Steve Croft Takes Over Mayor’s Gavel at Emotional Transition in Lakewood

he Hawaiian Gardens City Council meeting started off well enough on March 12 with the approval of a generous $5,000 donation to the Hawaiian Gardens Little League for equipment and uniforms, but quickly turned south after that when a city councilman and a senior city official got into a verbal squabble. Sparks flew when Councilman Reynaldo “Rey” Rodriguez and Community Development Director Joe Columbo began an exchange about how bills were paid to a city contractor. Rodriguez questioned Columbo about the payment warrants to JAS, which serves as a city subcontractor that is utilized for engineer-

t was the “Changing of the Guard” on the Lakewood City Council this past Tuesday night. The Lakewood City Council completed its annual reorganization by selecting Steve Croft to serve as mayor for the next 12 months, and also named Todd Rogers to the post of vice mayor. Before Croft took the gavel, he and Rogers and Mayor Diane DuBois were sworn into office for another four-year council. The three were declared winners after no other resident ran against them in what would have been an election held on March 5th. DuBois was thanked for her past year of service throughout the night’s festivities that included a community reception that fea-

any local elected officials can’t wait to run for “higher office,” especially in these days of voter mandated term limits. But scores of city councilmembers, mayors, and even the county tax assessor have landed in hand cuffs for allegedly accepting bribes, committing forgery, money laundering, criminal public fraud and lots of other scandalous misdeeds. Then there is Downey Mayor Mario Guerra, who just may be “the exception to

the rule” of those who have been consumed with “bad behavior” in public office. His pristine reputation as a community leader recently reached another pinnacle when he embarked on a new asMario Guerra signment as Deacon at St. Linus Catholic Church in Norwalk. Guerra will be participating in Easter vigils as well as Holy Week services at the parish and he couldn’t be more thrilled or in his own words “incredibly blessed.” Guerra was ordained a Deacon in the Los Angeles Catholic Archdiocese by Cardinal Roger Mahony in 2002 and his

After a string of residential burglaries in Reporting District 0465, the La Mirada Public Safety Team deployed a Special Assignment Officer (SAO) unit of Sheriff’s Deputies to conduct a burglary suppression operation in the area. Working on instinct, the SAO team suspected that the suspects were possibly students from a local adult school. On the morning of March 22, Deputies saw a suspicious person knocking on a house door and looking in the mailbox. The suspect was stopped and detained. During questioning, it was determined that the suspect, a juvenile, and an accomplice attended a local adult school and were scouting houses in La Mirada in order to burglarize them before school started. One suspect also admitted to being involved in a previous residential burglary in the same area. Both juveniles were subsequently arrested. Both suspects are from out of the area and were arrested on various charges including attempted burglary, felony vandalism, probation violation, and conspiracy to commit residential burglary. Reporting District 0465 covers the neighborhood south of La Mirada Blvd., north of Stage Rd., and east of Escalona Rd.

ABOUT THE ABCUSD EDUCATION FOUNDATION The ABCUSD Education Foundation was founded in February 2012 to support district programs in jeopardy due to budget cuts. In the last year, the Foundation has supported many programs in the ABC Unified School District, including: two Ragnar Relay race fundraisers ; an УIt’s Up To All of UsФ pedestrian safety public education campaign, a school backpack initiative for homeless children, supported the first ABC Reading Olympics and sponsored two summer camps—one for 6th graders and one for developmentally disabled youth. It has organized a committed Board of individuals representing business and education who donate their time, finances and expertise to ensure that all ABC students and every ABC school succeeds.

By Brian Hews This past week, three cities went to court in an attempt to stop the Water Replenishment District of Southern California (WRD) from notifying the public about the rate setting process and scheduled public hearing. The cities of Signal Hill, Downey and Cerritos asked the court to enjoin WRD from sending notices to approximately 800,000 property owners within the district’s service area. Judge Ralph Dau summarily and forcefully dismissed the request for an injunction to stop WRD from issuing the notification. “We are pleased by the Court’s decision not to prevent WRD’s effort to notify parcel owners about our rate setting process and the public hearing,” said WRD Board President Albert Robles. “We believe the decision to communicate to all residential and business parcel owners insures that no one is excluded from our rate setting efforts and lends to a more transparent public process.” Representing the cities is the law firm of Aleshire & Wynder, which also serves as Signal Hill’s contracted city attorney. Signal Hill stopped paying their groundwater assessment to WRD in March 2011. At a city council meeting last month, Signal Hill City Attorney, David Aleshire defended the city’s refusal to pay the WRD water assessment by suggesting, “If [WRD] would go through a proper noticing and a proper hearing process . . . . we’d be happy to pay, but evidently, not withstanding our saying that, we have to just go down this litigation road to the bitter end.” At the same city council meeting, Signal Hill’s City Manager, Ken Farfsing, seemed to echo Mr. Aleshire’s stated posi-

tion: “It gets to accountability of the WRD for their rate increases to all of their member agencies and every resident and business that’s paying water rates in the Central Basin and also the West Coast Basin.” “WRD is making every effort to notify the broadest spectrum of parcel owners so that no one can come back to us and say that we wrongfully excluded them from the process” said WRD Board Member Rob Katherman. “While this may be troubling for a few cities, the fact is that WRD serves over 4 million residents throughout 43 local cities. We can’t simply ignore the vast majority of those who have a right to be engaged in our rate setting process.” Despite the cities’ efforts, the public notifications were mailed to approximately 800,000 parcel owners within WRD’s service area. WRD is in the process of determining its 2013-14 FY budget and will continue to hold regular public meetings soliciting the public’s input.

EX-BELLFLOWER HIGH SCHOOL COACH SENT TO PRISON FOR 28 YEARS

Three Local Cities File to Stop Public Notice Of Public Hearing Cities flip-flop on notifying residents about water rates

MARCH 29, 2013

By Randy Economy Justice took a swift toll on a former Bellflower High School track and girls’ basketball coach after he was sent to state prison for 28 years on Monday for molesting a teenage girl over a fiveyear span starting back when she was just 13 years old. Bryan E. Shepherd was sentenced by Norwalk Superior Court Judge Bryan E. Shepherd Peter Espinoza in a case that sent shockwaves around the popular local campus. The prosecutor in the case, Deputy District Attorney Jessica Tillson, said the 49-year-old Shepherd was imposed his sentence by Judge Espinoza after “impact

statements” were made by the victim and her mother and the victim’s boyfriend. Shepherd pleaded no contest earlier this year to continuous sexual abuse of a child and forcible lewd acts with a child. The 28-year sentence was part of a negotiated settlement of the case. Since Shepherd objected to restitution, there will be a hearing on that issue on April 23, Tillson said. Shepherd was charged on Dec. 21, 2011. He has been in custody since this arrest on Dec. 20, 2011, by investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Special Victims Bureau. Although Shepherd was a high school coach, authorities said the crimes did not occur at the school. The victim was molested from the time she as 13 in 2005 until she was 17 in 2010. The case was widely covered by media members throughout Southern California and beyond.

Freedom of the Press, Unless You Don’t Like the Press By Brian Hews Criticism of government finds sanctuary in several portions of the 1st Amendment. It is part of the right of free speech. It embraces freedom of the press. –Thomas Jefferson.

J

efferson had it right, without freedom of the press there is no representative government. I guess that does not count with some residents here in Cerritos. At last Tuesday’s council meeting, another Cerritos resident spoke at the public comment section of the meeting and said some very disturbing things about LCCN. He first started talking about how he loved Carol Chen and “Jim” Barrows, so I am guessing the check cleared. You could tell immediately where he was going. The resident began his slanderous tirade by asking advertisers to not support the paper. He was preaching to the crowd since the council had already voted to cut most advertising in LCCN. This while the council kept other newspaper advertising intact, LA Times and Press-Telegram; newspapers that have written much worse articles about them than LCCN has. The resident went on to say how the council “doesn’t get an hourly salary” and only gets paid $400 per month and how it was “fine that they ate $100 steaks.” I guess he was confirming that we were correct about our Travelgate story about Chen, Edwards, and Barrows and how they spent $600 on one meal. He was wrong about the salary, the $400 is for a

car allowance, they make much more in benefits and perks. Ask yourself why someone would spend $50,000 to win a Cerritos City Council seat? This is the same resident who, in July 2008 with Edwards, Chen, Barrows, Cho (yes, the same council four years ago) and Laura Lee presiding, pointed out how that council had a secret meeting to amend the two-term limit law and how “he did not like that.” Somebody should have done a background check on this guy before sending him up to the dais. The resident (racially) called out Councilman Cho asking if he knew what the six plaques on the wall were, (Constitution and the Bill of Rights.) He went on to accuse the entire council of not reading the Bill of Rights, alluding to the secret meeting, and said all of you (council) are accountable, if I want to know how much you are paid then I should get the information. So apparently in 2008 he did not like Barrows, Edwards and Chen, even wanting them to term out. Now all of a sudden they are his “best friends” as he put it. Sounds like political amnesia again. This is the same resident who in 2005 pelted test drivers from the Auto Square with rags and clumps of sod. He squirted water at them and demanded the city take action against one of the largest contributors of tax revenue to the city. He threatened to organize picket lines at the Cerritos Auto Mall excersing his freedom of speech rights. Rights that apparently do not apply to LCCN, according to this resident. Freedom of the press guarantees popular participation in the decisions and actions of government, and popular participation is the essence of our democracy. -Corazon Aquino

A Message from La Mirada Mayor Steve De Ruse

B

eing selected this week to serve as the new Mayor of the City of La Mirada in the coming year is truly an honor. I appreciate the support and confidence shown by my fellow members of Steve De Ruse the City Council, and City of La Mirada Mayor I pledge to always perform my duties in a manner that warrants the continued trust of La Mirada residents and businesses. For those who don’t know me well, let me briefly share a bit of my background. I came to live in La Mirada in 1976. My wife and I found La Mirada to be a good home to raise our family. I am a Pastor at a church in a neighboring community. I was active in La Mirada’s Clergy Council, as well as local organizations and City advisory bodies, before being elected to the City Council in 2011. The people of La Mirada have worked

together for generations to build the community that we enjoy today. It is my intent to continue working on behalf of all in our community to address the many challenges facing La Mirada. Our challenges are formidable, but not insurmountable. La Mirada is a fiscally sound and well managed city. While other communities have suffered major cuts in municipal service levels, we have tightened our belts and maintained the services our residents have come to expect. Our full-time staffing has been reduced by one third in recent years. We will continue cutting our costs where prudent. Public safety will remain La Mirada’s top priority. Our community has seen a 37 percent drop in crime since 2005, and we will continue working actively with local residents and businesses to maintain this excellent safety record. All of the members of La Mirada’s Public Safety Team, including those from the Los Angeles County Departments of Sheriff, Fire, District Attorney and Probation, deserve special recognition. Their efforts to keep La Mirada safe receive essential support from La Mirada’s Neighborhood Watch and Business Watch programs. During the coming year, we will begin investing the funds raised by Measure I, the one percent sales tax approved in 2012 by 66 percent of local voters. These funds will

Dear Editor,

eferring to the recent election in Norwalk on March 5, 2013, it seems “one man, one vote” does not always apply in counting ballots during the recent city council election. From reports in Los Cerritos Community Newspaper, it seems that 26 ballots were kicked out by the computer as the ballots were tabulated. Rather that inspect and count these 26 votes, the City Clerk decided not to count the votes at all and, a candidate, Enrique Aranda, noted the discrepencies in the counts and asked the City to recount the ballots and include the 26 votes that were left out. The recount tool place on Monday,

was troubled by the article in the Lamplighter newspaper of March 22, 2013, I feel obligated to respond. I am empathic toward the couple who were so ill-treated by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs at the checkpoint in La Mirada. To put a family with small children out on the street is unconscionable. I can’t believe an American citizen of our state could be treated in this manner.  Where is justice in all of this, not to mention compassion? Concerned resident of La Mirada, Harold Quarles

CERRITOS

March 18-24, 2013 33 Part I felony crimes were reported to the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station last week, up by three cases from the week before. Residential burglaries and vehicle burglaries were up, robberies remained the same and commercial burglaries and vehicle thefts declined. Patrol deputies responded to 281 calls for service last week up from 277 the previous reporting period. The 2013 weekly average in calls for service is 272. For the second week in a row one robbery was investigated. On Saturday March 23 at 3:10 p.m. a male shoplifting suspect fought with loss prevention personnel at a store in the Los Cerritos Center. The merchandise was recovered and the suspect fled on foot. Residential burglaries increased from seven to eight with another attempted last week. Four windows were shattered, two were pried, two doors or windows were left unlocked and one door was kicked in. Computers, iPads, coins and jewelry were taken Two suspects were arrested in two separate incidents. The new 2013 weekly average in residential burglaries is 5.8. Again, another week where residents called the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station when they observed something out of place. Two suspects were arrested last week but we need residents to continue calling in suspicious people and vehicles. Please call. Don’t hesitate. Commercial burglaries dropped from four to two last week. A high school locker had a lock removed and an iPad stolen. A closed business was left with a pried front door and computer hard drives missing. The 2013 weekly average in “other structure”/commercial burglaries is 2.6. Vehicle burglaries were up from eight to nine. Four were targeted in high-volume commercial parking lots and in an unusual shift of crime scenes, five occurred in residential neighborhoods. Six were SUVs. Cameras, iPods, sunglasses, clothing, perfume, cash a tote bag and an in-dash stereo were reported as the losses. The new 2013 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 8.5. Note that the majority of vehicles targeted were SUVs. This has been a trend in Cerritos for years. SUVs do not have trunk space and occupants will attempt to hide items under seats, in the center console, or underneath an object on the seats. This is well known to thieves. Take your valuable property with you. Cash, iPods, sunglasses, cameras and perfume (as stolen last week), are relatively small objects and easy to transport. Vehicle thefts were down from six to two last week. Both were from high-volume commercial parking lots. One was a Honda and the other an SUV. The 2013

Neighborhood Watch Town Hall Meeting Announced The next Neighborhood Watch Town Hall Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday April 24, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at Cerritos Park East. Please note the change of venue from past meetings and join us at 13224 E. 166TH St. as members of the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station/Community Safety Center will offer an in-depth presentation on crime in Cerritos. The major topics will be residential burglary prevention and neighborhood vigilance along with the current status of school safety in Cerritos. Plan on being there as we look forward to seeing you and answering any questions you may have.

One suspect is in custody after a home burglary took place last Tuesday afternoon near Rose Street and Stark Avenue in Cerritos. According to Cerritos Sheriff’s Watch Commander George Beruman, the suspect was taken into custody at or near the scene of the burglary and that the items that were involved in the crime were recovered at the scene. Kennedy Elementary School in Cerritos was placed on temporary lockdown. A spokeswoman for the ABC Unified School District confirmed that the popular campus locked down as a “precaution.” Commander Beruman told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper that “possible additional suspects” may be involved in the case. “We are still actively investigating this situation,” Beruman said. The name of the suspect arrest has not been released. “We are in the early stages of processing the suspect and will not comment on his identity,” he said.

These kindergarten through grade 12 standards provide a progression of knowledge and skills that prepare students to graduate from high school and be ready for college and careers.

The Vernola’s: Norwalk’s New ‘First Lady’ Salutes Her Husband

uring last Tuesday’s emotional Mayoral Transition at Norwalk City Hall, dozens of people took to the podium to congratulate reelected councilmembers Mike Mendez and Cheri Kelley. But the nights most emotional, and uplifting tribute came from Joan Vernola, the wife of newly appointed Mayor Luigi Vernola. With her grandchildren at her side, Mrs. Vernola was the last in a long line of speakers to take to the crystal clear

podium to officially recognize and honor her husband on being named the city’s top elected official. “Luigi’s parents came here from Italy to give their family a chance of a better life. They wanted them all to receive an education and to have a chance to be what they want to be. I’m sure they are looking down with pride on their son on this auspicious evening,” Mrs. Vernola said. “Luigi is a true American. When he says the Pledge he stands straight and always ends it with Amen, thanking this great country for all it gives to its citi-

should begin by saying Savion Glover is a once in a lifetime artist who has taken a humble art form and elevated it to the levels of opera or ballet. The art of tap-dancing will never be the same and hopefully this man’s greatness and genius will lead us to many more who aspire to take this form of dance to such inspired heights. I should follow by saying his concert at the packed Performing Arts Center a few days back will go down as one of the truly great shows there, no matter what follows in the years to come. Lastly in this triumvirate of awe is that I sure hope we can get him back here again next year. Glover dances like most of us breathe… in and out; as natural as a basic function of life. There seems to be a path between his boundless imagination and his body, especially his legs and feet that operates like an electrical current that he can dial up and down at will. What places him right at the top with the great tap-dancers of the past is that he does not need musical accompaniment since he makes music with his feet that is unique and improvised in a daz-

zling variety. While his show gave tribute to these greats of the genre (and they were greats!) he paid them the ultimate compliment by surpassing all of them and knocking the bar a quantum leap upwards. On a purely physical level, the unreal stamina shown in the performance could be compared to a running back gaining 320 yards on a muddy football field in December or maybe pitching a sixteen inning no-hitter in Houston in August. Even as the focus was on the sounds of tap shoes on the small elevated platform you cannot help making musical comparisons since Savion Glover expresses his themes with a jazz feeling that is wonderful and often transcendent. Sometimes he reminded us of Keith Jarret’s great solo

Area Students Play Surgeon With New Robot at Tri-City Regional Medical Center

S

tudents from local area high schools got a hand's on experience with the future of surgery, thanks to Dr. Shyam Dahiya of Tri-City Regional Medical Center, who gave them an introduction to the newly acquired da Vinci surgical robot system. Dr. Dahiya invited the students into the operating room to experience how the robotic technology is transforming traditional surgery. Students were able to control the robot on a simulator (not a real patient) and gain experience about how the new robotic technology improves surgical outcomes. The students were from St. Joseph High School in Lakewood, St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower and Cerritos High School. "It was better than I even imagined," said Chelsea Megan Barcenas, 16, a junior at St. Joseph High School. "It's the future of medicine and surgery and I plan to study biomedical engineering, so this was very

Dr. Dahiya, who serves as Chief of Surgery at Tri-City Regional Hospital, said he wanted to share the advanced surgical technology with students as a way to get them excited about a career in medicine and surgery. "Robotic surgery is the technology of the future and it requires skills that are in line with today's youth who play video games and can interact with technology so effortlessly. It's our way of preparing today's students for tomorrow's job skills and there is no better hook than a robot. It was exciting for me as a surgeon to teach young students who have an interest in science. I hope some become surgeons in our communities in the coming years." Tri-City Regional Medical Center is the only hospital in the community with the advanced da Vinci surgical robot, Dr. Dahiya said. it was like a gifted pianist with the left and right feet independent in melody but together in harmony.

Mrs. Vernola continued. “Part of the song states ‘If tomorrow all things were gone I’d worked for all my life, and if I had to start again, with just my children and my wife, I’d thank my lucky stars, to be living here today, cause the flag stands for freedom and they can’t take that away. And, I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free, and I won’t forget the men (and women) who died, who gave this right to me. And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today. ‘Cause there ain’t no doubt about it, I love this land, God Bless the USA,” Joan said as she recited part of the iconic Lee Greenwood anthem that has become part of the patchwork of modern American history. The new First Lady of Norwalk then

had her grandchildren unfold a handmade quilt that she stitched for her husband. “This quilt displays the America that we all love…the center is the fireworks that we shoot off every 4th of July representing our beginnings, and the flags around the border of course are the flags that we displayed all over this great country, and I’d like to draw your attention to the back which is filled with the stars that cover our night skies and is reflected on our flag as representing the 50 states, but even more the star is a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial,” she said. Mayor Vernola then accepted the quilt and reached out and gave his wife and grandchildren a long, tight hug.

He served terms as mayor in 2004-2005 and 2009-2010, and served as vice mayor in 2003-2004 and 2008-2009. “I want to thank my city council colleagues for this opportunity to once again serve them and serve the residents of Lakewood as mayor. I’m very honored by the trust you’ve placed in me,” Croft said after being named Mayor. Croft also talked openly about how city officials dealt with the passing of former city councilman Larry Van Nostran as well as Bruce DuBois, the husband of Councilmember Diane DuBois. “Diane had a challenging year to be mayor, personally and professionally, with the loss of her husband Bruce and with the loss of our council colleague Larry Van Nostran,” Croft said. “Through all those difficult times, Diane carried on with great poise and dignity, and continued to be a great representative and leader for Lakewood and someone we could all be proud of as our mayor. Diane, on behalf of the people of Lakewood, thank you for your tremendous service this past year,” Croft continued. “We had a big loss on the council last year with the passing of Larry Van Nostran. Larry was a historic figure for Lakewood in so many ways, having helped our city through some very challenging times over the years and being a valuable source of institutional knowledge and wisdom on the council. We are honored to have Larry’s wife Charlene here in the audience with us this evening, and I know that Larry is with us in spirit, making sure we are all doing our best for the city he loved,” Croft remarked. “We went through the difficult but necessary task of deciding how to fill Larry’s vacant seat, and we were fortunate to have many very qualified Lakewood residents to choose from for an appointment. I think we made an excellent choice, and I’m very pleased that we now have Ron Piazza with us. Ron, I look forward to starting our first full year of a council term together,” Croft continued. Piazza is an iconic businessman in the region who is the owner of a chain of successful McDonalds Restuarants. “Clearly, Lakewood is a good place to do business, and a good, safe place to live and raise our families,” Croft said. “And we want to keep it that way.”

GUERRA

Continued from page 1 Faith has catapulted him into the record books as being the only “elected official” in California who is a member of the Roman Catholic Clergy. His path is like many Americans. Guerra came to the United States from Cuba at the age of 6 back in the mid 1960’s. Guerra hit the books and after graduating from high school, went on to college to major in Economics. He then co-founded Scanlon-Guerra-Burke Insurance Brokers and today is now the President of the firm. The ambitious community leader set his sights on a seat on the Downey City Council and was elected in November 2006 with 64% of the vote. “It was an amazing feeling to know that the community believed that I had the ability to serve and allow me to give back,” Guerra said. He was re-elected in November 2010 and has since served as the city’s mayor on two occasions, in 2008-09 and as well as 2012-13. Guerra has become somewhat of a local political rock star and has named the “Non-Partisan Elected Official of the Year for Los Angeles County.” “I have my priorities down pat. My family, my faith, and my community mean everything to me. Life is about giving unselfish service, and in these tough times all of us need to show more compassion for our neighbors,” Guerra said. Guerra loves being on the Downey City Council, and talks glowingly about “all the good things that we have done, together as a community.” “I look at religion and serving as an elected official as being the same thing, it is about serving the community,” he pointed out. But, his path in life was also filled with tragedy and grief, and he even left the Catholic Church all together at one point in his life. “I left the Catholic Church for many years. My brother was killed in a plane crash along with my uncle and two cousins after they left the Long Beach Airport. I was going to be the co-pilot with him on that horrific day back on June 9, 1979,” Guerra said. “They took off from Long Beach Airport and were going to Catalina Island and I couldn’t go that day because I was a little league coach. They had mechanical problems and tried to land on the Long Beach Freeway and he pulled up at the last minute to miss a couple of Long Beach Press Telegram Reporters. All of them perished that day,” Guerra recalled. “I was obviously very angry at God and I took it out on my Faith and I left the church for a long time. Ironically, it was my aunt who lost her husband and two kids who brought me

CHURCH and POLITICS When asked what is more challenging, church politics or city politics, Guerra chuckled. “It depends. Sometimes our Church can be very human. In city politics you can’t please everyone. At least with the church, most people know your heart is in the right place and you’re doing something for the right reason. “Our Church can be very human. City politics you can’t please everyone. We come with servant hands and loving hearts here to St. Linus and the community,” Guerra said. “Sometimes some of my fellow city council members in Downey have come to me asking for spiritual guidance. They realize it is a different calling that I have. I baptized one of my fellow city councilmembers children two years ago, and have been Chaplin for the Downey Police Department for well over ten years,” Guerra commented. “I have been on many late night and middle of the night calls with family members when their loved one has been murdered. To me, being a mayor and a member of the clergy has never been a conflict,” Guerra said. Guerra also pointed out that all five city councilmembers on the current Downey City Council are “devout” Catholics. Guerra also said that he has his “detractors” in the Downey community. “Some residents who get angry at me call me names and throw things in my face, you know, some unfair shots. But I asked for this when I decided to run for public office,” he said. As his new chapter begins to be written at St. Linus, his days as an elected official will be winding down in 2014 due to Downey’s strict term limit policy. “I am fine serving only two terms. We get a stipend of $743 a month to be on the Downey City Council, and that is the way it should be in my opinion,” Guerra said. “We don’t get medical insurance, or a retirement, no perks, no credit cards.” STRENGTH IN FAMILY Mario, his wife Ann, and their five children have made Downey their home for over 30 years. His children are Mario Lewis Guerra, 33, Lynne Guerra Jackson, 32, Matthew 23, Haley 20, and his youngest is Ryan, age 13 “My family is everything to me,” Guerra said. Last month Ryan was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes, and they have all rallied together in “solid support” of the youngest sibling. “Ryan is going to be a freshman at St. John Bosco next year and has big plans to play basketball and sports there. We are working through this situation, together as a family,” the Mayor said of his son. “Trust me; we have the Faith, and the strength to tackle anything.” continue to be enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of patrons.

ARZATE’S PITCHING, JOHN GLENN’S SMALL BALL PAVE THE WAY FOR FIVE INNING ROUT By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

A

s the John Glenn baseball team was enjoying its bye week from Suburban League action, it gave head coach Jack Brooks time scout Cerritos. In fact, Brooks saw the Dons play three times this season before the two met this past Tuesday in the second week of league action. The scouting paid off as the visiting Eagles, behind senior ace Cesar Arzate, posted their first shutout of the season in a 13-0 rout. Arzate yielded one hit and struck out eight of the 17 batters he faced in the five-inning shortened game. “It’s good to get the first [league] win.” Brooks said. “Cerritos is a good ball club. I like their lefty; he’s only a sophomore. I was nervous coming into the game. I thought he was going to give us some trouble. But our guys did a good job of executing what we talked about.” It was the third straight blowout league loss for Cerritos (2-8 overall, 0-3 in league), which has been outscored 45-1 over the past seven days. “Some of our guys are making errors and once one error comes, the domino effect comes in,” said Cerritos head coach Chris Aquino. “For today’s game I had three players not play for disciplinary reasons and they are three starters who are pretty big in our lineup defensively.” Cerritos made six errors against Glenn with the first coming in the top of the first inning as it was hoping to turn an inningending double play. Instead, Glenn loaded the bases with one out and senior third baseman Rene Gaytan’s sacrifice bunt in front of the pitcher’s mound began the scoring for the Eagles. Senior left fielder Ryan Rodriguez then drove in a pair of runs with a base hit to left field to make it 4-0. Nine batters came to the plate and

Mayfair Takes Advantage of Norwalk Errors In Final Two Innings, Sweep Season Series SUBURBAN LEAGUE SOFTBALL By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

ith so much talk being centered on the Cerritos, Mayfair and La Mirada softball teams in the past, Norwalk has jumped into that conversation this season and was hoping to rebound from a shutout loss to Mayfair in the Suburban League opener. But the Lady Lancers yielded 10 runs and 10 hits over the final two innings last Friday and were blasted by the Monsoons 16-4 in a game that lasted nearly three hours. After losing 6-0 two days earlier to open league action, the Lady Lancers found themselves trailing 6-0 again after four innings. But they scratched across one run in the bottom of the fourth and three more in the fifth to make it interesting. Then the Mayfair bats came alive and did a number on freshman pitcher Serena

Nicolas (five runs, five hits in two innings) and junior pitcher Amanda Benas (five runs, six hits in one inning). All five runs in the sixth were with two outs. “I don’t know what to say,” said Norwalk first-year head coach Antonio Aguirre. “We just keep beating ourselves and making mistakes we shouldn’t be making. There’s not a whole lot I can say there. We got back right in the game at 6-4, and then we made the miscues. We made the miscues at the beginning but recovered and then we went right back and made the miscues.” “We’re a team that can come out and swing the bat,” said Mayfair head coach Erin Brown. “That’s for sure. They will come out and swing the bat, and they want to hit. That’s a great feeling.” The two out rally was even working for Mayfair early as it scored a pair of two-out unearned runs in the top of the first when Mayfair third baseman Tyler Johnson reached on Norwalk’s second error of the inning. In the next inning, second base-

he pressure of being the defending Olympic League champions hasn’t gotten to the Valley Christian baseball team, yet. And there didn’t seem to be a hangover of losing to Heritage Christian by three runs on Mar. 22 despite pounding out a season-high 16 hits. At least those two factors, in the eyes of head coach Sean Buller, are not why the Crusaders fell to Whittier Christian 8-2 this past Tuesday night in the first home game under the lights. V.C. had a plethora of chances to move runners over and score more than the two runs it left on the scoreboard. In contrast, the Heralds made the most of their opportunities even though they stranded eight runners. “That’s a problem that we have,” Buller said. “When we get base runners on, we run and we score. When we can’t get base runners on we can’t steal bases. That’s a

serious issue.” The hosts (3-8 overall, 2-2 in the league) struck first as senior catcher Tyler McLurg doubled with two outs in the bottom of the first and came home on senior first baseman Clayton Granch’s double one pitch later. After Whittier Christian tied the game in the second, V.C. regained the lead as junior center fielder Aaron Kirchner beat out an infield hit and came home on a two-out single from sophomore second baseman Nathan O’Toole. But after junior left fielder Cody McKittrick singled to put O’Toole in scoring position, senior shortstop Patrick Avila struck out and the Crusaders would be held hitless the rest of the way. The Heralds tied the game in the third and took the lead for good in the fourth. It wasn’t until the sixth that they added two runs to put the game away at that point, 5-2. But again, V.C. had three minor threats in the middle innings. In the third with

BASEBALL

Continued from page 11 when the inning had finished, Glenn (7-4, 1-0) was comfortably ahead 5-0. The Eagles added two more runs in the next inning without the benefit of a hit.

Two errors, a walk and three stolen bases led to a run. Then sophomore shortstop Luis Rosas grounded out to bring in senior catcher Arturo Loera and make it a 7-0 affair. All seven runs were unearned and when the game finished, only one run was earned. Glenn only got half a dozen hits off of sophomore starter Jacob Carter and junior Steven Chial. But Glenn was successful in manufacturing most of the runs, just like the team did throughout most of last season. “That’s us; there’s no hiding it,” Brooks said. “We’re going to play the manufacture game, the small ball game. We’re not going to hit a ton of extra base hits.” While the offense was having a fairly easy time at the expense of the Cerritos defense, Arzate was breezing through the Dons lineup. He was throwing a no-hitter until senior catcher Jake Liang’s two-out single in the fourth inning. Arzate walked one and did not allow a runner to get to second. Only three hitters reached base off of Arzate. “He’s 5-1 and…not enough people know about him,” Brooks said. “I think he’s one of the better pitchers in the area. I

know he doesn’t light up the radar gun like I think you have to for everybody to notice you. But as a pitcher who can throw three pitches for strikes and work both sides of the plate, I think he’s one of the best guys in the area.” Senior right fielder Deven Galindo went two for three and Brooks was able to empty his bench as 16 players had at least one plate appearance. Both teams wrapped up the home and home series on Mar. 28. Glenn will host Baldwin Park on Saturday, San Jacinto on Monday and Cabrillo on Tuesday as part of the St, Paul Tournament. Cerritos will also participate in the St. Paul Tournament and will play Oak Park on Monday and Ontario Christian on Tuesday. “I just keep telling them never to quit and to keep going,” Aquino said. “Just keep playing the game right and it will come to you. Hopefully we’ll be rewarded one day if we keep playing the ball right and the wins will come.”

SOFTBALL

Continued from page 11 man Lexie Shue’s two-out single brought home Bobbie Amezcua, who had earlier reached on the third of five Norwalk errors in the game. In the third, again with two outs, designated player Nia Rodman singled, stole second and scored on a base hit from catcher Sarah Parten. Mayfair’s lead increased to 6-0 in the fourth as right fielder Jessica Torrez and shortstop Ashlee Snyder scored on pitcher Nyah Rodman’s two-out triple to right field. The Lady Lancers finally woke up in their half of the fourth when sophomore pitcher Destiny Vasquez was hit by a pitch and eventually scored on an error. In the next inning, Nicolas singled to center and with two outs, freshman right fielder Kathleen Perez was hit by a pitch. Vasquez would then reach on an error before senior catcher Crystal Cano followed with a double just inside the third base line, plating Nicolas and Perez. Vasquez scored Norwalk’s last run on the fourth Mayfair error.

But it was too little, too late as Mayfair went to town after Vasquez left the game having thrown 93 pitches through four innings. In the top of the sixth with two outs, Shue, Snyder, Nyah Rodman had successive hits before Nicolas walked Johnson. Three of the five runs in the frame were unearned. “We’ve been struggling with that a little bit,” Brown said of two-out hits. “We’ve been in some big games where we’ve left two runners on, three runners on time and time again. This is something again we’ve been working on in practice. It’s starting to carry over and they’re not rolling over with two outs.” Both Rodman sisters as well as Shue collected three hits and eight of the nine Mayfair starters had at least one hit. Nyah Rodman went the distance, scattering half a dozen hits and striking out three. This was Mayfair’s fifth straight win over Norwalk and eighth in the last nine meetings. “I wasn’t worried about a letdown,” Brown said. “But what we’ve been telling them from the minute our first game [with Norwalk] ended on Wednesday was that Norwalk is a good team and they’re going to come in and it’s going to be hard to beat them on their field.” “It was tough,” Aguirre said. “We’re hoping to bounce back. We’ll be back. We played them better the second time than we did the first time.” Cano was three for four as Norwalk (5-5 overall, 0-2 in league) split a pair of Whittier Tournament games last Saturday and posted a 14-3 victory over Downey Calvary Chapel this past Tuesday. The team doesn’t resume league action until Apr. 10 when it hosts defending league champs La Mirada, which has won six straight over the Lady Lancers and 25 in the last 28 meetings. “Being the first-year coach here…it’s tough going against some of these schools that we haven’t seen before that we know are quality schools like Mayfair and La Mirada,” Aguirre said. “Cerritos is pretty good too. It’s tough to get in there but you have to start somewhere. We just have to focus and bounce back against La Mirada in two weeks.”

SCAM TARGETS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON CUSTOMERS Southern California Edison (SCE) is advising customers to be aware of a new telephone scam that is demanding immediate payment for allegedly past due electricity bills. Imposters have been calling SCE customers telling them they must make immediate payment on past due bills or have their electric service disconnected. The callers are also demanding that payment be made through a prepaid cash card, such as a PayPal or Green Dot card. “We ask our customers to be alert to these calls that demand immediate payment and threaten service disconnection,” said Henry Martinez, SCE vice president of Safety, Security & Compliance. “Customers suspecting a fraudulent call should ask for the caller’s name, department and business phone number. If the caller refuses to provide this information, customers should terminate the call and report the incident immediately to local police or SCE at 800-655-4555.” SCE also reminds customers to ask for identification when a stranger comes to the door or calls claiming to be a utility worker. SCE NOTICE OF TRUSTEE'S SALE T.S. No. 10-31938-EM-CAYOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED 11/21/2006. 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. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, (cashier's check(s) must be made payable to National Default Servicing Corporation), drawn on 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; will be held by the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below. The 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 the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. Trustor: MICHAEL L. WRIGHT AND EBONY N. WRIGHT, HUSBAND AND WIFE AS JOINT TENANTS Duly Appointed Trustee: NATIONAL DEFAULT SERVICING CORPORATION Recorded 12/01/2006 as Instrument No. 06 2671629 (or Book, Page) of the Official Records of LOS ANGELES County, California. Date of Sale: 04/04/2013 at 11:00 a.m. Place of Sale: By the fountain located at 400 Civic Center Plaza, Pomona, CA 91766 Estimated amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $973,974.14 Street Address or other common designation of real property: 19525 NORMANDALE AVE, CERRITOS, CA 90703 A.P.N.: 7055-005-002 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of 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. The undersigned mortgagee, beneficiary or authorized agent for the mortgagee or beneficiary pursuant to California Civil Code Section 2923.5(b) declares that the mortgagee, beneficiary or the mortgagee's or beneficiary's authorized agent has either contacted the borrower or tried with due diligence to contact the borrower as required by California Civil Code 2923.5. 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 714-730-2727 or visit this Internet Web site www.ndscorp.com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case 10-31938-EM-CA. 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.

utility workers will provide verification, including their department and phone number, when asked. In most cases, home visits by SCE are scheduled by the customer and SCE will confirm the appointment in writing. If there are any concerns, SCE and law enforcement officials suggest having the utility worker wait outside until their identity can be verified. SCE customers should also note that: An SCE employee will never ask for money in person. Never reveal your credit card, ATM or calling card numbers (or PIN numbers) to anyone. If someone calls and requests you leave your residence at a specific time for a utility-related cause, call the police. This could be a burglary set up by the caller. Be suspicious of anyone who arrives at your house without an appointment asking to check an appliance, wiring, or suggesting that there may be some other electrical problem inside your residence For more ways customers can stay safe, please see www.sce.com/safety and read the safety tips section.

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 (714)730-2727 or visit the Internet Web Site WWW.LPSASAP.COM using the file number assigned to this case 1372950-31. 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. FOR SALES INFORMATION: (714)730-2727 CAL-WESTERN RECONVEYANCE CORPORATION 525 EAST MAIN STREET P.O.
