OFFICIAL VOTING RECORDS SHOW GREUEL A REGISTERED REPUBLICAN FOR FOURTEEN YEARS By Randy Economy and Brian Hews randy@cerritosnews.net publisher@cerritosnews.net

A

Los Cerritos Community Newspaper review of the voting history records of the two candidates running in the May 21st election to become the next Mayor of Los Angeles, Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti, has revealed Wendy Greuel that current city Controller Wendy Greuel was registered as a Republican for more than 14 years.

Nothing unusual was found in relation to Garcetti’s voting records. LCCN requested and received both Greuel’s and her rival Councilman Garcetti’s entire voting history from the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters Office in Norwalk on Thursday morning. Greuel has been touting herself as a “staunch Democrat” who has mustered up the support of former President Bill Clinton, US Senator Barbara Boxer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congressman Brad Sherman, Congresswoman Janice Hahn, Congresswoman Judy Chu, and Congresswoman Linda Sanchez. Greuel’s website claims, “Wendy Greuel is a Democrat… and has spent her career fighting for Democratic values and working with Democratic icons including

Walmart Neighborhood Market Opens in La Palma By Brian Hews

n a milestone decision that will affect cities throughout the Southeast Los Angeles County area and the entire region, California’s highest court ruled this week that local government agencies now have the legal authority to ban storefront pot shops within their borders.

The California Supreme Court decision on Monday now gives cities such as Norwalk, Cerritos, Artesia, Lakewood, La Palma and Downey specific “zoning powers to keep out medical marijuana dispensaries.” The ruling by the highest court in California was unanimous and the decision was announced on Monday afternoon. The legal challenge came from a case involving the city of Riverside and an ordinance in that city back in 2010. It is estimated that more than 200 jurisdictions statewide have similar prohibitions on retail pot sales. Marijuana advocates had argued that allowing local government to bar

A

popular gas station in La Palma was robbed at gun point on Monday night and law enforcement officials are asking the community for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons involved. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper was told that on Monday, May 6, at 9:30 p.m., police responded to La Palma Express (aka: 76 Gas Station) to investigate an armed robbery. Witnesses interviews at the scene told investigators with the La Palma Police Department that a man armed with a handgun entered the business, located at 5482 La Palma and “confronted the store clerk.�

The suspect is described as a black male, 20 to 30 years of age, wearing black clothing and a black bandana over his face, brandished a black semi-automatic handgun at the clerk and demanded money from the cash register. Police officials tells LCCN that the suspect “concealed himself� behind the counter, possibly to avoid being seen from the outside of the mini market. The suspect ordered the clerk to lie face down on floor just before fleeing the businesses with approximately $500 in cash. The crime was captured on the store surveillance camera, and members of the media, including LCCN were provided a copy of the image. Anyone with information of this incident is asked to contact the La Palma Police Department at (714) 690-3370.

Accountability Demanded at Heated Cerritos College Trustee Meeting By Kristin Grafft

A

coalition of community residents and leaders stepped forward at the Cerritos College Board meeting on Wednesday, May 2, to demand accountability from board members. Prompted by remarks made by senate faculty leader Bob Chester, many community members have become concerned that the diversity of the student body and the greater community are not being accurately represented. This has led to the formation of “The Right to the College Coalition,” named after the idea and slogan “the right to the city”, which they described as the right to change ourselves by changing the city. Enrique Aranda, the head of the coalition, said, “Our community college is under siege by a senate faculty president and administration that feels untouchable and unaccountable for their pattern and practice of racist micro-aggression and ques-

tionable leadership.” "The school yard bully grew up and is now an administrator at Cerritos College," Aranda said in his remarks. “The main goal of the coalition is to push for the development of a community advisory board that would monitor and advise against future racist or homophobic practices,” a spokesman with the new coalition said. The new group hopes that the establishment of a community advisory board will also lead to “more transparency and improved communication between the community and the college.” Their first request is that Chester be reprimanded by the college president for his now infamous “homophobic institution” comments back in meeting in April. “Maybe cultural sensitivity classes and a public apology could be a start," said Aranda. Aranda also spoke out directly against Trustee President Marissa Perez regarding

to expand the availability of high demand college classes, but at the expense of higher tuition costs. Jami Trinidad, spoke on behalf of the coalition saying, “don’t continue to ask students to continue to carry the burden of California’s budget problem.” More than 200 students, and community residents attended the meeting.

Dealing With Knee Pain?

By Randy Economy

A

Los Angeles man accused in the October 2012 shooting deaths of two women and one man in Downey has been indicted by a grand jury this week. Deputy District Attorney John McKinney of the Major Crimes Division said Jade Douglas Harris, 30, pleaded not guilty to 10 felony counts – three counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder, four counts of kidnapping Jade Douglas Harris for carjacking and one count of felon with a firearm. Harris is accused of fatally shooting Josimar Rojas, 26, Irene Cardenas Reyes, 35, and Susana Perez Ruelas, 34, on Oct. 24, 2012, after responding to an Internet advertisement for a vehicle for sale. The killings were called some of the “most brutal crimes ever conducted in the history of Downey. McKinney said the counts includes four special circumstance allegations of multiple murders, murder during the commission of a burglary, murder during the commission of carjacking and murder during the commission of kidnapping. Harris’ next court date is set for June 27 in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Norwalk Branch, Department F, for a pretrial hearing. The District Attorney’s Office will not decide whether to seek the death penalty until the case moves closer to trial. Rojas and Reyes were killed at United States Fire Protection, a business in Downey, where another woman also was shot and injured. Harris allegedly forced Perez Ruelas to drive him and her teenage son to a nearby home where the vehicle was located. At the residence, Harris allegedly killed Perez Ruelas. The boy, 13, was shot but survived. The defendant was detained by Downey police a day later. The indictment states that since 2003 Harris has prior felony convictions for robbery, attempted robbery and carrying a concealed weapon.

Dr. David Sanchez, another member of the coalition, as well as the representative for the Chicano Roundtable Group, spoke on behalf of the Latino and Mexican-American community. “We need to be more tuned in to the community needs,” he said. Sanchez explained that he believes the reason for Cerritos Colleges’ high dropout rate is because students feel like they don’t fit in with the school’s academic paradigm. “It is reducing the number of MexicanAmerican faculty and we feel that needs to change,” he said. Sanchez mentioned the possibility of bringing in the department of education to address these problems. Another issue raised by the group was their opposition to AB955.

example where switching to area trustee voting went off without a hitch.  Really? Aside from the fact that every student, school, and school board member is in one city, the district gerrymandered itself into such contorted “areas” that all the incumbents kept their seats anyway.  Some incumbents have even been reappointed without an election because they were running unopposed. ABC, which is much smaller, could be even more inventive.  The cities could be chopped up into multiple areas.  Neighbors across the street could be represented by different school board members even if their kids attend the same school.  Such a move would end this public extortion litigation but simply be an unnecessary and even damaging change without a difference. Gerrymandering has become the major weapon of choice in suppressing minority influence in voting and Mr. Ara and friends want to use CVRA as the gun.  Contrary to Mr. Ara’s assertion, I support CVRA which has merit if applied properly, where needed, and to correct abuses.  It should not be co-opted to become a tool for retribution, legalized blackmail, or to give lawyers from Oakland a fat payday.

COMMUNITY VOICES: Sally Havice Weighs In On ABC School Board Voting Lawsuit By Randy Economy (Note: Los Cerritos Community Newspaper is beginning a new feature called “Community Voices” that gives residents, and community leaders the opportunity to weigh in on current important issues facing our area). (ABC Unified School District) The lawsuit filed by MALDEF claiming that the ABC Unified School District has violated the California Voting Rights Act of 2001, has sparked passionate reactions from opinion makers on both sides of the issue. But for one lifelong local Cerritos resident the issue is far more personal. Sally Havice has been one of the most visible and active residents in the area for her entire life. The former California State Assemblywoman, began her political career as like she reminds people “as a proud local Latina, back when there were just a handful of us serving in public office.” The longtime Cerritos College professor got her first taste of elective office more than two decades ago when she captured a seat on the ABC School Board. Havice then went on to represent the area in the State Assembly for six years in Sacramento. Havice, in an interview with Los Cerritos Community Newspaper last week said that “Cerritos may not necessarily dominate the ABC School Board in the future, if the lawsuit is successful.”   “Even if several districts have slices of Cerritos, those sections will also include other communities, and there may be some people from the other parts of those particular districts who are qualified/and or capable  of being elected by both Cerritos and other areas of the district,” Havice said. “  I think it is selling Cerritos voters short to assume that they would only vote for someone who lives in Cerritos.  I find that rather offensive. We haven't really been given much of a choice, and when we have candidates from other parts of the district they haven't had enough money to get their messages out to the voters in our huge at-large district,” she continued. “Walking door to door works when you don't have thousands of doors to knock on, when people know you because they are your neighbors and when you have very little money and must rely on making personal contact,” Havice stressed.   “Many who send out those beautiful slick multicolor mailers never speak to any voters other than a few friends they know from business and/or church and maybe a service club to which they belong.   Many win -- qualified or not -- because they inundate the voters with mail and sometimes cable ads, not because they have canvassed

neighborhoods,” Havice opined. “Some candidates are quite qualified and do well, but that does not mean they are in sufficient contact with the people to truly represent the needs of all children and the wishes we have for all children and students in our communities,” Havice sternly warned Havice also talked said that the allegation that board members elected by district will only concern themselves with their own neighborhoods is “hogwash.”   “Responsible representation means linking up and working with others regardless of whether you represent a district or are elected at-large.  Further, it doesn't make sense to compare a school board of seven to a State Legislature of 120 or a National Congress of hundreds,” she said. “Besides, despite the accusation of a "dysfunctional" legislature and federal representation, I can assure you, from my experience in the State Legislature that there are many conscientious, hardworking, intelligent legislators who accomplish a great deal for their constituency and the State of California as well,” she stressed. “It is a ridiculous assumption to put forth that what legislators do for their districts doesn't impact on other districts or the entire state.  The fact that they don't all walk lock step with each other in agreement does not translate to ‘dysfunctional’ government bodies. It is ludicrous and irresponsible to imply that seven board members who represent seven districts will not agree in most circumstances on what constitutes the best policy for our school district and will therefore become a ‘dysfunctional board,” she said. “To argue that the voters changed from district areas to at-large elections when the largest number of living creatures in the district was dairy cows, second only to crows and meadow larks, just doesn't make sense,” the area native reminded LCCN. “Does this argument of at-large vs. district area representation that is going back and forth have any validity?  No, not really.  Of course it is always positive to share opinions and points of view,” she said. “I'm happy that we have the freedom to do so and that the LCCN finds our words important enough to publish.  However, ultimately,  it’s the law that matters. At this point, the ball is in the school boards’ court; it's up to the school board members we, in this at-large district have elected, to decide whether they will follow the law as it has been presented and determine the establishment of district area elections or to use taxpayer dollars to engage in a costly court battle,” Havice said. “Using precious education dollars intended to continue to provide the quality education for which our ABC School District is known would be, in my opinion, a waste and an unconscionable, irresponsible decision,” she concluded.

Who knows better the needs of our youth than those from our neighborhoods, our cultures, and our families? That’s why we urge the ABCUSD School Board to support district rather than atlarge elections. In 1929, in the darkness and cover of night a group of men met in a barn on the outskirts of Corpus Christi, Texas to discuss the education of their children or lack thereof in the public schools. They knew they were risking their very lives by congregating as they did in then necessary secrecy to discuss what they could not in public. They had no political voice, no voice in their children’s education. Their fear was that their children would be doomed to the same substandard or nonexistent education they had experienced -- the same lack of knowledge and training which had sentenced them to a life of toil in the fields; they wanted more for their children. Some had served in combat in WWI and had seen that there was a better life out there for those who were prepared, for those who were educated. This setting, this experience and this purpose was the birth of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC); this was the birth of a branch of the civil rights movement which would erupt

I would hope that ABC continues to focus and improve scores in our lower scoring areas and continue to provide the resources it can to bridge the achievement gaps.

The bottom fell out of the LM market in early 2007 but we did not statistically see it until the fall reports came out. We are currently in the eye of a Category 4 storm. We did have a 14.3% appreciation in the median sales price of homes. But we also have an inventory shortage of almost 65%! That means that you will have multiple offers on a limited supply of homes in the city. Thus, artificially inflating property values. Even within the city the old adage of “Location, location and location” is still the best baseline of determining property values. Currently there are 93 properties in some stage of the foreclosure process. The high end community area of Hillsborough leads the foreclosure activity with 14 foreclosures compared to the lower economic area of Forster Park with only 10 Foreclosures. So please try and use better sources for your real estate articles, because another storm is coming. Noel Jaimes La Mirada, CA

read with interest the recent article in the LCCN regarding the MALDEF lawsuit against the ABC Unified school district, it truly reflects our divisive and balkanized world. The main premise of the lawsuit seemed be that the persons who applied for the position on the ABC school board two years ago could not effectively represent Hawaiian Gardens, Artesia, or other parts of the district because they were neither Hispanic nor not from the area. I resent such an implication. I was one of those applicants along with a diverse group of other applicants for the board position. To say that I or other candidates who applied for the board position would have less understanding of other communities-because the color of our skin does not match-is horrible racism. To think that because I live in Cerritos, I cannot think beyond the radius of this city and fully represent other areas is ridiculous. If one lives in Cerritos does that mean he or she cannot join the Artesia Chamber of Commerce and lead it as James Kang has done? Does it mean that candidates from Cerritos won’t listen and campaign in other areas as Lynda Johnson has? It seems that the prevalence of Cerritos candidates would split any allegedly “regional” bias and thus require the Cerritos candidates to pursue the entire community even more vigorously Rather than split up and ensuring mi-

ABC School Board Reviews Campus Safety Plans By Randy Economy In light of the recent mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and in the aftermath of the horrific killings at Columbine High School, the ABC Unified School District has instituted a new “School Safety Action Plan” that will be implanted at all 29 of its campuses. At Tuesday’s ABC School Board Meeting, President Celia Spitzer and other members of the Board of Education received a comprehensive plan presented by Assistant Superintendent Toan Nguyen that details a “campus by campus specific plan” in case of a major emergency were to talk place. “The safety of our students is the top priority of this Board of Education,” Spitzer said. “Nothing else matters if we cannot provide a safe learning environment on our campuses,” Spitzer stressed. Nguyen said that a team of district administrators visited each campus during the past few months. “We needed to spend a great deal of time at each location in order to make sure that one solid plan can be implemented to ensure maximum safety for our children and faculty members.” As part of the new effort the district will be installing privacy slats in the preschool/kindergarten areas, and install dead bolts on class room doors from the inside. As part of the new effort the district will be installing “privacy slats” in all preschool/kindergarten areas, and place new dead bolt locks on class room doors from the inside. Nguyen also stated that the district will install an emergency “All Call” solution for every classroom in order to create a safer “communication plan” between classrooms and the school’s main administration building. The District will also be conducting at

least two to three “emergency lock down drills” during each school year, as well as holding outreach meetings and students, staff, and parents regularly regarding school safety. ABC School District officials have also been working with members of law enforcement in order to create the final safety plan. Nguyen stressed that “we can’t complete a safety plan without having our local Sheriff officials on board.” Campuses will also have new enhanced external lighting systems installed at each campus to ensure sufficient lighting, as well as installing new fences and gates in order to ensure a “closed campus.” Nguyen pointed out that Carmenita Middle School on 166th Street in Cerritos is located next to open park space at Joe A. Gonsalves Park. “We had to make sure that Carmenita was specifically addressed and that a safety fence is properly installed between the two properties,” Nguyen said. Each campus will also have updated and installed security cameras installed at all “secondary schools and all placed in strategic areas.” District officials will also be repairing playground equipment on an “as needed basis.” The plan also calls for a “buzzer system” to be installed at each campuses main door that leads from the Main Office. Finally, the plan calls for Whitney High School and Cerritos High School to have new “receptionist counters” installed inside their main office building. “If you are going to be on one of our campuses, we are going to make sure that everyone follows the same rules and procedures, including school administrators, students and parents alike,” said Superintendent Mary Sieu. “We need to learn from what has been going on around the country, and we want our school safety plans to be transparent,” Sieu stressed in her comments.

Part-time Cerritos College Student Trustee Cashes In On Medical Benefits, Payments By Brian Hews and Randy Economy An examination of school documents by Los Cerritos Community Newspaper has revealed that current Cerritos College Student Trustee Jason Macias has been compensated nearly $19,000 per year for his tenure as a part time non-voting member of the institutions’ governing board. Included in that was Macias taking “cash in lieu payments” of over $10,000 instead of opting in for health insurance benefits. Cash in lieu is used by many government institutions and works this way at Cerritos College: the elected Student Trustee is offered health insurance by the college. If the Trustee already has insurance of their own they can “opt out” of the college insurance coverage. The Trustee can then take a monthly payment “in lieu” of declining the college coverage. The study by LCCN also determined that Cerritos College ranks in the top five out of seventy-two community colleges in California in the amount of money student trustees are paid. The other schools that hold that dubious distinction are Mira Costa in Oceanside, Desert in Palm Desert, Ohlone in Fremont, and Rio Hondo in Pico Rivera. A further examination revealed that more than half of the seventy-two schools give no compensation, only mileage, or a monthly amount well below that of Cerritos College.

GREUEL

Continued from page 1 Tom Bradley and Bill Clinton.” “It is shocking that Wendy Greuel was a registered Republican for 13 years during a period of nasty attacks on our community, by California Governor Pete Wilson and his other anti-immigrant allies,” said Cristina Vazquez, President of the Laundry Workers Union. Vazquez has been a resident of Highland Park for the past 30 years. Greuel first registered to vote on April 3, 1979, at age 18 as a Republican when she resided in Granada Hills. Documents show that Greuel remained a member of the Republican Party until June 29, 1992, when she re-registered as a Democrat at a new residence in Van Nuys. Mike Garcia, President of the SEIU United Service Workers West told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper “while we were fending off extremist attacks on our community, Wendy Greuel sat on same side of those who perpetrated these attacks.” Documents from the Registrar Recorder also show that Greuel updated her voting registration on two other occasions, on September 19, 1994 and again on April 12, 2004. Both times she marked “Democratic Party” as her affiliation and she listed her locations as going from Studio City to Encino. Garcetti’s records show that the current Los Angeles City Councilman has been a lifelong “Democrat.” Garcetti states on the Voter Registration documents that he was born on February 4, 1971. Garcetti registered to vote for the first time on April 24, 1989 as a “Democrat.” Documents show that Garcetti has changed his registration five additional times to reflect changes of address at different locations in Los Angeles. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper left several messages with the Greuel campaign on Thursday afternoon for comment. The calls were not returned. Calls into the Garcetti campaign were not returned as of 3:10 p.m.

The win pushed Mayfair’s league mark to 11-0 with one game remaining in the regular season while the Matadores dropped to 9-2 in the circuit. The lone run came in the second inning when Kylee Brown plated Ashlee Snyder, who had begun the frame with a double. The Monsoons, who tied with Cerritos for second place last season, won their third league title in the past four seasons. La Mirada was the defending league champion. In other Suburban League action, the Mayfair baseball team edged La Mirada 4-3 this past Tuesday to clinch at least a share of the league title. It’s the third straight season Mayfair has finished in first

reach and educational materials to parents and to provide tools to child care providers to help educate the families they serve to help reduce Early Childhood Obesity throughout Los Angeles County.” Garcia and Regalado noted in their staff report this week before the city council, “a grant was awarded to the Child Care Resource Center, a sister agency to the City’s Child Development Program, to provide outreach services for Healthy Eating, Active Living Outreach and Training for Child Care Providers and Parents throughout Los Angeles County.” “In order for the City of Norwalk Child Development Program to administer the program, a subcontractor agreement with CCRC is necessary,” Garcia and Regalado pointed out. The program is a four year program and requires a commitment from the City, effective February 8, 2013 through June 30, 2016. The total funding amount is $21,000, and the city can expect that the grant will allow for “outreach services to parents and child care providers in the Norwalk area.” In Downey, city officials, including Mayor Mario Guerra has embarked on an aggressive community wide program that focuses on healthy eating, regular exercise as well as meal planning for the entire family. In Hawaiian Gardens, city officials have targeted early school aged children in a program called “Activate Hawaiian Gardens.” A study in 2012 by the LA County Department of Health claimed that childhood obesity rates in Norwalk and Hawaiian Gardens were registered as being some of the very highest throughout the county.

or limit dispensaries as they please.” The issue of medical pot shops recently here in the Southeast Los Angeles County area landed one veteran city councilman behind bars in a sting conducted by Federal officials. Councilman Joseph Serrano of Santa Fe Springs agreed to plead guilty in connection to a major federal bribery case that involved the accepting thousands of dollars in cash bribes from the operator of a marijuana dispensary doing business in the tiny industrial community. Court records previously published by Los Cerritos Community Newspaper confirmed that Serrano took thousands of dollars in cash bribes from the operator of a marijuana store who wanted to influence the city to allow his store to stay open. After his arrest, Serrano immediately resigned from the Santa Fe Springs City Council. “Proposition 215, and the Medical Marijuana Policy (aka: Senate Bill 420) create no all-encompassing scheme for the control and regulation of marijuana for medicinal use,” the Court pointed out, adding, “though the Legislature stated it intended the MMP to ‘promote; uniform application of the CUA and to ‘enhance’ access to medical marijuana through collective cultivation, the MMP itself adopts but limited means of addressing these ideals.” “Of course, nothing prevents future efforts by the (California State) Legislature, or by the People, to adopt a different approach,” the Court concluded. There are two bills currently in the state legislature, AB473 (Assemblyman Tom Ammiano of San Francisco) and SB439

In Norwalk, the city council enacted an strict ordinance nearly four years ago that specifically defines language regarding the operation of a Medical Marijuana Dispensary. Norwalk Public Information Officer Jeff Hobbs reminded LCCN in an interview on Tuesday that “no person shall use any property in the City as a medical marijuana dispensary.” “We are going to follow the absolute letter of the law here in Norwalk,” Hobbs said. A spokesperson for the City of Cerritos did not return calls regarding this situation.

Corrales, Artesia Put John Glenn In Must-Win Situation

HUMBERT HOLDS OFF WARREN AS GAHR CLINCHES ANOTHER SGVL CHAMPIONSHIP

SUBURBAN LEAGUE BASEBALL By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

f there is a league title on the line, then odds are Gahr senior pitcher Greg Humbert is in the middle of it. For the second straight season with a different school, Humbert was on the mound in a league-title clinching game and both times he came away with a victory. Humbert went the distance for the second straight outing, yielding three infield hits and struck out seven as the host Gladiators edged Warren 2-1 to claim no worse than a share of the San Gabriel Valley League title. It’s the second straight league crown and fourth since 2005 for the Gladiators. One year and four days prior to Gahr’s win over Warren, Humbert got the call when his Mayfair Monsoons faced arch rival La Mirada for the Suburban League championship and he went the distance in that game, scattering seven hits and striking out six in a 4-0 win. “I love the pressure,” Humbert said. “Pressure makes the game. Pressure is awesome. Whether it’s 4-1, 3-1, 2-1, it’s the same pressure. I love the feel of it. If you win, you win it. That’s what it’s all about.” The California State University, Los Angeles signee was in a zone early, retiring the first 10 batters he faced before Alan Trejo laid down a bunt up the third base line. But four pitches later, Humbert got Rene Vega to ground into a double play. Humbert then worked a perfect fifth inning before running into trouble in the sixth. “He got in a groove early,” said Gahr head coach Gerardo Perez. “He was able to keep them off-balanced. He had good downhill play. Not only him, but a lot of times when you have a real good pitching performance, you have a good catching performance. And our senior Albert [Perez] stepped up and did a great job as far as leadership and calling pitches. He has real good rapport in a short period of time with

he post game music following Artesia’s home game with John Glenn last Friday afternoon was fitting. Blaring from the Artesia dugout was “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey. It definitely has been a two week journey for the Pioneers to end the season as they are one of three teams battling for fourth place and the final automatic playoff berth from the Suburban League. The Pioneers rebounded from a poor performance two days prior and edged the Eagles 5-3 to move one full game ahead of Glenn with two games left in the regular season. Also in the playoff mix is Norwalk, whom the Pioneers played this past week, and both of those squads had identical 4-6 league records to begin the week. But entering last Friday’s game, the message from Artesia head coach Michael Gaoghagan to his team was real simple. He said the team had to win the next three and they’re in, or they’re asking for help and they don’t want to do that. “We held on today,” Gaoghagan said. “We played horrible [on Wednesday]. Our problem, really for most of the year, has just been consistency. We’re really good defensively or we’re horrible. We either have a good pitching performance, like we did today, or we walk everyone and their mother. We don’t know which team is going to come out.” Artesia trailed 3-2 entering the bottom of the fifth when Glenn sophomore pitcher Victor Sanchez walked senior pitcher Tommy Corrales and served up a double to deep center to senior shortstop Joseph Herrera that tied the game. After a groundout, junior designated hitter Roman Salazar laid down a weak grounder that was thrown away, allowing Herrera to score. The Pioneers (8-14 overall following the win) added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth when senior relief pitcher Rene

Gaytan walked sophomore second baseman Matt Munoz, who stole second, went to third on a sacrifice fly from Corrales and scored on a passed ball. “They did a good job on the slash,” said John Glenn head coach Jack Brooks. “That’s just a tough deal. They squib one and that’s the go-ahead run. Then the passed ball in the bottom of the sixth is a game changer. If we go into the top of the seventh down by one and get our lead-off guy on, we can steal and we can bunt. If we’re down by two, my hands are cuffed.” Brooks’ message to his team was simple as well. He told the players that they had to play every pitch and every inning like it was their last. Early on, Sanchez was giving his team a chance to come back despite falling behind 2-0 in the first inning. After a bases loaded walk to Salazar, Sanchez got junior first baseman Osbiel Montalvo to ground into a double play, then yielded two hits and struck out five of his next 13 batters. Meanwhile, the Eagles (11-13, 3-7) tied the game in the top of the second when Sanchez drove in senior first baseman Cesar Arzate and senior catcher Arturo Loera with a base hit up the middle. But the story of the game was Corrales, who evened his record at 4-4 and hurled his fifth complete game of the season. Corrales scattered half a dozen hits, walked one and struck out eight on 101 pitches. He was also walked three times, one intentionally, and has been one of the leaders this season both on and off the mound. “[Sophomore] Javier Vasquez is having a heck of a year as well,” Gaoghagan said. “Joseph has been up and down. When he’s hot, he hits the ball real well. Tommy is [5’ 5”] and not exactly your athletic specimen when you look at him. But he does a good job and throws strikes. He’s able to get the breaking ball over and because he can do that, he can dictate what he wants to throw.” Senior left fielder Jerry Azzato went two for four and drove in a run as Artesia visited Norwalk this past Tuesday and fell to the Lancers 6-5. Artesia hosted Norwalk on May 9, needing to win by more than one

AOL/PATCH LEGAL NOTICES BILL DIES IN SACRAMENTO By Randy Economy Lakewood area Assemblyman Anthony Rendon has killed a controversial piece of legislation that would have allowed internet provider AOL/Patch to gain access to formal government public notices. Rendon, in the beginning months in his first term in the California State Legislature yanked AB 642 late last week that was being opposed by newspaper publishers throughout the region and state. Rendon pulled the bill from the Assembly Judiciary Committee's hearing schedule last week. AB 642 would have allowed Internetonly entities, such as The Patch, to become adjudicated as newspapers of general circulation qualified to post public notices on the Internet. Rendon's decision means the bill is dead for this legislative session. Since this is the first year of the biennial session, AB 642 will be eligible to be heard in January

with all of the other two-year bills. Last week, the Cerritos City Council hashed over the merits of the bill in a public meeting, but did not take a formal posi-

tion on Rendon’s Los Cerritos Community Newspaper Publisher Brian Hews said he and Rendon held a face to face meeting one week prior

to the Assemblyman’s decision to pull the proposed bill from consideration. “Assemblyman Rendon needs to be congratulated for his decision,” Hews said. “In these days of rampant corruption at public agencies throughout South East Los Angeles County, the public needs to rely on published notices in newspapers in order to ensure public accountability and transparency,” Hews said. “Community newspapers are the heart and soul of America’s newsroom. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper will continue to serve the best interest of our readers, each and every week,” Hews said. “Community newspapers are also small business owners, and this bill that was being sponsored by corporate giants American On Line, Time Warner and The Patch, would have dramatically impacted hometown newsrooms up and down California,” Hews said in a statement on Monday.

LA Mirada City Council Warns Of Prescription Drug Health Risks Prescription drug abuse awareness was the subject of a proclamation issued this week by La Mirada Mayor Steve De Ruse. The proclamation was requested by students in Biola University’s Nursing program, who have expressed special concerns about the issue of prescription drug abuse. La Mirada residents are urged to protect their families by properly disposing of expired prescription drugs, said Mayor De Ruse. More than 20,000 deaths throughout the nation were caused by prescription drug overdoses in 2008. Deaths

caused by overdoses of pain relievers have increased and reportedly exceed the number of deaths involving heroin and cocaine combined. Some 1.2 million emergency department visits are related to the misuse or abuse of pharmaceuticals.

More than 2 million people reported using prescription painkillers non-medically for the first time within the last year. Health officials estimate that as many as 70 percent of people who abuse prescription drugs get them from a relative or friend instead of a doctor. The City of La Mirada is partnering with the Los Angeles County Sanitation District to hold a Household Hazardous Waste Collection program in La Mirada on May 4 so that residents can properly dispose of expired pharmaceuticals.
