UNSOLVED MURDER CERRITOS FAMILY SEARCHING FOR KILLER

By Kristin Grafft

By Justin Cooley

Marc Gomez, a 22-year-old Norwalk resident was killed in a traffic collision involving another Norwalk resident and a 54-yearold Cerritos resident on the morning of Friday, Marc Gomez September 6. The accident occurred at 3:45 a.m. just before dawn in the intersection of Marquardt Ave. and Artesia Blvd. Gomez was in the front passenger seat of a small Nissan heading south on Marquardt Ave. when, officials say, it appears the driver ran a red light and hit a Toyota

It was five years ago when Cerritos was shocked with the news of a tragic and unfortunate murder. On August 20th of 2008, Jonathan Muse, a beloved son, grandson, and community member was killed in a shooting on Pioneer Boulevard under the 91 Freeway. Jonathan was riding his bike on his way to a friend’s house when he was shot and killed by unknown assailant. Jonathan would have been 23 years old this December, but instead law enforcement officials are still stuck at a dead end in search of the people who were responsible for his murder that took place at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 20, 2008.

Commerce Officials Withhold Public Records Residents forced to retain attorney to compel the City to produce records. By Brian Hews A group of active Commerce residents led by Mike Alvarado, have retained attorney Kelly Aviles to compel the city to produce public records City Manager they say that city officials are “illegally withholdJorge Rifa ing.” In a letter to City Manager Jorge Rifa, Aviles says, "the city (of Commerce) has improperly denied requests for information related to legal expenses and has provided just a summary of records responsive to a request for information regarding city owned vehicles instead of providing actual records." Aviles goes on to cite various codes determining the production of public records under the California Public Records

Act section 6253. "The city has not responded to a number of requests, or has delayed providing responsive records well outside the time which would be allowed under the code," Aviles stated. The first set of documents requested by Alvarado focused on payments made on behalf of taxpayers to Commerce City Attorney Eddie Olivo. The letter stated, “on July 23, Angie Verdin, Senior Office Assistant, notified my client that the city was declining to produce records relating to the city's legal expenses including information about the payment of fees to outside and in-house attorneys as well as City Attorney Eddie Olivo’s billing invoices.” Aviles cites two Superior Court cases with one case concluding, "The identity of the client, the amount of the fee, identification of payment by case file name, and the general purpose of the work performed

Imagine Artesia residents riding their bicycles to go to Los Cerritos Mall and visit adjoining restaurants in the vicinity in the near future. Likewise, residents of Northern Artesia can pedal their way toward the Artesia Downtown. The Artesia City Council, during its regular meeting last Sept. 9, approved the City’s application for Supervisor Don Knabe’s 2013 Competitive Trails Grant Program. This application for Excess Funding for the Fourth Supervisorial District Grant is meant for the Pedestrian and Bike Trail Project in Artesia that starts from the Historical Museum on 187th St. and extending to 183rd St. and Gridley Avenue close to Los Cerritos Mall. It is referred to as the Historical District Recreation Area (HDRA). Before the voting, conflict-of-interest issues emanating from the residences of three council members which are located within 500 ft. from the encompassed area need to be settled. To pick one from the three affected members in order to establish a quorum, a drawing as suggested by City Attorney Kevin Ennis was held for said three council members. The results ended up with Mayor Sally Flowers participating while Mayor Pro Tem Tony Lima and Councilman Victor Manalo abstaining. After the City Council gave its gosignal, Melissa Gobas, Parks and Recreation Superintendent, will now submit the competitive trail grant application to Mr. Knabe’s office which will decide if the new trail design will come close to reality. The new design infuses the MTA bike

and pedestrian trails with the old HDRA’s open space recreational plan. Per the proposal prepared by Gobas and Interim City Manager William Rawlings, “priority will be given to public trails projects in the cities that provide linkages to regional facilities and/or existing or planned regional trails.” It will be recalled if the Metropolitan Transit Authority has an existing regional plan for the addition of a bike and pedestrian trails along the MTA right of way that runs from Paramount to Santa Ana. The City of Artesia, on the other hand, has an existing plan to develop the MTA right of way between the Historical Museum and Old Fire Station No. 30 to create open recreation space. “The city is optimistic that the new extended trail design will meet the priority requirements for the grant,” said Gobas. To strengthen the city’s bid for the grant, it was learned that the City approached MTA with the proposed project. MTA has confirmed thru a letter affirming their support of the project and permission to develop the land pending final approval. Likewise, the City has secured the nod of Los Angeles Conservation Corps to be a partner in the HDRA project to develop the trails and recreation areas. In the application for the trail grant, Gobas mentioned the allowed maximum amount of $300,000 to develop the project. Phase I is expected to cost $1,015,000, with the remaining balance of $715,000 to be derived from the use of unspent nonhousing Artesia Redevelopment Agency bond funds which were originally allocated when the MTA property around the

Local Teen Achieves Eagle Scout

Edited by Brian Hews Kunal Patel, 16, received a proclamation of recognition from the Cerritos City Council on September 12, 2013 for achieving the Boy Scouts of America's most distinguished Eagle Scout honor and highest Kunal Patel. rank, the Eagle rank. Kunal became an Eagle Scout when he was awarded the Eagle rank at a Boy Scouts' Court of Honor ceremony held by his Troop 979 in Norwalk on August 31. Kunal had earned the coveted Eagle rank on December 14, 2012, in a year when the Eagle rank celebrated its 100 years. During the Eagle Scout ceremony, Steve Anderson, Quartermaster with Troop 979, said that the rank of Eagle Scout is achieved by only four percent of all members of the Boy Scouts of America. Anderson was especially excited to see Kunal get his rank. Kunal was from Anderson's Pack 72 and Anderson was his Cub Master when Kunal was in the Cub Scouts. As a Cub Scout, Kunal had earned its highest honor, the Arrow of Light. Also present at the ceremony to celebrate Kunal's achievements were Mayor Bruce W. Barrows of the City of Cerritos and Mayor Steve Hwangbo of the City of La Palma. Mayor Barrows conferred Kunal with a recognition proclamation and

Mayor Hwangbo with a commendation. At the August 20, 2013 City of Norwalk Council meeting, Kunal was awarded a commendation from Mayor Luigi Vernola for his endeavors. His Troop 979 was present to support his accomplishments. A resident of the City of Cerritos, Kunal attends Cerritos High School. At school, Kunal is a member of the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) and plans to pursue a degree in Computer Science upon graduation in 2014. Kunal immigrated to the US from India in 1999 at two-and-a-half with his parents, Atul and Rita Patel, and sister, Manali Patel. Rita Patel said, "We wanted activities other than just education in his life." She found it in a flyer the Cub Scouts troop had distributed at Kunal's school. She said, "Right away I knew this was the perfect activity for Kunal. It would teach him survival skills, and help become a good citizen and do well for his community." Kunal's father was raised in Kenya and with an older brother in Boy Scouts there, he was familiar with their concept and became excited to get his son started. His passion and dedication won him 22 merit badges including for First Aid, Emergency Preparedness, Family Life, Personal Fitness and Management Computers, Citizenship in Community, Nation, and World, Astronomy, Disability Awareness, Computer, Robotic and Communication. Scouting's most valuable skill for Kunal is time management and he used it to succeed in his Eagle Scout service project. He planned, organized and coordinated the construction and installation of two raised wheelchair accessible planter beds at the Metropolitan State Hospital in Norwalk, and the clearance of overgrown weeds from the hospital's Oasis Garden. The weeds were replaced with green house plants making it easier for patients to walk around. The project took 225 hours to plan and complete and used the assistance of 25 volunteers. Kunal said that receiving the recognition "at first was weird. I didn't care. I didn't understand what it meant. But now when my friends' respect me, it makes me feel proud." He acknowledges the contribution of his fellow scouts, his Troop 979, and above all his parents. Rita Patel added, "Boy Scouting is something cool. It is great to see a nice group of people, people from all over the world, getting together to make our children's life better, doing something good for our country and making our country's future better."

Interview: NLMUSD Superintendent Dr. Ruth Perez

By Randy Economy Dr. Ruth Perez, who serves as the Superintendent of Schools for the NorwalkLa Mirada Unified School District, went on a mission this past week that took her to all 28 campuses. Perez visited NLM Superintendent the class rooms Dr. Ruth Perez. to personally welcome each and every teacher and student as well as administrators, clerical staff, cafeteria workers, janitors and security staff back to school. “I have the greatest job in public education,” Perez said during an interview with Hews Media Group-Community Newspaper this past week. “Just having the honor to stop and see every class room and to welcome everyone back for a new school year is a huge moment for me,” Perez said. Perez has been at the helm of the district for the past four years, and this past week she was given a contract extension by the elected members of the board of education whom she called “great leaders, who are each dedicated to making Norwalk-La Mirada a great school district.” Perez grew up in the Bronx in New York City, and was the oldest daughter of six children. “My parents didn’t speak English, and I really struggled myself in school. I wasn’t the smartest kid in my class, far from it,” she said. “So I can totally relate to our kids here in Norwalk and La Mirada who may be having the same challenges I did growing up.” Perez started her career working at a radio affiliate of CBS News, but quickly realized “it wasn’t my calling.” She recalled that her mom and dad “wanted be to become a teacher, and to work in the Bronx and Queens. “Parents are still the most important person in any child’s life, and a teacher sometimes takes the role of a parent figure while they attend school,” Perez said. As Superintendent at Norwalk-La

Mirada Unified School District, Perez said that students today have great challenges, pressures and burdens. “Our campuses are beacons of light, and we make sure that every school location has all of the tools needed in order to provide an outstanding education,” she continued. With lawmakers in Sacramento and Washington, DC facing funding mandates and other economic challenges, Perez said that the school board has “done a terrific job keeping our fiscal house in order here.” She pointed out that during the past four years, school board members have had to cut more than $39,000,000 in budget costs. “We have a great school board, and all of them care deeply about our children, and they have had to make tough decisions when it comes to our budget year in and year out,” she said. Asked to point to one of the proudest accomplishments as Superintendent at the district, Perez said “when I came here, I quickly noticed that Los Alisos Middle School did not have a science lab. I made a directive to get funding for the program with the school board, and today it is one of the most successful programs of its kind in all of Southern California.” Perez also weighed in on the hot button issue if teacher salaries should be tied directly to student test scores and other mandated benchmarks. “I have thought long and hard about this because it is a topic that is at the national forefront in education. I have come to the conclusion that I do not believe that including achievement scores within a teacher’s evaluation will improve student achievement,” she said. “Dedicated teachers will give a 100 percent of themselves, every day in the classroom regardless of how their performance is measured. The variables that still make a difference are how we support them, the professional development we provide them, and the expectations they have of their students,” Perez said. “The relationship these teachers have with their students is also a critical factor. Teachers that are not dedicated need to be encourage moving on and doing something else where they can be productive,” she continued. “And, the fact that their performance evaluations would include a component on student test scores will not make them better teachers.”

LM Deputy Catches Thieves Red Handed

By Brian Hews

One adult and two juveniles were arrested on the morning of Sept. 8 for grand theft on the 14700 block of Northam St. While patrolling the City's industrial area, a La Mirada Sheriff's Deputy was alerted by the sound of an impact wrench coming from one of the nearby businesses. When the Deputy went to investigate, an adult male and two juveniles were seen at the business working on the wheels of a semi-truck trailer parked at a closed loading dock. In recent months, the area has been the target of thefts involving the removal of

5

brand new tires replaced by older, wornout tires to disguise the theft. It's not until much later that the owners of the trailers realize their tires were stolen, greatly reducing the chances that the thieves are actually caught. Upon investigation, Deputies found four brand new tires already loaded up in the suspects' vehicle, with older mismatched tires mounted on the trailer. During questioning, one of the suspects eventually admitted to working as a team to steal the tires. All three suspects were booked for grand theft, and the two minors were taken to juvenile hall.

LM Sheriff’s Dept. Seeks Public’s Help in Catching Armed Robbers At 1:21 a.m. on September 5, 2013, Deputies responded to the In-N-Out restaurant on the 14300 block of Firestone Blvd. in La Mirada regarding an Armed Robbery that just occurred. The investigation revealed that two suspects, described as male Blacks wearing ski masks, knocked on the locked front doors after the business was closed. The suspects were let in by a customer who was an acquaintance of the employees. After gaining access into the restaurant, the suspects threatened customers and employees with handguns and demanded money from the cash register. After discovering the cash registers ha been emptied for the night, the suspects stole personal items from the remaining customers and employees. Approximately four employees and four customers were inside the restaurant. No one was injured. Video footage was

recorded at the location. Stolen property was later recovered a short distance away from the scene. If you have any information about this crime, contact Detective Phillip Fernandez at (562)863-8711.

HMG-CN Exclusive Interview Criminal Prosecutor John Morris Enters Campaign for LA County Assessor Deputy District Attorney vows to end “the criminal culture deep inside the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office.” By Randy Economy and Brian Hews Deputy District Attorney John Morris has embarked on a mission to become the next Assessor of Los Angeles County, and the one person who has motivated him to run in the 2014 John Morris Deputy campaign more District Attorney is than anyone is running for LA County current Assessor Assessor. John Noguez. Noguez is facing more than 30 felony counts of forgery, accepting of bribes and other corruption allegations in what Morris’s former boss District Attorney Steve Cooley hailed as “the biggest political corruption case in

the last 40 years in LA County.” “The actions of John Noguez have motivated me to run for Assessor,” Morris told Hews Media Group-Community Newspaper in a sit down interview held at a Commerce steak house. Morris has served as a criminal prosecutor in the LA County District Attorney’s Office for the past 23 years, having tried over 200 criminal trials, including over 100 jury trials and 33 homicide trials. “Everything starts at the top at the Assessor’s office. John Noguez has created the culture of corruption and I will clean it up beginning on my first day in office,” Morris said. “It makes me sick to my stomach to see what Noguez did to this office,” Morris said. “I am not going to have a political consultant in my administration if I am elected Assessor, period.” Morris served as the Head Deputy of the Healthcare Fraud Division inside the DA’s office, and turned it into the statewide leader for prosecuting health care related fraud crimes. Morris also pointed to his lengthy professional resume as a “real positive” that

will appeal to voters and taxpayers who want “honesty restored” to the Assessor’s operation. He advocates that if a future Assessor is “charged with a felony in the future, that he or she must forfeit his salary and benefits immediately.” Noguez, who has been on a paid leave of absence for almost one year now, is still collecting more than $205,000 in salary and pension benefits. “John Noguez is still the Assessor of Los Angeles County, yet he hasn’t been to work since the current crisis began to unfold, and I will make sure than never happens again,” Morris said. Asked if he has ever met Noguez in the past, Morris said, “no, but he tried to ‘LIKE’ my Campaign page on Facebook. I denied his request.” Morris told HMG-CN that his campaign will be focused on four key areas with “reforming the Assessor’s Office and ending corruption,” at the top of the list. “We need to guarantee fair assessments and no favoritism should ever be given to a campaign contributor or personal friend of the Assessor in the future,” Morris stressed. He also said that he will “protect Proposition 13, and will provide knowledgeable staff to answer questions when the public calls.” Morris is married with four children, three daughters and one son. He was born in Burbank at St. Joseph’s Medical Center, raised in Sepulveda and Northridge in the San Fernando Valley. Morris is a graduate of Crespi Carmelite High School in Encino and earned his Juris Doctor in May 1988 from Loyola Law School. Morris has also had articles he pinned on “Fraud Criminal Statues” in the LA County District Attorney’s Fraud Legal Report as well as a piece titled “Battling the Underground Economy.” “My family is the most important thing in my life,” Morris said, and has been a volunteer basketball and soccer coach for 20 years for children between the ages of 5 and 13 years old.

Historical District was previously part of the City’s Capital Improvement Plan. It is explained in the proposal that prior to committing the bond funds for this project, the City and Successor Agency will need to enter into a bond funding agreement. The agreement will need the approval of the Oversight Board and upheld by the Department of Finance. In addition the Successor Agency will need to add the project to the upcoming Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule (ROPS) for January through July 2014. The City and the Successor Agency will determine if the additional funds will be available prior to the announcement of the grant awards in January 2014. The proposal clarifies that the use of non-housing bonds funds is not a grant match, but rather a supplement to complete a larger project, and the funds are not required for an award. If the bond funds are not available and the grant is awarded, the project may move forward on a smaller scale pending approval from the grant funder. The balance of set aside bond funds, the proposal continues, may be allocated to other projects, or can be set aside as matching funds for future grants to complete Phase II of the HDRA project.

Detective Tim Britt of the LA County Sheriffs station in Cerritos said, “Both (Gomez) and the driver were severely injured and (Gomez) succumbed to his injuries‌ But the impact of this accident was so great I’m really surprised that the driver is even still alive.â€? Gomez was taken by ambulance to the University of California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, where he later died, at around 10 a.m. that same day. Detective Britt said they cannot release the names of the drivers because the investigation is still ongoing, and because, “their injuries were also very severe and there’s a good chance that they may still not make it as well.â€? Officials are still awaiting toxicology reports on the driver of the Nissan. However, Detective Britt said that nothing “outwardly indicates he was under any influences, other than the way he was driving – running a red light.â€? Officials are still unsure where the passengers of the Nissan were coming from at that hour, but Detective Britt indicated there is a possibility they were involved in another, but minor, accident in Norwalk that occurred not long before the collision.

Cerritos - A national human rights group will be holding a protest at Cerritos City Hall this Saturday to demand that city officials remove a statue of Gandhi that has recently been the subject of vandalism within the city limits. Members of the media were alerted late Wednesday afternoon about the protest via email. “Believing the City of Cerritos has turned a deaf ear to a public concern, a group working since July to organize local residents opposed to the Gandhi statue now plans to demonstrate for its removal outside City Hall this coming Saturday,” said Arvin Valmuci, an organizer of the event in a statement. Organization for Minorities of India is coordinating the event that will begin at 11am on September 14 outside the Cerritos City Hall located at the corner of 183rd Street and Bloomfield Avenue. OFMI is also coordinating local residents and community leaders to speak out against the statue at Thursday’s Cerritos City Council meeting. “The city will not stop hearing from us until it begins listening to us,” said Valmuci. “Our protests will end the moment the city withdraws its approval from this monstrous statue.” Organizers tell Hews Media GroupCommunity Newspaper that they have been “mistreated” by current Cerritos Mayor Bruce Barrows during the past several weeks over the Ghandi statue removal. “Support for removing the statue, located outside the Chugh Law Firm on

Carmenita Road, has spread throughout the area over the past two months as opponents feel increasingly alarmed by what they perceive as the city’s failure to properly address their concerns,” Valmuci said. “Mayor Bruce Barrows provided the only formal response to the issue in an August 5 letter to OFMI, in which he confirmed: “[The Chugh Firm] was required to provide a statue or monetary contribution as a part of the Art In Public Places Program.... The City Council received and approved the statue.” HMG-CN was sent a copy of the response from Barrows by the organization. Bhajan Singh, director of OFMI, The Gandhi statue in front of th noted: “If the A national human rights grou city initiated the Cerritos City Hall this Saturda requirement and remove the statue. subsequently approved the statue, then they bear responsibility. If the city hadn't compelled Chugh Law Firm to make a donation to its Art in Public Places Program, none of this would have ever happened. Now Cerritos citizens

are faced with the unfortunate statue of Gandhi, who has nothing to do with the USA and the truth of whose life is actually repulsive to most Americans.” OFMI representatives plan to attend and present a report about Gandhi’s “dark history to all five councilmembers,” on Thursday, September 12, the press statement stressed. “We will make three main points,” said Valmuci. “First, why is the city council not responding to our documented points about Gandhi’s background? Second, why did the city approve installation of a statue of a religious icon? Third, why is the city violating its own ‘intent and purpose’ for the Art in Public Places he Chugh Law Firm in Cerritos. Program?” up will be holding a protest at Valmuci ay to demand that city officials cited the opening statement of City of Cerritos’ Municipal Code Section 22 stating: “The purpose of the city of Cerritos art in public places program is to promote the general welfare by encouraging pride in the community, increasing property val-

ues, enhancing the quality of life through artistic opportunities, uniting the community through shared cultural experiences.” His response? “The Gandhi statue impedes the general welfare by promoting a shameful icon, endangers our quality of life by implicitly supporting the intolerance to which he devoted his life, and divides the community.” Representing African-American, Caucasian, and South Asian communities, five speakers are scheduled for Saturday’s protest including: Jada Bernard, Pieter Singh, and M. R. Paul, Dr. S. Muni, and Bhajan Singh. Speakers tell HMG-CN that they “are expected to invoke the same reasons for opposing the Gandhi statue given from the beginning, namely: Gandhi cultivated a friendship with Hitler, sexually abused and exploited his grandnieces, promoted racial segregation of blacks in South Africa, was nominated and rejected for a Nobel Peace Prize five times, tried bribing a Southern Californian woman to keep silent about her husband's murder by his followers, and was instrumental in perpetuating the practice of caste in South Asian society.” The Organization for Minorities of India was founded “to advance individual liberties of Christians, Buddhists, Dalits, Muslims, Sikhs, and other minorities of South Asian origin, particularly those marginalized by the Hindu caste system.” The group also “encourages secularism, progressive human rights, liberation of oppressed peoples, and universal human dignity.” They have a website at www.OFMI. org.

spoil Cerritos’ return to varsity football By Loren Kopff

Varsity football is back for Cerritos High School and the Dons put up a valiant effort last Friday night in their home opener against Valley Christian. But the Crusaders scored 42 unanswered points after falling behind in the first few minutes of the contest and won their first game of the season, 42-28. It was the first game for the Dons at Hanford Rants Stadium since Nov. 4, 2011 against Norwalk. Cerritos had three varsity home games last season at alternate sites before dropping its varsity team after four games. But following last Friday night’s contest, Cerritos head coach Darin Owens stated it was outstanding to be home and he felt the team took a slight turn in the football program. A few weeks ago, he also said he just wanted his team to be competitive this season. “Tonight was a huge step for that,” Owens said. “It was also a giant step for the football program. We have an incredible long way to go. But at least tonight we were able to compete, and that’s huge.” Cerritos scored its first points since that Norwalk game just 80 seconds into the game when senior running back LaMarr Crowder scored from 27 yards and added a two-point conversion. Following a V.C. punt, sophomore running back Jacob Tucay rumbled 56 yards for a touchdown

WEEK ONE FOOTBALL

and after another Crowder two-point conversion, the hosts had something to cheer about with less than three minutes into the game. “It was a very good surprise,” Owens said. “I figured if we did our job and executed properly…you just never know what’s going to happen. I’ll take that anytime we can get that. But it was a pleasant surprise.” However, after rushing for 191 yards in the first quarter, the Dons were held to 28 in the second quarter and V.C.’s offense took over. Midway through the first quarter, senior running back Adam Range went up the middle for a 15-yard score. Then with 3:46 remaining in the first half, the Crusaders (1-1) scored the first of three touchdowns in a span of 3:11. Senior Darryl Richardson and junior Jonathan Nicholson each had three-yard runs for touchdowns and junior quarterback Jack Struiksma connected with junior wide receiver Aaron Kirchner for an eight-yard score. “I think we were able to get the ball out on the edge to a couple of receivers and loosen things up a little bit,” said V.C. first-year head coach Woodie Grayson. “But there was no great scheme change. I thought Jonathan Nicholson just decided that he was going to run hard and run fast. His play really ignited the offense.” “We became our own worst enemy and that’s part of the youth with our kids right now,” Owens said. “I think we just stubbed our toe a little bit. But I felt we came back in the second half and was very competitive and played hard.” Richardson began the second half with a 73-yard touchdown run down the left

sideline and with just under eight minutes left in the third quarter, he added a 20-yard touchdown run to complete V.C.’s scoring. The last five touchdowns were scored in a span of 7:55. Nicholson led everyone with 228 yards on 14 carries while Range added 98 yards on 14 rushes. The Crusaders would finish with 423 yards on the ground. Cerritos would make the final score more respectable when Crowder found the end zone from 20 yards out late in the third quarter, and scored on a 67-yard run 73 seconds into the fourth quarter. Crowder led the Dons with 196 yards on 24 carries. Boyd picked up 77 yards on 10 carries and junior quarterback Ki’Jon Washington, who did not attempt a pass in the double wing offense, chipped in with 76 yards on 11 carries. Cerritos would amass 435 yards on the ground and have 15 first downs. “He just kept going and pounding and did the best he could do,” Owens said of Crowder. “Our line did an exceptional job. We have a lot of kids who have never played football right now. This was their first game.” “I knew they would be better offensively than they were the year before,” Grayson said. “But they were much better. They’re bigger and they have good speed. I knew they would score; I just didn’t think they would be as explosive.” The 28 points scored by Cerritos are the most since putting up 35 against Artesia on Oct. 22, 2010. Cerritos will face another city rival, Gahr, tonight, hoping to end an eight-game skid to the Gladiators. V.C. has tonight off before hosting Mayfair on Sept. 20.

2013 GIRLS VOLLEYBALL PREVIEW Cerritos, Gahr, Norwalk, Valley Christian have hopes of respective league titles By Loren Kopff ARTESIA PIONEERS 1-17 overall last season, 1-11 in the Suburban League, tied for sixth place 14-75 overall last five seasons Head coach: Micah Burpo (sixth season, 14-75) Last time made the playoffs: 2010

Key losses: Jessica Corona, Faith Devera, Kyla Kelly, Leaisa Lafo (JR), Elizabeth Pulido, Jeshanah Siangio There’s no downplaying the current state of affairs for the Artesia program from head coach Micah Burpo. Simply put, the Pioneers will be starting over as they have 37 freshmen, 20 sophomores, six juniors and one senior in the entire program. “It’s going to be probably the same [as last season],” Burpo said. “We have four returning junior varsity players who are on varsity and seven new [players] who have never played volleyball before.” The leader of the pack who will generate at least 95 percent of the offense is senior middle blocker Daisy Briseno, whom Burpo said will have to take a lot of first and third balls. Burpo added that Briseno is the team and everyone else needs to follow her. The only other returning player is junior outside hitter Martina Kim.

Getting the ball to Briseno relies on the hands of sophomore setter Britney Alvarado. The squad rounds out with sophomore middle blockers Brianna Garcia, who will play behind Briseno and Keina Harris, sophomore outside hitter Julianne Ramos, sophomore opposite hitter Jessica Suarez, sophomore libero Janette Lee and freshman outside hitter Clarissa Gonzalez. “This team has great athletic ability; great potential, but no skill set yet,” Burpo said. “Unfortunately it’s not going to be a ‘this year’ team. It’s a team two years from now. Not that we’re going to anticipate the same result as last year, but that’s probably going to be the [same] as last year.” CERRITOS LADY DONS 10-13 overall last season, 7-5 in the Suburban League, fourth place, lost to Victor Valley in the Division III-AA first round playoffs [See NEXT PAGE]

2013 GIRLS VOLLEYBALL PREVIEW San Gabriel Valley League, second place, lost to La Reina in the Division II-AA first round playoffs 68-65 overall last five seasons Head coach: Iris Murray (second season, 12-10) Last time missed the playoffs: 2008 Key losses: Aaliyah Heckard, Dymond Johnson, Tisha Lenon, Joelle Miller, Jewelyn Sawyer, Bejani Turley The transition from assistant to head coach was somewhat smooth for Iris Murray, who replaced the longtime and legendary mentor Sonny Okamoto last season. Even though the Gladiators return three everyday players, plus one more that was called up late in the season, Murray feels her team can seriously challenge Downey for the top spot in the San Gabriel Valley League. “I think I was the best person for this because I had been coaching junior varsity [at Gahr] for a couple of years and he was my coach many years ago,” Murray said. “It was an easy move because the girls were used to me already and I kept a lot of the same expectations. I think I did the best I could last season.” The team will be centered around senior outside hitter Olouma Okaro, who was a middle blocker last season, senior defensive specialist Jennifer Diggs, who might be the libero, junior setter Frankie Dilorio, who also could play as a libero and sophomore Naomi Belgrave. Murray says those four bring good leadership with them and they’ve been playing together for a while. Of the seven varsity rookies, a pair of freshmen could make a quick impact this season-setter Lorilei Saleapaga and outside hitter/middle blocker Miranda Ta’amu. Both of them bring club experience to the Gahr program. Senior defensive specialist Alicia Barron, junior defensive specialist Sophia Archega, who was the junior varsity setter last season, junior middle blockers Joselyn Govea and Stephany Rodriguez and junior outside hitter Destiny Hayes are the other newcomers. “I’m always impressed with the freshmen players just because they are the bonus players,” Murray said. “Destiny improved herself in the offseason by playing club and she is finding her way to the starting lineup right now. “If we do our job, we should be on top,”

82-41 overall last five seasons Head coach: David Cuthbert (first season) Last time missed the playoffs: 2002 Key losses: Arnelle Duru, Bali Leffall Young For the first time since 2006, Cerritos will have a new head coach as David Cuthbert, who hails from the United Kingdom, replaces Khanh Vo, who had six successful seasons. Cuthbert, who moved to the United States six years ago, recently has been a volunteer assistant at St. Anthony High School and at Loyola Marymount University. This is his first head coaching job. “It has been a successful program and I’m really excited to work with student athletes,” Cuthbert said. “I have a good understanding of the type of players we have at Cerritos and I think we can be really successful. Yet, it’s my first head coaching gig, so it’s nice to branch out and apply some of the things that I want to into a program. We’re looking to build a whole program, not just to be successful on varsity this year.” Cuthbert inherits a program that had finished first or second in the Suburban League four straight seasons and five times in the last eight seasons before winding up in fourth place in 2012. Since 2005, Cerritos is 78-18 in league action. The Lady Dons return eight players led by senior libero Rachel Fitterer, who could also be a defensive specialist, senior outside hitter Mariah Gonzalez and senior right side hitter Jody Suski. Cerritos has a solid core of returning junior players in setter Lorinet Marquez, who missed all of last season due to a broken arm, middle blockers Kaitlyn Bales, who was the setter last season, and Brittany Freeman and outside hitter Madison Lee. Sophomore defensive specialist Nicole Medina also returns. New to the team will be senior outside hitter/defensive specialist Brittany Diaz, senior Abigail Ligon, junior middle blocker Crystal Amalu and junior setter Jessica Tahata. “My expectations are for us to get better and be a team,” Cuthbert said. “I really want us to focus on us. Winning and playoffs will take care of itself. If we do what we’re supposed to do in practice, then the rest will care of itself.” GAHR GLADIATORS 12-10 overall last season, 7-3 in the

Continued from page 11 the team worked on its weaknesses for this season. “I had quite a few young girls that I was glad that they were on the squad because they got the experience of playing at the varsity level,” Cruz said. “Playing [junior varsity], I really thought that would have hurt our program.

It’s going to be a battle again.” WHITNEY LADY WILDCATS 9-9 overall last season, 4-6 in the Academy League, fourth place, lost to San Gabriel in the Division III-A first round playoffs 28-54 overall last five seasons Head coach: Ole Nervik (seventh season, 32-66) Last time missed the playoffs: 2011 Key losses: Mylan Jefferson, Sharon Park, Joyce Shin Being situated in the Academy League, it has been tough for Whitney to crack the top three and earn an automatic spot to the playoffs. But on the strength of a better than .500 overall mark last season, the Lady Wildcats advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2001 and won more games since that same season when the team went 15-8. Now, with the addition of Downey Calvary Chapel to the league, head coach Ole Nervik believes his team can still finish in the upper echelon of the circuit. “Our league is so tough,” Nervik said. “Fourth place is almost like our goal every year because St. Margaret’s, Sage Hill and now Crean [Lutheran] are just the perennial one, two and three.” The team was dealt a big blow when senior outside hitter Rachel Nagel tore her meniscus during a travel basketball game during the summer. Nervik said Nagel gave him all of the flexibility in the world. But the team is still solid without Nagel because of its returning senior group of middle blocker Reyna Ta’amu, opposite hitter Ashley Duru, outside hitter Stephanie Yeh, and setters Alice Choi and Allison Tran, the latter who has to be the leader on the court now that Nagel is gone, according to Nervik. Junior outside hitter Lauren Dejoras and sophomore libero Lauren Oh, who was a backup setter last season, are the other returning players. Senior middle blockers Michelle Arechiga and Beah Totetino, senior outside hitter Tristan Eddy and junior defensive specialist Kaili Hamada are the only varsity rookies. “Programs build on themselves successfully,” Nervik said. “Are we at the point yet where we even think for a second that we can beat one of the better teams? We’re not there yet. That’s going to take more time.”

Public Auction Notice (R&TC 3702) Of Sale Of Tax-Defaulted Property Subject To The Power Of Sale (Sale No. 2013A) Whereas, on June 18, 2013, I, MARK J. SALADINO, Treasurer and Tax Collector, was directed by the Board of Supervisors of Los Angeles County, State of California, to sell at public auction certain tax-defaulted properties which are Subject to the Power of Sale. Public notice is hereby given that unless said properties are redeemed prior thereto, I will, on October 21 and 22, 2013, at the hour of 9:00 a.m. at the Fairplex Los Angeles County Fairgrounds, 1101 W. McKinley Avenue, Building 5, Pomona, California, offer for sale and sell said properties at public auction to the highest bidder for cash or cashier's check in lawful money of the United States for not less than the minimum bid. If no bids are received on a parcel, it will be re-offered at the end of the auction at a reduced minimum price. The minimum bid for each parcel is the total amount necessary to redeem, plus costs, as required by Section 3698.5 of the Revenue and Taxation Code. Prospective bidders should obtain detailed information of this sale from the County Treasurer and Tax Collector. Pre-registration and a $5,000 deposit in the form of cash, cashier's check or bank issued money order is required at the time of registration. No personal checks, two-party checks or business checks will be accepted for registration. Registration will be from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., beginning Monday, September 16, 2013, at the Treasurer and Tax Collector's Office located at 225 North Hill Street, Room 130, Los Angeles, California, and will end on Friday, October 4, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. If the property is sold, parties of interest, as defined by Section 4675 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, have a right to file a claim with the County for any proceeds from the sale, which are in excess of the liens and costs required to be paid from the proceeds. If excess proceeds result from the sale, notice will be given to parties of interest, pursuant to law. All information concerning redemption, provided the right to redeem has not previously been terminated, will upon request be furnished by MARK J. SALADINO, Treasurer and Tax Collector. NOTICE OF TRUSTEE'S SALE TS No. 120011795 Doc ID #0001557594792005N Title Order No. 12-0019511 Investor/Insurer No. 155759479 APN No. 7038-002-006 YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST, DATED 12/22/2006. 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 JESSE OSEGUERA, AND CARMEN OSEGUERA, HUSBAND AND WIFE AS JOINT TENANTS, dated 12/22/2006 and recorded 1/11/2007, as Instrument No. 20070057744, 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 10/07/2013 at 9:00AM, Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles-Norwalk, 13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk, CA 90650, Vineyard Ballroom 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: 10753 LA JARA STREET, CERRITOS, CA, 90703. 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 $715,310.29. 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 TS No. 12-0011795. 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. DATED: 06/03/2012 RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A. 1800 Tapo Canyon Rd., CA6-914-01-94 SIMI VALLEY, CA 93063 Phone: (800) 281 8219, Sale Information (626) 927-4399 By: - Trustee's Sale Officer RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A. is a debt collector attempting to collect a debt.

If redemption of the property is not made according to the law before 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 18, 2013, which is the last business day prior to the first day of auction, the right of redemption will cease. The Assessor's Identification Number (AIN) in this publication refers to the Assessor's Map Book, the Map Page, and the individual Parcel Number on the Map Page.
