The budget included a new Employment Resolution for the executive management team with a three-year term that includes pension reforms.

Attack on US Navy Seal Chopper Takes Life of Lakewood Chamber Leader Son Lt. Commander Jonas Kelsall, 33, was son of John and Terri Kelsall. Local Chamber leaders express their sympathies. Lt. Commander Jonas Kelsall

By Randy Economy The tragic downing of the Chinook helicopter that killed 30 American Navy Seals Aug. 6, in Kumar Region of Afghanistan, has sent shockwaves through the greater Southeast Los Angeles County business community. Lt. Commander Jonas Kelsall, the 33-year old son of Lakewood Chamber of Commerce CEO and President John Kelsall and his wife Terri, was identified

as one of the victims killed in Saturday’s attack. The Department of Defense confirmed his identification, the Los Cerritos Community News has learned. The incident, officials said, represents the highest number of U.S. forces killed during a single event in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The Los Cerritos Community News

also spoke directly to leaders of the Lakewood, Cerritos and Norwalk chamber of Commerce’s and all of them expressed their deepest condolences to the Kelsall family. “John Kelsall is a colleague and my heart is broken for him and his family,” said Vivian Hansen, Executive Director of the Norwalk Regional Chamber of Commerce. “When I heard the news, my heart just sunk. I hope everyone can reflect on the passing of Jonas, and to keep all of our troops in your prayers,” Hansen said. Kelsall joined the elite “Team 6” of the Navy Seals around five years ago, and rose to the rank of lieutenant commander. Catherine Gaughen, Executive Director of the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce said that Jonas’s father John spoke often about his son with “beaming love and affection.” “I know John very well, and Jonas meant the world to him. We are all feeling this loss, and words cannot express how this has touched the chamber community here in our area,” Gaughen said. “When John spoke about Jonas, he also glowed as a proud father. Jonas will forever be remembered as a hero, and amazing son and patriot,” Gaughen said. It’s really a blow for all of us as Americans,” added Mayor Van Nostran. “Our military service members in combat zones like Lt. Cmdr. Kelsall put their lives on the line every day doing very dangerous work to try to make the world

a safer place. We owe them and their families so very much. On behalf of the Lakewood City Council and all our city residents, I want to express our deepest condolences to John and his family for the loss of their son.” The Lakewood City Council will be adjourning its council meeting on Tuesday night in memory of Lt. Cmdr. Kelsall. President Barrack Obama said of the passing of the Navy Seals on Monday "My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the Americans who were lost in Afghanistan.” "Their deaths are a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by the men and women of our military and their families, including all who have served in Afghanistan,” President Obama said. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta also expressed his sorrow for the loss. "I am deeply saddened by the loss of many outstanding Americans in uniform and of their Afghan counterparts earlier today in Afghanistan," he said. "Their courage was exemplary, as was their determination to make this a safer world for their countries and for their fellow citizens. "We will stay the course to complete that mission, for which they and all who have served and lost their lives in Afghanistan have made the ultimate sacrifice," he continued. "They and their families are in my thoughts, in my prayers and in my heart." A full military burial for Jonas, and the others lost in this attack will be held at Arlington National Cemetery in Alexandria, Virginia.

Hawaiian Gardens residents join Nationwide National Night Out

Marching against crime: Hawaiian Gardens Councilmember Victor Farfan along with residents marched from the Civic Center to the city’s library and Public Safety Center on the corner of Seine Avenue and Carson Street. Editor's Note: This is a re-run of last week's story, the wrong article was run. Residents throughout Hawaiian Gardens joined forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the Annual National Night Out Aug. 2 commemorating the nation’s fight against crime. Community members participating in the Community Peace Walk met in the City Hall parking lot, marched east on Civic Center Drive north on Seine Avenue, ending at the Hawaiian Gardens Library/ Public Safety Center on Carson where the City along with the Sheriff’s and Fire Department hosted a Barbeque and an evening of fun activities for residents. Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, Mayor Mike Gomez, City Councilmember Victor Farfan and members of the city staff, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies and the Los Angeles County firefighters highlighted the event, talking to the residents on a oneon-one basis. The city’s program is part of the National Night Out program designed to promote neighborhood spirit and a policecommunity partnership to fight crime.

Norwalk Chamber of Commerce warns of advertising scam The Norwalk Chamber received a phone call from a member to let it know they had been scammed by an Adam Partida representing Anaheim Living. He had sold them an opportunity for direct mail advertising, similar to the Pennysaver. When they did not receive any copies of the publication, nor did

Mayor Gomez welcomed the participants and said, “ By participating in the National Night Out we are showing that Hawaiian Gardens is focused and united. Only together can we make Hawaiian Gardens a city to live in.� Gomez cited the Neighborhood Watch Program, the Safety Center and Public Library as examples that city can be proud of. “Our neighborhoods are united and we will fight back,� he stated Captain Christy Guyovich described Hawaiian Gardens as a great city to live in. She thanked the residents for their support. “We’re here to keep you safe,� she said. “There are lots of you and a few of us so we need your help.� Fire Department Battalion Chief Dan Ertel thanked the city’s residents for their support. “I've worked in Hawaiian Gardens a long time,� he exclaimed, “and I have seen miraculous changes in this city. Hawaiian Gardens is a great city.� He said the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department and the Los Angeles County Fire Department are working together to make Hawaiian Gardens a safe city and one the residents can take pride in their city.

The Chamber asks that everyone be aware that this person may be hitting businesses in the Norwalk Community and always investigate fully any persons trying to sell you something.

Cerritos teen Hannah Joo was named the 2012 Distinguished Young Woman of California Jul. 30 and awarded $16,000 in cash scholarships during a statewide scholarship program for high school girls held at the Harvey Auditorium in Bakersfield. Joo was one of 40 high Hannah Joo school senior girls who competed to represent the state. Participants were evaluated in the categories of Scholastics (20%), Interview (25%), Fitness (15%), Self-Expression (15%) and Talent (25%). “The most rewarding part of this program is the spirit of support and encouragement among the participants, which speaks to the Be Your Best Self’ program,” said Joo. “We encourage each other to be our best, without changing who we are.” Throughout the next year, Joo will represent California at various public events and serve as a role model to young people by spreading the program’s national outreach message of “Be Your Best Self.” “During the 10 days Hannah was in Bakersfield, we could see her changing,” said Joo’s mother. “The Distinguished Young Women program has helped her learn to fully express her caring and appreciation towards others.” The program has had THREE winners in the past 10 years! Shefali Kosha Shah in 2002, Lisa Yi in 2004, and now Hannah Joo in 2012.

WWW.LOSCERRITOSNEWS.NET

she was asked if she would like to earn summer school credit by visiting California for three weeks. She didn’t have to think about it very long. As part of a summer International Exchange Program sponsored by the Educational Resource Development Trust, Special Programs Division, Sarah and about 35 other students from throughout China would be given the opportunity to learn more about American history, culture and traditions.

Visiting a local La Palma church were the International Exchange Program students from China along with their teachers and host parents.

TO ADVERTISE CALL 800-901-7211

In the first two weeks, the group has visited Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Hollywood Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, UCLA, Biola College and the Cerritos Library. The students are staying with host families including long-time La Palma resident Jan Jensen who said, “I had no idea what it would be like to host students from another country, but I have loved every minute of it. It has truly been an amazing experience, and I am so impressed with how well they speak English.” Program Coordinator Lynneta Ruth hopes that more host families will volunteer next year. She can be contacted at 714-357-4706 for anyone who would want to open up his or her home next year. This is Ruth’s first year as Coordinator, and she has learned so much about the history, culture and traditions of China, and she plans to continue being involved in the program. Whitney High Honors student Mylan Jefferson is an intern for the teachers and is responsible for setting up the technical equipment and PowerPoint presentations. “I’ve really enjoyed meeting the students and assisting the teachers who are providing them with many cultural experiences that they’ll be able to take back with them to

China.” Jensen expressed her appreciation to La Palma Christian Center Pastor Steve Bland for opening his church classrooms for the students and teachers. When Sarah was asked what she has liked the most about America, she said, “All the people are so friendly, and everything looks so clean.” Students said they were looking forward to returning to their homeland and telling everyone about the amazing experiences they had in America.

PREMIER GIRLS FASTPITCH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

One bad inning keeps Artesia Punishers 16-Under team from being Premier By Loren Kopff IRVINE-Through all of the success the Artesia Punishers 16-Under travel ball team has had all summer long, head coach Roger Chavez has said that the defense is the strongest part of the team. However, it was the defense that was the bugaboo last Friday morning against the (Oak Park) So Cal Pumas. The Punishers yielded five runs in the top of the sixth and a furious rally came up short in a 7-5 loss, eliminating the team from the second annual Premier Girls Fastpitch National Championships. The Punishers finished tied for 17th place out of 65 teams in the 16-Under age division. “That’s the part that is hard to accept,” Chavez said of his defensive woes. “When things went wrong, they went wrong quickly and it was hard to catch up. We weren’t really hitting that pitcher.” The Punishers fell behind 2-0 in the top of the third but quickly tied the game in their half of the inning. Left fielder Madeline Kaplan (Harvard-Westlake High School) had a base hit, stole second and scored when second baseman Sara Foster (Millikan High School) reached on an error. That was followed by a base hit from catcher Brooke Huddleson (Mission Hills High School), which allowed Foster to tie the game. The game would stay deadlocked until the sixth but the Punishers would have their share of opportunities to break the

Both would steal a base Softball Association state tournament and and with two outs, Foster singled to the left finished in 13th out of 90 teams in the field gap to plate both of them. Colenzo, Colorado Fireworks Tournament in early Foster, Jerrick and Zeronian all went two July. “When we first embarked after high for four while Perez struck out six and scattered six hits as she worked into the sixth school, I knew we had a good team,” Chavez said. “Heading into the Las Vegas inning. Later that night, the Punishers played in Showcase…we did well over there. Then perhaps the best game of the tournament, we had the back to back qualifiers for narallying twice against the (Westminster) So tional tournaments. We were excited to Cal Choppers before scoring twice in the have that type of outcome. I think we had bottom of the ninth to escape with a 4-3 a lot of momentum coming into Nationvictory. With Jerrick beginning the bottom als.” The remaining players are: Alexandra of the ninth at second per the international tiebreaker rule, she moved to third on a Algandar (Bishop Amat High School), one-out single from Perez. Then with two Nicole Chavez (Kennedy High School), outs, Foster singled to left to tie the game Chelsea Cuevas (Lakewood High School), and Zeronian singled to right for the game Makayla Dole (Western High School), Kira Ito (Artesia High School), Alyssa winner. The Punishers banged out a dozen hits Puente (Mayfair High School), Sabrina with Huddleson going three for three and Valencia (Millikan High School) and SaFoster going three for five. Colenzo led the brina Walker (Downey High School). The team in hitting with a .609 average during assistant coaches are Jerry Gallegos, Hali the tournament. Next was Foster (.524) Mooring and Jenna Wheeler. who along with Kaplan shared the leadoff and the ninth spot in the lineup. “Maddie had been struggling to get on and Sara was producing at the bottom,” Chavez said. “For a long time Sara had been [in the leadoff spot] and was doing very well, then went into a big slump. I felt to take some of that pressure off. I dropped her down in the lineup.” Pitcher Reina Trejo (Torrance High School), who pitched in seven of the eight games over five days, went the distance.

tie. They were benefited with nine walks in the game but stranded a dozen base runners including seven through the first five innings. “It was disappointing that we weren’t able to take advantage of that,” Chavez said. “Whenever we had the right player coming up at the right time in the middle of the lineup with runners in scoring position, we just couldn’t push them across the plate.” Those runners left on base would haunt the Punishers because in the top of the sixth, the Pumas erupted for five runs on four hits and three walks, two of which occurred with the bases loaded. The Punishers, though, rallied back in their half of the frame with singles from center fielder Amanda Sandoval (North Torrance High School), Foster and Huddleson plus walks issued to Kaplan and right fielder Amy Zeronian (Marshall High School). Despite cutting their deficit to three runs, the Punishers left the bases loaded. In the seventh, Madi Perez (Fountain Valley High School) doubled and scored on the second of two straight wild pitches. Again, the Punishers left two more runners on the bags. “I don’t think they were tired [from the night before],” Chavez said. “They weren’t as focused as I wanted them to be. We had played this team in state and we had beaten them in state. So, I kind of had an idea of their style of play, which was a lot of small ball. I wanted to make sure we were ready for it. It wasn’t until we got behind that we recognized that we may be out of this tournament.” The Punishers began life in the loser’s bracket last Thursday afternoon by scoring two runs in the top of the sixth and held on for a 3-2 victory against the (Kenilworth) IL Chill. Third baseman Sydney Colenzo (Downey Calvary Chapel High School) doubled home Zeronian for the first run of the game in the top of the fifth. But in the next inning, first baseman Taylor Jerrick (Kennedy High School) and Perez had

La Tavolata By Larry Caballero When La Tavolata Fresh Pasta Café General Manager Bill Johnston and his partner Executive Chef John Huson opened their doors Jun. 1 at the City Plaza located at 11688 South Street in Artesia,

La Tavolata Fresh Pasta Cafe Executive Chef John Huson, General Manager Bill Johnston and server Alyssa Ritter are ready to provide a unique culinary experience for customers who order a variety of specialty pastas. they were pleased to hear the many comments of customers who enjoyed the variety of specialty pastas offered at reasonable prices. They met four years ago through a family friend, and Johnston liked what he saw at a restaurant owned by Huson in Bixby Knolls in Long Beach named the Trattoria Limone Pasta Café. Unfortunately, the restaurant was located in a residential area, and parking was a problem for some of the patrons. Both men are pleased with the current location because their intent is to reach out to a

business and shopping crowd during the day and local families at night. “Our goal,” said Johnston, “is to provide our customers with a unique experience with specialty Italian dishes and not only the traditional ones.” So far, their plan is succeeding. “We’ve been well received, and our customers seem to like our food,” said Johnston. Favorite dishes include Spaghetti alle Vongole with fresh clams, garlic, chiles and light marinara sauce; Fettucine al Compleanno with andoulle sausage, grilled chicken, shrimp minced red bell pepper and spicy creamy tomato sauce; and Ravioli al Pollo Affumicato with homemade hand-rolled, smoked chicken filling in pink sauce. “We garnish many of our pastas with a touch of fresh grated parmesan. We do not recommend grated cheese to be added to any seafood dish. It doesn’t go!” said Huson. Other specialties include a fried chicken sandwich in a crusty French roll with homemade jalapeno coleslaw and Melanzane al Forno, a panko-crusted eggplant, fried and baked with mozzarella and tomato-basil sauce. An extensive variety of red and white wines are available to choose from including Sangiovese, Monarcho from littleknown Marche, Italy. Homemade desserts include Homemade Tiramisu, a ladyfinger sponge dipped in sweet coffee-rum-marsala blend, layed with sweet mascarpone and dusted with bittersweet cocoa powder, vanilla and raspberry sauces.

Continued from page 1 • Conduct a national search. ABC staff would coordinate the search and screening process at a cost between $8,000 to $10,000 plus expenses. • Hire an interim Superintendent. Cost: $2,000 to $5,000 depending on scope of recruitment and screening. • Appoint a candidate from outside the school district at minimal cost. • Appoint a candidate from inside the school district at a minimal cost. The Board narrowed in on the first and fifth approach. Board member James Kang praised Dr. Sieu and he felt she was well qualified for the position. At the same time he would like to see a national search with Dr. Sieu being one of the candidates. That way, he said, he would feel they had selected the best candidate. The Board majority however, said with the state of the economy and uncertainty what Sacramento will do next effecting the state’s schools, they felt they needed someone who not only was more than qualified for the position but someone who knew the district, its teachers and staff and the community at large, noting that she was the immediate past president of the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce. Board Member Celica Spitzer favored naming Dr. Sieu to the post. She said Dr. Sieu has worked with Dr. Smuts for the past five years and it would be a natural flow for her to be named superintendent. “I see no need to look outside the district,” she stated. “We have a very highly qualified person in house to fill this position.” Board Member Olympia Chen said

TO ADVERTISE CALL 800-901-7211

the ABC community respects Dr. Sieu. They know her, trust her and they also work very well with her. She knows many people. Teachers will talk to her about their classrooms and are very comfortable working with her.” Chen also noted that Dr. Sieu recently “graduated” from the office of President of the Chamber of Commerce and the members have a very high respect for her. She also noted that Dr. Sieu was responsible for many of the Grants the District has received. Board member Sophia Tse agreed that Dr. Sieu has the respect of everyone. Getting an outside person to fill the Superintendent’s position is going to be very hard for the District, students and teachers. She said Dr. Sieu knows the District, it’s budget, asking why bring in someone who doesn’t know ABC. It will be hard on the District, she asserted. She thanked Dr. Sieu for being here. Board Member Kang asked what was involved in the first option to conduct an outside search. Dr. Smuts said the District would hire an outside firm or individual to do an outside search that would take between three to six months before the Board would make a decision on the candidates. He said whoever was hired would work be responsible to the Board of Education. Kang said he personally liked Dr. Sieu and would make a good superintendent. However he favored a search committee to look at candidates both inside and outside the District. He said to him it is a matter of principle. Board Member Reyes said given the fiscal situation in the state, the last thing the District need is a vacuum. He stated, “ We need stability, We need someone who can step in and give us continuity.“

He said he favored Dr. Sieu to fill the position. Board President Maynard Law said, “We wouldn’t be where we are now if Dr. Sieu wasn’t here.” He said he saw no reason to have a nationwide search when we have Dr. Sieu here. The Board then voted unanimously to name Dr. Sieu Superintendent effect July 1, 2012. GIRLS SOFTBALL

The adopted reforms included a second tier retirement plan for future employees that will provide lower benefits, and it increases the retirement age for safety and non-safety employees. It also requires current employees to begin paying for a portion of their retirement costs. Mayor Rodriguez said, “The contributions that the employees are making to make this budget work are not lost on me. We have had pain and cuts across this organization in various ways, and the ones that hit people directly hurt the most. The employees have stepped up and their efforts are appreciated.” Lazzaretto said, “The City Council’s

number one goal for 2011 was to adopt a fully balanced budget without cutting services or raising user fees. Thanks to the employees, we can proudly say that the goal has been achieved.”
