La Mirada Salutes Veterans at Olive Lawn Memorial Park By Tony Aiello lmlamplighter@gmail.com

57th Assembly campaign turns into a war of charges and counter charges

A beautiful La Mirada spring morning greeted over 300 people as they attended the annual Memorial Day Program at Olive Lawn Memorial Park in La Mirada this past Monday. The traditional program was hosted by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) La Mirada Post 9148, its Ladies Auxiliary, and Olive Lawn-along with added support provided by the City of La Mirada. Past Commander Rick Bergquist presided over the ceremony, informing the crowd the holiday was formerly known as Decoration Day, and originated after the American Civil War. But by the 20th century, Memorial Day

he race for a local California State Assembly seat between Democrats Rudy Bermudez and Ian Calderon has turned ugly and now includes charges of money laundering, and hiding personal income sources, and the filing of complaints with state campaign regulators. Did Assemblyman Tony Mendoza mastermind an elaborate money laundering scheme to skirt California campaign finance laws to help benefit the campaign of the candidate who is running to take his place in Sacramento? Did assembly candidate Ian Calderon fail to report $60,000 in income to state officials? State campaign reform officials have opened up an official inquiry to determine if Mendoza and Assembly candidate Rudy Bermudez worked in tandem to avoid campaign contribution limits after $50,000 in donations were allegedly transferred between at least a half dozen campaign committees involving at least four local elected officials. Mendoza is a former Chairman of the controversial Latino Caucus that is comprised of elected officials in Sacramento who serve as members of the Assembly and State Senate. This week Latino Caucus Chairman Assemblyman Ricardo Lara blasted Mendoza in a statement that has sent several political observers into a tailspin. “Latino Caucus Chairman Assembly Member Tony Mendoza, acting on his own accord and without input from Members of the Latino Caucus, provided a recommendation to transfer $50,000 from Yes We

Two La Mirada Softball Teams Win Mirada Madness Tournament 14U and 8U Gold take titles. By Ryann Ippolito, 14U Remarkable plays, astonishing home runs, high-speed pitching, and unforgettable memories were just the beginning of the La Mirada 14u all star team’s annual Memorial weekend tournament known as “Mirada Madness”. And “madness” it was. The girls battled for four days (one longer than most teams) to win the championship they deserved. Not only did La Mirada bring pride to their city by winning the whole tournament, but managed to go undefeated all weekend, thanks to a strong defense and miraculous pitching by Miranda Herrera, Alexis Ortega, and Madelyn Falcetti. Getting all the way to the top took hard work and dedication – exactly what these girls had. Friday night was the first step, against Pico. Shivering from the night’s chills, La Mirada battled through and won with a final score of 4-0, with RBIs from Savannah

La Mirada 14U players and coaches proudly display their first place trophies won at the "Mirada Madness" tournament held here in La Mirada this past Memorial Day weekend. See 8U story and picture on page 11. Hofman and Victoria Calcanas. Saturday was a new day, the team feeling refreshed and ready to take on Long Beach Heartwell. With Ortega pitching and a tough defense behind her, such as Ebonie Coleman’s great play from

right field, La Mirada wasn’t going down without a fight. A homerun made by Gwenda Garcia could quite possibly have saved the entire game, the final score being 4-3.

Weekly Crime Summary

May 21-27, 2012

Part I felony crimes reported last week rose from 15 the previous week to 24. This increase was mainly attributed to more vehicle burglaries logged. Commercial burglaries and robberies also increased. Residential burglary and vehicle theft declined. Patrol deputies handled 291 calls for service last week, up from 271. The 2012 weekly average in calls for service is 265. One robbery was reported after a cell phone was forcefully taken by a male suspect from his estranged spouse on Thursday May 24 at 4:00 p.m. in the Los Cerritos Center. The suspect was arrested, the phone recovered, and the crime was reclassified from a robbery to a domestic matter by the District Attorney’s Office. Residential burglaries dropped from four to three last week. One entry was made via an open window, a front door was kicked in, and another window was pried open. Costume jew-

elry, MP3 players, laptop computers, and flat screen TVs were taken. The 2012 weekly average in residential burglaries is now 4.0. We always recommend the installation of a monitored alarm system. With window stickers or alarm company signs, your home will not be attractive to a potential burglar surveying (or casing) your neighborhood for targets. If entry is attempted, an audible alarm tells the suspect(s) to flee while alerting the alarm company, who in turn will call the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station. Two commercial burglaries were logged last week, up from one the week before. A fitness center locker was burglarized where a wallet, cash, and credit cards were taken. A closed business was involved in the second case. After a hole was cut in a door, surveillance cameras were removed. The 2012 weekly average in “other structure”/commercial burglaries is 1.6. Vehicle burglaries rose from nine to 13. High-volume commercial parking lots were the crime scenes in all 13 last week. Nine were SUVs. Briefcases, tools, tote bags, CDs, a roll of tape, purses, ID, credit cards, sunglasses, MP3 players, clothing, laptop computers, cash, jewelry, and cases of drinking water were among the items reported stolen. The 2012 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 7.7. Vehicle burglary is the most frequently reported felony crime in the City of Cerritos. Last week, window smashes, (the most common entry method), was used in nine cases. Are you willing to leave valuables in the passenger compartment that are visible and only protected by less than a quarter inch of glass? Why take a chance? If your property is valuable and important to you, consider leaving it at home or taking it with you when you exit the vehicle. No vehicle thefts were reported last week. The 2012 weekly average in this category is now 3.7.

minutes to calm them down. This was one of the very few times the two of them had visited me together. “This is a surprise,” I said. “What brings you here so early in the day?” “We met for breakfast, VAL LYNDER said, “and decided we should include you in our conversation.” I sat back in my chair, trying to digest what they had just said. “What were you discussing?” I asked. “The West Basin Municipal Basin election,” VAL LYNDER blurted out. “What about it? “Who is backing Assemblyman Tony Mendoza and why does he want to get elected to the Board when it’s common knowledge he plans to run for State Senate in two years?” “Not only that, “ added my Friend from Fruitcake, Florida, but did you know he contributed $5,000 to the “Coalition for Clean Affordable Water” which has been running ads citing incumbent Phil Hawkins and the District with corruption.” I looked at the two of them and replied, “ I know what the accusations are. They have yet to provide proof of their accusations.” My Friend from Fruitcake, Florida asked, “ Do you know that when the “Coalition” filed their papers with the

state’s Fair Political Practice Commission [#1346217] they failed to list the name of their treasurer which I believe is required. What I don’t understand,” he continued, “is how the “Coalition” could register as a non profit organization without listing the name of their treasurer..” “That’s an interesting question” I replied. At this point VAL LYNDER, DEFENDER OF ALL THAT IS TRUE interjected. “In its ad, the “Coalition” claims Mr. Hawkins wants to give $965,855 from $3 million in state and federal government awarded to the District for a distribution and efficiency study to Tom Calderon, a District consultant.” “According to Mr. Hawkins, that’s not true,” I said. The contract for the study is still out to bid.” “You know, “ my Friend from Fruitcake, Florida said, “Elections here in California and in Fruitcake are similar but different. Back in Fruitcake we look for candidates who really want to serve the people as opposed to candidates who are looking to serve themselves. I hope the voters in this election here do the same.” “I agree, “ said VAL LYNDER, “but this is California and everything is bigger and more complicated and unfortunately unless it effects the people directly, they

don’t really pay attention to the issues.? “Well, it seems to me they better pay attention to this Central Basin election,” stated VAL LYNDER, because if they don’t they’ll have no one to blame if their water bill increases but themselves.“ “You know,” I said, “there’s more involved in this election than meets the eye. Not only is Phil Hawkins seeking reelection but two other incumbents are also fighting to retain their seats. If all three lose and a new majority is elected, you will see some political maneuvering involving control of the water we use in our homes that will make your head spin. “You mean the battle over whether West Basin continues control over the water in the basin or the Water Replenishment District which wants control,” interjected VAL LYNDER. “You hit it right on the head,” I said. “Well,” my Friend from Fruitcake, Florida concluded, “I can see that political campaigns here are similar to those in Fruitcake, but more violable. I just hope the voters here study the issues and make the right choices.” Saying that he got up to leave, taking VAL LYNDER’s umbrella in one hand and helping her up with the other. “Nice talking with you,” he said as he escorted VAL LYNDER, DEFENDER OF ALL THAT IS TRUE out the door.

he Artesia City Council has voted by majority to allow the Artesia Chamber of Commerce to lease for one year at no cost office space in the Albert O. Little Community Center in Artesia Park on Clarkdale Avenue, along with a consensus among the Council members that the Chamber should be more active in fund raising projects for the City. With “Yes” votes by Councilmen Victor Manalo, Miguel Canales, and Tony Lima, over-ruling Mayor Pro Tem Sally Flowers, with Mayor John Lyon abstaining. Mayor Pro Tem Flowers said she always has disagreed on the use of the Community Center office space by the Chamber simply because she maintains the belief that the Chamber operations should not be in the park and near the children. The council majority carried the motion to grant the request to utilize the available office space in the Community Center for the Chamber’s daily general operations and monthly board meetings. Under the lease agreement, the Chamber will be responsible for the daily maintenance and upkeep of the office space including trash removal and general cleaning. The City will provide utilities such as

electricity, gas, waste disposal and restroom facilities. Costs associated with the installation of additional phone and internet lines will be the under the accountability of the Chamber. The existing office furniture and equipment owned by the City may be utilized by the Chamber within the office space made available to them. Any damages resulting from the use of City properties by the Chamber will be the responsibility of the Chamber to repair or replace. The Chamber desires to affix a signage at the exterior entrance to the office in which case related fees will be the sole responsibility of the Chamber. The term of the lease will be for one year although the agreement can possibly be cut short with a 30-day notice by the City as per clarification by City Attorney Kevin Ennis. A nominal fee of $1 per year shall be charged for the use of office space. The Chamber will also be required to carry a liability insurance as outlined in the lease agreement. Before the decision to offer the available room at the Community Center, the Council has been debating over the option of assisting the Chamber with a financial contribution for an office lease at the Artesia Towne Center or providing the office space at the Community Center.

discussion, Councilman Tony Lima cautioned the members to be frugal on the use of City’s general funds especially with the oncoming fiscal difficulties. Councilmen Victor Manalo and Miguel Canales were in favor of allowing the use of the available room at the Community Center in lieu of financial assistance which as the former stressed was doubtful in view of expected tight fiscal budget for 2012-2013.

Local baseball coach convicted of sexually abusing teenage girls Following a day of deliberations, jurors today convicted a former middle school teacher accused of sexually abusing two teenage girls, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced on Thursday. Antonio Gomez, 41, of Downey was convicted of 12 counts of lewd act upon a child with a special allegation found true that the defendant committed the offenses on more than one victim. Jurors also found true an allegation that the defendant had substantial sexual conduct with one victim under age 14. Gomez also involved with the Oakley Stingrays, a youth baseball organization that uses Zimmerman Park in the city of Norwalk. The victims are not associated with the Norwalk based team, prosecutors said. Deputy District Attorney Martha Carrillo of the Sex Crimes Division prosecuted the case. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lance Ito ordered the defendant remanded into custody without bail. Gomez is expected to be sentenced on June 27 in Department 110 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. The defendant faces a maximum sentence of 22 years in state prison. The offenses, which took place between June 1, 2005, and June 30, 2006, involve two former students who at the time of the offenses were between the ages of 13 and 15. Gomez was a physical education teacher at Robert Louis Stevenson Middle School in East Los Angeles. Officers of the Los Angeles Police Department investigated the case.

W

e are all gathered here today to pay our tribute, show our love and respect to the Veterans of the Civil War and those of the first Middle East Conflict who passed away during and after their services and sacrifices to their country, said Commander Loren Bures, Gen. W.S. Rosecrans Camp No. 2, Sons of

The Artesia-Cerritos Woman’s Club donated, arranged and distributed flowers on the Civil War and Spanish American War veteran graves in Artesia Cemetry May 28. Club Spokesperson Gail Grossman said this was the 16th year the club has participated in the ceremony. Club members made 47 wreaths this year. Participating in this year program were Delores Eveland, President Judy McNatt, Nancy Sousa, Genia Jackson, Naomi Teal, Gail Nagaoka, Barbara Appelbury, Susan Sell, Judi Mendes and several spouses and friends of the club.

Veteran’s Memorial at Artesia Cemetery.

Union Veterans of the Civil War. Speaking at the 16th Annual Memorial Day celebration at the Artesia Cemetery along Artesia Blvd., Cerritos, CA, Cmdr. Bures continued, “may we all realize the sanctity of the place and hour.” After his short address, an invocation in earnest appreciation of the services and sacrifices of war veterans was recited, followed by the Oath of Allegiance, then “God Bless

America” was played by the Gahr High School Band. Zack Snow sounded Taps and Terry McCarthy played his Bagpipes, alternately, as fitting tribute to the War Veterans laid to rest in the sprawling and clean 14-acre 146 year-old Artesia Cemetery. As attested by Trustee Richard Redmayne, the first burial took place in 1866 and legislation for the improvement of cemetery district funds

was approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Sept. 17, 1948. In addition to the officers and associates of Artesia Cemetery, also present during the ceremonies were Artesia Mayor John Lyon and Councilman Miguel Canales who placed a Memorial Day Wreath at the symbolical war veterans marker standing at the middle of the cemetery as part of the ceremonies.

Continued from page 1 Can, an Independent Expenditure Committee (IEC), to another IEC prior to his resignation as Chair of the Caucus,” Lara said in a prepared statement to La Mirada Lamplighter. “The funds have since been transferred numerous times and have been used to support candidates who are not endorsed by the Latino Caucus. As the current Chair of the Latino Caucus, I do not condone or support his actions,” Lara said. Bermudez represented the current 56th Assembly District, which includes Cerritos, Artesia, Norwalk, and Buena Park, from 2002 until 2006. He was defeated by Ron

Martinez and Urquidi both were elected to their school boards in 2011 and both have endorsed Bermudez for Assembly. Bermudez, meanwhile, has endorsed Power for the Westminster school board. Power once worked for Bermudez as a press secretary and legislative aide. State records obtained by LML also show that on March 13, Residents for Good Government gave $10,000 to a committee called the Coalition for a Safer California. Late last year, that committee paid former Assemblyman Bruce Young several thousand dollars for consulting work. Residents for Good Government spent more than $13,000 on three different slate mailers that promotes Bermudez current campaign for assembly. Young is a former resident of Cerritos and is a past member of the ABC Unified

quired by state law,” Young said. “Ian signed forms under penalty of perjury, which could ultimately result in a felony prosecution. Ian’s complaint was filed by a voter in the 57th District,” Young said. Jaimes, the third candidate in the field told LML that “this campaign is about jobs, and getting people back to work, and nearly 25,000 homeowners in the 57th Assembly District have lost their homes due to foreclosure.” “I want to fix the mess people like Calderon and Bermudez are creating,” Jaimes said.

Mendoza succeeded Bermudez as the assemblyman for the district, and, now that Mendoza is termed out in November, Bermudez is seeking to return to the Assembly in the new 57the Assembly District and is engaged in a heated three way primary with La Mirada businessman Noel Jaimes and upstart candidate Ian Calderon. LCCN was presented at least 100 pages of documents from Leslie Rodriguez, campaign manager for Ian Calderon’s assembly campaign, that shows on March 13, a committee called “Residents for Good Government” gave $4,000 each to Richard Martinez, a school board member of Little Lake City School District; Jesus “Jesse” Urquidi, a school board member of the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District; and Jamison Power, a candidate running for board the Westminster School District. Three days later, on March 16, all three of them gave $3,900 contributions to Bermudez’s campaign — the maximum amount of money allowed under the law.

Young has since become one of the most powerful lobbyists in Sacramento and is currently helping Bermudez in his campaign against Jaimes and Calderon. Young blasted the claim as “Calderonstyle politics.” “Rudy Bermudez has always supported full and complete campaign disclosure. As soon as the allegations were made available, the Bermudez campaign immediately returned the contributions in question,” Young told LCCN in an interview on Wednesday. “Remember these charges were filed by Ian Calderon’s paid campaign manager so they are clearly politically motivated. Let's let the FPPC regulators do their job,” Young said. “It’s important to note that the Fair Political Practices Commission is also investigating Ian Calderon for failure to Report nearly $60,000 in income and gifts as re-

There was now only one thing standing between La Mirada and the trophy now- Long Beach Heartwell. The early morning game started off

slow, and then in a turn of events, Ostrowski hits a solo homerun, taking the lead. Things only exploded then on for La Mirada. With great shots from Garcia, Ramirez, and Ippolito, incredible plays by Ortega, Breanna Gomez-Ortega, Calcanas, and Falcetti, and strategic, clever base running from Hofman and Coleman, La Mirada was unstoppable. With Herrera pitching her heart out, she pitched a shutout. No one from Long Beach could time her swift, precise pitches

accurately. The girls’ tight defense held the opposing team the entire game, resulting in first place for La Mirada, final score being 6-0. With many more weekend tournaments to come, La Mirada prepares to take it one game at a time. “Play this game like it’s your last!” says Coach Rueben Manriquez to his team. Following that philosophy, the girls from LM are ready to take on the next tournament, as if it were their last.

LMGSA 8U Gold is Mirada Madness Tournament Champion The La Mirada Girls Softball Association (LMGSA) held their annual girls softball tournament this past Memorial Day Weekend, Mirada Madness, and it lived up to its name. The tournament was scheduled to end on Sunday with Championship games to be played that afternoon, however with an unusual number of tiebreakers played prior to that, it extended two Championship games to Monday. The 8U Championship team was one of the games played. The LMGSA 8U Gold were involved in two tiebreaker games, otherwise called International Tiebreaker. In this format each team places their last batter at second base and can still play the inning as a full one. Score the runner from second and as many more after that. The home team can do the same, but can end the game by scoring more, which the 8U Gold did. Their first tiebreaker was against another La Mirada team, 8U Silver. In this game the Gold team spotted their

Their next game, versus Long Beach Heartwell Gold, the team had to come from behind to tie it in the

last inning to put it into overtime, each pitch could have meant the difference between victory or defeat. La Mirada did not cleanly field some balls, and committed four errors but was able to overcome those mistakes, and put them into position to win the game. Overtime went two innings, with the tying run at third, and the winning run at second, Lindsay Udell at the plate. She delivered the biggest hit of the game, right back toward center, where the two center fielders had to chase it down. Lindsay hit a triple scoring the runs needed for the victory 7-6, and advancing the Gold to the Championship game. It certainly was “madness”. The Championship game played on Monday was against this same team. Long Beach went on to play on Sunday night and eliminate Pico Rivera giving them their second loss in this double elimination tournament thus earning them another shot at La Mirada and a

Burglary Victim Hit by Gunfire in Norwalk By Randy Economy randy@cerritosnews.net

eputies responded to a gunshot victim call at around 7:30 p.m. May 16 on a local freeway. According to Lt. William Evans of the Norwalk station, deputies arrived on the north bound 605 Freeway, at Telegraph Road when they contacted the victim who had a gunshot wound on the left arm. Evans said the victim told officers that his parents were burglarized by three black males who attempted to pry open a window to their residence. “The suspects were startled by the residents and immediately ran away. One of the residents followed the suspects to their vehicle as the suspects

WWW.LMLAMPLIGHTER.COM drove toward him and attempted to run him over,” Evans said in a statement to the media on Thursday morning. Two family members then got into their own vehicle and chased the suspect vehicle northbound on the 605 freeway. The suspect vehicle then exited the freeway at Telegraph Road, and stopped at the end of the off ramp. The victim got out of his vehicle and approached the suspects on foot. Evans said the rear passenger of the suspect’s vehicle also got out and fired one round at the victim, striking him on the arm. The rear passenger got back inside the suspect’s vehicle, which fled westbound on Telegraph Road and out of view. CHP officers from the Santa Fe Springs office immediately arrived at the scene of the shooting, contained the area, and notified L.A. County Fire/Paramedics and Norwalk Sheriff’s Station. The victim was transported to St. Francis Hospital in stable condition. No other victims were injured. Evans said no other information was available to the media other than “the investigation is ongoing.”

Continued from page 11 berth the title game. This time La Mirada went on the offense batting first and took advantage of Long Beach and scored two runs in the first inning and three more in the third to give them a 5-0 advantage. Game over right?? Not so. Behind the pitching of Jaylen Pantages and Brooklyn Carreon, they held Long Beach scoreless until the third inning. Long Beach did not give up, they rallied with four runs to close the gap to 5-4 but La Mirada restored order with solid defensive plays to end the threat. La Mirada scored another run in the fifth, which turned out to be. In the sixth and last inning, La Mirada needed just three outs to win the game, but Long Beach refused to

quit. First batter up hit a soft grounder to the third base side, which Brooklyn quickly fielded but her throw to first was high over the first baseman and went down the field allowing the batter to score. Brooklyn shook off the throw and focused on getting the outs, striking out two of the next batters for the first and third outs, with outfielder Rylee Dally making a critical catch of a fly ball in right center field for the second out. Checkmate, Gold wins the Championship 6-5. In recent years the LMGSA 8U teams have been perennial contenders in tournaments and won the District Championship last year. If this past weekend is an indication of the level of competition that this team will face in upcoming tournaments prior to the LA/South Bay District Tournament, the 8U Gold certainly appears able to play at that level and repeat as District Champions.

You will be bidding on a lien, not the property itself. Placing the highest bid at 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.

Your vote on Tuesday, June 5th is important.

President Eisenhower said,

“The future of this Republic is in the hands of the American voter” These words are as true today as they were in 1956 when they were said.

Next Tuesday’s ballot is the first one in California history with an Open Primary. This means that you can vote for any candidate from any political party in the primary election. The top two vote-getters will face each other in the November general election. In some legislative and congressional races, this may mean that two candidates from the same political party will face each other.

Join me and millions of other Californians in casting our vote for the candidates we believe will best represent our interests.

See you at the Polls on June 5th

freshmen coming up and Emily Morrow is one of them. She plays that position extremely well and she played well today.” Kaiser tied the game in the fifth on a sacrifice fly from Jesslene Contreras and Gabbard’s base hit just inside of third base. All five runs the Cats scored came with two outs. Hughes scattered six hits and struck out three and for the most part, held the hot-hitting Cats in check. Kaiser entered the game with a .368 team average and had six starters batting at least .361. But Hughes walked five with four of them scoring. “Kelsey has done an outstanding job for us all year,” Jim Snyder said. “One of our top priorities of our game plan was to bear down on the front end of the leadoff hitter. We’ve been giving up some untimely walks all year and normally to the leadoff hitter. It was the front-end walks that were hurting us to some degree today.” The unseeded Lady Crusaders were facing their second straight seeded opponent, having edged second seeded La Quinta 4-3 on May 22. A win over Kaiser would have put V.C. in the semifinals against sixth seeded La Habra. V.C. has not been to the semifinals since 2006 when it advanced all the way to the championship game. “We were feeling good about that,” Jim Snyder said of the early lead. “We felt like we had the early momentum and then we let it get away. We don’t consider the La Quinta game an upset. We knew we could beat that team and we knew we could beat Kaiser today. We weren’t looking ahead; we know we would have had our hands full with La Habra next Tuesday. But we certainly felt that Kaiser was a team that we could play with and beat. “We’re very pleased with the season,” he added. “These girls worked really, really hard. I don’t think anybody expected us to be here. I’m very proud of them.”

The two wins came from No. 2 singles junior Sathwick Pathireddy, a 7-5 win over Matt Pham after trailing 3-5, and No. 3 singles junior Ruthwick Pathireddy, a 6-1 victor over Jeremiah Sahabu.

Cerritos Mayor Expresses Disappointment on Superior Court Decision on Redevelopment By Jerry Bernstein editor@cerritosnews.net

M

ayor Jim Edwards said, “The Sacramento County Superior Court’s decision to deny a request from a coalition of cities for an injunction which would have prevented the state from taking redevelopment property tax revenues is yet another disappointing court decision. Twelve cities in Orange County went to Sacramento Superior Court on May 27 seeking a temporary restraining order to keep the state from spending their former redevelopment dollars. The court denied their request. The cities specifically asked that the funds necessary to cover any disputed debts be sequested rather than spent, to ensure that money will be available in the event the successor agencies win their disputes. State Department of Finance Director Ana Matosanto described the cities’ request

“Walk4Hearing” Long Beach – Chances are you or someone you know is affected by hearing loss. It’s time to STEP UP! Hundreds of people of all ages, across the hearing loss spectrum, will be walking to raise awareness of hearing loss and to raise funds to provide information and support for people with hearing loss on Sunday, June 3, 2012 at Marina Green Park (between Shoreline Village Drive and Linden Avenue) Long

Continued from page 16 Ryan Mangosong 7-6 (7-4). Moments later, No. 1 freshman Mitchell Hoang and senior Alexander Pham trailed Valencia’s No. 2 Yash Kelkar and Daniel Kim 3-0, 4-3 and 5-4 and then won two of the last four points while serving in the tiebreaker. Those two results knotted the match at 4-4. But the No. 3 doubles of freshman Timothy Lee and junior Charles Xue fell to Shadrin Andres/Lindsey Youngquist 5-7, then two losses on the singles side made it 7-4 in favor of the Tigers. Sathwick Pathireddy closed out the second round with a 6-4 win over Sahabu after trailing 4-1 and again, the Wildcats were feeling a little bit of momentum swing their way. “So many of our singles [sets] have come from behind to win like that,” Williams said. “I tried to get him to be a little

as “meritless.” In a court filing on May 26 she said the cities had not presented any evidence that any enforcement obligations were erroneously denied by the department. Judge Timothy M. Fawley sided with the state and ruled the cities failed to show sufficient evidence that the department had actually rejected any legitimate debts. “The City of Cerritos can empathize with the coalition of cities as the loss of redevelopment funds is a tremendous blow to the economic recovery of communities throughout California.” said Mayor Edwards. “Redevelopment agencies formed by hundreds of California cities have made remarkable contributions to economic development, job creation, construction of affordable housing and the creation of public facilities which greatly enhance the quality of life.” He said property tax increment received by the Cerritos Redevelopment Agency funded such projects as the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station/Community Safety Center, Fire Station #30, the Cerritos Senior Center at

Pat Nixon Park, one gym at Cerritos High School, one gym at Gahr High School, the gym at Whitney High School, Heritage Park Play Island, Liberty Park, the Cerritos Park East Community Center, and the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. Property tax increment also funded the construction of the City’s affordable senior housing projects, such as Emerald Villas, Pioneer Villas, Vintage Cerritos and Fountain Walk. None of these community facilities would have been possible without redevelopment. The mayor continued, “Redevelopment was also instrumental in developing the Cerritos Towne Center, Los Cerritos Center, Cerritos Auto Square and Cerritos Industrial Park. The financial success of these projects has benefited the entire region as there are thousands of people employed in the businesses located in these developments. These employees purchase homes and spend their salaries in cities throughout the region, making a significant contribution to local economies.”

Beach, CA. Check-in is at 9:00 a.m. and the walk starts at 10:00 a.m. for a 5K (3.1 miles) walk. The Hearing Loss Association of America’s Walk4Hearing is a nationally coordinated effort to increase awareness about the causes and consequences of hearing loss. Since 2006, the Walk4Hearing has become the largest series of walks of its kind, with walks taking place in cities across the United States. Nationwide goal is a cool $1,300,000. Examples of local uses of Walk4Hearing Funds are: captioning and hearing assistive

technology at HLAA chapter meetings to make them accessible; scholarships toward college tuition for students with hearing loss; funding for hearing aids and devices for people who cannot afford them; installation of hearing assistive technology in public places, such as community rooms and public libraries; captioning of live theater productions; seminars on coping with hearing loss for families.

more aggressive. He’s been doing that all season long. He seems to not tire.” The third round began with Andres/ Youngquist completing a match sweep with a 6-3 win over Cupino/Lau. Then Kelkar/ Kim breezed past Lee/Xue 6-1, virtually clinching the championship at 9-5 and holding a 61-59 advantage in games won. The Tigers officially won the match when Im/Mangosong rallied from three games down to beat Hoang/Pham 6-4. “I thought they played up to their skill in those and then they kind of let down in this last round,” Williams said. “They were very nervous, I thought, in the beginning. The top two teams didn’t play well in the first round.” “I thought Mitch did extremely well,” Williams added. “He played way above his head He surprised me.” While the Wildcats have been in the finals before, they fielded a team with one senior, four juniors, three sophomores and

three freshmen. The Tigers, on the other hand, were making their fourth straight trip to the Claremont Club, having lost the past three seasons. “When you think about high school, in four years it’s over and usually you don’t get the freshmen,” Williams said. “So in three years, it’s over with. The experience, I don’t think, really comes in [as a factor].” The final two wins came from No. 1 sophomore Vignesh Sadras, a 6-4 decision over substitute Matt Yee, and Ruthwick Pathireddy, a 6-0 victory over Sahabu. Whitney ends the season at 22-3, a far cry from going 15-7 last season. This is the first time since 2003 that the Wildcats have won at least 20 matches and their second seeded spot was their highest since being the top ranked team in 2004, as well as 2003. “When I look back, I did not think we could win league, much less get here,” Williams said. “The boys really had to be convinced they could do it.”
