to Cash in on City Council Relationships

By Brian Hews and Randy Economy (Commerce) Hews Media GroupCommunity News has received a copy of a response letter written by Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey that confirmed that Central Basin Municipal Water District Board President James Roybal leaked a confidential internal document to the Whittier Daily News pertaining to a closed session discussion about former Interim Chief Operating Officer Chuck Fuentes. The letter was in response to a complaint sent to the DA that alleged improper disclosure of confidential information approved in a closed session, which is a violation of Government Code Section 54956.9. The letter stated, “based upon a June 3 (2013) memorandum from (CBMWD GM) Tony Perez, it would appear the details of the agreement disclosed to the WDN were subject to confidentiality clause and were not to be released.” Fuentes was fired from the agency in December by a new voting Board majority that consists of Director Leticia Vasquez, Director Robert Apodaca and Roybal.

The discussion over Loftus Corporation’s request to expand their auto impound yard was continued at the Norwalk City Council meeting on August 7, but still no decision was reached. The applicant was unable to attend the meeting and requested the item be moved to September 3. It will be opened back up to public comment at that time as well.

(Commerce) A group of vocal Commerce activists are criticizing a city job application process to hire a new Public Information Officer claiming that the position was essentially political payback for the current city employee, Jason Stinnett, who was a political consultant to three current members of the city council. Stinnett, who is the Acting Public Information Officer for Commerce, now appears to be on the verge of receiving a new role in the City that will pay him anywhere from $6,600 to $8,800 per month in salary as well as full time benefit package that includes medical insurance, dental, vision, and retirement. Stinnett has been a strong force in Commerce area politics for the past number of years and has worked in the past to get current city elected officials Lilia Leon, Tina Baca Del Rio, Ivan Alramira-

Quarantine Declared in Artesia, Cerritos as Oriental Fruit Fly ‘Runs Rampant’ By Justin Cooley The Oriental Fruit Fly is back in both Artesia and Cerritos prompting state officials to take action on Wednesday by declaring a quarantine in the two communities.

A quarantine zone was also called for in the Anaheim area of Orange County. State officials confirmed to Hews Media Group-Community News that “a number of adult flies and larvae have been discovered on properties within the quar-

antine zone.” The oriental fruit fly is known to damage over 230 different fruits and vegetables. Infestation occurs when the fruit flies lay larvae eggs within the flesh of the vegetation. The insect threatens numerous California crops although most infestations occur in urban areas. The Oriental Fruit Fly is small – about the same size as a housefly – but is pure evil to farmers in California. In the 1970’s the pesky bug destroyed walnut, cherry, grape, pepper and tomato crops in Central California. Other zones include portions of cities including: Buena Park, Cypress, and Stanton. The zone continues south to Westminster Blvd. The CDFA will be following past Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principals in its eradication effort. The “male attractant” technique is method previously used in other quarantined zones that has successfully eradicated the pest. Workers will spray small patches of fly attractant mixed with pesticides 8-10 feet off the ground on streets and other areas. After consuming the pesticides the flies will die. For more information about the project call the department’s Pest Hotline at 1-800-491-1899. Maps of the treatment areas are available online at: www.cdfa. ca.gov/plant/go/FFmaps-peps

In an interview with Hews Media Group-Community News, Ramirez-Perez said, “This is our third consecutive year participating in this event and it seems like each year it just gets better and better… We look forward to returning again next year.” Ramirez-Perez also commented that the event has been a great opportunity to meet new people. “They had really good stories to share as far as how cancer has affected their lives and how they look forward to donating each year.” In other items, city council also honored six of Norwalk’s hometown heroes. Most of the honored military men and women are currently on active duty in the United States Armed Forces and were not able to attend the meeting. Family members came on their behalf and were presented with a banner of their loved one. The Hometown Heroes presented at the August 7 meeting were Timothy Hariper of the US Marines, Jacqueline Jaramillo of the US Army, Emilio Mendizabel of the US Army, Joshua Proffitt of the US Army, Louis Vasquez of the US Army, and brothers Andrew and Patrick Unite who serve together in the US Navy.

marks when compared to other schools throughout the country. For instance, while the state’s high school graduation rate in 2012 was 78.5%, the graduation rate in NLMUSD the last two years was 92%. This year, our seniors also self reported that 80 percent of them planned to attend college, including prominent universities such as Harvard and MIT. This kind of success is attributed to our very dedicated and focused instructional program. Our hard working teachers and staff have received accolades for maintaining a rigorous and relevant core curriculum at all grade levels. From a strong transitional Kindergarten program that prepares our students to be academically challenged, to our career academies that lay the groundwork for the challenging high school programs, there is no question that our students are reaping the benefits of a strong academic environment. As we move forward this year serving our Norwalk and La Mirada families, I anticipate another year of success. We have begun implementation of Common Core Standards and we are reviewing the impacts the new state funding structure will have on our schools. With the leadership of our very capable and student-focused Board of Education, the next 10 months will see high academic achievement in a rich learning environment that engages and emboldens our students to achieve greatness.

Thousands Attend India Independence Day

Thousands of local Indo-Americans Former gathered in Artesia and Norwalk two Miss World weeks ago to cel- Priyanka ebrate India’s Inde- Chopra pendence Day. Every year in Artesia at Artesia Park and in Norwalk at Excelsior High School celebrations are held to commemorate the event, and this year was no exception. India’s Independence Day is a place for people of the various 28 states and seven union territories to come together and celebrate the anniversary of India’s Independence from the British rule in August of 1947. This year the 67th Anniversary of Independence Day festivities took place on August 3rd with an appearance from former Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra. Ms. Chopra sat down with members of the committee of United Federation of Indo-Americans of California (UFICA) and the Federation of Indo-American Associations of Southern California (FIA-SC) on the stage, set up at Excelsior High School and talked for around 20 minutes to promote her new album ‘Exotic,’ which has

been making waves recently. Ms. Chopra is a famous Bollywood star from India who won the Miss World pageant at the young age of 17 and later ventured to her modeling and film career, which is still active. Recently, Chopra has been making a wave in Hollywood not only to support her already illustrious career, but also to challenge the stereotypes in Hollywood regarding Indians. She hopes to bring a fresh view through her upcoming film where she portrays Mary Kom, the famous boxer from Manipur, a state situated in northeast India. She has also lent her voice to the Disney-UTV animation ‘Planes,’ for the character of Ishani. The film is set to be released on Aug. 9 of this year. Other endeavors of hers included her very first single featuring will.i.am in the song ‘In My City.’ Additionally, her new album ‘Exotic’ has garnered much attention. The song with Pitbull titled ‘Exotic’ from the album has propelled Chopra into the global music industry. With Chopra’s fresh approach to music, which infuses Hindi words and English words, the Indian culture makes a strong presence in her music, giving off a new vibe. Ms. Chopra has been making a big mark on Hollywood, unprecedented by any other Bollywood actor before.

College Hospital Accused of ‘Unsafe Work Environment’ by Employees By Kristin Grafft A local psychiatric hospital in Cerritos is under attack by employees, community members and now the Service Employees International Union, with allegations of unsafe working conditions and endangerment to the community. Christian Bobadilla, a mental health worker at College Hospital, spoke at the Cerritos City Council meeting on Thursday, August 15 in an attempt to raise awareness of the issues occurring at the hospital. “I’ve been bit, I’ve been stabbed by my own pen, I’ve been working with a dislocated shoulder, and also many of my coworkers have been stabbed working there,” Bobadilla said. Bobadilla also discussed the recurring problem of escaping patients (AWOLs). “Because of a lack of staff in our units, even when we call for help when patients are AWOLing, there is a lack of staff that can respond to the codes.” These AWOLs have created a problem that extends past the confines of the hospital and into the surrounding community. Bobadilla explained that many residents are scared to “even be around when they see the sheriff department rushing through the community looking for our patients.” However, Samantha Feld, the Director of Corporate Risk Management and the attorney for College Hospital, told Hews Media Group-Community News in

By Randy Economy The campaign for Los Angeles Sheriff took a dramatic turn on Wednesday when former commander Bob Olmsted, 62, announced that he will be a challenger against Sheriff Lee Baca in 2014. Hews Media Group-Community News was alerted that Olmsted would indeed be challenging Baca via campaign advisor John Thomas. “Sheriff Lee Baca’s mismanagement is to blame for numerous corruption scandals and federal investigations. Change has to come from the top,” Olmsted told HMG-CN. “Bob Olmsted is a proven reformer. As a commander, he was unafraid to call attention to the corruption in the men’s central jail system. After his retirement, he was willing to talk openly about the widespread dysfunction and corruption that has resulted in multiple federal investigations and a long string of departmental scandals,” Thomas said in a statement. “Now Olmsted wants to take his over 32 years of experience as a highlyregarded supervisor, as a teacher of criminal justice and, most importantly, as a law officer with the courage to stand up for what’s right, and use it to bring back honor and good policing to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s department,” the statement continued. “On Wednesday the Olmsted campaign launched a web video highlighting Lee Baca’s record of mismanagement and corruption while introducing Olmsted to members of the media and public,” Thomas said.

a statement that the complaints of alleged unsafe working conditions only began once SEIU got involved. Feld explained that the hospital has been in the process of negotiating with SEIU and that they remain “committed to bargaining in good faith.” However, Feld also said, “It is unfortunate, but not surprising, that SEIU has now resorted to smearing the reputation of College Hospital and its employees with false claims regarding patient care and workplace safety.” Feld said that La Casa Mental Health Rehabilitation Center in Long Beach, whom SEIU is also in negotiations with, underwent similar accusation recently. In an interview with Sean Wherley, a communications specialist from SEIU, he said that their goal is “to raise awareness about the violence and disorder at the facility and the effect that it has on the surrounding neighborhoods and, in turn to rectify the situation.” Wherley said their reason for taking it to the city council was because, “The city has a role to play and they should be concerned about patients that are escaping into the neighborhoods. As elected officials I know they take public safety seriously.” Wherley told HMG-CN in the past that some of the changes they are hoping to see at the hospital include a $2 per hour raise in the first year and other considerations.

Nielsen, who was also Gahr’s college recruiting coordinator, left amidst a slew of Facebook posts pertaining to an incoming freshman who is competing for a spot on the varsity squad. Nielsen informed Gahr head coach Greg Marshall via text of his resignation and according to Nielsen, Marshall did not respond until 24 hours later. During his time at Gahr, Nielsen’s work with the offense has propelled the program to have one of the top passing teams in the state, as well as the nation. In addition, nearly a dozen and a half players have received scholarships in the past decade. “I wasn’t comfortable with the position I was put in with all of the different things that transpired the last couple of months,� Nielsen said. “It was more of a professional than a personal move because of the things that were put in play.� The whole issue centers around Kobee Lagarde, an incoming freshman who was enrolled at Long Beach Cabrillo High School but has recently transferred to Gahr. According to Nielsen, Marvin Lagarde, Kobee’s father, conversed with Gahr freshman football coach Rob Godwin on Facebook in early February about

Kobee potentially attending Gahr. But throughout the summer, more posts surfaced about Kobee Lagarde actually coming to Gahr and competing with junior Will Latham and sophomore Nico Lopez. Nielsen’s nephew Colby, another incoming freshman, was also thought to be in competition of the job. But that all changed when Nielsen found out about Lagarde. “It’s not even really about Colby

up at spring practice unannounced and began throwing on the side with former Gahr wide receiver Patrick Enewally and others. Nielsen talked with Marshall on May 25 about Lagarde, who spent most of the summer practicing with Cabrillo. The two agreed that all potential incoming freshmen would be able to compete for the varsity job. During Gahr’s first passing game with Westminster, Nielsen let his nephew throw the last series of the day in which

Jon Nielsen [r] resigned as Offensive Coordinator for Gahr High School. Nielsen being in the mix,� Nielsen said. “My nephew Colby is not ready to play on varsity right now. I don’t think any incoming freshman quarterback is ready to play on varsity for that matter. My hand was forced with all the information I uncovered the last couple of days. I had to walk away from the whole situation.� According to Nielsen, Lagarde showed

he went seven for nine with a touchdown. The next day, Marshall told Jon Nielsen that it wouldn’t be a good idea to have Colby throw during the varsity practices and passing games because it would make [Marshall] look bad and show nepotism towards Colby. “There was no disagreement [with Jon],� Marshall said. “I’m the head football coach. It’s my decision and that’s that.� On July 30, Nielsen received a text from Marshall stating that the projected number one quarterback for this season

was ruled ineligible. It was about that time when Lagarde transferred out of Cabrillo. Over the next several days, posts and pictures began surfacing on Facebook about Lagarde coming to Gahr. One of the pictures posted by Marvin Lagarde shows his son and three Gahr receivers. “I’ve tried to build a sense of pride for the program the past 10 years,� Jon Nielsen said. “I’ve been proud with what we’ve done with the scholarships and those different things. But do the powers that be care about that? Probably not. “I take pride with what we’ve done with the ‘G’,� Nielsen later added. “We put Gahr, with what we did on offense, on the map. As many people that may have a problem with that, you go talk to those 17 plus kids, and their parents, that got scholarships because of that and ask them,’ how did that work out for you’?� Marshall said that this is the first time in his tenure at Gahr that he will have some freshmen play on varsity. He reiterated that Lagarde did get a permit, transferred to Gahr and is enrolled at Gahr. Marshall also added that he and Jon Nielsen had several conversations about bringing [freshmen] to the varsity squad and that everyone is evaluated. “Just like all of the other freshmen, if on varsity there is a hole [in any position] and if we think they can compete for a job, we’ll bring them up,� Marshall said. “This is the first time we’ve had to bring up some freshmen.� In 2007, Nielsen’s oldest nephew, Corey, led the state with 4,363 passing yards, which stood as third best in state history at the time. Two years later, Nielsen’s other nephew, Casey, passed for 4,416 yards and 41 touchdowns, bumping Corey to fourth best all-time in state history. From 2007-2011, Gahr quarterbacks have thrown for well over 18,000 yards and 160 touchdowns. “It’s high school football, so I don’t think [his work] is going to be missed,� Marshall said. “It’s another season. Kids grow up and you have new kids coming in. Jon had been with us and he had done some good things for us.� “This is the first time in 10 years I’ve been a free agent,� Jon Nielsen said. “I’m going to enjoy my Friday nights off this season. I have plenty of time to revisit my football coaching career and I don’t think I am going to have a hard time finding another coaching job. Truth is, I would have been happy staying at Gahr until my son got to high school, but life is about change and sometimes change is needed for growth. “I want to say thank you to the administration and staff at Gahr High School,� he continued. “I thank Greg Marshall, I thank [Gahr principal] Gina Zietlow for allowing me to work on my craft for 10 years. Do I leave with any animosity or any hard feelings? Absolutely not.�

Continued from page 1 In the letter, the District Attorney declined to take action on the disclosure, referring the matter back to the embroiled agency that has been a focal point of a massive investigation by members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the past several months. The District Attorney cited the California Government Code 54963 that states “violations can result in disciplinary action against the employee who willfully disclosed confidential information and/or referral of the member to the grand jury.” HMG-CN has learned that, based on the response letter from the District Attorney, the CBMWD Ethics Committee will convene a meeting this Friday Aug 16 at 10 a.m. to investigate the allegations against Roybal. The Ethics Committee is composed of two District Directors, Phil Hawkins of Cerritos and Art Chacon of Commerce along with General Manager Tony Perez, as well as the agencies Human Resource Manager, Board Secretary, District General Counsel, and other district employees. If Roybal is determined to have violated any part of the state statues by the group, the matter could be referred to the California Fair Political Practices Commission, the California Attorney General, or back to the District Attorney’s office for further action. “It is very clear that Roybal violated the code,” said one source inside the CBMWD that declined to be identified. “I cannot see the Ethics Committee not concluding that Roybal violated the code, and that proper action should be taken against him,” the source said. If the committee does find Roybal in violation, he can appeal the decision within five business days, according to state code. Sources also tell HMG-CN that the Ethics Committee “will in all likelyhood submit its findings involving Roybal, along with any dissent, to the Board of Directors for action that could take place as early as next week.” “At this point I am outraged that an elected Director of the Central Basin Municipal Water District has blatantly broken the law,” Hawkins said in an interview with HNG-CN on Wednesday afternoon. Hawkins said he will ask the Central Basin’s attorney for “a list of options on what action we can take against Director Roybal.” “Roybal is an elected official. He is putting the district in jeopardy. We need to take action in this situation as soon as possible,” said Hawkins. “Once we have the investigation, we will determine if he should resign,” said Hawkins.

NORWALK

Continued from page 1 his time anyway. Kenneth Arnold, the designer for Loftus Corporation, spoke on behalf of the applicant. Arnold said, “Our goal all along was to try to make the project residentfriendly and I think some of the resident just don’t understand some of the things that were trying to do to help.” Jerry Ori, a Norwalk resident, argued that their attempts to make a “buffer zone” by making the expanded area employee parking, was “really unrealistic.” Ori said he didn’t think they would actually park there, and if they did it would be in the way of the tow truck drivers. Ori also said there would be no cost

benefit in going through with the expansion. “I don’t know how many thousands or hundreds of thousands (of dollars) it’s going to take to put in that wall, to knock down the old wall, to put in a gate – for what purpose? – To have employees or customers park there? It isn’t going to happen. They need to come up with a better plan.” Not everyone is opposed to Loftus’ plans anymore though. Tony Aldana, a homeowner whose property borders the impound yard, spoke at the July 2 meeting “vehemently opposed” to the expansion. At this meeting, Aldana said his only issue is with how long the construction might take. “Once they tear the wall down those four homes will be accessible to anyone who goes up that roadway,” Aldana said. Other than that, Aldana said, “As long as the wall is structurally sound I’m okay with the whole project.” Aldana even went so far to say that he actually thinks the area will be safer having the ten-foot wall there. With no further public comments, the item was then moved to the September 3 meeting. However, later in the night, Ori returned to the podium during oral communications. This time Ori said he had talked to Arnold and he believed that Loftus might be considering withdrawing their application all together. The discussion for that item was already closed for that meeting though and no one could respond to those comments. The next meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 22 at the City Hall Council Chambers.

COMMERCE

Continued from page 1 no, and Joe Aguilar into office. Stinnett in the past has also overseen a local political website www.savecommerce.org. The web site actively promoted the campaigns for Leon, Baca Del Rio, Alramirano and Aguilar, and others in the past, and criticized outside challengers who have sought public office in Commerce. “My concern is that this job is not open to anyone with better qualifications from outside of Commerce,” said Jamie Valencia a longtime community activist. “It appears more like rewarding your political friends who got you elected to office. We need someone who doesn’t have a bias view of the city.” In an interview with the Commerce Community News, Commerce City Administrator Jorge Rifa was asked if the PIO job was created “specifically for Stinnett.” Rifa paused and replied: “I understand the question. All I can tell you is it is my intention to basically put a recruitment process as requested by the city council, and I have done that.” “I will confirm that I will be responsible for deciding who lands the (PIO) job and that includes the final process,” Rifa said. Rifa did not want to elaborate on Stinnett’s employment at the City of Commerce. “I have no comment regarding Jason’s tenure other than to say he is our acting Public Information Officer.” Valencia was direct in his displeasure with Stinnett and the “back room deals that are being cut to take care of him.” Valencia said, “Jason has a bias view based upon the fact that he ran the campaigns for four current city councilmembers including Mayor Joe Aguilar, Vice Mayor Lela Leon, Councilman Ivan Alramirano, and Councilwoman Tina Baca

DeRio. The public has the right to know what’s going on inside city hall and we deserve a public information officer who doesn’t have a political agenda of his own,” Valencia said. Stinnett did not return three phone calls requesting a comment for this article, and did not respond to an email sent to him this past week. Stinnett has indicated that he will be a candidate for the Central Basin Water District Board of Directors in 2014 and run against incumbent Art Chacon who is a longtime resident of Commerce. Valencia said that he is “deeply troubled” by Stinnett’s planned campaign. “It is obvious that Jason is using his position to leverage his own career in politics.” Valencia also voiced his dismay regarding a recent city bond campaign that he claimed Stinnett used “heavy handed” campaign tactics. “My concern is that this past voter approved AA Bond Measure was run with taxpayer funds and that Jason had a role handling that campaign effort,” Valencia said. “I feel that employees are scared of Jason because the way he helps the city council and the city council protects him. Jason manipulates city workers,” Valencia said. Another longtime city employee who has worked for more than 20 years in Commerce, who did not want to be publicly identified for fear of retaliation said, “the city of Commerce doesn’t need a full time Public Information Officer at this time, especially someone with a track

record like Stinnett. Jason is the most influential person in Commerce; he is more powerful than all five city councilmembers combined. He is going to get this job based on his political power, not because he is the qualified,” the source said. Stinnett is also listed a Vice President of the American Federation of State County Municipal Employees, District #36 for Local 773 Commerce Employees Association. A member of the union, who did not want to be named, said “Jason plays both sides of the fence. Because of Jason, we got a lousy contract for the city workers.” “Jason is the Robert Rizzo of Commerce,” one other source said. “He isn’t likeable, he is politically savvy, but just watch your wallet.”

DOCENTS

Continued from page 7 at one time rural and was all known as Artesia. The docents also give vital support to the Society’s educational outreach program. That program provides school tours to third grade classes in all local schools and has been designed to support the California State Social Studies curriculum for that grade level, which focuses on learning about local history. During their visit the students tour both museums, enjoy making a craft that supports what they’ve learned during their visit, and they play historical games such as croquet. At the end of the tour each student receives a booklet with information and games that reinforce their experience. Last year over 1,000 people, including students and adult chaperones visited the two museums as part of the outreach program. The program is fully funded by the Artesia Historical Society and includes a bus scholarship program for those classes that apply and qualify. The bus scholarship is provided so that all students are allowed an opportunity to experience the field trip whether school transportation funding is available or not in these difficult economic times. Consistently the students rave about their experience and teachers return every year with a new class of students. The public is encouraged to visit these “hidden treasure” museums, which are located on 187th Street at the corners of Alburtis Avenue (Artesia Historical Museum) and Corby Avenue (Old Fire Station #30).

Suburban League’s top spots while Gahr figures to be young By Loren Kopff Sports editor’s note: This is the first of several area football previews that will continue throughout the rest of the month. ARTESIA PIONEERS 4-6 overall last season, 3-3 in the Suburban League, tied for fourth place, 13-38 overall last five seasons Head coach: Joe Veach (fourth full season, 6-31) Lost 11 seniors out of 37 from 2012 opening day roster Last time made the playoffs: 2008 2013 schedule Aug. 30 Millikan (0-10 overall last season) Sept. 6 Los Angeles Jordan (0-8) Sept.12 @ San Juan Hills (7-3) Sept. 20 Gahr (5-5) Sept. 27 Mayfair (4-6) Oct. 4 (HC) Cerritos (0-10) Oct. 11 @ Norwalk (9-3) Oct. 18 BYE Oct. 25 Bellflower (6-5) Nov. 1 @ John Glenn (2-8) Nov. 8 @ La Mirada (10-2) Artesia ended last season on a threegame winning streak, one being a forfeit victory, and scored 82 points in the process. But the Pioneers were also two points away from beating Mayfair, which probably cost the team a trip to the playoffs. Still, head coach Joe Veach believes that the final few weeks of last season was a springboard for this season and the 2013 squad could very well be the best team he has had at Artesia. “Last year we ended on a great note,” Veach said. “Since I’ve been here at Artesia, it always seems like we finish [the season] playing our best football of the year. It takes us a little bit to get going; to find our groove. This year we’re trying to not reverse that; we don’t want to end playing bad. But we really emphasize to the kids to come out of the gates playing great football.” OFFENSE The offense scored 43 more points, in nine games, than it did in a 10-game campaign 2011, Of the 237 points scored, 105 were produced in the first half alone in the first eight games and the Pioneers scored on their first drive in the first three games. The biggest loss comes at the quarter-

back position with Francisco Galan having graduated. But Veach plans to throw a twist in the offensive attack by having junior star running back Cristian Rodriguez take some snaps from under center. When he’s not, juniors Jaydon Logan, who missed all summer, and Jimmy Rodriguez will compete for the starting spot. Cristian and Jimmy Rodriguez took all of the reps during the summer. But make no mistake, running the ball will be the strong point in Artesia’s offense, highlighted by Cristian Rodriguez who rushed for 760 yards as a sophomore. Only Galan had more yards in 2012. “Last year towards the second half of the season, we realized that we can run the ball much more successfully than we could throw the ball,” Veach said. “And it wasn’t a quarterback issue. I think last year it was more of a receiver issue. We didn’t have a lot of experience in receivers.” Also in the backfield will be seniors Jose Soto, coming back from a separated left shoulder, and Manny Rivera and junior Vincent Brown, who was used more as a running back last season and whom Veach says ‘could turn things around’. A quartet of seniors will be the leading targets for the quarterbacksIsaiah Benoit, Troy Daniels, Anthony Roldan and Tytus Simmons. Veach added that he would like his slot receivers and running backs to be interchangeable. “I’ve always thought that the biggest improvement you see in a high school football player is from their sophomore to their junior year,” Veach said. “That’s how I felt about myself when I played. If you can have some success as a sophomore, that’s great. But if not, you really know who’s going to be a player when they’re a junior. That should scare people about Cristian. There are a lot of possibilities for him.” The offensive line is well experienced with senior Lene Lauti at the left tackle spot, seniors Abraham Chavez and Wvaldo Juarez battling at left guard, senior Fidel Palomo at center, senior David Garibay or Chavez at right guard and senior Sean Manlapaz or Juarez at right tackle. Veach says the team is not going to throw as much even though running typically leads to fewer points scored because of clock management. But the Pioneers will be more explosive running the ball than last year. DEFENSE After allowing over 500 points in 2010

TO ADVERTISE CALL 800-901-7211

and 433 in 2011, the Pioneers yielded 323 last season despite giving up 40 or more points four times. With six seniors battling for five spots on the offensive fine, whoever is left out will definitely start on the defensive line. Also in the mix will be junior Enoka Sautia. The secondary is solid with Daniels and Simmons as the safeties, Rivera and Roldan as the cornerbacks and Logan, Cristian Rodriguez, Jimmy Rodriguez and senior Jordan Bumpas rounding out the unit. Benoit and Soto move from the secondary to be outside linebackers while Brown will be another outside linebacker with junior Devon King holding down an inside linebacker spot. “This defense, with so many guys coming back…we’ve really simplified things from what we did years ago,” Veach said. “We had such a lack of talent in 2010 that we tried to line up the perfect defense every single game. The following year, we said let’s simplify it and create an identity. And we did and we saw things start to change.” SCHEDULE The schedule early on favors Artesia with a pair of games against winless teams of 2012. Artesia will hope to avenge a 3813 loss to Aaron Flowers and San Juan Hills in the second week. Due to a twist in the Suburban League schedule, Artesia visits Mayfair for a second straight season but will host La Mirada for a second straight encounter. Homecoming is against Cerritos and the last time that happened, the Dons came away with a 27-20 victory. “I really haven’t thought about going into league what I want our record to be,” Veach said. “I just want us to play good football and get better every single game that we play. Right now we’re worried about lining up and playing Millikan.” Veach says all 10 games will be circled because each one presents a different incentive to win. Artesia will be looking to defeat Gahr and win the coveted Milk Barrel for the first time since 2008. The Pioneers are winless against Mayfair in over 15 years and have a winning record against one league team since 1998, that being John Glenn with an 11-4 mark. GAHR GLADIATORS 5-5 overall last season, 2-3 in the San Gabriel Valley League, fourth place, 2823 overall last five seasons Head coach: Greg Marshall (11th season, 58-46) Lost 22 seniors out of 56 from 2012 opening day roster

Last time made the playoffs: 2009 2013 schedule Aug. 30 Lakewood (8-3 overall last season) Sept. 6 @ Narbonne (14-1) Sept. 13 Cerritos (0-10) Sept. 20 @ Artesia (4-6) Sept. 27 La Habra (8-4) Oct. 4 BYE Oct. 10 Warren (0-10) Oct. 18 @ Paramount (8-3) Oct. 25 (HC) Downey (11-3) Nov. 1 @ Dominguez (6-6) Nov. 8 @ Lynwood (3-7) After going 7-3 but missing the playoffs in 2011, the Gladiators stumbled to a 5-5 mark for the second time in three seasons and fourth since 2006. The departure of over 20 seniors to graduation was just the beginning of what might be a very long season for head coach Greg Marshall. For the first time ever, he is having freshmen compete for spots on the varsity squad and as of the middle of August, the team has more freshmen and sophomores combined than juniors and seniors put together. “It was disappointing because we had a [big] senior squad,” Marshall said of last season. “But we had some intangibles. We had a new quarterback and we didn’t know how he would perform. I’m not blaming the season on him but we didn’t perform to our expectations. Offensively we struggled quite a bit in the big games. It’s been that way for the last three years. In the big games, we’re not scoring points.” OFFENSE The scoring tailed off tremendously last season from previous campaigns, scoring 281 points. And, in all five losses, the team scored 13, 14, seven, five and three points respectively. Gahr will have a new, unproven quarterback as junior Will Latham, who was a wide receiver last season, sophomore Nico Lopez and freshman Kobee Lagarde, a transfer from Long Beach Cabrillo High, are all battling for the starting spot. Latham will be more of a running quarterback and as of now, is the leading candidate to get the starting nod. It will be a big change from the past as Gahr has had just one quarterback, for the most part, with little to no competition to deal with. Junior Taylor Williams and sophomore Jacob Green will be the top two guys in the backfield while junior Leotis Johnson III will get some time handling the pigskin. Gahr took a major hit when senior Christian Pabico, who led the team with 837 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, transferred to Long Beach Poly. When he’s not under center, Latham, who caught for 520 yards last season, will be used as one of the receivers. The other returning top receiver is junior Andre Casillas. Sophomores Keynin Charbonnet Pounds, Justin Garrett and De’Jah Pickett will also be in the mix and all three had

good summers according to Marshall. ”It’s going to look somewhat like last year but we’re going to have more multiple motions and shifts; some of the stuff we did four years ago,” Marshall said. “We’re going to try to mix it up a little offensively. Hopefully in those big games, we’ll manage more points. We’re definitely going to get back to running our fly and get some play action back in our offense.” The big concern on offense will be up front where only junior Troy Orozco returns as a starter. A right tackle last season, Orozco will move two spots to his left this season. Seniors Jose Diaz and Roy Martinez will most likely be the guards while junior Marcus Kelly is slated to be one of the starting tackles. DEFENSE While the offense will be very young, Marshall believes the strength of the team will be the defense, which allowed 237 points last season with five games of yielding no more than 21 points. Senior Rufus Gray and junior Ryan Bolanos return on the line while senior Keileen Hubbard and junior Christopher Rodriguez, who both saw some time at the end of last season, are two linemen that Marshall is counting on. At linebacker will be seniors Christian Bustos, Raymond Mosley, who had 24 tackles and a team-high five sacks last season, Bolanos and Williams. The secondary will be anchored by Johnson, who was a strong safety last season but will play free safety this season, Latham and Pickett, who will be the cornerbacks. “The defense has outplayed the offense the last couple of years,” Marshall said. “The offense has put up a lot of points but no wins. I think defensively we’ve gone out there and did our job.” SCHEDULE Gahr’s schedule might be the toughest that Marshall has had in his 11 seasons and it all starts with a rematch against Lakewood, which blasted the Gladiators 38-13 in Week Zero last season. It goes from bad to worse when the Gladiators travel to defending Los Angeles City Section champion Narbonne, which lost to Corona Centennial in the Open Division state title game. Narbonne outscored its opponents 622-143 last season which included a 56-0 win over Long Beach Poly and a 61-6 victory over Lakewood. Gahr also has to deal with defending Southeast Division champion Downey on homecoming night. “Lakewood has a new coach and they’re trying to find themselves,” Marshall said. “Who knows what they’re going to look like in the first game. I thought we played pretty well against them last year.” Since returning to the San Gabriel Valley League in 2006 after four seasons of being a freelance team, the Gladiators have gone 17-18 in league action with two wins against Dominguez and one win against Downey.

Olympic Medal of Brenda Villa Shown at Commerce Central Library By Randy Economy The medals of Olympic champion Brenda Villa were on display at the City of Commerce Central Library, giving the community the opportunity to see upclose her treasured awards. Villa also visited the popular community facility this past week and visited with several friends, family members and fans. Villa started swimming with a club team, Commerce Aquatics, at the age of six, and followed her brother into water polo at eight years old. She made the girl’s Junior Olympic Team while in high school. At Bell Gardens High School, Villa played with the boys’ water polo team because her school did not have a girls’ team, and went on to become a 4-time 1st team All-League, 4-time 1st team All-C.I.F. and 4-time All-American. Villa came to Stanford in 1998 as the program’s most heralded recruit. Redshirted in 1999 and 2000 to train for the Olympics, she scored 69 goals her freshman year (2001) and was named the NCAA Women’s Water Polo Player of the Year. In the three seasons Villa played for Stanford University, she scored 172 goals. In 2002 she led her Stanford team with 60 goals to win the NCAA Women’s Water Polo Championship; they had finished second the previous season, the first year the competition was held. Villa was awarded the 2002 Peter J. Cutino Award as the top female college water polo player in the

United States. Villa has been on Team USA since 1998. Although the shortest player on the US national women’s water polo team at 5’4”, Villa has been a prolific scorer at the international level. She scored 10 goals for Team USA at the 2003 Pan American Games, which qualified the team for the 2004 Summer Olympics. As a 20-year-old, she led the US team with nine goals at the Sydney Olympics, where the Americans took the silver medal. She had a team-high 13 goals to lead the US to gold at the 2003 FINA Water Polo World Championship. In June 2004, Villa scored the first goal in overtime, her third of the game, and another in a penalty shootout, to propel the US team past Hungary and win the gold medal at the

Gatto’s ‘California Broken Parking Meter Ticket’ Law Signed by Gov. Brown Sacramento, CA – Assemblyman Mike Gatto’s (D-Los Angeles) legislation to prohibit local governments from fleecing motorists who park at broken parking meters was signed by Governor Brown. Gatto introduced the bill in January 2013 due to outrage, both popular and personal, at cities who were changing their parking laws to make them unfair to motorists. The measure will ensure cities such as Los Angeles fix their broken meters in a responsive and timely manner by prohibiting them from ticketing cars parked at such meters. In response to Assemblyman Gatto’s legislation, the Los Angeles City Council rushed to temporarily repeal their ordinance that allows for ticketing at broken meters, but voted to preserve their ability to reinstate the unfair policy after a sixmonth trial. AB 61 would eliminate this authority and allow motorists to park in spaces controlled by a broken meter for the maximum time allowed by the meter. “Local control‘ does not provide a right to fleece taxpayers,“ said Gatto. “The question of parking at a broken meter should not be up for review or reconsideration every six months, nor should motorists be subject to confusing ordinances as they drive from city to city. It’s time to end this unfair practice throughout California.” AB 61 guarantees that parking spots remain available to the motorists, shop owners, and small businesses that rely on them, even when the meter is not working properly. This was the law in California from 1935 to 2012, until a few cities began considering ordinances to reverse it, and the Los Angeles City Council actually passed an ordinance allowing for the ticketing of drivers who park at broken meters. “Taxpayers already pay for street maintenance, meter installation, and meter upkeep,” said Gatto. “Local governments should take responsibility and keep parking meters in good working order, not squeeze a double-penalty out of cash-strapped citizens.” An NBC4 investigative report found that, in a single year, more than 17,000 parking tickets had been issued for meters that had been reported to the City of Los Angeles as malfunctioning or broken. The overwhelming majority of these meters were not intentionally broken by motorists but, rather, had internal malfunctions which the city had failed to fix. As cities transition from traditional meters to electronic ATM-like parking kiosks, which are more durable but subject to the intricacies of complex electronics and the whim of Internet connections, this pattern is expected to stay the same.

NBS Default Services, LLC, as the duly appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded 01/24/2007 as Document No.: 20070146307, of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of Los Angeles County, California, executed by: LETICIA CABALLERO, A MARRIED WOMAN AS HER SOLE AND SEPARATE PROPERTY, as Trustor, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable in full at time of sale by cash, a cashier's check drawn by a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state). All right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and state, and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. Sale Date and Time: 09/03/2013 at 11:00 AM Sale Location: By the fountain located at 400 Civic Center Plaza, Pomona, CA 91766 The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 14265 BORA DRIVE, LA MIRADA, CA 90638 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made in an "AS IS" condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $301,415.39 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, (714)730-2727 for information regarding the trustee`s sale or visit this Internet Web site, https://www.lpsasap.com/, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9985-4987. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder`s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by MARY IBARRA, AND JEFFREY J IBARRA, WIFE AND HUSBAND AS JOINT TENANTS, dated 06/13/2005 and recorded 6/16/2005, as Instrument No. 05 1413684, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, will sell on 08/30/2013 at 1:00PM, At the Pomona Valley Masonic Temple Building, located at 395 South Thomas Street, Pomona, California at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 13012 EDDERTON AVENUE, LA MIRADA, CA, 90638. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $467,794.13. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier's checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ''AS IS'' condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case 12-0079745. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.
