HMG EXCLUSIVE: EMPLOYEE ACCUSES CENTRAL BASIN DIRECTOR BOB APODACA OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT & RETALIATION BY BRIAN HEWS Hews Media Group-Los Cerritos Community News has obtained a letter addressed to Abel Salinas, the Chief Ethics Officer for the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) of Southern California, from a MWD employee accusing current Central Basin Municipal Water District Director and MWD Director Robert “Bob” Apodaca of sexual harassment, inappropriate touching, intimidation, and retaliation." The ethics office “operates as an independent entity. It is responsible for protecting employees filing complaints, the confidentiality of sources and the due-process rights of those accused of violating MWD’s own ethics rules. The employee, who submitted the letter anonymously, said that Apodaca was

“creating a hostile working environment” inside the massive agency. The January 9, 2020 letter was also “carbon copied” to all MWD Directors, General Manager Jeffrey Kightlinger, and MWD attorney Marsha Scully, but a spokesperson for the MWD would not confirm or deny the letter was circulated. The two-page explicit letter describes in graphic detail the alleged perverted actions of Apodaca, who was accused of sexual harassment

in 2013 by Sigrid Lopez in a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, case number BC528184. HMG-LCCN was first to report on the complaint and eventual settlement, exclusively obtaining the settlement agreement, and later the actual investigation documents, that graphically detailed Apodaca’s exploitation of Lopez. That case was settled for $670,000 using a Mutual Settlement and Release where Apodaca did not admit guilt and

Lopez promised not to take any further actions. The actual cost was much more, as the settlement took many months with sources inside Central Basin saying the entire cost to ratepayers was upwards of $800,000. The accusations in the MWD letter are eerily similar to what Lopez alleged Apodaca did and said to her in 2012-’13, including taking her shopping and showering her with gifts, his exploits while working for Coors Brewing, asking about the employees’ marital status, how his relationship with his common-law wife Caroline had deteriorated, how he takes Viagra, inappropriate comments and unwanted touching. The complainant first alleged that Apodaca on “various occasions made

LA MIRADA CANDIDATES MORSE & FOWLER USING SAREGAS TO ‘TAKE OVER’ CITY COUNCIL

LAKEWOOD OUTLINES MAJOR BUDGET CUTS IF TAX MEASURE DOES NOT PASS

BY BRIAN HEWS

At their Feb. 11 meeting, the City Council began reviewing the budget cuts needed if Measure L is not enacted by voters. The city’s budget is approximately $50 million a year, $10 million in cuts will be necessary if it does not pass. The City looked at reductions in the number of Deputy Sheriffs protecting Lakewood, including the Special Assignment Officers who target crime hot-spots, such as increased burglaries or auto thefts in a neighborhood. Reductions in the support staff that assist Deputies with crime scene fingerprinting and other services that improve the apprehension of criminals in Lakewood. Reductions in the staff that maintain parks and city facilities, including less frequent restroom cleaning, less frequent mowing of athletic fields, and less frequent cleaning of parks. Reductions in the hours that parks are lit and supervised at night, meaning fewer hours for recreational sports and higher risks for criminal activity in the parks. Reductions in the staff at senior and community centers, meaning fewer activities at those facilities.

It’s campaign silly season in La Mirada as the usual suspects emerge , with the help of La Mirada City Councilman Andrew Sarega and his dad Ion, the two latest Sarega clones are District 5 candidate Matt Morse and District 4 candidate Jackie Fowler. Seems as if Tony Aiello wasn’t available. Sources around the city are telling the Lamplighter that this is an effort by Sarega to gain the majority on the City Council. This while Sarega is still under a California Fair Political Practices Commission investigation for campaign finance violations; the investigation “remains open” as of Jan 13, 2020, according to FPPC spokesman Jay Wierenga. Fowler is not trying to hide her allegiance to the Saregas; according to recently filed campaign finance reports, Fowler took $1,450 in campaign advertising materials as a donation from the Saregas. The only other money the Fowler campaign has taken in is a $1,590 loan from Fowler herself.

North American Aviation Dedication Ceremony At Columbia Memorial BY TAMMYE MCDUFF A dedication ceremony was held at the Columbia Memorial Space Center on Friday, February 7th honoring the employees of North American Aviation / Downey, who developed and built the spacecraft responsible for placing Americans on the moon. Many retirees attended the event that included informal and entertaining speeches from more than 60 former employees. State Senator Bob Archuleta attended the event and honored the retirees The blessing of the benches was performed by Chuck Landry an NAA retiree. Landry recalled a story about Mike Collins, who flew the Apollo 11 command module around the moon. Collins wrote an inscription on the wall of the module, and it has only recently been discovered, it read “Spacecraft 107, alias Apollo 11, Columbia to us, the best ship to come down the line. God Bless her.” The history of the benches began with Nolan Leatherman, a former North American Aviation employee, who often visited the National Museum of the Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and was dismayed when he saw monuments to other plane manufacturers but none mentioning North American Aviation. “Many of the planes on display at Wright-Patterson were made at North American Aviation,” Leatherman said.

After a particular day on which a fleet of B-25 planes, known as “Tokyo Raiders”, the aircraft that flew in the Doolittle Raid of April 18, 1942, the first Allied airstrike on mainland Japan in World War II, flew into Wright-Patterson, Leatherman reached out to Ed Rusinek, editor of a national publication for North American Aviation retirees, and together solicited donations from employees to install a granite bench at Wright-Patterson. The first bench placed at WrightPatterson was dedicated in August 2013 and the fundraising effort was so successful that additional benches were made and installed at other military museums in the United States. The two benches that silently sit in front of the Columbia Space Museum are made of black granite and covered with etchings and images of projects from Vultee to Rocketdyne with the slogan “Where the Best Never Rest”. North American Aviation design and built many aircraft including the T-28, F-86, B-45, F-100, F-107, X-10, X-15 and XB-70, all of which were flight tested at Edwards AFB. They contributed to the Apollo program building the second stage of the Saturn V rocket, its F-1 and J-2 engines, and the Apollo space capsule that took us to the moon and the Space Shuttle that followed. The benches were donated to the space center by NAA retirees and Financial Partners Credit Union.

NORWALK HOSTS MAYOR'S PRAYER BREAKFAST

SENATOR BOB ARCHULETA representative, Tony Perez, presents a certificate of congratulations to Norwalk City Mayor Margarita Rios commemorating the City’s 50th Annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast.

The City of Norwalk held its annual Mayor’s prayer breakfast this past Wednesday while also marking the event’s 50th year. Hosted by the Door of Hope Youth and Family Resource Center, the event’s theme of “Love is the Bridge Towards Healing: Lead the Path” was held at the DoubleTree Hotel and was attended by over 200 local residents and members of the clergy. The keynote address was delivered by Deputy Lori Kammer of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department who recounted, to the overflow crowd, her harrowing experience in surviving the October 17, 2017 Las Vegas shooting and subsequent support she and her fam-

ily received from the Norwalk community en route to her recooperation. Kammer recalled her initial reaction to having been shot in the hip which she initially likened it to a painful bee sting only to later experience a level of pain she “wouldn’t wish on anybody.” She recalled, with emotion, the ongoing support she received from her colleagues and urged the mesmerized crowd to visit the victim’s memorial when they next visit Las Vegas. “This is one of the highlights and most uplifting events of the year,” Perez noted. “Deputy Kammer’s recount of hers, and her husband’s, experience really inspired those in attendance to appreciate each and every day.”

Patented CBD Products Deemed 'Game Changers' New products use Liposomal Technology, achieving an absorption rate of up to 95%. BY BRIAN HEWS Startup CBD and vitamin supplement company Vasayo emerged on the health and wellness scene less than three years ago and, after only two years, earned an award as one of the “Top 50 Healthcare Companies in the World” by the International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare. Vasayo’s patented CBD One products are THC Free, Non-GMO, Organic Compliant. All products are produced entirely in the US, from plant to package. With an array of cannabidiol-based items flooding the market with products displayed for sale everywhere from 7-11 Stores to Big 5 Sporting Goods locations, CBD has emerged as an intriguing product credited with improving lives and supporting health from the brain to the skin to the urinary tract, just to name a few noted benefits. However, the hemp plant that CBD is derived has been around for thousands and thousands of years. According to local Vasayo product representative Lily Martini, the global community has rediscovered the power of hemp, and public opinion has swung

open the door to its uses. Martini claims that financial forecasters have projected that by 2022, the hemp market is projected to be worth $22 billion. Vasayo states their edge in becoming the leader of the pack with their product offerings is their patented delivery system, something Vasayo calls “the liposome advantage”. Liposomal technology was actually developed in the early 60’s to facilitate the delivery of chemotherapy to cancer patients. It was discovered that when ingredients were introduced into the body coated in a protective Liposomal membrane, liposomes protected those nutrients during the digestive process and improved its absorption/bioavailability. The result, nutrients pass through the harsh environment of the digestive system intact for optimal absorption and use by the body, at up to a rate of 95%. Martini also points out that CBD isn’t the only products that Vasayo produces that benefit from the use of liposomal technology. In fact, she said that Vasayo actually first produced a successful line of vitamin supplements before they developed their two CBD products, a cream and a tincture oil form. According to Martini, Vasayo’s vitamin supplements sell at the same pace as its much-touted CBD One line as a result of the high absorption rate provided by its patented liposomaldelivery technology. For example, Martini claims that Vasayo’s Sleep Micromyst product is one of her top-sellers.

Los Cerritos Community News - LosCerritosNews.net

That is followed by their organic superfood blend multivitamin/mineral complex called Core Complete, as well as their Renew Mircogel improving joint health are all her customer’s favorites. Martini shared that her and many members of her local Southern California brand partner sales team just returned from Vasayo’s annual product conference in Orlando, FL and returned with their newest items, a liposomal-delivered line of beauty products referred to as Beleza. Martini says that what’s so exciting about these new skin and beauty products is that the owner of the liposomal technology patent for the products is none other than the one-and-only Warren Buffet who personally selected Vasayo’s as its exclusive marketing

partner. Martini recognizes that some consumers have commented that Vasayo’s products seem to-good-to-be -true, so she recommends that customers call to ask her questions. Customers can find Vasayo’s website at www.vasayocbd.store where they can try the products to experience the patented liposome advantage for themselves. She also proudly points out that roughly half of her ‘brand partners” started off as retail customers who now take advantage of Vasayo’s distribution program, especially Vasayo newly launched Veterans Program with its accompanying exclusive Rewards Plan.

INDOOR GARDEN SUCCESS WITH PROPER WATERING

SET PLANTS on saucers filled with pebbles. The excess water collects in the tray and the pebbles elevate the container above the water to eliminate the need to empty the water that collects in the saucer.

BY MELINDA MYERS Too much of a good thing can mean death for indoor plants. Overwatering is a good example of this and a common problem for indoor gardeners. For others it’s the opposite extreme, allowing plants to go too dry. Knowing when to water your indoor plants can increase gardening success and eliminate the stress of uncertainty. The first step is to throw away your watering schedule. Start watering plants based on their individual need not the date on the calendar. Consider the type of plant, container material and size as well as other growing conditions. Get to know your plants by checking the plant tag, online resources and books. Those native to tropical climates or wet soils such as peace lily, baby tears and papyrus prefer moist soil. Plants from drier locations like cacti, succulents, Chinese evergreens, ponytail palm and snake plants do best when the soil dries between watering. Evaluate the indoor growing conditions. Plants located in bright light and warm homes where the humidity is low lose moisture faster and need more frequent watering. Cooler homes, higher humidity and lower light conditions mean longer stretches between watering plants. Adjust watering as the seasons change. Shorter, often gray days of winter mean plants dry out more slowly. When the heat and air conditioner are turned on, the humidity level drops and plants dry out more quickly. Plus, many plants rest in winter and prefer drier soil. Check plants growing in small pots, breathable terra cotta containers and fast draining growing mixes more often and water as needed. Plants growing in larger containers and those made of plastic, glazed ceramic and similar materials dry out more slowly. Use your finger to determine when plants need to be watered. Stick your finger an inch or so below the soil surface of small pots. You’ll need to go a finger length deep for larger containers.

And for succulents and cacti feel the soil through the drainage holes on the bottom of the pot. Water thoroughly until the excess runs out the drainage holes as needed. Extend the time between watering with self-watering pots and watering aids. These have reservoirs that slowly provide water to plants over time. Or amend the soil with a moistureretaining product like wool pellets (wildvalleyfarms.com). This organic and sustainable product holds 20% of its weight in water and slowly releases it into the soil when needed. The wetting agents in most potting mixes lose effectiveness after a month or two. These pellets continue working long after this, so you’ll be watering less often. Make watering easy, so it feels like an opportunity to enjoy each individual plant instead of a chore. Use a watering can with a long narrow spout, making it easy to apply water over the entire soil surface and under the leaves and crown of the plant. This reduces the risk of disease that can occur when the top growth remains wet. Set plants on saucers or trays filled with pebbles. The excess water collects in the tray and the pebbles elevate the container above the water. This eliminates the need to empty the water that collects and remains in the saucer for more than thirty minutes. With more experience watering indoor plants, it will become second nature. That means you’ll have more time and opportunity to enjoy and even expand your indoor garden. Melinda Myers has written more than 20 gardening books, including Small Space Gardening.

CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION BOYS BASKETBALL DIVISION 4 AA PLAYOFFS

Road warrior Norwalk squad stuns fourth-seeded St. Margaret’s behind starting unit BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO-The Norwalk High boys basketball team has played inside the friendly confines of its own gymnasium just three times since Dec. 9. Despite being on the road for

over 75 percent of the season, the Lancers and head coach Brent Campanelli don’t mind. Being on the road does have its perks and the Lancers used that to their advantage as they shocked St. Margaret’s High, the fourth-seeded team in the CIF-Southern Section’s Division 4 AA 60-48 this past Wednesday night, improving to 17-11. Norwalk, which finished in third place in the Suburban League, draws another road game tonight against Flintridge Prep. “That was a big focal point to start the year when we made the schedule,” Campanelli said. “So, I think that aspect of it helped us being prepared to be able to travel. Granted, we didn’t travel this far, but it definitely helped. We played

a tough non-league schedule; that’s for sure. We know what the Suburban League is like. So, we had to prep for that. These guys have worked so hard for three years. I wanted them to have the opportunity to get in. That’s why we had to put them on the road all year, and if they got in, we knew we would be going on the road. We want to keep playing for sure.” Norwalk’s last trip to the postseason, which came during the 2015-2016 campaign, was also the last time the program finished above .500 (14-13). The 17 victories are the most in over 21 seasons and this is the first time since the 2009-2010 season that any Norwalk team has advanced to the second round of the playoffs. The Tartans never led in the contest and the game was tied just once, 2-2 almost three minutes in. At 7-5, the Lancers reeled off eight straight points to have their first double-digit lead with 5:23 remaining in the half. Norwalk’s suffocating defense caused the Academy League champions to turn the ball over 10 times in the first half and connect on six of 19 shots from the field in that time. The hosts would creep back and try to take control of the game by scoring nine straight points later in the second quarter. However, consecutive baskets from senior Chris Herrera and a buzzerbeating basket from senior Pablo Juarez enabled Norwalk to hold a 21-17 halftime lead. “I thought we might have an opportu-

nity to turn them over a little bit because they might not have seen the defense we were trying to run,” Campanelli said. “It sure it won’t be a secret anymore. But we took care of the basketball, and that comes down to [the] seniors.” Will Kenner opened the second half drawing the Tartans back to within a basket. But any chance of a second half rally was dashed when Norwalk reeled off nine straight point to lead 30-19 almost three minutes into the second half. Norwalk outscored St. Margaret’s by 10 points in the third quarter with all the scoring coming from its starters. While the Lancers didn’t shoot well either in the first half, Campanelli credits his starters and supporting cast as to is defensive performance through the first three quarters. “The simple answer is Kevin Garrett, Pablo Juarez, Chris Herrera, Jayden Williams, Miguel Fernandez, Julian Price,” Campanelli said. “I could keep going down the list. [Senior Armando Castellanos], [senior] Daniel [Recinos]; guys that played and the bench…every one of those guys were locked in for two days, and they stuck to the game plan. They took more charges tonight than I think we took all of January, and bottom line, it was on them and that’s why we got it done.” Senior Kevin Garrett matched his career-high of 19 points that he set five days prior against Bellflower High and had six rebounds and two steals. Herrera added 18 points, grabbed five rebounds

JOHN GLENN’S PLAYOFF DROUGHT ENDS WITH RARE POSTSEASON VICTORY, BLANKS LENNOX ACADEMY BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER The John Glenn High boys soccer program hasn’t had much history in the postseason since the school was founded in 1962. Before this season, Glenn had made 11 trips to the CIF-Southern Section divisional playoffs, winning just twice in 13 games. The Eagles last made it to the playoffs in 2012, first beating Burbank High 2-1 in double overtime in a wild card affair before falling to Saddleback High 3-2 (5-4 in penalty kicks) in the first round. Now, this season’s team is setting a new standard by shutting out visiting Lennox Academy 4-0 this past Monday evening in a Division 6 wild card tilt. “It’s what I’ve been telling the boys,” said Glenn head coach Hugo EncisoRojas. “Last season, we were also not too far away from the playoffs. I know this was our first goal ever since I took over the program; to make the playoffs. Not win CIF, but just make [the] playoffs, and then take it one step at a time. I’m really happy for them because now they know what it feels like to play a CIF game. Now they know what it feels like to win. So, we hope that they keep chasing that feeling and that they set the example for the future generations.” Glenn’s first playoff win came in 1985 following four consecutive playoff

TRANSITION FROM WINTER TO SPRING MEANS EXTREMELY BUSY TIME FOR ATHLETICS BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER While the CIF-Southern Section basketball and soccer divisional playoffs began at the beginning of the week, baseball and softball games begin on Saturday with the rest of the spring sports starting their seasons this upcoming week. Here’s a look of what’s on tap for the eight area schools in the upcoming week.

BOYS SOCCER Artesia High, ranked sixth in Division 4, blanked Crescenta Valley High 2-0 this past Wednesday in a first round game and will visit Culver City High today. The Pioneers, champions of the 605 League, improved to 16-3-3 and have not lost in 13 straight games. Cerritos High, which had not been to the playoffs since 2000, edged Pomona High 2-1 this past Monday in a Division 6 wild card game, then got past eighth ranked St. Genevieve High 3-2 two days later to improve to 9-12-2. The Dons, winners of four straight games and five of their last six, will host Charter Oak High today. The nine wins are the most for the program since the 2003-2004 season when that team went 9-15-3. The fourth ranked team in Division 3, Norwalk High, defeated California High 2-1 this past Wednesday in first round action. The Lancers (16-4-1), champions of the Suburban League,

losses from 1975-1984 and the program had been outscored 34-6 in its first eight playoff games. But against the Panthers, who finished in third place in the Coastal League, the Eagles went to work early in the second half. After a scoreless first half that saw Glenn take just four shots on goal, with the best chance coming in the 14th minute off the foot of junior midfielder Sergio Velez, senior midfielder Juan Prudencio’s attempt five minutes into the second half sailed off to the right. But five minutes later, and amidst a mad scramble in front of Lennox Academy’s Mauricio Munoz, senior defender Felix Perez found paydirt while on his back to make it 1-0. A minute later, Velez crossed a nifty pass to junior forward Edgar Ramirez and his header made it 2-0. Building off the sudden momentum, senior defender Enrique Mayen made it 3-0 in the 53rd minute. “Even though we did dominate, I don’t know if it was sluggish as much as the first CIF game jitters,” Enciso-Rojas said of the first half. “I think we were attacking, but we lacked the clarity in the last third and fourth of the field. I told the boys at halftime, ‘I think we are the better team. Now we have to get rid of the nerves, and I’m glad you guys are nervous because it means you care’. “Again, I think the nerves kind of distracted them from playing the way they normally play,” Enciso-Rojas later said. “A little bit more of a combination playing, and that got us there. And then set pieces were key, too. We worked hard on set pieces and in games like this, it makes a big difference.” Glenn clearly dominated the second half, taking 13 more shots and when the game had concluded, the Eagle had outshot the Panthers 17-4.

LA MIRADA from page 1

The Sarega/Aiello Circus is Back in Town In 2017 the Lamplighter reported on a wide-ranging dark money campaign finance controversy involving Andrew Sarega and his running mate Tony Aiello. The controversy involved an obscure committee called Residents for a Better La Mirada (RBLM) that attempted to influence the La Mirada City Council race. Campaign documents obtained by HMG-LML from the La Mirada City Clerk’s office showed large donations from a shady La Habra based construction company to RBLM. The money was used to slam District 1 candidate John Lewis and District 2 candidate and incumbent Pauline Deal with negative direct mail advertisements. Due to redistricting, Deal was running against incumbent Andrew Serega, while Lewis was running for the newly created District 1 against Tony Aiello and others. RBLM mailed out campaign “hit pieces� against Deal and Lewis to La Mirada residents in District 1 and District 2. Many La Mirada residents called and emailed HMG-LML angry with the mailers and the content that blasted Deal and Lewis. Sarega won, but Aiello lost miserably. The Lamplighter found that the offensive mailers were printed in Texas, at the Print Place, located at 1130 Avenue H East in Arlington. An examination of Fowler’s campaign finance documents show that she printed her advertising materials, including a door hangar, at the Print Place. In addition, it seems as if Fowler is hesitant to let La Mirada residents know who paid for the door hanger. The FPPC recommends that door hangers have a campaign disclaimer, letting people know who paid for the advertisement.

February 14, 2020 Fowler chose not to print the campaign disclaimer on her door hanger. Recently, the Lamplighter learned that the Saregas were also supporting Morse and emailed him asking if the Saregas were involved in his campaign. In emails to the Lamplighter, Morse said “I am running my own campaign and will serve independently.â€? When pressed, Morse answered, “I have known Andrew and family for a very long time and saw him grow up. When I decided to run for council he provided me with a lot of information regarding elections‌but I am running my own campaign.â€? Morse’s’ campaign finance documents show a different story. Like Fowler, Morse recently delivered a campaign door hanger to residents in District 5. The door hanger was printed at the same Print Place the Saregas, Aiello, and Fowler used. In addition, like Fowler, it seems as if Morris is hesitant to let La Mirada residents know who paid for the door hanger Bucking the FPPC recommendation, Morse chose not to print the campaign disclaimer on his door hanger. And the connection to the Sarega’s is undeniable, both candidates’ door hangars looked almost identical and closely resemble the website that was used for an unsuccessful congressional campaign Sarega managed. One resident, who did not want to be identified, told the Lamplighter, “the Sarega’s are bad news for La Mirada. Andrew misses a lot of meetings, the city is doing great, ranked 11th in the state in financial soundness, the city was recently ranked one of the safest in the country, yet many of the votes are 4 to 1, with Sarega voting no. And with Sarega, you know that that sleazy Tony Aiello will be right behind him, trying to get his seat on the council.â€?

NORWALK

Continued from page 11 freshman. I trust both of them equally. It’s just that Jimmy came up with the flu over the last two weeks and he missed two or three games. We tried to start Andrew, who was in better rhythm, and then we put Jimmy in there to close out the first half and start the second.” Glenn, which improved to 8-8-3 after the win, has not had a winning campaign since its last trip to the playoffs. In the 2011-2012 campaign, Glenn finished 8-7-4 and came in third place in the Suburban League. The Eagles finished in second place in the 605 League, which is the highest league placing since sharing the Suburban League crown in the 2001-2002 season. Glenn’s dream season would come to an end after falling to Ganesha 6-0. “We kind of expected to get a little bit of a better seeding if we won this game,” Enciso-Rojas said. “But there’s no question that boys now are up for the challenge. They’re already doing their research. I think that team beat Artesia in the preseason [1-0] and I told them, ‘well, there you go, that’s soccer and we very well could have very easily beat Artesia, too’. Now, we have to take advantage of the momentum we have.”

Continued from page 10 and dished out three assists while junior Jayden Williams pitched in with 10 points and eight rebounds. All five starters combined for all but two points and three field goals attempted. As to if this was the biggest victory Campanelli, who needs one more to reach 50 for his time at Norwalk, has ever tasted, he didn’t hesitate to think about the answer. “It’s not even close,” Campanelli said. “We beat La Mirada my second year; we battled those guys tough. We lost to Mayfair by two last year. We battled them tough this year. I think before this, it probably would have been our tournament championship. And then simply winning on senior night five days ago was huge. But this is definitely the biggest one for me. No doubt about it. “But speaking to my four years here, if [former head coach and current assistant coach] Jim Webster wasn’t here, he doesn’t convince us to play that zone,” he continued. “If he’s not here, we don’t do it, and we don’t win without him. So, I’ve got to give it up to him. He really paved the way a long time ago for me.”

CERRITOS' AUDITBOARD RIBBON CUTTING

VELA

Continued from page 1

AuditBoard held their official grand opening and ribbon cutting January 21, 2020 to celebrate their partnership with the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce. Offering a full integrated audit management platform, AuditBoard helps enterprises automate, manage, collaborate and report on risk and control data in real time. AuditBoard, formerly known as SOXHUB was born from a simple idea that managing internal controls and compliance doesn’t have to be administrative or manual. For auditors, keeping track of all of the different documents is always difficult. Putting together status reports could mean talking to ten different teams, which meant long nights, lots of emails and even more spreadsheets. AuditBoard is a fully integrated software platform that has built in SOX and Audit Management tools. From docu-

Continued from page 1 sexually inappropriate advances.” “Mr. Apodaca told me that I should cover my sexy legs because they drive an old man crazy, and that my legs are causing a distraction.” Similar to Lopez’ 2013 accusations, she stated that Apodaca told her, “he used to have a multi-million dollar budget at Coors to wine and dine politicians with women and booze; he also offered to take me shopping and buy expensive clothes if I modeled them first.” Intimidation was a big part of Apodaca’s actions, with Lopez and other women at Central Basin alleging that Apodaca said he would get them fired if they reported him. The complainant in the letter alleged similar actions, “Mr. Apodaca insisted that I sit next to him at a recent lunch. Because he is my superior I felt an obligation to do what he asked. As I was sitting next to him, he placed his hand on my upper leg. During the conversation he asked about my marital status.” “He asked me to be a ‘special friend’ with ‘paid privileges,’ I told him I was married. He said that was OK, then he talked about his wife Caroline and how their relationship was that of a servant to

ning, but it really depends on how much energy I have. We are going to try and push through into the night and early morning, but for sure the outline will be done tonight.” Vela says it usually takes two days to complete a mural, “if I get inspired I will continue to work until it is done.” Judging from his other works that can be found on Instagram @velaart and his website lavelaart.com, we hope he finishes the tribute to Kobe, Gianna, and Nipsey quickly.

ment requests, issue tracking, and even built-in areas for comments and feedback AuditBoard streamlines and automates the entire audit process. AuditBoard received the top score in the j2020 G2 Audit Management Grid Report for its distinctly high customer satisfaction and strong market presence. This distinction follows a number three ranking on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 North America, and the recognition of its co-founders, Daniel Kim and Jay Lee, as EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award winners. “We are honored to be recognized as the only leader in the audit management space by the world’s largest B2B technology review marketplace providing guidance to business software buyers,” said Daniel Kim, Co-CEO at AuditBoard. “This distinction further validates AuditBoard as the market leader and innovator in the audit, risk, and compliance space as we continue to build world-class software solutions.”

twenty-three, Vela has created hundreds of paintings and murals. While his artwork often reflects his South American roots, Vela also sheds light on what some may consider controversial and socially engaged subject matter. Fueled by strong emotion, Vela finds balance in his art, contrasting vibrant colors with dark imagination. His artwork can be found throughout the United States, several Santa Fe locations have showcased his work, including galleries, municipal buildings, and countless businesses and homes. He also balances his love of art with his participation in community projects, teaching artwork to children and teenagers, and involvement with activism focused on social change. Through his art, Vela hopes to continue to beautify the world and touch many lives along the way. "The journey of life is similar to the prayer of dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor, it's to enjoy each step along the way,” said Vela. Vela’s work can be seen at Isotopes Stadium Mural, Downtown Albuquerque, El Paso, Las Cruces, Mountain View, La Montanita and Los Angeles. After the death of Kobe and seven others, including his daughter Gianna, Vela was saddened and then inspired, creating four larger than life murals commemorating Bryant’s legacy. “My first piece started in Boyle Heights, I painted two Kobe murals and it blew up on social media,” said Vela, “it was great sharing Kobe and the tribute to his life. Artesia’s own London’s Pub & Grill owner Raj Patel saw the murals and reached out to Vela, who was more than happy to contribute. Now the popular restaurant , located at 11651 Artesia Blvd in Artesia, California, will have a Vela mural dedicated to Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and Nipsey Hussle. With his cousin Luciano Volonte as his assistant and fellow artist, the two began to map out the wall, organizing paints, setting out to work on the mural this past Wednesday evening, February 12th. “I can usually finish a piece in one eve-

Reductions in the number of recreational classes and programs offered. Reductions in the amount of tree planting, trimming and cleanup that Lakewood can afford, including slower cleanup after storms and windy days. City Manager Thaddeus McCormack noted that this was just an initial list of possible cuts and more would be needed to achieve the full $10 million of spending reductions. Council members spoke in concern about how Lakewood would look and the quality of life for residents with that level of cuts in services. Council Member Steve Croft noted that Measure L would cost the average resident $50 a year, or $1 a week. Mayor Todd Rogers said that he never thought he would support a tax, but he reluctantly had come to support Measure L as the best solution for Lakewood’s situation. Rogers said he was partly persuaded because 60% of the tax would be paid by non-residents who shop at Lakewood Center and other merchants in town, which he said was fair given that non-residents benefit from the good roads, public safety and other services that Lakewood provides. That level of tax payment by nonresident shoppers eases the tax burden on Lakewood residents for maintaining city services. Rogers said he was also persuaded because if Lakewood doesn’t raise its sales tax for its own locally controlled use, then L.A. County or another regional agency will likely raise it soon by the same ¾--cent level for their own purposes, which rarely bring full benefits back to Lakewood.

a maid.” “Don’t be concerned about her,” Apodaca stated, “I keep her in her place.” At one time during the lunch, she stated that Apodaca told her to go get him a beverage, with the complainant alleging that, as she was walking away, he was staring at “specific parts of her body.” When she returned with the drink Apodaca pulled a blue pill out of his pocket, presumably Viagra, which he offered to consume. “He told me he takes the little blue pill often to help get him going and that he could not resist but tell me that I am a turn on and made him feel young again.” She stated that Apodaca asked to take her on a shopping spree after meetings if she promised to model the clothes, “he offered to take me to Victoria’s Secret.” According to the complainant, it was at that time that Apodaca became sexually graphic and threatening in his comments. “He said that he spends hours in front of the TV watching Victoria’s Secret shows playing with himself.” “I was shocked at the comments and told him I was going to report him.” Apodaca then played his most familiar card, threatening the young lady with termination. “Mr. Apodaca threatened to get me fired and that nobody would believe me because of his 20 years of experience in

water. He said he has many friends that would protect him.” The letter finished, “I am requesting an investigation. I am fully aware that I’m not Mr. Apodaca’s first victim and that he has an established pattern and practice of this type of behavior his entire career.” On their website, the ethics office states that they operate independently, but when HMG-LCCN inquired about the letter and investigation, the ethics office deferred to the press contact. HMG-LCCN first called Ethics Chief Salinas, who was evidently surprised that the newspaper learned about the investigation. Salinas, a former Department of Labor investigator, answered the phone, was asked about the investigation and immediately said “please hold,” putting the phone down instead of pressing the hold the key. Salinas returned almost two minutes later and stated he “would have somebody call.” That somebody was press contact Rebecca Kimitch, who in a phone call last Friday, would not confirm or deny the investigation. Kimitch was informed later in the day via email that HMG-LCCN had the letter; with Kimitch saying she had not seen the letter. When asked if other MWD Board Members had seen the letter, Kimitch

once again declined to confirm or deny they had seen the letter. Phone call into MWD’s General Counsel, Marsha Scully have not been returned. Several emails into Apodaca went unreturned. Emails into Apodaca allies, Vice President John Oskoui, who is the Assistant City Manager in Downey, and Director Dan Arrighi, both of whom are unelected and appointed under Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia’s ill-conceived AB 1794, went unreturned. The two have steadfastly defended all of Apodaca’s actions, walking out of several meetings, purposely disrupting and ending the meetings so no actions could be taken. Central Basin Board President Leticia Vasquez did not mince words and demanded action, “our elected board, Vice-President Art Chacon, and Directors Phil Hawkins and Martha CamachoRodriguez, stand united against this serial sexual predator who continues to use his position of power to abuse women. Mr. Apodaca must immediately resign.” HMG-LCCN talked to several lawmakers, who wanted to remain anonymous, who agreed with Vasquez saying Apodaca should step down, similar to Assembly woman Cristina Garcia after she was accused of sexual harassment, until the investigation is complete.
