While working in that factory, Walgreen accidentally cut off the top joint of his middle finger, ending his athletic dreams. Were it not for the accident, Walgreen might never have become a pharmacist, business owner and phenomenally successful entrepreneur. And the Walgreens in La Mirada might not have ever come to frui-

More than 50 visitors toured La Mirada’s Historic Neff Estate on April 14, learning about the City’s rich history and life in Southern California during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The tour, provided by members of the La Mirada Historical Preservation Advisory Council, offered visitors the opportunity to step back in time and learn about La Mirada’s famous historical resident Andrew McNally. Mr. McNally was the founder and president of Rand McNally Publishing Company, and in 1888 he purchased 2,300 acres of California rangeland in present-day La Mirada.

Barrows, Chen, Ray Double Standard By Brian Hews publisher@cerritosnews.net

hen Mayor Barrows, Councilwoman Carol Chen and Councilman George Ray voted to remove Brian Hews Frank Yokoyama from Publisher his Planning Commissioner seat, all three cited Mr. Yokoyama’s State Bar of California transgression as published in this paper two

months ago. Yokoyama was suspended by the California State Bar from practicing law after he was cited for several violations on January 7, 2012 by Judge Richard A. Platel of the California State Bar Court. Yokoyama told State Bar officials that he “was in compliance with the MCLE requirements,� when in fact he had not complied with any MCLE courses within the compliance period.� Contrary to what Barrows and Chen said at a public Council meeting, Yokoyama took the test, paid a fine and was reinstated by the State Bar. “This (the suspension) is the reason we are not reaffirming the appointment of Mr. Frank Yokoyama,� said Councilwoman Carol Chen. But, a closer inspection of Cerritos commissioners shows a clear double-standard existing on the Cerritos Council between Barrows, Chen, and Ray. Cyndi Yen Chen, a Pulido appointee was fined $79,000 in 2004 by the Federal Maritime Commission for transporting toxic chemicals. It was alleged that Zen Continental unlawfully collected forwarder compensation on shipments booked on behalf of its related NVOCC, Sunway, and failed to seek prior Commission approval of changes in the licensees’ organization and qualifying individuals. Ms. Chen compromised with the Commission, and paid the fine. With this type of resolution, Chen avoided going to court and facing possible prosecution. Sound familiar? Just like Frank Yokoyama, Ms. Chen is a commissioner and ran for council. Just like Frank Yokoyama, Ms. Chen was found culpable (on a much larger scale), and fixed the situation through a compromise. Just like Frank Yokoyama, Ms. Chen was removed from her position as commissioner. No she was not, double standard. One now must seriously question the motive behind the removal of Frank Yokoyama. Call it for what it is.

A Message from the ABC Superintendent

Lessons Learned from Sandy Hook and Columbine By Dr. Mary Sieu

E

arlier this month during our spring break, I had the privilege of spending time with two women superintendents who were thrust into the Dr. Mary Sieu national spotlight as a result of tragedies Superintendent - ABCUSD that occurred in their school districts. One was Dr. Janet Robinson, Superintendent of Newtown, Connecticut and the other was Jane Hammond, retired Superintendent of Columbine in Colorado. Both shared their extraordinary experiences of how they lead and managed their school districts through their crisis. Since the Newtown tragedy last December, we in ABCUSD were forced to look at ourselves and find where we were deficient and improve. Since then, we have beefed up our security by reviewing lockdown procedures, implemented regular drills, audited every campus and worked with law enforcement to help us refine our security measures. We required all schools to update their safe school plans and gather input with their Safe School Committee. During the Safety Walk Visitations at every school, we worked with the school to identify areas that need to be repaired or features that need to be installed in order to strengthen security. We recognize from the experiences at Sandy Hook and Columbine that there are other important components that play a great role in school safety. In addition to the physical features of a school, the four other areas that are important in ensuring school safety are: 1) Instructional programs that educate our students about conflict resolution and nonviolence; 2) Effective safety and discipline policies implemented in the schools; 3) Addressing mental health issues in the schools; 4) Working with the community to ensure school security. These are four areas that we have built capacity in over the years but recognize that there is still more work to be done. What the District will not do is arm teachers or staff as some districts in the country are considering. We feel that the emergency response should be left to trained professionals. We are very fortunate to have outstanding local law enforcement agencies partnering with us to ensure the safety of our schools throughout the

Re: ABCUSD Districts

I

would like to know why it is considered discrimination when a Latino isn’t elected to an office that no Latino ran for. You say the community is not represented  on the school board, we just had an election, where there was no Latino on the ballot, and you can’t call it unfair to your candidate when you don’t have a candidate. I do live in Cerritos and my race is not an issue, as no where in either article, last week or this week ever mention my race, only Latino and Asian, ... On my street, there are 24 houses, 8 white, 6 Latino, 6 Asian, 4 Black, Kind of a mix and the way most of Cerritos is... So what is racist about that...? Please think about the facts before you jump on the race issue. and please stop saying the election isn’t fair when you don’t even try.... I no longer care much about the schools, as my sons (who went to ABC schools) are in their 40’s but I really don’t think it’s fair to say the things you are saying about one of the best school districts in the country. Thank you, Nancy Dailey, Cerritos

Riley Misses The Point Of ABCUSD Voting Rights Lawsuit Dear Editor:

I

n my opinion, Gavin Riley missed the point of the ABCUSD lawsuit. The California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) of 2001 only dealt with At Large elections and if that system resulted in polarized voting thereby preventing protected minorities from being elected. Instead, Mr. Riley argues against the law (CVRA) itself which was signed into law by Governor Davis. He has a right to his opinion that under a “trustee� procedure the district will become the federal government in miniature� (however that is

Through his elected representatives, Mr. Riley could work to change the law that he opines will result in “a dysfunctional fraction filled board.” In the meantime, the California Education Code has in its 11 Grade Curriculum the teaching of the U.S. Voting Rights Act as well as the CVRA. These historic laws are to be found under sections dealing with citizen participation in Government. We assume that 11th Grade ABC teachers of Civic, Social and Political sciences classes have or will cover these materials with their students. I have heard that ABCUSD Board members do not want to be in violation of the law. Now would be the perfect time to settle the lawsuit ASAP and get on with what Mr Riley says should be the District’s priorities; e.g. restoring programs, ending furlough days, upgrading classroom technology, etc. Charlie Ara Cerritos Resident

while you are away. Install a Monitored Alarm System Installing an alarm system in your home is a wise investment. If there is any indication that your home contains a dog or an alarm system, a burglar will almost always bypass it and look for another. Most systems emit a high-pitched tone that can be heard as soon as a contact on a door or window is broken, or a motion detector picks up movement inside the home. Paying extra for a 24-hour monitoring service will only add increased protection.

NORWALK, LAKEWOOD, BELLFLOWER TARGETED WITH UPCOMING DUI CHECKPOINTS By Randy Economy

I

n an ongoing effort to crackdown on those who drive while “under the influence,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will be holding three key Driver’s License Checkpoints in Lakewood, Bellflower and Norwalk during the first two weeks of May. In an announcement to members of the media on Monday, motorists in the two communities will be experiencing the “checkpoints” during the three following times: On Friday, May 3rd from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. in the city of Lakewood. On Thursday, May 9th from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. in the city of Norwalk, and on Thursday, May 16 from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. in the city of Bellflower. The specific street locations where the checkpoints are going to be conducted have not been made public, just that residents and motorists in the three Southeast Los Angeles County municipalities are being targeted. Member of the LA County Sheriff’s Department want to remind residents “if you see dangerous driving, Report Drunk Drivers, by calling 9-1-1!” “All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. Alcohol impaired deaths make up the largest number of vehicle fatalities, with 31 percent of all vehicle fatalities caused by a drunk driver,” Detective Daniel Dail, Traffic Services Detail for the Risk Management Bureau told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper in a statement. “A DUI/DL checkpoint is an effective

and proven method in lowering alcohol related traffic deaths. DUI/DL checkpoints are an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well to ensure that drivers possess a valid driver’s license,” Dail said. The locations of the checkpoints will be based on DUI related activity in that area. Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. “Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs – Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest,” Dail said. “In an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, DUI checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving,” he stressed. “Saving lives, reducing injuries, traffic collisions and property damage is important work,” said Sheriff Lee Baca. “Every life is a life worth saving and we will do our utmost to help keep the public safe,” Baca said.

“All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. DUI/CDL checkpoints are an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as ensuring drivers carry a valid driver’s license. A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers or impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers,” Baca said. Statistics from the California Department of Motor Vehicles claims that DUI/ CDL checkpoints are “proven effective method for achieving this goal.” “By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and others experts believe motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving,” Dail said. Statewide, overall traffic deaths have declined 23 percent from 3,995 in 2007 to 3,081 in 2009 and total traffic fatalities are at their lowest level in six decades. DUI deaths have declined from 1,132 in 2007 to 950 in 2009, which is a decrease of over 16 percent. In case you are wondering how much it will cost a first time “offender” of a DUI, experts tell Los Cerritos Commu-

nity Newspaper that it “could cost someone anywhere between $6,000 to $10,000 when all the potential fines, fees, classes, lawyers, work days missed, and increased insurance for years to come have been factored in.” One local Cerritos resident, who did not want to be identified, told LCCN that they spent more than $12.000 for a recent “DUI arrest.” “I had no idea how much time and money it took me to just go through the legal process during my DUI arrest and citation,” the person told LCCN. “It was the most expensive mistake of my life, and I never want to go through the experience ever again,” they continued. Dail also said that “everyone can avoid getting arrested for a DUI, all they have to do is plan ahead.” He suggested that drivers who consume alcohol to arrange rides home for friends, family, co-workers and yourself before the drinking begins. Dail also urged local businesses who serve alcohol to “identify and provide free non-alcoholic drinks or other promotional items to the Designated Driver and for party hosts and servers to limit drinks to your guests or patrons. Don’t serve more than one or two over several hours,” Dail warned. It is also suggested that people “cut back on the amount of drinks you plan to bring to the party – and provide plenty of food.” Funding for these ongoing DUI Check points is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety http://www. ots.ca.gov through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration http://www. nhtsa.gov.

Clinton’s home run came with one out in the second to make it a 2-0 game. The first run was a home run to center from sophomore pitcher Melanie Okazaki to lead off the bottom of the first. Okazaki pitched a two-hitter and faced one over the minimum. Norwalk’s lone run was a home run from sophomore pitcher Destiny Vasquez. Okazaki also went three for three and drove in four runs and every Cerritos starter had at least one hit. The only other Cerritos senior is right fielder Miki Okazaki, who went one for three and scored shortly after Clinton’s home run. Cerritos (11-10 overall, 7-4 in the Suburban League), which put the game away with six runs in the fourth inning, will wrap up the regular season today at Norwalk, hop-

ing to clinch third place. In other Suburban League action, Artesia (10-15 overall, 2-7 in league) kept its very faint playoff hopes alive with a 5-4 road win over John Glenn (7-11, 0-9) this past Wednesday. Artesia continues to have its best season in over 16 years. The two teams will meet again today at Artesia. The Pioneers must win, then sweep Norwalk next week and have Norwalk lose to Cerritos today in order to get in the playoffs for the first time since 1992. Mayfair eased past Bellflower 11-1 to remain undefeated in nine league games. The Monsoons are on a collision course with idle La Mirada for the league championship next week. La Mirada is 9-1 in league action. The Mayfair and La Mirada baseball teams will also vie for the league championship next week as Mayfair’s 8-6 win over Bellflower this past Wednesday pushed the Monsoons to 9-0 while La Mirada is 9-1.

SAN GABRIEL VALLEY LEAGUE

The Gahr softball team saw its playoff dreams dashed for a fourth straight season following a 4-1 loss to Downey this past Tuesday. After the Vikings scored an unearned run in the top of the first, freshman sensation Alyssa Cuffia belted a home run down the left field line in the fourth inning. It was the center fielder’s third home run of the season and she is tied for second on the team in hitting with a .446 average. The home run was one of three hits the Gladiators got. Gahr dropped to 9-14 overall and 2-5 in the league. The team visited Dominguez on May 2 and will travel to Lynwood on Tuesday before hosting Warren on Thursday. Gahr’s baseball team will play for a league title next week in a home and home series with Warren. Following an 8-0 win over Lynwood this past Tuesday, the Gladiators improved to 17-5 overall and 10-2 in the circuit. They held a one-game lead over Paramount and Warren. Tuesday’s game will be at Gahr with Thursday’s encounter at Warren.

OLYMPIC LEAGUE

Valley Christian’s softball team moved one step closer to back to back league titles after dispatching previously unbeaten Maranatha 11-3 this past Tuesday. The Lady Crusaders (11-11-1, 5-1) scored in every inning and pounded out 13 hits. V.C. will visit third place Whittier Christian, which is one full game behind the Lady Crusaders, today before ending the regular season at home on Tuesday against Heritage Christian. V.C.’s baseball team fell to Whittier Christian 6-1 this past Tuesday to drop to 9-14 overall and 5-6 in the league. The two teams will meet tonight at V.C. before the Crusaders end the regular season with a home and home series against Cerritos, Tuesday on the road and Thursday night at home.

Norwalk Wins Battle with John Glenn, Stays Alive for Playoffs

JOHN GLENN COMES OUT FLAT IN LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP LOSS TO BELLFLOWER

SUBURBAN LEAGUE BASEBALL By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

J

By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

O

ne thing was for sure when the John Glenn boys volleyball team hosted Bellflower last Thursday. Someone was going to win its first ever Suburban League championship. In its 11-year history of fielding a boys volleyball program, Glenn has never finished higher than third place in the league but will have to settle for no worse than second as Bellflower swept the host Eagles 25-15, 25-16, 25-17, giving the Buccaneers a season sweep over Eagles. The match took on a different look just 48 hours earlier as Glenn was upset by fourth place Artesia, meaning the best Glenn could do is share the league crown with Bellflower. The four-set loss to the Pioneers definitely affected the team against the Bucs. “Mentally I think it did,” said John Glenn head coach Davion Jackson. “I think it weighed heavy on their hearts that they lost on Tuesday. We just didn’t come prepared to play.” Glenn (17-6 overall, 8-3 in league) held a slim 4-3 lead in the first set on a net serve, but a serving error opened the door for Elai Mama, who reeled off 11 straight points to give Bellflower a commanding 15-5 lead. During that run, 6’3” opposite hitter Alfredo Larranaga was a force at the net, pounding down five kills and combining on a block with Vince Madrigal. Three other points were aces from Mama. Larranaga ended the match with 17 kills. “I don’t think it was about containing him,” Jackson said. “It was more or less we couldn’t pass the ball. We couldn’t get out of serve receive, so we gave them free balls left and right in that run. We just couldn’t pass the ball.” The Eagles got to within five points (17-12) after consecutive aces from sophomore defensive specialist Diego Garcia but a flurry of errors allowed the Bucs to pull away. In the second set, the Eagles rallied from a 7-3 deficit to tie it up at 11-11. But

ust like clockwork, the John Glenn and Norwalk baseball teams lived up to the city rivalry that you would expect to see. With both clubs facing near playoff extinction, it’s only fitting that they would combine for 20 runs, 20 hits and 11 errors just two days after Norwalk won a low scoring pitching duel. A loss by Norwalk would have just about been the end of its season with two weeks remaining but the Lancers scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth and rallied for an 11-9 home victory over the Eagles last Friday to complete the season series sweep. The win allowed the Lancers to pull even with the Eagles at 2-6 in the Suburban League, one full game behind Artesia for the fourth and final automatic playoff spot entering this week. This past Tuesday, Glenn beat Artesia and Norwalk held on to beat Cerritos to force a threeway for fourth place. Now, Artesia, Glenn and Norwalk are all 3-6 in the circuit. “We had about four different internal battles that we had to get through within the seven inning game and they overcame them all,” said Norwalk first-year head coach Ruben Guerrero. “My hats off to [them] for coming out and just never giving up. They just fought through the whole game today.” After leading throughout most of the game, the Lancers were trailing 9-8 going into the bottom of the sixth. But junior third baseman Fernando De Luna was hit by a pitch and moved to second on a sacrifice from sophomore right fielder Pete Hernandez. That was followed by a single from sophomore center fielder Jacob Carr and a double from junior shortstop Trino Romero, who later scored on an error. De Luna pitched the top of the seventh and yielded just one base runner to pick up his first save of the season. When the dust had settled, the teams had played in

the highest scoring game in this rivalry since Mar. 24, 2005, a 14-6 Norwalk win. But since 2007, the winner of the GlennNorwalk game has won by four runs or less 13 times with the Lancers coming out ahead eight times. “We didn’t deserve to win,” said Glenn head coach Jack Brooks. “We made six errors, we dropped routine infield pop-ups and you can’t win games [like that].” Norwalk scored twice in the bottom of the first before the Eagles got on the board in the second when senior third baseman Rene Gaytan’s single up the middle brought home senior first baseman Cesar Arzate. Two innings later, the Eagles tied the game on a groundout from senior catcher Arturo Loera, plating sophomore shortstop Luis Rosas. But Norwalk (9-11 overall, 3-6 in league) responded with four runs in its half of the frame after sending 10 batters to the plate. The rally began with consecutive singles from Hernandez, Carr, Romero (a bunt to load the bases) and senior pitcher Miguel Castaneda. Glenn (11-12, 3-6) got to within 6-5 in the fifth on three hits and a pair of Norwalk errors. But the hosts added two runs in the bottom half of the inning to make it an 8-5 affair. The score might have been more for Norwalk had the team not stranded 11 runners including the bases loaded in the second and fourth. “We told them that when you have opportunities like that, with very few outs and bases loaded, we need to manufacture runs,” Guerrero said. “We have to cash in on those. We cannot leave that many base runners on.” “I’m really proud of our kids that they battled back,” Brooks said. “I’m really proud of their effort. I’m proud of the way they competed. But to be honest, we had some help from Norwalk.” Glenn sophomore pitcher Victor Sanchez went two for four, scored twice and was in a zone early in the game. Through the first three innings, Sanchez got ahead in the count 10 times and was ahead 0-2 three other times. But senior Deven Gal-

Global Thoughts Become Local Concerns For PHL-U.S. Community By Rico Dizon The Mutual Defense Treaty between the United States and the Philippines signed in 1951 obligates each party to defend the other in the event of war or hostility with another country. With the current threat of North Korea to launch ballistic missiles against the U.S. hanging like the proverbial Damocles sword, the Philippines, by virtue of the MDT, would readily come to the aid of its close ally, in addition to South Korea and Japan, when the need arises. But as “PINAS” columnist Perry Diaz said, “How can the Philippines whose armed forces mostly consist of a poorlyequipped army, an Air Force with vintage helicopters, and a Navy with coast guard cutters, help the U.S.?” A laughing matter? Not quite. The

Philippines has the strategically-located former U.S. Subic Naval Base in Olongapo City and U.S. Clark Air Base in Angeles City, both situated in the country’s Central Luzon Region, still almost in tact. “The U.S. needs forward operating bases, logistical and supply centers whose proximity to the war zone would help the former move her forces a lot faster,” as Diaz con-

vincingly answered his own query. This topic comes in the heels of the closing of the joint PhilippineUnited States “Balikatan” exercise on April 17 this year. U.S. Embassy Deputy Chief of Missions in the Philippines Brian Goldbeck said, “We know that you will come to our aid as well,” as he thanked Philippine Foreign Secretary Albert Del Rosario following the latter’s assurance of support, “We remain with you not just with the annual military exercise but whenever our partnership is needed.” The possible reuse of the former U.S. Subic Naval Base and Clark Air Base in the Philippines faces a very challenging issue: the 1987 Philippine Constitution that prohibits the use of foreign bases in Philippine soil. Likewise, on Sept.16, 1991, the

Philippine Senate voted 12-11 to reject a new treaty that would have allowed Subic Naval Base for another 10 years. China’s encroachment on certain territories in the disputed West Philippine Sea two years after the end of U.S. presence in the country in 1991 has created a second issue: a growing furor among many Filipinos urging Congress to call for a national referendum abolishing the provision in the constitution that prohibits the use of foreign bases in Philippine soil. More than ever, the Philippine needs his strong ally to help defend her shores against the militarily-strong provocative neighbor. Thus “PINAS” columnist Diaz aptly put it, “Our leaders must realize that they can’t have both ways. It’s either they allow American bases to return, or abrogate the Mutual Defense Treaty. They can’t have their cake and eat it too.”

CRIME

Continued from page 5 Secure Doors and Windows Most residential burglaries in La Mirada are directly attributed to residents leaving doors or windows open or unlocked. This is practically an invitation for thieves. Often, a burglar breaks in at the side garage door behind the gate. Such doors are frequently unlocked, and usually not very strong. Another common point of entry is unlocked rear bedroom or bathroom windows. If the windows are locked, many burglars carry tools and will pry open sliding windows or even large sliding doors.

ees. Publisher Brian Hews and investigative reporter Randy Economy said they requested a formal investigation be opened and charges filed on behalf of Los Angeles taxpayers for "gross misuse of their positions as city employees." Los Cerritos Community Newspaper journalists claim they conducted a sixmonth investigation into Greuel's day-today activities and claim "a majority of her official city schedule has been dedicated to political activities including the solicitation of campaign donations to her Mayoral campaign," according to a letter distributed by the group. Greuel responded to questions from

an ATVN reporter about the ethics allegations Thursday and said she "knew nothing about the allegations." Hews and Economy said they plan to file their complaints with the City Ethics Commission. A request will also be filed with the District Attorney's Office Public Integrity Office to review Greuel's possible misuse of the Controller's Office for political gain. The ethics allegations come in the midst of a close mayoral runoff between Greuel and City Councilman Eric Garcetti. The latest ABC Eyewitness News poll shows Greuel has a three point lead over Garcetti. Their previous poll showed Garcetti with a nine point lead.

device that prevents the burglar from removing the sliding door or window from its track. For windows, make sure that glass break sensors are installed. If you have an alarm system (and you should), be sure that all of your window sensors are working properly before you leave home. CCTV Cameras Security cameras not only deter thieves, they also capture activity around your home while you are away. Even at night or when natural light is blocked by a tent’s presence, cameras with infrared technology will record activity at your home. Many devices even offer real-time, remote access from a computer or even a smartphone. Make Home Security a Priority Battling termites or a cockroach infes-

tation is enough stress for a homeowner to have to deal with. Adding burglars to the list of pests you have to defend against only increases the stress. But failing to consider the very real possibility of a break-in during a tented fumigation can be very costly. The La Mirada Public Safety Team asks residents to be extra vigilant and report suspicious activity around homes being fumigated. Residents having their homes fumigated should ask neighbors to help watch their properties. If people are seen working on the home after the initial tent set-up, report it immediately. To report a crime in progress, call 911. To report suspicious activity, call La Mirada Community Sheriff’s Station at (562) 902-2960.

On May 24, 2013 at 09:00 AM, behind the fountain located in Civic Center Plaza, 400 Civic Center Plaza, Pomona CA 91766, MTC FINANCIAL INC. dba TRUSTEE CORPS, as the duly Appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded on January 31, 2005 as Instrument No. 05 0219241 of official records in the Office of the Recorder of Los Angeles County, California, executed by LISBETH VELASQUEZ, A MARRIED WOMAN, AS HER SOLE AND SEPARATE PROPERTY, as Trustor(s), in favor of STEARNS LENDING, INC., A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION as Lender and MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION SYSTEMS, INC. as nominee for Lender, its successors and/or assigns, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER, in lawful money of the United States, all payable at the time of sale, that certain property situated in said County, California describing the land therein as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST The property heretofore described is being sold "as is". The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 14504 FLORITA ROAD, LA MIRADA, CA 90638 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express 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. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee`s Sale is estimated to be $397,293.87 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary`s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier`s check 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 California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee`s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. 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. 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 Priority Posting and Publishing at 714-573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee's Sale or visit the Internet Web site address on the previous page for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08000977-12-1. 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.

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 (619)5901221 or visit the internet website www.rppsales.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1377428-31. 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.
