Cerritos Optimists Host ABC LAWMAKER GATTO Science/Olympic Winners BLASTS NOGUEZ, SALARI RELATIONSHIP Seeks restrictions between ‘assessors and so-called tax agents’

LA Times City Editor blasts Hawkins in statement to LCCN

A

s a result of a massive criminal probe into suspected “pay to play” practices deep inside the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office, lawmakers in Sacramento have decided that “enough is enough.” This week, Assemblyman Mike Gatto of Los Angeles introduced AB 404 that would require tax consultants such as Ramin Salari, one of the central players in a wide sweeping criminal probe of influence peddling with Assessor John Noguez, to be required to disclose to the media and public the “exact nature” of their business dealings. Gatto told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper in an interview from Sacramento

orn in London in 1940, Tina endured the “Bombing of London” with her family when she was a child and was actually forced to a local bomb shelter many times. Tina recalled those frightening experiences often with her extended family, and told them to watch “Hope and Glory” a “terrific recollection of the bombing” to get a feel of what her family went through.

The family subsequently moved to Kent in 1945. Her father John Skewes was an expert tailor with Saville Row in London and fashioned clothing for royalty, including the Duke of Windsor and many actors and actresses including Tyrone Powers. John met Tina’s mom, Lillian Lundell, when she was a “tailoress” in London. In 1956, the entire family immigrated to the United States and settled in Laguna Beach. Tina attended and graduated from Laguna Beach High, where during those years she met the love of her life (married almost 55 years until her death) Clarence Booth, Jr. Their courtship lasted for over one year and they were married in 1957.

Tina and Clarence moved into their first house in Santa Ana in 1961 and had their first child Cora Booth (Hews) in January of 1962. In August 1965 they had their second child, John Booth, and eventually moved into a new house in Santa Ana, on Santa Clara St., an area now known as Floral Park where they have resided for the last 45 years.

Tina was an excellent painter, accomplished in many mediums, her favorites being oils and acrylics. Tina enjoyed painting landscapes as well as portraits, and her many works hang in the house on Santa Clara and also in many of her family and friend’s houses. One of her paintings was the logo of the Olde Ship in Santa Ana, which hangs over the side entrance as you walk into the restaurant.

Tina was such a good painter she could turn an old fence into a masterpiece. True to her talent, she became accomplished at painting “Faux Scenes” also known as Tromp l’oiel. Literally translated meant Tromp l’oiel “To Deceive the Eye”. Her works are evident inside the house on Santa Clara and in many houses in Floral Park. Tina’s “British” sense of humor was second to none; she would always liven up any room. Pour her a “Lager and lime” -British for an ale and a lime-, and Tina would really get the humor going. Tina is survived by her husband Clarence Booth, daughter Cora Hews, son John Booth, son-in-law Brian Hews, grand-daughters Jessica and Ellis Hews, and sister Judith Lane.

OPINION/ COMMUNITYNEWS WHEN ONE HAS TRUE FAITH, ONE WILL NOT GO WRONG By Jerry Bernstein editor@cerritosnews.net

Is it true, you had 1,000 La Mirada newspapers stolen from in front of your office, asked VAL LYNDER, DEFENDER OF ALL THAT IS TRUE, as she rushed into the office. “It’s true. The newspapers were delivered early in the morning by the printer and sometime between his drop and 9 a.m. the newspapers were taken.” “Did you call the police department? Who would steal the newspapers? She

asked in the same breath” “VAL LYNDER relaxes.” I could see she was becoming upset. Her purple umbrella with the white poker dots taping insistently by her side. “The sheriff was called, and yes we suspect who did it?” “What a dastardly thing to do?” she said in a calmer voice. “We’ve contacted the authorities and they are taking it from here-on, I said. “Good.” VAL LYNDER paused, “I just don’t know how someone could stoop so low.” I could see she was more relaxed, so I changed the subject. “Have you seen our Friend from Fruitcake, Florida? I asked. “No I haven’t,” she answered. “What does he think about the newspaper theft?” “I don’t think he knows, but I suspect when he hears about it he’ll be dropping in.” “Well, while I’m here. I have a few questions you might be able to answer for me.” “Shoot,” I said. “I didn’t mean that literally.” I quickly added. “I know what you meant, “ she replied a little testily.” Explain to me what is going on in Norwalk? According to my friends in Norwalk, some members on the city council, and the chamber executive officer met with the publisher of the Downey Patriot to bring that publication into the city so it could print the city legals?”

“That’s correct,” I replied. “So what’s the problem?” “The problem is the newspaper has to be adjudicated in the city in order to print that city’s legals.” Before she could ask, I continued. “ It’s quite simple. Under the law a newspaper has to be in general circulation within the city for more than one year, have a paying circulation of at least 2,000 plus have an office in the city. It also has had to be covering city news for more than three years.” Really?” she said. “I didn’t know that.” “It’s true and its interesting that on Nov. 4, 2011, a memo from City Manager Mike Egan to then Mayor Mike Mendez and current Mayor Cheri Kelley and the rest of the city council stated the city did not have an adjudicated newspaper of general circulation in the city.” VAL LYNDER, DEFENDER OF ALL THAT IS TRUE, took advantage of my pause and asked what the luncheon meeting held at the Outback Restaurant in December was all about?” “You know more than your letting on,” I said. She didn’t say anything. I decided not to press her on what she knew. “Well, “ I began, “On Dec. 9, Executive Director Vivian Hansen sent an e-mail to Mayor Kelley, Councilman Mike Mendez, Chamber President Joe Derthick, Chamber Board

Member and Outback Manager Rob Cazares reminding them of their noon meeting with the publisher of the “new” Norwalk newspaper, Jennifer DeKay Givens.” VAL LYNDER, DEFENDER OF ALL THAT IS TRUE, asked. “Didn’t Hansen send an e-mail to the City Manager on March 8 that she sold the Norwalk Chamber Masthead to Ms. Givens for use as newspaper’s name. “True,” I answered. “And didn’t she state the newspaper was going to start the following week.” “Correct,” I replied. “This in turn was followed by Ms. Givens filing a notice in Los Angeles Superior Court to publish legal notices for the city under Government Code Section 6000.” “Doesn’t Section 6000 require a new newspaper to have been publishing in the city for one year and have a paying circulation of 2000? She asked, “Doesn’t it also have to have an office in the city and at least a minimum of 25 per cent of local stores in its newspaper for more than three years?” “You’re correct,” I said. “Sounds to me like there some collusion going on,” she asserted. “Looks that way,” I answered. VAL LYNDER gave me a look and said, “Something is not kosher.”

Letter to the Editor

was bent on even more spending in an era of increasing deficits. She says they made things worse. By whose definition? What other bad things would have happened if the Democrats had retained control of the House? Use your imagination. Obama convened a committee to recommend how to address the looming debt crisis which included Social Security and Medicare, and he ignored their recommendations. The only party to address the hard issues was the Republican Party which was blistered by the Democrats for being insensitive to the needs of the poor. The Democrats haven’t passed a budget in three years because of Harry Reed’s failure to even consider the numerous bills passed by the House. Once again, the Democrats have demonstrated their cowardice in the face of the mounting fiscal crisis. They would rather demagogue than actually try to solve problems. Sanchez says she wants to increase the number of jobs in this country but doesn’t really address the contributing reasons for the poor job market, uncertainty over Obamacare and excessive government bureaucracy, especially in our State. Obama’s administration could immediately increase oil production on government lands and approve

the Keystone pipeline (increase jobs) but this would alienate the green extremists on the left. Whenever I think of Representative Sanchez I can’t forget the comment she made when speaking to our group several years ago. According to her, increases in spending are really cuts. For example, you want ten dollars and I give you seven. That’s a three dollar cut. She concludes her interview by saying how proud she is of three bills she has introduced. The third would mandate minimum wage, including overtime, for homecare workers, even family members. How would this be monitored? Unlike Paul Ryan who displayed courage in his proposal to slow the growth of government spending, Sanchez displays little boldness in her proposals. Where are her recommendations to save Social Security and Medicare? Ryan was crucified by the Democrats for his budget proposals which cut nothing from social programs. Remember granny over the cliff? In fact, he proposed a three percent increase in spending. According to Democrats, Ryan’s “cuts” were draconian. Gary Lee

During her interview by Community News staff as reported in the May 8th issue of this paper, Representative Sanchez was asked the “hard hitting” question what she thought of House Republicans. In response, she criticized Republicans as “Do Nothing Representatives”. Let me return the favor by criticizing Democrats as “Do the Wrong Thing Representatives”. The Democrats controlled congress and the presidency for the first two years after the 2008 election and what did the Democrats do? They passed on a totally partisan vote a health care bill that most Americans opposed. Remember the silly comment by Nancy Pelosi that “we have to pass it to find out what’s in it”? Well we found what’s in it and even more Americans expressed their disapproval. Sanchez claims the tea party candidates were elected to “fix things” when in fact they were elected to repeal Obamacare and stop a runaway government which

Hawaiian Elementary School Placed on ‘Lock Down’ During Search for Domestic Violence Suspect By Randy Economy An elementary school in Hawaiian Gardens was placed on lock down May 2 as members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Special Weapons Team conducted a search for a possible armed suspect involved in a domestic violence incident. The incident took place at the 12000 block of Brittain Street in Hawaiian Gardens when Lakewood Sheriff’s Station personnel searched for the suspect who was possibly armed. After landing on the athletic field of Hawaiian Elementary School, 12350 East

226th Street, Sheriff’s Air Rescue-5, with paramedics on board, staged on the field. The school was placed on lock-down. Students inside Hawaiian Elementary School were in the middle of taking a state mandated test, according to officials at the ABC Unified School District. No students at Hawaiian Elementary School were ever in “harms way” school officials told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper. “At approximately 10:a.m., after a search of the suspect’s home, it was determined the suspect was not inside,” said Lakewood Sheriff’s Deputy Guillermina Saldaña. If members of the community have any additional questions or information regarding the circumstances that led up to the search please contact Lakewood Station watch commander at (562) 623-3500.

PHIL HAWKINS 1 Phil Hawkins is the first to ask all other water agencies to freeze water rates to the level of Central Basin Water District rates.

2 Phil Hawkins has shown leadership for 12 years at the Central Basin Water District. He was appointed by Supervisor Don Knabe to the Assessment Appeals Board. He was also appointed to the State Trade and Commerce Board. He is also on the Colorado River Water Authority Board.

3 Under Phil Hawkins leadership, the Central Basin Water District was awarded a $3 million grant from the Department of Energy for an emergency water supply and efficiency study. This is currently out to bid and will be completed soon.

4 Phil Hawkins has reduced spending at the Central Basin Water District to an all-time low. 5 Phil Hawkins, as Finance Chairman, has balanced the budget at the Central Basin Water District for the last 10 years. He has increased the bond rating from A to AAA, which means we, as taxpayers, pay the lowest interest rate possible.

6 Phil Hawkins has reduced the number of employees from 187 to 47 and kept the same level of service for the Central Basin Water District. 7 Phil Hawkins helped create the current education program that many elementary grade and middle schools participate in at this time. We have an aquarium truck that goes from school to school to show kids the different types of water wildlife. The kids can even touch each one of the wild life.

8 Phil Hawkins was there to oversee the development of the Central Basin Recycle Water System that is now one of the largest recycle water system in Southern California.

9 Phil Hawkins has worked with the Metropolitan Water District to raise money for more conservation programs in the Central Basin Water District. He worked with schools and cities to create all native drought resistant plant environments that require little water.

10 Phil Hawkins went to Washington DC and acquired $10 million from Congress to clean up all water that flows into the Central Basin from the San Gabriel Mountains.

Candidate Jay Gray Urges Voters to ‘Clean Up’ Central Basin Water District Corruption By Randy Economy Cerritos resident Jay Gray jumped into this year’s campaign for Board of Directors in the Central Basin Water Board in District 5 for one Jay Gray main reason. “It is time for a real change in the way the district is being managed, and it starts at the top by electing a new person into the job.” Gray, 50, is a lifelong resident of the area having moved to Cerritos with his family from Norwalk back when he was in elementary school. He is a former graduate of Cerritos High School and he and his wife currently have three teen age daughters who attend his alma mater. He is also one of the first students to have ever attended Frank Leal Elementary School in the ABC Unified School District and is a current member of that campuses school site council. Gray has been a leading voice in Cerritos during the past several years, and frequently is seen addressing the city council on issues pertaining to infrastructure issues. This is his first attempt at public office. Gray told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper that he decided to run for Central Basin Water Board after reading about “possible corruption” allegations and law enforcement inquiries on the daily operations at the agency. “We have contracts that are given to individuals based upon political connections,” he said. “It is important that we get people who are not at the end of their political careers, or politicians who want to use the office as a stepping stone, to truly represent the needs and to protect the taxpayers,” Gray emphasized. “We need someone who is going to be aggressive in protecting the public’s money,” Gray said. He also pointed to a series of investigative articles done by the Los Angeles Times as an “indicator” that “something is definitely wrong” with the “way the Central Basin Water Board is being managed.” Gray said he advocates “transparency” at the Central Basin Water District. “For too long it has been a mystery of what happens at Central Basin.” “I want to bring a new era of leadership to us rate payers and customers,” he said.

PHIL HAWKINS STRESSES EXPERIENCE IN RACE FOR FOURTH TERM ON CENTRAL BASIN WATER BOARD By Randy Economy Phil Hawkins is no stranger to elected office and community involvement during the past 30 years. The Cerritos resident is attempting to get reelected to his fourth four year term as a Director of the Central Basin Water Board of Directors. Hawkins represents Area 5 that includes Cerritos, Artesia, Paramount, Lakewood, Hawaiian Gardens, and Signal Hill. He and his wife Janeth have lived in Cerritos since 1979, and grew up in Bellflower. He has a son, Philip Hawkins, Jr., who is a local realtor and daughter Sheila who works for a medical trade association. He has five grandchildren that range from ages four to eight. Hawkins has dedicated much of his adult life to community and business affairs including building a successful career in real estate. He is also a former elected member of the California State Assembly and also served as a Commissioner on Trade and Commerce for the State of California. Hawkins said that this is the first time that voters will be selecting Directors to the Central Basin Water Board in a June Pri-

mary election. He said the District decided to change the board election date instead of being in November, to June as a “cost savings measure” to taxpayers. Water storage is one of the “top issues” facing Central Basin Water Board for the future. “Under the Central Basin we have one of the most beautiful aquafirs that you could ever imagine,” he said in an interview with Los Cerritos Community Newspaper. “Our water is so good, that Coca-Cola even moved its plant to Downey in order to have access to our basin,” he quipped. He even said the “public shouldn’t waste their time buying bottled water, “Our water at Central Basin is that good,” he said. “Your water is a pure as you can get it.” He called the campaign thus far “pretty quiet.” “I am the only candidate with any signs out so far,” he said. Hawkins is being challenged by Assemblyman Tony Mendoza and Cerritos community leader Jay Gray. “I was surprised when he (Mendoza) decided to run (for water board),” he said. Hawkins also said that if Mendoza does prevail in the campaign, that he will have

to resign his seat in the state assembly before this November’s general election. Hawkins said his “heart” is in his “job” as a director.

District Attorney in sifting through Assessor evidence By Randy Economy randy@cerritosnews.net

D

avid Demerjian, Senior District Attorney for Los Angeles County told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper on Tuesday that he has 16 investigators shifting through potential evidence gathered during the recent raids involving pay to play corruption allegations deep inside the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office. Demerjian, in an interview with LCCN, said the “investigation is progressing” and that all of the evidence seized at 12 different locations, including that at the personal residence of Assessor John Noguez and Arizona tax agent is being sifted through “page by page.” He acknowledged that there is “no timeline” on when his department will have concluded their current investigation. “We are taking a team approach in this investigation, with all of our investigators working together and being very careful about every detail,” Demerjian said. The evidence that was hauled away in the raids has been taken to “two possible locations” he said. “We have a location in Downtown Los Angeles and another in Commerce where we normally conduct our investigations in a case of this magnitude,” Demerjian said.

NOGUEZ WARNED ABOUT BEING ‘DRAGGED UNDER A BUS’ IN 2009 By Randy Economy randy@cerritosnews.net

L

os Angeles County Assessor John R. Noguez and controversial tax agent Ramin Salari engaged in a series of personal emails exchanges that dealt with untold number of property assessment reductions as well as other off the off the cuff comments, Los Cerritos Community Newspaper can confirm. Noguez and Salari are the central figures in a wide ranging criminal probe by members of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office of Public Integrity. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper has obtained hundreds of emails that show in great details the amount of access and influence Salari has over Noguez and his top staff members inside the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office. Salari and Noguez have been close political allies for the past decade. Salari was a key donor to Noguez political campaigns going back to when he served as the Mayor of Huntington Park, through his successful campaign to the Assessor’s office in 2010. Back on Wednesday, November 25,

2009, Salari sent Noguez a personal email from his American On-Line account address MyF430Spider@aol.com at 6:29 a.m. under the subject line “Commercial Property Prices Fall Up to 55%.” Salari sends Noguez a link to an article in Bloomberg News that talks about current decline in market values. Noguez then at 8:25 a.m. forwarded Salari’s email to Assessor employees, Morris Ko, Alex Yotsov, Ronald Arison, Dale Hammonds, Mark Newkirk, Terrance Tengan, Cary Marlowe-Petrell, Jerry House and Jeff Meyer with the note: “An anonymous source (Salari) has sent me an interesting link regarding the market to make our job easier. Will this suffice to drop everything by 55%?” Noguez then forwards that email back to Salari at 9:27 a.m. (US Mountain time, Salari is based in Arizona) from his official government account JNoguez@assessor.lacounty.gov the comment “I sent it out.” Thirty minutes later Salari responds to Noguez from his same AOL email account: “Oh, sure. Drag me under the bus why don’t you.” A massive raid by members of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office at a dozen locations including both Noguez

inner office at the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration and his personal home in Huntington Park and Salari’s office and home in Arizona two weeks ago resulted in computers, hard drives, documents, cell phones and other potential evidence to be gathered in the wide ranging criminal probe. Los Cerritos Community News has learned that both American On Line and GoDaddy.com offices were also visited by law enforcement and evidence gathered at both computer giants. Both Salari and Noguez communicate between each other on their personal AOL accounts, LCCN can confirm. Prosecutors are looking at more than 179 properties whose owners got improper tax reductions. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper was the first news agency to report on the criminal investigation in a series of investigative articles beginning on Feb. 6, 2012. LCCN has been featured on CBS News, KCAL9, KRLA Talk Radio, KABC Talk Radio, the Los Angeles Times, LA Daily Newspaper and other publications around the United States for their reporting efforts during the past several weeks.

NOGUEZ CHIEF OF STAFF CALLS ‘NEGATIVE PUBLICITY DISTURBING’ By Randy Economy randy@cerritosnews.net

rity two weeks ago but his top staff member is speaking out for the first time in an email exclusively obtained by Los Cerritos Community Newspaper. George Renkei, Chief of Staff to the embattled Noguez fired off an email to all Los Angeles County Assessor employees on April 30th, five days after several offices were searched, and evidence gathered in a massive “pay to play” probe that covers at least two different states. Under the subject line “Update On The District Attorney’s Investigation,” Renkei tells employees “I am sure that you have heard or read that on April 25, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office served search warrants on several of our offices. The warrants sought records to an ongoing investigation into allegations of inappropriate activities.” “Our office has been and will continue to be, fully cooperative with the District Attorney,” Renkei states. “While the negative publicity about our department has been disturbing, it is particularly unfair to you, the Assessor’s office employees, who are dedicated to serving

the public with integrity and professionalism.” “I am proud of our team and the exemplary work that you do each and every day, and I hope that you are as well,” Renkei said. “Despite recent events, I am confident that we will continue to provide the same high-quality service that the people of Los Angeles County have come to expect. Keep up the good work, and thank you for your commitment, patience and professionalism,” he concludes. One employee, who spoke to Los Cerritos Community Newspaper on the condition of anonymity, questioned why Noguez has yet to make “any attempt to talk to his employees about the raids.” “Noguez is hiding from all of us, and getting emails from someone who just had his office raided is a tad disturbing,” the source said.

on Wednesday that the bill was a “simple premise, due to the situation in Los Angeles County.” It would also, in many cases, prevent tax agents from making campaign contributions to Assessors, who then hear the tax agents' clients’ cases. Salari has been tied to tens of thousands of dollars in political contributions to Noguez during the past decade that goes back to when Noguez was moonlighting as a city councilmember in the City of Huntington Park and working during the daytime as a Property Appraiser Specialist in the assessor’s office. Gatto told LCCN that the “relationship between Noguez and Salari and other tax agents is a recipe for disaster.” “It is unwise policy to allow these socalled ‘tax-agents’ to lobby assessors in the backrooms of government with no disclosure," said Gatto. "We should treat those who lobby County Assessors the same as those who lobby County Supervisors, requiring a modicum of disclosure and setting certain ground rules on what is and is not acceptable conduct.” Gatto also praised the efforts of Los Cerritos Community Newspaper for “bringing this issue to the forefront.” “If it wasn’t for Los Cerritos Community Newspaper, the public and the rest of the media would have had no idea about the current crisis inside the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office,” Gatto said. Gatto, a Democrat, said he has not had any contact with Noguez about the legislation and he “doesn’t plan to.” “I never supported or endorsed the guy (Noguez) in the first place.” He also stressed that “AB 404 would not affect property owners who advocate on their own behalf, nor would it take away local control for counties to amend the fine points of their lobbying ordinances.” Gatto has been working with the California Association of Professional Employees, which represents more than 3000 of Los Angeles County's professional employees, “including those who work hard to assess properties, only to see their work undone at times by the well-connected people like Salari to provide increased transparency in the process.” It would also, in many cases, prevent tax agents from making campaign contributions to Assessors, who then hear the tax agents' clients’ cases. “It is unwise policy to allow these socalled ‘tax-agents’ to lobby assessors in the backrooms of government with no disclosure," said Gatto. "We should treat those who lobby County Assessors the same as those who lobby County Supervisors, requiring a modicum of disclosure and setting certain ground rules on what is and is not acceptable conduct.” He also said that AB 404 would not affect

property owners who advocate on their own behalf, nor would it take away local control for counties to amend the fine points of their lobbying ordinances. “This common-sense solution will allow the public to know who is paying whom to lobby their elected Assessors. It makes sense that these individuals, who often obtain multi-million-dollar benefits for their clients, have to live by the same rules as other lobbyists,” Gatto said.

LA TIMES/HAWKINS

Continued from page 1 paper have been a “phony political ad” attack. In an interview with LCCN Editor Jerry Bernstein and Reporter Randy Economy on Monday afternoon, Hawkins went on the offense by singling out his two rivals, Assemblyman Tony Mendoza and Cerritos community leader Jay Gray for “conducting a dirty and deliberate campaign” against him by “twisting the facts” regarding several articles that recently appeared in both the Los Angeles Times and on local television news casts written by a writer who the Times now questions even exists. “This campaign is going to be about scare tactics, and half truths, and in some cases just flat out lies,” Hawkins said. But in an interview with Shelby Grad, City Editor of the Los Angeles Times, Hawkins needs to be held accountable for his past statements. “We wanted to clarify several comments made in the story. Despite what Mr. Hawkins said, The Times has never retracted any of its articles about the Central Municipal Basin Water District and we never told officials there that the article was “bogus.” The Times stands by our stories. Moreover, there has never been any confusion over the authors of those stories.” In the advertisements published in Los Cerritos Community Newspaper during the past three weeks, Hawkins claims that his opponents have taken excerpts from that particular article and have “twisted the facts” for their own “political benefits.” Hawkins said that Mendoza was “misstating the truth” about current residential water rates offered by Central Basin for his “own political gain.” He said it true the District raised the rates 40 percent but a breakdown of the increase reveals it cost the District $18 per acre foot, down from $25. “That’s enough water to provide a family of four with water for one year. Our bond rating is Triple A, the highest you can have for bonds, and our District building is paid for,” Hawkins said. Also he claims that when he was elected to the Board 12 years ago the District had a $1 million deficit. “Today we have a surplus,” he said and he didn’t think that demonstrated that the District was “corrupt.” Hawkins also dismissed the claims that his association with Tom Calderon, who is

the head of a public advocacy consulting firm by Central Basin to conduct “outreach efforts” to local and state elected officials was not done as a political “favor.” “His (Tom Calderon) experience as a former California state legislator, and as the head of the Calderon Group makes him experienced in acting as a consultant for Central Basin since 2004 in dealing with the State on Water issues, especially on the need for water storage” and other issues such as water recycling and “fighting the Metropolitan Water District and Water Replenishment District’s rate increases to local cities.” Hawkins also told LCCN that Calderon, who himself is currently running for a state assembly seat in the newly created 58th Assembly District that stretches from Bell Gardens and Commerce southeast into Cerritos “contributed $300 to one of my past campaigns, and has not contributed to this current campaign.” But according to campaign reports obtained by LCCN, Hawkins did receive thousands of dollars in contribution from “The Calderon Group” and other political action committees controlled by Tom Calderon. During Hawkins 2008 reelection, Tom Calderon contributed $1500 to Hawkins, and in addition, the Political Action Committee called California Citizens for Good Government doled out $4,750 for that same 2008 campaign during October of that year, a month before his last campaign. “In summary, Phil has lied about the contributions he has received from Tom Calderon and has used a deceptive PAC controlled by Tom Calderon to funnel an additional $4,750 to Phil’s last campaign,” Rob Katherman, a Director of the Southern California Water Replenishment District told LCCN in an email on Wednesday. The complete video interview with Hawkins and LCCN can be found at www. loscerritosnews.net.

hen La Mirada softball head coach Richard Trujillo scouted Cerritos for the first time this season on Apr. 27 against Norwalk, he hinted that he could have a secret weapon when his Matadores played Cerritos. Trujillo stuck to his word as La Mirada paid a visit to Cerritos this past Tuesday with the Suburban League championship at stake. That secret weapon was freshman pitcher Valerie Alvarado and she was just as hot as the weather was on this early May Southern California day. Alvarado pitched eight and two-thirds innings and struck out 16 of the 34 batters she faced as the Matadores snuck past Cerritos 3-1 in 11 innings. After watching Cerritos and Mayfair share the league title last season, the Matadores reclaimed what had been theirs outright from 20012008. La Mirada, the eighth ranked team in the California Interscholastic FederationSouthern Section Division II poll, improved to 20-7 overall and 11-0 in the league. Trujillo replaced senior Ambar Hickman with Alvarado with one out in the bottom of third following a walk to sophomore designated player Lilianna Herrera. Alvarado would strike out two of the three batters she faced in the frame as well as two in each of the next three innings. She fanned three in the seventh and eighth innings and never allowed a Cerritos runner to reach third base 1:33 PM her Page during time1in the circle.

“Whether you see her or not, she’s effective,” Trujillo said. “And that makes Ambar that much more effective. We still haven’t counted [senior] Jenevie Rivas out but when they’re not touching Val, why change?” Cerritos head coach Bob Medina countered with his freshman sensation, Jennifer Iseri, whom Trujillo did not see in the aforementioned Cerritos-Norwalk game. Iseri struggled in the top of the first, walking senior left fielder Mylee Macahilig to lead off the game. Following a strikeout, Iseri threw 10 straight balls to load the bases and eventually surrendered a run scoring hit to junior shortstop Mercedes Gasparovic. After that, Iseri settled down a bit and retired nine straight and did not allow anyone to get beyond second until the seventh. Cerritos, ranked one spot ahead of La Mirada in the division, also had its chances to score early as Hickman walked senior center fielder Sarah Smith in the first and yielded an infield hit to Herrera. But Hickman regrouped and sat down the next six before giving up a double to Smith in the third. Then, Iseri drove in Smith with a base hit to tie the game and after the walk to Herrera, it was the Alvarado show. The recent junior varsity call-up baffled the hot-hitting Lady Dons and forced them to chase at pitches outside the strike zone. Alvarado reached a three-ball count three times before extra innings, but only walked freshman catcher Heather Cameron of those three-ball counts during that time. Cerritos (18-5, 9-2) had a chance to get to Alvarado immediately after replacing Hickman as junior first baseman Miki Okazaki was safe on an infield hit to load the bases. But Alvarado ended that threat by recording her first strikeout. “We didn’t execute,” Medina said. “We should have executed. We probably had plenty of opportunities. It was a matter of time. If you don’t execute after four opportunities, then what do you do? The odds of you winning are less and less.” In the top of the seventh, the Matadores loaded the bases following consecutive singles from sophomore pinch hitter Stephanie Baro and Hickman. But Iseri induced Macahilig to fly out to freshman left fielder Madison Lee. Cerritos had two more chances to score the game-winner, the first coming in the eighth when Lee led off with a single and two outs later, advanced on a base hit from senior right fielder Alex Avila. The other came in the 10th when Okazaki reached on a fielder’s choice and junior shortstop Erin Clinton was safe on an error. But Avila flew out to center to continue the game. Alvarado scattered five hits, walked two and threw

130 pitches. “I think she did a great job,” Medina said. “We told our girls to stay off the high pitch. She had 62 high pitches and 42 inside pitches. With the kids being young, we need a little more experience I believe. The girls were swinging at the high stuff and we shouldn’t have.” La Mirada finally got to Iseri in the 11th when Gasparovic bunted up the first base line and senior first baseman Rochelle Sablay singled to left. After junior third baseman Lindsey Cole sacrificed both of them, Rice sent a deep fly to the right field foul territory that was caught, allowing Gasparovic to come home. Two pitches later, Sablay scored the insurance run. Iseri went the distance, striking out seven and throwing 167 pitches. Medina said that he had no intentions of making a pitching change at any time. “Jen was going to go the whole game,” Medina said. “Even in the first inning, I said, ‘you’re not coming out’. If we went 28 innings, she was going to go 28 innings. We were going to win or lose with her. The thing is, she’s the one they’re going to battle against next year and she’ll know it.” “Nothing we saw surprised us and nothing that we’re going to see is surprising to us because we’ve played the best,” Trujillo said. “We’re ready. A win like this is big and a loss for Cerritos like this is big for them because that’s going to give them something to carry into the playoffs.” Sablay went three for four while Gasparovic went two for five. The top four in La Mirada’s lineup went a combined one for 17. Meanwhile, the only one who could get to Alvarado was Smith, the Baylor University signee, who had two of her three hits off the reliever. Five other players accounted for the other five hits from Cerritos and every batter struck out at least once. “Sarah is good; there’s no doubt about it,” Trujillo said. “But top to bottom we had better hitters. We deserved to be in first place. We deserved this Suburban League championship and from the looks of it, we’re not going to be any weaker next year either.” This was the longest Suburban League game for Cerritos in at least 15 years and the longest since May 21, 2003 when the Lady Dons lost to Downey 8-3 in 11 innings in a wild card playoff game. Before that, Cerritos had played in an 11-inning game at Chaminade and a 13-inning affair against Corona, both in 2000. In 1999, Cerritos and Corona went 16 innings in the Inland Empire. All three of those long extra inning games before 2003 were shutout wins by

GONZALEZ HELPS SEND NORWALK INTO PLAYOFFS, LANCERS FINALLY SOLVE ARTESIA HEX SUBURBAN LEAGUE BASEBALL By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

R

uben Velasquez was hoping the end of this season wasn’t going to be like the past two seasons. The head coach of Norwalk’s baseball team once again saw his team needing a victory over Artesia in the final week of the regular season and some help in order to move on to the California Interscholastic FederationSouthern Section Division II playoffs. The Lancers did their past last Friday afternoon, edging host Artesia 3-2, then later found out that John Glenn had lost to Bellflower, thus clinching a postseason berth for the third season in a row. Norwalk entered the final week of the regular season at 12-12 overall and 6-4 in the Suburban League. It was in a three-way tie for second place with Bellflower and La Mirada while Glenn, which wrapped up its league season last week, ended at 5-7. “It was boiling down to that again,” Velasquez said. “That ugly picture was coming up [again]. The last couple of years we almost missed the playoffs. Two dropped fly balls, a pop-up and a fly ball to right field a couple of years ago. This is not a fun

LATEST GROUP OF CERRITOS GIRLS SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION ALL-STARS ANNOUNCED

D

espite not hosting its own middle of June tournament or fielding a 14-Under group, the Cerritos Girls Softball Association recently announced its all-stars for 2012. The three oldest all-star teams will kick off their summer tournament schedule by participating in the San Dieguito Tournament May 25-27. The Amateur Softball Association ‘B’ District Tournament is slated for June 22-24 and the state tournament will be held July 6-8. Other tournaments and friendlies are also scheduled this month through the end of July. 6-UNDER ALL-STARS Madison Alvarez, Mariana Botello, Justine De Freitas, Koa DeLeon, Natalie Gardea, Presley Hendrix, Natalia Hill, Malaia Huskey, Mya Jurado, Kailyn KershawLauderback, Kylee Manibusan, Alea Medina, Allison Salas Manager: Kristie Manibusan Head coach: Allen Manibusan Coach: Jacob Alvarez, Coach: Roumel DeLeon, Coach: Dave Huskey, Coach:

place to visit for me personally.” Norwalk had split its season series with Artesia the past two seasons and six of the last eight. The last time the Lancers swept the Pioneers was back in 2000. But the visitors got a stellar pitching performance from senior Anthony Gonzalez, who scattered five hits, gave up one earned run and struck out five for his second straight win and second complete game of the season. “First and foremost, Anthony Gonzalez did a great job,” Velasquez said. “He pretty much threw the team on his back. He wasn’t going to let anything affect him. He was determined to finish this game and win this game.” Artesia got to Gonzalez early as the hurler walked senior right fielder Gary Smith in the bottom of the first with two outs and yielded a run scoring hit to junior catcher Tommy Corrales. But the Lancers tied the game in the next inning after leading the bases loaded in the first. Sophomore center fielder Trino Romero reached on a fielder’s choice and Gonzalez singled. Both runners would advance on an error before Romero tied the game on a single from freshman left fielder Jacob Carr. Norwalk took the lead for good in the fourth when Carr singled with two outs, stole second and scored on an error. In the next inning, senior first baseman Jose SanDanny Salas, Coach: Don Taguchi 8-UNDER ALL-STARS Chelsea Azevedo, Katelyn Caneda, Alexa Diaz, Piper Garcia, Sarah Gutierrez, Azalea Herrera, Mikala Huskey, Elizabeth Lara, Lauren Lejano, Megan Maki, Adriana Portillo, Joslyn Purcell, Makayla Sur, Manager: Pom Garcia Head coach: Rich Garcia Coach: Gabe Azevedo, Coach: Dave Huskey, Coach: Ray Portillo 10-UNDER ALL-STARS Caitlyn Azevedo, Gemma Bulthuis, Brenda Duran, Jazmine Hill, Valerie Joaquin, Sydni Jones, Natalie Juarez, Samantha Monroe, Leilani Pati, Cassie Perryman, Haylee Ridge, Madison Sanchez Manager: Lori Williams Head Coach: Adele Perryman Coach: Cedric Hill 12-UNDER ALL-STARS Evelynn Hernandez, Katelynn Hernandez, Kennedy Miller, Emily Morton, Alora Murray, Cassandra Oravetz, Kylee Perryman, Alyssa Rios, Jalynn Roberson, Nasrin Samoa, Tena Spoolstra, Kayla Vukovich Manager: Lyn Perryman Head coach: Rene Hernandez Coach: Carlos Acosta, Coach: George Molina

doval led off with a base hit, stole a pair of bases and came home on a base hit from senior catcher German Vasquez. However, the Lancers left the bases loaded again and stranded 11 for the game. Artesia’s other run came in its half of the fifth when junior left fielder Jeremy Gaskin, who had reached on a fielder’s choice, scored on Smith’s hit to center. Last season, the Lancers needed Artesia to lose twice to Mayfair on the last week of the regular season to make the playoffs. In 2010, as Norwalk was having its bye on the final week of the regular season, it had to watch Artesia lose to Mayfair twice in order to clinch fourth place and knock the Pioneers out of the playoffs. “It’s hard to explain but I tip my cap to coach Mike [Gaoghagan],” Velasquez said. “No matter how bad they are struggling or where they’re at, they come out to play every time. He does a fantastic job over here and they’re determined to win a game.” Artesia (5-18, 1-9) received a complete game performance from senior Cesar Soto, who lost his second straight 3-2 decision after going the distance both times. The Pioneers, who faced Bellflower this past week, will miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season. Carr and senior third baseman Miguel Castaneda each went two for four for the Lancers, who lost to league

champion Mayfair this past Tuesday 122. Those two teams concluded the regular season on May 10 at Norwalk. The Lancers will most likely enter the playoffs as the fourth place representatives from the league but following a season-opening sweep over La Mirada, splits with Cerritos and Glenn later in the season hampered their chances of a much better league finish. “I felt our schedule was favorable that way,” Velasquez said. “We were hoping if we could at least split with La Mirada, let alone sweep them, we were going to be in good shape. It’s been baffling since that week to me and my coaching staff. We haven’t had that intensity, that fire to win since that first week.”

Cerritos. With Alvarado and Iseri showing they could go long distances, the next six league meetings between these two teams should prove to be among the best games of the Southern Section, as well as the league. Although the Matadores lose eight seniors, they simply reload every year. Cerritos, which has seven freshmen this season, will lose four to graduation. “With two freshmen out there [today], this is going to be a hell of a battle for the next three years,” Trujillo said. “But [Cerritos] hung in there. They had some chances and we squandered a few but I think just the maturity…the seniors have been here before. I think we took advantage of the miscues on Cerritos’ part.” “I think that’s awesome,” Medina said of the future of the two freshmen pitchers. “I really do because I wish every team [in league] gets a quality pitcher like Alvarado. They’re going to be hard to beat. We’re a good hitting team. We’re a good, solid team. We just didn’t stay off the high stuff. We weren’t disciplined at the plate like we wanted.”

Cerritos Crime Summary April 30 - May 6, 2012

There were 33 Part I felony investigations conducted by members of the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station last week, down by two cases from the previous week. Commercial burglaries and vehicle thefts were up, but robberies, residential burglaries, and vehicle burglaries dropped. Field personnel responded to 274 calls for service, up from 269 the week before. The 2012 weekly average in calls for service is 263. There were no robberies reported last week. Residential burglaries decreased from five to four last week. Two of the homes were entered via unlocked doors/windows, a sliding glass door was shattered, and a window was pried. Handbags, a TV, a coin collection, cameras, and laptops were taken. The 2012 weekly average in residential burglaries is now 4.2. Remember, the hot weather is coming and residents are known to leave doors and windows open for ventilation. Unfortunately, residential burglars know this too. Seven commercial burglaries were reported compared to two the previous reporting

period. All were closed businesses. Four occurred in the same building in the 18000 block of Studebaker Road. Checks, clothes, computers, and tools were stolen. The 2012 weekly average in “other structure”/commercial burglaries is 1.3. Vehicle burglaries were down from 19 to 14 last week. High-volume commercial parking lots were the crime scenes in 12 cases. 10 involved SUVs. Purses, ID, credit cards, MP3 players, headphones, wallets, sunglasses, rings, and a passport were among the items reported as stolen. The 2012 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 7.6. Keep your windows rolled up, doors locked, and all valuable items out of the passenger compartment. If they must be stored in the vehicle, keep them in the trunk. If you do not have a trunk, remember that 10 of the 14 vehicle burglaries last week were SUVs that do not have trunks. Trust us, there is a connection! Vehicle thefts were up from two to four last week. Three occurred in high-volume commercial parking lots. A Honda, an SUV, a Nissan, and an Acura were stolen. The 2012 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 4.1.

LCCN Reporter Places Third in Seal Beach Run By Randy Economy

R

ico Dizon, a reporter of Los Cerritos Community Newspaper has placed third in the Seal Beach 10K Run held in April. Dizon competed in the 65-69 age group

and averaged 9:48:05 minutes per mile. He completed the distance in 1:00:58 chips time. The Seal Beach 10K Run, an annual project of the city of Seal Beach which starts at Marina Drive and First St. and continues along the scenic Ocean Blvd. to Seal Beach Blvd., Westminster Blvd., San Gabriel River Bed and back to Ocean Blvd. at the pier, usually draws a large number of participants each year. This year, the 38th run to date, has duplicated the 5,500 cap limit achieved in 2011. Run Seal Beach is

a non-profit organization whose charter is to raise funds and awareness for recreation and fitness programs and other services to benefit the greater Seal Beach community including Rosmoor and Los Alamitos. Last year, the race event made possible the awarding of a record total of $126,000 to some 48 organizations with wide range of community program needs. The nonprofit charter has been in existence since 1999 although the organization has sponsored runs for the past 38 years. The race has continued to grow in attendance and

contributions each year. We are very much committed to making this annual event one of high quality and source of pride for the City as well as our loyal race sponsors, said the spokesperson of the Run Seal Beach race committee. The event is planned, managed and implemented purely by volunteers with no salaries drawn from any administration and so the 100 per cent available proceeds are given back in the form of grants primarily to the benefiting organizations and/or communities each year, the spokesperson added.

Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property.
