Hawaiian Gardens Plans “Stalemated” for New Veterans and Safety Services Memorials By Larry Caballero A Request by Hawaiian Gardens City Staff to approve conceptual plans for a new Veterans Memorial Plaza located at the Civic Center and a new Public Safety Services Memorial Plaza located at the Public Library was tabled Aug. 9 when Councilmembers disagreed on whether the projects should be approved as one item or separate items. Councilmember Michi Oyama Canada, the deciding vote, was unable to attend the Council meeting. When it became apparent that there was no consensus among the four members, Councilmember Farfan expressed disappointment that the completion of the projects had been “stalemated.” Three concepts were offered for the [See MEMORIAL page 11]

The Cerritos City Council, at its Aug. 11 meeting, reluctantly voted to pay $9,339,030 to the State in order to maintain the city’s Redevelopment Agency. Under AB 27 the payment would be paid in two equal installments due on Jan. 15 and May 15, 2012. However the California Supreme Court, in a case brought on by the California Redevelopment Association and the League of California Cities, ordered a stay on the legislation until the court decides in January whether the legislature violated the state constitution in eliminating the agencies.

In a report to the Norwalk City Council on Tuesday night, Planning and Community Development Director Kurt Anderson told the city council that the recently adopted city budget would have to be revised and updated due to newly projected federal funding shortfalls. Anderson said that $299,720 in previously projected expenditures would have

square mile service area.Cerritos now accounts for more than 50% of the cases countywide. “Mosquitoes breed more rapidly in warm weather,” says Public Information Officer Crystal Brown. “With a higher abundance of mosquitoes comes a higher risk of West Nile virus transmission.” Officials also pointed out that this week’s case totals were the first confirmed cases of West Nile Virus in Los Angeles City, La Habra Heights, Hacienda Heights, Los Feliz, South El Monte, Sunland, and West Hills for 2011. This brings the District’s total to 45 WNV positive dead birds, 174 WNV positive mosquito samples, and four sentinel chickens with antibodies so far this year. Getting the Word Out “We’re using every available medium of communication to get the word out about the seriousness of this public health threat,” said Director of Community Affairs Truc Dever. “We are asking residents to take the necessary precautions to prevent mosquito bites and contribute to the control effort by eliminating or reporting all backyard mosquito breeding sources. Officials also warned that residents throughout Cerritos, Norwalk, Lakewood and Hawaiian Gardens should take note of the significant increase in West Nile virus activity this week and make sure to follow the simple steps to prevent mosquito bites. Residents are reminded if they see a dead bird on your property to immediately call the Vector Control offices in Santa Fe Springs at (877) WNV-BIRD.

Mendoza, Knabe Supporters Clash Over County Redistricting Plan Mendoza calls for more Latino Districts. By Randy Economy Hundreds of local community leaders, residents, and organizations swarmed into the Kenneth Hahn Board of Supervisors Hearing Room last week and demanded that the board maintain the current district boundaries for the next 10 years and that only “slight” modifications are implemented. The Board of Supervisors are in the process of selecting between one of two proposed redistricting plans and both couldn’t be more different. One plan, known as “S1” would shift as many as 3 million voters into different Supervisorial districts and would, supporters claim, create two new Latino majority voting districts. The other proposed plan, known as “A2,” would unite some current communities of interest and would have a much less dramatic impact on the total number of voters being shifted into a new district. Latino activists, including Assemblyman Tony Mendoza, the Chairman of the California State Assembly Latino Caucus spoke out against keeping the status quo and in support of Plan S2. Mendoza, who represents the Cerritos, Artesia and Norwalk area in the State Assembly took on Supervisor Knabe during the packed
public hearing last week and claimed that a member of one of the Supervisors staff told him directly that “there’s nothing that currently prevents a Latino from running for, and being elected as supervisor of any of the five county supervisor seats.” Then Mendoza said that “I spent 10 years on the Artesia City Council and five years in the State Assembly and I know what the political realities are. Even a well-known Latino can’t win against Supervisor Knabe when the main goal (of redistricting) is to re-elect Supervisor Knabe by approving a district that is dominated by coastal communities that don’t share anything in common with the San Gabriel Valley cities.” “No Latino can win there against an entrenched incumbent, and the sad part is, that in his heart the Supervisor (Knabe) knows this,” Mendoza testified. The third term Assemblyman, who is not eligible to run for a fourth two year slot in the State Assembly in 2012 due to voter mandated term limits, asked “when is politics as usual enough?” Knabe’s motion for the “A2 Plan” would unite Silverlake into the First District; unite unincorporated Florence/ Firestone into the Second District; unite Playa del Rey into the Fourth District, and unite Unincorporated West Whittier and the City of Santa Fe Springs in to the Fourth District. Knabe stated publicly that “during the time I have had the privilege of serving the residents of the County of Los Angeles; we have grown to be one of the most racially diverse counties in the nation. I am proud to represent a district that has a majority Latino population, as well as Asian Americans, Whites, Afri[See PLAN page 9]

“This diverse Orange County town is 10 miles from the beach and 20 miles from downtown Los Angeles, where many residents work. They can relax once they get home: La Palma has an exceedingly low crime rate. Another family-friendly amenity: all three of the town’s elementary schools offer free after-school fitness programs.” Upon hearing the news, Mayor Ralph Rodriguez said, “It is with great pride that we heard the news that La Palma has once again been recognized as one of the best small cities in the United States. Many of the qualities that MONEY magazine evaluates are core to our way of life -- a safe community, excellent schools, quality housing, a vibrant and diverse population, and a fiscally sound City. “This
recognition serves to reinforce what the residents and staff have known for a very long time: La Palma is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. I want to thank the residents, volunteers, and hard-working professional staff that make La Palma special each and every day,” he stated. La Palma is a 1.9 square mile general law city in northwest Orange County, consisting of 15,568 residents and 482 commercial and industrial businesses. The City was incorporated in 1955 under the name of Dairyland and has 65 full-time and 35 part-time employees.

CERRITOS SHERIFF’S STATION
Weekly crime summary August 8-14, 2011
Part I felony investigations rose from sixteen to twenty-two last week. Increases were noted in residential and vehicle burglaries. Robberies and commercial burglaries remained the same, and vehicle thefts declined. Calls for service were lower again at 259 after 267 were handled by patrol personnel the previous week. The current 2011 weekly average in calls for service is 272. There was one robbery reported. A female victim was robbed at gunpoint by lone suspect on Friday August 12 at 8:25 p.m. while in a lot in the 11800 block of Del Amo Boulevard. Her purse, rings, watch, and shoes were taken. Residential burglaries increased from one to seven last week. Three doors were pried, and two entries were made via unlocked windows. Handguns and ceramic figures were taken, and losses could not be initially determined in the other cases. The 2011 weekly average in residential burglaries remains at 3.7. Alarm systems and dogs are the burglar’s worse enemies. Both detect presence, and both alert others to that presence. It is an excellent idea to have at least one or the other! There were three commercial burglaries and one “other structure” burglary investigated. The same total as
Artesia Initiates Property Cleanup Program This Weekend Artesia in Action will take its first project of a property clean up at 11825 168th Street this Saturday, August 20, from 8 a.m. to noon. The property, a warehouse, is filled with junk, trash, trees, and other debris that badly needs to be cleaned up. Leading the project is New Life Community Church. Artesia in Action is a conglomerate of churches that aims to bring restoration and hope to the community by building partnerships between churches, businesses, residents, and city government. It owes part of its inspiration from a similar organization in Comption, called The Compton Initiative. In 2005, a church in Paramount had a
the week before. Three closed businesses were involved where glass doors were shattered and a front door was pried. Computer towers and monitors, along with cash were taken. The fourth case involved a fitness center locker where a cell phone stolen. The 2011 weekly average in commercial/“other structure” burglaries is 3.3. Vehicle burglaries increased from five to seven last week. In an unusual occurrence, only three were from highvolume commercial parking lots. Four SUVs were targeted. Property stolen included third-row seats (from SUVs), cameras, a stroller, purses, wallets, and a charger. The 2011 weekly average in vehicle burglaries remained at 6.2. Fitness center lots are frequent targets of thieves because they know that patrons will leave valuables such as those taken last week, inside the passenger compartments of vehicles instead of using lockers inside. We have two fitness centers in Cerritos and they are no exception. Take these items with you, leave them at home if possible, (with the exception of ID), or at the very least secure them in the trunk of the vehicle Vehicle thefts were down again from three to one last week. An SUV was stolen from high-volume commercial parking lot. The 2011 weekly average in vehicle thefts is 2.9. SUVs are commonly taken for parts such as DVD units, wheels, and third row seats. If you own one, make sure that your investment is protected by tracking devices such as GPS units, and add a steering wheel lock just for an added measure of security. good idea to help neighboring Compton. While that church initiated the program, the people of Compton took ownership of it. The mayor, city council, local businesses, civic and religious organizations all partnered to form one united force for change in Compton. This is the goal for Artesia in Action, for citizens to take ownership of their city and care for it. Mayor Victor Manalo said, “I can’t stress enough how much the City appreciates volunteer groups like Artesia in Action. More then ever, volunteer efforts from our citizens are showing us that they are the true face behind what makes a city a community.” Artesia in Action isn’t a religious organization, it is a citizens volunteer group. As such, all citizens are invited to participate in making Artesia a better, and cleaner, place. To sign up for future clean-ups with Artesia in Action, visit www.nl-cc.org/CommunityImpact.
Cerritos Residents Pack Town Hall Meeting By Larry Caballero
Cerritos Sheriff’s Captain Joe Gonzales was pleased at the huge turnout Aug. 17 in the Senior Center at Pat Nixon Park for a Neighborhood Watch Town Hall meeting where residents would hear a recap of crime in Cerritos. Gonzales also promised residents that they would have the opportunity to speak to law enforcement and Community and Safety Services personnel about any safety concerns they may have. There was much data that the residents could be proud of, especially in the Violent Crimes section, that showed a drop of -50.4% over a 5 year period in the YTD Crime Rate 2011/2010 and a -27.7% one-year change in YTD Crime Rate 2011/2010.

Then Gonzales began to address the 80-pound gorilla in the room—Burglary that showed a 45.0% increase over five years and a one-year change of 32.6%. Residents were advised to call the Sheriff’s Station at any time—day or night—to report a possible crime. “We are on duty 24-7, seven days a week and on holidays,” said Gonzales, “in order to protect you and your property.” He reminded residents that they “are the eyes and ears of the community.” Deputy Jeff Deedrick has a mother who lives in Cerritos, and of course, he is even more motivated to keep Cerritos safe. Yet it isn’t always easy since “Cerritos is like a sweet fruit tree that is ripe for picking” by criminals who enter Cerritos from other areas. Deedrick said that even if Cerritos has the fastest response time in Los Angeles County, they could do even better with the residents’ help. “Neighbors need to know their neighbors,” said Deedrick, “and you

need to be vested in your community.” He informed residents that a criminal does not usually enter a home if he thinks someone is inside. He was shocked to learn that his mother would not answer the door if a stranger knocked, and she would not say anything, hoping the stranger would just go away. He told her that she had been lucky no one had broken down her door to enter, thinking that no one was at home. “You should always say something,” said Deedrick, “such as to come back later or that you are busy and cannot open the door.” Gonzales informed residents that the highest number of calls come to the Sheriff’s Station between 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm, June through September.

City Manager Art Gallucci said $3 million will be borrowed from the Redevelopment Agency and $6 million, with no pay back from Housing Funds “We have been advised not to make a payment until this has been resolved by the court. Councilmember Mark Pulido asked what the sunset dates were for the city’s Redevelopment Agency? Gallucci said Los Coyotes District will expire in 2014 plus 10 but with no new development and the Redevelopment Agency in 2028. In other business the council approved turf improvement at the Sports Complex for approximately 25,000 sq, ft. of GN-1 Hybird Bermuda to repair the Sports Complex sport fields.

On June 23 of this year the council reviewed the maps first draft that aligned the city with Orange County cities. The council rejected the maps and asserted Cerritos should remain with its neighboring Los Angeles County cities, which it historically has had close regional ties through common goals, projects and association. Councilmembers generally approved the preliminary final maps, citing the opinion while they were not perfect Cerritos was placed in districts with cities it historically has had a working relationship with. The new preliminary final maps are listed below: • Assembly: Cerritos, Artesia, Bellflower, Bell Gardens, Commerce, Downey, Montebello and Pico Rivera. • Senate: Cerritos, Artesia, Bellflower, Commerce, Downey Hawaiian Gardens, La Habra Heights, La Mirada, Montebello, Norwalk, Pico Rivera, Santa Fe Springs and Whittier and Buena Park in Orange County. • Congressional: Cerritos, Artesia, Hawaiian Gardens, Lakewood, La Mirada, Montebello, Norwalk, Pico Rivera, Santa Fe Springs, South El Monte, Whittier and La Palma in Orange County.

reducing the Cinco de Mayo special event budget to $1,700 down from $2,500. Mayor Victor Manalo said the Commission would like to reduce the budget to $1,200 and have the council members contribute $100 each from their expense accounts to make up the $500 needed to reach $1,700. He said he was not in favor of making the cut but if the Commission wanted to discuss a cross the board cut to save money the council would be open for discussion.

Chubby Checker Twisted and Terrific at Cerritos By Glen Creason Back in the day my little sister was quite the socialite when my family moved to Orange County for several strange years. As a third grader she was a stylish trendsetter with her RCA Victor portable record player and one single, sensational record that sped on the turntable at 45 r.p.m.s. That same disc became the center of action at THE social event of the year “a Twist Party.” Every kid in her class attended and gyrated to a sweaty fare thee well at Chubby Checker’s hit record of 1960. When parents came to collect the young hipsters they might have been ordered to get down to Wallach’s Music City and put down the $1 to buy a copy. Since that day, Chubby Checker’s song has been played at least a trillion times on top-40 radio and in homes across the globe. Recently, a poll listed the humble tune as the favorite pop single of alltime. But that was 1960 and even with my math skills that makes it 51 years old and the singer something beyond those years. The question was “can Chubby still twist?” Surprise number one was seeing the old twister looking so healthy and fit, even wearing skinny jeans believe it or not. Second surprise is that he can still sing, moreover, he can still rock pretty darn good. The show was so stimulating that many of the Boomers present felt compelled to get up on the stage and you guessed it, twist. Chubby Checker
is a seasoned pro and he did what has always made him an enduring and endearing figure in pop: he sang one good song after another without as much as a heartbeat in between. They came in breathless succession: “Good Lovin’,” “Little Bitty Pretty One,” “Pony Time,” “Limbo Rock,” and “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” all evergreens from pop history along with nice imitations of other masters like Fats Domino (“I’m Walking and Blueberry Hill) and even Elvis (“Stuck on You”). Yet the crowd came to twist and Chubby sang all of those songs including “Twisting U.S.A., “Let’s Twist Again,” “Twist It Up” and the very grand finale of “the Twist” that saw many come dangerously close to a chiropractic visit in the near future. This was a good natured and energetic show with “the Wildcats” accompanying with strong rhythm and blues backing, even with a couple of guitarists that probably never saw a turntable, let alone the one with the .45 spindle. Also there was a generous amount of audience participation including one woman of the Boomer vintage whose “hucklebuck” brought the house down. The audience loved it and gave the man two standing O’s at the conclusion. The afternoon concert was opened by comedian Scott Wood who was very funny for just the right amount of time, working clean and clever throughout. Danny and the Junior performed some pretty frisky Doo Wop as the curtain raising act including some real classics from the Rock and Roll vault like “Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay,” “Pony Express,” and the classic “At the Hop” that made some memories stir in many a chair at the Center.

Doo Wop band THE OLYMPICS contributed to the Hully Gully line-dance craze that Americans fell in love with in the late ’50s and early ’60s.

1st CEB Car Wash Raises Over $3,200
The Los Cerritos Shopping Center hosted the Friends of the USMC's 1st Combat Engineer Battalion from Camp Pendleton annual car wash Aug. 13. Through the generosity of the public and people who donated to this event by bringing their cars and motor motorcycles to be washed by the Marines or just donated money, the fundraiser collected nearly $3,200, which the Marines will use to offset some of the costs of their annual Marines Corps Birthday Ball on Nov 10. Last year, the Marines were unable to hold their annual Ball due to their deployment to Afghanistan. The Friends of the 1st CEB would also like to thank the Marines who came from Camp Pendleton who washed the vehicles, the members of the Whitney High School Key Club who helped with the signs and also helped in washing the vehicles, the present and past members of various agencies including the City of Cerritos, Los Cerritos Community News, the Los Cerritos Shopping Center, Chick-Fil-A, Inc. (who provided lunch), and Allen Tire for their assistance. Shown in the picture are the Marines, Key Club members, and Friends of the 1st CEB.

Knabe, who is also a former Cerritos City Councilman, Mayor and Planning Commissioner said that A-2 would “minimize” disruptions and “preserves the ability of cohesive minority groups to elect candidates of their choice, but does not use race as a predominate factor in adjusting the boundaries.” Norwalk Mayor Mike Mendez testified that he supports the A-2 plan and said that “Supervisor Knabe has been a champion for everyone in this region, and that includes Latinos.” Mendez even questioned the “political motives “of those who support “carving up Los Angeles County” during the current economic challenges throughout the county and nation.

Artesia, Cerritos low in numbers but high in playoff aspirations By Loren Kopff ARTESIA PIONEERS 0-10 overall record last season, 0-6 in the Suburban League, last place 16-36 overall last five seasons Head coach: Joe Veach (second full season, 1-16) Lost 10 seniors out of 30 from 2010 opening day roster 2011 schedule Sept. 2 @ Huntington Park (3-7 last season) Sept. 9 Whittier (0-10) Sept. 16 @ Long Beach Wilson (6-5) Sept. 23 Gahr (5-5) Sept. 30 @ Norwalk (7-5) Oct. 7 @ La Mirada (7-4) Oct. 14 BYE Oct. 21 Bellflower (5-6) Oct. 28 Cerritos (3-7) Nov. 4 @ John Glenn (2-8) Nov. 11 Mayfair (8-5) Normally, coaches and players would want to forget about a winless season. But not Artesia head coach Joe Veach. Despite a Suburban League team going 0-10 for the fourth time since 2003, Veach still found one good thing from a very young squad that only had 30 players on the opening day roster. “I totally want to remember the 0-10 record and I have it painted all over our weight room walls,” Veach said. “I tell

the kids all the time, if you want to get that off the walls, win a game. We [also] have it inside our racks in the weight room. We talk about it before practice and after practice of what happened last year and how we don’t want anything like that to happen again.” The Pioneers will again field a small team but the experience of the sophomores and juniors from last season should help in putting together some victories. Artesia hasn’t made the playoffs since 2008 and has only three winning seasons since 2004, all resulting in trips to the postseason. “Going into this year, I feel a lot better than I did going into last year,” Veach said. “We’re not going to have the talent that they have at a lot of the schools in the area. But we have 28-32 guys who I think are totally committed to play and work their butt off and to get better. That’s what we’re out here for.” OFFENSE Artesia scored just 117 points in 2010 and scored no more than one touchdown in five of its first six games. In fact, it was tough to get the Pioneers going as they scored seven first half points in the first seven games of the season. When the offense finally got going, junior quarterback Francisco Galan was getting a feel for what varsity high school football is all about. Of the six touchdowns Galan threw, four came in the eighth and ninth games combined. He will be the team’s number one signal caller with junior Jeremy Gaskin his backup. Gaskin threw two touchdown passes in the early part of the season. “We really put him behind the eightball,” Veach said. “There wasn’t a whole lot of success that he could have had. But I think last year right around the Cerritos game (Oct. 22), we saw a turnaround in him where the light went off in him. We saw him get better from that point on every single week. I expect him to take a huge leap forward.” Protecting Galan and Gaskin on the line will be sophomore left tackle Lene Lauti, senior left guard Mose Anipale, sophomore center Fidel Palomo or junior Daniel Sanchez, senior right guard Orse Monroe and senior right tackle Adrian Mendoza. Only Mendoza is a returning lineman. The ground game will be led by senior James Leblue, junior Brian Stewart and sophomore Jose Soto. Stewart moves from the left tackle spot he occupied last season. The strength of the offense will be in the receiving department where the Pioneers return seniors Jerry Bumpas and Darius Pyles and junior Jason Latchison. Joining the crew is senior Cesar Soto. “We’re set pretty good out there,” Veach said. “Darius is still unpolished but he has made huge strides from last year.

He catches the ball a hundred times better that he caught the ball last year. Jerry is somebody who doesn’t have a lot of top end speed but runs his smart routes well and catches the ball and has decent size.” DEFENSE As bad as the offense was, the defense was even worse. The Pioneers allowed 505 points with every opponent scoring at least 30 points. The Pioneers found themselves trailing by at least two touchdowns in the first quarter in the first seven games. The line will be occupied by pretty much the same players as on the offensive line as well as Pyles. Seniors David Murphy, Darrell Potts and Darren Potts (cornerback), sophomore Anthony Roldan, Cesar Soto (free safety) and Jose Soto will be in the secondary while Bumpas, Gaskin, Latchison, Leblue, Marquez and Stewart will be the key linebackers. SCHEDULE This season’s non-Suburban League slate is a much more favorable one than what was staring Artesia in the eyes the past two seasons. Gone are the likes of Edison, Millikan, Villa Park and Westminster. The Pioneers scored a total of 40 points against those teams in six games over the past two years. Veach said that the Huntington Park match-up is more comparable because the two schools are similar in population and size. He added that it will be a ‘good game for us in zero week’. Something will give when the Pioneers open their home schedule against the Cardinals. It will be the first meeting with Whittier since 2006, a 19-13 Artesia victory. Artesia is 5-7 against Gahr in the last 12 meetings and after that, two road games to open up league action await the Pioneers. In the past six games, Artesia is 3-3 against Norwalk at Excelsior Stadium. Bellflower is the last league opponent the Pioneers have yet to face on homecoming night in the past 13 years. Artesia’s best success in league the past 13 seasons has come against John Glenn as it has won 10 games against the Eagles since 1998. “Making those three preseason games, I wanted two that I knew we could play with, compete and have some success with,” Veach said. “And then I wanted to put one in there that was going to be a tough game. But I didn’t want a Mission Viejo or an Edison.” CERRITOS DONS 3-7 overall last season, 2-4 in the Suburban League, tied for fourth place 8-42 overall last five seasons Head coach: Chad Reed (third season, 4-16) Lost 12 seniors out of 51 from 2010 opening day roster 2011 schedule

Continued from page 1 Veterans Memorial, and one had been approved by the Veterans Memorial Committee that provided high visibility from Pioneer Street, proximity to the Civic Center main entrance and the ability to accommodate larger groups for ceremonies and events. The five-wedge star pattern Memorial would encompass 4500 square feet, about16 feet in diameter and 42 inches in height with accent lighting and an Inspirational Wall. Councilmember Reynaldo Rodriguez was anxious to have the project completed as soon as possible. “I would like to get this started,” said Rodriguez, after noting that the project has been in the planning stages for over a year. Yet Rodriguez did not support only one bid on the project. “We could get a
better deal with separate contracts,” said Rodriguez. Councilmember Barry Bruce agreed. “There are two separate projects for two separate reasons.” Farfan wasn’t so sure and supported one bid because “from a cost perspective, we may be over budget on the project.” Bruce argued that it was “absurd” to work on two projects at the same time. “That was a mistake on Staff’s part,” said Bruce, and he accused staff of using poor judgment. City Engineer Ismile Noorbaksh supported only one bid because otherwise “it’s going to cause problems. It makes good sense,” said Noorbaksh, to stay with one bid. Bruce said, “It was crazy not to separate them,” and said that Mayor Mike Gomez’s concern is that the Public Safety Services Memorial won’t get built if it wasn’t attached to the Veterans Memorial Project. Bruce accused Gomez of wanting to “piggy back” on the Veterans Memorial
COMMUNITY NEWS GROUP • AUGUST 19, 2011
Project and attempting a “stalling procedure.” Gomez countered that he wanted them both to go forward as soon as possible. While Bruce also favored the projects as well as Farfan and Rodriguez, there was no consensus on the bidding process. The first motion of only one bid failed by a 2-2 vote, and the second motion for separate bids failed by a 2-2 vote. So the Request will be discussed again at the Aug. 23 meeting when Councilmember Canada will be present to break the tie. Funding for the Veterans Memorial was not approved until Jun. 28. Estimated cost for the VA Memorial is about $310,000 and about $168,000 for the PSS Memorial. The final costs will be determined after the actual bidding process is completed. Under the 2011-2012 budget, the City Council has appropriated funds in the amount of $500,000 for the two projects.

Even more important is the countdown underneath that-how many days until Cerritos faces John Glenn. That’s all everyone associated with Dons football has been talking about as it was
Glenn which knocked Cerritos out of the playoff picture in the last week of the 2010 season. Despite a 3-7 record, Cerritos accomplished a lot with a young team and broke through several barriers that it hopes will continue this season. “I think we were on track for year two,” Reed said. “The first year I was just happy to be here. In the second year, we played in some close games and figured out how to win and hopefully in the third year, we’ll progress. I thought last year was a good stepping stone.” Cerritos had just over 50 players on its varsity squad last season, had its best record since 2006 and had its highest league placing since 2003. But now, the Dons took a huge hit and will field a much smaller squad due to the defections of several key players that helped Cerritos turn the page. Reed says he anticipates around 33 players on the varsity

squad and the program will not field a junior varsity team. “On the positive side, which was better than this year, was the number of kids who were playing football,” Reed said. “We had all three levels and had 55 on varsity. Now, are numbers are horrible this year which I don’t understand. But that was a positive last year; a lot of kids were playing. “The attention to detail still hadn’t come around 100 percent,” he added. “Last year we figured out the kind of physical commitment of football-showing up every day, being on time, putting in the work at practice, how to practice. I’ve emphasized that with the kids this year.” OFFENSE Starting senior quarterback Austin Young is not back. So, taking his spot will be his backup, senior Bo Nelson with junior Nicholas Lee as the second stringer. Lee was primarily a tight end last season. Nelson should have several experienced targets to throw to as seniors Markel Hawkins, Montel Hawkins and Kyle Williams are the key wide receivers. Add Lee and senior Jason Tompkins to that list and Reed expects to the spread the ball out more this season. “We are going to throw the ball and he’s going to be a big focal part of our offense,” Reed said of Nelson. “If he lives up to his potential, I believe he can be an all-league quarterback.” The ground game suffers a bit because of several players not returning but seniors Branden Wilson and Eric Pranadjaja figure to get the bulk of the carries. If he comes back from an injury towards the end of the season, add junior Elijah Leonard to that mix. The offensive line will have one returning starter with senior Paul Luevano, who moves from right
guard to right tackle. Joining him will be senior left tackle Victor Mijares, sophomore left guard Paul Soto, junior center Nicholas Minyon and junior right guard Patrick Olida. DEFENSE Cerritos will be small on this side of the ball this season with a relatively new line up front. Along with senior Joseph Wu, the same players who will be on the offensive line will also be defensive linemen. The rest of the defense figures to be more solid with the brothers Hawkins, Tompkins and Williams in the secondary while Lee, Luevano, Pranadjaja and junior Jose Mayarol as the top linebackers. SCHEDULE Reed says the Dons play better on the road and in order to start the season strong, the team will need to have some success early on as the first three games are on the road against non-playoff teams who did not have a winning record. The bye week will come at a good time because the league opener is against Glenn. As extra incentive, the Dons are 5-1 against Glenn at Rants Stadium since 1998, the best home mark against any league foe during that span. The Dons homecoming game is against El Monte, marking the first time since 2006 that a non-league opponent has faced Cerritos on homecoming. The tough part of the schedule comes in the final four games. Since 1998, Cerritos has had better success against Artesia, Glenn and Norwalk with a combined 21 victories than Bellflower, La Mirada and Mayfair (five combined wins). Cerritos has not defeated La Mirada on the road since 2001. “If we perform well in the preseason like we should and if we play well in the Suburban League, we should be 6-4,” Reed said. “

CITY OF CERRITOS ORDINANCE NO. 962
AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CERRITOS, CALIFORNIA, TO ELECT AND IMPLEMENT PARTICIPATION BY THE CITY OF CERRITOS AND THE CERRITOS REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY IN THE VOLUNTARY ALTERNATIVE REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM PURSUANT TO PART 1.9 OF DIVISION 24 OF THE CALIFORNIA HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE IN ORDER TO PERMIT THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE AND OPERATION OF THE CERRITOS REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY
WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Cerritos (City) approved and adopted the Redevelopment Plans for the Los Cerritos and Los Coyotes Redevelopment Projects (collectively, Redevelopment Plan) covering certain properties within the City (the Project Area); and WHEREAS, the Cerritos Redevelopment Agency (Agency) is engaged in activities to execute and implement the Redevelopment Plan pursuant to the provisions of the California Community Redevelopment Law (Health and Safety Code § 33000, et seq.) (CRL); and WHEREAS, since adoption of the Redevelopment Plan, the Agency has undertaken redevelopment projects in the Project Area to eliminate blight, to improve public facilities and infrastructure, to renovate and construct affordable housing, and to enter into partnerships with private industries to create jobs and expand the local economy; and WHEREAS, the Agency intends to continue to implement a variety of redevelopment projects and programs to continue to eliminate and prevent blight, stimulate and expand the Project Area’s economic growth, create and develop local job opportunities and alleviate deficiencies in public infrastructure; and WHEREAS, as part of the 2011-12 State budget bill, the California Legislature has recently enacted, and the Governor has signed, companion bills AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27, requiring that each redevelopment agency be dissolved unless the community that created it enacts an ordinance committing it to making certain payments; and WHEREAS, specifically, AB 1X 26 prohibits agencies from taking numerous actions, effective immediately and purportedly retroactively, and additionally provides that agencies are deemed to be dissolved as of October 1, 2011; and WHEREAS, AB 1X 27 provides that a community may participate in an "Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program", in order to enable a redevelopment agency within that community to remain in existence and carry out the provisions of the CRL, by enacting an ordinance agreeing to comply with Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the California Health and Safety Code; and WHEREAS, the Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program requires that the community agree by ordinance to remit specified annual amounts to the county auditor-controller; and WHEREAS, under the threat of dissolution pursuant to AB 1X 26, and upon the contingencies and reservations set forth herein, the City shall make the Fiscal Year 2011-2012 community remittance of $9,339,030, as well as the subsequent annual community remittances as set forth in the CRL; and WHEREAS, the City reserves the right to appeal the California Director of Finance’s determination of the Fiscal Year 2011-12 community remittance, as provided in California Health and Safety Code Section 34194; and WHEREAS, City understands that an action challenging the constitutionality of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 has been filed on behalf of cities, counties and redevelopment agencies and believes that additional actions may be filed; and WHEREAS, while the City currently intends to make these community remittances, they shall be made under protest and without prejudice to the City’s right to recover such amounts and interest thereon, to the extent there is a final determination that AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 are unconstitutional; and WHEREAS, the City reserves the right, regardless of any community remittance made pursuant to this Ordinance, to challenge the legality of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27; and WHEREAS, to the extent a court of competent jurisdiction enjoins, restrains, or grants a stay on the effectiveness of the Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program’s payment obligation of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27, the City shall not be obligated to make any community remittance for the duration of such injunction, restraint, or stay; and WHEREAS, all other legal pre-requisites to the adoption of this Ordinance have occurred. NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CERRITOS, CALIFORNIA, DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Recitals. The Recitals set forth above are true and correct and incorporated herein by reference. Section 2. Participation in the Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program. In accordance with Health and Safety Code Section 34193, and based on the Recitals set forth above, the City Council hereby determines that the City shall comply with the provisions of Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the California Health and Safety Code, as enacted by AB 1X 27. Section 3. Payment Under Protest. Except as set forth in Section 4, below, the City Council hereby determines that the City shall make the community remittances set forth in California Health and Safety Code section 34194 et seq. Section 4. Effect of Stay or Determination of Invalidity. City shall not make any community remittance in the event a court of competent jurisdiction either grants a stay on the enforcement of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 or determines that AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 are unconstitutional and therefore invalid, and all appeals therefrom are exhausted or unsuccessful, or time for filing an appeal therefrom has lapsed. Any community remittance shall be made under protest and without prejudice to the City’s right to challenge the legality of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 or to recover such amount and interest thereon in the event that there is a final determination that AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 are unconstitutional. If there is a final determination that AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 are invalid, this Ordinance shall be deemed to be null and void and of no further force or effect. Section 5. Implementation. The City Council hereby authorizes and directs the City Manager to take any action and execute any documents necessary to implement this Ordinance, including but not limited to notifying the Los Angeles County Auditor-Controller, the Controller of the State of California, and the California Department of Finance of the adoption of this Ordinance and the City’s agreement to comply with the provisions of Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the Health and Safety Code, as set forth in AB 1X 27. Section 6. Additional Understandings and Intent. It is the understanding and intent of the City Council that, once the Agency is again authorized to enter into agreements under the CRL, the City will enter into an agreement with the Agency as authorized pursuant to Section 34194.2, whereby the Agency will transfer annual portions of its tax increment to the City in amounts not to exceed the annual community remittance payments to enable the City, directly or indirectly, to make the annual remittance payments. Section 7. CEQA. The City Council finds, under Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, Section 15378(b)(4), that this Ordinance is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in that it is not a "project", but instead consists of the creation and continuation of a governmental funding mechanism for potential future projects and programs, and does not commit funds to any specific project or program.

Section 11. Findings. The adoption of this Urgency Ordinance is necessary for the immediate protection of the public peace, health and safety. In accordance with California Government Code Section 36937 and in order to protect the public peace, health and safety, the City Council of the City of Cerritos finds and determines as follows: (a) AB 1X 26 prohibits agencies from taking numerous actions, until the City Council adopts an ordinance agreeing to comply with Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the California Health and Safety Code, including but not limited to incurring any new monetary or legal obligations or expanding any existing monetary or legal obligations, entering into agreements with any person for any purpose or amending or modifying any existing agreements and taking any action with respect to a redevelopment plan; (b) Prior to the enactment of an ordinance agreeing to comply with Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the California Health and Safety Code, the Agency will be unable to continue efforts to eliminate and prevent blight (including remediation of buildings and structures which are unhealthy or unsafe to occupy or properties with hazardous waste), stimulate and expand the Project Area’s economic growth, create and develop local job opportunities and alleviate deficiencies in public infrastructure; (c) Blighting conditions in the Project Area constitute substantial threats to public peace, health and safety, and are so prevalent they cannot be eliminated without Agency action, including but not limited to the use of Agency funds and authorization of redevelopment projects and programs; (d) During the current economic crisis, the Agency must have the ability to act and continue the efforts set forth in (b) above. The Agency must have all tools available in order to eliminate and prevent blighting conditions within the Project Area and continue with the implementation of the Agency’s economic development programs, which includes, but is not limited to, development of affordable housing, infrastructure and capital improvement projects; (e) The Agency is actively engaged in efforts to develop affordable housing units, to provide assistance for property improvements and to provide safe and affordable housing. Included among the efforts in which the Agency is actively engaged is the financing of the Cuesta Villas Housing Project, for which the Agency has committed substantial amounts of its Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund and is in the process of implementing, and the Agency must have the ability immediately to continue to implement this senior citizen affordable housing project. ADOPTION OF THIS URGENCY ORDINANCE WILL PERMIT THE AGENCY TO CONTINUE THESE EFFORTS IMMEDIATELY. Section 12. Effective Date. The City Council hereby declares, on the basis of the findings set forth above, that an emergency exists and that this Ordinance is necessary to preserve the public peace, health and safety. Accordingly, this Ordinance is adopted as an emergency ordinance and shall take effect and be in force immediately upon its adoption.
