Hawaiian Gardens Bingo Club Celebrate Annual Christmas Party

By Jerry Bernstein Cerritos officials and members of AFSCME Local 619 are once again at loggerheads with the union charging the city with bargaining in bad faith in current negotiations with city part-time employees. Appearing before the city council Dec 8, Union chief negotiator Gary Kelson asked the city council to look at the matter objectively and how it affects the employees of this city and their family budgets. That’s what it is all about,” he asserted. Adam Acosta, Associate Director of AFSCME told LCCN at this juncture the union just wants to retain the present salary for its members for the next three years. He said the city wants to cut the salaries of all its part time workers by seven percent. “Unlike neighboring cities with budget deficits and employee layoffs, Cerritos doesn’t have that problem. It doesn’t need to cut the salaries

Cerritos College Trustees Approve New Voter Redistricting Plan

N e e d to S e e a

Giuests included Assemblyman Tony Mendoza, Congresswoman Linda Sanchez, ABC School Board member Celia Sptizer, and Community Activist Mary Lou Landes . Presiding over the event was Orin Ben Esra, the Irving Moskowitz Foundation Director.

The Cerritos College Board of Trustees adopted a new redistricting plan at its Dec. 7 meeting that will change the way voters elect the seven elected officials who serve as Governing Board Members. After three months of hearings and discussions, the Board adopted Plan 1B creating seven new trustees’ areas. The new plan goes into effect beginning in the November, 2012 election cycle. Voters will no longer elect board trustee members at large, but from seven new districts that look more like a “jigsaw puzzle” according to some vocal community members. The Board took the action on Wednesday night during the same time a group of three plaintiffs had filed a lawsuit in favor of the having the college carved up into seven new smaller

ABC Board Prepares for Additional Budge Cuts By Jerry Bernstein The ABC School Board approved the first interim report of the district budget as required by the state, at the same time anticipating further budget cuts. Chief Financial Officer Toan Nguyen said the state requires the District to certify that it expects to end the fiscal year with a positive fund balance. He said the first interim report now goes to the Los Angeles County Office of Education on Dec. 15. A second interim report will be made in March 2012. He said for the most part as of today there are no major changes in the budget with the exception of a $79,763

reduction from the approved budget of $123,765,742 due to a minor attendance factor. He noted that with the first interim report the revenue limit received from the state is the ADA [Student Average Daily Attendance] money received from the state, which is $2.9 million. We only received about 60 percent in the current year. About 40 percent was deferred for future years. He said when the state budget was adopted in June, in order to balance it; they estimated the state revenue would be $4 billion. “This was unrealistic,” he stated. “However, the legislature also included in the budget a Plan B in case the anticipated revenue wasn’t there. There would be automatic cuts in various programs, including education,” he said. Nguyen explained the budget called for two projections to determine how deep the cuts would be if the anticipated revenue weren’t there. One projection would be made by the Legislative Office and the other by the State Department of Finance. Whichever projection was higher that

would be the one they would use. “It has already been determined if the budget $3.7 billon short, this will equals about $190 per student plus $600,000 in transportation. He said the next projection would be coming out on Dec.15, with the worstcase projection being that we will get a reduction of $4.4 million. Looking forward to the 2012-13 fiscal year, the legislature analyst is looking at a $12 to $13 billion deficit. He said on the brighter side there are four proposed initiatives that would provide additional funding for education. Board Vice President Celia Spitzer commented that at the closing session of the California School Board Association recently the consensus was the people would not vote for four tax increase initiatives. She said they felt it would be better to combine them into one. Board Member Maynard Law asked what would happen if the state cut off funding for student transportation when transportation for special education students is provided by federal law?

Nguyen said the district is mandated to provide transportation for special education students. We would have to comply whether we get state funding or not.” Superintendent Dr. Gary Smuts said it’s not that the cuts were not antcipated, but with the partnership we have with our employee groups we will just have to regroup at the next budget recycle”. He reminded those present that the District had to make decisions before the state began to deal the cards. We’ll be able to weather it but we will have to decide where we will cut down in the next budget cycle.” Law said at the Conference there was hope that there was a mechanism that will be a secure long-term mechanism that we can rely on. “We’re not giving up on this,” he said. Nguyen said the governor and Republicans/Democrats in the legislature recognize the cuts to education have been too serve and cannot take additional cuts. Without major impact to the education program in the state.

IMPACT ON NEW BUDGET CUTS TO ABC UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT By Dr. Mary Sieu Deputy Superintendent As you may have heard, the Governor recently announced that nearly $1 billion in new state budget cuts will soon take effect. As a result of our District’s prudent fiscal planning and sacrifices made by all our employees this year, the impact of these budget reductions to ABC Unified School District for the 2011-12 school year will be minimal.

The total midyear budget reduction for ABC Unified School District is $862,000. This includes a reduction in Transportation of $606,000; Revenue Limit of $220,000 and Child Care of $36,000. The District currently has a sufficient fund balance to offset the midyear budget reductions by the State due to our proactive planning. As a result: There will be no change in the 20112012 school year.

There will be no reduction in transportation services to the students and staff. There will be no additional furlough days for the staff in 2011-2012. There will be no reductions in child care services or staff. Clearly, these midyear cuts are not minor to the overall impact to education. The Governor has warned of additional cuts in the future. We will continue to keep the District and community updated of how we are meeting these fiscal challenges.

Murder charges were filed Tuesday afternoon against Norwalk resident Israel Cortez in the shooting death of a woman. Cortez, 33, was arrested on Sunday afternoon after he allegedly shot a female in an apartment they apparently share at the corner of Sproul Avenue and Clarkdale Avenue. According to Lt. Matt Burson with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, the victim, only described as a “female adult,” died at the scene from her injuries. Cortez appeared in Bellflower Superior Court Division 3 in front of Judge Lee Tipton early Tuesday afternoon and faces one felony count of murder and one felony count of using an unlawful fire arm. According to Los Angeles County District Attorney spokesperson Shiara Davila-Morales, Cortez made a brief appearance in court. His arraignment has been set for Jan. 11, 2012. The scene of the crime was contained by law enforcement for several hours on Sunday that is located across the street from the Norwalk Arts and Sports Complex. No one who was at the facility was ever in danger, according to Lt. Burson. Burson also confirmed that a minor child was taken from the location, but the relationship of the child between the sus-

pect and victim has still to be positively determined. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Spokesman Tony Moore told Los Cerritos Community News on Sunday that members of the Norwalk Sheriff's Department responded to a "shots fired" called at around 12:40 p.m. at a small apartment complex. Captain John Kades with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Department said the name of the victim will not be made public until “next of kin” can been “properly informed.” Meanwhile, the apartment complex where the murder took place is slowly getting back to normal as of late Tuesday afternoon. Yellow crime scene tape still remains. One neighbor who did not want to be identified told Los Cerritos Community News that “it was very scary and very sad at the same time.” Cortez is listed as being 5’5 and weighing 200 lbs on his formal booking sheet. He is being held without bail.

Whitney Student Volunteers Summer Working in Dental Clinic in India By Manas Gandhi Editor’s Note: The following was written by Manas Gandhi, a student attending Whitney High School. Manas spent part of his summer vacation in India where he volunteer ed to work in two dental clinics. This is his story. There are two different organizations with similar goals; that bring dental health care to those who can't afford it. The Children's Dental Health Clinic, located in Long Beach and Bellflower,

treats underprivileged kids in the Los Angeles area. The second organization is Global Dental Relief, a non-profit that travels around the world to impoverished areas such as Guatemala, India, and Vietnam treating kids who live there. Both have a worthy cause, and a great team of dentists who make the most out of what they have. I was able to volunteer for both organizations and learn about what they do and how they do it. My summer work began in Children's Dental Health Clinic (CDHC with my first day in Bellflower,. My official title was: observer. I was there to watch what they did and learn valuable skills for my trip to India with Global Dental Relief. At first, it was kind of boring. I mean, sitting and watching anything for over three hours is boring to me (the exception being basketball games, of course). However, the assistants who taught me were very kind, and I got to interact with the kids. Even though I was just watching, this was all very exciting for me, since it was my first experience in the “work force”. I worked at Bellflower and Long Beach for 4-5 weeks, learning the “tricks of the trade”. One thing I noticed was the number of kids who came in for treatment. There wasn't a single point during my internship at either Bellflower or Long Beach where the waiting room wasn't full. CDHC doesn't charge a dime to any of the kids for the work they do, All the funding comes from

sponsors and donations. I was amazed at how efficient the system was, and how the short time and limited resources were spent wisely. The need for CHDC is huge, and I have to say, for every dollar donated, the work was worth five times that. I had learned so much in such a short amount of time: which tools were which and when they were needed, the entire procedure for fillings and extractions, clean-up and set-up, and preparation for the next day. August came around, and with over 100 hours of interning under my belt, I was off to India. Ladak is a remote region in Northern India at an elevation of 12,000 feet. I couldn't wait to finally apply what I had trained to do all summer. The first day in Ladak wasn't a work day, so I was able to spend the day exploring the surrounding area. One thing I noticed right away: the native Ladakhi's didn't look Indian. I later learned that many of the Ladaki's were refugees from Tibet because of persecution from the Chinese government. They also had their own language, Ladakhi. Ladakhi originated from the Tibetan language. This is the equivalent of Orange County having their own language within the United States. Once work finally began, a Buddhist school came to the clinic. My job was intake. Basically, a dentist would examine the kids' teeth, tell me which teeth needed to be fixed or pulled, I would write the instructions down. The dentist would then numb the teeth, and I would meander the kids to a waiting room where they stayed until another doctor was ready for them. The system worked perfectly because there was a continuous flow of in and out patients. Once intake was done, I assisted in actual dental procedures. This was my job for the course of the working period. Though there are so many stories to tell, two is the limit I can tell in this restricted time continuum. The first is of a nine-year old girl I met on the fourth work day. When she first came to the chair, she was uncooperative. She wouldn't open her mouth, listen, or stop moving. After some tough love, she finally cracked open her jaw. What I saw in there was not pretty. Her front top tooth had morphed to sticky cavity. I could hardly look at it. She had a lot of work to be done, but we had to start with the front tooth to gain her trust. Slowly but surely, we scraped all the way to the back of the tooth, and

luckily, there was enough left to save the tooth. Stephen, the oral surgeon, chose to reconstruct her tooth. Using composite, he slowly repaired the tooth with the girl watching every step as she observed through a mirror. After the final touch, the tooth looked perfect. The little girl was amazed and put her full trust in Stephen, listening to his every instruction. She altered from Mike Tyson to Shirley Temple. Her work was complete after a filling and an extraction. The before and after was beyond amazing. The little girl couldn't stop smiling. To see a girl who was too embarrassed to even smile transform into the happiest girl in Ladak made me so happy. It is a feeling that can't be understood unless you have experienced it. To me, this was what this whole trip was about. The second memorable moment is of a confident girl who came in on the last day. She was this cute little six-year old named Joann. She just plopped into the chair, didn't make a peep while being continuously jabbed and prodded with a razor-sharp needle. The entire procedure was completed with absolutely no change in demeanor. It was amazing, to say the least because it was a sharp contrast to what I had seen at CDHC. Most of the kids at CDHC were given nitrous oxide to calm them down and they still cry and scream. But Joann was quiet and helpful the whole way through. On top of that, she comforted her older sister, who cried a river. What shocked me was that appreciation this girl had for the care she received at the age of six. She understood how lucky she was, but I have to tell you, I was the one who felt fortunate to have met. I am back in school, with my days in Ladak and CDHC behind me. I do plan on going on a trip with Global Dental Relief again and volunteering at CDHC next summer. But for now, I am back to real-life, where my homework and tests that I missed are catching up to me. My everyday schedule has somewhat stabilized, and all is well. But every once in a while, when my mind drifts, I am back in Ladak. I am constantly moving, getting the next patient. I am preparing for an extraction or handing the dentist the amalgam. I am back in Ladak, looking at the smiling faces of the kids who I have helped treat.

KEB MO: HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS AT CERRITOS

KEB MO By Glen Creason The first time Keb Mo visited Cerritos as a warm-up act he demonstrated talent so impressive it was evident that he would return for greater glory. That night he seemed to be a torchbearer of true Southern Blues music with an authentic gutbucket growl and a virtuoso touch on the slide guitar. He has returned several times since, growing

in stature with each visit and is now in a small handful of Southern California musicians who are at the top of their game. I would go further and say he is the best local artist we have around these parts, surpassing the guys in Los Lobos and greats like Dave Alvin. Keb Mo has evolved from a blues messenger to a singer of poignant ballads and newBlues that expose young people to that great tradition while winning a wider audience with his poetic lyrics and superb guitar skills. It was truly home for the holidays at Cerritos with his Mom in the house and an enthusiastic crowd reacting joyfully to almost two dozen gems he performed with style and a cool that was only broken by passionate readings of some touching ballads. There were the undulating blues beauties like “Loola Loo,” “Whole Enchilada,” “Shave Yo’ Legs,” “Soon As I Get Paid” and “Dangerous Mood” that had sections rocking in time across the big hall. The man is always in command and his crisp guitar work seems to flow effortlessly from a number of instruments ranging from picking a flattop to an electric resophonic guitar to a steelbodied beauty that sings with the bottle neck playing. He has expanded his scope away from the traditional Blues with darker tales, now telling his own very optimistic hybrid of songs that strum heartstrings and ring very true to the times. Truly exceptional song-writing and

performing were showcased in beauties like “Every Morning,” “Stand Up and Be Strong,” “I’ll Be Your Water,” “the Door Is Always Open” and the deeply moving “We Don’t Need It” that was an anthem worthy of the worst and best of 2011. There was also plenty of just plain funky fun stuff like “Government Cheese,” “I See Love” “Suitcase” and the extended, high-voltage jam of “Gimme What You Got” that even separated some fans from their seats and set the hall to dancing. Keb Mo’s band is excellent in support of his guitar wizardry; equally terrific were Vail Johnson on bass, Jeff Paris on mandolin, Michael Hicks on organ, soulful Kevin So on keyboards and Les Falconer whose drum work was right on the mark. Oh yes, there were some holiday tunes mixed in with the ballads and blues that made the Christmas tree on stage make sense. “Jingle Bell Jam-

boree” was the best in the Christmas tree lot but “We Call It Christmas,” a loosely interpreted “Jingle Bells” and “the Christmas Song” sung for his dear Mom made the season bright indeed. While Keb Mo only played a portion of his music in the Yule spirit he did follow the poignant line of the show opener “the more you give, the more you receive.” He gave another superb show and received a standing ovation that he humbly accepted with the full band.

ABC UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT WINS TWO GOLDEN BELL AWARDS

A

BC Unified School District in southeast Los Angeles County was honored at the 32nd Annual Golden Bell Awards Program of the California School Boards Association at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in San Diego on Dec. 3, 2011. One award was won in the Partnerships and Collaboratives category for Carver Academy’s Enrichment Clusters Program. The elementary school program, located in Cerritos, brings together students and adults in the community with common interests. Students self select enrichment classes facilitated by school staff, parents and community volunteers. Enrichment cluster classes extend the learning for all students. The second Golden Bell Award was for an outstanding Middle School program. That went to Carmenita Middle School located in Cerritos. The Distinguished Scholars Program provides an avenue for students who have an interest in a specific subject area to attain a deeper understanding and encourages a passion for lifelong learning. The highly respected Golden Bell Awards Program was held in conjunction with the California School Boards Association’s Annual Education Conference. The Awards Program promotes excellence in education by recognizing outstanding programs in school districts and offices of education throughout California. ABC Unified School District has won eleven Golden Bell Awards since 2002. This is the second time that the District has won two awards in the same year. Attending the Awards Program were school board members Maynard Law, Celia Spitzer, Sophia Tse and Lynda Johnson. Superintendent Dr. Gary Smuts, Deputy Superintendent Dr. Mary Sieu, Debbie Berlyn Principal-Carver Academy, Kester Song, PrincipalCarmenita MS and teachers representing both schools were in attendance at the Awards Luncheon.

Assemblymember Greets Supporters at Annual Open House and Toy Drive An article was published last week entitled Assemblymember Greets Supporters With Mixed Emotions written by Larry Caballero covering Assemblymember Mendoza’s annual Toy Drive. LCCN did not approve or condone the contents of the article. We regret the coverage by Mr. Caballero took attention away from the good work that Assemblymember Mendoza’s charity does for the community. Assemblymember Tony Mendoza greeted supporters Nov. 7 at his Annual Open House and Toy Drive at his district office where he said that he had “mixed emotions because this will be my last Open House, and it feels kind of strange.” Because of term limits, Mendoza is termed out of office at the end of next year. Mendoza told supporters that “it’s been a lot of work being in the assembly, and I have tried to be as visible as possible in the district, and I took tough votes that didn’t always please the Leadership in Sacramento.” One vote was to oppose the abolishing of redevelopment agencies that the Leadership had supported to bring additional revenue to the state. “You can count on me to do what I think is right for

Asked what he plans to do when his term of office is over next year, he said he is preparing for his next campaign, which will be in 2014 when State Senator Ron Calderon is termed out.

Continued from page 1 walk resident Jesse Urquidi was given the Oath by Norwalk Vice Mayor Cheri Kelley. Planzer told Los Cerritos Community News that he has been working hard “for the past seven years on behalf of the students and parents” and is ready to “hit the ground running.” Planzer also had his two daughters participate in the ceremony by leading the meeting in the “Pledge of Allegiance.” “I doing this for them (his children) and all the children of Norwalk and La Mirada,” he said. Planzer also said he was also “amazed” on “how much reading” is involved in preparing for board meetings. “This is going to be a wonderful experience, and I thank those voters who made this possible,” Planzer said. Urquidi is a lifelong resident of the community and was born in Norwalk and attended Nettie L. Waite Elementary School and graduated from John Glenn High School. He has also been a driving force as a member of the Southeast Regional Occupational Program (SEROP) Board of Directors. During a recent interview with Los Cerritos Community News, Urquidi said that he will be focusing his efforts as a Member of the Board of Education on “fiscal issues” and the ongoing budget challenges that face public school districts up and down California. Morrison was returned to office for another four year term. The popular community leader was the over top vote getting in the November 8 election. This will be the start of her third term on the governing body. Morrison campaigned on a pledge of being able to “provide a quality education for all students” and will continue to focus her efforts towards “high academic achievement and continued fiscal solvency.” Veteran school board member Daryl Adams was selected by the new board to be its new President for the next 12 months, and Ed Hengler was picked to serve as Vice President.

CONTRACT

Continued from page 1 of workers who earn only $9 and $10 an hour.” He said right now Cerritos does not provide any sick leave, bereavement leave, or jury duty leave and when a facility closes the part time worker lose a day’s pay. Kelson told the council when the city representatives and union negotiators met on Nov. 22 the city negotiators delivered its Last, Best and Final Offer after making only two proposals since June, 2011 and unilaterally declared an impasse, calling for State Mediation. Kelson said the city’s proposal called for a seven percent cut across the board, no matter how long the people have been employed by the city. He said a part time library employee who now earns $9.25 an hour will have their salary reduced seven percent. He said under the city’s proposal beginning rate salaries would go under $9 per hour. “We have three tiers of part time salaries and apparently the city is now proposing a fourth tier. ” Kelson said, “When the negotiating committee met on Nov. 22, we asked for a meeting the following week so we could discuss the city’s offer with our

membership. We were told no, we’re going to impasse.” Kelson said they went back to the rank and file anyway and came up with a comprise.” We dropped a proposal seeking an increase in the employer contribution to healthcare premiums for PERS part-timers, noting premiums will increase in January and accepted a city proposal the employees pick up the increase. They also dropped a request for paid leave. In return we wanted no pay cuts and agreed to new hires being paid under $9 per hour.” He said the city has yet to reply. City’s Declares Impasse Denise Monoogian, Cerritos Director of Administrative Services, said the city called an impasse because it felt a neutral state mediator will help us come up with an agreement. Manoogian explained the seven percent goes back to a time when there were no part-time employees in PERS just full time employees. The city elected at that time to take the full time employees to seven percent. The city then increased the part time salaries by seven percent. “What you have today is you have a pay schedule where a full time receptionist is paid approximately seven percent less than a part time employee.” Manoogian said when they [Union] say they pay their own seven percent that is not the full story. Today we have part time workers in PERS. What we do is they pay PERS but we kept their pay higher. She said what we could have done in pervious negotiations is offered to pay the seven percent but lower their salaries. It was decided to keep the salary higher and they would pay the seven percent. She said it is incorrect to say they are paying a higher level of benefits than the full timers. She said the city has attempted to negotiate and it has been a primary focus to reach an agreement with our part time employees “On Dec. 2 Gary Kelson presented a proposal which we will discuss on Dec. 20 with the state mediator. We are very close to reaching an agreement,” she stated. City Manager Art Gallucci said the city during different times of the year, averages about 450 employees working at any given time. He said the city’s norm is 250 to 300 employees. “The city appreciates our employees and what they do. Because of that the city council has paid them the highest wages in the region. “ Examples cited include the position of Recreation Leader II at $13.75; Irvine

is number three at $12.99. Senior Life Guard, $23.50 an hour. Second highest is Newport Beach at $19. Irvine is seventh from the bottom at $12.99. Senior Center Specialist: Norwalk is the highest at $21. Cerritos is second at $20.88. Irvine is fourth at $16.96. Irvine is the city that gave a bonus to its employees, which came up during negotiations. Secretary-Receptionist, Cerritos is the highest in the region at $26.37. Number Two is Newport Beach at $22. Irvine is Number four at $20. Library Page, Cerritos is number two at $18 per hour. Crossing Guards, Cerritos is first at $18 per hour. He said Cerritos is either number one or number two in the entire region.

voter districts. Area residents Carman Avalos, Leonard Zuniga and Tom Chavez were the three plaintiffs in the law suit that targeted the California Voting Rights Act and the Federal Voting Rights Act. The Trustees voted to adopt “Plan 1B” that was one of three drafts that had been submitted for consideration in a process that began last spring. “Currently, board members are elected by all registered voters from throughout the district. But with trustee-area elections, voters can only elect board members who reside in their particular trustee area,” said Cerritos College spokeswoman Aya Avelon in a release to the media on Thursday morning. Four four-year seats and one twoyear seat will be up for election representing five of the new trustee areas in November 2012. The two year seat is the balance of the term held by the late Bob Epple. This two-year seat will resume its pattern of four year terms in 2014 along with the remaining two board seats not on the 2012 ballot. The change from at-large elections to trustee area elections will be reviewed as required by new state legislation by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges at a meeting in the spring and then the plan will be ready for the Los Angeles County Registrar to implement for the November 2012 election.

Firehouse Art Collective and Collaborative “Co-create community and culture among artists”. By Brian Hews Berkeley, California-In our travels, we always keep an eye out for art, projects, most anything that involves visual arts. Knowing many artists who often struggle to get their work found, we try to promote the visual arts any time we can. This past few weeks my family and I have been looking at colleges and while in the San Francisco/Berkeley area, I happen to stumble upon a real gem. We were walking along Shattuck Ave., known as Gourmet Ghetto in Berkeley (that’s for another article, suffice to say great food area), and saw a funky art gallery called Firehouse North Collective. The Firehouse was associated with other galleries in the community and also held an Artist’s Collective/Collaborative

Collective Director Tom Franco with Joe Halperin paints the "Last Supper" at the Co-Lab in 2011.

LOSCERRITOSNEWS.NET every Saturday in downtown Berkeley to “co-create community and culture”. Intrigued about the concept, I placed a call to interview the director, Tom Franco, and we booked a date to interview. I was very surprised to learn (from my daughters) that Tom Franco was the son of Betsy Loua poet, author, and editor, Douglas Franco, who runs a non-profit agency and a shipping container company-his brother is the Oscar nominated actor James Franco. We met at his Saturday Collaborative where he had me over a barrel (literally) and under an umbrella (thankfully). LCCN: How did you get started? TF: We are a family of artists. I really started doing it myself when I was 15, the family encouraged me, I felt really good about at my work so I pursued it. I started taking classes outside of school, that’s when my first sculpting teacher told me my work was good. LCCN: What kind of mediums do you work with? TF: I started with drawings then went on to clay finger modeling. LCCN: How supportive were your parents? TF: My parents were very supportive. They both majored at Stanford in art, that’s how they met. But, as many artists know, unless you are lucky, art won’t support you or your family so my mom went into writing and my dad (double major in business) went into business. After a successful career ironically my dad taught at drawing class here in Berkeley. LCCN: Who was the teacher that influenced you the most? TF: My first sculpting teacher Bill Iaculla who still lives in Palo Alto. I saw and very much admired what he was doing and said to myself “I could do that”. He was very supportive as a matter of fact we are about to do a collaborative together. LCCN: Can you tell me a little about the Collaborative?

COMMUNITY NEWS GROUP • DECEMBER 16, 2011

TF: Our goal is to bring artists together. We have our studio spaces, artists’ living spaces, and the galleries. At this point we are really trying to build our live events (every Saturday). We really need more live events to engage all the artists. We engage more artists; more people will come and see their work. The events are a combination of artists and vendor spaces, we rent the spaces out, and we have over 35 artists now. LCCN: Bringing artists together, is that your community vision for the Collaborative? TF: We want to create a space for artists to co-create community and culture. As artists ourselves we are in a dilemma. We were trained to be isolated (to paint or sculpt) and not really function with any potential-and I use the word nicely-in the community, that is the nature of art, so by coming together we are creating a community. This is something that we don’t have to force, it’s a natural thing for artists to get together and create art. When everybody comes together, everyone has a purpose, they are not isolated, their life has meaning, and they are not wondering what they are doing or going to do. Again, unless you are lucky, there is nowhere to go show your work; we are creating a place for that. Ironically, schools had facilities for art, but you were actually taught that you are not going anywhere with art, so you better stay in school and get a teaching credential or get another major. LCCN: Are you painting and sculpting your own art? TF: Yes I have to do my art. Some of the best moments come from when I do a collaborative show. All the artists and food vendors come in and we show off our work; I need to be a part of that. LCCN: How’s the future look for the collective? TF: We are building staff to start putting more of these types of events on, get

I am negotiating trade-outs with other Saturday events here in the city so we can promote each other at our events. This one-the Firehouse East Bazaar (3192 Adeline St, Berkeley) is going well and we are working on the Firehouse West Bazaar (in Gilman Village) here in Berkeley. The response has been very good, are ready to grow. LCCN:To co-create community and culture among local artists? TF: Yes indeed. Tom’s work can be seen at http://tomfranco. blogspot.com/p/sculptures.html, find out more about the Collective at http:// firehouseartcollective.blogspot.com/ and to find out more about his live Saturday bazaar go to http://firehouseartcollective. blogspot.com/p/fac-bazaar.html.

LCCN would like to dedicate this article to Doug Franco (Tom's Dad) who passed away September of this year. Doug is survived by his wife Betsy and three sons; James, Tom, and Dave. He was 63.

EXPERIENCE AND HEIGHT THE KEY FACTORS AS GAHR OVERWHELMS CERRITOS By Loren Kopff The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Cerritos and Gahr boys basketball teams lost a combined seven starters from last season that went deep in the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section playoffs. But when it comes to the annual city rivalry, Gahr is still the king. The visiting Gladiators scored the first 11 points of the game and never trailed as they defeated the Dons 76-64 for their third straight win in the series and fifth in the last seven meetings. The two combatants may not play in

cluding a career-high 30 points this past Monday night against Tesoro, Fulton has scored at least 24 points in five of the first six games this season. “He’s a good player,” Roper said. “He single handedly kept them in the game. But we did a much better job in the second half, not settling for three’s and getting the ball down low.” “He’s our number one option,” Watanabe said. “The guys understand that and everyone else has different roles. We got key contributions from the other guys. [Junior guard] Bryan Tong hit a few shots, [junior guard] Dylan Hirata hit a few shots and [senior guard] Jacob Badillo stepped up.” Badillo and Tong each scored 12 points but combined for 16 of those points in the fourth quarter. Junior guard/forward Elijah Leonard had five rebounds to lead Cerritos in that department but the story was still the muscle and power of Gahr. Thomas led the Gladiators with a season-high 20 points and has scored in double figures in the first six games of the season. Benton finished with 12 points, all in the second half, and grabbed 11 rebounds in the final 16 minutes along with three blocks. Benson had seven of his nine rebounds in the second half and finished with nine points as they are getting adjusted to new roles after watching Davon Potts and Javonte Sales lead Gahr last season. “Those two guys last year just platooned and basically rebounded and played defense,” Roper said. “Now they’re in the post and on the perimeter. They’re more guard/forward type players.” Nebo scored 18 points and had seven WHY PAY MORE rebounds and Martinez finished with a TO PRINT? www.cartridgeworldusa.com/Store275 dozen points to round out the starting • We refill all major brands five. • 100% satisfaction guaranteed “It’s night and day,” Watanabe said. • Locally owned & operated “They just have all of the bigs this year. • We refill all major brands They power the ball inside and they get • 100% satisfaction guaranteed the offensive boards.

the same league, but Gahr head coach Ricky Roper stated, ‘it was kind of a league atmosphere tonight’. But unlike most close league or non league games between city rivals, this one was clearly dominated by Gahr, which outrebounded Cerritos 55-19 and led by as many as 19 points late in the fourth quarter. “They are so big,” said Cerritos head coach Jonathan Watanabe. “I thought we played extremely well but their second chance opportunities are just so tough and we’re very limited size-wise. Their size was a definite factor.” Cerritos didn’t score until 2:50 remained in the first quarter when senior

guard/forward Terrence Fulton scored the first of five straight baskets for the hosts. As quickly as the Gladiators got out to the big lead, Cerritos got to within 14-12 before Gahr pulled away. In fact, Cerritos got to within a point once and two points twice in the final minute of the half but the Gladiators still held serve. “We came out ready to play but we just weren’t able to maintain our defensive intensity,” Roper said. “We kind of got a little bit lax on [Fulton] and let him get some looks.” Gahr was paced by all five starters with senior center Davion Thomas, the newcomer to the school, scoring a dozen points in the first half with nine rebounds, six of them coming on the offensive end. Senior guard Anthony Martinez and junior guard Brian Nebo each had eight points by halftime while senior forward John Benson had two blocks and junior forward Kyle Benton had four rebounds and two assists in what was just a prelude to what would be an outstanding second half.

NORWALK LACKS OFFENSE AGAINST ST. PAUL, FALLS IN THIRD PLACE GAME

Norwalk girls basketball head coach Richard Drake predicted his team would get to at least the semifinals of the 12th annual Glenn/Norwalk Tournament. The Lady Lancers achieved that feat, then fell flat against South Torrance before losing to St. Paul in the third place game last Saturday night. Unable to get many shots off, let alone get anywhere close inside St. Paul territory, the Lady Lancers were flustered for the first three quarters and were dominated by the Swordsmen 59-31. Since beginning the season with six straight wins, the Lady Lancers have now lost three straight including a 52-26 setback to La Habra this past Monday. “We played a team that played us very high, tight and forced our offense at the top of the key, basically at the half-

court line,” Drake said. “No offense can be successful when you have to start out there. You have to give all of the credit to St. Paul. They forced us out of what we do.” Senior center Nia Lateju finished off a three-point play early in the game to make it a 6-5 St. Paul advantage. But the Swordsmen went on a 13-0 run that was halted when Lateju scored at the buzzer to end the first quarter. Lateju, the team’s leading scorer, had five of her team’s seven points in the opening stanza. But Norwalk was limited to only six field goal attempts in the first quarter and another nine in the second quarter as St. Paul continued to put on the pressure in several ways. Norwalk turned the ball over 11 times in the first half, giving St. Paul every chance down the court. The Swordsmen shot 48 percent from the field in the first half while Lateju grabbed

seven of her team’s 11 rebounds during that same time. “It’s called box-out and hustle,” Drake said. “A day late and a dollar short, we didn’t have the hustle and we didn’t have the movement. St. Paul, just like South Torrance the night before, exposed our poor ball handling and our poor passing.” Norwalk trailed 32-15 at the half and it got worse in the third quarter as it was held to only one basket in three attempts, that coming from senior guard Michelle Pulido midway through the stanza. St. Paul ended the quarter on a 10-0 run to hold its largest lead of the game at 32 points. Lateju, who was named to the alltournament team, led Norwalk with 14 points and 10 rebounds while senior forward Maiya Griffin-McNair added nine points and three rebounds. Senior

guard Larissa Perez was also named to the all-tournament team. Norwalk began the tournament last Wednesday with a 45-16 win against Pioneer behind Lateju’s 18 points. The next night, the Lady Lancers knocked off St. Joseph 41-34 as Perez posted a careerhigh 11 points with Lateju, Griffin-McNair and junior guard Christina Batarse all scoring eight points. In the 52-38 semifinal loss to South Torrance, Lateju scored 11 points, followed by 10 from Griffin-McNair and nine from Perez. “If we don’t wake up then everybody is going to find out that all they have to do is pick us up high and play us hard and take us out of our rhythm,” Drake said. “I think we’ll learn from this and we’ll practice to fight this. But we also can’t challenge ourselves to practice like these two teams are able to challenge us.”

SARAVIA’S HAT TRICK LEADS GAHR PAST CERRITOS By Loren Kopff There has been very little to cheer about lately when it comes to the Cerritos and Gahr boys soccer programs. Cerritos has had 10 straight losing seasons, winning 44 games during that span while Gahr has found the win column 21 times since last playing in the California Interscholastic FederationSouthern Section playoffs six seasons ago. But when the two meet on the pitch, the agony of the futile seasons goes away and the city rivals know that one team will leave with smiles on their faces for at least one more year. This past Wednesday, the Gladiators left the Cerritos pitch with smiles for the third straight time as they walloped Cerritos 6-0 behind a hat trick from junior midfielder Kristian Saravia. Gahr evened its record at 1-1-1 with the tie coming on Nov. 30 against Suburban League power Norwalk in a 2-2 affair. This was the third straight time Gahr has dominated Cerritos, having won 5-1 last season and 4-1 in 2008. The two didn’t play in 2009. The last win for Cerritos over the boys from the north side of the city came in 2003, a 2-1 overtime decision. Before the 2004 meeting, Cerritos had won six of seven games against Gahr. “We have a big tradition playing against local teams,” said Gahr head

coach Jim Keating. “For me, I take ley League action. The Gladiators will every opponent seriously because those host Whitney on Monday, a school it can be slip-ups when you’re not taking has played only six times since 1998 opponents seriously. We’ll prepare but winning five of those meetings against Cerritos the same way we and tying the other.

The rout was on early as junior for“What’s exciting about that is we ward Daniel Fernandez scored his first didn’t get to play them last year,” goal of the season in the fourth minute. Keating said. “So for me, this is a big In the 13th minute, Saravia notches his opportunity to come back and play a second of the season and 11 minutes later, he got loose on a breakaway to make it 3-0. Gahr continued the pressure in the 29th minute when junior midfielder Fabian Gutierrez scored his second goal of the season. Then with four minutes remaining in the half, Saravia completed the hat trick. “Kristian came to us from Downey, so that’s always really interesting,” Keating said. “He’s a high quality player but he still has work to do on himself. He very much loves to dribble straight at defenses and that’s something we haven’t had as a team in a long time as a weapon.” The final tally for Gahr came with 11 minutes left in the game when sophomore midfielder William Jimenez found the back of the net for the September 13, 2011 first time this season.

team whose coach has coached [many of my players] on the club level. There is a huge familiarity and the players at Artesia know a lot of my players well because they are club teammates. I think my players are really up for that game. They are chomping at the bit. As for Cerritos, it dropped to 0-5-1 and has scored only two goals thus far. The Dons will host Lynwood today before wrapping up shop in 2011.

CRIME SUMMARIES CERRITOS SHERIFF’S STATION

December 5 - 11, 2011 There were 32 Part I felony investigations conducted by Cerritos Sheriff’s Station personnel last week, up from 28 the week before. Robberies and residential burglaries increased, vehicle theft remained the same, and commercial burglaries along with vehicle burglaries dropped. The current shopping month always generates additional theft cases as suspects are more frequently taken into custody by retail loss prevention. Calls for service last week also rose to 302 compared to 300 the previous reporting period. As we near the end of the year, the 2011 weekly average in that category is 272. There were two robberies reported. Two male suspects robbed two male victims at gunpoint on Wednesday December 7 at 7:55 p.m. in the 17600 block of Palo Verde Avenue. The victims had advertised electronic items for sale via a website and had arranged to sell them to the suspects. Cash and iPhones were taken. On Sunday December 11 at 9:10 p.m. two gun-wielding suspects entered a retail store in the Towne Center and demanded that multiple cashiers relinquish the contents of their cash registers. When the employees were unable to open them, the suspects fled without any money. Residential burglaries increased from three to seven last week.

doors or windows were involved in five of the crimes. One window was shattered, and a front door kicked in. TVs, laptop computers, clothing, cameras, cell phones, and cash were stolen. The 2011 weekly average in residential burglaries is 4.0. Many people like to display their Christmas tree in a front window where it can be shared with neighbors, and anyone walking by. Keep in mind that potential thieves can also be walking or driving by and that anything placed under the tree can be highly visible. Protect these items by not advertising that they are available when you leave the home. Commercial/“other structure” burglaries were down from two to one last week. A fitness center locker was targeted and gym bag, keys, ID, and a purse were missing. The 2011 weekly average in commercial/“other structure” burglaries is 2.9. Vehicle burglaries declined from 12 to 11. Only two of the vehicles last week were located in high-volume commercial parking lots. The others were in residential neighborhoods, and most of those vehicles were in driveways. Nine of the total last week involved Hondas. One was an SUV. Wallets, cash, CDs, makeup, laptop computers, dental tools, Postal Service uniforms, and an ash tray were some of the items taken. Two GPS units and a third-row seat (from an SUV) were also stolen. The 2011 weekly average in vehicle burglaries remained at 6.9.
