VALLEY CHRISTIAN CIF-SS DIVISION IV VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONS! BY LOREN KOPFF Everyone loves an underdog and once again, there’s reason to love the 2019 Valley Christian High girls volleyball team. Showing no fear against Norco High, the CIF-Southern Section’s

Division 4 top-seeded team, the Lady Defenders shrugged that off to capture the program’s fourth divisional championship. V.C. defeated the Cougars 25-21, 14-25, 25-13, 25-21 last Saturday morning at Cerritos College. The last time the

school had won a girls volleyball title was in 1998 when that team went a sparking 33-0 and were crowned USA Today National Champions. It was the third of three straight CIF champion-

The Hawaiian Gardens City Council debated and will consider terminating its trash hauling contract with Montebello-based Commercial Waste Services at their next meeting. A voluminous staff report that deemed Commercial in default “for numerous material breaches including monetary and non-monetary” apparently was not enough for the City Council to take action at their regular meeting this past Tuesday. The City Staff report cited the most significant defaults to be: inaccurate reporting to the City regarding its waste collection and diversion; continual misrepresentations and/or omissions to the City, including the failure to purchase a new clean air fleet to service the City and the failure to obtain the requisite insurance; and non-compliance with California laws, including AB 939, AB 1826, and AB 341.

GREATER DOWNEY REALTY BOARD THREATENED LAWSUIT TO ALLOW NO FAULT EVICTIONS BY BRIAN HEWS Assembly Bill 1482, signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom, will impose statewide rate control and prohibit no-fault evictions come Jan. 1. The rent cap bill essentially makes rent control the law of the land in California. There is only one other state in the country doing this- Oregon. Under the law, for the next decade landlords can only raise rents for an existing tenant by 5% after inflation. In addition, it will be harder for a landlord to kick a tenant out, mandating that landlords must

have a legitimate reason for eviction. A few exception exist, the rent cap will initially only apply to apartments built before 2004, it would also exempt single-family homes and duplexes where the owner lives in one of the units. Despite the exceptions, unscrupulous landlords all over the state are trying to get ahead of the law by callously evicting tenantswithout cause-to proactively raise the rent. And Downey Councilman Sean Ashton is trying to do something about it in his city. Ashton is asking the City

AB 939, also known as the Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989, compels all California municipalities to divert 50% of the waste from landfills, whether through reduction, recycling or other approved means. AB 341 requires mandatory multi-family and commercial recycling programs; the purpose of this law is to support an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. AB 1826 requires businesses to recycle their organic waste, depending on the amount of waste they generate per week.

LAKEWOOD COUNCIL PLACES 3/4 CENT SALES TAX ON MARCH 2020 BALLOT BY BRIAN HEWS Citing Sacramento as the cause of the City’s revenue problem, the Lakewood City Council voted to place a 3/4 cent sales tax on the 2020 ballot at this past Tuesday’s regular City Council meeting. City officials stated that the State of California has taken over $30 million in local property tax dollars from Lakewood over the past eight years, and will continue to take approximately $2 million every year on into the future. The take-away has resulted in Lakewood having to make significant budget cuts over the past two years, including to public safety as well as parks and facility maintenance in order to maintain a balanced budget. The sales tax measure would raise approximately $10 million a year, an amount that

OSAMA BIN LADEN RAID EXHIBIT AT NEW YORK'S 9/11 MUSEUM BY TAMMYE MCDUFF The 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York opens a new exhibit November 15, 2019 that focuses on the search for and ultimate killing of Osama bin Laden. The U.S. government has declassified documents and artifacts that will be part of a new exhibit about the decade long search for the former al-Qaeda leader. The exhibit includes a uniform shirt worn by one of the Navy SEAL Team 6 members during the raid of bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan, a coin donated by a CIA operative who pursued him, and a brick from bin Laden’s compound. It also features interviews by former President Barrack Obama, intelligence officials and some of the Navy SEALS who stormed the bin Laden’s compound in 2011. “There was a lot of cheering going on when we heard he was gone,” said Mark Kelton, former head of counter intelligence at the CIA National Clandestine Service [NCS], “I always get the question when I talk about this, and I don’t talk about it very much. ‘Why did it take so long for us to find him?’ The simple answer is that he was hiding in very remote areas. It is very hard to find a single individual when they could be hiding anywhere in the world.” Mary Galligan is the FBI agent who supervised the 9/11 investigation and has been with the agency for 25 years. “I think visitors will be immersed in this

because they think they know the story. They have read the books, they have seen the movies, but this exhibit is from the view of the intelligence analysts. How long and how hard it really was to find Osama bin Laden.” Galligan said that she hopes visitors leave the exhibit with an appreciation and recognition that this war still goes on. As supervisor over the investigation she added, “I worked with really bright and wonderful people, trying to figure out what really happened, and to make sure it didn’t happen again.” The artifacts and evidence, up until now have only been viewed by the intelligence community. What visitors will hear are the personal stories of the analysts, the six people that were part of the raid talking about what that mission was actually like and stories from their families as well. Photos show the scenes of the search, including caves and the mountain range in Afghanistan where bin Laden was believed to be hiding, under protection of the Taliban, which issued al-Qaida members passports allowing them to move from place to place freely. The exhibit also addresses the many different ways they uutilized to identify the compound, following the couriers and how they determined whether the ‘pacer’ was actually following bin Laden. Maureen Santora, whose son Christopher Santora died while running toward one of the burning trade center towers that collapsed, thanked Kelton in a long tearful embrace saying “this is the completion of a tale in history – the head of the snake is dead.”

LOCATION ESTABLISHED FOR BELLFLOWER HOMELESS SHELTER

THE PROPOSED temporary shelter at 8833 Cedar Street in Bellflower. BY BRIAN HEWS Last week, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, led by Chair Janice Hahn, committed $1.5 million to fund a new 50-bed shelter in the City of Bellflower. The City has indicated that the shelter will be located at 8833 Cedar Street, just west of Lakewood Blvd. and that they are working with several non-profit service providers to make certain the shelter is run as efficiently and effectively as possible. Of the $1.5 million, $700,000 will come from Supervisor Hahn’s Fourth District Provisional Financing funds. The additional funding will be provided by the LA County Department of Health Services. “The leaders of the City of Bell-

flower are stepping up and have a plan to shelter their fair share of the homeless population,” said Supervisor Janice Hahn. “I have always said – if you are a city leader and you identify a site for a shelter or supportive housing in your city, my colleagues and I are more than willing to put County resources behind it to make it happen.” “Opening a shelter in Bellflower is the right thing to do and it is the compassionate thing to do,” said Bellflower Mayor Sonny Santa Ines, who testified in support of the funding motion at the board meeting. “This is a win-win solution that will allow us to shelter 50 of Bellflower’s homeless population so we can get these individuals off the streets and provide connect them with services that they need.”

OP/ED: LA County Supervisors Fighting Sheriff Villanueva Instead of Helping Him BY ALBERT ROBLES One year ago, our new Sheriff Alex Villanueva, the 33rd LA County Sheriff, was relatively unknown. But on November 6, 2018, he pulled off the biggest surprise in LA County election history by becoming the first person ever to defeat an incumbent Sheriff. Like all the major news outlets and every elected official in LA County (with the exception of three), I too had endorsed the incumbent. However, unlike the LA County Board of Supervisors, I gave Sheriff Alex Villanueva a chance, and one-year later, as the Mayor of the largest contract City with the Sheriff’s Department, I believe Sheriff Alex Villanueva is doing a good job, especially on his number one priority – our public safety. For your consideration here are some of his first-year accomplishments: Firstly, the morale among the Sheriff’s deputies throughout LA County, especially the morale of those deputies on the frontline is at an all-time high by any measure; including the one measure that counts the most, simply asking them as I have done. Secondly, our Sheriff has shown strong independent leadership, e.g., he promptly fired a deputy for filing a false report. The deputy was terminated, and not put on an extended vacation, i.e., paid-leave or admin-leave. The deputy was actually fired within a week of his false report. I have never seen any top LA County official move so quickly, no matter how egregious the act. Thirdly, our Sheriff has increased transparency at the Sheriff’s Department by lifting the gag-rule so deputies and

management must now testify on all matters, including civil service and administrative arbitration hearings. Additionally, he removed politics and favoritism as the main consideration for getting promoted to the coveted position of Station Captain, and for the first time ever these prospective Captains are now promoted with input from the Cities the Captains will serve. Fourthly, our Sheriff has pursued a community outreach effort that is second-to-none. He has scheduled numerous community meetings throughout LA County (almost 30) to personally answer questions directly from residents, local businesses, mayors, and councilmembers – something no previous Sheriff has ever done. Fifthly, our Sheriff is finally implementing body-cameras at one of the largest law enforcement agencies in the Country, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Every previous Sheriff dragged their feet and delayed implementation of body-cameras by asking for more studies, and causing great distress for us public servants whom from the public demanded body-cameras. Sheriff Villanueva delivered where others stalled. As he has said, “these body-cameras on deputies are long overdue and will help secure the fair and impartial treatment of all persons.” The above facts, coupled with Sheriff Villanueva delivering on his top priority – our public safety – everyone should accordingly conclude that he indeed had a good first-year, because LA County crime statistics show a 7% drop, making this year the safest in a generation. This reduction in crime includes Carson, where data shows an even greater drop in crime that makes Carson among the safest cities in LA County. Villanueva’s first-year, however, has not been perfect (but who’s is?), and while criticism for errors is fine, what the LA County Board of Supervisors has done to try to undermine Sheriff Villanueva is unfair and unsafe. For the LA County Board of Supervisors (Board) to try to blame Sheriff Villanueva for matters that pre-date him such as the crisis at the Men’s LA County Central Jail and the pre-existing Sheriff’s Department budget overruns is, simply put, nothing but an attack job. The crisis at the Men’s LA County Central Jail has existed for decades and the fault is squarely that of the Board as they have repeatedly failed to address the problem. The Board prefers the politically easier route of kicking the can down the road by creating commissions, task forces or blueribbon panels full of their political friends and allies.

The fact of the matter is this crisis is 100% the doing of the Board as they have the ultimate responsibility for the LA County Jail System. And the Board has repeatedly failed to address this issue and instead chosen to postpone, delay and study it to death – sadly to the literal death of some innocent inmates. It is clear to even the most casual observer that the Board cares more about “pretending” to do something, rather than actually doing something. As the “pretending” seems to be catching-up, their “Plan B” is to blame all the jail problems on the brand new Sheriff whom they did not support for election in the first place. What a total cop out-no pun intended. This is one of the ultimate duplicitous claims ever made by the Board, to try to lay the blame for the shortcomings at the Men’s LA County Central Jail on the new Sheriff – who again has only been in office for one full year. Moreover, the Board of Supervisors a couple of months ago, after spending millions and millions of public dollars to study, re-study, design, re-design, plan and yes re-plan for the construction of a replacement facility for the Men’s LA County Central Jail that would finally properly address the mentally ill inmate population, as should have happened decades ago, has instead inexplicably yet again chosen to postpone and delay. Even though this replacement plan for the troubled Men’s LA County Central Jail had zero input from our new Sherriff, to his credit our new Sheriff recommended proceeding with the destruction and replacement of the Men’s LA County Central Jail; thus, joining the many experts both hired by the Board as well as independent experts. Nevertheless, the Board of Supervisors ignored this overwhelming expert advice and decided to leave the Men’s LA County Central Jail as is and unaddressed. What is more, in an attempt of a con worse than a game of three-card monte, the Board tried to shift the blame for this latest delay to the new Sheriff. While they may have done this to try to embarrass the new Sheriff, what they actually did was embarrass themselves. Our Sheriff once again showed strong leadership in speaking the truth to the Board, and I applaud him for standing up to the so-called “Five Kings” and showing us that “the King (and Queens) have no clothes.” The situation at the Men’s LA County Central Jail is only one example of the Board being more motivated by politics than the facts in dealing with the new

Sheriff. A few weeks ago, the Board tried to control our Sheriff (who speaks truth to power and does not kowtow) by freezing the Sheriff’s Department budget. The pretext for this despicable action reaches a new height of political hypocrisy as the Board actually attempted to justify their action by faulting Sheriff Villanueva for not cutting services as deputies worked overtime to keep us safe. This argument strains all credulity because as reported by all major news outlets, this budget deficit is not the new Sherriff’s doing and existed before he took the helm one-year ago. Besides, as everyone knows, the number one factor of the budget overrun is attributed to the overtime pay to deputies CROSSING due to the severe understaffing that Sheriff Villanueva inherited. So freezing the Sheriff’s Department budget makes as much sense as the Board “cutting off their nose to spite their face,” except it is the residents and businesses that will suffer from the “cutting.” The Board must think that LA County residents don’t care about public safety because like them we also have our own publicly paid for individual Sheriff deputy chaperon and fly in-and-out of events in helicopters at public expense just like them. Enough is enough. The Board must stop fighting with Sheriff Alex Villanueva, and work together so that the progress made in reducing crime does not begin to reverse as the Board tries to score political points at our expense. In addition to the above factors, there are many more positive reasons than not to congratulate Sheriff Villanueva and begin to work with him. For example, he has appointed more women, minorities and members of the LGBTQ community to the highest ranks in the Sheriff’s Department than ever before; there is less animus between residents and the Sheriff’s Department; he has had countless events with youth that reduces crime before it even begins, etc. The fact is he is our Sheriff now, and I encourage the Board to join me and the millions of LA County residents who are safer, and congratulate Sheriff Alex Villanueva on his one-year anniversary. Thank you Sheriff Alex Villanueva for keeping us safe, and thank you for your 33-years of service to the Los Angeles County Sheriffs’ Department. Albert Robles is the Mayor of Carson, the largest LA County City served by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

LOCAL CHURCH SERVES FOOD FREE TO OVER 500 AT DOWNEY HARVEST FESTIVAL BY TAMMYE MCDUFF After an extended time away from City Council, Mayor Rick Rodriguez was back in full form and ready to gift the Mayors Servant Heart Award to several Downey residents. “Pastor Alex Vargas truly deserves the Mayors Servant Heart Award,” said Rodriguez “it doesn’t matter what time of day he is called, Alex is always there to listen and to serve.” Vargas’s church served food to over 500 people for free at the Harvest Festival held at The Lord’s Grace Church. “This award is in recognition of your selfless dedication in always going above and beyond for others and your heartfelt efforts to help make Downey a better place. Pastor Vargas recently had over 500 people come out to his church to learn how to be foster parents; you truly honor our city,” said Rodriguez. Vargas has been a minister in the city for over ten years. After seeing so many people struggling and in need of help, he left a lucrative career to pursue his calling into the ministry. “I grew up in a family where we struggled, so I know what it is like to not have the little things you need every day. I also know what it is like to have someone reach out to help. My wife and I deal with families that are trying to make ends meet. We are blessed to live in this city, and we want to help others.” Along with Pastor Vargas, the award was also given to the Frase Family, the first family unit to receive the Mayors Servant Award. Carol Roland the coordinator for

Keep Downey Beautiful said “It gives me great pleasure to give this award to the Frase Family for their exceptional service.” Roland complimented the family saying that they have been working with Keep Downey Beautiful Program, when son Daniel, a student at Downey High School in 2007 attended his first clean up. Shortly after that in 2008 his mother and father joined the clean up and brother Jonathan occasionally joins in. “This family comes to about 98 percent of all the Keep Downey Beautiful cleanups,” said Roland, “they either come as a family or one at a time, but someone is always there. They have collected literally hundreds of pounds of trash from city streets, parking lots, parks, or the railroads,” The family helps to set up and clean up, staying until every volunteer has gone home or been picked up. The Frase’s also volunteer for the pumpkin patch activities; Taste of Downey; help sort toys; and clean up after the parade since 2007. “You are witnessing a family that gives their time to help our program and our city look so good!” added Roland.

MEMORIALCARE BREAST CENTER OPENS IN LOS ALAMITOS STAFF REPORT

RIBBON CUTTING: Tony DeMarco (center), director, Rossmoor Community Services District, helps MemorialCare Breast Center physicians and employees officially open the new MemorialCare Breast Center in Los Alamitos.

On Saturday, Nov. 2, the MemorialCare Breast Center in Los Alamitos officially opened for appointments with the help of Tony DeMarco, director, Rossmoor Community Services District. Located near the intersection of Los Alamitos Blvd. and Katella Ave. The new breast center offers a convenient breast imaging satellite location for residents of North Orange County. The easily accessible location features a spalike environment and the latest advanced technology, as well as expert all-female, sub-specialized breast radiologists. “Surprisingly few mammograms are read by sub-specialized breast radiologists,” says Angela Sie, M.D., medical director, breast imaging, MemorialCare Breast Center, Long Beach Medical Center. “The MemorialCare Breast Centers are the exception. At all of our locations, fellowship-trained, breast radiologists review every exam. We are uniquely trained in breast imaging. We don’t read general radiology, only breast images, and we feel this is important when reviewing images that may result in a cancer diagnosis.” To kick off the opening of the new center, community members were invited to schedule mammogram appointments,

while enjoying massages, appetizers and a tour. Attendees were able to view the latest 3D mammography, breast ultrasound and bone densitometry machines. The center is designed to create a spalike atmosphere, including plush robes, spa music and aromatherapy diffusers, to lessen any anxieties women may have of their upcoming test. In addition to touring the location, the breast radiologists met potential patients and discussed the importance of screening mammograms. “We are honored to be opening our new location in the Rossmoor and Los Alamitos communities,” says Dr. Sie. “We are dedicated to finding small, treatable breast cancers, and one way we do that is by encouraging women to have annual screening mammograms. By opening this new satellite center, our goal is to make mammograms more convenient for the community while still providing the highest Memorialcare standard that people know and expect.” The MemorialCare Breast Center in Los Alamitos offers 3D digital mammography, breast ultrasound and bone densitometry for diagnosing osteoporosis. Appointments are now being accepted for dates beyond Monday, Dec. 2.

ABCUSD NEWS SERVICES Keeping students healthy at school is a priority at the ABC Unified School District.

DOWNEY

Continued from page 1 Council, at tonight’s meeting, to discuss an emergency ordinance that would prohibit landlords from evicting tenants without cause, and, “give direction prohibiting no-fault evictions to protect tenants until Jan. 1, 2020, when AB 1482 takes effect.” Ashton proposed the discussion at the council meeting three weeks ago, two days later he came under fire from the Greater Downey Association of Realtors (DAOR). Amid the flurry of no fault evictions, the DAOR and its President Dan Navarez, who’s works out of an office in Anaheim, threatened a lawsuit. In a letter to Downey Mayor Rick Rodriguez, Nevarez said they oppose the bill and basically threatened the City. [Passing the emergency ordinance] “will force us to take legal action and seek an injunction,” Nevarez wrote. Several cities have passed an urgency ordinance similar to what Ashton proposed, including Bell Gardens, but that did not matter to Nevarez. “The City Council…. will join us in waiting until January 1, 2020 when AB

Sieu. “It’s important to make sure students don’t miss time in the classroom, so helping them and their families stay well is critical.” Nationally, nearly 22 million school days are lost each year from the cold and flu. The flu also causes more hospitalizations for young children that any other vaccine-preventable disease. Having the flu impacts families as well, with parents having to stay home to take care of sick children or exposing other children in the home to the flu.

1482 goes into effect, rather than making any attempt to implement new ordinances that would place moratoriums on evictions,” Nevarez wrote. It is unclear what rights Nevarez is referring to, other than the rights of greedy landlords. A recent Zillow report found that last year only about 7 percent of properties in the state had an increase larger than 5 percent. An urgency ordinance requires a “super-majority,” meaning four of the five council members must vote in approval of the ordinance for it to take immediate effect. The proposal by Ashton could trigger recusals on the Council; Mayor Rick Rodriguez will certainly recuse himself. Ashton told HMG-LCCN, “I firmly believe I am on the right side of this, many residents have told me, and council members, about nightmares with their landlords abusing the no-fault eviction loophole, something should be done, let’s at least start a conversation.” At the meeting the council voted to have the emergency ordinance drawn up to be heard at their next council meeting on Wednesday November 20.

DOWNEY AMBULANCE DRIVER RECOGNIZED FOR BRAVERY

BENEFITS OF COPPER REPIPING: R R R R R R R

While commuting to work on October 30, 2019 at 4:30 am, Ambulance Coordinator Alex Guerra drove up on a major car accident on the 210 Freeway in Rancho Cucamonga. The accident involved numerous vehicles, including a California Correctional van, transporting inmates. The van had sustained major damage. Prior to first responder’s arrival Guerra stopped and rendered immediate medical aid. Chief Mark Gillaspie told the crowd that many people continued to drive by, but Guerra stopped out of his good ethics and professional manner in order to provide assistance. For that reason, the November Downey’s Finest Award went to Carlos Guerra for his heroic efforts that morning. “There were injured correctional officers trapped in the van,” continued Gillaspie,”upon identifying the urgency of

the situation and the injuries, Guerra retrieved his personal first aid bag from his vehicle to treat the injured on scene.” After responders arrived, Guerra proceeded to work. Fire Administration was notified by Captain Buck of the San Bernardino County Fire Department, who took time to notify Downey Fire Officials, expressing how impressed and appreciative he was with Guerra’s actions. “Carlos is a fine example of the excellence Downey represents,” said Mayor Rick Rodriguez, “stepping forward to selflessly serve others, his actions are a reminder that our mission as public servants is not limited to ‘only on duty’ actions.” Gillaspie added “As a fire department employee, I have been here for over 30 years and our firefighters do an incredible job, I am very proud of them. We are grateful of what you did that morning, but more importantly of who you are all the time. Thank you for being one of Downey’s finest.”

CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION DIVISION 4 GIRLS VOLLEYBALL FINALS

FROM PAGE 1: GONZALES, QUINLAN POWER UNDERDOG VALLEY CHRISTIAN TO UPSET WIN AGAINST TOP-SEEDED NORCO ships V.C. won in the late 1990s. “It’s an unbelievable feeling,” said V.C. head coach Jeff Ornee. “I told my girls to enjoy every moment of it because they deserved it and that they worked so hard just to even get here. We battled through some tough teams, but the fact that we’re here and we’re coming home as champions is a great, great feeling.” Junior middle blocker Dakota Quinlan, who transferred from Bishop Montgomery High, said she wasn’t thinking of winning a divisional championship until the Lady Defenders knocked off St. Anthony High in the quarterfinals. She felt the Saints were their biggest competition in the postseason and at that point, knew V.C. had the talent to win the Division 4 title. “I think it’s the best feeling ever,” Quinlan said. “I [transferred] for the coach and a better coaching staff and I definitely think I came to a better team. We were the underdogs, but that’s definitely the best feeling to have because you come in with a stronger mentality.” Both teams played a tight first set until a kill from senior opposite hitter Megan Bouma put the Lady Defenders up for good at 9-8. The lead would increase to 14-9 and 20-13 before Norco, who had entered the match with one loss on the season and had fallen in nine sets, scored four straight points. Later, the Cougars staved off set point three times before junior outside hitter Rachel Gonzales ended their rally. “I mentioned that to the team all year [that] we seem to play better against tougher competition,” Ornee said. “So, the better the team we’re up against, the harder we play. So, I told them, and I didn’t lie to them. They’re a good team; they have a good record, 22-1. They didn’t get challenged all year. They were sweeping through teams, even through CIF they were sweeping through teams. They made it look easy, so we knew we were going to be the underdogs once again and I told my girls just thrive in that underdog role.” The early moments of the second set were tight again until Aubren Billen served three straight points to give her team a 7-4 lead it would not relinquish. But V.C. would storm back early in the third set and the serving of Bouma propelled the Lady Defenders to the rout in the third set, and momentum for the fourth set. Bouma reeled off seven straight points to give V.C. a commanding 8-0 lead. Junior middle blocker Ashlyn Couch, who

had three kills in the first two sets combined, had three kills as part of those eight points. The Cougars never scored more than three straight points in the set and got as close as five points. Later in the set, junior setter Rachel Lim served three straight points and Gonzales ended the set with three in a row, including an ace. “I think it definitely helped, but I think our energy is what really helped us and how we actually bonded as a team that game,” Couch said of Bouma’s serving. “Game two was really sloppy for both sides, honestly, but we made a lot of mental mistakes, and the biggest thing I took away was we weren’t serving tough enough,” Ornee said. “If we were going to beat this team, we had to serve tough, and I told the girls don’t be scared to miss. Megan’s serving was huge, Rachel had a couple of runs that were big. Once they started getting on it, it made a difference.” Quinlan said she felt those eight points to begin the set was the turning point and it made the team go to another level. Bouma and V.C. would jump out to a 4-2 lead in the fourth set before Jenny Carranza reeled off four consecutive points, the last two on aces, to give Norco a 7-4 advantage. The Lady Defenders wouldn’t lead again until Bouma’s eighth kill made it 12-11. It was the second of five straight points served by senior libero Mia DeKraker, who had an ace during that stretch. Both teams would trade points until Norco got to within a point at 18-17. In fact, it would trail by a point two more times before Bouma had the last of her nine kills, then served the final two points of the match. “It means a lot, especially since we didn’t win league this year,” Ornee said. “Our league is tough; Village [Christian] was a tough competition for us this year and they pushed us and challenged us. That was another of those underdog matches. But to win this, to win CIF… that’s all I could dream of for this season, and the girls put in the work and earned it.” “All we had to do was talk to each other and make sure that we’re better,” Quinlan said. “We just kept thinking that we’re the better team and that’s what is going to happen.” Couch led the Lady Defenders with 12 kills while Gonzales had 11 kills and Quinlan nine kills. Lim had 38 assists while Gonzales was stellar on defense with 19 digs, followed by 13 from DeKraker and

11 each from Couch and Lim. Also contributing at a key moment in the fourth set was senior middle blocker Olivia Vande Vegte, whose fourth and final kill of the match started those seven straight points served by DeKraker. “I’ve been battling with Olivia,” Ornee said. “Olivia doesn’t like to make mistakes. So, if she doesn’t think it’s a great set, she’ll tip it. And I told her we’re not going to win championships with tips. We’ve got to swing. And I think that kind of flipped the switch in her head and she started hitting at everything. She’s got power on her swing. “Ashlyn was massive too,” he added. “Her swings on the outside were big, siding us out and getting us back to the serving line.” “Our coach asks us questions [before the season] and makes us write down our goals for the season,” Couch said. “Our goal was to win league, but we didn’t quite get that. But we made it to CIF and that was our next goal. We won CIF and I’m so proud of the girls. Yes, we were

taking about CIF at the beginning of the year.” The Lady Defenders, ranked sixth in the division, would then be seeded 15th in Division 2 of the CIF-State Southern California Regional Championships where they travelled to Chula Vista to face Eastlake High this past Tuesday. V.C.’s season would come to an end as it was swept 26-24, 25-21, 25-14 to conclude the campaign at 25-9 “It’s been a journey,” Couch said. “We really wanted this, and we got it and we accomplished our goal that we had all season. It was a crazy feeling; we wanted it so bad. “I love them; I can’t even explain,” Couch later said. “They’re crazy good and without them, we actually, probably wouldn’t go as far. But Dakota came on this team and she killed it and we knew this was going to be a good season for us when she came on the team. Megan really came out with the energy. We all really wanted this win.”

CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION DIVISION 4 GIRLS TENNIS PLAYOFFS

WHITNEY RALLIES LATE WITH THEIR DOUBLES TO STUN FOURTH-SEEDED HACIENDA HEIGHTS WILSON BY LOREN KOPFF The 2019 Whitney High girls tennis season can be summed up in one big story with many interesting chapters, It started with head coach Eli Alejo taking over the team at the end of July, followed by a win over Cerritos High, eventually claiming a share of the 605 League title. Another chapter was written when the Lady Wildcats moved to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in school history and continued with a remarkable 10-8 victory over vising Hacienda Heights Wilson High this past Monday in the CIF-Southern Section Division 4 quarterfinals. Whitney, the fifth-seeded team in the division, was down 8-7 before its three doubles’ teams picked up victories to upset the fourthseeded visiting Wildcats 10-8. “When I first started hearing about Whitney needing a coach, and I found out from word of mouth that they had been practicing on their own without a coach, and they’re doing it from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. all summer, I said, ‘what a blessing for me’,” Alejo said. “I’m the lucky one to be hired as a coach.” First, the tandem of freshman Kate Chiang and junior Maya Alvarez-Harmon knocked off Kristin Sung and Carol

Li 6-3. Then seniors Audrey Guang and Sumedha Polu gave Whitney its first lead by an easy 6-2 win over Natalie Wu and Ivy Liang. But the set of the entire match, which was the last one, was filled with drama and turning points. With no margin for error because had Wilson won to force the 9-9 tie, it would have won the match based on total points. Whitney was trailing Wilson by nine points entering the final set. So, juniors Jennifer Tanurdjaja and Danielle Louie edged Mireya Castillo and Monze Meraz-Lerma 7-6 (7-4). The Whitney duo was down 6-5 and fought off two match points before forcing the tiebreaker. There, Whitney was down 1-0 before getting the next three points and never looked back. “I’m very proud of my No. 2 doubles, that they really showed what they’re really made of,” Alejo said. “

“At that point, I had a feeling it was going to be the game that decided [the match],” Louie said. “But both my partner and I don’t think about anything. [We] just focused on the game and I think that mindset really helped us push through. At that point, we weren’t thinking about hitting winners. We were just trying to return the ball because people say tennis is a game of errors. So, we were like, let the other team be the one to make the error while we keep going strong against that team.” Whitney, who had gone 1-6 in the playoffs since 2005, struggled in singles, winning four of the nine sets. Half of those wins came from the team’s top singles player, sophomore Camille Dang, who posted 6-0 wins over Chloe Wu and Isabella Lin after falling to Wilson’s top singles player, Arianna Audelo 6-2. Audelo is ranked 40th in the state by the

United States Tennis Association. Senior Joyce Yuan, Whitney’s No. 2, rallied from a 3-2 deficit to defeat Lin 6-4 and Wu, the No. 3 player, got out to a 3-1 lead and defeated Lin 6-3. Whitney’s top doubles team of Guang and Polu also defeated Sung/Li 7-5 to tie the match at 3-3, then later breezed to a 6-2 win over Castillo/Meraz-Lerma to tie the match at 6-6. Chiang/Alvarez-Harmon also picked up a 6-3 win over Castillo/Meraz-Lerma for Whitney’s first win of the match. “It has happened before that towards the last round, my three doubles will get better towards the end, and I was relying on that,” Alejo said. “We did well.” Whitney (17-5) would see its dream season come to an end in the semifinals this past Wednesday as it fell to Westridge High 12-6. “It was just us growing together and we learned from our losses,” Alejo said of the season. “It’s really shocking, but I think instead of us being able to get in [the semifinals], it’s really more happiness that we get to continue the tennis season with everyone because we really bonded this year,” Louie said. “So, it’s a really great experience to be able to continue to play tennis with the whole team.”

CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION DIVISION 12 FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS

ARTESIA’S UPSET BID AGAINST MORENO VALLEY FADES IN FINAL HALF OF FOURTH QUARTER BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER

MORENO VALLEY-The final score may show that Artesia High fell to Moreno Valley High 41-14 in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 12 first round playoffs last Friday night at Rooney Field. But the final score is not indicative of how close the Pioneers played the third seeded team in the division. Artesia trailed the Vikings 21-14 with 7:09 left to play and had the ball after its defense forced a three and out. But the second place representatives out of the 605 League gained four yards on six plays and had to punt. After that, Moreno Valley scored on two straight long touchdown runs and Leroy Louis returned an interception back for a touchdown to round out the scoring. “They’re a resilient group and that’s kind of what we saw here,” said Artesia head coach Don Olmstead of his team. “They lose a game, [then] they kind of bounce back. [They] lose a tough game, [then] win a tough game. But they’re really resilient and that’s probably what we’re going to remember most about this group. “A lot of them contributed last year to the CIF finals and this year, the younger guys came in and played well,” he continued. “But experience kind of takes over in the games late that we had last year when we won the Rio Hondo [Prep] game late. We won the Ramona game; kind of bounced back and beat them. This time, we didn’t get it done.” The game began with Moreno Valley’s Elijah Kelsey returning the game’s opening kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown. It would remain 7-0 until Kelsey scored on a 17-yard run with 20.1 seconds left in the first quarter. The Pioneers

would get on the board with 4:24 left in the first half when sophomore quarterback K’Len Williams threw a 29-yard strike to senior wide receiver Grant Ross. But all night long, Artesia was unable to get its young offense going. Williams and senior quarterback Tyler Kemp combined to go five of 10 for 99 yards in the first half while the rushing game would be grounded, picking up seven yards on 16 carries. “I thought our defense played great all night,” Olmstead said. “The 41 points does not dictate how the game went. It was 21, then it got to 28 on a long run. Then it ballooned with the two picks and the long run and it’s kind of over. [Senior linebackers] Eduardo [Ramos-Zuniga] and Malek [Kangas] played great in the middle. Our D-line played great; they couldn’t run anything between the tackles. That’s why they tried to get outside, and they did. “They have two great running backs that are fast that are probably going to be big time recruits,” he continued. “One is a sophomore, so he’s going to be pretty good for the next couple of years. That’s kind of what happens. It looked like a group with a bunch of seniors playing against a group with a bunch of sophomores and juniors. We just didn’t have the experience to be able to do more stuff that we wanted to do.”

Moreno Valley had the ball for just over five minutes in the second quarter and had drives end with a fumble and two punts. Meanwhile, the Vikings extended their lead to 21-7 with 4:15 remaining in the third quarter when Kelsey bolted for a 71-yard run. Williams would make the game closer with a one-yard run almost three minutes into the fourth quarter. But the Pioneers gained 18 yards in the final stanza on 21 plays and finished the game with 157 yards. Sophomore running back Tyler Miller had 50 hard yards on 13 carries while Williams, who was sacked seven times, gained 12 yards on 16 carries and completed four second half passes for zero yards. “We couldn’t break anybody loose,” Olmstead said. “We kind of bet on the fact that we’re going to get somebody loose at some point and see if he can take it all the way. Tyler had a couple of good runs. But we just couldn’t sustain it the whole game. That’s not what we do; you never see us throw the ball that much. “We were trying to run some stuff that we hadn’t run a lot that was there that we ran earlier in the year,” Olmstead later said of the fourth quarter. “Like I said, experience kind of takes over. Last year with Heder [Gladden] and Travys [Davis], we could call something in game

one and they would know when to run it. We’re just not there yet. We have a 14year old quarterback and a 14-year old running back, and that’s kind of tough.” Artesia finished its up and down season at 4-7. The Pioneers lost two in a row early in the season, scoring a combined 27 points, then knocked off Westminster High 21-7 before going on a three-game skid in which they reached double figures once. But the team rebounded in league play, scoring 47 points against Cerritos High and 61 points against Pioneer High in the regular season finale. The lone league blemish came against John Glenn High, a 47-28 setback. “We challenged them after the Glenn game,” Olmstead said. “The Glenn game I thought we didn’t play well across the board. Offense, defense, special teams… we got beat. So, we challenged them a little bit going into the Pioneer week and the kids bounced back.”

TRASH

Continued from page 1 AB 1826 also requires that cities implement an organic waste recycling program to divert organic green waste generated by multi-family buildings. The City stated that staff has attempted to work with CWS to cure the breaches and defaults and has provided CWS with numerous Notices of Default from March 25, 2019 through November 4, 2019, each of which gave CWS steps to resolve the defaults. In addition to the default notices, the City also attempted to arrange meetings with CWS but CWS did not attend most meetings. The first default notice issued in March informed CWS of two material breaches resulting from CWS's failure to pay the 2018 fourth quarter Franchise Fee, which is 10% of its gross revenues, and its failure to a pay the one-time administrative fee of $100,000. The second notice sent in June identified breaches resulting from CWS having failed to ensure the City met the diversion rates required by AB 939. CalRecycle, in a “Reporting Conference� call with the City, indicated the diversion reports submitted by CWS were not successfully implemented or maintained. Due to the discrepancies, CalRecycle asked the City submit an informal action plan to address the deficiencies or receive a formal non-compliance notice. The notice also accused CWS of “inaccurate� diversion rates and provided reports comparing CWS’ diversion rates to California’s rates. CWS reported diversion rate was 42.21% while California’s report showed 18.13% In response, CWS attempted to resolve the breaches by providing: proof of

insurance coverage; receipts showing it had placed an order for the new clean air fleet but did not provide proof of a delivery date before August 1, 2019; a performance bond for the period of June 13, 2019 through June 12, 2020; and paying the late penalties for the Administration Fee. But the situation became increasingly worse and the City was forced to implement an audit of CWS financials and diversion rates. The City hired MuniEnvironmental to conduct an audit, but during the course of the examination, CWS “failed to provide the requested documentation, or provided documentation that was incomplete.� During that time, CWS once again failed to pay several fees to the City, including a $20,000 payment for AB 939 programs and a $25,000 audit program fee. Further the City would later learn that CWS was in obvious financial trouble when they investigated and found that CWS’ general insurance and worker’s compensation insurance had been cancelled. “You could see this coming from the beginning,� said one industry consultant who did not want to be identified, “the consultant the City hired told the Council the cost they were charging was far below their overall costs, CWS charged $14 per household and it probably cost over $20. But former Mayor Barry Bruce, former Councilwoman Marianna Rios, and current Councilman Hank Trimble voted yes and now the City is paying for it.� It has been reported by residents that the service has become increasingly shoddy in recent weeks with “dumpsters overflowing� in some areas.

Continued from page 1 prosper and help spur economic development in their communities. The City of La Mirada was a finalist among four cities with a population less than 50,000. La Mirada’s businessfriendly climate, efficient processes, and “dedicated to service� philosophy earned the City this prestigious recognition. La Mirada’s commitment to economic development is reflected through programs and services that facilitate business expansion and growth. The City keeps fees and taxes low and has never levied a utility user tax (UUT). As many cities are proposing new sales taxes, La Mirada allowed its five-year sales tax to sunset in 2018. For nearly 60 years, the City has remained a supportive partner to the business community and worked collaboratively with businesses to ensure La Mirada remains economically vibrant. “It was an honor to represent the City of La Mirada at the Eddy Awards and accept this distinguished recognition among other deserving cities,� says La Mirada Mayor Steve De Ruse. “La Mirada’s strong local economy has resulted in many jobs for our community and allows the City to offer high quality services.� La Mirada’s strong economic base provides jobs in a variety of key industries. The City’s low crime rate, low development costs, and the community’s high quality of life, continue to make La Mirada an ideal place for new businesses. La Mirada is home to over 1,000 businesses and several new establishments have chosen to invest in the city recently. This is La Mirada’s second time receiving the ‘Most Business-Friendly City’ honor.

The “Lakewood Public Safety/Local Control Measure� was developed after nearly a year of community-centered outreach following the adoption of the 2018-2019 budget, after State takeaways had begun to impact Lakewood’s services to residents. “The City of Lakewood has been engaging residents on their service priorities and our budget situation for several months now. Thank you to the hundreds of residents who took the time to participate,� said Mayor Todd Rogers. “We’re at a crossroads,� said Rogers. “Either we generate more revenue for Lakewood or we make deep cuts in our services to residents, including parks, community services and even public safety. And those would be cuts that would change Lakewood from the way we’ve known it for many years.� The measure includes strict accountability requirements, including mandatory financial audits and the creation of a Citizens Oversight Committee, to ensure that all funds are spent in Lakewood as promised.

DR. BRUCE HENSEL ARRESTED FOR SOLICITING A MINOR CERRITOS COLLEGE FORUM ON 166TH AND STUDEBAKER PROPERTY

ARRESTED: The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said Hensel allegedly requested the images from the daughter of an acquaintance through a messaging app in Aug. Photo courtesy Deadline.com Dr. Bruce M. Hensel, the former longtime medical correspondent for KNBC, was arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of asking a 9-year-old girl to send him sexually suggestive pictures. Hensel, 71, was taken into custody Wednesday by investigators from the Los Angeles Police Department's Juvenile Division, a spokesperson for the agency said. He was released later in the day after posting $5,000 bail. In a statement, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said Hensel was charged with one felony count of contact with a minor for sexual purposes. The D. A. said Hensel allegedly requested the images from the daughter of

an acquaintance through a messaging app in Aug. Hensel's attorney, Steve Sitkoff, released a statement: "Dr. Hensel is completely innocent of the charge. We are cooperating with the authorities and look forward to a speedy and complete exoneration." The arrest trail started on Oct. 16 when members of the L. A. Regional Internet Crime Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at Hensel's home in Pacific Palisades. Items were removed from the hillside house as part of the investigation, an LAPD spokesperson said.

Cerritos College will host its last community forum of the year to update residents about changes to its property located at the 166th Street and Studebaker Road corner lot on Tuesday, December 3, at 5 p.m. at the Cerritos College Fine Arts Building FA 134, 11110 Alondra Blvd., Norwalk. On September 18, 2017, the Cerritos City Council approved the College's Temporary Use Permit (TUP) for four years. The TUP authorizes the College to convert the property at 166th Street and

Studebaker Road into an automobile storage facility. The Cerritos College Board of Trustees passed a resolution on September 6, 2017, to address issues raised by residents and the City, including dust and light mitigation, hours of operation, loading of vehicles, security, and landscaping. The College continues to work closely with the City of Cerritos to meet the requirements outlined in the TUP. For more information, contact the President’s Office at (562) 860-2451 ext. 2204.

BELLFLOWER DENTAL HOLDS HALLOWEEN OPEN HOUSE

NOVEMBER 15, 2019

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING/PROPOSED ORDINANCE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Cerritos City Council will conduct a public hearing at a special meeting on Monday, November 25, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. on the following matter: Recommendation by the Cerritos Planning Commission to approve the following: Review and consideration to waive full reading of and adopt A RESOLUTION OF THE CERRITOS CITY COUNCIL AMENDING THE CERRITOS GENERAL PLAN LAND USE MAP BY CHANGING THE LAND USE DESIGNATION OF APPROXIMATELY ±1.98 ACRES OF LAND, LOCATED AT 12616 183RD STREET (APN 7030-002-902), FROM PUBLIC AND QUASI PUBLIC TO OFFICE PROFESSIONAL COMMERCIAL, HEREIN REFERENCED AS GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT 2017-1.* Review and consideration to waive full reading of and introduce AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF CERRITOS AMENDING THE CERRITOS DEVELOPMENT MAP BY CHANGING THE ZONE CLASSIFICATION OF APPROXIMATELY ±1.98 ACRES OF LAND, LOCATED AT 12616 183RD STREET (APN 7030-002-902), FROM OPEN SPACE (OS) TO COMMERCIAL OFFICE PROFESSIONAL (COP), HEREIN REFERENCED AS DEVELOPMENT MAP AMENDMENT 2017-2.* *Pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), this project is categorically exempt from CEQA Review.

HALLOWEEN PARTY: The front office staff was ready and willing to help Count Dracula count the many fangs that were in attendance. BY TAMMYE MCDUFF Bellflower Dental Group [BDG] held their annual Halloween party and open house last month on October 26th. The once a year celebration featured great food; a dancing D.J.; face painting; arts and crafts; a costume contest and believe it or not they even handed out candy [sugar free of course] and multicolored cotton candy. Although the yearly party is all in good fun, there is a deeper meaning to it all, to reach out to the community and encourage better dental health. Irena Schar, Office Administrator agreed that the event was to introduce BDG to the community, give a little back and have some fun, “Because going to the dentist is never seen as fun!” said Schar, ”A good dental routine is highly important to overall health. We want to make it as easy and interesting as possible while stressing the importance of not avoiding the dentist.” It is a little known fact that most doctors, when treating cancer patients and before administering chemo, recommend a deep and thorough dental cleaning. “If your teeth and gums are healthy, then it is a good bet that your body will be healthy

as well,” added Schar, “an infection in your mouth can travel through the entire blood system!” Schar went on to explain that if you cleaned your ear and blood was on the qtip, you would call the doctor immediately, “However when people take a toothbrush out of their mouth and spit blood, everyone thinks it is normal. It isn’t.” The carnival catered to kids on how to properly brush their fangs, and how to react if they see blood and gave some advice to adults as well. Did you know that by flossing once a day you can increase your life expectancy by six years and that tooth decay is the second most common disease, coming in a close second to the common cold. They really do believe in a dental practice that has patience and kindness to achieve a non stressful appointment and a healthy smile. “We offer all types of dental services including, cosmetic, restorative, general, specialty and we even have an emergency hotline, “said Dr. Arkady Tsibel,”Our procedures are affordable and give you excellent value with quality treatment and not just after eating Halloween candy!”

City Attorney Summary: In 2001, the former Cerritos Redevelopment Agency purchased the subject property located at 12616 183rd Street, Cerritos, California, 90703, to expand the City's cultural and educational resources by developing a City-operated museum. At the time of acquisition, the property had a General Plan land use designation of Office Professional Commercial and zoning designation of Commercial Office Professional (COP). The City Council then changed the land use designation to Public and Quasi Public and the zoning designation to Open Space (OS), to facilitate the development of the museum. Due to redevelopment dissolution and budget constraints, in June 2017, the City Council directed staff to pursue the opportunity to lease the two-story building located on the property, as an additional source of revenue for the City as part of the fiscal management program. Accordingly, General Plan Amendment 2017-1 proposes to change the land use designation back to its original designation of Office Professional Commercial, and Development Map Amendment 2017-2 proposes to change the zoning designation back to its original designation of Commercial Office Professional (COP). Review and consideration to waive full reading of and adopt A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF CERRITOS APPROVING PUBLIC REFERRAL PROJECT 2019-1, A PROPOSAL BY THE CITY OF CERRITOS DEPARTMENT OF ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES TO EXPAND THE FIRST FLOOR AND REMODEL THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR OF AN EXISTING CITY-OWNED TWO-STORY OFFICE BUILDING LOCATED AT 12616 183RD STREET, CERRITOS, CALIFORNIA, 90703. THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS PROPOSED TO BE RE-ZONED FROM OPEN SPACE (OS) TO ITS ORIGINAL ZONING DESIGNATION OF COMMERCIAL OFFICE PROFESSIONAL (COP) UNDER DEVELOPMENT MAP AMENDMENT 2017-2 (APN 7030-002-902).* *Pursuant to Section 15301 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), this project is categorically exempt from CEQA review. This public hearing will be conducted in the Council Chambers of the Cerritos City Hall, Cerritos Civic Center, Bloomfield Avenue and 183rd Street in Cerritos, California 90703. The meeting will also air live on Cerritos TV3 and will be streamed over the City of Cerritos website at www.cerritos. us.

YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED 03/21/2007. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, (cashier's check(s) must be made payable to National Default Servicing Corporation), drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state; will be held by the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below.

The requirements of California Civil Code Section 2923.5(b)/2923.55(c) were fulfilled when the Notice of Default was recorded. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800-280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site www.ndscorp.com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case 19-20339-SP-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
