Norwalk Deputy Involved in Shooting Serving Search Warrant Ends in One Death, One Arrest Emiliano Amaya, dies inside his Pioneer Boulevard home during search for murder suspect Henry Bahena who was taken into custody By Randy Economy Homicide Bureau Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the deputy-involved shooting that occurred Thursday morning [Dec. 1] at the 11400 block of Pioneer Boulevard in Norwalk. Los Cerritos Community News has been told that the victim in the shooting was longtime Norwalk resident Emiliano Amaya. Investigators have learned at approximately 4:50 a.m., Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Bureau deputies assisted Sheriff’s Homicide detectives with the service of a search warrant to locate a murder suspect at the location on Pioneer Boulevard. The investigation and search warrant was related to the July 31, 2011, homicide of Rogelio Sanchez, which occurred less than two blocks from the Amaya home. Once inside the residence, Special Enforcement Bureau deputies made contact with the 39-year-old Amaya, who according to a statement issued by LASD on Thursday night “suddenly pointed a handgun at them.” Deputies fired several rounds at Amaya striking him. Amaya died at the scene. The primary suspect wanted in connection with the July 31 homicide of Sanchez, 31-year-old Henry Bahena was taken into custody without incident. was booked at Norwalk Sheriff’s Station for murder and is being held without bail. Deputy Benjamin Grubb of the LASD Media Headquarters said the investigation is “still in the initial stages.” Grubb would not confirm or deny to LCCN that Amaya was indeed the victim of the

LCCN Cares: Why are our children so FAT? By Randy Economy

It is noon time on a Tuesday morning, and thousands of kids throughout the ABC and Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School district’s head to the lunch line to take part in the daily ritual known as “the school lunch hour.” Laura Glenn, the Director of Nutritional Services for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District arrives at the Central Kitchen that is housed on the campus of Nettie L. Waite Elementary School to assess the production line that will result in the shipping more than 10,000 meals to more than 30 campus locations each and every day around the school calendar. Glenn glances down at the food that is being prepared by dozens of dedicated school district employees that within hours will be dished out at schools ranging from La Mirada High School to Arturo Sanchez Elementary School in Norwalk. On the day this interview was conducted by Los Cerritos Community News the food preparation staff was busy since sunrise preparing baked chicken (never fried, according to Glenn), mashed potatoes, grapes, a dinner roll as well as a choice of milk (including chocolate) and or fruit juice. docTODAY_AD10X3:Layout 1 6/14/11 10:58 Page 1 addition to those thousands of lunch [See SHOOTING page 10]PM In

La Palma Approves New Zoning Map By Larry Caballero

obesity here in our community, and what can be done to save our children from this “biggest health crisis” in generations.

The La Palma City Council approved a Zoning Map Amendment requiring the City to designate sufficient areas within its General Plan Housing Element to permit multifamily development at a minimum density of 20 units per acre. The action followed a recommendation byLa Palma’s Community Development Department Associate Planner Scott Hutter. Hutter said the Amendment was necessary to accommodate new housing units for lower-income households. He said the California Department of Housing and Community Development had already certified the project. Sites selected for consideration, given their location to an elementary school to the south, La Palma Avenue to the north and the Russell Estates (six-unit develop-

meals, a breakfast menu consisting of cold cereal and crackers, or yogurt and crackers, various pre packaged muffins, per purchased sausage sandwiches, pan dulce’ (Mexican sweet breads) and other “assorted items.” “A large percentage of our students would not get to have breakfast if we didn’t provide them with morning meals,” Glenn said. “We live in a fast food world,” she says begrudgingly. During the same day in which LCCN was preparing for this series on “Why are our kids getting so fat?” the California State Department issued a report on Physical Fitness Test results, that listed schools in Norwalk, Artesia and Hawaiian Gardens as having some of the most out of shape kids in the Golden State. In the areas of aerobic capacity, body composition, abdominal strength, upper body strength, and flexibility, students in NLMUSD and ABCUSD fall well below the passing grades, and some area schools rank near the bottom of the scale for schools here in Los Angeles County. Childhood obesity is spinning out of control in many areas within the greater Southeast Los Angeles County. Many experts now say the number one issue facing students today is not about getting top grades in Advanced Calculus or being accepted to Harvard or Yale, it’s about seeing if our children

On stage Mayor Mike Gomez welcomed the city residents. Families waited patiently in ine with their youngsters to visit with Santa Claus and receive a Christmas present from the jolly old elf and his helpers. Outside in the buildings south court-

COMMUNITYNEWS Olympia Chen Elected ABC Board President, Spitzer Named Vice President and Tse Board Clerk

78-YEAR OLD MAN STRUCK BY CAR AT DENNI STREET AND LA PALMA AVE

Members of the ABC Board of Education are (l-r) Lynda Johnson, James Kang, Celia Spitzer, Olympia Chen, Sophia Tse, Maynard Law, Superintendent Gary Smuts, and Armin Reyes.

By Jerry Bersntein Olympic Chen was elected 2011-12 ABC School Board President by her fellow Board members at the Board's Dec. 6 annual reorganization meeting. She succeeds Maynard Law. Elected Vice President was Celia Spitzer with Board Member Sophia Tse named Board Clerk. Boardmember Armin Reyes was originally slated to take over the Board’s Presidency, but announced at the last Board meeting he had been called back to active duty for one year by the Army with deployment in Afghanistan. In addition to the reorganization, newly-elected Board member Lynda Johnson was sworn in to a two year term, replacing Mark Pulido who resigned upon being elected to the Cerritos city council. Cerritos Mayor Pro Tem Jim Ed-

wards, Artesia Mayor Victor Manalo, Erin Stibel representing Supervisor Don Knabe, the office of State Senator Alan Lowenthal, and Hawaiian Gardens Mayor Mike Gomez, presented Certificates of Recognition to outgoing President Maynard Law for his year in office. Board members described Law as the Captain of the Ship who guided them through rough waters and dangerous seas this past year. Law responded his year as President has been the worst of times and the best of times, describing the fiscal storms the district faced, adding he had a good board to work with. Mayor Gomez, who was presenting Law with his Certificate of Recognition commented, “You should have my Board,” at which time the packed room broke into laughter and then applauded the Mayor.

By Randy Economy A 78-year old man was stuck by a car at approximately 7:50 a.m. at the intersection of La Palma Avenue and Denni Street in La Palma. The victim, whose name has not been released, was initially treated at the scene and then transported to the University of California Irvine Medical Center where he is currently listed in serious condition, according to La Palma Police Department Sgt. Raul Morales. Morales told Los Cerritos Community News that the driver of the car involved has not been sited but the “in-

vestigation is still in the early stages.” The intersection along the heavily travelled La Palma Avenue around Denni Street was closed throughout the morning and into the early afternoon and was diverted into local residential neighborhoods. Morales said that La Palma PD responded quickly to the scene and a mobile command site was set up and community volunteers assisted in traffic detail. The area is located to the immediate south east of Cerritos Regional Park and west of Luther Elementary School at the Orange and Los Angeles County border.

COMMUNITYNEWS LA MIRADA NEIGHBORHOOD LOCKDOWN RESULTS IN DEATH OF GUNMAN BY SELF INFLICTED WOUNDS By Randy Economy Walter Stewart, 49, of La Mirada has been positively identified as the man who died as a result of a self inflicted gunshot wound after a day long standoff at his residence last Friday at 15966 Aleciras Drive. The day long drama played out in the La Mirada neighborhood that is located next to Los Coyotes Middle School after Stewart began shooting a gun into the air near the campus around 7:23 am Friday morning. Norwalk Sheriff’s Station deputies received a call about "shots fired" at the location. When deputies arrived they were immediately advised by Stewart’s female roommate that he had shot himself and that he had a history of suicide attempts. After deputies arrived, they saw what appeared to be blood outside the residence. They contained the location, surrounded the neighborhood and requested Special Weapons and Tactics deputies from the Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Bureau to respond. Norwalk Sheriff's Captain Patrick Maxwell told LCCN that his main concern was the "safety of the community" and to determine where the gunman was located. As a precaution, deputies assisted Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District officials with evacuation nearly 400 students at Los Coyotes Middle School that is located at 14640 Mercado Avenue.

East Playground Improvements Underway at Cerritos Park

Officials at the Superintendent's Office at NLMUSD told LCCN that the school was placed on a "mandatory lock down" at around 8 a.m. and that no students or visitors were allowed in or off the campus" until the campus was inspected by law enforcement. Maxwell said that students were escorted "classroom by classroom" through a "safe passage" opposite where the incident was unfolding near the campus and successfully transported the students, faculty and school personnel to the gym at nearby La Mirada Regional Park, at 13810 La Mirada Boulevard. Numerous requests were made to the barricaded Stewart to exit the house and surrender throughout the ordeal; however he refused to comply with their orders. Volleys of tear gas were then sent into the location, to no avail. Several times during the standoff, the Stewart fired several rounds out of the house, the last shot being fired at approximately 12:50 pm. At 4:50 p.m., when the final volley of tear gas failed to get Stewart to exit his residence, members of the Sheriff's Department's Special Enforcement Bureau used an Armored Response Vehicle to remove the door of the house and deputies entered the location. Once inside, deputies found Steward’s lifeless body with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. A gun was recovered. According to a statement released by the LA Sheriff’s Department Media Bureau, no shots were fired during the incident.

Gravel piles up at Cerritos Park East main playground as workmen upgrade the play area. Playground improvements include replacement of the play equipment at the main playground and a smaller playground on the east side of the park, plus removal and replacement of the existing playground surface with rubberized concrete in the fall zone around each piece of play equipment. In addition, new colored concrete walkways and new turf areas for the main

playground are being installed The Council awarded $178,654 to Creative Contractors, of which a Los Angeles County Regional Parks and Open District Grant will fund $150,000 for the playground improvements. The City will pay for the balance of $28,654. . In addition four new disabled access ramps at the intersection of Acoro Street and Alora Avenue, south of Gahr High School will also be built, at a cost of $8,760.

Cerritos Council Approves Sculpture of Mahatma Gandia for New Office Building By Jerry Bernsteiin The Cerritos City Council approved a bronze sculpture of Mahatma Gandia for a new law office building on the southwest corner of Alondra Boulevard and Carmenita Road. Assistant City Manager Kathleen Jung Matsumoto said as part of the new building’s approval, the owners, the Chugh Firm, are required to commit one percent t of the total building permit valuation in the form of a monetary contribution to the Arts in Public Places Trust Fund or artwork to be placed in the city of an equal value.

MAYOR'S COLUMN

M

y year as the Mayor of the City of Artesia is ending, and, as I think about transitioning back to my role as a Member of the City Council, I Artesia Mayor have mixed emoVictor Manalo tions. I am proud to have had the opportunity to serve my constituents as the Mayor during a very difficult economic year, but I am gravely concerned about the state’s financial health and the impact this will continue to have on our city. Our redevelopment agency, our revenues, and our public schools are at risk. As I began my term as Mayor in December of 2010, I was hopeful that, by this time, you would have seen major upgrades in our downtown area. Our redevelopment agency had approved multi-million dollar projects to improve our downtown with new street lighting, landscaping, and a new parking garage and to improve the Artesia Historical

District with a plaza linking the old Fire Station and the Museum. Alas, Governor Brown proposed to dissolve all city redevelopment agencies and the legislature agreed. Subsequently, the League of California Cities filed a lawsuit with the California Supreme Court, and we are waiting, with all redevelopment agencies, to see if the court rules in our favor, so that we can move forward with projects. If we are forced to dissolve our redevelopment agency, our businesses downtown and our city will continue to struggle with the economic downturn and decreased revenues. We have had to make cuts in our services and programs, due to the loss of sales tax revenue. Unfortunately, there is no indication that the economy will pick up anytime soon. We will need to consider solutions to our revenue problem, and we will need the help of our residents to ensure that we will continue to provide the services and programs they count on. While I am thankful that we live in the ABC Unified School District, where

our children can attend high-quality schools, California’s public education system is in serious trouble. California’s budget revenues are lower than expected, and this will trigger devastating cuts to public education at all levels. Right now, it is estimated that K-12 education will be cut by $1.4 billion and that the University of California and California State University systems will be cut $100 million each. It will be very difficult to maintain our public schools with these large cuts. As an Associate Professor at California State University, Los Angeles, I have seen how the cuts to our budget have affected my students. Over the past five years, their tuition has doubled! Many of my students are the first in their families to attend a university. They work their way through school, and they have family

responsibilities. Raising their tuition in this way discourages and prevents many from completing their degrees. Because of the budget cuts to our campus, we have had to lay off part-time teachers, which means that we cannot offer all of the classes that students need to graduate, so it will take students even longer to graduate! The quality of public education is of primary concern to Artesia and to all of us. We need to ensure that our kids will be well-educated and successful. Now is the time to act and to get involved. You need to let us know what your priorities are because we will be facing some very difficult decisions, especially if our revenues continue to dwindle. I conducted four town hall meetings this past year, and I hope more Artesians will come out to find out what is happening in our city and how you can help.

OPINION & LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Returning books on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, it was a shock to see a group of three Muslim’s proselyting for Islam outside of the entrance to the Cerritos Public Library. At the side near the bicycle rack, there was a well-dressed woman Coming to the wearing a headscarf, seated by a small table, covered with Islamic pamphlets. There was also a sign that read, “Save Al Our-An.” A tall man at each side of YOUR FAVORITE ENTERTAINERS, YOUR FAVORITE THEATER the table dressed in a dark business suit passed out the printed material, if anyone showed an interest. I received a pamphlet titled “Concept of God in Islam.” Several pages continued praising, “Allah the Merciful One and Only One.” At the back of the pages there were questions beginning with “Would you like to visit a Mosque? Receive more literature? Or Embrace Islam? It seemed very inappropriate by the Library and more than disturbed my American Peace of Mind. With permits required for almost anything in the City of Cerritos, I wondered how and where this dec 9 group obtained one?

CRIME SUMMARY LA MIRADA CRIME SUMMARY November 28 - December 4, 2011 Robbery: A robbery was reported on the 15900 block of Heron Ave. Cash was stolen from a male outside of a business. Aggravated Assault An incident by a known suspect was reported on the 15900 block of Algeciras Dr. This incident resulted in the evacuation of Los Coyotes Middle School's students and faculty to the La Mirada Gymnasium. The City, the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District and the Sheriff's Department worked cooperatively to ensure no students, staff or residents were harmed. Residential Burglary: Five residential burglaries were reported last week. Two separate incidents were reported on the 15400 block of Ashgrove Dr. Vacant homes were vandalized. Several cameras and other items were stolen from a residence on the 16100 block of Grayville Dr. A burglary reported on the 13000 block of Parise Dr had an unknown loss. Jewelry was taken from a home on the 14700 block of Calpella St. Vehicle Burglary: Two window smash burglaries were reported last week. A theft occurred on the 16100 block of Summershade Dr. Various items were taken. An incident was also reported on the 16100 block of Orsa Dr.

security of the door. Most of the residences in Cerritos had a regular single cylinder knob lock installed at the time the home was constructed. Take a look at yours. If you do not have a solid core door with a good deadbolt, it is time to update. Commercial burglaries also remained the same at three last week. A condo storage unit, a school, and a fitness center locker were targeted. Items reported stolen included computers, cell phones, ID, a TV, and a vacuum cleaner. The 2011 weekly average in commercial/“other structure” burglaries is 2.9. Vehicle burglaries dropped from 11 to five last week. Three were from high-volume commercial parking lots, and all five were SUVs. Property reported stolen consisted of CDs, sunglasses, purses, wallets, clothes, and third-row seats. The 2011 weekly average in vehicle burglaries remained at 6.7. All of the vehicles involved in the vehicle burglaries last week were SUVs. It is common knowledge that vans, pick-ups, and SUVs do not have a secure trunk space; therefore the owners will leave valuable items inside the passenger compartment. Keep this in mind if you drive one of these vehicles, and make sure that you do not leave anything of value inside. Vehicle thefts remained unchanged at six last week. Five were taken from high-volume commercial parking lots. Two SUVs, two Hondas, a Nissan, and a commercial trailer were stolen. The 2011 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 3.2.

COMMUNITYNEWS Assemblymember Greets Supporters With 'Mixed Emotions' By Larry Caballero

If you were to ask him what he plans to do in the immediate future, now that he will be termed out, he will say that he is preparing for his next campaign. Unfortunately for Mendoza, his next campaign isn’t until 2014 when State Senator Ron Calderon is termed out. As any elected official will tell you, two years is an eternity in politics. Since he will not be holding an elected office when he runs in 2014, Mendoza may have a difficult time raising campaign funds. He may also have problems garnishing much support from Democratic leaders in Sacramento since he had issues with all three of the Speakers of the Assembly who interacted with him in the five years he has been in the state legislature. Consequently, he never held a chairmanship for more than a few weeks before Speaker Karen Bass took it away from him after he had “paid to play” for a tidy sum of $70,000 to the Speaker’s coffers. Bass had requested at least that much in order to support Democratic candidates in other campaigns. Even though Mendoza is the Chair of the Latino Caucus, a position that is not officially recognized by the Rules Committee, Speaker John Perez has not been kind to him by significantly cutting his office budget and removing him from important legislative committees. Mendoza has also had difficulty retaining staff in his local office and in Sacramento where numerous staffers have either been terminated or left with nothing good to say about him. Mendoza’s wife Leticia is aware of the problems her husband may have in

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 Assemblymember “mixed emotions Tony Mendoza 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 Leadership had supported to bring additional revenue to the state. “You can count on me to do what I think is right for the cities that I represent,” said Mendoza. He also voiced concerns that there will be severe program cuts next year because of reduced revenue that will harm residents, and “even deeper cuts after that if the economy doesn’t imneighborhood ad:Layout 1 10/1/09 10:32 AM Page 4 prove.”

getting elected to another office, but her immediate concern is providing for the family, “and keeping me in the lifestyle that I have grown accustomed.” She said that he needs to start looking for a job and wasn’t sure if he would be able to go back into teaching right away. Mendoza had been an elementary school teacher for ten years before being elected to the assembly in 2006.

Continued from page 1 shooting. Marian Amaya , mother of Emiliano, spoke to Los Cerritos Community News on Monday She said she was “searching for answers, but I also have to prepare for my son’s funeral”. The 59-year-old long time resident of Norwalk, who goes by the nickname of “Mom” to several of her friends, neighbors and former co-workers called the event “pure horror.” “They shot my son, they shot my son,” Amaya said. Henry Bahnea, had been staying with the Amaya family for the past “several months,” according to both Amaya and her daughter Stephanie, age 28. “We had no idea that Henry (Bahena) was wanted

for murder, and trust me, if we would have known, he wouldn’t be allowed near our home, let alone be staying here,” Amaya said. The Amaya household has nearly 10 family members who live in the home that includes sons Emiliano, 39, son David, 38, daughter Gloria, 21, and son Joseph, 21. Also living at the home is four young children under the age of seven, including a toddler. Bahena was taken into custody without incident. He was booked at Norwalk Sheriff’s Station for murder and is being held without bail.” Stephanie Amaya said that she had left the family home at “around 4:30 a.m.” to take a friend to work and she “forgot to lock the front door.” Marian Amaya said that she was woken up when Sheriff’s deputies “banged on the door

Los Angeles County’s top health official Dr. Jonathan Fielding, MD, who is the Director of Public Health said that “the continuing epidemic of childhood obesity is jeopardizing the future health and well being of our children.” Fielding also said that “childhood obesity is both a national and local crisis.” He pointed to a recent study that backs up his claim conducted by the Office of Health Assessment and Epidemiology from LA County that now confirms that one in five of 5th, 7th and 9th graders are now obese, and,

the results are even more devastating for those same students in those three grades that were tested in Hawaiian Gardens, Artesia and Norwalk. According to the study, Hawaiian Gardens, student’s rank 124th out of 128 incorporated municipalities in LA County for obesity prevalence. The children of Norwalk came in 104th in the study and if you’re a 5th, 7th or 9th grader in Norwalk you weighed in at number #80 on the list. Students in Monrovia, Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Beverly Hills, and San Marino have to most “in shape students” in those three grade levels. Cerritos students ranked 33 on the list. The only areas to rank lower than Hawaiian Gardens were the middle grade students in Irwindale, West Carson and Maywood.

CHILD OBESITY

Continued from page 10 “We need to rethink how we can get our children moving on campus each and every day,” asserted Glenn to Los Cerritos Community News for this series. She also said that parents need to get more actively involved in the diets of their children, learn healthy eating habits, avoid “fast food” places to eat, and to “pull the computer games out of our kids hands, and make them walk for at least 20 minutes each and every day.” On a national level, more than onethird of adults, (72 million people) and 17% of our children are now obese, according to the Center for Disease Control out of Atlanta. Alexander Khananshili, a world renowned expert of obesity is now focusing his efforts on behalf of Tri-Cities Medical Center in Hawaiian Gardens. Khananshili, an expert on nutrition is alarmed that during 1980 to 2008 obesity rates doubled for adults and tripled for children. He is especially alarmed with the number of obese children under the age of 18 who live in Hawaiian Gardens. “It is real simple, obesity is out of control,” he told LCCN in a sit down interview on Thursday. “It is going to take an all out effort between our local elected city council members, school board members, school administration and city administrators to declare obesity what it is, out of control,” Khananshili said. Next: Do our schools contribute to child obesity? Who makes the decisions on what is served on our local campuses to our children?

Continued from page 10 and yelled LA County Sherriff’s, search warrant, everyone down,” she claims. She said that her son and Bahena came out of the bedroom where they were sleeping and entered the kitchen area at the rear of the large home when one member of the search party “pointed a gun at Emiliano” and “just started to fire.” She also claims that Henry Bahena threw “himself” on top of her son “while he was being shot” and that is when she started to scream hysterically “the shot my son, they shot my Nano.” Marian said that Bahena was arrested inside the kitchen after the shooting. “It was surreal, and my son’s blood was everywhere,” she exclaimed. Bahena, who according to arrest records is being held at Men’s Central Jail in Downtown Los Angeles, and is expected to appear in Bellflower Court at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, December 16 at 8:30 a.m. He is being held without a bail amount due to the fact that it is a murder charge in which he is facing. Los Cerritos Community News has also learned that Bahena was arrested in Norwalk on October 24 shortly after midnight and was arrested on felony charges. During that arrest, Sheriff’s authorities confirmed to LCCN that Bahena had a concealed weapon in his possession and that he was also had prior felony convictions. He posted a $35,000 bail hours after he was arrested and appeared in Bellflower Superior Court on October 26, according to information provided by the LASD. “My son wasn’t wanted for anything, and he didn’t deserve to get shot three times in our kitchen in the middle of the

night,” Marian Amaya said. The mother also told Los Cerritos Community News that her son “didn’t have anything in his hands” and that the only weapon in the house was a rusty “40 year old part of a gun” that she claims was found “buried deep inside a hall closet.” Both mother and daughter Stephanie told LCCN that they did not have “any idea” that Bahena had been recently arrested in Norwalk and did not have “specific any knowledge” about his “background or past.” Each of the members of the family were escorted out of the home, most in handcuffs, and placed in the back of Sheriff’s cars, she said. “They handcuffed me, and put me in the back of the squad car for almost three hours.” Marian Amaya also said that she had a “gut instinct” that her shot was dead from the gun shots because ambulances that had been dispatched to her Pioneer Boulevard stayed outside. They said that law enforcement was at their home for “nearly 10 hours.” Marian Amaya said her son grew up in Norwalk “his entire life” and was a graduate of Santa Fe High School in the Class of 1991. She said Emiliano was a standout wrestler in high school and competed in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) championship’s three years. “He one of the smallest kids on the team, he only weighed 119 pounds in high school, and was the light of my life,” the mother recalled. “He would give his shirt off his back to help someone in need,” she said. Emiliano also has an “average student” in high school that “struggled with his grades,” but “proudly graduated when

most would have quit school. According to family members, Emiliano lost his first son just 13 days after he was born due to a rare medical condition. His mother said he also has a second son who has “severe learning and processing disabilities” who is now 16 years old, who lives with other family members outside of Norwalk. “How do you tell a child that his father is gone when he has such developmental issues, this is going to be devastating for him if he will be able to even comprehend the situation,” she said. The family is in the process of raising funds to pay for the expenses for the funeral, and have had a “great outpouring” of support from close family friends “and others in the community.”

LADY LANCERS WIN SCHOOL’S SECOND PRESEASON TOURNAMENT, ROLL PAST PARAMOUNT By Loren Kopff WHITTIER-For the past four seasons, the first week of the regular season had found the Norwalk girls basketball team in the Downey Tournament. But this season, head coach Richard Drake decided to try something new and it paid off. The Lady Lancers went on a 13-0 run in the first quarter, then began the fourth quarter on another 13-0 run as they dismantled Paramount 64-33 in the championship game of the Pioneer Tournament last Saturday night. It marked the second time in school history, both times under Drake’s watch, that the program has won a preseason tournament. In Drake’s first season as head coach, Norwalk took home the championship of the Downey Tournament. Following the contest, there were plenty of cheers from the players as well as parents and friends, who cascaded from the bleachers to take photos of the team. But when Drake told the team in his postgame meeting that it was ranked first in the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Division III-AAA rankings according to MaxPreps.com, the girls showed no emotion. That’s probably because the team had a chance to blow out the Pirates early in the second half. But Drake pointed out that the third quarter was the typical, ‘let the air out of the balloon’ syndrome. Norwalk scored nine points in the third

quarter but turned a 43-26 lead into a 57-26 rout late in the fourth quarter.

think it takes time to learn how to do all of this.”

“This was a goal,” Drake said. “Just like I do my preseason stuff to lead into the Suburban League season, I picked this tournament to get us going. We needed this to build confidence to go into a tougher tournament next week. I fully expect to be in no less than the semifinals next week.”

As bad as the third quarter was, the fourth was as good as it can get. The Lady Lancers missed three of 11 shots from the field and got contributions from virtually everyone on their roster. Senior center Nia Lateju, who was named the tournament’s most valuable player, finished with nine points, seven rebounds and four steals. Senior point guard Larissa Perez, who was named to the all-tournament team, added nine points, five assists and five steals while junior forward Jazzlyn Gaxiola came off the bench to score eight points and pull down three rebounds.

The Lady Lancers began the Glenn/ Norwalk Tournament this past Wednesday against Pioneer but last Saturday, they set the tone early by scoring 19 points in the first quarter behind half a dozen points from junior guard Cristina Batarse, who ended up with a careerhigh 11 points. After Paramount’s Kyla Hayman scored the first points of the second quarter, Norwalk went on a 9-0 run to lead by 20 points, which would be its halftime margin. But the third quarter was the bugaboo for the team that’s favored to challenge Mayfair for a Suburban League title. Norwalk shot one of 10 from the field and missed 11 free throws in the stanza as that 20-point lead could not get greater than 23 points until the final quarter. “They haven’t learned how to [put away teams] yet,” Drake said. “Half of this team is last year’s junior varsity team which won the [league] championship. But at this level, it’s a little harder. I think they will learn how to do that. I

“That’s a mental thing,” Drake said. “I tell them they have to block everything out. They have to just physically block it out and do their thing. Right now there are too many distractions.” Norwalk began the tournament on Nov. 28 with a 50-32 win against Bell Gardens behind a career-high 21 points from Lateju and nine from Batarse. The next day, Norwalk crushed El Rancho 56-28 with Lateju scoring 12 points. The third game was a 48-27 decision over Gabrielino as Lateju scored 13 points followed by 10 from junior forward Maiya Griffin-McNair. But the key to the early success has been on the defensive side where the Lady Lancers had 81 steals in the four games, paced by Griffin-McNair (18), Batarse (13), Lateju (11) and Perez (10). “This team is going to win or lose according to our defense,” Drake said. “The defense is going to make this offense come to life. That’s what I’m counting on.”

In addition to not putting away Paramount much sooner, the other negative was the free throw shooting where the Lady Lancers connected on 12 of 29 charity shots.

John Glenn was also in the tournament and didn’t fare too well last Saturday, falling to El Rancho 39-26 in the third place game. El Rancho scored the first 12 points of the game and the Lady Eagles didn’t score until the 2:05 mark of the opening quarter when senior Moshannae Summerise put back an offensive rebound. Glenn then went another 6:20 before scoring again. After senior Kimberly Orozco, who was

named to the all-tournament team, and sophomore Myra Gomez opened the second half with back to back baskets, Glenn went scoreless for the final 6:08 of the third quarter. Orozco led Glenn with 10 points while Summerise added half a dozen. Glenn knocked off Pioneer 38-25 on the first day of the tournament as Summerise scored a career-high 17 points and Gomez another 10. The next day, Glenn fell to Paramount 35-32 with Summerise scoring 14 points. The biggest win for Glenn came on Nov. 30 as junior Angie Console, senior Patty Santana and Summerise all scored nine points in a 38-22 victory over Alhambra.

SECOND TEAM OFFENSE

Offensive Player of the Year-Records continue to be broken at Gahr and the Gladiators will surely miss senior wide receiver Dwayne Washington, who leaves as the school’s all-time single season touchdown leader. Washington found the end zone 15 times and caught 66 passes for 1,338 yards.

OH-Daisy Briseno (Artesia)

Defensive Player of the Year-Valley Christian’s defense may have allowed 33 points a game but that didn’t stop senior linebacker David Coley from having a solid season. Coley was second on the team with 68 tackles, tied for first with five sacks and had a pair of interceptions.

Player of the Year-Cerritos senior Susan Suski became the latest Lady Don to win this award after she helped guide the team to at least a share of its third straight Suburban League championship. Suski was one of four seniors on the team as the program will continue its league dominance.

Coach of the Year-Last season, Valley Christian’s Erick Streelman missed the playoffs for the first time in his five seasons at his alma mater. But he rebounded from starts of 0-4 and 1-5 to advance to the postseason and guided his team to a 4-7 record which included a chance to win the Olympic League title on V.C.’s last regular season game.

Coach of the Year-Norwalk’s 7-9 record may not seem all that impressive but the only thing that matters is going to the playoffs and that’s what Quoc Nguyen accomplished. In just his second season at Norwalk, Nguyen put the Lady Lancers in the playoffs for the first time since 2005 and rebounded from a 2010 campaign that saw the team win only one match.

COMMUNITYNEWS CERRITOS LIBRARY VIDEO WINS NATIONAL AWARD The National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA) recently presented the City of Cerritos with a First Place Award for a video highlighting the award-winning Cerritos Library. The program, “Cerritos Library: Experience America’s Best Public Library,” received the Government Programming First Place Award in the Library Video category. The video can be viewed on the City’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/CityofCerritos. The program also airs on Cerritos TV3, the City’s government access cable television channel. The Government Programming Awards recognize excellence in broadcast, cable, multimedia and electronic programming produced by local government agencies. Mayor Carol Chen said, “Cerritos is proud to be the home of America’s best public library, and it is an honor to receive such a prestigious award for the Library video produced by City staff,”

ment) to the east were 5052 La Palma Avenue and 5062 La Palma Avenue The 7822 Denni Street property, which is identified in the inventory of available residential housing sites, was considered inadequate given its very linear shape and smaller size. Hutter said the only other sites in the City that were similar in size would be 7601 and 7621 Walker Street, which are surrounded by single-family properties and a development at 20 units per acre would not transition well at this location. “The two properties at 5052 and 5062 La Palma Avenue on the other hand work much better given the difference in the type and intensities of surrounding uses,” Councilmember Hwangbo was not so sure. “What is the sense of urgency?’ he asked. Hwangbo was concerned that the developers could choose to build up to 15 units on the sites. Hutter explained that if the Resolution were not approved, the City could face sanctions from the Department of Housing and be ineligible for housing funding in the future. “Litigation from watch dog groups is also a consideration.” Hwangbo said he still had a problem with it because it would allow multi-rental properties in the center of the City. Councilmember Mark Waldman said he would vote to adopt the Resolution and said, “I believe localities should control their own land use.” Mayor Ralph Rodriguez said that it was better to be proactive and felt the Resolution “would meet our housing needs.” The Resolution was passed on a 4-1 vote with Hwangbo voting the lone no vote.
