Los Cerritos Community News investigation has revealed that Art Chacon, a Director at the Central Basin Municipal Water District in Commerce, had his life threatened by former convicted felon Ric Mayer just 24 hours prior to a controversial meeting that resulted in the firing of three top executives at the District in January of this year. In an interview with LCCN on Wednesday from his Commerce home, Chacon said that Mayer, who is the owner of Golden State Consultants and R & M Associates, and who funded Leticia

Time For Mayor Cheri Kelley To Be Defeated In Norwalk

CERRITOS Voters will pick between seven candidates in one of the hardest fought local campaigns in recent city memory. Incumbent Carol Chen is facing an aggressive field of six challengers. They include Businessman/ Attorney Frank Aurelio Yokoyama, Retired Police Officer K.Y. Ma, ABC School Board Member James Kang, Businessman George Ray, Homemaker Gerad Valencia and Retired Social Worker Alejandro Estella. Current Mayor Jim Edwards is barred from seeking reelection due to the voter-mandated term limits set more than 30 years

n Tuesday, voters in Norwalk will be asked to reelect current Mayor Cheri Kelley to another four year term. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper would like to urge our voters not to be fooled by Kelley this time around and to send her back into private life. Kelley has become part of the “furniture” at Norwalk City Hall, and has not produced one solid solution to help bring the fiscally strapped municipality out of its economic nightmare. Instead of welcoming new vibrant businesses to Norwalk, Kelley spends her time harassing and berating new developers in public who want to come and do

erritos Councilwoman Carol Chen called a press conference last week to criticize an advertisement that was published in Los Cerritos Community News. The mid-day press conference was also attended by Cerritos Mayor Jim Edwards, Mayor pro-tem Bruce Barrows and Councilman Joseph Cho. LCCN was told that several Chinese media news outlets attended, along with the Press-Telegram. Sources told LCCN that Chen called the conference under her official capacity as a Cerritos Councilwoman, calling into question Chen’s authority to do so and also calling into question whether the city of Cerritos was involved.

emailed all but one of the candidates with the following question: "Would you be in favor or against the city publishing a brief summary of the income, expenses (direct and indirect overhead incurred by the city) and operating losses over the 20 years of operation of the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts?" Gerad Valencia is completely in favor of making this information public. K.Y. Ma said that the information should be made available and claimed that it actually was. That's not really true because it's scattered through a budget document of almost 400 pages and is incomplete. However he did give permission for me to post the email exchange online. George Ray said he wouldn't be against publicizing the financials but wouldn't commit to making them public. I've had some emails back and forth with him about his reasons for supporting the CCPA and asked if I could post the emails online. For some reason he doesn't want what he told me to be made public. I haven't heard back at all from Carol Chen and Frank Yokoyama. Estella didn't provide an email address so I didn't try to contact him. It’s our city—why is only one of the candidates willing to clearly inform us of what the CCPA has been and is costing us? Ralph Westfall Cerritos

Vasquez Cronies Stirring Dirty Water

An Open Letter to Norwalk Voters

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor:

You can call me “Amigo.” n Tuesday at Central Basin Metropolitan Water District (CBMWD) I attended the board meeting in which witnessed the arrogance and egotistical attitude of Leticia Vasquez. I for one am tired of seeing her use her two face approach to “public service” and getting away with it. The water district water is getting murky but I can feel for several good employees that are being dragged in the mud and don’t deserve the negative association with some politicians whose agenda is a self-serving one. I have known Leticia Vasquez for many years with the Lynwood Unified School District and the City and have watched her manipulate and get “in bed” with not so reputable individuals in the City and School District. Since she has taken office at the CBMWB the staff has been on egg shells to her capricious self-serving request that for many years other board members didn’t harass staff for, but intimidation and manipulation is her strength. One of Leticia’s friends Jasmyne Cannick was given a contract at Leticia’s request and alone with her campaign manager Annette Ramirez who also got a job there, Annette wrote the justification for said contract. My understanding and correct me if I am wrong, aren’t their district procurements policy and procedural steps for such contracts? I live in Lynwood and a close friend of mine told me that Leticia was seen in restaurant La Huasteca doing damage control the week the article “Dirty Water” came out. Her campaign was to stop cronyism, yet wasted no time in giving jobs to her friends! Amigo Submitted Via Fax

et me tell you about my neighbor — the one who lives next door to me. He, like most all of us, is active, busy, and though he does not have enough time for himself, he has plenty of time for us and the other residents of Norwalk. The neighbor I am referring to is Enrique Aranda. Enrique watches my house when we are out, as I watch his, and as you would expect a neighbor to do for you. Enrique’s qualities are reflected in his chosen profession. He works in a business based on trust and in helping others – one that all can listen to and one that all are able to develop and understand the goals and visions of the community. These skills are essential to successfully move our city forward. I do not expect miracles from him regarding our city, though I know and trust he will be there hand-in-hand with me and those of us who believe in Norwalk. Several times a week I run into Enrique as he walks his dog Chomsky and it is often during this time that we talk about issues plaguing our City and how, as a community, we can do better than this. From the homeless man that was set on fire just days before Christmas, the rash of violence and shootings this past year, to the constant closing of small businesses in our community, to our Mayor constantly blaming Sacramento - we can all agree that we need an innovative problem solver at City Hall. As an example of leadership, Enrique promotes joint-use agreements and has pledged to find adequate green space so our Girl’s Softball League can finally have a dedicated field they can call “home”. Norwalk holds great opportunity when people listen and act to build toward solutions through common sense and goodwill. What is best for Norwalk’s future as we decide on the composition of our City Council on March 5th? I support Enrique Aranda #1 on the ballot. Pete Perez

"Women of Ireland": BECOME WOMEN OF CERRITOS By Glen Creason As St. Paddy’s day looms, Cerritos has taken on a definite green hue as of late and Saturday’s “Women of Ireland” show was more of the musical forty shades. On the tapping heels of “Rhythm of the Dance” this “Women of Ireland” show offered another grand scale, grand celebration of Celtic pride and a glorification of the Emerald Isle’s dance and song. The concert brought much more color than green, including an entire stage-full or beautiful women and fine looking men along with some amazing musicianship that spared no showman (or woman) ship. At the center

is the dazzlingly gorgeous trio of O’Neill sisters (Fiona, Naomi, Evangeline) from Kerry who sang well alone and even better together, such contemporary songs as “Marie’s Wedding,” “Carolina Rua,” “Where the Blarney Roses Grow” along with the lively “Red Haired Mary” that well pleased the decidedly enthusiastic crowd. The love-

ly ladies changed from one fine gown to another and while their voices were high and sweet on songs like “the Green Fields of France,” “There for Me” or “Imagine” it was hard not to get lost in the enchantment of the O’Neill’s pulchritude. Yet, some of the finest moments on this night came from the little, scene-stealing

fiddler Niamh Gallagher who not only raised the temperature of the concert hall whenever she put bow to fiddle as her joyful countenance was infectiously delightful to fellow performers and audience. Likewise, fueling the fun were the excellent small band of drums, whistle/bodhran, guitar, pipes/saxophone, the terrific keyboards of Cian Boylan and the amazingly invigorating accordion of Kevin Jones. Both gents were brilliant throughout along with Dan the drummer man. That is in no way to slight the absolutely marvelous dancing of the supremely confident (for good reason) Kelly McDonnell, her unfairly unidentified male counterpart and the two young ladies who exploded onto the stage like flying pixies, lighting up every number they joined and causing great gushes of applause from the balcony. When the evening concluded I could only repeat “slainte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mna go deo” (health to the men and may the women live forever!”)

YOUR FAVORITE ENTERTAINERS, YOUR FAVORITE THEATER

First Time Cerritos City Council Hopeful Gerard Valencia Shines During Campaign “It's not easy to run a campaign on $532.87 but it was a challenge I was willing to take on.” – Gerard Valencia, Candidate For Cerritos City Council By Randy Economy Gerard Valencia is new to Cerritos politics, but you would never know if by the way the first time candidate has been performing on the campaign trail these past four months. Valencia is a fresh face in this year’s heated Cerritos City Council campaign that most longtime observers equate to a game of “tackle football, without wearing pads.” Valencia may not get elected next week, his campaign is spending less than $600.00 compared to his opposition that will spend more than $500,000 combined when all the final campaign receipts are tallied. Nonetheless, Valencia has been impressive in his first bid for public office and when you ask him why he is running against the long odds, he told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper that “the simple answer is to make a difference, but that answer is so cliché.” “How many politicians actually make a difference during their term? What makes you different if you follow the same old format when running for office? Finding money to back you is pretty easy if you're willing to take on a special interest cause,” Valencia said. The married “stays at home dad” has not been a wall flower during this campaign season’s televised debates, and isn’t intimidated by the process of running for elected office. “I did not want to go the traditional route while running my campaign. I have

sought no endorsements or monetary contributions. I'm not a politician. I am a typical resident who is willing to tell the truth. I am not afraid to tell the truth for fear of job security,” Valencia said. “My intention was never to win for the sake of winning. Instead, I want the community to prosper by someone who actually stands by solid beliefs and makes sound judgments,” he candidly told LCCN. “We have the most amazing freedoms in this country. One freedom I am unwilling to sacrifice in this campaign is my freedom to speak freely. I have the liberty to say what I believe because I don't fear someone else taking away my campaign funds for doing so,” Valencia said. To date he points out that he has spent a “meager $532.87.” “Some of my opponents have spent nearly 100 times that amount for their campaigns. It's not easy to run a campaign on $532.87 but it was a challenge I was willing to take on, Valencia said. “I learned at a young age to be selfsufficient. I have what it takes to do my own campaign research, my own website, and my own responses. My responses have real substance. I’m not a mouthful of catch phrases like some of my opponents. I hope your readers can take the time to view the public forum videos of the candidates before they vote,” Valencia said. He has “backed up” his grassroots effort by producing a couple of hard hitting videos that appear on his website www. GeradValencia.org. “The residents of Cerritos have energetically fueled my campaign. The residents of Cerritos are the reason we candidates are supposed to run,” he quipped. “I'm on the side of the everyday Cerritos resident because I am one. Pride in my city is my benefit for securing a spot on the Cerritos City Council. My children call Cerritos home. It’s my motivation to have them continually call Cerritos home,” Valencia said.

ENRIQUE ARANDA TAKES CITY COUNCIL CAMPAIGN TO NORWALK VOTERS, DOOR BY DOOR By Randy Economy Enrique Aranda has been pounding the pavement in Norwalk for months in hopes of being able to convince voters that he has the right stuff to get elected in next week’s heated Norwalk City Council election. Some consider Aranda as a “political outsider,” but he likes to tell voters and friends that Norwalk is his “hometown” where “he was raised” and where he wants to raise his new child that is expected to arrive later this Summer. “I am homegrown. I graduated from Norwalk High School and Cerritos Community College,” Aranda said. He earned his B.A. at UC Berkeley and recently an MBA and has also completed graduate coursework in Urban Planning and has been active in advocating for environmental conservation and smart growth. During a series of debates between the candidates, it was Aranda whose booming voice stands out in the compact field of candidates that includes challenger Candy Martinez and Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District Board of Education Member Daryl Adams and incumbent city

Enrique Aranda councilmembers Cheri Kelley and Mike Mendez. His life partner is Dr. Sandra Salazar, MD who also scored a huge political upset last November when she clobbered incumbent Tina Cho to win a seat on the Cerritos College Board of Trustee. “No one gave Sandra much of a chance of winning, but the voters and people of Norwalk realized that Cerritos College

needed to change and well, now Cerritos College is indeed headed into a new era,” Aranda told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper. His main rival, incumbent Mayor Cheri Kelley has tried to cast Aranda as being a “outsider politician” who is “looking to run for higher office after being elected to the Norwalk City Council.” “I have no intentions of running for any higher office, period. Sandra and I are looking forward to raising our child here in Norwalk,” Aranda. “Norwalk is still has a small town atmosphere, and it is hard to keep secrets from one and other,” Aranda said. Aranda and Salazar are expecting the birth of their first child later this year. “Sandra and I are blessed to have each other and even more fortunate to be able to give back to the community we both love so very much,” Aranda said. Aranda tells LCCN that he is “supportive” of incumbent City Councilman Mike Mendez, but will let the voters be the final judge on who should guide the city of nearly 110,000 residents for the next four years. “I am working hard on this campaign. Nothing is ever guaranteed in life. You

have to work hard, and have to be open and honest with the voters. Being a public servant is about trust, and being able to make bold, hard decisions that affect the lives of tens of thousands of people who are in Norwalk each and every day,” Aranda said. Aranda is known for his experience in community and economic development, creating public private partnerships and for a steadfast commitment to community and public service. Aranda is Director of Marketing and Development for a Private School Consortium and a small business owner of New Economy Strategies in Norwalk where he is a member of the Chamber of Commerce. “We need to stop talking about how to rebuild Norwalk and just get the job done once and for all,” Aranda said. “I strongly feel that Norwalk is ready to embrace a new spirit of working together as a community. Our local economy is not just the basis of jobs but also underpinning of our ability as a city to provide quality services for our seniors, youth and hard working families,” Aranda concluded. Aranda said that he was talking to voters who live next to Norwalk City Hall this past Saturday. “Voters were telling me that Mayor Kelley needs to stop blaming Sacramento for all the problems she created here in Norwalk,” Aranda said.

against ending the furlough for our City employees but I think we are like jumping the gun, the budget is not balanced, not by a long shot.” As for Lyon, he maintained that the projected reimbursement from the Department of Finance is “not certain yet.” Consequently, the 10% across-theboard salary deductions of Artesia City employees will end and reinstatement of their actual salaries prior to the furlough three years ago shall take effect on February 22. In addition, the 9 day/80 hour work schedule for all City employees has been re-implemented. Simultaneously however, the retirees’ dependent health coverage will be reduced from 100% to 50% as “this is consistent with the current Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) according to Interim City Manager Powell. Also, the MHN contract for employee assistance program will terminate since “it is seldom used and the Union is amenable,” added Powell. The other work-related contract terminations approved during last Monday’s City Council meeting in continuance of the mid-year budget review included consultancy services for labor relations, state lobbying, code and parking rules enforcement.

Cerritos Mayor Jim Edwards recently honored Professional Football Hall of Famer Troy Aikman as a Cerritos Hometown Hero.

Football Legend Troy Aikman Honored as Cerritos Hometown Hero Professional Football Hall of Famer Troy Aikman was honored by the City of Cerritos as a Hometown Hero at the City’s Volunteer Awards and Recognition Dinner on February 23. During the event Aikman shared comments about his positive experiences participating in the City of Cerritos’ youth sports programs and the valuable coaching he received from local volunteers. Elected officals presented Aikman with a proclamation declaring him a Cerritos Hometown Hero for his stellar career

as a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and for establishing The Troy Aikman Foundation which enhances the lives of youths through sports and academics. The City’s Volunteer Awards and Recognition Dinner was attended by 125 coaches of the City’s youth flag football, basketball, baseball and soccer programs. Past Mayor's Award recipients were also in attendance. In total, 226 coaches donated 8,700 hours of volunteer service to the City’s youth sports programs during 2012.

$21.7 MILLION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM PRESENTED TO LA PALMA COUNCIL By Rico Dizon La Palma City Engineer and Public Works Director Jeff Moneda presented a 10-year Capital Improvement Program for the City with a gross outlay of $21.7 million at its regular meeting on Feb. 19. “The staff presented this 10-Year CIP to solicit the invaluable feedbacks from the La Palma City Council most especially in the area of funding,” said Moneda. A detailed discussion on the matter has been planned for at the next La Palma City Council Meeting. “Of course, we would also like to know which particular projects should be retained and removed to guide us towards the final presentation in April which will form part to the City’s overall budget for next fiscal year that is scheduled to be adopted in June,” the City Engineer added. From the total outlay of $21,688,000, a big chunk has already been allocated to current projects mostly on sewers improvements that are taking place in the City.

For 2013-14 alone, total expenses stand at $2,643,000 and continue roughly at an average of over a million dollars every year with the last year (2022-2023) getting a $3 million share. Of outstanding prominence is the amount of $11.5 million for the Residential and Arterial Streets Rehabilitation projects which already is 50% of the whole CIP total outlay. During the meeting it was noted during the presentation that the Staff would need to look for multi-source funding with the help of the City Council. Sewer Projects amounted to $5,250,000 while Water Systems Improvements is at $3,070,000. City Hall projects are projected at $920,000 for the 10-year stretch. On the “Summary of Funding” portion of the CIP, sewer activities contribute a total of $5.4 million – the highest outside of the Capital Outlay Reserves of $3,526.275. Gas tax/HUTA shares $3.6 million while Facility Maintenance offers $1.9 million. Funding from Water-related revenues is at $2.9 million and Measure M at $2.8 million.

Continued from page 1 Assistant Ronald Belike. “Ric Mayer came to my home and handed me a piece of paper and instructed me to vote in favor of several items that were appearing on the agenda,” Chacon said. “After he handed me the document, Mayer told me ‘if I don’t vote this way… remember what happened to that guy in South Gate, and then he looked me in the eye and turned around and walked back to his car,” Chacon said. Chacon said, “Mayer could have possibly been reminding me of what happened to former South Gate Mayor Henry Gonzalez who was shot in the head after he left a city council meeting.” The document contained certain agenda items calling to “review, amend or terminate the COO’s position (Chuck Fuentes), the Assistant to the General Manager (Ron Bielke) and the Public Affairs Manager.” The document also called to “terminate all existing and current contracts to include service providers, consultants and other contracts deemed necessary by board. All contracts then terminated will be reviewed immediately by committee appointed by board president for recommendation for restatement.” LCCN has a copy of the document online at loscerritosnews.net Chacon said that he decided to talk about the situation after LCCN called him about the investigation and plans to file a report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as early as Thursday morning. “I got really concerned about my safety, and frankly, I am still scared about what Mayer said to me,” Chacon said. LCCN called Mayer at Golden State Consultants on Wednesday afternoon to response and as of press time on Thursday he had not responded. Director James Roybal said that he “had no knowledge” of what “may or may not” have taken place between Chacon and Mayer. “This is the first time that I have heard about this situation,” Roybal told LCCN on Thursday. Mayer along with political consultant Angel Gonzalez donated huge sums of money and were the two key figures responsible for getting Vasquez and Roybal elected. According to documents filed with the California Secretary of State’s Office both Vasquez and Roybal owe the two convicted figures more than $40,000 combined. Vasquez told state officials that she still owes Gonzalez at least $18,399 for campaign signs and mailing costs, more than eight months after being elected last June. Roybal owes $22,878 to Mayer in expenses. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper has been told by several sources that both Mayer and Gonzalez could be rewarded for

their connections with Vasquez and Roybal by being granted consulting contracts that could bring in hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars. Since taking office on January 7th, 2013, in less than one month, Roybal and Vasquez joined ranks with long-time Director Bob Apodaca and created a new “voting bloc majority” at Central Basin. The three changed the Administrative Code and removed President Art Chacon from overseeing the Board just barely one week after he was seated for the position. Roybal is now serving as president of the five-member board. The three also immediately removed CBMWD Director and Cerritos resident Phil Hawkins from his long held seat on the board of the Metropolitan Water District. Hawkins served as chair of the important Real Estate and Asset Management Special Committee.   Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe was angered about the recent decision to remove Hawkins from his key slot. “I’m very upset to see Phil removed from his MWD seat. Phil has been a tireless advocate for the Southeast area on water issues and his tenure means a great deal on such a large Board as the MWD. His experience as Chair of the Real Estate and Asset Management Committee will be missed,” Knabe said. “When reached by phone, Hawkins was equally as angry, “They removed me for no reason. It’s all about egos. We were doing a good job there; we were actually making money. Roybal was going to take my seat, but his school commitments prevented that, so now Leticia will be taking the seat, and she has zero experience.” Roybal as president is now in a powerful position, responsible for forming committee, items that will be allowed on the agenda, and what contracts are vetted and reviewed before they come to a vote.

KELLEY

Continued from page 1 elected official. That is always a recipe for disaster in any business and especially in a city council. Kelley even voted against the kids who play Little League in Norwalk. Who in their right mind would oppose youngsters who only want to play sports? Please note that during her term as Mayor, the crime rate went up…period. Could the children of Norwalk be better served by more sports programs, Madame Mayor? Kelley doesn’t like to be “challenged” by Los Cerritos Community Newspaper and as soon as this newspaper started to “call her out” on her missteps she worked behind the scenes to bring in her “own newspaper” (illegally for that matter). Kelley even voted against funding improvements at Little Lake Park that has been a “bastion of good” for generations.

Kelley has not provided leadership to help solve the gang violence that has claimed far too many lives during the past four years. [Remember the sports programs she opposed?] Kelley has used the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce as her own personal political platform. More than 110,000 people live in Norwalk, and millions drive through the city each and every week. We want Norwalk to become a “destination” not a “drive through” location. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper stands firm in our decision and believes that voters would be better served by choosing challenger Enrique Aranda and returning City Councilman Mike Mendez. The voters need to do the right thing, NOW, and write a new prosperous and exciting chapter in Norwalk’s future.

Continued from page 1 ago. LA MIRADA Current Mayor Gabriel Garcia started his reelection campaign off on a sour note when he was arrested and charged with being under the influence of alcohol back in December. Garcia’s arrest became headline news throughout Southern California and now he is hoping voters will return him to office for another four year term.

Taking on the two is Educator and City Commissioner Enrique Aranda, NorwalkLa Mirada Unified School Board Member Daryl Adams, and Candy Martinez.

COMMUNITYSPORTS CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION DIVISION III-AAA GIRLS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

TOP RANKED GAHR SHOCKED BY CHARGERS IN TITLE GAME By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

ANAHEIM – This past Wednesday afternoon’s California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Division III-AAA championship game was decided within the first minutes of the contest. Unfortunately for Gahr, it was unable to get into a groove and was hit with too much high voltage from Agoura’s Kim Jacobs. The leading scorer for the Chargers torched the Lady Gladiators for 30 points and sank half a dozen three-pointers as Agoura crushed the division’s top ranked team 60-39 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Gahr was looking for its fourth girls basketball championship while the Chargers won their first. “We started off real slow,” said Gahr head coach Al Dorogusker. “Our defense was really, really soft in those first five minutes and that certainly gave their shooters confidence. They’re a terrific team. They beat the number one, two and three teams in this tournament. That’s pretty darn good.” With the Chargers holding a slim 5-2

COMMUNITYSPORTS Continued from page 12 lead nearly two and a half minutes into the game, they reeled off 13 straight points with Jacobs and Brittany Mazal each scoring four during the stretch. Agoura’s stifling defense held Gahr (22-9) to only six shots in the opening quarter and forced the Lady Gladiators to turn the ball over seven times in the stanza with the Chargers scoring each time. Gahr tried to make a dent into its big deficit late in the second quarter and trailed 28-13 after an offensive rebound and basket from senior guard Jewelyn Sawyer. Her two free throws with 21.5 seconds left in the half made it a 30-17 affair but Gahr would not get closer the rest of the way. “In the second quarter I thought we played really good defense,” Dorogusker said. “They ended up with 11 points in that quarter and they scored four of them in the last couple of seconds on a couple of loose balls that bounced around. I thought our defense was really coming on. I really had high hopes for the third quarter.” “Our defense has been so exceptional over the last two weeks of this tournament,” said Agoura first-year head coach Conley Oliver. “I knew if we would play like that one more time, we definitely would have a chance at the championship. When halftime approached, the Lady Gladiators were shooting less than 23 percent from the field while the Chargers were nearing 38 percent from the field. In addition, Gahr made only one of 18 three-point shots on the game. But it wasn’t just the shooting that hampered Gahr throughout the contest. Agoura dominated the glass to the tune of 45 rebounds in the game, 23 coming on the offensive side while Gahr

had 29 rebounds. “We didn’t attack the basket,” Sawyer said. “We shot a lot of shots; a lot of air balls. I think we weren’t aggressive.” “We never got our shooters going,” Dorogusker said. “It was very, very difficult for us to make our open shots and that put no pressure on [Agoura] at all.” The Chargers and Jacobs continued to put more pressure on in the second half. Jacobs added half of her teams’ 18 points in the third quarter and scored another six on back to back three-pointers in the fourth quarter. In contrast, Gahr never scored consecutive baskets in the game. Jacobs was 12 of 29 from the field while the rest of the Chargers combined for the other 13 field goals. “She’s a terrific shooter but those girls at North Torrance shot just as well,” Dorogusker said. “She’s a good shooter but she’s not the only one around. I thought they hurt us more on the boards than with their shooting.” “When I saw Kim hit her first shot, I started looking at [my team] and they looked liked they didn’t care,” Oliver said. “It was really easy from then on to just know, if we focused on defense and ran our stuff, then we could get it done.” While Gahr, the second place representatives from the San Gabriel Valley League played three straight road games prior to the title game, winning by three points in two of those games, the 15th seeded Chargers edged second seeded Sonora 42-40 at home and knocked off third seeded El Dorado 41-36 on the road in the semifinals. This was Agoura’s second trip to the finals, having lost to Inglewood 6449 three years ago. “I ranked teams for the last five or six years,” Dorogusker said. “This year I wasn’t on a ranking committee and Agoura has always been among the top two teams. Why they were ranked 15th I have no idea. But that’s absolute nonsense.” Sawyer led Gahr with 23 points, including nine of 11 shooting from the free throw line. The future Long Beach State University standout, also grabbed nine rebounds, had her teams’ only three assists and blocked three shots. Senior forward Jasmine Gates added six points and four rebounds. “I got this tape on Sunday and I was like, ‘that girl is good’,” Oliver said of Sawyer. “I started trying to break down how we were going to stop a six-foot guard that can handle the ball, shoot a little bit and pass the ball well. Coming into this game, we told everybody if we can just contain her…that game plan worked.” Gahr will now wait for Sunday evening when the brackets to the state playoffs are released. The state playoffs begin on Wednesday.

Road Weary Gahr Holds Off Defending Champions In Fourth Quarter, Advances to Finals By Loren Kopff lorenkopff@aol.com

LAGUNA HILLS – Shortly before his Gahr girls basketball team tipped off against Laguna Hills in a California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Division III-AAA semifinal game, head coach Al Dorogusker asked how many wins he had at Gahr. The 77-year old coach, who is in his 10th and final season coaching the Lady Gladiators, picked up the biggest of his 159 Gahr victories. Last Saturday night, the Lady Gladiators nearly blew a 13-point fourth quarter lead but held on to defeat the Hawks 5451 to advance to the championship game for the first time since 1997. That season, Gahr lost to Laguna Hills 54-40 in the IIAA finals. “I get credit for all the wins,” Dorogusker joked. “Just understand that. [Assistant head coaches] David [Garcia] and Art [Jackson] did a great, great, great job in the game.” Garcia, who will succeed Dorogusker beginning next season, handled the offensive side of the game and watched Gahr, playing on the road for the third straight time, build a 49-36 lead 34 seconds into the fourth quarter. But the defending IIIAA champions battled back with a flurry of offensive rebounds and free throw shooting down the stretch to make it a onepossession contest with 42.8 seconds left to play. After Laguna Hills called a timeout with 19.7 seconds remaining, Christina King got the ball to Cheyenne Berbey, who attempted a three-pointer which was missed. Maddy Ziering-Smith grabbed the rebound but her three-pointer at the buzzer was also unsuccessful and Gahr began the long-awaited celebration. Senior guard Jewelyn Sawyer led everyone with 22 points, 14 rebounds, four blocks and three steals. However, the Long Beach State University-bound star scored only two points in the fourth quarter and picked up her fourth foul with 5:35 left in the game. When she picked up her fourth foul, Gahr was up 49-40. Junior guard Ra’vyn Bowser scored the remaining five points of the game for the second place representatives out of the San Gabriel Valley League. “Jewelyn is a great player first of all,” Dorogusker said. “She had [22 points] and controlled the game. She just did a great job. We don’t worry about her fouling out. We want the ball in her hands and she

takes care of it.” “The last minutes felt like the longest minutes of the game,” Sawyer said. “But I knew if I kept playing hard, I would have more good than bad.” With the exception of a 2-2 tie, Gahr trailed the entire first quarter and didn’t take its first lead until a three-pointer from Sawyer put the division’s top ranked team up 18-17 with 5:31 left in the first half. Gahr built on that lead and held a 27-22 halftime advantage behind Sawyer’s 11 rebounds and 10 points. The Hawks remained in striking distance throughout most of the third quarter but when Sawyer went coast to coast after a rebound and senior guard Jasmine Gates scored off her only steal, it ignited an 8-0 run that increased Gahr’s lead to 43-31 with 1:38 left in the third quarter. “I knew we weren’t going to go out without a fight,” Sawyer said. “I knew we were going to make it [to the finals]. Past the finals, I want to go to state. I don’t want to lose to anybody. Every one of the eight games that we lost, I felt horrible.” Gahr shot 44 percent from the field, a far cry from the 22 percent performance from the Hawks, who didn’t give the school’s Brett Favre club much to root about. In fact, Laguna Hills connected on eight more free throws than field goals. The hosts were 21 of 26 from the charity stripe and out-rebounded Gahr 40-30, including 23-10 on the offensive end. “[Lindsey Johnson] was in the middle of every offensive rebound,” Dorogusker said of one of the Laguna Hills starter “She kept the ball alive a whole number of times. Maybe she didn’t get credit for the rebound but she caused the ball to be whacked around.” Gahr, which faced Agoura in the championship game, picked up its 22nd win in 30 games, the most victories under Dorogusker. Last season, the Gladiators were knocked out by Rio Mesa 45-43 in the quarterfinals. Since then, everyone in the program was more than determined to get to the finals. “Rio Mesa stuck in my crawl all year without any question in mind,” Dorogusker said. “That was a game where we were down 18 points in the first half and with a minute and half to go, we had a one-point lead. I take a lot of blame for that [loss].” “We wanted to look at it as it’s a whole new season,” Sawyer said. “We don’t care where they were at last year. We want to start fresh this year and make a name for ourselves.”

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 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.
