Uncertainty in State Budget leaves ABC’s Budget in flux

New Cerritos Sculpture installed on Park Plaza Drive

"Angelic Duet" finds its' final resting place in front of the ATT/CareMore building on Park Plaza Dr.

"Angelic Duet" was finally installed in Cerritos this past Thursday morning. A large crane lifted "Angelic Duet" onto a pedestal located next to the CareMore office building at 12900 Park Plaza Drive in the Cerritos Towne Center. James T. Russell, the artist who created the sculpture, was on site to supervise the installation. "Angelic Duet" took a long and circuitous route to Cerritos. In 1978 the artwork was commissioned by the State of California and was installed at the Junipero Serra State Office Building in Los Angeles. The State sold the building and the artwork was removed and placed in a Sacramento storage facility where it has languished since 2003. The California Arts Council was unable to find a suitable location for "Angelic Duet" and decided to seek an agency with a well-recognized public art program to provide a prominent location for the sculpture. The California Arts Council and the California Department of General Services made the piece available to the City at no cost for 30 years, with options to renegotiate the contract prior to the expiration date. The sculpture was removed from storage in Sacramento and trucked to its new home in Cerritos. "Angelic Duet" is one of the largest pieces ever created for the State's public artwork program. The sculpture is composed of two linear stainless steel structures. The taller piece is 38 feet tall, and the shorter piece is 36 feet tall. The piece has strong, clean bold lines paired with gentle undulating curves.

By Jerry Bernstein Criticizing the State Legislature for not facing up to the continuous state budget crisis, ABC Superintendent Gary Smuts told the Board of Education at its Oct. 19 meeting the budget signed by the governor this month is already 10 billion in deficit. The new governor, whoever she or he might be is gong to have to grapple with some very difficult issues. He said some of the budget issues are still very fuzzy. “This is a terrible condition the state is in and terrible fiscal behavior on the part of the leaders of California.” ABC Chief Financial Officer Toan Nguyen said the budget signed by the governor has gone deeper into deficit and is now out of balance by $12 billion. “The budget defers a lot of problems into future years,” he asserted. He said the budget restores some of the cuts to education that was made in May but defers payment until 2011-13. We may get paid [See BUDGET Page 10]

It was first known in 1945 as Artesia airport then in 1946 it was renamed Cranford. By Brian Hews Not too many know that a small general aviation airport was built at some point in 1945 North of South St and West of Carmenita.

At that time it was called Artesia Airport and was classified as a commercial or municipal field. The June 1946 Department of Commerce Airman's Guide described “Artesia Airport” as being renamed “Cranford Airport” as of June 18, 1946. The guide described Cranford Air-

Sergeant E-5 Raymond Ramirez and was chosen by the newly created Veterans Advisory Council. Sergeant Ramirez began his military career in 1964 when he enlisted with the U.S. Army and was immediately deployed to Vietnam. He was assigned to the 173rd Airborne Brigade, the first major ground combat unit of the U.S. Army to serve in Vietnam. Ramirez exhibited courage and heroism while in combat, earning him awards and medals including the Combat Infantry Badge and the Army Commendation Medal with “V” Device, 2nd Oak Leaf Cluster. His unit also received the Presidential Unit Cita-

tion (Navy) for assisting the U.S. Marines in the fall of 1966, and the U.S. Army Meritorious Unit Citation. Upon his return from Vietnam in June of 1967, he was assigned to the 1st Armored Division at Fort Hood, TX. "Sergeant Ramirez’ dedication to our country is inspiring and I was pleased to honor him today," said Congresswoman Sánchez. "It’s vitally important that we never forget the sacrifices made by our fighting men and women. I look forward to recognizing a new veteran each month." Following his discharge from the Army Ramirez attended Rio Hondo College and California State University, Los Angeles. He then worked for several years in the defense industry and later with the County of Los Angeles and the City of Commerce for more than 25 years. He is currently an active member of the American Veterans Post 113 (Irwindale, CA) and the Association of the 173d Airborne Brigade, where he is the former President of the Western States, Chapter 10. Notably, he serves on the board of directors for the 173d Airborne Brigade National Memorial Foundation whose “sole mission” is to build a 173d Memorial “on a piece of American soil.” To honor Sergeant Ramirez’ hard work and dedication to his country, he was presented with a flag flown over the capitol in his name. The presentation took place at Congresswoman Sánchez’ Cerritos office Friday. The “Veteran of the Month” program is coordinated by her Veterans Advisory Council, comprised of distinguished veterans from across the district. Each month, a veteran will be recognized for their service overseas and here at home.

CERRITOS SHERIFF’S STATION

Weekly Crime Summary October 11-17, 2010 Twenty-eight Part I felony investigations were conducted by members of the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station last week, up from twenty the previous period. Robberies and commercial burglaries increased, residential burglaries remained the same, while vehicle burglaries and vehicle thefts declined. Calls for service increased by one after 273 were recorded. The 2010 weekly average in calls for service remained at 299. There was one robbery reported. A lone gunman robbed a bank in the 11800 block of South Street on Thursday October 14 at 10:45 a.m. There were three residential burglaries reported last week, the same as the previous week. Two windows were left open or unlocked, and a sliding glass door was pried last week. Jewelry and laptop computers were stolen. The current 2010 weekly average in residential burglaries is 2.6. We have previously mentioned that the residential burglar will try to enter the home with the least amount of effort. Leaving doors and windows open creates that effortless opportunity. In one case last week, a second story window was left open and was used as a point of entry. Regardless of where the door or window is located, make sure that you check and secure them prior to leaving the residence. There were three commercial burglaries reported. Two were investigated the week before. All were closed businesses last week. A glass door was shattered, a window was pried, and a [See CRIME Page 10]

Apparently the foreign dignitary had been accused on the Internet of being an insurgent and terrorist and charged with demolishing a mosque. “After that experience, I have instructed my staff to do a careful Internet search on anyone who is to receive any awards from the city.” Lima has tried to run the city like a business in order to make Artesia more efficient, but he is not in favor of cutting important public services such as law enforcement, parks and recreation, and street maintenance.

He has given numerous speeches at various ceremonies and events involving a multitude of ethnic groups and has learned a few introductory words in the process. Lima said the worst time to be Mayor of any city is during rough economic times when there need to be budget cuts that require laying off workers and cutting back on salaries. “Recently, I had my resignation ready to turn in so I could move to a nearby city with higher salaries for city councilmembers, but once the councilmembers were arrested, I decided against it,” Lima said jokingly. Artesia is home to more than 17,000 people who speak 48 languages and live in the “Heart of Cerritos” on only 1.6 square miles of property. Lima is never totally prepared for what may happen at any public event. He has been surprised when asked to speak in front of large audiences when he thought he was there to only be a guest. “Mark Twain once said that it took him about two weeks to make a good impromptu speech, so you can imagine how I made mine in 30 seconds.” Once he presented an award to a for-

“We are in the process of renovating downtown Artesia, to build a parking structure to service businesses and to purchase land to accommodate the housing requirements set by the state of California.” Since there is no vacant land left in the city, Lima said the only alternative is to go up. “We also need to make better use of existing buildings to incorporate commercial, office professionals and residential components.” During the past three years, Lima has worked diligently to bring back the Artesia Chamber of Commerce that had been out of business for nearly five years. A new Chamber is now up and running and in its beginning stages with lots of enthusiasm. Congresswoman Linda Sanchez has agreed to be its keynote speaker at its Oct. 28 monthly luncheon to discuss the state of the nation’s economy and how the Congress is trying to support small businesses. The location is the Great Seafood Harbor Restaurant at 18329 Pioneer Boulevard in Artesia from noon to 1:30. The luncheon is open to the public and everyone is invited to attend.

Cirque mechanics build a show at Cerritos By Glen Creason

After several visits to Cirque du Soleil and other spin-offs of the animal-less circuses that proliferated in the 80’s and 90’s I kind of had my fill of the grandscale whimsy of these performances. The multi-colored lighting, the noodling mood music, the aerial daredevilry, the oddball clowns and the obtuse presentation began to blur a bit. It’s not that they weren’t incredible and enjoyable for all ages but they ceased to enchant me as they did when I first took my kid back in the day. My whimsy-meter was on empty. However, the unique splinter of the Cirque themes called Cirque Mechanics took over the Cerritos Center for the

Performing Arts at midweek and pretty much removed unnecessary whimsy and replaced it with down home acrobatics. All this amongst a backdrop that is as relatively plain as the 1860’s gold mining camp they call Boom Town in this show. It’s not really a redneck circus or some bowl of corny camp as you might suspect from the lobby cards. Instead the review presents a mixture of clowning, exuberant acrobatics and some amazing machinery that gives the tricks an extra dimension. The troupe is smaller and the sets simpler but the ability and charm of the performers pans out as pure gold in this show. There are three main components to the show and they are evenly spread out over the ninety-minute experience that is lots of fun for those on both sides of the

A S K T H E D O C TO R What are Cataracts and how common are they? Cataracts are a common eye condition that affects more than half of Americans over the age of 65. Fortunately, cataracts can be surgically treated by removing the clouded lens of the eye and replacing it with a clear, artificial lens. What are the symptoms and how and how do I know if I need surgery? Cataracts may not be noticeable in their earliest stages, but as they progress, vision will become more blurred and reduced. Symptoms of cataracts also include brown-tinted vision, halos around objects, poor night vision, double vision, glare around lights and colors that appear faded. Cataract surgery may be recommended when you are no longer able to see well enough to perform daily activities or if cataracts interfere with treatment for another eye problem, such

How is the recovery? Although you can expect your vision to start improving within a few days af after surgery, complete recovery usually takes about eight weeks. You may feel some itching and mild discomfort for a few days after the procedure, but it is important to avoid rubbing or pressing on your eye.

These include cheek biting, lip biting, and scuffing of the oral lining from hard foods. Cheek biting that occurs over and over can be corrected by your dentist with minor alterations to offending teeth that catch the cheek and lip. Habitual gnawing on the cheek can create a fibrous bump that frequently gets caught up between the teeth. This bump should be removed by your dentist.

the cornea and removing the hard center of the lens in one piece. In both procedures, the very back of the lens is left in place to help position the new artificial lens. The implant, called an intraocular lens, is made of acrylic, plastic or silicone. It becomes a permanent part of the eye and will not require additional care. You will not be able to feel or see the new lens.

gum disease it still remains that bleeding is the number one indicator for activity level for this problem. Bleeding is caused by harmful bacteria invading the space between the gums and teeth. The body’s immune response will try to stop the invasion and swelling of the gums that is occurring. This “battlefield” will leak blood upon gentle probing, flossing, and brushing. As blood leaks out bacteria leak into the blood system and circulate around the body. The body’s immune system will generally take care of the invaders. However, if a person has a compromised immune system and is not healthy these bacteria can invade other vital organs. The inflammatory load on the body is increased and other inflammatory related diseases can be affected. I would advise that we look at any bleeding as a portal of entry into our body by invading organisms. That especially includes oral bleeding. The mouth is very exposed to bacteria, viruses, fungus, and molds. Fortunately, the mouth is protected by our immune system and has proven to be very forgiving. Yet the oral immune system can be overcome by bad habits. Ignoring warning signs, like bleeding, is not advised. Consult with your dentist if you are aware of bleeding when brushing and flossing. Ask your dental hygienist if they can detect any bleeding sites that could be serious.

Cerritos College Board of Trustees discuss Budget by Victor Diaz The Cerritos College Board of Trustees meeting Oct. 20 addressed a followup presentation of the Cerritos College budget which was given at its previous meeting by Vice-president of Business Services David El Fattal. El Fattal reported that through advanced apportionment, Cerritos will be receiving $1.4 million on Oct. 22 from the state,. He also mentioned that with the arrival of more money coming through Nov. 4, the school is should receive $23 million that was deferred by the State last September. However, he said, “In any event, we may have to borrow a little bit more money our reserve before these funds start coming in, depending upon what our expenditures are.� El Fattal said that about 25 to 26 percent will be apportioned to Cerritos and the remainder will be given next year. He also gave an update on a report that was given regarding $35 million of the state budget being used for categorical backfill, which, he informed,the Board was vetoed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Lastly, El Fattal spoke about the groundbreaking for the remodeling of the new baseball field, which he attended. Other subjects that were touched upon at the meeting included the recognition of the classified employee of the month for September, that was awarded to Cindy Lo, a program facilitator for the Economics Department. In the presentation, Cerritos College President Linda Lacy said, “Cindy is especially good with our business partners. She updates them regularly including the new training that is being offered and works diligently to turn training concepts into reality.� In regard to her experience working at Cerritos, Lo simply said, “I love it here.� Student Trustee Felipe Grimaldo gave a report of the homecoming events that occurred on Oct. 16. One event Grimaldo mentioned was the homecoming dance that followed the football game against Ventura City College. Grimaldo said, “The dance was a huge success. At the same time, there were no incidents, so maybe next year we can reinstate it and make it something to look forward to for the students as well.� Grimaldo credited the success of homecoming night to the amount of participation by students as well as the success of the dance. He also mentioned that due to the dance’s success, this

Students lived an exciting, navy experience with navy chow, bunks, and regimented lifestyle for the one night. On Saturday morning students woke up to reveille being announced at 0600. More science activities followed with a lecture on Newton's Laws and how they applied to an aircraft carrier followed by more navy chow for breakfast. The highlight of the trip took place at the Naval Air Station on North Island. There they got to see two Sea Hawk helicopter squadrons up close and personal. The navy personnel did a great job answering all the students’ questions. For many of these middle school students last weekend was the experience of a lifetime.

BUDGET

Continued from page 1 next year. He said ABC would have to deal with a 6.5 million deficit in the current budget. Nguyen said the District would deal with that by implementing previously passed measures. This includes continuing four furlough days [$2,160,000], transfer from Health Benefits/Workers Compensation funds [655,000], and the Adult Education Fund [$1 million], plus additional flexibility transfers [$1,565,000]. Increase class size K-3 from 22 to 24 [$460,000], reduce administrators by 2.5 positions [$280,000], reduce MOTF staff by three ]$200,000] and reduce classified support staff by three [$180,000] that will leave us ending with a balance budget if the state comes through with the money. Going into 2011-12 we will have a structural deficit of $10.3 million. He said this would probably change with the coming in of a new governor. He said new revenues include Education Job Act, $3,877,000 [one time only], ARRA-Final 10 percent, $990,000 [one time only], and Mandated Cost, $650,000 [one time only], leaving a project ending balance June 30,2011 of $10,217,000. Board President Celia Spitzer asked what does the District do if the state continues to defer payment. “What do we do? We still have to pay our bills. How do we do that? Do we borrow money?” Nguyen replied, “We would issue Trans [short term, tax exempt securities] the Board previously approved to pay bills and payroll.” He said the county has an emergency fund the District can borrow from. It can also borrow from a fund within the District. He said, “We work closely with the county on cash management.”

Dr. Smuts said both the District and County have to manage cash flow to the rule of auditing practices. “The state has no such obligation. We are constantly on guard to the inconsistencies of the state’s lack of common honest practices.”

CRANFORD

Continued from page 1 Then in 1949, the San Diego Sectional Chart described Cranford Airport as having a 2,700' unpaved runway. The Alley's, who owned a lumber yard in nearby Downey, purchased the Cranford airport sometime in the years following WW2 as a real estate investment. Cranford Airport evidently gained a paved runway at some point between 1949-51, as the March 1951 San Diego Sectional Chart depicted Cranford as having a 2,200' hard surface runway. The earliest photo which has been located of Cranford Airport was a 1952 aerial view. It depicted the field as indeed having 2 runways, one oriented north/ south & the other northeast/southwest. A dozen light aircraft were parked on the southwest side of the field. Cranford Airport apparently closed at some point between 1953-54, as it was no longer depicted on the September 1954 San Diego Sectional Chart. It was evidently a very short-lived airfield, only lasting no more than 9 years. A 1972 aerial view showed no trace of the airport, with dense housing having covered the site. In the March 2004 USGS aerial photo of the site of Cranford Airport, incredibly, even though the area has been densely developed, the former northeast/southwest runway appears to have remained intact. The former runway is still quite recognizable in the photo -it forms the north edge of the parking lot of the retail shopping complex which has been built along the southern portion of the former airport site.

CRIME

Continued from page 2 rear door was forced open. Loss items consisted of laptop computers, a sump pump, and a printer. The 2010 weekly average in commercial burglaries is 2.5. Vehicle burglaries dropped by one case when nine were reported last week. Eight occurred in high-volume commercial parking lots. Five were SUVs. Two stereo systems were taken along with third-row seats (from SUVs), purses, wallets, ID, laptop computers, Social Security cards, cell phones, and sunglasses. The 2010 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is now 7.0. We consistently see cases involving fitness center lots. This is an unfortunate trend that we have seen develop over the past few years. Patrons do not feel comfortable using fitness center lockers, but our statistics show that rarely is a locker targeted versus the frequent number of vehicles. Take the items with you, leave them at home, or lock them in the trunk if you absolutely must have them in the car. Vehicle thefts dropped from two to one last week. An SUV was taken from a high-volume parking lot. The 2010 weekly average in vehicle thefts is 4.5. There was no information to suggest that the vehicle stolen was equipped with any type of anti-theft device. Transportation and parts are frequently the cause of vehicle thefts, therefore if transportation is the motive, any make or model will do. Consider a steering wheel locking device that serves as a good visual deterrent.

While Gahr was struggling to move the ball downfield in the second quarter, the Vikings took a page out of the Gahr playbook and scored twice on touchdown passes as Dallas Lopez found Isaac Dan for 11 and 45-yard strikes to give the hosts the lead for good with 5:03 left in the half. On top of the turnovers, Lopez wasn’t getting much help from the offensive line as he was sacked 10 times in the game for losses totaling 68 yards.

would gain six positive yards the rest of the way. Lewis, who ran for 240 yards on 27 carries, scored the final two touchdowns of the game as Downey’s offense torched the Gahr defense for 467 yards. For Gahr, Lopez finished completing 21 passes in 38 attempts for 398 yards but never completed more than three consecutive passes at any time. “He was holding onto the ball a little bit and made some bad decisions,” Marshall said of his signal caller. “That kind of goes with throwing the interceptions. The ball should have been gone and it wasn’t gone. “You can’t really calm him down,” Marshall added. “You just hope that the game slows down enough for him so he can make better decisions. I think Downey and Warren do a good job of mixing their coverages against us.” McClellon caught eight passes for 206 yards while senior wide receiver Josh Perkins hauled in six passes for 87 yards. Gahr has now lost at least five straight games at Allen Layne Stadium and has fallen to Downey in at least eight of the last nine seasons. In addition, Gahr has also not won at Warren, the other school in the city of Downey, in at least four tries. “We don’t play well on this turf,” Marshall said. “I’m telling you, I don’t like coming here and I don’t like playing on this stuff.” The Gladiators hosted Dominguez on Oct. 21 in virtually a must-win situation. With the new makeup of the Western Division, the league is now taking two automatic qualifiers instead of three. Falling to 0-2 to begin the league slate would be tough for Gahr to overcome if it is to automatically advance to the playoffs instead of waiting to see it gets in as an at-large team. “They weren’t more physical than us,” Marshall said of Downey. “The things that can be fixed are easy to fix. If it was something like where we’re getting blown away and we’re not hurting ourselves, then you have problems.” SUBURBAN LEAGUE VOLLEYBALL

NORWALK

Continued from page 11 to an end last Friday, one of those teams would pick up their first league victory while the other would be dropped to last place. In front of a raucous crowd at Norwalk, the hosts played their best match of the season and swept the Lady Eagles 2514, 25-17, 25-23 to post their first league and overall win of the season. Norwalk also swept its city rivals for the first time since Nov. 1, 2005. “It really feels good [to win] but the biggest thing was our offensive fire finally came around,” said Norwalk first-year head coach Quoc Nguyen. “Before, we would have long rallies and we wouldn’t be able to put the ball down because we had no offense. The girls seemed like they didn’t want it as much. Today they wanted it.” For both teams to enter the match with a combined record of 1-17 was completely unheard of considering the Lady Eagles have been to the playoffs in three of the past four seasons and have at least five victories each season for well over 15 seasons. As for the Lancers, they’re trying to build off of a 3-13 campaign in 2009, their worst since 2002. Both teams were somewhat on the sloppy side in the first set as they combined for seven serving errors. Norwalk (1-8, 1-6) began to slowly pull away when senior outside hitter Joanna Macias spiked a kill, then served three straight points to give her team a 9-5 lead. Following consecutive serves into the net by both teams, sophomore middle blocker Michelle Macias served a pair of aces along with a kill from junior middle blocker Amy Siliezar as Norwalk extended its lead to 13-6. The younger Macias would have five kills in the set while senior outside hitter Kate Olegario added four kills. “Most of the time with high school teams, when you put a little bit of pressure on them, they tend to fold,” Nguyen said. “Only the really top teams are the

www.loscerritosnews.net

ones who can pass out of it.” Norwalk got out to a fast start in the second set, holding leads of 4-1, 7-3 and 10-6, the latter coming when Olegario served consecutive aces. Glenn got as close as 12-10 but down the stretch, both teams traded side outs. Through the first two sets, the visitors from the east side of the city never scored more than three straight points at any time. That would change in the third set when the Lady Eagles roared out to an 8-1 behind the serving of senior defensive specialist Gaby Lucero. But, as quick as the Lady Eagles scored six straight points, the Lancers countered that with six of their own. Junior libero Andrea Zepeda benefited from a bad set, then served three aces. Norwalk was still unable to crack Glenn’s desperate attempts for a win and still had not led in the set. Glenn, on the other hand, had leads of 19-15 and 20-17 when Michelle Macias put down back to back kills, followed by an ace from senior outside hitter Priscilla Mendoza. Another kill from Michelle Macias gave Norwalk its first lead of the set at 21-20. But the Lady Eagles refused to give up and when senior middle blocker Sharae Moten had her team-high 10th kill, the score was tied at 23-23. However, a net violation and the ninth kill from Siliezar ended the match and sent the home team into jubilation. “No matter what sport it is, no matter what our record is, we always play John Glenn like it’s a championship finals game,” Nguyen said. “Somebody has to come out with a win and we got the better of the day. Hopefully we can build off of this and use this as a way for us to know how to win.” Norwalk hadn’t had much to cheer for thus far, winning just three sets all season long entering the Glenn match. It did begin to turn the corner on Oct. 8 when the team took the first set from Bellflower before losing in four, though the Lancers scored 22 and 21 points respectively in the final two sets. All of this is coming from a team that returns just two key offensive threats from last

season. “We focused so much on passing at the beginning of the season because we’re a smaller team,” Nguyen said. “I put hitting on the back burner but now that the passing is coming along I’m focused on hitting.” After Moten’s 10 kills, the rest of the Lady Eagles recorded 22 kills with senior middle blocker Arlene Gomez chipping in with seven kills. Norwalk would be much more balanced with Olegario leading the way with 11 kills and Joanna Macias pitching in with nine kills. Of the 44 kills from Norwalk, 39 came from the big four of the Macias sisters, Olegario and Siliezar. “I understand that sophomores go backwards before they go forward because they’re so young and they can’t figure it out,” Nguyen said. “I think [Michelle] is starting to figure it out now. I think she’s starting to pick her spots perfectly and she’s putting the ball down.” Glenn will host Artesia today and Bellflower on Wednesday while the Lancers are home to defending league champion Cerritos today and to La Mirada on Wednesday. The city rematch will be on Nov. 5, the last day of the regular season. While a trip to the playoffs may not be viable for both teams, the intensity will still be there. “We want to be competitive but Mayfair and Cerritos are very strong,” Nguyen said. “I want to be competitive with La Mirada and Artesia and I’m actually looking forward to the [Artesia match]. I think we can adjust to [their style]. I’m looking to build a program; I’m not looking for this season.” SAN GABRIEL VALLEY LEAGUE VOLLEYBALL

It’s not too often that Sonny Okamoto, the 25-year veteran head coach of the Gahr girls volleyball team, can boast about his team playing a complete match. But following an important sweep over Paramount this past Tuesday night, the Gladiators are looking pretty as they enter the second round of San Gabriel Valley League action. Gahr’s 25-21, 25-16, 25-17 decision was the 20th victory over the Pirates in the past 21 meetings and pushed the Gladiators to 11-10 overall and 4-1 in the league. Since winning the league in 1998, Gahr has always fought with Paramount for third place and an automatic berth in the postseason. Its Oct. 14 sweep on the road against Warren made the match against Paramount even that more important for momen-

tum going into the final six matches of the regular season. “I thought it was more competitive last year,” Okamoto said. “When you put things into perspective the biggest this is it depends on where you’re placing at the time. Today, if we would have lost, we would have had a three-way tie for second. The key becomes, was it important to take second place alone?” “That’s who we usually battle for third place,” said senior middle blocker Erica Willig. “We hear it from our coach that’s our competition every year. This year, of course, our competition is Warren as well. We had to make sure that even though beat Warren, we didn’t say, ‘oh, we have this, we’re going to beat Paramount’.” Gahr found itself down 16-11 in the first set when Willig’s serving brought the team back, which ended with her second ace of the set. Later on, with the score tied 21-21, Willig posted consecutive kills to give the Gladiators the advantage they needed. Willig, known more for her defensive play all season, finished with eight kills and gives the team an added offensive threat to complement senior middle hitter Chelsea Heyward, sophomore outside hitter Aaliyah Heckard and sophomore middle hitter Jewelyn Sawyer. “I didn’t get to hit very much in the middle and now I’m getting some swings on the outside,” Willig said. “Sometimes I hit pretty hard and I’ll score but it’s also about playing smart for me, since I can’t jump very high.” Gahr was clinging to a 13-11 lead in the second set when a kill from Willig gave her team the serve and that’s when Heyward took over. She slammed her fourth kill to that point, then had back to back blocks. Following a Paramount timeout, Willig had another ace and Heyward had another kill to give Gahr a 1911 lead. The Pirates thought they had something going in the third set when Melissa Yepez served four straight aces to give her team a 14-13 lead. But once again, Willig’s eighth and final kill of the match ended that rally. Then with the score at 15-15, a kill from Heyward gave Willig the serve and she responded with her fourth ace of the match. But the match wasn’t sealed until senior setter Elyse Quiones scored three of her team’s final five points with quick dumps which caught the Pirates off guard. Quiones picked up half a dozen kills but had a stellar night distributing the ball to Heckard (18 kills), Heyward (12 kills), Sawyer (eight kills) and Willig. “When you’re athletic, you read things that are going to come at you,” Okamoto said. “We actually picked up balls tonight. Elyse did a great job and she finally ended the match on a dump that I needed, which I called a couple of times tonight. Everybody had to play and they all did a good job. “Tonight, I thought we did a very good job of moving the balls; controlling the balls,” Okamoto added. “We gave Aaliyah the chance to swing and score and she did her job. I thought they were a scrappy team on the other side. The thing that hurt them is they don’t have the middles like we have. Our middles actually controlled the net a little bit.” Coming into the season, Okamoto knew the bulk of his scoring would come from Heyward. What he didn’t know was that Heckard, in her first year on the varsity squad, would be as equal as a contributor. In fact, she has led the team in kills in a few matches thus far and when she hasn’t, she’s been right with Heyward for the team lead. Against Santa Monica last Saturday in the Marlborough Tournament, Heckard had 11 of Gahr’s 41 points in a two-set loss. Later in the day, she had six kills out of Gahr’s 25 points in a two-set loss to Marlborough. “The concern I have is to try to make her an all-around player,” Okamoto said.

Continued from page 5 footlights. There are stunts that involve juggling and balancing tricks that raise pulses including one heady segment that involved drawers and corn liquor jugs stacked four high. Charlotte Greenblatt balanced on four raised lozenges with strength that would be admired in any weight room and also performed as a ballerina on a raised platform. Elena Day was the clown in residence and several of her routines brought genuine horselaughs and added much needed comic relief after spine-tingling acrobatics. She also ventured into the crowd and took a poor unsuspecting civilian up on stage used him as a prop, albeit goodnaturedly. Those same acrobatics formed the core of the show and were absolutely wonderful throughout. The really great ingredient to the carefree aerial hi-jinks was the obvious joy of the performers including Timber Brown, Kerren McKenna and Lindsey Orton-Hines who literally and figuratively made it look easy. I can assure you it was not when you consider some of these maneuvers took place twenty or thirty feet above the stage and without any safety apparatus in sight. They bounded repeatedly off of trampolines centered on ore carts, climbed ropes to the ceiling using mostly their feet and swung with precision near the top of the stage. T he highlight of the acrobatics was the duel wonders of an upside down bicycle control of a moving trapeze that swung young ladies out over the orchestra seats where the crowd stared upward with mouths agape.

Metro’s 30/10 Initiative will accelerate construction of several transportation projects scheduled to be built over three decades. Projects to be fast-tracked include: Regional Connector Transit Corridor > The project would create a two-mile transit link through downtown LA between the Metro Gold, Blue and Expo lines. > Three light rail alternatives considered – a combination of underground and at-grade segments; underground with an at-grade crossing at 1st and Alameda; fully underground and traveling under the 1st and Alameda intersection. > The future direction of the projects will be decided at the October Metro Board of Directors meeting. Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 > Metro is studying two light rail transit alternatives to extend the Metro Gold Line farther east from the Atlantic Station in East LA. > Two routes being explored are from Atlantic Boulevard east along either the Pomona Freeway or Washington Bouvelard. West Santa Ana Transit Corridor > The project utilizes a portion of an abandoned 20-mile rail right-of-way between Paramount and Santa Ana. > Alternatives to be evaluated include bus rapid transit, light rail, commuter rail and highspeed rail.

“I don’t have her passing in the game yet, but I’m working on that slowly so she can play all the way around the whole time. For Aaliyah to be where she’s at, Elyse has to giver hittable balls and Elyse is doing that a lot better than the very beginning of the year.” Gahr hosted league leading Downey on Oct. 21 and will visit the league’s two bottom feeders, Dominguez and Lynwood, on Tuesday and Thursday respectively. The rematch with Paramount will be on Nov. 4 on the road and could, once again, decide third place. When Gahr swept Warren, it was just the fourth win on Warren’s court in the past 13 meetings and snapped a five-match losing streak to the Bears. In the past 25 meetings, Gahr has defeated Warren eight times. “I think that was really important because it gave us some confidence,” Willig said of the win at Warren. “I think our team has two different levels of confidence.” “Playoffs feel good,” Okamoto said. “I’m just comfortable with getting to the playoffs. I told the girls not to be satisfied [with second place]. If you’re satisfied, then things won’t happen to the best of their knowledge.”
