The Hawaiian Gardens City Council, at its April 23 meeting, got an ear full from angry residents concerning the 55th annual carnival that, for the first time, was held at Fedde Middle School the weekend of April 13. The City first took the time to outline the successes of the carnival. The City needed to use a shuttle, since the carnival was held at Fedde, running from five different locations, the City reported that over 470 passengers used the service. Ticket sales were up from the previous year with presale tickets totaling $65,660,

BELLFLOWER TIGHTENS REGULATIONS ON VACANT BUILDINGS BY TAMMYE MCDUFF In 2009 Bellflower City council adopted regulations to secure and maintain vacant properties. These regulations resulted from the 2008 Recession which caused many properties to be abandoned or remain undeveloped. Identifying property owners and holding them accountable for property maintenance was difficult. The economic turndown caused many property owners to either disappear or leave properties to be foreclosed upon. Many simply did not have sufficient financial resources to properly maintain the properties. The City Council hoped that these regulations would help protect residential and commercial areas from becoming rundown due to negligence of abandoned and vacant properties. With the homeless situation becoming more prevalent in local cities, empty buildings and properties have become unauthorized makeshift housing structures, leaving commercial sites and neighborhoods susceptible to crime and vandalism. In order to try and curb these activities, the City of Bellflower is taking a stronger stance on buildings and houses that are being left un-

UNFINISHED: The baseball/softball field at John Glenn is months behind schedule. The construction company planed to open for the 2019 season which began in February. Meanwhile the football/soccer field is having a grand opening May 14.

BY LOREN KOPFF When John Glenn High had its groundbreaking ceremony in late January of 2018 for its new athletic facilities, it was hard to find anyone who didn’t have a smile on their face. The need for an on-campus football stadium was now a reality instead of a dream and the school would get brand new baseball and softball fields as well. However, unhappy faces have surfaced since the and while there will be an opening ceremony for the football stadium on May 14, all is not well concerning the rest of the athletic fields, which includes the all-synthetic turf baseball and softball fields, beginning with co-athletic director and head baseball coach Jack Brooks. It was understood that the baseball fields were to be completed in time for the 2019 season. But, the soon-to-be athletic fields on the north side of the football stadium are nowhere near completion and there has been little to no talk from anyone as to the reason for the delays, nor a completion date, according to Brooks. “Everything kind of revolved around the football field,” Brooks said. “The football field was the first; the main priority. After they kind of had the layout of that, we kind of started laying out the other fields, the field on the other side of the

football field is kind of the multipurpose soccer practice field. And then the baseball field and obviously the two softball fields.” The first meetings took place about four years ago for the upgrades in the school’s athletic facilities. Then came the passing of the Measure G bond in which Glenn received $25 million out of $375 million that the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District received. Following the groundbreaking at the beginning of 2018, there wasn’t much mentioned about the baseball field. Brooks said he had weekly conversations with school administration as to the progress of the field, but the school administration wasn’t being told much either. It wasn’t until Thanksgiving of 2018 that the baseball personnel began to have major concerns. In the Jan. 26, 2018 issue of the HMG-Community News, Estuardo A. Santillan, Assistant Superintendent, Business Services for the NLMUSD said there would be liquidating damages of $1,000 per day for finishing the project after the target completion date, which was supposed to be December of 2018. For the past two seasons, the varsity baseball team has had to play its home games at Rio Hondo College while the

Whitney High School ranked 14th nationally and 1st among California schools. Cerritos High ranked 434 nationally and 58th among California schools. Artesia was ranked 416 among California schools. Gahr High School ranked 3,630 nationally and 525th among California schools. Anita Narayan, managing editor of education at U.S. News, said the aim of the rankings is simple: give families more information about the schools in their areas.. By evaluating more schools, the new edition expands that focus so all communities can see which schools in their area are successfully serving their students — including historically underserved populations," Narayan said in a news release. Board President Ernie Nishii told HMG-LCCN, "The success of our district and our high schools is a hallmark of the great partnership amongst parents,

and businesses and city leaders." ABCUSD Superintendent Dr. Mary Siue said, "We are very excited that Whitney High School has been selected again by U.S. News and World Report as #1 in California and #14 in the country. Equally as important is the work at Cerritos High School and Gahr High School who also made the list this year. This outcome is the strong collective work of our students, families, staff as well as District support that allows us to constantly improve and to move forward."

p to 41.3 million Americans have already contracted the flu this season, according to the latest estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 500,000 people have been hospitalized because of the virus. Thousands of people have already died of the disease. But an end to flu seasons altogether may not be far off. Several research teams are working on the first "universal vaccine," capable of fighting multiple strains of the virus. Such a treatment could effectively wipe out the disease. These researchers' chief obstacle isn't science but politics. Some radical activists are pushing lawmakers to ban the use of animals in medical research -like studies for a universal flu vaccine. Curbing animal research will consign countless people to preventable suffering and death. Flu season tends to elicit little more than a shrug from most people. But it's surprisingly deadly. Each year, the influenza virus kills as many as 650,000 people worldwide. Last flu season, more than 900,000 Americans were hospitalized and 80,000 died -- the most in 40 years. The death toll would be far worse if not for medical advances made possible by animal research. Tamiflu, the first oral antiviral of its kind, was developed thanks to research in mice, dogs, rats, and ferrets. Scientists created the flu vaccine via research in chickens. The vaccines and treatments currently on the market don't provide total protection against influenza. There are many different strains of the virus, so it's tough to predict which strains will be most prevalent in any given year. That's problematic, because vaccines are manufactured months before flu sea-

son starts. If those vaccines don't match the virus strain that's circulating in a given year, people can fall ill despite having received their shots. Patients desperately need new and better treatment options. And thankfully, research in animals is yielding insights that could lead to universal flu vaccines. Consider the work of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania. They are developing a universal vaccine. When they inoculated mice, rabbits, and ferrets with the experimental therapy, the animals' antibody responses lasted for over 30 weeks -- long enough to be effective throughout flu season. The team intends to advance to human trials in the next two years. And then there's the research in llamas. Just a few months ago, a paper published in the journal Science posited that a nasal spray containing antibodies from llamas could be the key to universal flu prevention. Despite the promise of this research, many activists remain committed to ending animal trials.

They believe that computer models and cell cultures are complete alternatives to animal research. But even the most powerful computers are insufficient to simulate all the chemical and biological processes at work in a living organism fighting a pathogen like the flu. Cell cultures can't capture all the other action going on inside a living body -- some of which may have an unforeseen impact on its effort to fight an invader like the influenza virus. Ferret models have yielded especially informative insights for researchers, since two of the most common flu strains in humans also naturally infect these animals. Within a decade, scientists could feasibly wipe out the all-too-common influenza virus, which kills hundreds of thousands of people each year -- as long as activists don't deprive them of the essential research. Matthew R. Bailey is president of the Foundation for Biomedical Research.

AVENGERS:ENDGAME BREAKS ALL OPENING WEEKEND RECORDS BY ETHAN MULLER LA MIRADA HIGH SCHOOL Normally, the opening lines of any professional movie review would offer an interesting hook to make readers have some sort of intrigue as to what a certain film offers, such as an anecdote from the critic or something similar. But as I tried to write out my honest opinions on Avengers: Endgame I found that to be completely unnecessary: The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) ETHAN is so ingrained into MULLER the popular culture of today that trying to introduce it to anyone would be completely pointless. If you are reading this review, you already know what to expect, so I shall deliver: Avengers: Endgame is a crowning achievement in cinematic history where somehow, an epic-length, ensemblecasted culmination of 21 films could be both completely gratifying while also leaving me wanting to see more. Literally everything from the performances of every actor and actress, the intense and frankly indistinguishable from real-life special effects, to the grandiose musical score by Alan Silvestri, to even the plot which incorporates mechanics

of sci-fi that are incredibly difficult to do correctly have all been done to what probably will be the highest quality film the franchise will ever achieve. Shocker, I know, but that’s what one should expect from the Russo Brothers and company. The plot itself concerns the aftermath of the previous MCU film, Avengers: Infinity War: Thanos has won and half of all life is completely eradicated. The Avengers - at least what are left of them, now joined by newcomer Captain Marvel, the previously MIA Hawkeye, and the also MIA Ant-Man, come together to try and finally put a stop to Thanos and restore the universe to what it was previ-

ously. Without spoiling anything - and believe me, this is incredibly hard - the plot goes from there with tons of twists, turns, and a fulfillment of so many previous film Easter Eggs and plot threads, trying to list every single one of them would be longer than the film itself. While this can be considered the films’ biggest strength - its internal consistency - I also consider it one of its few weaknesses. If you are looking to get into this 10-year spanning franchise, Endgame should be everything but your first choice. It is so wrapped in its own continuity that the act of jumping in with zero prior knowledge seems like a nearly insurmountable task, and many

of the films’ best moments will be lost if you don’t know their buildup. So, if you have to start somewhere and have a few months to kill, try and make the starting point Iron Man and work from there, assuming you can somehow go spoilerfree for four months at minimum. Overall, Avengers: Endgame is about as good as you’d expect: the culmination of 10 years of buildup into a massive epic that will likely not be surpassed for years to come. By the time the credits roll, you will walk out of the theater feeling like everything was answered - assuming you knew what the questions were to begin with.

SAN GABRIEL VALLEY LEAGUE BASEBALL

GAHR HIGH CAPTURES ANOTHER SAN GABRIEL VALLEY LEAGUE BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER PARAMOUNT-When the San Gabriel Valley League baseball season began on Mar. 19, Gahr High was nipped by Paramount High 7-6 as the Pirates scored twice in the top of the seventh inning. The Gladiators dropped to 1-12 at the time but now, they are league champions all by themselves, the fifth straight season they have been on top of the league. Gahr benefited from an erratic Jonathan Largaespada, who threw six wild pitches and hit five batters in the first three innings and went on to win 6-3 last Friday. The Gladiators entered the CIF-Southern Section Division 1 playoffs 13-15-1 overall, 8-2 in the circuit. It’s the first time since 2008 that Gahr has entered the playoffs with a losing mark. Still, the program has won 14 league championships in the past 22 seasons. “I think it’s a credit to our seniors,” said Gahr head coach Gerardo Perez. “There is a history here, a tradition. They do believe in the four letters in the front [of the uniform]. It hasn’t been easy. It doesn’t come with the maturity of some sophomores and some unselfishness of some seniors.” “I’m just proud of all these guys,” said senior shortstop Edward Morales. “I think without them, we wouldn’t be where we’re at today. I thank all the seniors for their hard work and the young guys for coming out and being leaders as well. It’s all about

the team right now and it’s a great win.” By virtue of a better record in the second round over Warren High, and other tiebreakers won, the Gladiators knew before the game that they would go in as the first place representatives from the league. The only thing left to be determined was would Gahr win the league outright, or be one of four teams ties with 7-3 league records? On the first pitch of the game, sophomore third baseman Matthew Polk tripled to the left field gap and came home on a wild pitch when Largaespada had a full count on sophomore catcher Jorge Renteria. On the next pitch, sophomore second baseman Matt Kurata, who had been hit by Photo by Loren Kopff a pitch, moved from second to home on the second wild pitch of the inning.

CARNIVAL from page 1 with onsite ride tickets tallying $50,819. 276 unlimited ride wristbands were sold at $25 each, no report was given about last year’s wristband sales. Mayor Myra Maravilla noted, “I know that we changed a lot of things this year, and I am really pleased with how many used the shuttle service and the wristbands. Just want to thank everyone that helped to put on this event. I have never seen that many people attend one of our city events.” Each City Council member then took turns talking about the success of the carnival. But not everyone at the meeting agreed with Maravilla and the Council. The night of the carnival, HMG-LCCN was sent pictures and videos of Sheriff’s holding shotguns and was told of a possible shooting; the callers also said the carnival was on lockdown for over an hour. A later statement by the City indicated it was a gang fight and no shooting had occurred. Yet Lakewood Sheriff’s Sergeant Maese stated at the council meeting that a hand gun was confiscated from one young male, “whether or not he was going to use that on the premises, we don’t know.” Maese continued, “there was a small fight with high school students, in my opinion it was not a gang fight. There were some associates from local gangs, but that broke up rather quickly. Approximately 15 minutes after the juvenile incident there was a pursuit that was related to a drunk driver which was unrelated to any carnival incident. It did end up at the carnival and we had officers rush to protect those residents that were waiting in line. The helicopter was related to this incident and we did close the gates for 36 minutes.” Maravilla followed up saying the sheriffs were holding shotguns, but they were yellow indicating that they had stun bags and not shotgun shells and “were only de-

ployed because of the pursuit.” Resident Joe Cabrera got so angry that he was removed from chambers. “This is disinformation, you have propagated this in your carnival presentation. We were just told money was made and this was reason enough to obscenely disrupt the lives of our children.” Former Mayor and Councilman Reynaldo Rodriguez slammed the council saying, “I hate to rain on your parade but after all this patting yourselves on the back it was not all that great. For you, the council and even the sheriff’s department to say nothing serious happened at that carnival is deplorable. There were ten sheriff patrol cars, one helicopter that was called to an incident that occurred on that Saturday. And what’s more the sheriffs came with their weapons. The sheriff department confined the area for approximately one hour. You couldn’t get in or out." Rodriquez continued, “ABCUSD Vice President Olga Rios made the comment at their board meeting about the alleged shooting and how frightening it was, so don’t pretend that nothing happened!” Rodroguez finished, “I also heard that numerous residents had attempted to contact city hall regarding the police activity and were told that nothing significant had taken place.” “You better think about what you are doing. There just might be a [City Council] recall in the near future.”

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.

The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

Continued from page 1 varsity softball team called Zimmerman Park its home this past season. “I was told December of 2018 that we would have a field for this regular season,” Brooks said. “That was always the plan; that was the original release date. We were supposed to have our baseball season on this field of this year. The 2019 season was supposed to be played at Glenn.” Brooks said the school was not told early enough in the 2018-2019 academic year by anybody that it wasn’t going to have a field and added there was no communication. As a result, it was difficult to find a site to play the 2019 home games. In addition, the team has had to practice at Zimmerman Park, just north of the school and Brooks said it has been hard to get parents and fans out to the home games. “It’s more about the kids,” Brooks said. “I have a great senior group that hasn’t played at Glenn for two years; hasn’t had a chance to practice for two years and I really feel bad for this group of seniors and their parents that have not had a chance to see them play. It’s been really difficult for the program and it’s really hurt the program in terms of numbers.” The baseball team just completed a 13-

This alternative use of land for Bio Fuel, specifically Sugar Cane, is combined with drip irrigation to develop the most ethanol per acre in arid lands. Waste products which are the fibrous husks, stalks and other discarded biomass, produce bagasse, the dry pulpy residue left after the extraction of juice from sugar cane, used as fuel for electricity generation by combustion. Studies have determined that replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, such as algae, have the capability of reducing CO2 emissions by up to 80%. The key to algae's potential as a renewable fuel source lies in the high productivities of algal biomass that can be grown in a given area; some researchers say algae could be 100 times more productive than traditional bioenergy feedstocks. Achieving the potential for these high productivities in the real-world is a key challenge to realizing the promise algal biofuels. Currently, there is a six square mile parcel located in the Rio Solare project on the Nevada side of the Colorado River that is twice the size of any current algae farm. A 300 acre parcel on the Colorado River was once a working golf course with a 14 story hotel tower that was stopped in mid-construction. The shell of this vacant, concrete building is slated to be the nation’s tallest and largest vertical farm. Along this parcel will be an ecological park aimed to protecting ecosystems through the demonstration of natural habitats in a park setting. The Emerald River Eco Park would be without parallel and become a world destination for learning and recreation. For more information visit www.riosolare.com

in the Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN) and General Relief Opportunities for Work (GROW) programs. Both programs are part of the County’s welfareto-work initiative. Ten GAIN and GROW participants prepared a five-course lunch for the ceremony, and students received certificates from the College for completing a rigorous five-week culinary training course. The Cerritos College Economic Development office coordinated the five-week program with the College’s Culinary Arts department. With over 125 hours of training, the students learned invaluable skills that will contribute toward their long-term career goals.

“Having a chance to see the students’ positive attitude every week was very rewarding because they showed their own desire to learn how to be culinary art professionals,” said Chef Juan Lopez, the instructor of the program. “Our goal is to establish a career pathway for people who are passionate about having an occupation. We help them to become more self-reliant through gainful employment,” said Belle Gomez, Director of Community Advancement at Cerritos College. “We hope the students will continue their education and earn an official certificate or degree through our credit program.”
