Hews Media Group-Community News Exclusive
FBI INFORMANT SAYS CENTRAL BASIN WATER DISTRICT RIGGED BIDS
By Brian Hews and Randy Economy
In an exclusive interview, Michael Franchek, the owner of EccoGreen Services based in San Diego County, told Hews Media Group-Community News that he has been interviewed extensively by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding a complex case of bid rigging and influence peddling that directly involves former Assemblyman Tom Calderon, and former Bell Mayor George Cole. The massive federal criminal probe appears to be centered on the Calderons, the Southeast Los Angeles County political family that has been in elected to public of-
fice for the past three decades and the Central Basin Municipal Water District. Current State Senator Ronald Calderon
Charles Calderon, who also served in the California State Senate, is no longer in power but his son Ian Calderon, 27, is fol-

Local Firefighters Raise Money for MDA
Members of LA County Fire Department Stations 31 and 34 spent this past Friday “filling the boot.” The annual campaign raises money for the MDA. Firefighters were stationed from 9 am to 1 pm at every corner of the intersection at Artesia and Pioneer holding their fireman’s boot which drivers, who were sitting at the traffic light, would put money into for donations. Officals told LCCN that LA County alone would raise well over $300,000 in three days and that the firefighter’s donations from all over the country will be the largest contributor to the MDA.

lowing in the footsteps of this father and two uncles as a Freshman Assemblyman from the 57th District. Tom Calderon’s son Cameron Calderon is also eying his first run for public office in 2014 and has already been elected to serve as a Member of the powerful Los
Angeles County Democratic Party Central Committee. FBI officials have been tight-lipped about the scope of their probe thus far but informant Franchek told Hews Media Group-Community News (HMG-CN) that Federal officials questioned him about how Tom Calderon and George Cole have been on the receiving end of lucrative contracts doled out by several public agencies including those at Central Basic Municipal Water District (CBMWD). CBMWD services dozens of local municipalities in Southeast Los Angeles County including the cities of Cerritos, Norwalk, Montebello, Downey, Pico Rivera, Bell, Huntington Park and several others in the area. “Everyone who works at the CBMWD literally bows to Tom Calderon and George

Norwalk Residents Blast Proposed Sewer Pipe Tax Plan
Artesia City Council Rethinks Downtown Parking Violation Fees
By Randy Economy Randy@CerritosNews.net
By Rico Dizon
A proposed tax by city officials aiming to revamp Norwalk aged sewer pipe system has been met with strong negative reaction from longtime residents and small business owners. The proposed tax idea was put forward by City Manager Mike Egan in attempt to raise needed funds to upgrade and rebuild the municipality’s underground water pipes, some that have not been replaced in nearly 60 years. At a Norwalk City Council meeting recently, several residents took to the podium to denounce the tax hike proposal. Resident Patricia Howe blasted city council members by saying, “everything
A new ordinance in the City of Artesia that seeks to reduce the downtown pay parking violation fee from $58 to $40 was deferred for adoption due to new apprehensions and confusions that the City Council received from members of the public. Expected to be adopted after second reading during the City Council regular meeting last June 10, the Council instead, upon Council Member Miguel Canales suggestion, formed an ad hoc committee to “thresh out the issues and facilitate the implementation of said ordinance.” Mayor Sally Flowers said, “I received reports that when people add coins to their first deposit the latter is automati-

Continued from page 1 Cole,â€? Franchek said. Franchek told HMG-CN that FBI Agents have interviewed him about specific large dollar contracts awarded by CBMWD to the Oldtimers Foundation and Water2Save, a Solana Beach company of which Tom Calderon is a Board Member. Cole is a former elected Director of CBMWD and has been cashing in on his political ties through the non-profit Oldtimers Foundation for at least the past two decades. Franchek said that in addition to Cole and Tom Calderon, he has been extensively questioned by FBI agents about three additional key figures; past CBMWD elected director Rudy Montalvo, former General Manager Art Aguilar, and Sally Zuniga Flowers, a former purchasing manager with the CBMWD. Flowers is also the current Mayor of the City of Artesia, as well as a past President of the California Contracts Cities Association. Connecting Central Basin â€œIn July of 2009, I connected with Central Basin Water District,â€? Franchek said. At that time he said his firm dealt with both local public water agencies and that he had successfully negotiated winning contracts from the US Government. â€œBack then, 80% of our revenue came from local water districts, and 20% came from Federal water resource projects, and our firm had a reputation for being able to deliver solid work,â€? Franchek said. He said during 2009 his company EccoGreen Services, created marketing promotional materials and sent them out to every water district in California including the Metropolitan Water District, West Basin Municipal Water District and Central
Basin. Franchek told HMG-CN that he received a call from Flowers who at the time was working for CBMWD as a Vendor Contracting Executive. â€œSally called me and said we got a major project and it sounds like something you might qualify for, so I decided to bid on it,â€? said Franchek. Franchek said that it was the practice of CBMWD to only send bid projects out to three or four preselected vendors and that he later realized that â€œthey already know who was going to get a contract well before it is ever going to be sent out for public bid.â€? â€œThe deck was totally stacked in favor of Tom Calderon and George Cole at CBMWD, no one else had a chance to apply, they control the votes on the Board of Directors and they control the people who run the CBMWD,â€? Franchek said. Toilet Bid He said that one of the projects he sought was significant in value and involved retrofitting over 2,000 toilets for customers who reside and own businesses in the City of Maywood. â€œIt was put to me (from Flowers) that city officials in Maywood did not have the expertise needed to complete the project so they contacted CBMWD to do it for them,â€? Franchek said. â€œMy firm was without doubt one of the most qualified to win that project, there is no question about it,â€? he said. â€œWe have done this same type of retrofitting for other water agencies and districts up and down California for years.â€? Franchek said that Flowerâ€™s portrayed herself as objective during the bidding process. â€œShe was coaching us, and supporting our company during that bid. I donâ€™t have an ax to grind with Sally Flowers, I really donâ€™t, she was following up with great

DUI Checkpoint Rolls into Norwalk Saturday night By Randy Economy The Norwalk Sheriff’s Station, in conjunction with the City of Norwalk Department of Public Safety, will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on Saturday, June 15, 2013 at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often enough. Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of having drugs and driving while impaired

Downey High student wins photography contest Downey High School student Ana Preciado won the best in show award in the California Streaming Digitial Photography Contest with her photo "The Window." Eight of her classmates received honorable mentions. Preciado's winning photo is titled "The Window." In her contest entry, the 17-year-old described the image: "A man looks at his grandson playing outside; a man who is from a completely different world than that of the child on the other side of the window. From a different time, from a different country, from a different life ... This man worked for what he wanted "" to give his children, his grandchildren, his lineage a life he could only dream of. And in that moment of realization, that you are a part of something so much bigger than yourself, begs for a small smile ... That because of you, the child on the other side of the window has a life that once seemed so far away. In that small smile, he is free.”

Valley Christian football welcomes new coach in first ever spring game By Loren Kopff Although he was hired in early April, the Woodie Grayson era at Valley Christian officially began last Friday night when the school held its inaugural spring football game. In a battle between 22 players wearing maroon jerseys and another 22 wearing white tops, the game was played to a scoreless tie. But it wasn’t about who won or how many touchdowns were scored. It was about promoting V.C. football, especially with Grayson becoming the 13th head football coach in the 68 years the school has had a football team. It was about bringing the V.C. community closer with the upcoming new team that will kick off the 2013 season on Aug. 30 at Duarte. “It was really just a simple concept when Woodie and I talked about it,” said V.C. athletic director Zac Chan. “We wanted something to just culminate the spring practices. We didn’t want to end and say, ‘see you in the summer’. We wanted something fun and something the kids can look forward to; a tradition that hopefully we can build on for years and years and years to come.” “It was just a great atmosphere tonight,” Grayson said. “It felt like an August Friday night, a September Friday night. To have the canteen open, the band and all of the people in the stands, it just felt like a real Friday night football game. I thought it was important to set that tone.” Chan said he received 75 applications when the job became available following the departure of former head coach Erick Streelman. A committee of eight people, including Chan, narrowed that number to 18 and from that, invited 10 for an interview. Three people were then called back for a second interviewed and Grayson won over the committee, mostly because of three specific qualities the committee was looking for. Chan said the candidate’s faith and where he goes to church, his football knowledge and the understanding of a small school system were of the upmost importance in the hiring process. “There were three things that we were looking at for every candidate,” Chan said. “You look for 10 or 12 different qualities within each individual. But there were three that we really focused on that we felt Woodie was the only candidate that met all three.”
Grayson grew up in the Brethren Christian school environment and had spent the past 19 seasons at Mayfair High School, six of which as the co-head coach with Mike Fitch. Chan added that the student body at V.C. extends as far east as Brea and as far west as Torrance but V.C. is still considered a community school. As for the game, Adam Range of the maroon squad led everyone with 97 rushing yards on 15 carries while Jonathan Nicholson of the white team had 32 yards on 11 touches. Chandler Vos on the maroon side caught four passes for 51 yards, all coming from jack Struiksma. “In a spring game, it’s hard to get a run game going,” Grayson said. “But for those young guys up front to actually make some blocks and open up some holes at times to give those backs a place to run…Range ran hard and Nicholson ran well with speed when he had daylight. The quarterbacks, I thought, performed pretty well.”
Cerritos club soccer team getting its kicks in short amount of time By Loren Kopff Wherever Joul Farah is, a soccer team isn’t far behind. The former successful Gahr High School girls varsity soccer head coach has now put together another club team based in Cerritos. In April of 2009, Farah took over the Downey FC Under-11 team and one year later, started the Cerritos Football Club Liverpool Under-12 team. In just three years, the team has climbed up the ladders as one of the top club teams in Southern California. When Farah took over the silver-level team in 2009, it had six players after the team was going to disband. At the time, the team finished the season in third place in the premier division. Over the past couple of years, the team has gotten stronger and stronger. Last season, the team finished in sixth place and allowed 27 goals with an inexperienced goalkeeper between the pipes. The Liverpool advanced to the semifinals of the league cup before losing to North Huntington Beach in a shootout despite outshooting NHB 28-2. “It’s all over the field,” Farah said of his team’s strengths. “Especially right now since we picked up a goalie that is probably the best goalie I’ve ever had. I [also] picked up a sweeper and I picked up a midfielder. They’re making a huge impact on the team.”
JUNE 14, 2013
When the high school season concluded in March, the team went to the Eclipse Showcase in San Juan Capistrano and finished in third place. After that, it was off to nationals in Lancaster and the Liverpool advanced to the round of 32 where the squad fell to the eventual champions, the San Gabriel Valley-based Albion, in a shootout. The latest adventure for the Liverpool, now an Under-15 team was a trip to the Avalanche Tournament in Park City, UT, a college showcase. The team played three games, losing twice and tying the other one. Farah said in order to be accepted in college showcases, you have to be a high level premier team. In August, the Liverpool will become an Under-16 team but before that, the team is looking to play in more showcases. The CFC Liverpool also has an Under 11-team, coached by Farah’s daughter and former St. Joseph High standout Natalie Farah. While in high school, the prolific scorer received a four-year scholarship to the University of Oregon but played at Cypress College. Alongside Natalie Farah is former Valley Christian star Jackie Roman, a key component of the Lady Crusader’s defense during her high school days. This is Roman’s first coaching experience anywhere. “They are in the same place that the older ones were four years ago,” Joul Farah said of the younger team. “We just need to pick up a few more players.” “They’re getting it; they want to be there,” Roman said. “We have a bunch of girls out there who love to come and play. They’re learning how to play as a team. They see the older girls and a lot of them strive to be like them.” Roman was also a player under many of Joul Farah’s successful and mostly unbeatable club teams and the fact that he is in charge of the CFC Liverpool program, it’s making Roman’s coaching debut much smoother. “I just try to think back to what he was teaching me as a kid,” Roman said. “So, I try to instill that into them now. It’s nice because if I have a question, he’s right there giving me advice.” Among the teams that Joul Farah has coach have been the AYSO Dream Team, the Cerritos Illusion and Gahr, where he had three successful seasons. In fact, in the three seasons before he took over Gahr, with three different coaches, the Gladiators went 5-44-4. In Joul Farah’s first season at Gahr, the team went 11-52 and barely missed the playoffs. Since he left coaching high school, the Gahr program has had four straight losing seasons. But one major problem facing the CFC Liverpool has been a place to practice. Joul Farah says he’s getting no help from the city of Cerritos

“I’ve lived in Cerritos for so many years and even when I coached in AYSO, we made a name for Cerritos,” Farah said. “A lot of teams didn’t even know where Cerritos was. Because we won, [people] got to know Cerritos. I always have a special place in my heart for Cerritos. “The only problem is [the city] of Cerritos will not work with us to give us fields to have our team play in Cerritos,” he continued. “We’re practicing in Norwalk, we’re practicing here and there and we would love to practice in Cerritos because we are always making a positive name for Cerritos.” The members of the CFC Liverpool Under-15 team are: Emilie Botello, Kayla Delgado, Amanda Duran, Emily Flores, Miranda Flores, Sabrina Gonza-

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 will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. 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. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 877-484-9942 or 800-280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site www.USA-Foreclosure.com or www.Auction.com using the file number assigned to this case 7037.100489.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court.
