CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE NEEDS TO SAVE COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS, IT'S EASY BY DAVID CHAVERN

You’d be hard pressed to find an industry that hasn’t been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. But when it comes to news publishing, the virus has accelerated some difficult trends, especially for small community publishers. And now yet another blow to small newspapers in California is about to be dealt, unless the state Legislature acts soon. A new report warns that the current health crisis may accelerate the closing

of community newspapers across the nation. These outlets are critical to our democracy. When they can no longer afford to continue reporting, communities lose a vital watchdog and government business is hidden from public view. Right now, many communities throughout California are suffering the loss of their watchdogs. More than a dozen newspapers have suspended operations in the last five months, with more planning to close in the coming months. Last year, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 5 for how businesses classify workers as contractors or employees. In recognition of the inapplicability of the legislation to the news industry and the economic headwinds facing community newspapers, the Legislature gave news publishers a one-year exemption, but when the extension ends in December 2020, publishers will be forced to classify newspaper carriers as employees. This significant change to a business practice that has been in place for more than 100 years will have the effect of increasing the cost of newspaper delivery by as much as 85%, a burden et ready to explore the that is unsustainable for small publishers all-new Sesame Street that have also recently been hit with Neighborhood advertising revenue declines ofwith 30% the to 50% as a result same of thecolorful coronavirus street crisis. charLocal publishersacters have sounded the from Hooper’s alarm with California lawmakers, Store, Abby’s Garden, Big Bird’s but Nest, so far, have notStoop. takenSouthern any stepsCalto and thethey iconic 123 address the devastating this park will ifornia will be adding a impact new theme have on both publishers and readers. to their lineup of fun family places in Small community and ethnic 2022, based on one of the most famous and enduring children's show in history.

Rededication of Bardwell Hall at BIOLA

New Kiwanis Club in Norwalk

CALIFORNIA STATE SENATOR Bob Archuleta, D-Pico Rivera (2nd from left) , joined the BIOLA University community at the rededication of Bardwell Hall in La Mirada. Bardwell Hall will now house the Department of Arts' new studios, galleries, labs and other learning opportunities for students. Archuleta is pictured (l-r) with La Mirada Councilman John Lewis, BIOLA President Dr. Barry Corey and La Mirada Mayor Ed Eng.

A new Kiwanis Club, Kiwanis 605 opened last month in Norwalk meeting at 6 P.M., every second Thursday of each month at Mr. Rosewoods, 10640 Rosecrans Ave. The club has been formed to help meet the needs of children across the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District, ABC Unified School District, Little Lake City School District, Whittier Union High School District, and surrounding communities. “Kiwanis clubs provide a great opportunity to meet new friends who believe in serving their communities, networking with business professionals and making a signifi-

Housing Market Cools, But Homes Remain Expensive BY BRIAN HEWS Southern California home prices slipped at bit in August from the previous month, as the market cooled from the torrid pace earlier this year. The six-county region’s median sales price was $680,000, a 0.1% slip. The year-over-year gain was 13.9% above August 2020 levels, the smallest since February. Experts had predicted that home price gains would moderate because incomes can’t support continued price appreciation at the 20% levels seen earlier this year. The pandemic market frenzy was in large part sparked by record low mortgage

rates and the desire for more space . Those same experts expect home values to decline, given the long-running mismatch between supply and demand. In Riverside County, the median price rose over 19% to $525,000, while sales climbed 6.%. In San Bernardino County, the median price rose 22% to $465,000, while sales rose 9.%. In San Diego County, the median price rose 13% to $725,000, while sales climbed nearly 4%. In Ventura County, the median price rose nearly 15% $740,250, while sales rose a measly 1.3%. In Los Angeles County, the median price rose over 13% to $785,000, while sales climbed 14%. In Orange County, the median price rose nearly 13% to $900,000, while sales climbed 4.5%.

FDA Authorizes Booster Jab for 65+ STAFF REPORT The FDA authorized the use of Pfizer booster shots for a wider group of Americans this week. The authorization covers people over 65, people at high risk for severe illness, and frontline health workers as well. Right now a third Pfizer shot is only authorized for immune-compromised people. With the FDA authorization, the CDC Advisory Committee, which is also meeting this week, will come up with specific recommendations for the booster. This comes one day after Johnson & Johnson released new data showing booster shots increased the efficacy of its vaccine. One J&J shot is more than 70% effective, but the company found a second dose

administered two months after the first increases protection against symptomatic disease to 94%. “We have a growing body of evidence that a second shot is important,” said Dr. John Brownstein, PhD of Boston Children’s Hospital. “Now it’s going to be up to the FDA to figure out when and how that happens. Last week, an FDA advisory panel overwhelmingly rejected a plan to give Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots across the board, and instead endorsed the extra vaccine dose only for those who are 65 or older or run a high risk of severe disease. The twin votes represented a heavy blow to the Biden administration’s sweeping effort, announced a month ago, to shore up nearly all Americans’ protection amid the spread of the highly contagious delta variant.

Million Dollar Financial Aid Scam Hits Cerritos College Cerritos Community College was amongst the string of California Community Colleges that fell victim to the federal financial aid scam made by fake students admissions. Cerritos College received about 9,000 bogus applications . It was recently reported that 65,000 fraudulent applications were sent to California Community Colleges. The applications gathered from Cerritos Community College do not correlate with the other community colleges. The financial aid grants fake applicants received were federal Pell grants. Professors began notifying faculty members when trends started to appear in June. Classes that were affected by the fraudulent student accounts were classes that required no English or math clearance, humanities and business classes.

“Those were severely impacted,” said Tafoya. “the fraudulent students were taking up seats in classes that could have taken seats from other students but the departments in reality started when they saw a class was full they started adding sections to offer more courses to the students.” The amount of damage done due to the scam is unknown. Classes were continuously being offered to supply the increased demand. No known student has come forward with a complaint. Professors began notifying faculty members when trends started to appear in June. Tafoya said hesitantly, “Since June we’ve dropped a little over 3700 students or withdrawn them from classes and each one was taking three to four classes.”

STAFF REPORT

# demic interventions, technology integra      

The U.S. Department of Education has been recognizing outstanding schools through the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program for 38 years. This year, the program is recognizing Cerritos Elementary School. “Being named a National Blue Ribbon School is a tremendous honor for our students and staff,” said Cerritos Elementary School Principal Craig Spratt. “This recognition is due to the hard work of the entire school community. I couldn’t be more proud.” Cerritos Elementary School received the National Blue Ribbon in the “Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing” category. This category highlights schools that have made the most significant advances in closing gaps for students in English and math over the past three to five years. In the program application, Mr. Spratt noted that three main factors have led to high student achievement – targeted aca-

tion, and social-emotional learning. “It’s truly wonderful news to hear that Cerritos Elementary School has again been named a National Blue Ribbon School,” said ABC Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Mary Sieu. “I congratulate Mr. Spratt and his entire team of teachers and staff members for the extraordinary work they do for their students.” This year, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognized 325 schools for their overall academic performance and for closing the achievement gap. The National Blue Ribbon Schools award affirms the hard work of educators, families, and communities in creating school environments where students are challenged and engaged. Cerritos Elementary School was previously awarded a National Blue Ribbon in 2001. You can learn more about the 2021 National Blue Ribbon Schools at www. nationalblueribbonschools.ed.gov.

LEAVING HEALTHY perennials like coneflower stand for winter provides food for birds, winter interest and homes for many beneficial insects.

Preparing Your Garden for Winter Add some spring color by planting daffodils, grape hyacinths, tulips, and other spring flowering bulbs this fall. It is also a good time to add trees, shrubs, and perennials to the landscape. BY MELINDA MYERS

F

all is a season of transition and that includes your garden. Make the most of beautiful fall days to enjoy your garden and prepare your landscape for the winter ahead. Put fall leaves to work in your landscape improving your soil, reducing maintenance, and creating winter homes beneficial insects. Mow over the leaves that land on the lawn. It may take a couple passes but once the fall leaves are the size of a quarter you can leave them on the lawn to add organic matter and nutrients to the soil. Or mow, bag and add the shredded leaves to annual flowers or vegetable gardens. Dig several inches of shredded leaves into the top 8 to 12 inches of garden soil. The leaves will decompose over winter, adding organic

matter to the soil. Still more leaves; add them to the compost pile. Mixing this carbon rich plant debris to greens like plant-based kitchen scraps, manure, and worm castings makes for great compost. Use leaves as mulch on the soil around the base of perennials. They suppress weeds, conserve moisture, insulate the roots and add organic matter to the soil as they decompose. Leaves also provide winter homes and insulation for insects that overwinter in leaf litter or just below the soil surface. Leave healthy perennials stand for winter. They add winter interest to the landscape, provide homes for many beneficial insects and the seeds of Rudbeckia, coneflower, liatris, and others provide food for the birds. These winged visitors add welcome color and motion to the often, gray days of winter. Take time to remove any dead, damaged and diseased stems, and branches. Disinfect your tools between cuts to reduce the risk of spreading disease to healthy plants. Clean tools with a spray disinfectant or 70% alcohol between cuts to manage disease organisms without harming your tools. Refresh mulch around trees and shrubs. Maintaining a three-inch layer helps conserve moisture, insulates the roots from temperature extremes, reduces competition from the lawn for water and nutrients and improves the soil as it decomposes.

FLOWERING BULBS like the White Hyancinth to the left, do very well in the winter.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2021 Pull mulch away from the trunk of trees and stems of shrubs. Piling mulch over these can lead to rot, decline and early death of the plants. Help your lawn recover from the stresses of summer and prepare for winter with fall fertilization. University research found fall fertilization is most beneficial for home lawns. Fall fertilization encourages deep roots and denser growth that is better able to compete with weeds and tolerate disease and insect pests. Always sweep grass clippings and chemicals off walks and drives and back into the lawn where they belong. This simple step keeps unwanted nutrients out of waterways and eventually our drinking water. Add some spring color by planting daffodils, grape hyacinths, tulips, and other spring flowering bulbs this fall. It is also a good time to add trees, shrubs, and perennials to the landscape. The soil is warm and air cool, making it less stressful for plants to adjust to their new home. Mulch new plantings and water thoroughly whenever the top few inches of soil are crumbly and moist. Continue watering new and existing plantings as needed until the ground freezes. Once the garden is prepared for winter, you can put away the hoses and garden tools, and wait for spring to arrive.

WEEK FOUR FOOTBALL

Herrera, Norwalk reclaim Mayor’s Cup from John Glenn in typical emphatic way BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER Halloween came a month and a half early for Norwalk High’s football team, even if it was only for one play. Unfortunately for John Glenn High, it wasn’t the treat it was hoping for in the 57th edition of the annual Mayor’s Cup game, pitting the two rivals from the city of Norwalk. Norwalk first-year head coach Ruben Guerrero dipped into his bag of tricks and fooled everyone by passing on the first play of the game, something you wouldn’t expect out of an offense solely built around the double-wing. It was just the beginning of an explosive offensive performance in the first half that propelled the Lancers to a 51-7 victory. Glenn had won the previous two meetings after being on the short end for 15 consecutive seasons. “It feels good; it feels good all around,” Guerrero said. “I’m happy for the kids, I’m happy for the school, I’m happy we were able to take it back home.” “This feeling is unreal,” said Norwalk junior running back David Herrera.

“I remember when I was a freshman and they beat our varsity team, I was feeling angry, and I just wanted to avenge our guys. It’s our time now and we just did what we do, and we came out with a ‘W’.” The 51 points scored are the most by any Norwalk team in the series since 2015 when the Lancers blanked the Eagles 56-0 and the sixth time since 2010 that Norwalk has scored at least 50 points in the series. On the other side, the seven points Glenn scored marked the third straight meeting between the two that the loser could only muster a touchdown. It’s also the 10th time since 2000 and the 23rd time since the series began in 1964 that Glenn has been held to a touchdown or less. Guerrero and Herrera said that the play that was run to begin the game is in Norwalk’s playbook, and they practice it every week, although it’s not a big part of the offense. Still, junior quarterback Caden Barnhill was able to launch a deep ball to Herrera, who escaped the touches of senior defensive back Iona Young around the Norwalk 40-yard line and raced down the far sideline for the score. “Coach had told us he had a surprise

La Mirada football faces another tough opponent to end non-league action BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER

For the La Mirada High football team, it’s been tough sledding through the first five weeks of the regular season, but the program is used to it. Now, the Matadores will be closing out their non-league schedule ahead of their by week by facing the nation’s top high school squad. Tonight, at the Santa Ana Bowl, La Mirada will face Mater Dei High, which has played just two games this season. Meanwhile, the Matadores enter the con-

test with a 3-2 mark after losing to Foothill High 34-7 last Friday. The loss ended a three-game winning streak that saw La Mirada shutout Chaffey High 28-0 on the road, knock off St. Margaret’s High 31-21 with a 14-point fourth quarter and edge Millikan High 27-26 on the road after trailing 17-6 at the half. La Mirada junior quarterback Nehuel Garcia has thrown for 863 yards and nine touchdowns with junior wide receiver Xavier Hicks his favorite target, who has hauled in 33 receptions for 474 yards and caught four touchdowns. Senior tight end

for me and Caden on Monday,” Herrera said. “To be honest, I didn’t think we were going to run it. He barely let us know [after the opening kickoff] when Caden ran out with the play, and we just executed it.” “Well, this week we were just trying to come up with something new and that was just it,” Guerrero said. “We said we always open on the ground, so let’s open in the air and see what happens. [Assistant] coach [Eddie] Moreno and I held onto the [play]. We ran practice as normal; we didn’t want to the kids to have any inkling about it. So, we sprung it on them and we’re just happy it all worked out.” Glenn’s first play from scrimmage was a fumble, which was recovered by junior linebacker Daniel Castillo and on the next play, senior running back Jonathan Goodloe scored on a 12-yard run. Just like that, two plays, 93 yards, 23 seconds and it was 14-0. The Lancers would add their third score of the night with 2:15 left in the opening quarter when Herrera went in from four yards out. That was the end of just a three-play drive that used up 22 yards and 1:26. “That surprised us too, but still, we had a guy there,” said Glenn head coach David Cruz of the first play of the game. “[Young] just didn’t make a play, and that’s our best kid. You’re expecting him to make a play and it just didn’t happen.” Down 21-0, Glenn didn’t make things easier for its offense as numerous times, the snap from center would go above the heads or past senior quarterback Nataniel Jacobo or senior punter Jimmy Torres. In all, the Eagles were held to 95 yards on 41 plays with 15 of them going for negative yardage. Meanwhile, the Lancers racked up 312 yards in the first half alone on just 16 plays and did all that in just 6:38. “I have to give it to our defense for getting us the ball,” Guerrero said. “I have to give it to our offensive line for opening up holes for Goodloe and David Herrera to run through. Up front, the kids on both sides just played so tough that they make things happen. They make it happen for us.

Aidan Nasser (12 receptions, 125 yards, one touchdowns) and senior wide receivers Edward Lafferre (seven receptions, 74 yards) and John Ojeisekhoba (nine receptions,122 yards, one touchdowns) are also top targets. Lafferre also leads the team in rushing with 67 yards, 430 yards and three scores. Mater Dei crushed Duncanville (TX) High 45-3 on Aug. 27 and Liberty (Henderson, NV) High 49-7 on Sept. 10 in the Polynesian Football Classic for its only action this season. The Monarchs were scheduled to begin the season on Aug. 20 against Corona Centennial High and had Mililani (HI) High on the docket. Quarterback Elijah Brown has thrown for 472 yards and five touchdowns with C.J. Williams catching 11 passes for 192 yards and scoring twice. Running back Raleek Brown leads the ground game with 14 carries for 171 yards and five scores. The Mater Dei defense also has recorded seven sacks. This will be the fifth time since 2015 that the teams have faced each other. On Sept. 11, 2015, Mater Dei freshman signal caller J.T. Daniels threw for 290 yards and all six touchdowns in a 42-7 win. La Mirada would eventually win the CIF-

SEPTEMBER 24, 2021 So, to make the most of it, I owe it all to them for doing it.” Following a punt to begin the second quarter, Herrera got loose for a 62-yard touchdown on Norwalk’s initial play of the stanza, and when Torres missed a 44-yard field goal, Goodloe scored on an 80-yard run to make it 37-0 with 4:46 remaining in the half. The final score before halftime came with 1:39 left and was by Herrera again, this time a 14-yard run. Norwalk ran four plays in the second quarter, picked up 162 yards on four plays and needed 75 seconds to do that. “We just take what the defense gives is and we take a little bit more,” Herrera said. “We create and my O-line just blocked for us. We have a great O-line, so the place just opened up and we just run through the hole, make a couple of moves and we just break it free. That’s it. “ “That offense does do damage against us,” Cruz said. “There’s a reason why this is the only team left on our schedule that runs this offense. They do a great job of what they do, but we won’t ever see it in our league. I really don’t like playing that offense. We didn’t spend a lot of time practicing it. But they put a whooping on us.” A few times, Glenn’s offense showed it could move the ball. On its first possession of the second quarter, it held the ball for 6:39 and picked up 60 yards, getting to the Norwalk 19-yard line. But three straight plays resulting in negative yardage led to the missed field goal. The lone bright spot came late in the third quarter when Young scored on a 61-yard run to cap off the game’s scoring. Young managed to eclipse the century mark, gaining 108 yards on 20 carries. “Every time we seemed to get a drive, we shoot ourselves in the foot,” Cruz said. “We had something like six or seven, maybe eight fumbles tonight and the exchange in the shotgun [formation] killed us. We thought we would have them at a disadvantage when we ran shotgun and put three wide receivers to a single side. And we just could not capitalize on it.” “It was the size of their line,” Guerrero said of his concerns with Glenn. “I thought they had some guys in the trenches we were going to have a fight [with]. That’s what I came into the game with that mindset.” The entire second half was played under running clock conditions and the final Norwalk touchdown was scored on its third and only play of the third quarter when

605 LEAGUE GIRLS VOLLEYBALL

Cerritos comes out sluggish but has enough to post another sweep in league action BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER Even the volleyball queens of the 605 League are allowed to have an off day now and then. Just don’t expect Cerritos High head coach David Cuthbert to let it slide or his team to be happy about it. The Lady Dons, who saw their eightmatch winning streak snapped last Saturday afternoon in the championship match of the Bellflower-Valley Christian volleyball tournament, let Pioneer High hang around for much of the second and third sets before coming away with a 25-13, 25-21, 25-21 victory this past Tuesday, improving to 13-3 overall and 4-0 in league play. Cerritos has now

NORWALK from page 10 junior fullback Anthony Martinez scored from 11 yards out. Goodloe led everyone with 128 yards on six carries while Herrera added 109 yards on seven carries. As a team, the Lancers racked up 369 yards. Defensively, Castillo had three tackles and the fumble recovery while senior lineman Adrian Castillo and sophomore lineman Jonathan Anguiano each added three tackles. After winning four games from 20182020, the Lancers are sitting at 4-1 this season and have held three opponents to seven points or less. Despite the score of this game and most of the games in the rivalry, which now stands at 38-17 in favor of the purple and gold with the 1965 and 1982 results unknown, the crowds on both sides of Glenn’s stadium were nearly packed and noisy. “This is an important game; an important game for the city, it’s an important game for the schools and it’s an important game for the students,” Guerrero said. “This game needs to happen no matter what the records [are]; no matter what the standings [are] because it brings out a good crowd. It’s a game that means a lot to everyone who lives in the city and goes to the two schools.” The Eagles will visit Hawthorne High tonight, hoping to end a two-game losing streak in which they have been outscored 92-13. In 2018, Glenn edged Hawthorne 51-50 on the road but lost the next season at home, 24-16. Hawthorne enters tonight’s scheduled game winless in three games after a 48-20 setback to El Segundo High. In its first two games, Hawthorne was outscored 56-6. This is Glenn’s second road game of the season and first since

won all 24 league matches since the inception of the league with wins in 72 of 73 sets played over that time. “That’s the word; we were sluggish,” Cuthbert said. “We’re always going to celebrate a win because it moves us one step towards one of our goals. So, we’re happy with that. But we’re not happy with how we played because it feels like if we want to make some more noise this year, whether that’s in the [Pacifica] tournament [on Saturday] or looking ahead towards postseason stuff. We know we need to be better than that.” The first set was more like Cerritos girls volleyball as junior outside hitter Jordynn Hollins served five straight points to give the hosts an early 7-1 Aug. 27. “They’re going to have athletes too,” Cruz said. “But we need to be more disciplined. We have to eliminate the fumbles and we have to execute a little better. A big problem that we have is so many new kids came out on the first day of school and they’re barely learning the offense. They go out there and they mix the plays up. So, it’s difficult for us to sustain a drive when you get 12 people in there because they didn’t know they’re not in there on trips or this person doesn’t know that they’re in on tight formation.” Norwalk will have a tough task as it travels to El Rancho High, undefeated in all five games played in 2021. The Dons have outscored their foes 210-16 with four shutouts. Quarterback Elijah Mitchell has already thrown for 1,005 yards and 14 touchdowns while running back Anthony Bonilla leads the ground game with 529 yards on 57 carries and nine touchdowns. As a team, El Rancho has put up 2,162 allpurpose yards and on defense, seven players have combined to sack opposing quarterbacks 11 times while six players have a combined nine interceptions, led by Jacob Medina who has two sacks and two picks. “Some of their strengths…they look like they’re a well-coached team,” Guerrero said of El Rancho. “They throw the ball around pretty well, and I think that’s something that we’re going to have to try and contend with. That’s something that we’re going to have to work on really hard and we’re going to have to be very mindful of. They [also] look very stout on defense.”

lead. Aces from senior outside hitter Mikayla Guerrero and freshman defensive specialist Gabriella Colombo gave the Lady Dons leads of 12-5 and 14-6 respectively. The tally would be expanded to 19-9 on consecutive kills from Guerrero and after a serving error, an ace from senior libero Mia Rodriguez and kills from senior outside hitter Silvina Montiel and senior setter Leanna Tolentino put the set away at 23-11. But the Titans, who finished in third place in the inaugural year of the league before not winning a league match the next season, stunned the home crowd when they bolted out to an 8-2 lead in the second set, fueled by four aces from Jennifer Reynoso. As quickly as Pioneer raced to the six-point lead, Cerritos quickly regained the lead at 9-8 when Rodriguez had four straight aces. Pioneer would later have leads of 16-13 and 18-15 before the first kill from junior middle blocker Isa Cilloniz started one finally rally Cerritos needed. Hollins would serve two straight aces, put down her fifth kill followed by another ace and Tolentino’s fifth kill. The Titans would collect eight kills in each of the first two sets and on some of them, the Lady Dons defense would leave an open hole in the middle of the court for Mariela Duarte and others to tap what normally should be a routine dig but turned into a kill. “That ball is easy to defend if we’re paying attention; if we move our feet,” Cuthbert said. “And I think those are two things that we did not do very well today. We did not maintain a level of concentration, and we were not active enough moving our feet.” Rodriguez added two more aces in the early moments of the third set, putting the Lady Dons up 6-3. That was short-lived because Pioneer bounced back to tie the set with three straight points. But a kill from Guerrero, two more from Cilloniz

and an ace from senior defensive specialist Jada Ramos gave Cerritos a 10-6 lead which is would not relinquish. Pioneer would stay within an arm’s length, twice rallying from six-point deficits to trail by two points twice late in the set. But a serve into the net and a kill from Hollins, her ninth, made it 2319. She would also add five aces and three digs while Guerrero led all players with 11 kills, six digs and four aces. “We knew from the start of the year she was going to be a big player for us,” Cuthbert said of Hollins. “With an injury earlier in the year, we didn’t want to risk her. We knew she was going to be a big part of our offense and we didn’t see enough of her today. There’s a little bit more for [uniform] number 7.” Cerritos will end the first round of league play today when it visits John Glenn High, then face Pacifica High, Fountain Valley High and Whittier High in pool play action of the Pacifica Tournament on Saturday before resuming league action on Tuesday at Oxford Academy. Up until the Pioneer match, the Lady Dons had surrendered at least 20 points in half a dozen of its 70 league sets since the 2018 season and have held opponents to under 10 points 17 times. As a side note, Cuthbert now improves to 132-62 in his eight seasons at Cerritos, the winningest girls volleyball head coach at the school in over 25 seasons, at least. Former head coach Khanh Vo compiled 93 victories from 2007-2012. “The history speaks for itself, that we have been a dominant team in the 605 [League] and that’s something that we are aiming to continue for this year going forward as well,” Cuthbert said. “Nobody hands a trophy our for those stats. So, we don’t worry too much about it. But we are concerned with making statements and reinforcing who we are within this league, and today was a little bit of a missed opportunity for that.”

HOUSING from page 1 one housing unit can be built on a given parcel of land known as R1. According to experts, two-thirds of all the residences in California are singlefamily homes; over three-quarters of the developable land in the state is now zoned only for single-family housing. Supporters of ending single-familyonly zoning argue that where a 2,000 square foot home in California can cost $1.3 million, opening up neighborhoods to more development will allow less expensive housing to be built there. Proponents worry about increased density that could change neighborhoods and affect property values. They say the market will be dominated by developers looking to flip homes as cheaply as possible and renting it for top dollar, accelerating gentrification. Only SB 9 would have an immediate and direct effect on local zoning. SB 9 gives many single-family homeowners the ability to divide their lots into two and build up to three additional homes, essentially turning a single-unit lot into a four-unit lot. But the law has limitations, designed to preserve rental and low-income housing, guard against illegal displacement, and retain local governments’ control over design standards. It also prevents local officials from

adopting rules that undermine the law. The limitatons include: Farms, wetlands, high-risk lots, and sites in historic districts are among those that are specifically exempt. The zoning changes apply only to urban areas or urban clusters. No demolition of low-income housing; units that have been rented within the previous three years cannot be altered, thereby avoiding the reduction of the supply of rental and affordable units. The subdivided lots have to be at least 1,200 square feet each and nearly the same size. Houses must be at least 800 square feet can be adjacent and connected. If you subdivide a lot, you must commit to living in one of the units there for at least three years. Local governments can still impose standards of appearance and the placement on lots; but they have no power to restrict street parking spots per unit, or any off-street parking if the units are within half a mile of public transit. Homeowners cannot turn the unit into a short-term rental, like AIRBNB. According to the UC Berkley study, “the analysis shows that approximately 700,000 new, homes would be built. But despite the concerns of some of its detractors, SB 9 will not lead to the overnight transformation of residential neighborhoods. Owner preferences and the permit

process will stifle building in the near term. As such, while important, the new units unlocked by SB 9 would represent a fraction of the overall supply needed.” SB 10 is like SB 9’s uncle, allowing local governments to change their zoning rules quickly to allow 10 unit housing developments near mass transit or in urban areas; Artesia is in this class as is all the cities along the future WSAB Metro line route. SB 10 allows changes to be made without triggering an expensive CEQA review, but multiunit projects would still be subject to the environmental law. In the short term, not much will be happening; even though they would have new rights, property owners must submit plans and building permits, that can take months. UC Berkeley projects that only a small percentage of residential lots would see extra units because the extra construction wouldn’t make financial sense in some places. According to the UCB, just 5.4% of the state’s single-family lots will convert, which would be over 375,000. The UCB study indicates that over 700,000 units would be built statewide. https://ternercenter.berkeley.edu/wpcontent/uploads/2021/07/SB-9-Brief-July-2021-Final.pdf “This analysis finds that SB 9’s primary impact will be to unlock incrementally more units on parcels that are already

financially feasible under existing law, typically through the simple subdivision of an existing structure. Relatively few new single-family parcels are expected to become financially feasible for added units as a direct consequence of this bill. While this analysis does not attempt to measure the actual rate of uptake for adding new units to single-family parcels, it is reasonable to assume that SB 9 will modestly accelerate the addition of new units relative to the status quo by facilitating access to conventional mortgage products for multiple households able to purchase homes on newly subdivided single-family.” The Regional Housing Needs Assessment, which area cities are now formulating, is a state-mandated projection of what it will take to house the growing in cities. Cities and counties whose land-use rules do not meet the demands of their population will have less power to resist multiunit housing projects that bring more affordable housing to urban areas. The Assessments can take years, but SB 10 gives cities an easier way to rezone, a faster way zone for up to 10-unit buildings, with height limits set by the local government to be approved; they could beat the developers building larger projects.

vaccination by Jan. 1, 2022. Staff who do not submit proof of vaccination after 30 days, will be given unpaid leave and subject to disciplinary action. Fierro did not specify what “disciplinary action” would mean, but suggested it would possibly entail termination at the board’s discretion. The college will allow medical and religious exemptions from the vaccine, but the board was unclear on how they would verify the exemptions. “We have to have some sort of safety protocol like showing proof of vaccination and proof of a negative test until we can institute a full vaccination policy,” said trustee, Mariana Pacheco. Trustee, Marisa Perez, expressed confusion over the qualifications for a vaccine exemption and the period of time faculty will have to submit their documentation before being placed on leave. “I still have a lot of questions. We need to get some legal guidance,” said Perez. “This is an issue that is coming across the entire community college system. Some of these legal issues such as liability, I think we need to understand better.” Due to the need for clarification, revisions will be made to the policy and

the trustees will bring it back in their next meeting. “The safety of this campus, the safety of the faculty and students is incredibly important,” said Pacheco. College faculty and members of the public took the opportunity to voice their disdain for the vaccine requirement. While some believed the mandate was an infringement on their freedoms, others spread disproven information about COVID and the effectiveness of the vaccine. Tenured faculty member Rossitza Petrova threatened the board with lawsuits if they implemented the mandate. “What are you going to do with us tenured staff if we refuse to get this vaccine? Are you going to fire us? Are you prepared for the lawsuits coming your way,” said Petrova. The staff member went on to claim she has natural immunity to COVID after contracting the virus during the pandemic. However, as board member Dr. Sandra Salazar would later point out, people who have contracted COVID can still become infected. Cerritos College cosmetology instructor, Scarlett Chiros, built upon Petrova’s statement.

“You may think we will concede and give in when our income is being threatened, but you are wrong,” said Chiros. “Class action lawsuits will follow. We will not go quietly.” Cynthia Rosindes, a mother of two students at Cerritos, opposes the mandate as well, despite her family contracting the virus last year. She claimed the vaccine is ineffective and helps spread the virus, despite the CDC proving otherwise. “If the college decides to move forward and mandate this experimental vaccine, and votes to contribute to modern-day segregation,” said Rosindes. “I have decided to enroll my children in other colleges that won’t place obstacles in the way of their education and will not discriminate against other students.” Trustee, Zurich Lewis, agreed with the opposition and expressed his fear that students and faculty will leave the college. “There are many reasons to vaccinate but it should not be something that we, as a board, force upon our students,” said Lewis. The board will bring the vaccine policy back for a second reading, and vote to implement the revisions in their next meeting on Oct. 6.

the cancellation notice, she was verbally harassed by Cortes and Martinez; Pulido turned around and headed upstairs. According to CB policy, the public is not allowed upstairs, but Vasquez ordered Cortes and Martinez to follow Pulido; Pulido “screamed” for security, and the two were taken downstairs by the CB guard. Pulido finished by writing, “I fear for my safety. I fear for my health. HR is aware of my health condition and this is beyond unfair that this woman (Vasquez) continues to get away with so much.” “She is creating a horrible working environment for everyone, it is TOXIC.” Following Vasquez-Wilson’s cue, Camacho-Rodriguez, who claims to be a social justice and women's rights advocate, also intimidated and harassed Pulido. In a June 2020 memo, Pulido stated that Camacho-Rodriguez was constantly “sarcastic, condescending, and disrespectful” accusing Pulido of never doing her job while using members of the public to harass her; Pulido “She enables harassment, at one meet-

 !  "! % # >% BY DAVID CHAVERN You’d be hard pressed to find an industry that hasn’t been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. But when it comes to news publishing, the virus has accelerated some difficult trends, especially for small community publishers. And now yet another blow to small newspapers in California is about to be dealt, unless the state Legislature acts soon. A new report warns that the current health crisis may accelerate the closing

of community newspapers across the nation. These outlets are critical to our democracy. When they can no longer afford to continue reporting, communities lose a vital watchdog and government business is hidden from public view. Right now, many communities throughout California are suffering the loss of their watchdogs. More than a dozen newspapers have suspended operations in the last five months, with more planning to close in the coming months. Last year, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 5 for how businesses classify workers as contractors or employees. In recognition of the inapplicability of the legislation to the news industry and the economic headwinds facing community newspapers, the Legislature gave news publishers a one-year exemption, but when the extension ends in December 2020, publishers will be forced to classify newspaper carriers as employees. This significant change to a business practice that has been in place for more than 100 years will have the effect of increasing the cost of newspaper delivery by as much as 85%, a burden that is unsustainable for small publishers that have also recently been hit with advertising revenue declines of 30% to 50% as a result of the coronavirus crisis. Local publishers have sounded the alarm with California lawmakers, but so far, they have not taken any steps to address the devastating impact this will have on both publishers and readers. Small community and ethnic

According to sources, the two used Trump-like tactics, transporting their associates to CB, who would verbally harass and slander other directors and staff in the building while also harassing during public comment at zoom meetings. Trying to steal from the Saul Alinsky playbook, the four hurled slanderous statements at public comment, used leaked privileged information and falsified documents.

The attacks got so bad that Pulido feared for her safety, punctuated by Vasquez-Wilson and Camacho-Rodriguez sending Cortes and Martinez to harass Pulido at her house. Pulido was pregnant at the time. According to the FOIA documents, several harassment incidents occurred involving Martinez and Cortes, enabled by Vasquez-Wilson and Camacho-Rodriguez.

CENTRAL BASIN from page 13 house, trespassing in an attempt to knock on the door and intimidate Pulido. Just weeks later, Vasquez-Wilson and Camacho-Rodriguez attempted to use bully tactics to extort over $40,000 from the agency. The scheme started when the two handed invoices in the amount of $40,000 to GM Alex Rojas payable to two “consultants,” Dallas Fowler and former California Assemblyman Rudy Bermudez. The two claimed they worked on defeating SB 625, the bill authored by Asm. Cristina Garcia (D-Bell) to throw the now highly solvent agency into receivership,

but no one involved in lobbying for SB 625 had heard of Fowler or claimed to work with Bermudez. When Rojas rejected the invoices, Vasquez-Wilson and Camacho-Rodriguez, along with Cortes and Martinez, subjected Rojas to private and public harassment “until he paid the invoices.” When he refused, they showed up at the Sept. 28 meeting and were so disruptive, other directors requested they reconvene on Sept. 29 to finish the agenda. After the meeting, Rojas, on the record, told HMG-CN he received a phone call from Bermudez who said, "this [the harassment] will all go away if you pay the invoices and make sure Vasquez-

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. 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.servicelinkASAP.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2021-01343. 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 TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an "eligible tenant buyer," you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an "eligible bidder," you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (714) 730-2727, or visit this internet website www.servicelinkASAP.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2021-01343 to find the date on which the trustee's sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee's sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee's sale. If you think you may qualify as an "eligible tenant buyer" or "eligible bidder," you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Since then, the two directors and their collection of southeast Los Angeles cronies have continued to harass the board and staff of the District. According to the District, there are several ongoing investigations involving Vasquez-Wilson and Camacho-Rodriguez. Several former employees have filed claims, the stolen files are being reviewed, and the fraudulent invoices are under investigation. CB is also contemplating possible legal action against Cortes and Martinez.

In an email, CB President Art Chacon told HMG-CN, “It is disappointing to see such unprofessional behavior at our meetings from people who waste our meeting time attacking the board, the staff and our customers. Despite the attacks from this group, who are only trying to embarrass or harm the District, the majority of the board will continue to move forward in a positive manner. We are working with our purveyors to keep the cost of imported water low, expand our recycled water services and collaborate with other water agencies in our area to provide high-quality water to the communities we serve.”

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 TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction.

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 800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee's sale or visit this internet website http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-19-858589-RY. 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 website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an "eligible tenant buyer," you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an "eligible bidder," you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 800-280-2832, or visit this internet website http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-19-858589-RY to find the date on which the trustee's sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee's sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee's sale. If you think you may qualify as an "eligible tenant buyer" or "eligible bidder," you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. 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 sale is set aside for any reason, including if the Trustee is unable to convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser's sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary's Agent, or the Beneficiary's Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right's against the real property only.
