joseph Cho voted against the item. Union Says They Were “Blindsided” Erica Zeitlin, spokesperson for AFSCME Local #619, who represents the Cerritos Employees Association, said that they were “blindsided” by Councilman Barrows. Zeitlin said the union would be “absolutely opposed” to “any proposal” to contract out jobs and that Barrows was now “picking a political fight.” She also said Barrows was continuing his “illconceived attempt to under mind the hard working employees who are the backbone of the City of Cerritos.” Zeitlin, also believes Barrows may have violated the California Open Meeting Law for bringing the item forward in the matter in which it was raised. She said the employee union will review their options and will even consider legal action against Barrows and the City for discussing the item publicly. “If the vast majority of city jobs are indeed contracted out, one has to wonder what the actual fiscal savings will amount to,” she said. Asked if Zeitlin or any member of the union negotiating teams plans to contact Barrows about his request or concept, she said she has “no intention whatsoever in calling Mr. Barrows, about anything, period.” “He has picked a fight with the wrong people,” she responded.

Mayor Responds to Critics Cerritos Mayor Carol Chen defended how she conducted the April 28 city council meeting by lambasting critics who spoke out against her and the city council during the past two weeks. “As the Mayor, I made a conscious decision not to change the order of the agenda,” said Chen. During that meeting, which lasted till 2:11 a.m., several residents and union members, including Rep. Sanchez were vocally critically of having to wait “nearly 3 1/2 hours” before the labor agenda item was addressed. Sanchez chastised Chen and the City Council for “making her wait, along with other fellow Cerritos residents” for hours while the city council dealt with “non essential agenda items.” Chen said on Monday that she would never “tell Congress how to conduct their business in Washington, DC” and said it was “inappropriate” for Rep. Sanchez to comment on how she, as Mayor, oversaw a Cerritos City Council meeting. Mayor Chen also said she took exception to critics who called the vote for the Union-City impasse as being based on political party lines. “It was about saving money for the taxpayers, not politics.” Scouts honored The Cerritos City Council also honored four outstanding young people on achieving the rank of Eagle Scout and Gold Star. Both awards are the highest ranking one can achieve in the Boy and Girl Scouts of America. Those given Proclamations for their accomplishments were Esther Wu (Gold Star) and Jegun Ahn, Ronak Joshi, and Mitchell Kim (Eagle Scouts with Troop #1005).

us a one day break and they’re able to adjust and I believe they’re all on the same page with the coaching staff. [Norwalk] had a lot of outside pitches and we chased a lot of high ones [on Wednesday].” The Lady Dons had this past week off before they learn who and where they will play in the upcoming playoffs. The 17 victories are the most since 2004 when they finished 17-15. The season sweep over the Lancers was the first since 2006 and the 13 runs scored were the most against Norwalk since 2005. Norwalk, which got five hits off of Minami from five different players, fell to La Mirada 9-3 this past Tuesday. It wrapped up the regular season on May 12 at La Mirada with the possibility of tying the Matadores for third place. Norwalk still advances to the postseason after missing the playoffs last season. “We just told the girls that the pressure is off for us to get that league title,” Galvez said. “I think they didn’t respond well to it. At this point for us, just ruining La Mirada’s day would be great. I grew up here. I went to Glenn High School, I’m a Norwalk boy and if you live here and play sports, you don’t like La Mirada.”

Linda Sánchez holds telephone town hall meeting with 5,400 constituents On May 10 Congresswoman Linda T. Sánchez (CA-39) continued her commitment to listening to and addressing the concerns of her constituents by holding a telephone town hall meeting with more than 5,400 constituents. “Listening to constituents is the most important part of my job,” Congresswoman Sánchez said. “There are some huge budget cuts being proposed in this Congress, and people want to know how these cuts will affect their day-today lives. They want to know if they will lose Social Security benefits and whether they’ll have to pay more for Medicare coverage. Having the chance to hear from constituents and their serious concerns strengthens my resolve to fight the reckless cuts Republicans are proposing.” During the Tuesday afternoon call, Congresswoman Sánchez spoke to residents from Cerritos, Lakewood, Whittier, Southgate, La Mirada, and Paramount about numerous topics, including Medicare, Social Security, health care, jobs, and the economy. Congresswoman Sánchez answered eleven constituent questions during the hour-long call. Seventy-five constituents who participated in the telephone town hall left voicemail questions, which Congresswoman Sánchez will answer. Congresswoman Sánchez plans to hold more telephone town halls throughout the year.

from shoulder to shoulder. The billion dollar re-do of the iconic I-5 through the tip of eastern Cerritos, into Norwalk and parts of Santa Fe Springs will beginning this week. It is finally getting underway and members of the Norwalk City Council couldn’t be more thrilled. “Finally¸ we are getting this project underway,” said an elated Norwalk vice Mayor Cheri Kelley this past week. Local residents are warned to get ready for bulldozers and street closures, possible traffic nightmares, and lots of dust blowing in the air. When completed (in around four years), experts are predicting that the “New I-5” will be transformed into a brilliant highway “jewel” that should last for well into the later part of this century. The project, which will cost taxpayers more than $1.2 billion dollars by the time the last inch of concrete is dried , will change our driving commute and traffic pattern forever. Construction begins this week This week the first phase of the 1-5 widening project begins with the Carmenita Road bridge widening and reconstruction.

POST OFFICE

went along with the closure the city would not only lose its post office but its postmark as well. “You can’t believe what they tell you,” they asserted. They said the Postal Service is consolidating operations at its Processing & Distribution Centers, which if it occurs in Hawaiian Gardens will mean no post office in the city. Mayor Mike Gomez and Councilmember Barry Bruce said the city was told the Post Office was looking for a smaller site in the city in a cost saving move and planned to be open for business by Oct. 1. They said they were told the new post Office would offer residents the same service they now receive including post office mailboxes, the mailing of letters and packages, and the purchase of stamps. The only difference would be outgoing mail that would be transported to the Los Alamitos Post Office where it would be sorted for distribution. There would be no interruption of delivery service in Hawaiian Gardens.

The Carmentia Road bridge is one of the oldest “over crosses” along the current 5-Freeway. The project will expand the current 2-lane narrow expanse into a modern convenient overcrossing with three lanes for cars in directions, a pedestrian walkway and bike lanes. Yvette Kirnin, P.E., Executive Director Authority Engineer gave an update to the Norwalk City Council on Tuesday afternoon. “We are going to completely change the traffic pattern in Norwalk and this entire area for generations to come. In the long run the community will benefit tremendously,” she said. Over the next three to four years, the I-5 Freeway will be expanded from its current three lanes in both directions into a 10 lane “superhighway” that will include a center carpool lanes, new on and off ramps, the closure of some current exits, the construction of new on ramps. Bulldozers will be removing hundreds of current residences, and businesses that currently are adjacent to the 5 Freeway. This stretch of highway is currently driven by millions of motorist’s week in and week out. “Let’s face it, this part of the freeway is just plain worn out, and it is about time this project is finally going to be started,” said Norwalk Mayor Mike Mendez.

Mendez and the rest of the Norwalk City Council will be holding several “town hall” styles meeting with Cal Trans and project experts to keep “everyone on the same page” and to make sure that “every single question and concern of every resident can be addressed” added Mendez. Councilman Luigi Vernola said he has waited most of his adult life for the 5 Freeway to be expanded. “I am so happy to see this finally get underway.” A thumbnail look into the I-5 Widening Project construction schedule. First, the Carmenita Road Bridge Expansion will begin on May 14th and continue till 2014. Look for traffic delays but no actual street closures on Carmenita Road during the length of the project. The location will affect traffic on Carmenita Road from Alondra Boulevard in Cerritos northbound to Rosecrans Avenue in Norwalk. Also impacted will be the traffic on the I-5 at the Carmenita Road off ramps in both directions, and look for additional traffic tie ups along the Firestone Boulevard Frontage Road. Segment 1 will begin at the I-5 and Alondra Boulevard at the Cerritos, Santa Fe Springs, and La Mirada border in December of 2011. Look for street detours on Alondra Boulevard. Segment 2 will affect the area from Artesia Boulevard to the Coyote Creek. Property acquisition will be completed

January 4, 2013 and construction will start on June 17, 2013 at this critical part of the freeway. Segment 3 will include the reconstruction of the Shoemaker Road Bridge, the Rosecrans Avenue Bridge and the construction of a new “undercrossing” at Bloomfield Road at the I-5. Segment 4 will involve San Antonio Drive, Imperial Highway, and the Orr and Day Road over hang, and construction will begin in this area in August 2012. Segment 5, will begin in May of 2013 and will include the Florence Avenue interchange, north of the Orr and Day over hang at the I-5 and 605 Interchange. Reaching out via the net A website has been established to update residents, business owners, and commuters at www.I-5info.com. A toll free hot line is also available on a 24/7 basis at 1-855-454-6335. The project will have its own Twitter, email and other “social media” outreach efforts that will give live, real time alerts, detour information, on and off ramp closures, and other vital information. They are also developing an iPhone "app" as well to keep commuters and residents “wired in” with real time updates. Next Week: Making room for the new “I-5 Super Highway.”

Acosta said the council could not believe what the postal officials said, She said the consolidations would compromise service to the residents and could jeopardize local postal jobs. The council said the city would be vigilant in its negotiations with the Department. In other business the council continued a decision on a request for $3,000 to make repairs on a mobile home under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Applying for the grant was Rose Aiken who said she needed a new roof and repairs to her ceiling and floor and asked that the swamp cooler on the roof be removed. The applicant was told to find a contractor and get an estimate from him on the cost of the repairs and bring it back to the Community Development Department. Joseph Colombo, Community Development Director said the mobile home was built in 1970 and was purchased by the present owner on Mar. 16. He described it as being in poor condition with major repairs. He said the city inspector looked only at the areas where the applicant had said needed repairs. In other business the council approved six applications for the operation

of firework stands for this years Independence Day celebration. The applicants are Crossroads Multi National Nazarene Church, Way Out Ministries, Hawaiian Gardens Little League and

Hawaiian Gardens Youngsters Celebrate Arbor Day Arbor Day 2011 was a messy, muddy, get-dirty, and all-together fun day for kids in Hawaiian Gardens. On Saturday Apr. 30, Hawaiian Gardens celebrated Arbor

hand in hand with the kids and parents to transform a virtually empty lot into a garden. Council-members Victor Farfan, Reynaldo Rodriguez and Mayor Pro-

day by giving kids an opportunity to plant trees, flowers and vegetables. The kids also got a chance to paint pots and plant flowers to take home as well enjoyed healthy snacks. Members of the Parks and recreation and Public works departments worked

tem Michiko Oyama-Canada were joined by Recreation commissioner Lynn Jones at the Community Garden located at the corner of 226th and Violetta Ave in Hawaiian Gardens. Council-member Farfan delivered the welcome remarks that included

a brief explanation of Arbor day and reminded the kids that the Community Garden belonged to them and the city's way of helping kids learn about healthy fresh foods. He pointed to the peach tree from last year's program that was already producing fruits that should be ready to eat shortly. He was busy throughout the program helping dig holes to plant trees. Councilmember Rodriguez brought an insect eating plant that captured the kid's imagination. He offered a prize to anyone who could come up with the name of

the plant; at the program's end, there were still no winners. Most importantly, Mr. Rodriquez, who is an avid gardener, provided guidance for the kids on how to plant the strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, and watermelons.
