COURT SLAMS DOWNEY PATRIOT PUBLISHER FOR FILING FALSE NORWALK DOCUMENTS Emails obtained through Freedom of Information Act indicate Norwalk Mayor Kelley, Norwalk Chamber Executive Director Vivian Hansen, Chamber President Joe Derthick, and others played a role in failed deal. STAFF REPORT editor@cerritosnews.net

D

owney Patriot publisher Jennifer DeKay-Givens, who, under questionable filing papers, went to court to obtain legal adjudication in the city of Norwalk in March of this year, had the adjudication struck down by the same judge in Los Angeles County Superior Court; the Motion to Vacate the adjudication was filed by Publisher Brian Hews and the Los Cerritos Community News. Using a law firm based out of Camarillo, Ms. DeKay-Givens filed her notice to publish Norwalk legal advertising under Government Code Section 6000 which reads: A “newspaper of general circulation… which has a bona fide subscription list of paying subscribers, and has been established, printed and published at regular intervals in…the city

where published… for at least one year…and publishing news about the city for three years” The filing notice (found at the end of this article) is signed by Ms. DeKay-Givens under penalty of perjury. The newspaper DeKay-Givens used to secure the adjudication was the Norwalk Business Call (NBC), a paper that was “owned” by the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber and DeKay Givens entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement where DeKay Given “bought” the paper from the Chamber. When asked about the NBC and the deal cut between DeKay Givens and the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director Vivian Hansen refused to comment; Derthick did not return phone calls. With the help of Norwalk Mayor Cheri Kelly, Norwalk Chamber of Com-

merce Executive Director Vivian Hansen and then President Joe Derthick, DeKay Givens bought the NBC name. In an another unusual move, the Chamber allowed DeKay Givens to use their office as the official publishing office of the NBC. DeKay Givens’ claim that it was printed in Norwalk, and that it was established and published for over one year was a complete fabrication, and the Chamber of Commerce was a partner in that fabrication, we have several emails that say this is a “new” newspaper, how can it be established for one year if they said it was a new newspaper?,” said Hews. “We have emails (end of this article) that clearly show the Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Kelley (along with others), pushed very hard to get DeKay-

Jennifer DeKay Givens: DP Publisher filed papers in court despite the fact that the Norwalk Business Call was new and not printed in Norwalk; both a violation of the filing.

Norwalk Chamber Executive Director, Vivian Hansen: organized several meetings with DeKay Givens and Norwalk councilmembers. “Sold” chamber newspaper to DeKay Givens. Allowed DeKay Givens to use Chamber offices. Ms. Hansen is a Paramount Unified School District School Board member.

Norwalk Mayor, Cheri Kelly: Meetings with DeKay Givens related to helping bring a new paper into Norwalk. Kelly is also the Norwalk Chamber Liaison between the Chamber and the city of Norwalk.

Cerritos High to Move Varsity Football Team to Junior Varsity Status Cerritos Council

Postpones Goodwill Hearing to Oct. 4

n a stunning move that shocked many parents, players and others in the community, the Cerritos High varsity football team will be playing the remainder of the 2012 season under junior varsity status. The move came down this past Tuesday afternoon as the coaching staff as well as the top Cerritos High administrators cited safety concerns for the players. A gathering of over 30 parents, players and community members were on hand this past Wednesday night in the classroom of Cerritos co-athletic director Robert Adams to ask questions and voice their displeasures on the sudden move. Also on hand was assistant principal Le Wentz. “This was not a quick thinking decision at all,” Adams said. “We made it with respect to the entire program. We certain-

The Council agree to delay action on the conditional use permit following a request from Mayor Pro-Tem Bruce Barrows that the item be pulled from the council’s Sept. 27 meeting.

NORWALK CITY, SCHOOL OFFICIALS GRAPPLE WITH STRING OF VIOLENCE, MURDERS By Randy Economy randy@cerritosnews.net

N

orwalk city and school officials have held a formal meeting to focus on a current crime wave that has resulted in the deaths of 13 residents, including many tied to street gang activity. On Tuesday, Carlos Ramos, Community Safety Director for the City of Norwalk told Mayor Cherie Kelley and other city council members that his staff as well as officials from the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District formally met to develop an “aggressive approach” that will

target graffiti, truancy and gang activity at both John Glenn and Norwalk High Schools. Ramos said that a “comprehensive assessment” of both campuses security policies must be an “ongoing top priority.” He said that there are “anti gang” assembly’s planned at both campuses. “We need to talk to the students with everyone together in one place to talk about the dangers of joining a gang, and what to do if a student is involved in a gang and wants a way out,” Ramos said. A number of campuses in Norwalk have been targeted for major thefts, includ-

ing Norwalk High School in the past year. Ramos said that new “motion sensor controlled” lighting on top of campus buildings are “a priority” as well as designating key campus employees to wear bright colored vests identifying them as “campus safety leaders.” Norwalk Councilman Mike Mendez said he was concerned that “not enough is being done with our middle schools and even our elementary campuses.” The veteran councilman also said that “all stakeholders” including schools in the Little Lake City School District that represents schools north of Imperial Highway need to

be “participants in these plans.” Ramos pointed out that he “was convinced” that the recent violence, that has included drive by shootings and stabbings was not “school campus related.” Councilman Marcel Rodarte urged that Ramos “pay attention” and to “make it a priority” that elementary and middle schools are part of the outreach plan. Rodarte also said he wants to target parents of minors involved in gang activity in Norwalk. “We need to go after the parents; it is there responsibility as well. This has to start in the homes,” Rodarte stressed.

ABC Board Urges Passage of Proposition 30 and 38 By Jerry Bernstein editor@cerritosnews.net

T

he ABC Board of Education, expressing apprehension over possible budget cuts by the state, voted to support Proposition 30 and Proposition 38, saying one of the two needs to be approved by the voters or otherwise ABC will face a revenue cut of $8.8 million resulting in a possible 15 day reduction in the current school year. Board Member Maynard Law said that would mean the 2012-13 school year would end in mid-May. Law, who is a member of the School Board Association, said the Association is urging voters to cast their ballots for both or one of the two propositions. He said if both fail, ABC parents need to be aware of what the District faces such as cut backs to after-school programs including bands, athletics, and possible closure of one or more schools,

Chief Financial Officer Toan Nguyen said under Proposition 30 income taxes will increase on annual earnings of more than $250,000 for seven years. The state’s sales tax will increase by 1/4 cent for four years. If the voters approve it, 89 percent of the temporary tax revenue will be allocated to K-12 schools and 11percent to community colleges. The Legislative analyst estimates additional tax revenue of about $6 billion annually from 2012-13 through 2016-17. Smaller amounts of additional revenue would be available in through 2018-19 to fund programs in the state budget. Spending reductions of about $6 billion in 201213 mainly to education programs would not take effect. Under Proposition 38, increases in personal income tax rates would raise on annual earning over $7,316 using a sliding scale from .4 percent for lowest initial earners to 2.2 percent for individuals earn-

ing more than $2.5 million for 12 years. During the first four years Proposition 38 would allocate 60 percent of revenue to K-12 schools, 30 percent to repaying state debt and 10 percent to early childhood programs. Thereafter, it would allocate 85 percent of revenues to K-12 schools, and 15 percent to early childhood programs. It would also prohibit the state from directing use of the funds. Whitney Multi-Media Center In other business Kenine Le, President of the Whitney Foundation, took the school board to task for voting to return the donation of $500,000 to Grace Hu that he said was the largest private donation made for the construction of the multi-media building currently under construction on the Whitney campus. At its Sept 4 meeting the Board voted 5-1 in-closed sessions to return the money. No reason was given. Le said Mrs. Hu came forth and pledged $750,000. There was no posturing on her part. The money was needed and she made it a reality. “Her gift rallied us and made us believe that what seemed insurmountable

was achievable.” He said he understands the gift was not accepted because the District and Mrs. Hu could not come to mutually agreeable terms and a number of parents, including himself, fear there will not be enough money to complete the building. “To further complicate the issue, there has been no small contention as to the naming of the building. We feel that all parties are capable of coming to some form of compromise for the benefit of our entire school district.” Le said the rejection of Mrs. Hu’s donation has caused anxiety in the community and many in the community are now withholding their financial support for the Multi-Media Center. “One way or another the facility will be built, but at what cost to other district programs if we don’t see funds from outside sources.” He concluded by saying, “We cannot forget the generosity of Grace Hu. Her donation, while no longer a reality, remains a shining, symbolic example of what the community is capable of when it comes together for our children,”

Cerritos College President Question Americans Lead in Education By Jerry Bernstein editor@cerritosnews.net

S

peaking to members of the Cerritos Chamber of Commerce Sept. 13 at its monthly luncheon held at the Sheraton Cerritos Hotel, Cerritos College President Dr. Linda Lacy stated by the year 2025 an estimated one million people will not have earned a degree in this country. She said it’s shocking to realize that this country is going in the wrong direction. She asked why is it that a degree in Education is important in this country? She answered her question by stating, “A degree leads to a better life. You earn more if you have an education as opposed to being unemployed. I look at the statistics between having a high school diploma and a college degree and there is a vast difference in income.” Dr. Lacy said 12 years ago the United States was leading in the number of degree holders in the world. Today. China is going up, India is going up while the United States is losing its position as the world’s leader in education. “Why are our students not achieving a degree?” she asked. “They are not prepared for college when they get there.” She said, “K-12 schools are working desperately and we appreciate our partnerships that we have with them. We are moving in the right direction.” She noted at Community Colleges many students are not full time students. “The President of Chicago University said, “It is no longer the three “R’s.

Attending the Sept. 14 Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon at the Sheraton Cerritos Hotel were (l-r) Cerritos College Board Members Jean McHatton and Ted Edmonston, College President and guest speaker Dr. Linda Lacy, Board President Bob Arthur, Board Members Bob Hughlett and Shin Liu and Vice President Academic Affairs Dr. Joanna Schilling. Today it is remedial reading, remedial writing and remedial residency “ Dr. Lacy said, “if we look at the placement exams only 13.6 percent of our students are college level and they take our exams in English. In mathematics 7.1 are college level. In reading, 43 percent can read college textbooks. The others do not. Add to that only 27 percent of our students are full time. Those students who take 12 semester hours are more likely to succeed.”

Credit Union Donates School Supplies to Tracy High School

She asked why aren’t there more full time students? The reason is 54 percent have full time jobs. Our students are working and raising families. They are doing a lot of different things,” she asserted.,adding “It’s quite amazing where we are if you look at the load they are carrying.” She said she talks about it because if you look at the decline since 2008 to now you will see we have lost 19,592 students Today have to turn students away because

of the decline in revenue. Since 2008 to today we are talking $16-17 million in budget cuts in three years. She said we are coping through grants and partnerships. our bond projects and our dedicated faculty, staff and administration at our college. She said last year Cerritos received $2.5 million in grants Cerritos College’s Foundation is t doing the best they can. Last year they gave $200,000 in scholarships and the G.O. Bond approved by our residents has produced tremendous results. Not only did we add what we said we were gong to build but also we have constructed two additional buildings. Dr. Lacy described Cerritos as a big campus and invited those in the audience to visit the campus. She said half the campus is complete. Measure G, a new bond issue that will be on the November ballot, will complete it. She pointed out that the College is not increasing square footage, but replacing very old buildings that will have the latest technology for the students. She said not only do they put the students into the workplace but also Cerritos is also proud of its transfer program to four-year intuitions. She said the college is proud of its student success efforts, our veterans program, our outstanding students and our award wi8nning faculty and staff. Changing direction she said the greatest costs to our students is the textbook. She said Cerritos College has won national recognition for its Kaleidoscope program where the students can get all the information they need in their studies on-line without a textbook.

She’s just “more colorful.” What I have learned about both of them is that neither will discuss national politics. At least until members of Congress learn to talk to each other across the aisle. As VAL LYNDA has often said, “Principle is fine, but sometime it is necessary to compromise.” So I wasn’t surprised when my Friend from Fruitcake, Florida brought up the subject of Proposition 30, the Governor’s tax measure. “Do you think it’s going to be approved?” he asked. “I don’t know,” I answered. “I think the problem is the public no longer believes what comes down the pike from Sacramento.” My Friend from Fruitcake Florida gave me a long look. “This reminds me of an situation that hovered over Fruitcake a few years ago. We had a city council that had some great ideas. They told Fruitcake citizens they needed a special tax on the library and police department so they could purchase up-to-date computers for the library and police station. The citizens thought that was a good idea and approved the tax increase. A year past and nothing happened.” “What happened to the tax money?” I asked. “That’s what we asked,” he said. ”You

know when a tax increase is put forward by our elected officials, the people expect the money to be used for that purpose.” I waited for my Friend from Fruitcake to continue. Finally the council bought some new equipment for the police department and a new squad car. They added some computers to the library’s inventory but failed to do what they promised the voters they would do.” “And?” “When the council was asked what happened to the balance of the money they said it was used to balance the city’s budget. The next election they were voted out of office.” I looked at my Friend from Fruitcake, Florida. Are you saying our legislature is corrupt,” I asked. “No, I’d say the description should be they are derelict in their responsibilities. All I know is he voters’ keep approving bond issues for specific projects and nothing is done. The Governor is urging passage of Proposition 30, which he says will provide additional money for California schools and help balance the budget. The problem is when the Governor first asked the people to approve Proposition 30 the state deficit was approximately $ 8 billion. Now it’s approaching $16 billon. How’s he going to make up the difference?” I didn’t have answer except to say the legislature will have to make additional cuts.” “Precisely,” he said. I waited a few minutes before I replied. “According to proponents of Proposition 30 if it is approved, the state tax revenues will increase about $6 billion annually

starting in 2012-13. Smaller amounts of additional revenue would be made forthcoming in succeeding years and would be available to fund programs. If Proposition 30 is approved by the voters reductions of about $6 billion, mainly to education programs, would not take effect.” “Win or lose,” he responded. “Education will still feel the brunt of continued deficit spending by the legislature.” He paused for a moment. “What about Proposition 38?” What about it?” I asked. Isn’t that supposed to provide money for the state’s schools?” “My understanding,” I replied, “is money raised would go into a trust fund strictly for the state’s schools. It would be separate from the state budget and the money could not be used except to fund the schools.” “How would it be financed?” he asked. From what I understand,” I explained, ”The tax rate, which will be in effect for 12 years, would be on a sliding scale, with those earning $7,316 taxed at four percent and those earning more that $2.5 million at 2.2 percent.” I paused a moment and then continued. ”For the first four years 60 percent of the revenue collected would go to K-12 schools and 15 percent for early childhood programs. In addition, the state would be prohibited from attaching the funds.” My Friend from Fruitcake, Florida didn’t say a word. Finally he got up from his chair and as he was leaving said, ”Well, I hope the voters study both measures.” With that he got up from his chair and left.

how they grew, The harvest that came was the worst that we ever knew. By men who came to America to learn to fly a plane, Only to take off, no landing needed, that was their game. No words can express the horror of each scene, Hoping and praying it wasn’t reality, only a dream. But it was real as four planes were brought down, Each bringing devastation, and destroying what was around. We still know the pain that this terrible day brought, No answers found, though for 11 years we sought. We still remember, and pray for peace and happiness for all. We must always remember on God we should call. To ask for His help to come heal our hearts and land. As on His word our hope is built, and on it we stand. What are your memories of Sept. 11, 2001, today? A special place in our hearts, forever this

day will stay. A memorial for the great loss we all still share, Stands now forever to show how Americans care. Dody Bedingfield- 9-11-12

CRIME SUMMARIES CERRITOS

Weekly Crime Summary

September 10-16, 2012 There were 22 Part I felony cases reported to the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station last week up from the 15 the previous week. Residential burglaries and vehicle thefts increased, commercial burglaries remained the same while robberies and vehicle burglaries declined. There were 324 calls for service handled by patrol personnel last week, up from 238 the week before. The new 2012 weekly average in calls for service stands at 270. There were no robberies reported last week. Five residential burglaries were logged compared to three for the past two weeks. Last week there were three entries due to open/unlocked doors or windows, one front door was pried open and one window was shattered. Jewelry, a laptop computer, a washer and a dryer were taken. The 2012 weekly average in residential burglaries is now 4.6. We remind residents to make an “exit check” each time they leave the home. Make sure that all doors and windows are secured, even if the weather is warm. Don’t present an opportunity for a burglar to enter your home with ease. When you return, you can “air out” the residence in a short period of time. This is a much safer practice than finding valuable property stolen when you get back. Two commercial burglaries were reported, the same as the week before. A fitness center locker and a closed business were targeted. Keys and a lock were taken from the fitness center and computers and cameras were removed from the business after the front door was pried open. The 2012 weekly average in “other structure”/commercial burglaries is 2.0. Vehicle burglaries were down for the second consecutive week after one was reported. There were four the week before. A high-volume commercial parking lot was the location of the case last week. Two cloth bags were taken. The 2012 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 7.4. Vehicle burglars look for any visible item located in your passenger compartment. If your property is secured in the trunk or removed from the vehicle, there will be no reason for them to shatter a window and enter. Remember, the items you leave are fair game.

O

ne man was shot and wounded on Monday night in what law enforcement officials are calling a “drive by shooting.” According to Norwalk Sheriffs Captain Patrick Maxwell, Norwalk deputies responded to the 11900 block of Highdale Street at 10 p.m. and found an 18 year old male Hispanic suffering from apparent wounds form a shotgun. The victim, a Norwalk resident, was transported to UCI Irvine Hospital where he was admitted for non life threatening injuries.

Touchdown Media which is based in Metuchen, NJ, specializes in “Publicity Solutions for the South Asian Marketplace.” The proposal’s aim is to boost the sales of businesses along the stretch of Pioneer Blvd. Touchdown Media Inc. also seeks to “promote the festival across all media to create interest in the event. The two-day shopping event will be held in association with the City of Artesia and the Artesia Chamber of Commerce. The original proposal was to host the festival in conjunction with Diwali, the weekend of Nov. 10 and 11. The event proposal calls for the closure of Pioneer Blvd. from 183rd to 188th to create a pedestrian atmosphere in the shopping district. However, owners of the business establishments on Pioneer Blvd. were not receptive of the dates claiming that business are already

busy during that weekend and they preferred to set the date during a slow phase after the holiday. The business owners also refused the road closure as they believe that will, on the contrary, slow down businesses in the area. The festival was moved to Dec. 8 to 9 and there will be no street closure except for a small portion east of 186th St. where the event organizer intend to place the four event sponsors’ booths. Dadian informed the Council that Touchdown Media claimed to have 150,000 viewers on its three TV channels and that to date there are 23 businesses on the event site that signed up for participation in terms of special sales discounts and offers. The event organizer will publish listing of all participating stores on a dedicated website: www.artesiashoppingfestival.com along

CALM RETURNS TO QUIET CERRITOS NEIGHBORHOOD AFTER ANTI-ISLAMIC FILMMAKER DEPARTS By Randy Economy randy@cerritosnews.net

E

nti-Islamic film maker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and his family have departed their now famous two-story Cerritos home in the cloak of darkness with the assistance of the Cerritos Sheriff’s Department. At 3:40 a.m. on Monday, three unmarked sheriff’s vehicles converged on the normally obscure Park Street cul-de-sac to escort family members of the 55-yearold anti-Islamic film maker. Each of the family members had their faces concealed with cloth bandanas. Around 24-hours earlier, Nakoula was escorted by deputies from the same location through a side gate while members of the media documented every step the controversial film maker took as he was lead into an unmarked sheriff’s patrol car. Nakoula and his family are not under arrest, and are not currently being charged

with any crimes, said Steve Whitmore a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The “Innocence of Muslims” filmmaker was interviewed by federal probation officials at the Cerritos Sheriff Station on Sunday morning and was apparently taken to an undisclosed “safe” location by law enforcement. Cerritos Sheriff’s Captain Joe Gonzalez would not comment on the particulars of Nakoula’s departure. On Monday, a handful of media trucks continued to be reporting from the front yard of the tattered home that included an abandoned head board and worn out couch. By Tuesday, the street was deserted and quiet solitude began to once again take center stage in the pristine enclave. The only sign that something took place at the home was a lone Cerritos Sheriff Deputy who sat in front of the property, and a home-made sign on the dirt covered front yard with the words: “Cerritos Sup-

ports Your Freedom of Speech!!!!!” Over the weekend, it was a chaotic scene on Park Street that saw a throng of media trucks from all over the world converged on the Greenbrook community as a summer heat wave baked area to a 105 degrees. During the standoff between members of the media and the Nakoula family, Los Cerritos Community Newspaper spoke to someone inside the house, through a closed front door who did not identify himself but commented, “I have nothing to say to you, please leave. I am telling you, leave me alone. I want you to leave, we want to be left alone,” the unidentified male adult said. The home is located off of Bloomfield Avenue near the 91 Freeway. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper confirmed that Nakoula’s three children are ages 13, 19 and 21 and all attended local Cerritos schools. The youngest is currently attending a middle school in Cerritos, LCCN can confirm.

Nakoula is reported to be the film maker who was behind the video being blamed for sparking violent unrest in at 30 countries throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Asia, Russia, Australia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen. Nakoula was escorted by deputies from his Park Street home as members of the media took photos of one of the most sought after people in the world. Nakoula is not under arrest, and is not currently being charged with any crimes, Steve Whitmore, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told LCCN. U.S. authorities are investigating whether the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya came during a planned terrorist attack as a result of the production of the film. Associated Press reported that federal court papers filed against Nakoula in a

Continued from page 1 ly understand the position of the seniors, completely, as well as the other players. Student safety is of paramount concern here along with program safety.” Earlier on Wednesday, an administrative statement was released stating that the Cerritos High School football program “will be modifying our schedule by participating at the junior varsity levels of competition for the remainder of the season”. Adams said that the players were notified by first-year head coach Darin Owens this past Tuesday afternoon around 2:00, first the 15 seniors, then the rest of the

team. Owens was not present at the question and answer session as he was attending a Suburban League coaches meeting. Also missing was Cerritos principal Janice Peterson, who was scheduled to attend a meeting with the other league principals and athletic directors. On hand, though, were nine members of the varsity football team. Most of the parents vented their frustrations towards the coaches and administration for the move, which Adams called “unprecedented”. This year’s varsity team consisted of 49 players, which is a far cry from the 22 that were on last year’s opening day roster. But the team lost its first four games of this season and failed to score a point. Players were getting seriously injured, including

some with broken collar bones and broken wrists, and that’s one of the main reasons why the administration decided to make this move. At least five players have been seriously injured this season. Adams said the injury situation this year with a bigger team in terms of numbers is worse than it was last season with a smaller team. “The goal that we have is to try to keep Cerritos football in a state of development as we move forward,” Adams said. “By getting us an opportunity to practice a little better, change the competition to where Monday’s and Tuesday’s are a little more productive for the younger kids…we can allow them to protect themselves and develop a little bit.” Some of the concerns that the parents had centered around what would happen to

Supporters Seeking to Reinstate Cerritos High School Varsity Football Program Take to Website Change.org By Randy Economy randy@cerritosnews.net

I

n the wake of the controversial decision to whip out the remaining varsity football season at Cerritos High School by campus officials, an on line petition drive has begun on Thursday that demand that the program be “left alone” for the remainder of the season. On the nationwide website www. change.org, the petition drive includes parents of current Dons football players, as well as a smattering of community members, and former Cerritos High School alumni. The petition is listed as “Cerritos High School Administration: Reinstate the varsity football program for the 2012-2013 year.”

“(Cerritos High School) Student athletes have put a lot of heart and hard work into achieving a varsity status for the start of the 2012-2013 school year. It is important that the athletes are given their chance to continue what they have started,” the petition states. “So much has been taken away from them with the decision to cancel the remaining varsity games. Some of these athletes will never be given the opportunity to represent their school or have a sense of fulfilling their individual goals on the main stage under the Friday night lights. Not only is this decision affecting the athletes, there are many other activities that take pride in showing their accomplishments. For example and not limited to band, cheerleaders, dance drill team, and others,” writes petition backer David Smith of Cerritos.

the players for the rest of the season, which is the entire six-game Suburban League slate. It’s still unknown how many players will continue to play out the remainder of the season. The varsity members will still earn a letter and a bar to place on his letterman jacket. Adams said that there will be a varsity team next season and that the school is looking into many avenues as far as the scheduling of non-league opponents. “I want the kids to be able to come back,” Adams said. “I want Friday nights to be an event. With all my heart, I want to continue and improve school spirit here to where the kids are doing fun things on Friday nights, and I’m not just talking about football.”

Cerritos High School football player Masseeh Yakuuby signed the petition and said “This is my team. They have no right to take it away from after all the hard work I put into it.” Lisa Barba who grew up in Cerritos, left the message, “(this is) more like lets teach the kids to be POOR SPORTS, BAD LOSERS AND QUITER'S!” “This is a terrible decision by Cerritos High School Administration. It is sending the message to the kids that if they can't have a winning team then they won't play at all,” said Placentia resident Laura Bremmer. “Academics are not the only thing needed! This means they can cancel any sport at any time, which will change my decision for my child to go there,” stated petition signer Debbie McMillan who is a resident of Cerritos.

At the time Director of Community Development said the permit was necessary because the city did not have any regulations governing second-hand stores. In other business a moratorium was approved by the council establishing new wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-of-way and prohibiting the issuance of building permits on other land use related entitlements. Management Analyst Ryan Carey said the staff was recommending a 45-day moratorium. In his report to the council, Ryan said the city code does not provide specific regulations that address the potential negative impacts associated with wireless telecommunication facilities in

Among the fake names, the documents said, were Nicola Bacily, Robert Bacily and Erwin Salameh, all similar to the Sam Bacile persona. Other aliases described in the documents included Ahmad Hamdy, Kritbag Difrat and PJ Tobacco. During the very first minutes of the long drama that began to unfold, Nakoula offered to show his driver’s license to show his identity but kept his thumb over his middle name, Basseley. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper saw mail that was addressed to Nakoula protruding from the Park Street home. . Several media outlets, including CNN, reported that Nakoula has a personal relationship with Morris Sadek, a conservative Coptic Christian in the U.S. who had promoted the anti-Muslim film in recent days on a website. Egypt’s Christian Coptic populace has long decried what they describe as a “history of discrimination” and “occasional violence” from the country’s Arab majority.

A representative from ATT requested the company be kept abreast, since many of its customers, both residential and businesses, are using wireless equipment who from time-to-time need to be serviced. The council agreed AT&T would be kept up-to-date and their input would be appreciated. In other business the council approved a contract with Marketing Software Company in Woodland Hill in the amount of $5,552.50 for Performing Arts Mailing List Data Processing Services. The contract is for 18-month period and can be extended for three additional 12-month terms. Services to be performed were approved in the 2012-13 fiscal year budget, The council also approved the purchase of a new 1/2-ton pickup truck for the Engineering Division of the Public Works Department from Wondries Fleet Group of Alhambra in the amount of $22,294.30. The purchase of a 3/4-ton pickup truck for the Parks Division of the Public Works Department was also approved in the amount of $31,445.23 from George Chevrolet in Bellflower. A contract was also awarded to Theodore Robins Ford of Costa Mesa in the amount of $56,934.80 for the Water and Power Department. Denise D. Manoogian, Director of Administrative Services, said the low bid was based on a gas engine, not diesel as required on the bid specifications.

Continued from page 1 Givens to publish the NBC”, said Hews. When LCCN learned of the filing, Hews was ready to challenge in court but was told by DeKay-Givens’ attorney that it was too late to object. “I called DeKayGivens’ attorney four days before the hearing, gave him evidence, but he said you are too late to object, so I did not go”, said Hews. Since no objection was heard, and with the judge trusting that DeKay-Givens’ filing statement was true, the judge awarded the lucrative adjudication to DeKay-Givens. Immediately after, DeKay-Givens sent letters to all legal posting companies and to the city of Norwalk. When a newspaper has the city legal adjudication they must publish notices with that paper. “DeKayGivens probably saw an increase in revenue of $1,000 to $2,000 per week after the ruling”, said Hews. “I had to file the Motion to Vacate, if she would fabricate papers about the NBC publishing status, who knows what else she would have tried”. In an apparent acknowledgement of her fabrication, DeKay Givens sent out the following the day before the August 15 Motion to Vacate hearing: “I must inform you the Norwalk Business Call, will, until further notice, will no longer be able to print your legal notices. Brian Hews, publisher of the Los Cerritos Community/Norwalk Community News/Hews Media Group filed a Motion to Vacate Judgment Adjudicating Norwalk Business Call as a Newspaper of General Circulation. The legal notices that are currently publishing will run their course, and will conclude on August 25, 2012. “DeKay Givens knew she filed fabricated papers. The day before the hearing she sent out a letter acknowledging she was going to lose the hearing, and that it was my fault”, said Hews. “If she knew then, then she must have known when she initially filed the papers.” LCCN has also been told by a source that, along with Mayor Kelly, Councilmen Marcel Rodarte and Leonard Shryock were behind the rise of the NBC. “We were told by this very credible source that they met to discuss the publication and how best to assure its’ success”, said Hews. “ The source also told us that our front page coverage of the crimes in Norwalk, along with several other investigative articlesthe Cerritos College Board of Trustees cash-in-lieu fiasco and the Hawaiian Gardens Barry Bruce/Cathy Nevejas scandal angered “high-level” people, so they decided to bring the NBC into Norwalk.” LCCN contacted current Norwalk Chamber of Commerce President Lynda Fisher but she would not comment. “she was actually extremely rude about our line of questioning and hung up the phone”, said Hews. LCCN also sent questions via email to all Norwalk Council members: Mayor Kelly, Rodarte, Shryock, Mendez, and Vice-Mayor Vernola, with Vernola the only councilmember to respond. “Given the evidence, I think this is wrong and should be looked into”, said Vice-Mayor Vernola. “We use a system that enables us to see if the recipient opened the email and every councilmember did, so they cannot say they did not read our questions”, said Hews. “It is very interesting the others did not respond.” Asked what next steps he will take Hews responded, “ my attorneys and I are looking at all options as it relates to DeKay-Givens and the city. There was a clear intent by all involved to financially injure and hurt the reputation of my newspaper”. The conformed copy of the Motion to Vacate can be found at www. loscerritosnews.net.

PAPER TRAIL

S

ince December 2011, Vivian Hansen, Cheri Kelly, Joe Derthick and others were trying very hard to bring the Norwalk Business Call into Norwalk. Secrecy was embedded in Chamber and city policy and procedures E-mails were obtained via the Freedom of Information Act. “We [the Norwalk Chamber] signed the agreement with Jennifer [Dekay Givens] of the Downey Patriot yesterday to sell the Norwalk Chamber masthead. Jennifer is moving forward with publishing the new paper starting next week and the first edition should be out by Friday.”

Notice filed by DeKay Givens for adjudication in Norwalk. Filed under section 6000, …Downey Patriot is the publisher of the Norwalk Business Call… the principal business address is 12040 Foster Rd, Norwalk [Norwalk Chamber address], the paper has a bona fide subscription list of paying subscribers… for more than one year preceding the filing it has been publishing and printed in Norwalk… during the three-year period preceding the filing the paper had minimal coverage of Norwalk. The notice is signed under penalty of perjury by DeKay Givens.

“A reminder we [the Norwalk Chamber] are scheduled to meet with Jennifer of the Downey Patriot newspaper tomorrow [December 2011] at Rob [Caseras] Outback Steakhouse. Cheri [Kelly] and Mike- I am not sure if an invitation to attend this meeting was sent to Mayor Mike Mendez or not. I know we definitely want to include him in our discussion…”

street from the now famous home, says he has lived in Cerritos for the past 14 years and said that the family are “pretty nice people,” but said that Nakoula “hardly talked to anyone.” ”It is hard to imagine what is going on here in my front yard, drive way and street,” Saw said. “We are watching our home on our television sets on CNN, FOX News and even on the British Broadcasting Channel,” he said. Alan Chowdhely, 47, who live around the corner from Nakoula said the situation was “too much” for him to “get his arms around.” “There are lots of good people in this world, and many bad people.  This is like a scene out of a real bad movie,” said Chowdhely. He said he is concern what is going to happen, “after the media trucks leave.” Marcel Teloma, 18, from Cerritos who

attends Oxford Academy in nearby Cypress, and his fried Matt Fisher, 16 who is a student at Whitney High School in Cerritos, both said they couldn’t believe “this stuff happens in places like Cerritos. You hear about this happening in other places around the world, like in the Middle East, not here,” said Teloma. “All of my friends have taken to Facebook and other social network sites asking me what’s going on here, and if I know Nakoula,” Teloma said. Marvin Brown, 54, who is a graduate from Cerritos High School in 1976, and a resident of Cerritos for more than 40 years said he heard about the controversial video a “few days ago.” “I am a political junkie at heart,” Brown, who was donning a hat promoting the reelection of President Barack Obama, said “watching this world-wide situation unfold literally a block from where I grew up is surreal.” “I think this guy (Nakoula) is going to be in big trouble,” said Brown. “Cerritos is a loving community. We are racial

mixed and this isn’t what we represent as a neighborhood or a city,” said Brown. Mohammad Dehdul, 20, a graduate of Cerritos High School said he has lived in Cerritos his “entire life, and this community is about diversity, not about hate. This is just plain crazy.” Shebani Patel, 20, another former Cerritos High School graduate said she found out about the news when her mother came running into the house and said there were dozens of news reporters on her street.  ”What in the world has happened to our neighborhood,” said Patel. “The circus is finally leaving our neighborhood,” one resident on Park Street told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper on Monday afternoon who did not want to be identified. “Now what can we expect, people are still being killed around the globe.   It is on every news channel. I don’t feel safe here,” said another Park Street resident who also sought anonymity. Neighbors describe Nakoula as being “nice, but very quiet.”

The crash resulted in the arrest of three suspected carjacking suspects, and the injuries to other innocent drivers as well as the closure of 183rd Street for several hours. Lt. Nicassio of the Lakewood Sheriff’s Department told Los  Cerritos Community Newspaper late Tuesday night those Deputies initiated a pursuit at Norwalk Boulevard and 207th Street in Artesia of a vehicle for “driving under the influence.” The pursuit was terminated by a LakePhoto by Randy Economy wood Sheriff’s Field Sergeant since the suspected vehicle was heading toward Cerritos Cerritos High School Principal Janice Peterson at scene of car crash.

Containment was established around the Cerritos Towne Center area and all of the suspects were located and arrested. The vehicle was later confirmed stolen out of LAPD’s area.

Gahr’s Baumann Finds District Rival to His Liking, Gladiators Retain Milk Barrel WEEK THREE FOOTBALL By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

A

s the season goes on, albeit just four weeks long, Gahr senior quarterback Caleb Baumann is starting to get very familiar with his new team. The Downey Calvary Chapel transfer posted solid numbers for the second straight week and against his ABC Unified School District rivals as the Gladiators pounded Artesia 59-25 last Friday night at Hanford Rants Stadium.

Baumann passed for a season-high 367 yards and threw five touchdowns for the second straight week as Gahr will once again keep the silver Milk Barrel for the fourth year in a row and sixth time in the past seven seasons. Gahr blanked Cerritos 53-0 the previous week in the first leg of the race to call itself district champions. “As a first-year player at this school it was really fun for me,” Baumann said. “It’s a great rivalry. Now that our team is starting to bond, we’re starting to get the offense; we’re starting to click. It’s going real good. I was really happy to be a part of it” Gahr scored touchdowns on all four of its third quarter possessions to turn a nine-point halftime lead into a 56-19 rout before the running clock was employed in the fourth quarter. The hosts were already leading 7-0 on an eight-yard run from senior running back Alex Kline when Baumann began to heat up. He threw four straight passes, the last going for a 10-yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Christian Pabico to increase the margin to 14-0. Baumann would then end the quarter with a 44-yard score to Pabico as he completed 10 of 15 passes for 141 yards in the stanza. But Artesia (1-3) kept Gahr’s offense off the field for a good chunk of the second quarter, including the first 6:36 and got on the board when senior quarterback Francisco Galan found sophomore wide receiver Cris-

The drive was kept alive when Gahr was called for a roughing the punter penalty. “We didn’t execute very well, obviously, in the first half,” said Gahr head coach Greg Marshall. “It all started when we roughed the punter, if we roughed him. And then all of a sudden we had another penalty.” Baumann responded and hit senior wide receiver Patrick Enewally for 13 yards to make it a 28-6 lead. Artesia then went into its bag of tricks and made it a game in the

final minutes of the half. On fourth and 13 from the Gahr 32-yard line, junior wide receiver Tytus Simmons hauled in a touchdown pass from senior Richard Randall on a flea flicker. “That’s been in our playbook for years now and we haven’t shown the reverse all year,” said Artesia head coach Joe Veach. “We used that reverse earlier in the game to Cristian. We were there on fourth down and

Artesia Gives Cerritos All it Can Handle in Suburban League Opener SUBURBAN LEAGUE VOLLEYBALL By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

T

he 2012 girls volleyball season hasn’t gone the way Cerritos head coach Khanh Vo expected thus far as His team vies for a fourth straight Suburban League title. Already, he has seen his new varsity setter break her arm before the season even started, followed by a 2-4 start with one of those victories being a forfeit win in the Gahr/Molten Volleyball Classic. Recently, three players quit the team and Vo has had to shuffle his lineup around but the new personnel was good enough to get past Artesia 25-18, 25-18, 25-11 this past Tuesday in the league opener for both teams. The Lady Dons were led by junior outside hitter Mariah Gonzalez (18 kills), senior outside hitter Arnelle Duru (12 kills) and senior middle blocker Bali Leffall Young (nine kills).

“It’s going to be a work in progress,” Vo said. “The talent, I think, is there, especially with Arnelle and Bali and Mariah. It’s just when you’re down to three instead of four or five, you have to play a little harder. When you’re a little bit balanced, then you kind of rely on your other players who are hot at that time.” But early on, it looked as if the Pioneers (0-7 overall) would pull off the shocker. They held a 14-10 lead after an ace from senior outside hitter Faith Devera. Moments later with the score 15-13, a kill from Gonzalez gave Cerritos the serve and junior libero Rachel Fitterer reeled off five straight points, including two aces. Artesia got to within two points at 20-18, but Gonzalez had her ninth kill, then served the final four points of the set. Artesia hung around in the second set and after falling behind 14-10 and 15-12, began to make a charge. Junior middle blocker Daisy Briseno had three straight kills and a block to put her team in front 17-15. But with the visitors leading 18-16, a serve into the net gave Gonzalez the serve

and she ran off the final eight points of the set. By now, Cerritos was gaining the momentum it was looking for from the very beginning and wasn’t challenged much in the third set, racing out to a 9-4 lead on seven straight points served from sophomore outside hitter Madison Lee. “They just started making a decision that they had already lost,” said Artesia head coach Micah Burpo. “I think it’s the best we’ve played all year. But the breakdown was definitely spirit.” After Artesia scored the next four points, Cerritos put the match away when Fitterer reeled off seven consecutive points with three aces and a pair of kills each from Duru and Gonzalez. While Duru, Gonzalez and Leffall Young combined for all but five kills from the Lady Dons, it was the work of sophomore setter Kaitlyn Bales who made it possible for Cerritos to get its third overall victory. Bales had to be rushed into her new position once fellow sophomore Lorinet Marquez was lost for the seasonis This is This

with so many guys going both ways and not coming off the field...we have a tendency to let things kind of snowball on us.” Baumann would toss touchdown passes of 13 yards to senior wide receiver Kendren Pitchford and nine yards to Enewally while Kline scored on runs of 11 and 42 yards as the Gladiators led 56-19. Kline would end the game with 188 yards on 14 carries and has now found the end zone seven times in four games. “He’s a very versatile back; he can pretty much do it all,” Marshall said. “I’m just happy for the kid because he has always wanted to be the running back. Last year, Zach [Otto] was tremendous, and so [Alex] had to wait his turn. He’s taking advantage of this opportunity.” After throwing four interceptions and 265 yards in the season-opener at Lakewood, Baumann has come back to throw for 310, 339 and 367 yards respectively in the past three weeks with 12 touchdowns and three interceptions. “I have to give credit to the line,” Bau-

mann said. “They give me pass protection. Then we have No. 30, Alex. He’s a huge weapon. When he runs, it opens up the pass more for us and it makes our job easier. We have really smart receivers. This is an offense where you have to be smart. You just can’t go out there and do your thing. You have to understand what [offensive coordinator] Jon [Nielsen] is trying to do and make the reads and do everything right so we can be successful.” “I thought at times we were able to put some pressure on him, but not enough,” Veach said. “We had some personnel issues where we had to take our best defensive lineman and play him at linebacker. That hurt. When we did try to bring extra guys to put pressure on him, we just weren’t very good in that situation.” Pabico caught six passes for 172 yards while Enewally, in his second game of the season, hauled in five passes for 85 yards. Gahr will conclude its non league schedule at La Habra tonight. The Highlanders advanced to the semifinals for the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Southwest Division last season but enter tonight’s game at 1-3. Gahr also cracked the Southeast Division top 10 poll with its victory. “I think the offense is starting to gel,” Marshall said. “He’s starting to pick it up. He’s not turning the ball over and making silly plays. He realizes that he doesn’t have to do everything on one play.” The Pioneers, who have now been outscored 74-0 in the third quarter and 80-25 in the second half, scored on the last play of the game when Galan found Simmons for a 30-yard connection. Galan struggles all night long and completed seven passes for 63 yards. Rodriguez picked up 34 yards on six carries. Artesia will visit Mayfair tonight in its Suburban League opener. “We’re 0-0,” Veach said. “That’s what we tell the kids [every year] and that’s what we told the kids after the game. We wish we were 4-0. We wish we were maybe 3-1. We wish we were at least 2-2 but we’re not. We’re 1-3 but none of that matters anymore because we’re getting into league and we have to try to get this first win.”

of senior middle blocker Kyla Kelly (three kills) will help the team. Then, there’s the issue of a new setter, senior Bianca Espinoza, who transferred from Cerritos but hasn’t been eligible yet. “Huge; we have nobody else to put in the middle,” Burpo said of Kelly’s return. “She makes a big difference. After Oct. 1 when we get our setter in there, we can deliver some hittable balls. A lot of our balls are not that hittable.” “I thought she had a great match,” Vo said of Briseno. “At the same time I thought we kind of allowed her to because volleyball is a team game. You can’t do everything by yourself and I thought when she was in the front row blocking, we made her job easy by making hitting errors.”

Cerritos will host Bellflower on Tuesday, then gets set for its first real test in league when it travels to La Mirada on Thursday. Artesia hosted Bellflower on Sept. 20 and will entertain La Mirada on Tuesday before going to Norwalk on Thursday. With Kelly and soon to be Espinoza in the lineup, Burpo is now hopeful of more wins than originally anticipated when the season began. “I think we may be able to challenge those teams and maybe beat some of them,” Burpo said. “When we base our judgment off of Cerritos, usually being the best in the league, I do [think we can win some games]. My mindset is going to change a little bit and maybe my strategy will change a little bit.”

I called a timeout and kind of thought that if we send Cristian in motion, I know everybody is going to key on him. Hopefully it will get everybody flying to him.” Then on Gahr’s fourth play of the ensuing possession, Rodriguez stripped the ball from Pabico and ran 45 yards the other way as the clock read triple zeros. The touchdown was crucial to the Pioneers because they would open the second half with the ball. However, they went three and out and had a punt blocked, giving Gahr great field possession. From that point on until the end of the third quarter, Artesia gained negative two yards in the third quarter. “I don’t think [halftime] came at a bad time,” Veach said of the momentum late in the first half. “The second half has been an issue for us and I really think that was more of a case than losing momentum. Our kids were gassed by the end of the first half and

But I was put in a predicament where I have to train multiple setters. I just decided to go with the youth movement and at the same time train height. She’ll essentially be the future of the program in terms of the setter position.” Artesia is also dealing with its set of issues. As been the case in the first seven matches, Briseno was the leader in kills with 17. Burpo is hoping that the return

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.

CITY OF CERRITOS ORDINANCE NO. 972 AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CERRITOS ESTABLISHING A MORATORIUM ON NEW WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATION FACILITIES IN THE PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY AND PROHIBITING THE ISSUANCE OF BUILDING PERMITS, USE PERMITS, AND ANY OTHER LAND USE ENTITLEMENTS RELATED THERETO. WHEREAS, zoning and other land use chapters within the Cerritos Municipal Code do not provide specific direction with regard to wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-ofway; and, WHEREAS, in order to address the City's concerns regarding the establishment and location of wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-of-way, it is necessary for the City of Cerritos to study the potential impact such facilities may have on aesthetics, and to consider adoption of regulations based on said studies; and, WHEREAS, pursuant to Sections 36937 and 65858 of the California Government Code, to protect the public safety, health and welfare, a City Council may adopt as an urgency measure an interim ordinance prohibiting land uses that may be in conflict with a contemplated General Plan, Specific Plan or Zoning proposal that a legislative body, planning commission or planning department is considering or studying or intends to study within a reasonable time; and, WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Cerritos wishes to implement comprehensive regulations for the establishment, use and operation of wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-of-way within the City of Cerritos, so that the public welfare is protected, and the aesthetics and visual qualities of the City are protected and maintained; and, WHEREAS, the City Council desires to insure that, during the pendency of the study for the formulation and implementation of said comprehensive regulations, wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-of-way are not established, in use or become operational, so that the regulations produced by the City's study activity will be fully effective; and, WHEREAS, permitting wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-of-way in the City of Cerritos prior to the adoption of said regulations may result in a current and immediate threat to the aesthetics, public health, safety and welfare during the implementation of comprehensive regulations. THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CERRITOS DOES HEREBY ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS: SECTION 1. The City Council finds that the facts set forth in the recitals above are true and correct and hereby adopts the recitals as findings in furtherance of this ordinance. SECTION 2. The City Council further finds that potential adverse impacts from wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-of-way exist and present a current and immediate threat to the visual aesthetics of the City. SECTION 3. The City of Cerritos Municipal Code does not specifically address wireless telecommunications facilities in the public-right-of-way. In accordance with Section 22.42.070 of the Cerritos Municipal Code, wireless telecommunication facilities are considered nonbuilding-mounted and are subject to location and design criteria only. SECTION 4. Cerritos General Plan Goal CD-6 states the City should ensure that wireless telecommunication facilities are located and designed to protect the communities welfare and aesthetic qualities. SECTION 5. Cerritos General Plan Policy CD-6.1 states that the City should continue to regulate the siting and design of wireless telecommunication facilities, accessory buildings, structures, and associated equipment to minimize their aesthetic impacts on the community. SECTION 6. Cerritos General Plan Policy CD-6.2 encourages the use of stealth designed wireless telecommunications facilities so that the facilities, including all supporting equipment, are concealed or camouflaged so as to blend with surrounding land uses. SECTION 7. Cerritos General Plan Goal CD-2 encourages the creation of an attractive street environment that will complement private and public properties, create beauty within the public right-of-way, and be comfortable for residents and visitors. SECTION 8. Cerritos General Plan Goal CD-2.13 states that the City should study the locational requirements of utility, traffic control and other cabinets and hardware located in the public right-of-way to determine alternative locations for these items in less obtrusive areas of the street environment. SECTION 9. Cerritos General Plan Goal CD-2.15 states that the City should work with utility providing agencies to coordinate the design of utility facilities to ensure that the facilities fit within the context of their surroundings and do not cause negative visual impacts. SECTION 10. The City Council hereby establishes an interim prohibition on the establishment, development, construction and/or operation of new telecommunication wireless facilities in the public right-of-way of the City. SECTION 11. Notwithstanding any other ordinance or provision of the Cerritos Municipal Code, no person shall establish, develop, construct, a wireless telecommunication device on the public right-of-way, and no application for a business license, building permit, conditional use permit, or any other entitlement authorizing the establishment, development, construction, maintenance, and/or operation of any wireless telecommunication device in the public right-of-way shall be approved during the term of the prohibition. Said moratorium shall not be applicable to any wireless telecommunication facilities in the public right-of-way with a wireless telecommunication permit approved by the City as of the date of this ordinance regardless of the status of the building permit issuance or wireless telecommunication facilities that are appurtenances to a franchisee's facilities pursuant to a franchise with the City. SECTION 12. The City Council declares that this ordinance is necessary as an urgency measure to preserve and address existing and immediate threats to the public welfare (aesthetics and visual qualities). This ordinance, therefore, is adopted pursuant to the provisions of Sections 36937(b) and 65858 of the California Government Code, shall be adopted by a four-fifths vote of the City Council, shall take effect immediately upon its adoption pursuant to Section 36937(b) of the California Government Code, and shall remain in effect for a period of 45 days, unless extended by the City Council pursuant to California Government Code Section 65858(b). SECTION 13. City staff is directed to study the applicable legal and land use issues and develop appropriate zoning and licensing guidelines or regulations governing such uses. SECTION 14. The City Council hereby finds that it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the adoption of this ordinance, and the prohibition established hereby, may have a significant effect on the environment, because the ordinance will impose greater limitations on development in the City, and will thereby serve to reduce potential significant adverse environmental impacts. It is therefore exempt from California Environmental Quality Act review pursuant to Title 14, Section 15061(b)(3) of the California Code of Regulations. SECTION 15. Violation of any provision of this ordinance shall constitute a misdemeanor and shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) or by imprisonment for a period not to exceed six (6) months, or by both such fine and imprisonment. Each and every day such a violation exists shall constitute a separate and distinct violation of this ordinance. SECTION 16. The violation of any of the provisions of this ordinance hereby adopted shall constitute a nuisance and may be abated by the City through civil process by means of restraining order, preliminary or permanent injunction or in any other manner provided by law for the abatement of such nuisances.

SECTION 17. The City Clerk shall certify to the adoption of this ordinance.
