ABC Education Foundation Distributes Over 660 Backpacks to ABC Schools

Dirty Water: Gil Cedillo Jr. Spent $15K on Lavish Meals While at Central Basin Municipal Water District By Randy Economy and Brian Hews

he Palms, Steven’s Steakhouse, The Dal Rae, The Vintage, The Turf Terrace. They are some of the most elegant, exclusive, and expensive dining Gil Cedillo Jr. rooms in Los Angeles. A steak can cost as much as $65, and that doesn’t account for additional ‘toppers’ of bleu cheese crumbles, mushrooms and grilled onions at $6 dollars a spoonful. But for Gilbert Cedillo Jr., a former executive with the Central Basin Municipal Water District, dining and enjoying expensive steaks and ‘toppers’ at these restaurants was almost an everyday occurrence. Receipts obtained via a public records request by Hews Media Group-Community News document how Cedillo Jr. spent more than $15,000 over a 23-month period to wine and dine private consultants; consultants who landed hundreds of thousands of dollars in contracts, some overseen by Cedillo, Jr. himself. CBMWD is currently involved in two

INTERVIEW WITH LA COUNTY SHERIFF’S CANDIDATE PAUL TANAKA By Randy Economy Paul Tanaka is bound and determined in being elected the next Sheriff of Los Angeles County, and he has a message to his former boss, incumbent Lee Baca. Paul Tanaka “I am running to win, and I am running as hard as I can, and this campaign is going to be about talking openly and honestly with the voters of Los Angeles County” Tanaka told Hews Media Group-Community Newspaper in a sit down interview this past week in Cerritos. Next year’s already tense campaign to become the “top cop” of the County of Angels has attracted nearly a half dozen challengers to Baca, and the Primary election in 2014 is still ten months away.

Tanaka is a longtime political figure in the South Bay who has established solid local bases of supporters who he says are now “100 percent committed” behind his campaign to oust Baca. “I know why I am running, and I understand how challenging this campaign is going to become,” Tanaka said. Tanaka was born at Queen of Angels Hospital in Los Angeles and has been a lifelong resident of Gardena. Now 55 years old, the married father of two is a graduate of Gardena High School back in the Class of 1976. “I remember when I ran and won an election to become President of the Gardena High School Key Club. It was an exciting time in my early life,” Tanaka recalled. “My dad sat me down after I won and he told me, ‘The success of your year as Key Club President won’t be determined by the work you do, it will be determined by the people you have sur-

Cerritos-The ABC Education Foundation distributed 662 backpacks this year to 29 schools in the ABC Unified School District for students who are homeless or who are very low income. As part of the Foundation’s second annual backpack drive, school supplies and backpacks were purchased from the Foundation’s fundraising efforts. Schools were able to order the number of backpacks for very low income and homeless students at their school and all backpacks were delivered this week so that students will start school at ABCUSD next week with brand-new backpacks stocked with school supplies. ABC Education Foundation Vice President and Century 21 Astro realtor Mark Anthony Ruiz and Foundation Board Member Chris Apodaca from Broadview Mortgage organized the project. “This initiative really describes the

Artesia Officials Urge ‘Downtown Pedestrian Oriented Plan’ By Rico Dizon Is “Downtown Artesia” about to get another concept? Artesia Interim City Manager William Rawlings has told city council members to “seize the opportunity” to reconsider a proposed Pedestrian Oriented Median Concept Plan after state officials green lighted project. During the special meeting shortly before the start of the regular City Council meeting at on Aug. 12, Rawlings told city council members, “if we pass this opportunity, it may take a very long time to have another one.” “The current plan, while it is a welcome addition to our downtown area, is a limited cosmetic beautification plan.

Artesia City Council Awards Infrastructure Improvement Contract By Rico Dizon The Artesia City Council awarded Patriot Paving for the South Street Pedestrian, Bikeway and Transit Improvement Project. Patriot Paving bested seven other bidders for said Federal Project in Artesia. The City Traffic Engineer C. Hui Lai and Public Works Director Chuck Burkhardt made the recommendation to the City Council following the review of sealed bids received and opened on Aug.6, 2013. The review of the above bid proposals had determined that Patriot Paving bid of $768,750 represents the lowest respon-

sible bid received. However, the bidder did not submit in the bid package the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) commitment forms certifying that the 10% DBE goal required by the project was fulfilled. According to Caltrans’ DBE compliance requirements, the bidder has up to 4:00 pm of the fourth business day following the bid opening to submit the required documents to fulfill the compliance goal. Patriot Paving finally submitted the required DBE forms around 3:30 pm of the bid opening day. Review of these documents indicated that the DBE goal was fully met. Prior to the City Council approval, said recommendation was reviewed and approved by the Interim City Manager William Rawlings, Deputy City Manager/ Director of Finance Justine Menzel and City Attorney Kevin Ennis. The City Traffic Engineer said that the amount of 768, 750.00 will be 80%

Dear Editor: Before you began your coverage of the Mahatma Gandhi Statue controversy, I had though of him as an Indian Nationalist who overthrew oppressive British Colonial rule through the use of non-violent protests and died in 1948, inspiring Martin Luther King Jr. to take his commitment to non-violent protest and apply it to the Civil Rights Movement here in the United States which led to the end of Jim Crow and other overly racist laws in the United States. I had no clue that he was a proponent of racial segregation in South Africa & the caste system in India, while engaging in incestuous rape of female family members.

Re: Employee, Central Basin Water Cut Deal in Harassment Allegation Against Apodaca329 Views Dear Editor: I’m assuming this employee is the daughter of Apodaca’s live-in girlfriend Caroline Medrano? What do payoffs like these say about the leadership of today’s elected officials? This Apodaca clown is no better than Bob Filner from San Diego. These old pigs just don’t understand that they were gross back in their days and are even grosser today! Dear Editor: This was the third sexual harassment complaint settled by the District. The third! And that doesn’t even take into consideration all the others he’s hit on here that didn’t speak up who still work here till this day (at least four). Apodaca actually thinks every female hired at the Dis-

trict applied here just to MEET HIM and enjoy the opportunity for his massive belly to run against their backs as he stands way too close hovering over them. He’s sick, especially when he tells the females here that he’s no longer sexually attracted to his wife/girlfriend.

Dear Editor: “$4,300 for the amount the CBMWD would have paid to CalPERS for one year” Wow, that pension contribution seems really low, less than 10% of her pay. Is the Central Basin Water District employee pensions grossly underfunded to match their retirement benefits?

La Palma Avenue Improvement Approved

La Palma Sets Up Cooling Centers

The Cerritos City Council has approved the City’s participation with the City of La Palma in a shared jurisdiction street improvement project on La Palma Avenue. The City of La Palma initiated a street improvement project on La Palma Avenue within the La Palma city limits. The City of La Palma requested the City of Cerritos’ participation in the project by including the Cerritos portion of the roadway in the improvements. The Cerritos portion of the project includes the northerly portion of the segment of La Palma Avenue located between the Coyote Creek bridge and Denni Street. The project includes grinding and asphalt overlay, construction of wheelchair accessible ramps and updating the curb and gutter. The City of La Palma is the lead agency for the street improvement and awarded a contract to All American Asphalt of Corona. The Cerritos City Council authorized an expenditure of $60,500 for the Cerritos portion of the project. The street improvement is expected to be completed by mid-September.

In response to increased temperatures that are likely to occur over the next few months, the City of La Palma is prepared to activate its Cooling Centers in accordance with its Emergency Operations Plan for Extreme Heat Emergencies. Local cooling centers could be opened if the temperature in La Palma exceeds or is predicted to exceed 95 degrees over a 3-day period. During excessive heat, people with health conditions, including the elderly and children, are encouraged to take advantage of cooling centers in order to minimize the risk of a medical emergency. The general public is also encouraged to take extra precautions if they work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activates to early morning or evening. Learn the signs and

symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Always stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. Southern California Edison (SCE) is also urging the public to conserve power during excessive and prolonged hot weather. High demand for around-the-clock energy use — especially from air conditioners — could lead to failed equipment and power outages. If widespread local power outage was to occur the City of La Palma would open local cooling centers. The City of La Palma stands prepared to open local cooling centers if temperatures remain excessive or if a widespread local power outage does occur. The opening of local cooling centers by the City of La Palma will be communicated to the public through the City’s Notify Me email system and by utilizing Alert OC. Residents are encouraged to register with Alert OC at www.alertOC. org. Cooling center information will also be posted on the City’s Facebook page and website: www.cityoflapalma.org.

EVERYDAY MIRACLES

jazz vocalists. It was that early exposure that sparked his love for the genre. Murphy said that Jazz allows him to express his feelings and emotions in a way that no other form of music can provide. Numerous jazz vocalists, including Marvin Gaye, Patti Labelle and Stevie Wonder, have influenced his own style of singing. While Murphy still enjoys and appreciates artists like Snoop Dogg, Drake and Lil Wayne; he isn’t fond of the indulgent culture and objectification of women that much of their music promotes. Murphy is also opposed to their prolific use of profanity and complained that he would not be able to listen to it if there were elders or children in the room. Instead, Murphy has found a way to bridge the generations together. Using his love and knowledge of music he is able to put a different twist on the otherwise crass music, by editing it and mixing it to the tune of a past era: jazz. Murphy has also become somewhat of a philanthropist now that he has ‘made it’. The money earned at his concerts is almost entirely donated back into the community and to charities, providing relief for impoverished families and those that are less fortunate. Part of the reason behind Murphy’s generosity is because he can relate to those that are in need. Before auditioning for America’s Got Talent he was barely making ends meet, working as a car washer or cutting hair for a living. But it wasn’t until everything was stolen from his car, which was also his home at the time, did he have the epiphany to audition. Murphy said he had considered auditioning for American Idol and various singing shows at other points in his life, but was always held back by the fear that he would be made fun of. But this time was different. “When I hit rock bottom it was like, what do I have to lose?” Murphy said. Murphy also said he received many signs along the way confirming that he was making the right decision. After he won, Murphy said it completely changed his life and his family’s life, but they still remember their values and their roots. “It’s cool to be known all over the world for something good,” he said. But he also added that when you leave this earth, you can’t take it with you. “It’s about loving each other and then you expire.” Recently, he has been working on a Christmas CD that will be available in October. He also plans on producing another album with some original songs on it, as well as more of the traditional jazz songs.

HMG-CN reviewed more than 40 pages from the 31-year old Cedillo’ s credit card receipts that showed he spent a great deal of time and taxpayer money in swanky LA eateries. Cedillo wined and dined Tom Calderon, who at the time, was a Board Member on a San Diego firm called Water2Save. From 2009-2012, Water2Save was paid $222,000 for ‘Landscape Services,’ including over $91,000 after Cedillo was hired. Calderon was also banking $11,000 per month as a ‘consultant’ to CBMWD The two went to the Turf Terrace for lunch and spent $53. Cedillo Jr. enjoyed a Seagram’s Gin at 2:00 in the afternoon as they dined. Calderon is a former State Assemblyman who is also laying the ground-work for a possible run for a California State Senate seat that is currently held by his brother Senator Ronald Calderon, a Democrat from Montebello. Earlier this year, FBI officials, armed with search warrants and guns raided Senator Calderon’s Sacramento office and carted off boxes of potential evidence in their investigation. Along with his expense account, Cedillo Jr. was paid $112,000 annually even though he did not possess a college degree. He also received $22,000 in taxpayer funds to finish his degree at the private Azusa Pacifica University. And when he drove to the airport or to seminars in Las Vegas or San Diego, he was paid 51 cents per mile, sometimes collecting over $400 for mileage. It was also revealed exclusively by HMG-CN that Cedillo Jr. oversaw the award of millions of dollars of contracts even though he had no experience or knowledge of the contracts contents. Several of those contracts were given to companies where Calderon served as a top executive. One of the very first trips Cedillo took after getting the job at CBMWD was in December 2011. Documents show that he, former CBMWD Attorney Doug Wance, and Tom Calderon attended the “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour� at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Just hours prior to the performance Wance hosted a dinner for Calderon, Cedillo, and other executives from CBMWD at the exclusive “Strip Steak: A Michael Mina Restaurant� that is also housed at Mandalay Bay. A closer examination of the dining receipts revealed a concerted effort to wine and dine people who had submitted bids for contracts overseen by Cedillo Jr. and CBMWD. Claudia Cruz the District Director for Senator Ronald Calderon and Cedillo Jr. enjoyed a ‘traditional prime rib, with garlic mushrooms’ for $66 at Rosemead’s Charley Brown’s in January 2012. Cedillo and Cruz also visited the same restaurant in March of 2012 where Cedillo Jr. turned in a receipt for himself claiming a $55 reimbursement for one ‘Charley Prime Rib’ lunch special. Bell Gardens Mayor Pro-Tem Sergio Infanzon and Cedillo Jr. dined frequently together. The two enjoyed a massive $193 lunch at The Los Angeles Palm on South Flower Street in late January 2012. They dined on Caesar Salad, Lettuce Wedges, and Prime New York Steaks that cost $46 and $50, respectively.

The two longtime friends and political allies also dined at Steven’s Steak House in Commerce in March, 2012, where Cedillo Jr. had a $33 Rib Eye Steak. Former CBMWD GM Art Aguilar and Cedillo, Jr. also dined frequently, going to Steven’s Steak House in Commerce. They dined on salads, prime rib, New York Steaks, mushrooms, and onions that totaled $125 and $88. Cedillo also had a $145 dinner with Toni DeAztlan to “discuss district mattersâ€? at the Vintage CafĂŠ on Bright Avenue in Uptown Whittier in April, 2012. Toni DeAztlan was the daughter of Tizoc DeAztlan; Tizoc was awarded a $40,000 contract under extremely questionable circumstances, the award process overseen by Cedillo Jr. Toni DeAztlan signed her own agreement, again overseen by Cedillo Jr., for “Election Selection Servicesâ€? in November 2011 for $25,000. Tom Calderon and Cedillo frequented the Dal Rae in Pico Rivera and spent $243 at two different lunches. Both dined on prime steaks and left $39 in tips to the wait staff.

TANAKA

Continued from page 1 rounding you,� he said. Tanaka has not forgotten that conversation with his father some nearly 40 years ago and said that he has applied that mantra as a local elected official and now as a candidate for Sheriff. After Gardena High School, Tanaka, who is a Baptist in faith, enrolled at the Loyola Marymount University in the Culver City/West Los Angeles area that is owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Church. “I had the best education and had the best of both worlds at Loyola Marymount,� Tanaka said. He said he still keeps in contact with many of this past school mates from both high school and college and have relied on their loyal support for years. Tanaka and Baca both began their professional careers in the Artesia/Cerritos community. Baca was a former teacher at Faye Ross Junior High School in Artesia and Tanaka’s first job was around a mile away at a Certified Public Accounting Firm on the corner of Marquardt Avenue and Artesia Boulevard. Since then Baca and Tanaka have been on similar career paths climbing the political ladder at the LA County Sheriff’s Department side by side. Now the two are fierce rivals. “The only time I have seen Lee since I left the department was a couple of months ago a trial in Downtown LA where we were both testifying. We did exchange a hand shake, but that was it,� Tanaka said. Tanaka has built an impressive team of early supporters and donors in his race against Baca. Tanaka announced his campaign plans under a blistering Southern California sun last month with around two dozen law enforcement officials and supporters at his side on a helicopter pad near Dodger Stadium. The budding politician gathered a “team� of around a dozen close friends, none of whom had ever been involved in any political campaign and started to map out a plan that would eventually get him elected to the Gardena City Council. “None of us had a clue how to run a campaign, we were running against the city hall insiders and no one ever expected us to come close in the campaign, let alone get the top vote,� he said. Tanaka said he purchased several copies of a book written by then Congressio-

nal Speaker Tip O’Neill about “how to run for political office.� The book called “All Politics is Local: And Other Rules of the Game� became the “Tanaka Campaign Bible.� “It was like reading a how to get elected to local office guide, so we followed the script of the book, and sure enough, we won that first election and sent a loud message to the old guard that Gardena needed to move forward with new blood,� he said. Since then, Tanaka has never lost an election, and has become a local hero to many in Gardena for helping save the municipality from a “certain financial meltdown� in the late 1990’s. “We were $5.2 million in the red and we were literally within hours of declaring bankruptcy but we dug in our heels,� Tanaka said. He recalled summoning Gardena’s city manager, and top executives from banks in New York in one room and told those assembled “no one is leaving this room until we get a deal to fix this crisis.� Within hours, Tanaka and Gardena city officials had avoided bankruptcy and said “we got a new lease on life.� Gardena went from having “junk bond ratings to a financial score on of AA-Stable.� His political mentor is former Gardena Mayor and Councilmember Mas Fuki, whom Tanaka called a “legend in the Japanese-American community.� Fuki, who was also a longtime aide to former Los Angeles County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn called Tanaka on the phone “out of the blue one day� and told him “Gardena is in trouble, and we need your help.� “It was like getting a call from God, so to speak. When Mas calls and tells you to help, you do exactly as he says,� Tanaka said. Gardena, like most cities in the South Los Angeles/South Bay area had suffered a long period of what Tanaka called “urban decay compounded with out of control crime and gangs.� He said he is a “huge advocate and vocal supporter� of the Gardena Police Department that has around 90 sworn officers. Tanaka, who worked at the time as a Lieutenant with the much larger Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, says that he has “never pushed to have the Sheriff’s to come into Gardena as its law enforcement agency.� “The Gardena Police Department is amazing and does an incredible job in protecting our entire community,� he said. Tanaka also pointed to statistics from different government agencies that “prove Gardena is one of the safest cities in the entire South Bay.� “This campaign is about creating a new environment within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department,� Tanaka

SEPTEMBER 6, 2013

said. During his first campaign address Tanaka said, “Our county Sheriff’s Department is in desperate need of new leadership.� said Tanaka. “As one of the most complex police agencies in the country, our Sheriff’s department’s responsibilities to the community require a leader that is engaged, trustworthy and dedicated to the future of the department. It is crucial, now more than ever, that our department’s leaders are unified in their goals to maintain safety within our jails, decrease crime in our communities and preserve a fiscally transparent department budget,� he said. “When I am elected Sheriff, I will ensure our employees have leadership that is clear, consistent and sensible.�

BACK PACKS

Continued from page 1 Education Foundation’s vision statement -- that every ABC student, every school succeeds,� states Dr. Mary Sieu, Superintendent. “The Foundation is committed to ensuring that every student has the basic tools for academic success.� In 2012, 200 ABCUSD students received backpacks filled with supplies as part of the ABC Education Foundation’s first annual backpack drive. This year, Mark Anthony Ruiz set a much higher goal for the Foundation with over 600 backpacks. Hands Across Hawaiian Gardens, a nonprofit organization, made a significant donation towards the backpack drive with Valerie Mason, president of the organization explaining why the backpack initiative is so important to that nonprofit agency: “Community is all we have. It’s who we are and it’s what we stand for. Though small in demographics, we are a family and we should look out for one another,� she stated. “One small gesture can make a world of difference, and with Hands Across Hawaiian Gardens, this gesture and the effort they put behind it, can change the pace and outcome of a child’s school year.� First Choice Bank in Cerritos also teamed up with the Foundation and supplied 100 of the supply-filled backpacks that were donated to Carver, Kennedy, Bragg and Elliott Elementary Schools. The Bank contacted the Foundation when they heard about the backpack drive. Additional cash donations from Century 21 Astro, Los Cerritos Center, LBS Financial Credit Union, Ellen Kowaki, Sid Reitsma, Mark Anthony Ruiz, Heather Summers and others enabled the Foundation to reach its goal of supporting over 600 students this year.

PLAN

Continued from page 1 opportunity to consider the expansion of the proposed project to include a new, exciting, pedestrian-focused downtown that will attract more visitors and shoppers to support businesses in the area,” Rawlings said during the meeting. The proposed plan aims to enhance the accessibility of pedestrian space combined with additional commercial space for retail kiosks. To make this possible, the plan includes the reduction of four-lane traffic to just two-lane and the installation of two mid-block pedestrian signals that will eliminate jaywalking and improve pedestrian traffic safety. The proposal will also give way to angle-type parking instead of the current tandem parking that will result to more available parking spaces in downtown Artesia. “The mixture of increased pedestrian access, enhanced landscaping and additional commercial spaces provides a balanced, harmonious and aesthetically pleasing environment for the downtown and will ultimately increase business revenues,” said Rawlings. In 2007, Artesia City Traffic Engineer C. Hui Lai introduced a similar pedestrianoriented median concept plan. That plan proposed to install a 40-foot wide island median on Pioneer Blvd. between 183rd and 186th Streets and a 30-foot island median between 187th and 186th Streets. While it proposed to reduce by half the four-lane traffic, existing curbside parking on both sides of Pioneer Blvd, however, would remain unaffected. At that time, a number of concerns were expressed among them were that new kiosks will compete with existing

www.HewsMediaGroup.com

businesses; reduction of motorist lanes will cause a gridlock and response time for fire trucks passing the area will take much longer. Under Rawlings new proposal, the modified plan seeks to resolve those concerns by presenting solutions that include giving first opportunity to existing businesses to bid for new retail kiosks; motorists traffic passing Pioneer Blvd. will be diverted to main adjacent freeway accessible streets; and downtown traffic signals are now equipped with emergency preemption devices that will allow traffic signals in the area to turn green simultaneously for passing fire trucks on duty. With the new pedestrian-oriented median plan, it is expected that the possible leasing of retail kiosks could generate annual approximate revenue of $100,000 for the City not to mention revenues from additional sales tax. “The plan is also expected to transform the downtown into a vibrant outdoor entertainment area for shoppers, diners and music lovers and the uniqueness of these pedestrian oriented public spaces will draw in new customers and visitors to the business corridor on Pioneer Boulevard,” said Rawlings. .. Another innovative amenity proposed together with the above plan is the installation of downtown identification monument consisting of 12-ft. tall column with a 48-inch world globe on top that will continuously rotate highlighting the downtown areas international flair. The estimated cost of replacing the pending beautification project with the proposed expanded plan would be roughly $300,000 which is still within the $400,000 contingency budget programmed for the Griffith Company construction contract according to the proposal. With all its exciting promise and benefits, the downtown revitalization proposal

is still not free from issues and concerns prompting Mayor Sally Flowers to suggest, “We need a special meeting between now and next regular meeting to discuss the alternative plan further.” Mayor Pro Tem Tony Lima asked the Interim City Manager “if further study of the alternative plan will stop the scheduled implementation to proceed with the original improvement plan?” Rawlings replied, “yes, because there will be changes in the plan’s footprints.” On the other hand, Councilman John Lyon said, “we need to expedite approval while the money is ready.” Councilman Victor Manalo, whose participation in the meeting was made possible via remote telephone conference while he was in San Francisco, took special interest in having the Verizon property/building wall painted with a mural so as to compliment the ongoing beautification. Although Rawlings noted that the said

SEPTEMBER 6, 2013

property is not part of the proposed plan, City Attorney Kevin Ennis hinted, “Since Verizon is leasing the property from the City the former may just approach us in view of obvious changes taking place and that is a good time to discuss with the company Councilman Manalo’s proposal.” The City Council finally agreed to continue discussion of the proposed Downtown Pedestrian-Oriented Concept Plan before the next regular meeting. In the meantime, the City Attorney will work with Staff to address the outstanding legal issues of the plan among them are the City’s ability to use public right-of-way for commercial kiosks; the safety of design elements to protect pedestrians in the center medians; and Fire Dept.’s requirements for minimum fire lane width for traffic lanes in connection with reducing traffic lanes to one in each direction.

Penny gets Norwalk going in emotional season opener

TO ADVERTISE CALL 800-901-7211

WEEK ZERO FOOTBALL

By Loren Kopff Norwalk’s season-opening victory over visiting Long Beach Cabrillo last Friday night wasn’t as explosive as its 5826 triumph over the Jaguars last season. In fact, the Lancers had to rally in the fourth quarter, then stave off a potential gamewinning touchdown by their opponent in the final minute. But if it’s crunch time and if it’s Norwalk football, then senior wingback Rashaad Penny is involved. Penny capped off an 11-play, 66-yard, 5:41 drive with a one-yard run with 5:17 left in the game to give the Lancers a 20-15 win at Excelsior Stadium. Penny, who injured his ankle in the third quarter, ended with 148 yards on 15 carries and scored twice. Penny was also playing the game with a heavy heart. “This is a fight for my team,” Penny said. “This is an emotional win and I couldn’t do it without my O-line blocking. But then we stepped it up on defense. I knew we were going to get a big play; I had it on my mind. This is for my Aunt Martha. She passed two weeks ago and this is one I’m going to keep for the record books. I wish her the best.” In addition to Penny’s minor injury, Norwalk head coach Jesse Ceniceros had to get through some other obstacles throughout the contest, including the muggy weather conditions and the 60 penalty yards in the first half. “There were a lot of different factors,” Ceniceros said. “The heat was a major factor. We had kids cramping up and it seems we have a couple of injuries in key spots. [Cabrillo] is a hell of a football team. I’m not going to take anything away from them.” Norwalk struck first on its opening possession of the game but while Penny rushed for 38 yards on five carries, it was senior wingback Matthew Ortega’s fiveyard run that gave the hosts a 7-0 lead. The defense was holding its own despite

PHOTO BY ARMANDO J. VARGAS, SR giving up a pair of 13-yard receptions and a 12-yard catch from Rahshead Johnson in the opening quarter. Cabrillo punted twice, had a drive stall on downs and fumbled once in the first half. With just under a minute remaining in the half, Penny, in midseason form, busted loose for a 62-yard touchdown run. Then he thought he had given the Lancers a 20-0 lead after he returned the second half kickoff 95 yards. But a holding penalty nullified that and Norwalk eventually fumbled on the seventh play of the drive. Cabrillo took advantage and got on the scoreboard with 4:55 left in the third quarter on a five-yard run from Kaelon Price. On Norwalk’s next possession, Penny didn’t have a carry among the five plays the team ran but was able to punt despite his injury. The Jaguars were able to drive a short 41 yards to take the lead 62 seconds into the fourth quarter when Price threw a 15-yard score to Darren Gardenhire, who also ran in the two-point conversion. After that, Penny returned to action and seemed like new. He gained 12 yards on the first two plays of the drive, then 13 more on back to back rushes moments later before ending the drive on a three-yard run and his second touchdown. “He talked me into putting him in at the end,” Ceniceros said. “I probably

shouldn’t have let him do that but we’re just going to hang in there. We have a tough game next week too with Diamond Bar. We just have to stay healthy.” However, the game wasn’t decided until junior cornerback Ryan McDowell recovered a fumble at the Norwalk 12yard line with 41.8 seconds left in the game. The fumble came after Cabrillo had driven to the three-yard line and was facing a third and one situation. Ortega picked up 85 yards on 14 carries while McDowell and senior fullback Xavier Fuery combined for 60 yards on nine carries. Senior cornerback Nick Fernandez led Norwalk with seven tackles while senior linebacker Jose Abrina added six tackles. Norwalk, which moved from fourth to third in the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Southeast Division top 10 poll, will visit Diamond Bar tonight. “I’m really proud of our kids because I told the kids today about homemade football,” Ceniceros said. “We’re working with kids who are from Norwalk; they were born and raised here. We don’t get a lot of transfers coming in and we are making football players out of them.”

JOHN GLENN UNABLE TO HANG WITH MAGNOLIA’S MR. COOPER

By Loren Kopff

ANAHEIM-The young John Glenn football team, with 16 sophomores, 13 juniors and nine seniors on its 2013 roster took the field last Thursday night against Magnolia hoping to contain Arizona State University signee Jamal Scott. But it was the Sentinels’ Larry Cooper who stole the

spotlight at Handel Stadium. Cooper rushed for 121 yards on eight carries with a pair of touchdowns and caught two other touchdown passes totaling 61 yards as the visiting Eagles were crushed 41-20 in their season opener. Scott, who rushed for 55 yards and scored on a one-yard push five minutes into the game, left with an injury before halftime

and didn’t return. That’s when Cooper took over and turned a close game into the rout, aided by three first half Glenn fumbles. “Those young kids were the ones who made those drastic mistakes,” said John Glenn head coach Ray Niemann. “The young kids have to step up and sometimes when the kids are down, they’re down.

NEWS AND NOTES FROM PRESS ROW opener as senior wide receiver TyCerritos, Gahr volleyball season tus Simmons returned a kickoff 86 yards a touchdown, caught a 29-yard score teams off to slow starts forfrom junior quarterback Jimmy Rodriguez and added another touchdown on the By Loren Kopff

While the Cerritos girls volleyball team began the 2013 season in the annual Molten Classic, one of the top tournaments every season, HMG-CN Sports Gahr opted out of Editor Loren Kopff the event it has hosted for well over 25 years. Still, the Gladiators got the season going this past Tuesday afternoon with a nonleague match against La Serna. The visiting Lancers swept Gahr 2516, 25-16, 26-24 despite a match-high 22 kills from senior middle blocker Olouma Okaro. Gahr visited St. Anthony on Sept. 5 and will host St. Matthias on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Cerritos lost the first two matches it played in the Molten Classic on Labor Day but rebounded for a 15-25, 25-22, 25-22, 25-20 victory over Carson this past Wednesday. Senior outside hitter Mariah Gonzalez led the Lady Dons with 14 kills while senior right side hitter Jody Suski added 10 kills. Cerritos will wrap up action in the Molten Classic with two more matches on Saturday, then visit Warren on Thursday. The marquee girls volleyball match of the upcoming week takes place on Tuesday when Valley Christian hosts Downey, which advanced to the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Division II-AA quarterfinals last season. They Lady Crusaders knocked off the Vikings in four sets last season on the road. Downey begins this season as the eighth ranked team in the division while V.C. is barely on the outside of the Division II-A top 10. FOOTBALL The featured game for tonight may not look sexy on paper but it’s a historic one for the city of Cerritos as Valley Christian and Cerritos meet for the first time ever at Hanford Rants Stadium on the Gahr campus. V.C. is coming off a 28-24 loss to Duarte in its season opener despite a pair of touchdowns from junior running back Jonathan Nicholson and one more from senior running back Darryl Richardson. This will be the first game of the season for the Dons and the first at varsity status since Sept. 14 of last season. Both teams combined for three victories in 13 games played on the field last season. Elsewhere tonight, Artesia hosts Los Angeles Jordan while Gahr visits Narbonne.

That’s the battle now-keep the consistency.” The first of those three fumbles came on a muffed punt after Magnolia’s opening possession, which led to Scott’s touchdown. A fumbled snap on the first play following the touchdown gave the hosts the ball again, but the Sentinels went three and out. Glenn was showing some promise when senior running back Angel Rochin picked up 21 yards on a fake punt but the Eagles eventually punted to begin the second quarter. The Eagles thought they were continuing the momentum when Magnolia muffed that punt but two fumbles in five plays in less than two minutes in between a Magnolia turnover led to Cooper’s first score, a nine-yard run, with 7:22 left in the first half that put the Sentinels in front 15-0. Glenn finally put its offense in gear and went 78 yards on 10 plays in a little over four minutes to hit the end zone. Rochin cashed in from two yards out with 3:14 left in the half. Rochin carried the Eagles in the first half with 65 yards on 10 carries including 23 yards on a pair of fake punts. But he would be sidelined with a hip injury early in the third quarter and did not see action the rest of the game. Rochin also had six tackles. “That took a dimension off because they couldn’t stop our option,” Niemann said of Rochin’s absence. Magnolia scored twice in the final 1:32 of the first half to own a 28-6 halftime advantage and put the game away 102 seconds into the second half when Cooper raced 78 yards down the right sideline. After junior Martin Sanchez recovered another muffed punt, the Eagles went to junior quarterback Erick Galindo and he added the team’s second touchdown, a six yard run midway through the third quarter. But early in the fourth quarter, Cooper caught a 21-yard touchdown pass from Adeel Akbar to make it a 41-12 contest. Senior halfback Steven Morones capped the game’s scoring with a 20-yard run, plus the two-point conversion, with 17 ticks left in the game. “I think the fatigue factor after our offense began to stall a little bit…our defense got tired,” Niemann said. “Our [defensive backs] are young and they couldn’t stop the [Cooper].” Junior running back Dominic Enriquez led Glenn with 90 yards on 14 carries and had nine and a half tackles while Morones added 52 yards on five touches and five tackles and Galindo chipped in with 51 yards on 17 carries. Akbar completed 15 of 22 passes for 173 yards and the Sentinels rushed for 206 yards. Glenn will face Pioneer tonight at La Mirada’s Goodman Stadium. The Eagles, who have now lost four consecutive season openers, fell to the Titans 35-28 last season in the second game.

I’m sure it will put them on LIBRARY HOLDS MEMBER a path to competitive leadership.”

Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District’s Academic Performance Index increased for the sixth straight year, reaching a new high of 781, according to data released Thursday by the California Department of Education. The overall District API, which measures the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of criteria, gained six points over last year with 16 schools demonstrating growth, and half of those making double-digit gains over the last few years. “I’m very pleased that our trend data reflects steady improvement,” said Superintendent Dr. Ruth Pérez. “We are very proud of our students.” Schools that had the highest gains since the previous year include: Johnston and Chavez elementary schools by 27 points Glenn High School and Sanchez Elementary by 20 points each Norwalk High School and Dulles Elementary by 16 points each Los Alisos Middle School by 14 points La Pluma Elementary by 11 points; and Foster Road Elementary by 10 points Fourteen of the District’s 28 schools have now surpassed the state’s target of 800, including Gardenhill Elementary at 915 and Escalona Elementary scoring 907. “Our students continue to grow by leaps and bounds and I couldn’t be more proud of them,” said NLMUSD Board President Ed Hengler. “The District is on an upward trend in almost every academic arena thanks to the hard work and drive of all our staff, faculty and parents who are devoted to their children’s education.” In addition to the continued API growth, more students within the District are proficient or advanced in EnglishLanguage arts and math, according to the Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) targets for No Child Left Behind. The trend shows a 12.8-percentagepoint gain in math District-wide since 2009, as well as an 8-percentage-point increase in English-Language arts.

NOTICE OF TRUSTEE'S SALE Trustee Sale No. : 20130015001255 Title Order No.: 130113579 FHA/VA/PMI No.: ATTENTION RECORDER: THE FOLLOWING REFERENCE TO AN ATTACHED SUMMARY APPLIES ONLY TO COPIES PROVIDED TO THE TRUSTOR, NOT TO THIS RECORDED ORIGINAL NOTICE. NOTE: THERE IS A SUMMARY OF THE INFORMATION IN THIS DOCUMENT ATTACHED YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST, DATED 02/05/2007. 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. NDEx West, L.L.C., as duly appointed Trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust Recorded on 02/13/2007 as Instrument No. 20070309009 of official records in the office of the County Recorder of LOS ANGELES County, State of CALIFORNIA. EXECUTED BY: CALVIN RIGGS, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH, CASHIER'S CHECK/CASH EQUIVALENT or other form of payment authorized by California Civil Code 2924h(b), (payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States). DATE OF SALE: 09/26/2013 TIME OF SALE: 11:00 AM PLACE OF SALE: BY THE FOUNTAIN LOCATED AT 400 CIVIC CENTER PLAZA, POMONA, CA 91766. STREET ADDRESS and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 15402 CROSSDALE AVE, NORWALK, CALIFORNIA 90650 APN#: 8078-027-012 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, 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, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $417,295.39. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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 www.lpsasap.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case 20130015001255. 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. 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 (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www. dlppllc.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1376945-31.
