os Cerritos Community Newspaper has learned that the city of Bell has remained unaudited for the past three years, including the critical period in which former indicted City Manager Robert Rizzo and seven other city officials were arrested on criminal charges for looting the city’s treasury for their own personal use. LCCN has obtained documentation this week in the form of an internal emails authored by Bell City Manager Doug Willmore that confirm that the accounting that the audits for 2009-2010 are “expected to be done in the next 30 days” by the accounting firm of Macias Gini & O’Connell. “The financial and accounting irregu-

he Dolphin Fountain at the entrance to the Cerritos City Hall has been a cooling off attraction for youngsters that makes adults pause as they go to the library or climb the city hall stairs to conduct their business. July 4 was no different as youngsters cooled off in the fountain’s water, bringing back memories when they were younger and did the same. They pause, smile and then continue on their way. The children oblivious to the adults watching them.

CITIES MAKE PAYMENTS TO STATE By Jerry Bernstein

T

he cities of Cerritos, Artesia and Hawaiian Gardens were notified by the state they had to make payment on money it says the cities owe related to the dissolution of their Redevelopment Agencies authorized by an act of the state legislature signed by the Governor on June 27. Cerritos City Manager Art Gallucci said the city received an e-mail [demand] on July 9 at 5 p.m. calling for a payment of $6 million by July 12 at 5 p.m. He said e-mail arrived just prior to the city council meeting but would not effect the budget because city had anticipated what the amount might be and was prepared for the hit. The city of Hawaiian Gardens had to pay $74,207. Artesia officials were in a meeting at press time and could not be reached. At the July 9 city council meeting, Cerritos Assistant City Manager Kathy Matsumoto gave a brief report on AB1484, the Redevelopment Budget Trailer Bill that was signed by the Governor on June 27. The 73 page document expanded the powers of the Department of Finance, empowering them to suspend the payment of sales taxes and property taxes to successor agencies if they do not make a payment of property taxes to other local taxing agencies by July 12. The $6 million allegedly will be paid to the local taxing agencies. Matsumoto said the bill also allows the Department to impose $10,000 a day in fines to the successor agencies. She said the League of California Cities has called the bill unconstitutional as sales taxes that are used at the local level and the reallocation of property taxes requires a 2/3 vote of the legislature which AB1484 did not receive.

Weekly Crime Summary

July 2, 2012 - July 8, 2012 There were 27 Part I felony crimes investigated last week, up from 22 the week before. Vehicle burglaries increased, robberies remained the same, while residential and commercial burglaries along with vehicle thefts dropped. 281 calls for service were handled by patrol personnel, up from 263. The current 2012 weekly average in calls for service is 267 For the second consecutive week, there were no robberies reported. Residential burglaries were down from three to one last week. An open win-

dow was the point of entry in the lone case where a loss could not be initially determined. The 2012 weekly average in residential burglaries is now 4.3 Open windows equal easy access for the burglar. Don’t make anything easy on the criminal. Make sure that your residence is secured prior to leaving. Commercial burglaries were down from four to one last week. A closed business was targeted and a security camera was taken. The 2012 weekly average in “other structure”/commercial burglaries is 1.8. Vehicle burglaries increased from seven to nine. Six of the crimes last week occurred in high-volume commercial parking lots. Eight were SUVs. Purses, wallets, ID, cell phones, plumbing tools, cash, a garage remote control and a DMV disabled placard were taken. In addition to those items, third-row seats were removed from SUVs. The 2012 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 7.6. Garage door remote control devices are of valuable use to a residential burglar. It is almost like giving the thief a key to your home. Think about locking it in the trunk if you must park outside, or take it with you. Vehicle thefts were down from five to four last week. Three of the cases were from lots. Two Hondas and two Toyotas were stolen. The new 2012 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 3.4. ANY form of an anti-theft device is better than nothing at all. A wide range exists from simple steering wheel locks to global positioning satellite tracking (GPS). Steering wheel locking devices can cost as little as $30.00 and are a visual deterrent. Use of these devices tells the would-be thief to find an easier target.

It was written in memory of the firefighters who gave up their lives on the 9-11 attack on the twin towers in their attempt to get people out of the towers. “I think the entire country not only felt their loss but also for the people who were trapped in the towers as well as the victims in the airplanes that crashed into them. “I said. You know,” he said, “I sometimes wonder if we Americans take too many things for granted.” “Like what?” I asked. “Well for one thing, here in California we expect our leaders in Sacramento to do what is right. For instance, our schools have been downgraded into the bottom third in the country. Most Districts have cut back because the state legislature and the governor refuse to tackle the economic problems facing the state.” “Wait a minute,” I said, “The governor has a tax increase on the November ballot that will reduce the budget deficit by approximately $9 billion.” “I know,” my Friend from Fruitcake, said. That leaves a deficit balance of approximately $7 billion. How is that going to be covered? he asked. I looked at my friend and replied, “I don’t really know.”

“What gives me hope,” he said, “is a little city like Hawaiian Gardens that is giving your local school district $88,500 thousand so their kids can go to summer school. They didn’t have to do that, but the city council takes seriously the city’s motto “Our Youth is our Future.” “Hawaiian Gardens is a small city, ninetenth of a square mile, and it has a casino that provides revenue and keeps the city’s budget balanced and puts money into the city reserve.” I said. “Most important the city council believes it’s important that their children attend summer school.” “That leads me to another subject.” my Friend from Fruitcake said. “What’s going to happen at ABC, now that the court has ruled the “evidence” used against the former Stower’s principal Eileen Blagden, to remove her from her job as principal at Stower’s Elementary School was ruled as being fabricated by the Superior Court? “I don’t know,” I replied, The District and Mrs. Blageden are meeting July 17 at Mandatory Settlement Conference. Hopefully they’ll reach agreement on a settlement. If not the case will go to trial.” “My Friend from Fruitcake, Florida asked what happened to the teacher.” “I understand he had moved to northern California.” “That’s what we were told,” I replied,

“but when we last checked, he was still residing in Long Beach.” My Friend from Fruitcake, Florida looked at me. This brings me back to the poem I found in my files,” he said. How’s that? I asked. The poem is entitled “Giving a Life.” It starts as follows: “It’s twenty past the hour now The stations neat and clean. They’ve had their morning exercise, Their bodies are tough and lean. They know their job’s to Serve and Protect. Sometimes they just can’t wait. But none of them knew what was near On that September date.” He paused and said. Shouldn’t the District staff and superintendent worked with the principal instead of sweeping it under the rug. Where were the firemen to protect the principal, school staff and most of all the school children? “I don’t know,” I replied. “I’ll tell you where they were,” he said. They were too busy protecting themselves, lifting the rug so they could swept the problem under the rug.” The allegory was correct, but I decided not to say anything. After a few minutes, my Friend from Fruitcake, Florida got up from his chair and left.

ARTESIA MAYOR'S COLUMN

Progress Reveals Herself on Artesia’s Thoroughfares

F

orty-five years ago, a man named Richard Salisbury won a contest put on by the City of Artesia, which at the time had ten years of incorporation under its belt. The contest Artesia Mayor was to give the city a JOHN LYON motto, and the words that Mr. Salisbury had chosen were, “Service builds tomorrow’s progress.” Since then, progress has been building and this year is no exception. Even despite economic hardships, we as a City are pulling out all the stops this year. For example, we recently were recognized for our efforts on Artesia Blvd. with the 2012 Compass Blueprint Award for Achievement in Livability by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). This is impressive because SCAG represents plenty of cities, and to be recognized among so many cities means that

what we’ve done is truly remarkable. On Pioneer Blvd. today, we can witness some of the spirit that Mr. Salisbury must have envisioned for the new city. We can also see the obstacles that such spirits often must overcome. Wh ile the final piece of downtown Pioneer’s renewal was under way, the State’s Department of Finance decided on a technicality that it won’t let the City use the redevelopment money that was already set aside for the project. The DOF informed the Successor Agency to the Artesia Redevelopment Agency (or just “Successor Agency) that it rejected the three contracts which were involved with the project.

that almost all of us (there will always be exceptions) will love what we have in store for downtown. Just to give you the reader a hint about what’s coming, the project boundaries for Pioneer Blvd. are between 183rd and Pioneer, and 188th and Pioneer . The plan is to build a narrow median of various widths which will feature palms, climbing roses, lantana, Australian poppies, and ground cover. These plants will be drought resistant and help conserve water while also creating beautiful scenery. The plants will be watered through a drip and bubble irrigation system which will be operated by solar timers.

The Successor Agency will be amending the documentation that governs these contracts on June 27, and will resubmit these documents tothe DOF for approval.

Along the sides of the street will be ‘bulb planters for various trees. Also along the street will be different types of ‘street furniture’, like benches for example.

40 years ago Pioneer Blvd. was still the place to be in the region. Later, when the malls started popping up, the public’s interest became dispersed. But still, the cultural delights that we find downtown have created such a niche that it can and does compete well with surrounding markets. Being that downtown Artesia is probably the biggest financial engine for our City, it makes sense to invest in it. I truly believe

The previous quote is the words of Richard Nixon back in the days of the infamous Watergate crimes and cover-up that eventually forced Nixon from the White House. They were probably the words of Acting Mayor Bruce Barrows with regard to Barrows’ admitted battery of Cerritos resident Jay Gray. What did he do and when did he do it? The facts are plain; Bruce Barrows admits to committing battery upon Cerritos resident Jay Gray. Barrows’ own account of the incident to the Cerritos Sherriff’s Office states that Barrows initially profaned Gray, calling him an a**hole BEFORE Barrows says Gray responded “Your wife doesn’t think so” which then resulted in Barrows’ actions, in Barrows own words “I LOST CONTROL” resulting in a clear case of BATTERY; grabbing and pushing Gray in a threatening manner, indicating a threat of bodily harm. Gray withdrew pressing legal charges against Barrows in order to give Barrows the opportunity to do the right thing; apologize publicly, tell the truth and own up for his actions, instead Barrows has engaged himself and the City of Cerritos in a shameless cover-up. At a recent city council meeting from up on the dais, Barrows contradicted his own account by claiming that he was “Defending the honor of my wife” A cowardly and patently false obfuscation of what really happened.

HEWS MEDIA GROUP • JULY 13, 2012

to own up to his actions? Curiously, the Cerritos City Council went on the attack, cutting their print advertising from the Los Cerritos Community News after LCCN printed the Barrows story and demanded answers from the silent city council and city management. Why all of a sudden, after MILLIONS of lost revenue on the Performing Arts Center, is it necessary to cut PRINT advertising in LCCN? This is an obvious attempt at taking punitive measures against Publisher Brian Hews to silence the paper that exposed ousted L.A. County Tax Assessor Noguez under a corruption scandal. Will ‘Barrowsgate’ be the downfall of a Cerritos City Council that appears to be in collusion with Barrows to lie, deny and get by’? Losing Control in Public Office: Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is reportedly undergoing treatment for a “Mood Disorder” but his office only came forward with this revelation, months after he took a leave from his elected duties and under pressure from congressional colleagues. Unlike Barrows, Congressman Jackson, never assaulted a constituent but the stigma of mental illness was apparently too great to come forward in a forthright manner and admit his problem. Barrows has not only not been forthright he has devised a delusional version that contradicts his own testimony and that of eye witnesses. Barrows may in fact have a psychological problem and definitely has displayed out-of-control anger issues but his latent maniacal tendencies go unattended while Barrows drags the city of Cerritos deeper into his cover-up.

any years ago my wife introduced me to Mexican food. Until then I was a New England steak and lobster man. It only took me a short time, like the first meal, to add Mexican food to my menu. Recently, I was asked to do a review on a Mexican restaurant, Su Casa Garcia in La Mirada. “What do I know about writing a restaurant review,” I said. “Go,” I was told. “You’ll do fine.” Su Casa Garcia is a Mexican Chipotie Grill located at 13926 Imperial Highway in La Mirada is in a strip mall. When I walked into the restaurant I was surprised. Most Mexican restaurants I’ve gone to are enclosed and dark. Su Casa Garcia was light, airy and inviting. I was greeted by Shantel, the owner’s daughter, who led me to a table. “Can I get you something to drink?” she asked. “A glass of water,” I replied. Shantel handed me a menu and as I scanned it, I said, “This is a big menu.” She smiled. I asked her if she could sit down for a few minutes while I asked a few questions. She told me her father, Juan Dior bought the restaurant four months ago and has been remodeling it. Juan later told me he bought the restaurant for the family. I noticed the walls were decorated with oil paintings and was told they were painted by local La Mirada artists and yes, they are for sale. They come in once a month and replace them with new paintings, Shantel explained. The restaurant’s tables and chairs are hand-made and were imported from Mexico, Future plans call for Mexican native plants to decorate the restaurant and eventually an old church statue will take its place in the restaurant. Juan walked me to the back door and asked me what I saw. I said a screen door. He closed the outside door and suddenly the screen door came to life with a famous Mexican pianist on it. As we walked back to the table, Juan was beaming with pride. I looked at the menu and commented everything was below $12 with the average breakfast and lunch costing $7. The luncheon menu offered a variety of dishes, including a Texas Style Burrito, Taco or Tostada with a choice of meat. It also offered a Carne Asada which consists of charbroiled thin steak, rice, beans, guacamole and a totilla. There was also an Enchilada Plate. I ordered the Texas Style Tosada with chicken. I wasn’t disappointed with my selection. The menu also offers an “all you can eat” buffet with soups made daily. For those who wish a lighter lunch there are torita,

BELL AUDITS

Continued from page 1 larities that they have encountered have been massive and much larger than anyone could have expected. The backup data needed to perform a complete and thorough audit has been missing, misfiled, or misplaced,” Willmore told members of the Bell City Council this week in an internal email that was obtained by Los Cerritos Community Newspaper. Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to LCCN on Wednesday that their office “was aware of it” but stressed that the DA has not received anything officials from city officials in Bell about the new found possible impropriates. “Some of the items (in the audit) were presented to the County Grand Jury in the

www.LosCerritosNews.net past,” Gibbons said. She also pointed out that a new Grand Jury is impaneled every six weeks and that if there is new evidence of a crime that comes from the audit that a new case could be prepared and presented. Cities, like counties and other local government agencies must produce annual financial statements and use outside auditors to review those statements. Hallye Jordon, Deputy Controller of Communications said that these audits are used to determine the city’s financial position, its ability to meet its obligations, and the performance of the city’s management and governing board. “The purpose of any quality-control review is to ensure the city’s contracted

not elaborate on specific details. Both Barrows and Gray were directed to appear at the hearing to determine if a formal criminal complaint and charges are to be filed against suspect Barrows. Barrows was accused of grabbing Gray after a city council budget session back on June 5 outside the city council chambers. “Barrows grabbed me, and threw me, and

yanked at my jacket and neck tie,” Gray told LCCN after the incident took place. Gray caught Barrow’s ire after he made public comments about various city priorities for the upcoming fiscal year. Gray in turn was accused of Disturbing the Peace by Barrows. Barrows attended the meeting with an attorney, LCCN was told, and Gray attended the meeting without legal representation. Both were mandated to bring a copy of the formal complaint notice, and any documents, pictures or witnesses that were “deemed” necessary to assist the District Attorney in reaching a determination on the case that was filed by members of the Cerritos Sheriff’s Department.

TO ADVERTISE CALL 800-901-7211 complaint against Gray was dismissed. Sandi Gibbons, spokesperson for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office would not comment on the specifics of the Barrows hearing on Monday afternoon. “We don’t comment about what takes place in Office Hearings,” Gibbons said. “We can say that normally in cases such as this, the suspect involved is usually mandated to a program such as community service work, or other programs such as anger management,” she said. “Hearings like this are to resolve disputes,” Gibbons said. She also confirmed that in Office Hearing matters, the suspect “must do what is required by the hearing officer in an allotted amount of time, or if they fail to do so, the criminal case will continue through the legal system.” According to the police report, obtained and published by Los Cerritos Community Newspaper, Barrows said that during an argument with Gray outside Chambers, he got angry and called Gray an a**hole and after that Gray said, “you may think that, but your wife supports me”. At the June 11, 2012 Council meeting Barrows contradicted his statement in the police report and said “Gray made some extremely offensive comments about my wife and that is when I called him a**hole.” Greg Berg, Director of Community Services for the City of Cerritos had spoken at the Council meeting in public on the incident (at the insistence of Barrows), but attempted to distance himself from the matter on Monday afternoon in an interview with LCCN. “I am not going to comment about the matter any further, this does not involve the city of Cerritos,” he said. Cerritos Councilwoman Carol Chen, an ardent support of Barrows said the incident was “not her concern, and it shouldn’t be the concern of Los Cerritos Commu-

nity Newspaper.” City spokeswoman Annie Hylton said “the city has no official comment on the matter at this time.” Barrows has not returned repeated calls to Los Cerritos Community Newspaper regarding the incident. A copy of the hearing summons can be found at loscerritosnews.net.

Ennis said that Resolution 12-2349 ordering a proposed ballot measure to this effect shall be submitted to the voters of the city for consolidation in the statewide general elections on Nov. 6. The city attorney is also directed to prepare an impartial analysis regarding the former measure that will be presented to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors no later than Aug. 10, 2012 explained Deputy City Manager Justine Menzel, during a telephone interview. When asked how much the proposed rate hike was, she said, “that remains to be seen in next meeting.” In addition, the city of Artesia is supposed to make a request to the County Registrar of Voters to perform related services in connection with the consolidated election. On June 11, the council directed staff to commence the process of preparing adjustments to the City’s business license ordinance and to prepare to have those adjustments submitted to the voters at the Nov. 6 election. On July 2, an Ad Hoc Committee comprised of Council Member Miguel Canales and Mayor Pro Tem Sally Flowers met with City Manager Maria Dadian, Deputy City Manager Menzel, Administrative Services Manager Pradeep Elayath, and City Attorney Ennis to review a draft of the proposed ordinance which according to reports had undergone numerous changes.

tures. She said in this year’s budget the city carried over $50,000 from the previous budget for maintenance and cleaning of the existing sculptures. In addition the council stipulated that 10 percent of new contributions to the Trust Fund would be set aside for maintenance of the sculptures. Councilman Joseph Cho voted against the expenditure because he felt this particular art piece should be located outside the garden where it would act like a beacon for residents to the sculpture garden. In other business the council awarded a bid in the amount of $29,693.70 for the printing of programs for the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts to Diversified Printers in La Mirada. The council also approved an increase of $1 across the board in fees for the Ironwood Nine Golf Course. Recreation Services Superintendent Sherre Titus said a survey of area golf courses showed that Ironwood Nine fees were lower than other golf courses in the area. She said eight golf courses were used in comparison surveys. The Council approved a contract with Waukesha Pearce Industries for repairs, replacement and rehabilitation of the natural gas engines at four city water facilities. Vince Brar, Senior Assistant City Manager said the four existing engines were initially installed by Waukesha in 1970. Brar said the company warrants all parts and services and performs the service work. He said Valley Power System, Inc. had been the licensed Waukesha representative for California. The work to be provided includes repair, replacement and rehabilitation of the Waukesha engines. He said Waukesha is the only service provider in California authorized to do such work.

runs coming in the seventh inning. Later in the day, Norwalk slammed the Vista Thrillseekers 11-2, a team that has had vast experience in the state tournament. Norwalk resumed action this past Sunday morning with a 4-3 victory over the San Fernando Valley Xplosion in a game that went into the international tiebreaker. The loss sent the Xplosion to the losers bracket where later in the day, the two teams hooked up again with Norwalk winning in convincing fashion, 13-1. The game was put away in the first inning as Norwalk scored five runs, then added four more runs in the second inning before the game was called in the fourth inning due to the mercy rule. For the past several months, the firstyear team has had to deal with a lot of adversity, beginning with starting two weeks later than the other all-star teams. But once the team got under way, it was looking as if it had been around for years. Norwalk advanced to the championship game of the North Torrance Tournament June 24 before falling to Paramount 9-4. “Last year, I felt confident because it was our second-year 16s and we already had that one year of experience,” Hernandez said. “We had a great pitching staff last year. This year, just knowing we were going to the state tournament with basically two pitchers-the [Madrigal] sisters, we were really nervous.” Hernandez added that lot of people were not too supportive of the NGSA adding an 18-U All-Star team. Hernan-

dez said his team had to practice at other sites while the other NGSA All-Star teams practiced at its home base at Los Alisos Middle School. “We weren’t really welcomed at first,” he stated. “I guess that was the thing that got us going. We wanted to show everybody that we’re here and we have quality players.” The members of the Norwalk 18-U All-Stars are: Elizabeth Gutierrez, Briana Liera, Natalie Madrigal, Rene Madrigal, Melissa Martinez, Adriana Medrano, Denise Miranda, Brianna Ruiz, Daisy Sandoval, Marissa Taylor and Jessica Wallace. The coaches are Raul Banuelos, Rudy Madrigal and Derek Wallace and the team mom is Laura Taylor. Also last weekend, the Norwalk 8-U All-Star team won three of its four pool play games. After falling to Charter Oak 2-1 last Friday, the team rebounded for a 7-1 win against Corona last Saturday. This past Sunday, Norwalk edged Temecula 5-4 and knocked off Peninsula 9-1. The Norwalk 8-U All-Stars are: Ashley Benavides, Jolie Cabrera, Cerise Cervantes, Dalilah Garcia, Haylene Gonzalez, Alyvia Hernandez, Leilani Juan, Clarissa Marrujo, Layla Martinez, Gabriela Ortega, Estefania Perez and Malea Ritcharoen. The manager is Mike Ritcharoen and is coaches are Armando Benavides and Ralph Ortega. The team mom is Carol Hernandez.

They placed in the Top 10! They finished 7th out of 35 other high school welding fabrication teams from across the country. The welding fabrication competition consisted of two parts: a 100 question written test covering safety, and welding fabrication; and the hands-on portion. The following day, the fabrication team competed in their hands-on competition, a grueling schedule from 8am to 4pm. Since April, the team has spent approximately 30 hours designing a fire pit using Google Sketch-up, a free on-line design program. To prepare for Nationals, the team actually fabricated 3 fire pits as practice. Competitors Jordan, Ryan and Dakota participated in the orientation and passed the written exams for their specific competition.

Artesia Survey Shows Residents Value City Services, Want More Local Control Over Funds

ccording to a recent community survey, residents of Artesia want to protect and maintain their local community services, placing a high degree of importance on protecting public safety services and street maintenance. Residents also indicated support for local revenue generation that would serve as a protected, reliable source of revenue for local needs that cannot be taken by the State. The survey was conducted March 14 through March 26 by opinion research firm Godbe Research with 183 residents across the community. The City commissioned the survey to evaluate the Artesia community’s views related to the City’s fiscal challenges, general City services, and attitudes toward potential local funding measures. Maintaining crime, drugs and gang prevention programs was the top priority at 73 percent, as was maintaining 9-1-1 police response times (72 percent) and maintaining neighborhood police patrols (69 percent). Fixing potholes and maintaining and repairing neighborhood streets and roads both scored 70 percent. 69 percent of Artesia residents also valued and want-

ed to maintain the City’s efforts to remove blight by preventing dumping and discarding of waste, debris, furnishings and appliances on public streets. “With Artesia facing so many difficult budget decisions due to State takeaways and declined revenue, it was important to have community feedback on what our service priorities must be,” stated City Manager Maria Dadian. “It is clear from the survey that we must find ways to enhance local control over revenue sources in order to maintain current levels of public safety and police services, including neighborhood patrols, and crime and gang prevention programs.” The City Council received the results of the community survey at the City Council meeting on Monday, May 14. Artesia participates in America in Bloom This year, Artesia is participating in the America in Bloom program, which is a national program that judges cities based on their floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, heritage preservation, and the overall impression left on the judges.

All Insurances/Medical • Se Habla Espanol • All Major Credit Cards

The judges were here on the weekend of July 5th. Evelyn Alemanni, one of the America in Bloom judges, said she was amazed by the amount of work Artesia has done toward greening its community, and found especially moving the partnerships between the City, local volunteer organizations like Artesia in Action, and with the school district. The judges were also very impressed by the nature gardens at Niemes Elementary. Participation in the America in Bloom program benefits the community because it gives Artesia a chance to document everything that it has done over the last few years to make a more verdant city. In return, America in Bloom judges provide a report to the community, with suggestions on how it can improve. “We’re a built up urban community,” said Mayor John P. Lyon, “but we’ve done a lot that we can be proud of and showcase. I think we’re ready for this program.” The City last participated in 2008, and since then the community has developed enough “green” projects, and has come to understand just what needs to be done in order to do well in the America in Bloom

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 are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be re¬sponsible 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 contact¬ing 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.
