A study of this policy found that the partisan afďŹ liations of exfelons roughly matched partisan trends observed in the general public, with the overwhelming majority of Black ex-felons registering as Democrats and a roughly even split between Republicans

are not Black. The population of parolees in California is disproportionately Black and Latino. In 2016, 26% of California’s parole population was Black (even though only 6% of California’s overall population was) and 40% of California’s parole population was Latino. In California, Black voters and Latino voters, according to the California Public Policy Institute, tend to vote Democrat by a signiďŹ cant margin. However, most research also suggests that voter turnout amongst parolees would be very low. The Florida study mentioned above found that, among those eligible to vote, only 16 percent of black ex-felons and 12 percent of all other felons voted in the 2016 election. Another study found that only ~13 percent of ex-felons in Iowa who had gotten their right to vote restored in

dential election, much smaller than the ~55% turnout rate observed in the whole electorate that year. Given the low turnout typically observed among ex-felons and the Democratic party’s dominance in recent statewide elections - Governor Newsom and Governor Brown won each of the last 3 gubernatorial elections by over 1,000,000 votes - prop 17 would hardly make a dent in statewide election results. Even at the local level, where prop 17 has the potential to be most relevant politically, only a handful of races were decided by less than 10,000 votes in recent years. Currently, 19 states allow parolees to vote. The passage of prop 17 would be perhaps the most progressive shift in California’s electoral policy since the state began allowing ex-felons (who had completed their prison sentence/parole) to vote in 1974.

FAMILIES ACROSS the ABC Unified School District have set up workspaces for their students' studies in the ABC Virtual Academy.

ABCUSD NEWS SERVICE On Monday, August 24, 2020, ABC Unified School District schools started the new school year. Parents didn’t drop students off at school, lunches weren’t packed, and students didn’t stand in line to be led into their classes. Instead, students were home, learning from their teachers through the ABC Virtual Academy. “This new school year is beginning very differently. With over 30 years in the District, it is certainly different to me,” said Superintendent Dr. Mary Sieu. “But that doesn’t mean it’s any less special for our students who are beginning new grades and meeting their teachers with anticipation and excitement.” Students aren’t the only ones adjusting to online learning; teachers are too. Both new and seasoned teachers are learning how to connect with their students through a screen. “After 25 years of teaching in-person, teaching virtually made me nervous,” said Jennifer Knipe, a kindergarten teacher at Carver Academy in Cerritos. “I was concerned about connecting with my students but was surprised at how smoothly the first day went. My students engaged with me and each other.” Across the school district, students

are actively learning from teachers on a set schedule as if they are sitting in class. That is the goal of the ABC Virtual Academy, bringing the classroom to the student through Google Classroom with video conferencing through Google Meet or Zoom. “The goal of the ABC Virtual Academy is to do what we do best – teach our students – albeit in non-traditional ways,” said Dr. Valencia Mayfield II, Assistant Superintendent of Academic Services. “There were countless hours of careful thought put into every facet of the Virtual Academy, from curriculum to student engagement. We had to reconsider how we deliver education while meeting the high expectations of our students and families.” Students engage in learning each day of the week. On Wednesdays, students login for attendance and work independently on assignments, projects, or watch pre-recorded lessons. Tutoring is assigned to students who need extra support. While students are learning, teachers are also engaged in professional development as they continue to learn about the best ways to teach online. “I’m so proud of our teachers, support staff, principals, and co-administrators for the hard work they’ve put into creating a great experience for our students,” said Dr. Sieu. “We know there will be bumps in the road, but we’ve done our best to make sure those are few and far between.”

FERNANDO CHACON KICKS OF RUN FOR MONTEBELLO USD

AUGUST 28, 2020

FLU SHOTS NOW AVAILABLE AT CVS Two-thirds of Americans say they plan to get a flu shot this year; 54 percent planning on getting shot earlier.

August 25, 2020 - With the ongoing health impacts of COVID-19 on local communities, CVS Health is reminding the public that it is more important than ever to stay current with vaccinations and other routine health care needs. By getting a flu shot this fall and taking other proactive measures to improve general health and immunity, individuals and families can protect themselves against FERNANDO CHACON with supporters of his campaign for Montebello Unified seasonal flu, help safeguard the overall School District. Chacon is long-time appointed commissioner on MUSD Personnel health of the community and minimize the impact on health care resources. Commission. Photo courtesy Chacon campaign. According to a survey commissioned by CVS Health[1] and conducted among a general population of U.S. consumers, the impact of COVID-19 is significantly influencing individuals’ likelihood to get a flu shot this season. Results have shown that consumers’ intention to get vaccinated has been increasing month over month, with 66 percent of those surveyed in July saying they definitely or likely will get a flu shot this season, compared to 34 percent of those surveyed in January 2020. In addition, 54 percent of consumers surveyed indicated that they plan to get their immunization earlier than last year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that individuals make plans to get vaccinated early in the fall, before flu season begins, and ideally no later than the end of October. “We know our patients and customers are doing everything they can to keep their families as healthy as possible, while minimizing potential exposure to the flu and COVID-19,” said Jon Roberts, Chief 6 Los Cerritos Community News - LosCerritosNews.net To advertise call 562-407-3873 Operating Officer, CVS Health. “Because it can take two weeks for the vaccine to build immunity, we encourage all of our patients to get their shot in September or

early October, before flu season peaks.” Flu shots are now available at the nearly 10,000 CVS Pharmacy and approximately 1,100 MinuteClinic locations across the country. Both CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic, the retail health clinic of CVS Health inside select CVS Pharmacy and Target stores, offer convenient options for people of all ages to get their flu shot, seven days a week with expanded evening and weekend hours. “Getting your flu shot is a great way to be proactive about your health and the health of your community this year,” said Angela Patterson, DNP, FNP-BC, NEABC, FAANP, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer, MinuteClinic and Vice President, CVS Health. “It protects both the individual and those around them who may be more vulnerable to serious complications from the flu, such as infants and young children, older adults, and people with certain chronic health conditions.” This year, the company is taking additional steps to help patients and colleagues feel safe during the entire immunization process. All patients must wear a face covering and will have their temperature taken prior to the immunization. Pharmacists and MinuteClinic providers administering vaccines will wear personal protection equipment (PPE) and will observe enhanced cleaning protocols. Patients may schedule an immunization appointment with a MinuteClinic provider at MinuteClinic.com, or check the website to see if walk-in appointments are available in their area. Walk-in appointments are also welcome at CVS Pharmacy throughout flu season. Starting in September, CVS Pharmacy patients will also be able to make vaccination appointments with a pharmacist by visiting CVS.com, theAUGUST CVS app, or by 7, 2020 texting FLU to 287898. They also will be able to complete a digital intake form prior to their visit to limit in-person contact at the time of vaccination.

NASH RAMBLER with a big block chevy motor complete with "wheely bars" was the hit of the 2019 Bellflower Noon Lions Car Show. 2020 was postponed to October.

BY TAMMYE MCDUFF As is the case with most, cities across the Southland are re-thinking and reinventing special events for the year 2020 and as of the revised Safer at Home Order issued on August 12, 2020, by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health, all events and gatherings, unless specifically allowed by the order, are considered higher risk type activities and continue to be prohibited. Special event considerations on Bellflower calendar will be monitored for feasibility and planning purposes as the year progresses. Bellflower Boulevard Car Show cohosted by the Noon Lions Club and the City of Bellflower, was originally scheduled for September 26th. The Noon Lions Car Show committee as of now, and only if permitted by Health Order directives is focusing on an alternate smaller car show event utilizing the new parking garage in downtown. Potential dates include Saturday October 10th or Saturday, October 24th. The committee last met on August 3rd to discuss options further and confirm that no changes have been made to the current health directives. A final decision has yet to be confirmed. Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast hosted by Kingdom Causes and the ministerial association is still set for October 6th, with the City awaiting potential updates to

the health order. Additional events such as The Joint Service Club Luncheon and the Chamber of Commerce Trick or Treat event are also awaiting updates. Veterans Memorial Dedication event will take place on November 11th as planned, as is the Kids Christmas Party held at Simms Park December 12th. The Bellflower oath of office and city council reorganization is set for December 14th and the outgoing Mayor’s ceremony will still be held January 1, 2021. Bellflower Christmas Tree Lighting scheduled for December 4th has not yet been cancelled and the Staff is coordinating City and Bellflower Boulevard decorations. However staff is discussion alternatives to the Tree Lighting Ceremony, since a large scale event may be restricted. BRAVO Awards is currently still scheduled to be held February 4, 2021, however could change in the light of potential updates to county health orders, Planning for BRAVO typically begins in mid July, offering a significant challenge to the planning committee. These updates are current as of the last council meeting held August 24th and is the sixth related revision to city event planning during the CoVID pandemic. The City council approved deferring a decision on special event budget changes until January 2021.

PASSINGS La Mirada Resident Betty De Cuffa La Mirada resident Betty De Cuffa passed on August 10, 2020; Betty turned 88 that day.

Creating Habits Since 1969

The original Habit Charburger with onion rings. The Habit is located in the 183rd Plaza.

BY TAMMYE MCDUFF Southern California loves to eat and we have a variety of places from drive through and casual to dining in and elegant. But as we struggle with our ‘new normal’ society, finding a great place to sit and enjoy the company of friends and family can be challenging. One favorite eatery is The Habit Burger Grill. One bite of their juicy Charburger and suddenly you’re in Santa Barbara, California, 1969. After all, it was in that picturesque, coastal Southern California town, that the original Habit Burger Grill opened its doors. Soon after, a young employee and his enterprising older brother struck out on a mission to provide a great burger at a great price. Borrowing money from their mom, the brothers purchased a modest restaurant nestled on Goleta Beach. In pursuit of a new standard, the brothers partnered with a nearby baker for daily fresh buns, and grilled them alongside perfectly seasoned beef until they were warm and toasty. And, of course, they installed a stainless steel charbroiler with a cast-iron grill designed to sear smoky flavors into every burger placed upon its fiery grates. Once

they earned a reputation for serving the tastiest burgers on the coast, the brothers turned their attention to beach-inspired recipes like fresh-grilled ahi and linecaught tuna; a chicken sandwich topped with crisp bacon and velvety avocado; and crisp salads made to order. Never eaten at one of their restaurants, I opted for one of the original combos, a Charburger, with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, pickets and mustard on a toasted bun, with a side order of onion rings. At first bite I was hooked, the burger was stacked and definitely worth the price. The meat was grilled to my specifications and it was juicy. They have several sides to choose from, French fries and onion rings or you can opt for a healthier option of sweet potato fries, tempura green beans or a side Caesar salad. The menu also offers gluten free options. One bite of a Charburger will transport you to a simpler time where ocean breezes are cool, palm trees sway in the summer air, and the Beach Boys were the band to listen to and California is back to being the Golden State once again. The Habit is located in 183rd Plaza at 11257 183rd St, Cerritos. You can order and dine in, call in a takeout or order online.

GAHR HIGH, ALONG WITH OTHER AREA SCHOOLS, FACE COMMON PROBLEMS ONCE SPRING APPROACHES BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER As the high schools of the ABC Unified School District have already started, the main common theme continues to be apparent for the athletic directors, which is the transportation of athletes to road events. Although there are no athletic events until December, at the earliest, and students will be doing online schooling for now, schools don’t have to worry about budgeting for transportation. But with the area ABCUSD high schools competing in as many as 17 sports from early March to possibly late June, plus competitive cheer being active during that time, Gahr High athletic director Greg Marshall wasn’t alone in expressing his concerns about getting the athletes to the games once he saw the new 2020-2021 athletic calendar the CIF-Southern Section put out on July 20. “My first reaction was how are we going to get all the busses for all these trips at one time,” Marshall said. “Because right now, even with the regular schedule, there are some days that we have to charter out a bus, or busses aren’t available. And now with three [high] schools all playing double the sports almost…I don’t know how it’s going to happen.” To alleviate some of the transportation

issues, Marshall added that the athletic personnel thought about not playing all levels or maybe the lower levels playing strictly the San Gabriel Valley League schedules. “There are a lot of things we need to take into consideration,” Marshall continued. “It’s not just that [some sports are] playing later [in the season]. But there are a lot of other things that are happening. It’s going to be tough.” Marshall recently was talking with Gerardo Perez and Rey Sanchez, the varsity baseball and softball coaches respectively, and the three were discussing the possibility of the lower levels playing only on Saturdays with the parent’s driving their sons or daughters to the games. He went on to say that there are a “100 different scenarios to try to figure this thing out”. “I know what we can’t do,” Marshall said. “ We can’t go in and play all the games and do all the stuff we normally do because the funding won’t be there and the [ABC Unified School] district’s going to have to come through and the district is going to be low on their budget. It’s just complicated.” Marshall’s second concern was going to be the fundraising that all the sports do and if the school can afford to play a certain sport or two. He added that the fundraising goes towards the improvements of the facilities. “All that money makes it so we can function and do as much as we do,” Marshall said. “Once the COVID-19 [began], we weren’t able to raise any money, and the kids aren’t going to raise money. They’re not going to go through their parents and say, ‘hey, we need to do some fundraising’ when there’s no activity or participation in sight. It’s going to be tight.” Marshall is also the school’s head football coach and will be entering his 18th

season once the season, hopefully, kicks off in January. He said that football-wise, the delay in everything is not that big of a deal. “If everything goes well, we will have enough time to have our kids get ready,” he said. “But I have to say, I was thinking about only playing nine games instead of ten this year because we haven’t had the full year of conditioning and weight training. We had to drop Mayfair because there’s no Week Zero. So, I have to figure out if we’re going to fill our bye.” The original schedule had the Gladiators playing four straight road games, then a home game before taking a week off. Upon returning from its bye week, Gahr would begin SGVL action at Downey High. He said that because the league is tough, his team might need that week off to recover anyway before the Downey game. Marshall said a nine-game schedule with that week off might be good just to save on the cost of transportation and paying the officials and to help balance the budget. Staying with the football theme, which may also be the same for other sports, is the topic of some players leaving Gahr for various reasons, one of which is the parents not wanting their son or daughter to play once athletics resume. Marshall still doesn’t have a grasp on some of his better players not returning. “Whose parents are going to let their kids play,” he asked. “You don’t know. I know there’s already been some movement of kids because of situations. We did a call-out to all the coaches on what kids aren’t coming back and they said, ‘well, take these kids off the list. Their parents aren’t going to let them play’. I get it. There’s a lot of inventory to do when we go back. If I had a full squad, I definitely would have played 10 [games].” Unlike most high schools Gahr currently doesn’t have anyone who coaches two sports in the same season. In fact, Marshall is seeking someone to coach boys and girls tennis as the former boys head coach Dave Thompson retired due to COVID-19 and former girls head coach Colleen Phong went back to school or sought employment elsewhere. Because the CIF-SS has compacted it’s 2020-2021 calendar into just a fall season and a winter season, both boys and girls tennis will be played in the spring. “Ideally, you want the same coach because the girls and the boys work together and practice at the same facility,” Marshall said. “Now, you almost have to have two [head coaches]. We have a couple of people in mind, but we’re still so far away I didn’t want to move too soon.” One area that should not be a problem at Gahr, especially in the late winter months heading into the spring will be the use of its gymnasium, which has three full-size courts. Marshall said he recently told his coaches they were spoiled because the last practice for badminton, basketball, volleyball or wrestling can start at 4:00 or 5:00 whereas a lot of schools begin their

"Right now, even with the regular schedule, there are some days that we have to charter out a bus, or busses aren’t available. And now with three [high] schools all playing double the sports almost…I don’t know how it’s going to happen.”

last practice at 6:00 or 7:00. “I’m not too worried about that because I do have three floors and we’ve been fortunate because our kids don’t really have to practice that late,” he said. “But maybe this year they do. Our guys work really well together and actually, I don’t even schedule them the gym. They get together and work on it. Then if there’s any issues, they tell me. But most of the time they figure it out so they could maximize their time.” As far as the feedback from the athletes, coaches and other personnel, Marshall says it has been mixed. Some coaches are not too crazy about coming back too soon. But the longtime athletic director insists that athletics need to come back to Gahr. Other coaches have been asking why they can’t come back right now while more have said they can wait. For the coaches that don’t want to come back, Marshall says he respects their decisions and knows that they will come back at some point. “They’re not pushing the envelope,” he continued. “When the county says we’re going to come back under new circumstances…some high schools are a little earlier than others. That’s their deal. We’re going strictly by the county health recommendations.” Marshall also said that most of his football players haven’t been too vocal when it comes to returning back to school to practice, condition or lift weights. In fact, he admits the players have found ways to find their own weights. Others decided to get together at various locations to throw the football around. “For the kids, they’re resilient and they’re fine,” Marshall said. “They just want to know when. I don’t even think they care [about the situation]. Now that they know it’s December, January…now that’s all they want to know; that they’re going to be able to play. Not knowing, I think, was the thing that was really hard on them.” For the league, the six athletic directors have been working for the past month on scheduling league events, according to Marshall, and making sure they maximize the necessary practice times and games that everyone needs. He also said the district athletic directors have also been meeting about the criteria on how to come back and what it’s going to look like when they come back.

LA MIRADA

Continued from page 1 contact La Habra and the developer to pay for the mitigation funds. The project site is the Westridge Golf Club, which is adjacent to Beach Boulevard and adjacent to the existing Westridge Plaza shopping center. The Westridge Golf Club was developed along with the Westridge residential community to the south pursuant to the adopted La Habra Hills Specific Plan. The currently proposed Rancho La Habra Specific Plan proposes to remove the 151-acre project site from the La Habra Hills Specific Plan and develop the existing golf course with 402 residential dwelling units, including 277 single-family homes and 125 multifamily residences, along with either 20,000 square feet of commercial development (e.g., specialty grocery, restaurant, or general retail uses) or an additional 46 multi-family dwelling units. Also proposed are open space areas that would include public parks and private recreational areas, a community center, small amphitheater, habitat conservation areas, passive recreational uses including trails, wildlife viewing, picnic areas and tot lots on the approximately

151-acre site. In addition, the applicant is requesting the California Department of Fish and Wildlife release and relocates existing deed restrictions established on the project site. With respect to the mitigation at intersections and along roadways under the jurisdiction of the cities of Fullerton, Buena Park, La Mirada, and Caltrans, under CEQA, a shared monetary contribution is being considered. However, these cities and Caltrans do not have a mitigation fund program in place for improvements to which the proposed project would contribute sufficient traffic and significant impacts. Therefore, because the city of La Habra has no authority to implement the recommended traffic improvements, impacts remain significant and unavoidable. Hawks Point representative Christine Cook, “No one in our community wants more traffic. We want to preserve our open spaces. The extra traffic that would be dumped into the area will be an added strain on our roads and highways, and we don’t want to be paying for this problem. Currently I have to wait to get out of my community, due to the current traffic and high speed.”

CENTRAL BASIN

Continued from page 1 agency’s general manager. Rojas brings immediate credibility to the agency with experience in over $400 million in public works projects including stormwater, information technology infrastructure, new construction and facilities modernization program management. He also brings experience in public sector governance logging nearly ten years working with four school boards. With Rojas assisting, the group wasted no time, immediately moving Central Basin into profitability, reorganizing the agency and implementing a sweeping freeze of fourteen positions effective Monday August 17. The move will save CB $1.8 million for the 20-'21 budget cycle. With the cuts, the budget went from a multi-million dollar deficit to a $113,000 profit, immediately placing the agency in compliance with debt coverage ratios, something that has not been achieved in years. Proponents of Central Basin will be quick to point out that a biennial election expense of $1.7 million is included in the ’20-’21 budget expenses. HMG-CN confirmed with the Los An-

geles County Registrar Recorder’s office that the expenses are indeed every two years. Without that expense in ’21-’22, the agency will earn a profit of at least $875,000, and as much as $1.5 million, which should silence critics of the Commerce-based agency. “We had far too many upper-level managers, some were making over $150,000; sales are flat, it was time to reorganize,” said Vice President Art Chacon,” but we could never reorganize because of Oskoui and other appointed directors, it took five elected directors to make Central Basin profitable.” Indeed, and many of the same high paid employees sided with Oskoui and locked certain directors out for months, changing their entry cards without notice while not allowing them to conduct regular business. According to Transparent California, in 2018 Finance Director Andrew Hamilton’s total pay, including benefits, was over $207,000. Engineering Director Jacqueline Kootz earned nearly $179,000. The former Director of Human Resources Dana Hidalgo, whose job is now occupied by Naja Braddock, earned over $161,000; Director of Water Resources Tammy Hierily earns $152,000; Conservation Manager Sandy Plimpton earns $155,000; Dorette Lambey and Peggy Williams, who both work for Hamilton, earns $133,000 and $118,000 respectively. Most of the positions were frozen on Aug 21. And the revenue could increase. In subsequent days, the board will also re-evaluate the newly implemented $2 Fixed Meter Charge per retail connection that would have provided over $635,000 in annual revenue to the District. Certain customers of the District, including Oskoui’s employer, the city of Downey, have filed a lawsuit against the District fighting the meter charge which was a blatant conflict since Oskoui, the assistant city manager of Downey, led the charge to implement the increase. With agencies such as the MWD, Pico Water, and many others implementing over 5% increases on their customers - Pico Water has implemented a 13% increase - the board hopes that the cities will drop their lawsuit and accept the charge. With the recent revelation, as first reported by HMG-CN, that the Los Angeles County D.A. is reviewing allegations against Oskoui for incompatible offices triggered by his conflict of interest, that could pressure the other cities to drop the lawsuit and give over $630,000 in revenue to Central Basin. CB Board President Leticia Vasquez commented on the hiring of Rojas, “After an extensive review of thirty candidates, the board narrowed the pool of candidates to eight. We spent two weeks interviewing the candidates and selected Dr. Alejandro Rojas as the next general manager to lead Central Basin. Dr. Rojas comes to our agency with over 25 years of working in government with expertise in public finance. His professional career has allowed him to work with the many diverse stakeholders in our service area including labor leaders, elected officials at the state, federal, regional and local levels and more importantly our community leaders. We believe it’s what Central Basin needs. ” Dr. Rojas told HMG-CN, “I am excited about the opportunity to utilize my diverse work experience to bring stability to the CBMWD by working collaboratively with the Board, purveyors, cities, private and mutual water companies. During this transition, our ability to provide water services will not be affected and we look forward to continuing to provide clean water to the communities we serve.”

SoCalGas Awards $230,000 in Scholarships

Los Cerritos Community News - LosCerritosNews.net

Downtown Downey Rebrands, Changes Name STAFF REPORT Downtown Community Benefit District Downey has hired Zapwater Communications to kick off a new social media campaign to bolster a new website and social media channels in support of the association’s recently developed ‘District @ Downey’. The website, www.thedistrictatdowney.com, went live August 25th. District @ Downey, a name intended to convey the downtown commercial dis-

STAFF REPORT Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced the company will award 60 students from Southern and Central California scholarships totaling $232,000. Recipients were evaluated on academic achievement, community engagement, and an essay about California’s clean energy future. This year, 86 percent of scholarship recipients were minority students. “At SoCalGas, we believe that a welleducated workforce is essential for a vital and economically healthy community. That’s why we are proud to contribute to the education of students pursuing higher education through our annual scholarship program,” said Andy Carrasco, vice president of strategy and engagement, and chief environmental officer at SoCalGas. “Helping students prepare for their professional careers is part of our commitment toward supporting the communities we serve.” SoCalGas partnered with more than thirty community and non-profit organizations to identify this year’s recipients. Graduating high school students attending a vocational school, technical school or community college will receive $1,000, while transferring community college students and high school graduates attending an accredited fouryear college or university will receive $5,000. Yolanda Carrion, a graduate from South East High School in South Gate who will attend the University of Southern California this fall said, “I am a first-generation student planning to major in Public Policy at the University of Southern California. I am eager to begin to help address the social justice issues that plague my community. For now, it is as a student and in the future I hope as a community organizer. I am thankful for the new opportunities SoCalGas has awarded me and the continued support from my friends and family.” Another scholarship recipient, Hailey Gough, said, “I attended Ernest Righetti High School. I will be attending the California State University of Fullerton. As of now, my major remains undeclared. Although I do not yet know what career path I will pursue, I am thinking of working in the sports industry. To me, this scholarship shows that hard work does not go unnoticed, and that consistent effort will eventually earn recognition. To my family, this scholarship serves as reimbursement for all the support and resources they have put into me and my successes. As I begin my college career and choose the profession I want to pursue, this scholarship will help support my goals and remind me that constant persistence results in success.” In addition to providing academic

scholarships, SoCalGas supports technology-based learning in science, engineering, and math at schools across the company’s service territory. Last year, the company provided more than $1.5 million in grants to hundreds of educational organizations in Central and Southern California. For more information about SoCalGas' charitable giving, please visit the 2019 Community Giving Report. Since its launch in 2001, SoCalGas’ scholarship program has provided more than $2.7 million in scholarship funding to more than 2,500 students.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Affinia Default Services, LLC, as the duly appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded 03/16/2007 as Document No.: 20070592853, of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of Los Angeles County, California, executed by: MARIA ANTONIETTA LINKEVITCH, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN, as Trustor, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable in full at time of sale by cash, a cashier's check drawn by a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state). All right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and state, and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. Sale Date & Time: 09/15/2020 at 10:00 AM Sale Location: Behind the fountain located in Civic Center Plaza, 400 Civic Center Plaza, Pomona, CA 91766 The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 14522 SAN DIEGUITO DR, LA MIRADA, CA 90638-4326 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 in an “AS IS” condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $482,077.73 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site, www.nationwideposting.com, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9551-3631. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.
