City Council Health Insurance and Benefits Differ From City to City

Walker Junior High School Representatives Win at Jostens Renaissance National Conference By Larry Caballero

By Jerry Bernstein Editor’s note: This is the second article concerning health insurance and benefits for area City Council members, many who are considered part-time employees. The question being askedshould cities pay for the insurance, which usually covers dependents or should members of the city council pay a portion of the premium. The previous article covered the cities of Artesia and Cerritos. An ongoing LCCN investigation has found that health insurance and benefits vary from city to city. The majority of [See BENEFITS page 14]

Austin O’ Malley, nine years old, noticed an odd looking flower growing in the family garden, along 183rd Street in Artesia. The flower was not intentionally planted there, yet it was attractive enough to convince Austin to continue caring for it. That was back in March. Today the flower, a hollyhock, is now 13 feet, 8 inches tall. Austin’s father, Sean O’ Malley, thinks that a bird must have dropped the seed at its prominent spot at the forefront of their garden. “It’s a few feet away from the world record,” said Sean O’ Malley. According to the 1982 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records, the tallest hollyhock reported was 24 feet, 3 inches tall, grown by W.P. Walshe of Eastburne, East Sussex, United Kingdom in 1961. Again, this was reported however but not photographed. The tallest confirmed flower was 19 feet, 7 inches, grown by George Palmer of West Clandon, Surrey, in the United Kingdom, during 1978.

Hawaiian Gardens City Council debates warrants and how they should be paid Financial and Personnel Audit Requested. By Jerry Bernstein The discussion that keeps cropping up at the Hawaiian Gardens City Council meetings has to do with Warrants. Should these bills be paid before the council approves them or after council approval? Warrants have been described as routine. They include payment for work that has been completed for the city under contract as well as miscellaneous fees such as insurance premiums. and expenses. At its July 26 meeting the council gave its approval to pre-issued warrants and regular warrants in the amount of $2,041,222.51 with Mayor Mike Gomez, Mayor Pro Tem Michi Oyama-Canada and Councilmember Victor Far Fan approving them. Councilmembers Reynaldo Rodriguez and

looks good now, but we don’t know what the Governor may do in the future.” Mayor Mike Gomez said Hawaiian Gardens has not had to lay off any city employee or put them on furlough similar to what other cities have done. “We have worked hard to cut expenses.” He said to say we have been neglectful is incorrect. Commenting on the Sports Complex under construction at Fedde Middle School, he said “Yes, the cost was estimated at $8 million, but $3 million was raised through grants and donations.” He said he understands when completed it will be under budget by $1 million. He said concerning warrants He believes that is standard in every city. Bruce disagreed saying he understands many cities review the warrants before approval is given. In other business the council approved an amendment the city code requiring retailers to have a license before they can sell tobacco retailers. The council also approved the installation of eight stop signs on Belshire Avenue between 221st street and Brittain Street and painting 15 ft. of red curb approaching the intersection and 10 ft. of red curb leaving the intersection for the entire segment of Belshire Avenue and 221st Street to Brittain Street.

Don McLean at Cerritos: American as American Pie By Glen Creason One of the most inspired YouTube videos in memory is the truly fantastic civic pride exhibition by Grand Rapids, Michigan. An entire town is choreographed while lip sinking the anthem “American Pie” as they showcase a city dissed by Newsweek magazine. You won’t find an example of American strength more emblematic and full of spirit than this one. http://www.youtube. com/watch?v=ZPjjZCO67WI It is no surprise that the town used this long and textured song to exhibit what is great about America because it has become one of the most beloved tunes of all time despite getting played on top-40 radio a zillion times. Now, there is hearing it on the radio with its familiar refrain and then there is the live version which was heard at the Performing Arts Center on Saturday night where the entire full house is singing along in full-voice chorus after heart-warming chorus. Certainly a visit by Don McLean, a dean of songwriting and a singer of great renown is fortunate for us in these parts since he has made enough money to retire and sit up by the radio towers that broadcast his classic each day. Yet, McLean is an entertainer to the bone and he doesn’t like to rest on his laurels so there he was in the old hometown offering up way more than just American Pie while steaming full speed through over twenty of his repertoire. It

La Mirada crime summary July 18 - July 24, 2011

Four vehicle burglaries were reported last week. A window smash burglary was reported on the 15000 block of La Mirada Blvd. A laptop computer and GPS were taken. Two vehicle burglaries were reported on the 14900 block of Firestone Blvd. Various items were taken from recreational vehicles. Another incident was reported on the 11800 block of La Mirada Blvd. Several items were taken from a vehicle which had its door lock punched. Grand Theft Vehicle Two vehicle thefts were reported last week. A motorcycle was reported stolen from the 12300 block of Imperial Hwy. An older model Honda was reported stolen from the 13200 block of Bona Vista

LOSCERRITOSNEWS.NET is an impressive treasure chest of songs including the gems “Vincent,” “Winterwood,” “Castles in the Air” and “And I Love Her So” that will certainly stand the test of time. He also mixed in marvelous material from his many albums that kept the pulse thumping including a Buddy Holly medley (“Well Alright,” “Wishin’,” and “Peggy Sue Got Married”) along with Roy Orbison’s magnificent “Cryin” that stirred the gray cells of the mostly Boomer crowd. McLean also chose some fine songs that may not have charted, especially the poignant “Homeless Brother,” and “Jay Gould’s Daughter” that had a contemporary message that hit home. There was also 21st century stuff many had not heard like “Run Diana Run” about media obsession with celebrities and the light hearted “Fashion Victim” that varied the flow of serious songs. In case one might forget that this man is a fine musician he played the heck out of the old Reverend Gary Davis’ “I’ve Got the Keys to the Kingdom” and rocked it country and western style on “Living on Tulsa Time.” While the man is not close to the singer who caressed these ballads forty years ago, I can’t run to first base too fast anymore either. The band that backs Don McLean is understated but excellent, especially Vip Vipperson on lead guitar and Tony Migliore on the 88’s. The evening was also a family affair when son Wyatt came out to sing a couple of folk tunes while demonstrating the best voice heard all evening with a beguiling shyness that just added to the concert’s charm. In the end, however, it was the anthem “American Pie” sung by the giddy audience that made the evening memorable. Just like Grand Rapids, Cerritos sounds pretty good singing in harmony. Ln. The vehicle was recovered the same day by the Santa Ana Police Department. A stolen semi tractor and trailer was recovered on the 14700 block of Firestone Blvd. The vehicles were stolen from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department jurisdiction. The City of La Mirada will hold its annual National Night Out on Aug. 4 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at La Mirada Regional Park. The event is held in conjunction with Concert Under the Stars. "National Night Out brings residents and the Public Safety Team together to promote crime prevention programs and to increase participation in anti-crime programs," says Crime Scene Technician Jennifer Anderson. Representatives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and La Mirada Public Safety Team will be in attendance. Free kid fingerprinting will also be available.

The credit union works directly with each school counselor to receive their recommendation for a worthy student recipient each year. The credit union also offered a $1,000 scholarship in 2011 that could be applied for by any LBS Financial member in their final year of high school or first three years of college. One winner for the $1,000 scholarship is selected by a credit union employee committee each year and will be formally announced later this summer.

Akiona went three for five while Nicholson and Perkins each added a pair of hits as the Punishers collected a dozen hits, two short of Team Dynasty’s output. “We just want to prove what we have,” Bob Medina said. “Those kids who we were playing against are juniors in college. They were starting to name the names of their colleges. Even by them saying that out loud, I don’t think it ever flustered our kids.” But the Punishers got just two hits against Team San Diego and did not have a runner reach second in a 10-0 elimination loss. Another former Punisher, Alex Bitsimis, had a run scoring double in the bottom of the third for Team San Diego.

from Brittany Colenzo. Offensively, the Punishers got a pair of hits from Kristina Akiona and Analisa Nicholson. Feenstra and Alley Perkins each scored a pair of runs. This past Sunday morning, the Cal Lite peppered Alashanee Medina for 11 hits in a 5-1 victory. The Punishers were limited to four hits from four different players and scored their lone run in the bottom of the second. Immediately after that game, the Punishers were involved in a slugfest with Team Dynasty and came away with an 11-9 win in eight innings. Artesia rallied from a 3-0 first inning deficit to tie the game in the top of the third when Roper doubled in Perkins and Akiona. The Punishers then put three runs on the board in the fifth as Akiona smacked a three-run home run over the left field fence. With the Punishers up 6-5 heading into the top of the seventh, Jessica Munoz and Akiona led off the frame with base hits to left field. Two outs later, Morales was walked to load the bases and Nicholson was safe on an error which allowed Munoz and Akiona to come home. Mahrisch Medina singled in Morales to give the Punishers what many thought was a comfortable lead. But Team Dynasty rallied for four runs in the bottom of the seventh as Alashanee Medina was laboring through a pulled hamstring injury. She left the game after the seventh having thrown 301 pitches in the first two games this past Sunday morning. “We did not doubt that they would hit against Shanee because Shanee wasn’t able to give her best stuff because of her leg injury in the last two innings,” Bob Medina said. “But our girls were rallying for her because of what she did for uspitching the two games back to back.” Colenzo, who had arrived late to the game feeling under the weather, left

But that did not matter one bit for head coach Bob Medina as he watched his team win three games against teams who have players well into their college days. The tournament was also a chance for some former Punishers to be reunited with Medina as Sarah Carrasco, Mahrisch Medina, Natalia Morales, Jessica Roper and Devin Salmones made cameo appearances throughout the two-day affair at Whittier Narrows Recreation Park. Dayna Feenstra, of Artesia High School and Michigan State University fame, also played in the state tournament. “We’re losing good, quality games because we’re promoting the kids,” Bob Medina said. “What we learned today, I think we accomplished our goal because kids who are moving on to college…this is how you have to play and this is who you’ll be playing against. The one’s who aren’t in college yet, this is what you have to look forward to and you have to get up to par here.” The Punishers split their two pool play games last Saturday morning, then blanked the Cal Lady Hawks 6-0 last Saturday evening behind a one-hitter

CRAs

Continued from page 14 In the 85 page response that was filed on Wednesday in San Francisco, Harris claims that CRA’s have relied of “accounting gimmicks, illusory spending cuts, and improbable revenue projections.” Here is the full text of the response: “In 1945, the California Legislature passed legislation authorizing the creation of Redevelopment Agencies ("RDAs"). Over time, hundreds of RDAs were created, and they grew to control many billions of public dollars each year. As the percentage of public funds controlled by RDAs grew, the portion available to fund crucial local services like schools, transportation, and fire protection dropped.” “During most of the past decade, even as RDA funds grew, California struggled with massive budget deficits. These deficits were extended and exacerbated by budgeting practices that relied too heavily on borrowing, accounting gimmicks, illusory spending cuts, and improbable revenue projections. Making matters much worse, the Great Recession reduced the state's revenue base by 30 percent.” “When Governor Brown took office, California's immediate and long term fiscal problems were immense. A $25.4 billion budget deficit existed for 201112 and an annual structural deficit of up to $21.5 billion was projected into the future. Time had come for the Legislature and the Governor to confront difficult policy and spending choices and enact an honest and fiscally responsible budget. For the first time in many

TO ADVERTISE CALL 800-901-7211

years, they did so when they passed the 2011-12 FY Budget. This budget not only closed the fiscal year's $25.4 billion imbalance, but it also reduced the structural deficit by more than $15 billion.” As part of this budget, the Legislature passed legislation which eliminated RDAs and called for their operations to be systematically wound down. Simultaneously, the Legislature created an alternative, voluntary scheme for cities and counties to use should they wish to continue pursuing redevelopment. Through this petition, RDA supporters seek to have the Legislature's actions declared Unconstitutional. The petition alleges that state constitutional provisions which limit the Legislature's ability to tamper with the stream of income flowing into and out of RDAs also preclude the Legislature from terminating the RDA program through AB IX 26. This contention is meritless. RDAs are creatures of statute—not the state constitution—and the Legislature may dissolve them. Proposition 22 does not change this analysis and did nothing to limit the Legislature's power to dissolve RDAs. The petition also claims that AB1X 27, which created a new and voluntary redevelopment program, violates Proposition 22. This contention is also without merit. Proposition 22 blocks forted shifts and transfers from RDAs. AB1X 27 is voluntary and does not force RDAs or cities and counties to do anything. Although respondent 1 does not agree that the statutes are infirm, she does agree that the issues presented are of sufficient importance to warrant resolution by this Court in the first instance, preferably on an expedited basis.

Finally, the Court should not issue a stay of these critically important pieces of the state's current budget framework. AB IX 26 and AB1X 27 are essential parts of the budget solution crafted by the Legislature and the Governor, and a stay would harm the public interest. Further, petitioners cannot make an adequate showing that they will be harmed without a stay.” To view the entire response from Attorney General Harris, please visit the Los Cerritos Community News Web Site at www.loscerritosnews.net

BENEFITS

Continued from page 1 the cities provides health insurance not only for the council members but their families too. In addition some cities continue coverage after a councilmember goes off the council. In Artesia however, the health insurance ends once the councilmember is no longer on the council. In the city of Hawaiian Gardens each councilmember and family member receive health insurance. The insurance stays in force until such time as the member goes off the council unless he is vested (on the council for more than five years, is retired, and is over 55 years in age.) If a councilmember declines to take the insurance he or she receives nothing. If the insurance fee is in excess of the normal fee that is governed by CALPERS, the councilmember must pay the difference, which is usually for dependents. Two members of the Hawaiian Gardens council, Mayor Mike Gomez and Mayor Pro Tem Michi Oyama-Canada, are not covered by the city because they have their own medical insurance. Norwalk city council members and their families receive health coverage. This ends when the councilmember leaves the council. The coverage does not include dental care. If a councilmember is 65 years he or she has a choice of basic health or they can go on Medicare provided they are not employed. The City of La Palma does not provide any health insurance coverage for its councilmembers, Councilmembers in the city of Cypress pay no premium if the coverage is just for them. If the councilmember includes family members they have to pay the difference. Councilmembers have several medical plans to pick from. They include PERS Care (Blue Cross), Continued on Next Page

PERS Choice (Blue Cross), PERS Select (Blue Cross) BLUE SHIELD HMO Coverage, BLUE SHIELD Net Value Coverage, and Kaiser HMO Coverage. Councilmembers also have two Dental Plans to choose from: Delta Preferred and Delta Care, which the premiums are paid for by the city. However under Delta Preferred the council members pays $41.12 for one dependent and $105.66 for two dependents. Under Delta Care one dependent is $13.90. Two dependents are $29.95. Councilmembers who chose to waive dental coverage receives $5 per month. There is also city paid life insurance coverage in the amount of $10,000 through Sun Life Insurance Company of America and a Vision Service Plan (VSP) where the council- members pays a $10 co-payment for self and each dependent. The councilmember may also elect to enroll as an “Optional” member in the Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) with 2 percent @ 55 formula, single highest year calculation and survivor benefit. DEFFERED COMPENSATION is available to all Council Members. The last city surveyed was Santa Fe Springs. Like all employees, members of the City Council receive medical, dental, and life insurance while in office. There are different types of medical plans available, so it depends on what plan the person chooses if their dependent(s) are to be covered. Up until last year, dependents were eligible for coverage on most insurance policies until 18, or 21 if they were fulltime students. Under a new law, passed by President Obama, dependents can now stay covered on their parents' medical plans until they reach the age of 26. To date Santa Fe Springs has never had

a Councilmember retire with dependents that qualified to be on their plans; most are over the age to be covered. Spouses however could be covered if that type of plan is chosen.

CERRITOS SHERIFF’S STATION Weekly Crime Summary July 18-24, 2011 Part I felony investigations dropped from twenty-seven to eighteen last week. Robberies, commercial burglaries, and vehicle thefts declined, residential burglaries remained the same, while vehicle burglaries increased. Patrol personnel handled 298 calls for service, up from 280 the previous week. The current 2011 weekly average in calls for service is 273. GREAT NEWS! There were no robberies reported last week. Residential burglaries remained the same at four last week. Open/unlocked doors or windows were responsible for two, and two windows were pried open. Victims reported computers, credit cards, TVs, and monitors as the loss items. The 2011 weekly average in residential burglaries remains at 3.7.

COMMUNITY NEWS GROUP • JULY 29, 2011

No matter how hot it gets, it is always more difficult to replace stolen items and to know that someone was in your home than the moment it takes to secure the house and ventilate it upon your return. One commercial burglary was investigated after a storage room door was pried open and tools taken. There were six cases the week before. The 2011 weekly average in commercial /“other structure” burglaries is 3.1. Vehicle burglaries increased from six to ten last week. Seven were from high-volume commercial parking lots, and six SUVs were targeted. GPS units were removed in two crimes and a high-end stereo in one. Keys, sunglasses, purses, grocery bags, clothing and backpacks were stolen. The 2011 weekly average in vehicle burglaries remained at 6.0. The safest place to leave items inside of a vehicle is in your locked garage. Remember that wherever you park, you become “fair game” to any thief that can look inside of your vehicle and observe valuable property. Whether you park on a street, in a parking lot, or even your own driveway, the thin window that separates your property from a thief is not any protection at all. Window smashes are the most reported points of entry in vehicle burglaries. Don’t become a victim by giving a criminal the chance to make you one. Vehicle thefts dropped from seven to one last week. The current crime was from a high-volume commercial parking lot, and was a trailer. The 2011 weekly average in this crime is now 2.9. It is always a good idea to have your vehicle equipped with a steering wheel locking device. A common complaint among motorists is that these devices

are too cumbersome and take time to engage and remove. Using them takes a short moment of your time for added protection.

Continued from page 1 the “Spirit Award” during the conference for demonstrating enthusiasm and purpose. It is a major accomplishment that a junior high chapter won this award over all the secondary schools in the nation. “I am proud of how our students represented our school at the conference. We learned new ideas to implement at our school and also were able to share what we have done to promote student success at Walker Junior High School in front of a national audience. I was honored to be named a Jostens Renaissance Coordinator of the Year and be able to celebrate with my students at the conference,” said Sasai. “Schools that have integrated Jostens Renaissance into their curriculum have seen noticeable improvement in students’ academic performance,” said Charley Nelson, Director, Educator Services, Jostens. “By implementing the program, students receive the extra push and recognition they need to improve their academic skills and develop selfconfidence.” Calissa Jones, an eighth grade student, who has attended the Jostens Renaissance National conference for two consecutive years commented, “Both years that I have attended the conference, I’ve been incredibly inspired to make a difference in my community.” The conference featured guest speak-

ers NBA star Bill Walton, and Liz Murray, a homeless child of drug-addict parents and a Harvard grad winner of the Oprah Winfrey’s “Chutzpah Award,” and subject of the Lifetime film Homeless to Harvard. Ron Hoshi, assistant principal at Oxford Academy, who served as a chaperone remarked, “Ms. Murray is one of the most inspirational speakers I have ever heard in my career as an educator.” At Walker Junior High School, two high-energy Renaissance rallies are held each year. The fall rally honors eighth graders for grades earned the previous year. The spring rally honors both seventh and eighth graders for grades earned during the first semester. “Renaissance is more than a program. It is also a process that encourages academic excellence, improvement, and citizenship,” said Sasai. Founded by educators in 1988, Jostens Renaissance is the first and only national education-focused program created to recognize and reward the academic achievements of students from elementary school through college. Its primary goals are to increase student performance and teacher enthusiasm, and to raise the level of community participation in schools.

VIRUS

Continued from page 1 doubled in the past two weeks alone. Cerritos now accounts for nearly

60% of all confirmed cases in all of Los Angeles County of dead birds that have fallen from the virus. As of last week, Vector Control officials said that 21 dead birds have been found throughout Los Angeles County who died from the killer virus, and of those 12 were found in Cerritos, or roughly 60% of all cases to date. Vector Control officials also reported that 36 mosquitoes have been found in traps throughout Los Angeles County, and of those five were found in Cerritos. Los Angeles County has reported the highest number of West Nile virus (WNV) positive dead birds so far this year when compared to all other counties in California, and Cerritos has the most recorded cases in Los Angeles County according to the latest statistics. Overall, Vector control districts in L.A. County have reported 26 of the 69 West Nile virus positive dead birds that have been recorded statewide. Within one week, the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District (GLACVCD) has identified an additional eight West Nile virus positive dead birds bringing the District’s total to 21 for the year. Of the eight new WNV positive dead birds reported. Councilman Mark Pulido, and around 20 local community members attended the briefing at the Cerritos Library. Pulido interjected that he has personally seen "thousands" of black crows that have been flocking in “clusters” in areas around the Cerritos Civic Center.

Crystal Brown, an official with Vector Control, said that there is a "cause for concern" since so many cases are located in a dense area here in Cerritos. "This is very alarming, and concerning, and now is the time for everyone to get educated and to take precaution," she told the community meeting. Longtime Cerritos resident Don Faisy, a teacher in the ABC Unified School District said he found at least three dead black crows in his back yard over the "past few days alone." Faisy said the only way he learned about the outbreak was from a recent series of articles in the Los Cerritos Community News. "If it wasn't for LCCN reporting on this, I am afraid no one would get this information," Faisy said. The newest locations where the dead birds with the West Nile Virus found in Cerritos during the past few days were found at the 16000 block of Winward, 12000 block of Edgefield, 13000 block of Park, and the 17000 block of Stark. Officials said that they are working to get an "interactive map" to be placed on line that will that will provide "real time" confirmed case data, and where it is located.
