COMMERCE MAYOR USES TAXPAYER FUNDS TO HIRE PERSONAL ‘BODYGUARD’

LA MIRADA, CA., JUNE 28, 2019

YOUNG VETERANS TAKE ON DIFFERENT TRAINING, READY FOR OWNERSHIP BY TAMMYE MCDUFF

Many question John Soria's decision after witnesses said he joined the fight and sucker punched a Councilman BY BRIAN HEWS It was May 18, 2019 when HMGLCCN first reported on a "huge" fight that broke out at the annual Contract Cities convention at the Renaissance Indian Wells, allegedly instigated by Commerce Councilman Ivan Altamirano. Several witnesses to the melee have told Palm Desert detectives that after Commerce Councilman Ivan Altamirano sucker-punched fellow councilman Leonard Mendoza, allegedly over an argument involving cannabis in the City, the Chacons, along with Commerce Councilman Hugo Argumedo, ran over to check on Mendoza. As they were bent down checking on Mendoza, the witnesses said that Soria, political operative Luis Reyes, and disgraced former Bell Gardens Councilman Mario Beltran led a charge with over ten other “thugs” and jumped the Chacons and Argumedo from behind, hitting and kicking the men, knocking them all to the floor. The Chacons came away with several injuries, including a ruptured eye and a concussion, while Argumedo got a black eye and severely bruised ribs, their injuries consistent with being in a defenseless position on the ground. Soria, along with Altamirano, have maintained they were the victims who were hit from behind and suckerpunched. Yet Altamirano had minor injuries, with Soria attending another conference the following Monday, just 36 hours after the fight. Fast-forward to the June 4 Commerce regular City Council meeting,  where Soria entered the Council chambers accompanied by a man no one knew. As Soria took his seat behind the dais, the diminutive man took a seat behind Soria. Councilman Hugo Argumedo saw what was going on and questioned Soria about the man. To the surprise of many in the room, the man said he was Soria’s bodyguard,

PROUD VETERAN OWNERSHIP: Amanda Paez and Steven Hernandez (far right) at their Grocery Outlet celebration. Paez and Hernandez served in the military and had to go through seven months of training at the Grocery Outlet University to own and operate the store in La Mirada. With them are K-Earth radio personnel.

LA MIRADA’S ADOPTED BUDGET FUNDS KEY PROGRAMS AND SERVICES At its June 25 meeting, the La Mirada City Council adopted its budget for Fiscal Year 2019-20. The budget for the new fiscal year, which begins July 1, reflects the City’s commitment to providing services that enhance the quality of life in La Mirada. General Fund revenues of $40.7 million offset expenses of $36.6 million, without transfers. Funding for public safety, economic development, capital improvement projects, and community programs continues to be of high priority for the City. The City will continue to dedicate a large amount of its resources to enhance the safety of the community. Public Safety is the largest budget item at $9.4 million. Funding will be allocated for services provided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and support services offered to the community through the Community Sheriff’s Station. The City’s Public Safety Team will continue to provide services and programs that help strengthen partnerships with residents, businesses, and schools and help retain La Mirada among the safest cities in the region.

The La Mirada Grocery Outlet recently changed ownership with Amanda Paez and Steven Hernandez officially taking over the store located on Imperial Highway May 18, 2019. Both were in the armed forces and stationed in San Diego with Hernandez getting discharged before Paez. “I had already left the military and Amanda was still active duty. I wanted to have something close to her and to our home and there was a Grocery Outlet about a mile away from our house. I figured that would be a good place to start.” Hernandez says he applied and was hired as a cashier right away. “I really enjoyed working for the company, and began to move up in the store.” He says that he had been with the chain for about a year when he learned about the ownership program.

ervation Society, Pilato hosts the new series ‘Then Again’ where he interviews pop-culture subjects from the world of classic TV. The format follows Pilato's successful weekly "Throwback Thursday" live events which are held in Los Angeles. Executive Producer Steve Hillard states "Joel and I are thrilled to be in business with Herbie J. The interests of Council Tree Productions, as always, lie primarily with the artistic journey.

SCAQMD LAUNCHES HOURLY AIR FORECASTS APP STAFF REPORT The South Coast Air Quality Management District [SCAQMD] has announced the launch of its new hourly air forecast that has the ability to predict air quality levels, hour-by-hour for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ozone (smog) for up to two consecutive days. “Whether you are planning a hike after work, an outdoor exercise class, or making plans to take your children to the playground, this hourly air quality information can greatly impact public health,” said Wayne Nastri, South Coast AQMD’s Executive Officer, “we encourage all residents to download our new app or visit our website to better plan their activities during the times of day when air quality is predicted to be the cleanest.” During the summer smog season, hot and stagnant days can increase the formation of ground-level ozone - known as smog to frequently lead to unhealthy air quality. South Coast AQMD recommends that residents stay abreast of air quality levels in their area and adjust outdoor activities accordingly. Until now, South Coast AQMD had issued one daily forecast summarizing air quality conditions for 45 geographical areas in the region for the entire day. However, with improved modeling techniques developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [NOAA], South Coast AQMD can now issue hourly air quality forecasts for the next one to two days. "NOAA's air quality model predictions for the nation provide the foundation for essential services like these, which deliver critically important air quality forecasts to residents in southern

California," said Ivanka Stajner, Deputy Director, NOAA's Environmental Modeling Center. Predicted air quality levels are reported as an Air Quality Index [AQI]. A higher AQI indicates higher levels of air pollutants, with potentially greater health concerns. The hourly forecast can now show how levels are expected to change throughout the day. If the AQI predicts unhealthy levels, the public can choose to reschedule outdoor activities to the time or day predicted to be the healthiest. This is a vital tool for all residents in the South Coast Air Basin, especially doctors, patients, school personnel, parents, fitness instructors and sports coaches that work with sensitive groups such as children, the elderly or those with respiratory issues such as asthma. The hourly air quality forecasts can be found at www.aqmd.gov/forecast or via the smartphone app for iOS and Android http://www.aqmd.gov/home/ air-quality/air-quality-forecasts While the hourly forecast is useful for planning future activities, information can change, so South Coast AQMD recommends that the public also check real-time air quality through our app or by visiting: www.aqmd.gov/aqimap. South Coast AQMD is the air pollution control agency for Orange County and major portions of Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties.

Our city is filled with unsung heroes that do great deeds and never ask or receive recognition. They are a large reason why Downey is a great city. I would like to hear your story of how someone helped you. Your experience may have been with city staff, police officers, firemen, or just someone you may know who lives or works in Downey. Unsung heroes are extraordinary everyday people who do the right thing and are committed to excellence in their work, while being humble of their everyday contributions. It’s time we give our finest citizens the recognition they deserve. Please email me at rrodriguez@doweyca.org with your story so that we can recognize the individual at a city council meeting with a city certificate and city coin.

This is a magic and illusion team that will bring wonder to children’s eyes and spark their imagination. Both shows are free to the public and are guaranteed to be a great time for the family. With students out of school for the summer you will see many of them walking our streets to spend time with their friends at local restaurants and shops. Mothers are also walking with their little ones to local parks or to the Columbia Memorial Space Center for summer play dates and summer camps. Please remember to be mindful of your speed and drive carefully. Our police officers are patrolling our city and keeping our city safe but we also need you to do your part and abide by the law.

BELLFLOWER PROGRAM HELPS THOSE IN NEED

Community News - LosCerritosNews.net

CERRITOS AND LA PALMA AGREE TO JOINT STREET UPGRADES STAFF REPORT

KINGDOM CAUSES BELLFLOWER staff during a recruitment fair. KCB provides many forms of assistance and services to prevent households from becoming homeless. BY TAMMYE MCDUFF In December 2015, the Bellflower City Council approved to fund the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program [HPRP] with Our Place Housing Solutions, operating under Kingdom Causes Bellflower [KCB]. Since that time the agreement has been renewed annually to provide various forms of assistance and services to prevent households from becoming homeless and help those who are experiencing homelessness to be quickly re-housed and stabilized. Assistance under the HPRP includes rental vouchers, mediation services, housing searches, credit counseling/repair, and related costs for eligible extremely lowincome and at-risk homeless populations. Since it began 2016, the HPRP has assisted 64 families or individuals in the City with housing related services and short-

term rental assistance for those at risk of becoming homeless. An additional seventeen individuals were assisted under the Extremely Low Income Rental Assistance Voucher Program which provides rental vouchers of up to twelve months for those currently experiencing homelessness. KCB told HMG-LCCN that there are two separate types of funding that is utilized for the re-housing program. The first is one-time-only rental assistance and the other is an ongoing voucher program which offers a subsidy for up to twelve months. The one time assistance could help with rent that may be in arrears, moving assistance or utility assistance. This year KCB has assisted 31 households, 26 of them in the one-time assistance pocket and five with the voucher program. To request an evaluation for a household contact Kingdom Causes at 562.804.2189.

The Cerritos City Council recently agreed to participate in a joint project with the City of La Palma for street improvements. The work consists of street paving rehabilitation on Orangethorpe Avenue and South Street between Moody Street and Carmenita Road and Walker Street and Marquardt Avenue. The majority of the proposed work is in La Palma’s jurisdiction, but a small section falls within the Cerritos’s boundaries. The City of Cerritos will apply unused funds from another residential street improvement project toward its part in this upgrade. The City of La Palma will oversee the work and handle all administrative matters related to the project. Cerritos will reimburse La Palma for costs associated with improvements made to the section of the project that falls within the Cerritos city boundaries. The work is scheduled to start Monday, July 8.

FIREWORKS PROHIBITED IN CERRITOS STAFF REPORT As Independence Day approaches, residents are reminded that fireworks – including the “safe and sane� variet-

5

ies sold in neighboring cities – are not allowed in Cerritos. Cerritos Sheriff’s deputies will strictly enforce the law, which has helped protect thousands of residents from injuries and property damage.

PANERA BREAD OPENS IN NORWALK NEAR CITY HALL BY TAMMYE MCDUFF The Norwalk City Council along with City residents celebrated the grand opening of Panera Bread just steps from City Hall. “It’s just another high quality fast-casual restaurant opening in Norwalk,” said Vide Mayor Luigi Vernola, “we have been opening many lately, organizations recognize Norwalk is a great City to do business.” For the most part I like the restaurant chain. It is a combination of quick, hearty food alternatives that trick the brain into accepting it as a healthier option. The chain boasts everything from soups to salads to sandwiches. And then there's the bread and the dangerously delicious desserts that are far from low calorie. The company’s website boasts, “Food as it should be, with great taste. Food that does good things for your body and the world around you.” The menu touts no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors or colors from artificial sources. Without knowing exactly what ingredients are used, whether fresh or canned, you can’t be certain, however the food is flavorful and does appeal to the senses. It actually looks good, there is nothing better than the smell of baked bread and it actually tastes like homemade. Like many fast food restaurants, seating is optional, however the new Panera Bread has several selections. The inside dining room has tons of natural lighting and is decorated with very subtle natural

colors, giving to a relaxed setting. Guests can sit at a table top, a booth, or a bar with charging outlets, or choose to dine al fresco on the spacious covered patio, perfect for California evenings. I decided to indulge a bit and ordered the Baja Mac & Cheese. The dish was certainly colorful made from tender shell pasta in a blend of rich cheeses including a tangy Vermont white cheddar cheese sauce, topped with pico de gallo, avocado and cilantro. The dish was surprising light for a cheesy pasta dish, the avocado was fresh and the cilantro was not overpowering. My entrée came with a choice of bread and a drink. I opted for a French baguette side with a slightly blistered crust and although it is marketed as having a ‘winelike’ aroma – I didn’t notice it. To top off a delicious lunch, you must add a pastry or sweet and the Campfire S’mores Bar was just gooey enough, marshmallow-y enough and chocolat-y enough to round out the experience. There have been some reviews that say Panera Bread pricing is too high, and I agree. For a large bowl of Mac & Cheese, fresh baguette, S’mores bar and ice tea the ticket was around $16. Not to be missed is the Green Goddess Cobb Salad with Chicken, a healthy portion of good food or the new Summer Strawberry Caprese salad, both of which can easily be portioned into two helpings. The new location is at 12531 Imperial Highway, in Norwalk just steps away from City Hall and just in time for their summer concerts.

RABIES CLINIC TO BE HELD IN CERRITOS STAFF REPORT The City of Cerritos will hold a lowcost rabies clinic for dogs and cats in Shelter 1 at Cerritos Park East from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10.

Rabies shots for dogs and cats will be available for $10, and canine bordetella (kennel cough) shots cost $17 each. Canine coronavirus vaccines are $15, and Lyme disease vaccines will be $23. DHPP shots, also known as the “6-in-1” vaccine that protects dogs from distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza and parvovirus, will be available for $19. The comparable “4-in-1” (FVRCPP) shot for cats cost $18. Feline bordetella (FIP) shots will be $29, and feline coronavirus (FELV) shots are $20. In addition to vaccination fees, a $3 biohazard disposal fee will be charged for each treated animal. Checks for vaccines should be made

payable to the City of Cerritos. A driver’s license number and expiration date are required on all checks. Returned checks are subject to a $10 service fee. AVID microchipping will also be available for $25 per cat or dog. In addition to an annual rabies shot, dogs four months and older are required by law to have a license. Dog licenses will be sold to Cerritos, Long Beach, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach and Signal Hill residents at the clinic. Dog license fees for Cerritos residents are $20, or $10 for dogs that are spayed or neutered (a certificate is required to receive the discount). Seniors ages 60 and older may purchase up to three halfprice licenses per household for dogs that are spayed or neutered. To obtain a license, dog owners must show a copy of a current rabies certificate, valid for 12 months, and a sterility certificate if the dog is spayed or neutered. Checks for dog licenses should be made payable to City of Long Beach. For more information about animal licenses, call Long Beach Animal Care Services at (562) 570-7387.

GROCERY OUTLET

Continued from page 1 After Paez retired, the two were making plans for their life and decided that they would apply for ownership, “We were trying to decide where we wanted to go in life, and thought this would be a good start to owning our own business,” said Hernandez. They put in an application and were approved. The process was long and potential owners must go through a year of interviewing. “We had to attend the Grocery Outlet University for seven months, training in various locations,” said Paez, ”you need to get a real good feel of what being an owner operator is like. Once you go through that course, you are qualified to operate a store.” She says they were of-

fered the store in La Mirada and decided it would be a good city to lay down roots. A big part of the Grocery Outlet business model is to immediately become involved in the local community. Paez and Hernandez have joined the La Mirada Chamber of Commerce and have already adopted the food bank at Grace Evangelical Free Church. The EV Free team focuses on making friends with all who visit the food bank because many times, people in difficult financial situations need more than free groceries; they need someone to care about them, walk alongside them, listen to them, and pray for them. “We believe in the mission of EV Free,” says Paez,” and they are part of the LA Mission Food Bank.” Shoppers can contribute to EV Free by purchasing a $5.00 grab bag as they enter the store. Grocery Outlet then fills that bag and distributes to others. The couple has already reconfigured the store for easier shopping, they are stocking with as many possible choices as they can, and have already added 400 new items since taking over in May. K-Earth 101 brought their street team to the store on Wednesday afternoon for great tunes and free stuff. Josh Cuadra, Street Team Crew drove a brand new Dodge Ram to the store, ”K-Earth has teamed up with Grocery Outlet and we are giving away 50 $5.00 store gift cards, an opportunity for people to be part of a huge raffle – one year of free groceries - and they can enter the ‘You and Who’ contest, where someone wins this truck and then wins another identical one to give to a loved one.” Come by and give this veteran couple a visit. The store is located at 15745 Imperial Highway.

LA MIRADA

Continued from page 1 Public Works was budgeted at $7.6 million. This funding supports graffiti removal, clean streets and sidewalks, park and landscaping maintenance, and City facility enhancements. It also provides support for capital project administration. The remaining $19.6 million will fund other Departments including City Administration, Community Development, Community Services, and the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. A total of $23.31 million is allocated for capital improvements to improve neighborhood roads, resurface major streets, replace street identification signs, and landscape center medians. Projects will include construction on the fifth phase of Measure I Neighborhood Street Improvements, traffic signal and lighting enhancements on Rosecrans Avenue to improve pedestrian and commuter safety, landscaping enhancements on La Mirada Boulevard, Rosecrans Avenue, and Valley View Avenue, and various facility improvements. “A strong financial foundation enables the City to provide quality services and programs to the community,” says City Manager Jeff Boynton. “The City continues to explore new and innovative ways to provide high quality services in an efficient and cost-effective manner.” The City has a long-standing commitment to financial accountability and ensuring financial stability. La Mirada officials achieve this by practicing conservative revenue forecasting and managing finances responsibly. To read a full budget report for FY 2019-20, visit the City’s website at cityoflamirada.org.

SORIA

Continued from page 1 hired by Soria and paid by Commerce taxpayers to “protect” him, but he refused give his name. Somewhere in between the Contract Cities convention and June 4, Soria, who admitted to HMG-LCCN that he was a former Thai Kickboxing instructor, decided to hire the bodyguard. He said he “he feared for his life,” the fear apparently related to the Contract Cities melee, the same melee that witnesses told detectives Soria, Reyes and Beltran jumped and beat people from behind. An indignant Councilman Hugo Argumedo stated, “[Councilman Leonard] Mendoza and I were the ones who were beat up, is he guarding us too? Why won’t you tell us your name? Who is paying this guy? There are six armed Sheriff’s Deputies in the building and you need a bodyguard?” When the Sheriff’s learned that the man was a bodyguard, they asked if had a gun, the man answered no. “This guy is five foot, ten inches tall, maybe 170 pounds,” Argumedo told HMG-LCCN, “and he is a bodyguard, without a gun, paid by the City, give me a break.” The meeting ended without the bodyguard revealing his name. Sources have told HMG-LCCN that the bodyguard is with Soria all the time, including travelling with him to all committee meetings, only leaving his side when Soria is at work. Soria did not respond to any questions sent June 5 from HMG-LCCN concerning the bodyguard.

ASSESSOR

Continued from page 1 and accurate manner,” said Assessor Jeff Prang. “These awards highlight the ability of the dedicated, hard-working professionals of the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office to fulfill both goals. And that, in turn, allows us to better serve the residents and businesses in the county.” Assessor Prang’s office appraises the value of properties, and that valuation translates into taxes that results in public services such as police, fire, education and roads, to name just a few. As an example the assessed value of properties both residential, commercial and industrial in Cerritos for 2017 was about $9.23 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to about $9.63 billion which reflects an increase of about $399 million, according to Los Angeles County records. That additional valuations translates to additional tax revenues of about $399,000 in 2018. In Artesia for 2017 the value was about $1.6 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to about $1.7 billion which reflects an increase of about $83 million, according to Los Angeles County records. That additional valuations translates to additional tax revenues of about $83,000 in 2018. In Norwalk, the value for 2017 was $7.2 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to about $7.7 billion which reflects an increase of $448 million. That additional valuations translates to additional tax revenues of about $445,000 in 2018. In Lakewood, the value for 2017 was $9.1 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to $9.6 billion which reflects an increase of $489 million. That additional valuations translates to additional

tax revenues of about $489,000 in 2018. In Commerce, the value for 2017 was $5.2 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to $5.4 billion which reflects an increase of $150 million. That additional valuations translates to additional tax revenues of about $150,000 in 2018. In Bellflower, the value for 2017 was $5.2 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to $5.5 billion which reflects an increase of $244 million. That additional valuations translates to additional tax revenues of about $244,000 in 2018. In Bellflower, the value for 2017 was $5.2 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to $5.44 billion which reflects an increase of $244 million. That additional valuations translates to additional tax revenues of about $244,000 in 2018. In La Mirada, the value for 2017 was $6.3 billion and for the following year, 2018, it increased to $6.6 billion which reflects an increase of $350 million. That additional valuations translates to additional tax revenues of about $350,000 in 2018. As with MATS, Train Tracks was developed by the Assessor’s Office, first implemented as a pilot in February 2018 to track required education and training for licensed appraisers in order to ensure these experts retain their certification by the state. This continued education and training is particularly crucial in Los Angeles County, where the number and complexity of properties require that appraisers stay current on appraisal techniques/ Train Tracks now includes over 630 appraisers and saves more than 1,280 personnel hours, translating to an estimated $70,000 in annual cost savings. Furthermore, the system can be adapted for use by other county departments where professionals are required to undergo regular training to remain certified in their respective trades.

DANA POINT-The Artesia Punishers 14-Under travel softball team, coached by Andy Macias, has not played in too many tournaments this past spring and summer. But, the one tournament that matters will be the one the team will play in in the few weeks, which will be the USA Nationals. The Punishers, with only 11 players for this tournament, went 1-2 in pool play action last Saturday at Dana Hills High, then fell to the (Rancho Cucamonga) Firecrackers-Garcia 9-5 this past Sunday for its only game in the single elimination tournament. The Punishers were unable to get a runner on base through the first three innings, but it was a completely different story in the bottom of the fourth inning when 11 batters stepped up to the plate. On the first pitch, Jazmine Macias

TRIPLE CROWN SPORTS RED, WHITE AND BLUE TOURNAMENT

SHORTHANDED ARTESIA PUNISHERS 14-UNDER TEAM STRUGGLES IN FINAL TOURNAMENT BEFORE NATIONALS BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER (Bellflower High) smacked a home run to the left field gap. That would be flowed by base hits from Peyton Brusick (Palos Verdes High), Alicia Amaya (Bellflower High) and Keili Bailey (Bellflower High). Three pitches later, Mia Mastan (Ridgecrest Intermediate) reached on an error before singles from Lily Uriarte (St. Pancratius) and Lucy Montelongo (Marshall Academy) loaded the bases. On a 2-2 count, a base hit to center from Anaiyah Yniquez (Our Lady of Rosary) brought home Mastan to make it a 4-2 contest. “In the fourth inning, that’s when we made changes,” Macias said. “We got our little girls in there. They’re actually 12-year old’s playing 14-U. We got them in there because they’re very good bunters and some of them just keep the ball on the ground.” Despite a scoreless fifth inning from both teams, the Punishers were still

feeling the momentum. But that was immediately lost when the Firecrackers erupted for seven runs to blow the game wide open. After Mastan worked the first five frames, allowing four hits and the two runs while throwing 46 pitches, Jazmine Macias replaced her and was greeted with a two-pitch triple from Isabel Tellez. Two straight hits and a walk loaded the bases and following an out, two consecutive run-scoring singles made the score 7-4. “We made the change for the reason that we had went [through] the batting order twice and…our center fielder is our main pitcher,” Andy Macias said. “As you could see, they were hitting everything off her and we had to go back to our number two pitcher.” The Punishers wouldn’t go down without a fight in the bottom of the sixth inning. With one out, Uriarte singled to left but was out on second when Montelongo reached on a fielder’s

choice. Yniquez then tripled three pitches later but was thrown out at home trying to stretch the hit into an inside the park home run. “We sent her because the ball was hit all the way to the fence,” Macias said. “I think we had a good chance and the blue told us at the end if she would have slid, she would have been safe.” Yniquez was the lone Punisher to get two hits while seven players all picked up a hit. The loss wrapped up a rough weekend that saw the Punishers fall to the (Costa Mesa) California Cruisers-Lowry 7-0 as they were held to two hits with only three runners reaching first base. In the next game, the Punishers rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the first inning to knock off the Santa Ana Xtreme-Maquivi 6-3. But pool play action ended with a 15-2 setback to the (Temecula) EC Bullets-Delamater. The Punishers will take this weekend off, then spend the first two weekends next month playing in friendlies before participating in the USA Southern California Championships July 17-21, which they had qualified for a few weeks ago in the state qualifier where they finished in third place. At time of press, there were 10 14-Under teams that had qualified for the USA Southern California Championships. In 2016, the Punishers finished in fifth place in the Amateur Softball Association National Championship. The next season, they were second in the American Fastpitch Association National Championship and last season, the Punishers finished in second place in the United States Specialty Sports Association National Championship as well as fifth place in the USA National Championship.

PREMIER GIRLS FASTPITCH FRESNO QUALIFIER

ARTESIA PUNISHERS 16-UNDER GONZALES TEAM GOES OUT QUICKLY IN FINAL PGF QUALIFIER BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER in their half of the inning. Consecutive walks to Alyssa Tarasi (Huntington Beach High) and Lockett and groundout from Lopez put a pair of runners in scoring position. But the Punishers would just get a sacrifice fly from Plaza for the only score. The next morning, the Punishers would be completely dominated by the Fresno Force, 15-2, ending their bid to qualify for the PGF National Championships at the end

Alexis Duenas (Artesia High) was hit by a pitch to load the bases and replaced by Maya Ledesma (Millikan High). Elyse Silva would be safe on an error, allowing Lopez to tie the game and Diaz and Ruiz would also be hit by a pitch, the latter allowing Ledesma to score the go-ahead run. But the Choppers would regain the lead with a four-run top of the fourth inning. The Punishers would have a chance to tie or win the game

of July. The Force scored five runs in the top of the second inning before the Punishers got on the board in their half of the inning. Diaz doubled and moved to third on a groundout from Ruiz. After Lockett was walked, a groundout from Destiny Avila (St. Anthony High) plated Diaz. In the next inning, Duenas flied out to right field before Silva and Ivanna Villalobos (Bell Gardens High) were walked. Diaz then came up and smacked her second double of the game, allowing Silva to score. Diaz would go three for three as the Punishers would collect four hits. However, the team would also leave eight runners on base and commit five errors on defense. Lockett also worked into the third inning, yielding five hits and five runs, all unearned. Even though the Punishers failed to qualify for the PGF National Championships, they are still going to the Triple Crown Sports World Series in Park City, Utah July 15-20.

PIONEER

It was a very quick appearance in the Premier Girls Fastpitch’s Fresno Qualifier for the Artesia Punishers 16-Under team coached by Vince Gonzales. In a span of roughly 16 hours over two days, the Punishers went two and out and managed five hits in the two games. Last Friday night, the Punishers squandered a one-run lead in the top of the fourth inning and fell to the Southern California Choppers-Del Castillo 7-5. In the bottom of the second inning, and already down 3-0, Mya Diaz (Anaheim High) was walked and replaced by Rachelle Garcia (Monrovia High). After a sacrifice from Jaela Ruiz (Paramount High) and a groundout from Briana Zarate (Legacy High), Diaz would come home on an error. The Punishers would take the lead in the next inning and began with a walk to Clarissa Lockett (Hawthorne Math and Science Academy), who then stole second on a 1-2 count to Jessica Lopez (Los Osos High). Five pitches later, Lopez singled and the runners moved up on the throw. The hit would be the only one for the Punishers in the contest. That set the stage for Natalie Plaza (Pacifica High), who grounded out to plate Lockett.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Affinia Default Services, LLC, as the duly appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded 03/16/2007 as Document No.: 20070592853, of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of Los Angeles County, California, executed by: MARIA ANTONIETTA LINKEVITCH, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN, as Trustor, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable in full at time of sale by cash, a cashier's check drawn by a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state). All right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and state, and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust.

Said sale will be made in an “AS IS” condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $468,629.03 (Estimated).

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site, www.nationwideposting.com, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9551-3631. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

TAKE PREVENTATIVE STEPS AGAINST WEST NILE VIRUS As temperatures continue to rise, vector control experts stress the need for the public to take preventative steps against mosquitoes. West Nile virus is a mosquito-transmitted disease that can cause debilitating illness and death to humans as well as birds, horses and other wildlife. Twenty percent of infected people will exhibit flu-like symptoms, and one in 150 people infected will require hospitalization. There is currently no cure or vaccine for the virus. The Greater Los Angeles Vector Control District (GLACVCD), a local

To advertise call 562-407-3873

government and public health agency dedicated to reducing populations of public health vectors and preventing human infection associated with mosquito-transmitted diseases, has issued the following tips to stay safe. • Eliminate standing water around the home. It takes as little as five days for mosquito eggs to hatch into biting adults. • Many children play sports or are outdoors from late afternoon to the evening hours, when mosquitoes are most active. Anyone outside during these hours should wear long-sleeved shirts and pants and use insect repellent containing DEET, Picaridin and oil of lemon eucalyptus. • To help West Nile Virus surveillance and control efforts, report dead birds at westnile.ca.gov.

For more information, call GLACVCD at (562) 944-9656 or visit glacvcd.org.

To minimize disruption to the businesses, the project has been divided into two phases. The first phase includes rehabilitating the parking lot at the northeast corner of Studebaker Road and Del Amo Boulevard. The space is currently subleased to three Auto Square dealerships. The cost of the project will be reimbursed in full by auto dealers over a three-year period. The work is expected to be completed in July. While work is being done, vehicles will be temporarily stored at the Los Cerritos Center in the parking lot area adjacent to the former Sears building.
