L.A. County Supervisors Approve $1.4 million for UCLA Health Mobile Stroke Unit BY BRIAN HEWS

FOURTH DISTRICT Supervisor Janice Hahn in front of a Mobile Stroke Unit that allows medical professionals to diagnose and treat strokes in the field.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn launched the Mobile Stroke Unit in 2018 aimed at responding to stroke-related emergency calls in Cerritos, Artesia, Bellflower, Lakewood, Paramount, Signal Hill, Hawaiian Gardens, Norwalk, La Mirada and the area of unincorporated Whittier. And the Supervisors reently approved another $1.4 million in funding so it can continue operating through 2021. A Mobile Stroke Unit is a specialized ambulance equipped with a portable CT scanner that allows medical professionals to diagnose and treat strokes in the field. By eliminating debilitating delays in treat-

ment, mobile stroke units can save lives and prevent or reduce the long-term brain damage and disability associated with strokes. The region where the Mobile Stroke Unit will operate has one of the county’s highest levels of stroke-related incidents. In the past year, Los Angeles County Fire has responded to 818 stroke-related calls in the nine cities where the unit will operate, with 221 of those calls coming from Cerritos alone. The Mobile Stroke Unit is part of a pilot program launched by UCLA Health and funded by the Arlene and Henry Gluck Foundation and the County of Los Angeles.

LAKEWOOD hosts drive-in including local restaurants who offer special discounts with drive-in ‘car hops.’ The Rotary Club of Lakewood serves popcorn and snacks for all vehicles. $10 per car for Lakewood Residents and $15 per car for non-residents.

BY TAMMYE MCDUFF Over the last several years most cities have added family movie night to their lineup of summer activities. There may have been the addition of food trucks, live music or games for the kids. Due to the pandemic going to the movies has become a much missed activity. But don’t give up; the city of Lakewood is bringing back the Saturday night drive-in movies. Innovative cities have transitioned from crowded parks to setting up massive parking lot screens inspired by the old fashioned American drive-in movie. The logistics might be a challenge, but it is quickly becoming the best reimagined family activity ever. Spearheaded by Lakewood city employees and brought to life by Lakewood Shopping Center staff, the drive-in movie experience is a message to the Lakewood and surrounding communities that even during the pandemic, you can still plan to have an entertaining evening with friends and family. Annette Norwood, Sr. Marketing Manager at Lakewood Center stated that the community has been very supportive during the pandemic, “When the Center was completely closed down, there was

still the notion that we could offer our summer events. But when re-openings just kept being pushed further back, we realized that we needed to shift our attentions into full creative mode.” In addition to the movies, local restaurants are offering special discounts with drive-in ‘car hops’ and Rotary Club of Lakewood, has popcorn and snacks covered for all vehicles. “We are actually offering goodie bags to all the families that attend,” said Juan Arreola, President, Lakewood Rotary Club. Mayor Todd Rogers added, “Everybody just needs a break. This has been a very long past few months, and who knows how much longer this will continue. Here is away for the City to host an event, and have some fun in a very safe and responsible way.” Saturday, September 5th movie is ‘Toy Story 4’. Each car will receive a free goody bag provided by Assembly Member Anthony Rendon and Applebee’s. Registration for Lakewood residents open on September 12th, for ‘The Princess Bride’ which will be held September 19th. The fee is $10 per car for Lakewood Residents and $15 per car for non-residents. To register visit www.lakewoodcity.org/ecatalog

Proposal to Rename Downey Chamber in Honor of Councilman BY TAMMYE MCDUFF The Downey Chamber of Commerce building has received a new name as the ‘David Gafin Downey Chamber of Commerce’ in honor of former Mayor and longtime council member. Consistent with the past practice of naming city facilities for past council members who have made considerable impacts to the community by length of service and commitment to the community that has made a positive impact, the Downey City Council has been asked to consider this request. Gafin served on the Downey City Council from December 2004 to December 2012 and was instrumental in many key actions that have been beneficial to the community, including the creation of the Rio San Gabriel Dog Park, bringing Porto’s Bakery and a farmers market to Downtown Downey.

Winning his seat on the Council, Gafin immediately put his accounting expertise to work and was instrumental in Downey growing their financial reserves. When the global financial crisis hit in 2008, the City was able to ride it out without disruption of programs or services. Actively, involved in the community, Gafin volunteered extensively with the Downey Chamber of Commerce as a board member, president, and lifetime ambassador. He was also a past president of Gangs Out of Downey and a two time past president of Downey Los Amigos Kiwanis. He was a longtime supporter of the Downey Rose Float Association and Downey Theatre. Gafin lost his battle to cancer in June of this year, he was 65. A plaque, signage and related ceremony will be forth coming.

EXPERT TIPS TO MAXIMIZE YOUR VICTORY GARDEN

Q

VICTORY GARDENS were common during World War I and II when people were encouraged to grow their own foods to supplement their household needs and open the food supply for the troops. People would grow fast-yield crops in virtually any open soil, whether that be on their properties or in community gardens.

uarantine and social distancing have inspired renewed interest in gardening and home cooking. These two activities go hand-in-hand as people grow their own produce and herbs that can be plucked just steps from the kitchen where they can whip up tasty creations. In fact, this movement revived the concept of victory gardens, which help people become more self-reliant during challenging times. What is a victory garden? Victory gardens were common during World War I and II when people were encouraged to grow their own foods to supplement their household needs and open the food supply for the troops. People would grow fast-yield crops in virtually any open soil, whether that be on their properties or in community gardens. Victory gardens are trending in summer 2020 because people want to positively utilize their space while spending time at home. In fact, more than half (55%) of American adults are gardening or caring for their lawn during the COVID-19 outbreak, according to a survey of 1,000 nationally representative U.S. adults by Wakefield Research for Miracle-Gro. Growing a victory garden with your family is a wonderful way to bond, enjoy fresh air and lower your grocery bill. With the surge in cooking at home, many Americans are discovering the joy of using fresh items from their gardens. Two-thirds (67%) of adults are growing or plan to grow edible plants, including vegetables (52%), herbs (33%) and fruits (31%), according to the survey. How to get the most out of your victory garden Proper care will help ensure a bountiful harvest from your victory garden. Miracle-Gro's Sara Eff, scientist in gardens at R&D, offers these helpful tips for getting the most out of some of the most popular garden plants: Add supports: As garden plants grow, many need a little support. This helps keep leaves out of the dirt, prevents many diseases and strengthens against the elements. For example, pepper plants should be staked to help support the main stem. Tomatoes benefit from a cage to protect the fruitbearing branches. Plants like peas, beans

and cucumbers love to climb a trellis, plus it makes it easier to pick them. Nourish well: Like a multivitamin for your garden, you may consider supercharging your plants with Miracle-Gro Performance Organics Edibles Plant Nutrition Granules made from a mix of natural and organic ingredients. Specially formulated for growing tomatoes, vegetables, herbs and fruits, you simply apply dry and water in to start feeding. This can help plants grow faster, stronger and promotes higher yields than unfed plants. Water wisely: Be aware of precipitation and how much Mother Nature is providing. Use a water gauge to help if needed. Gardens need about 1 inch of water per week, but you may need to supply more depending on heat and drought conditions. Keep in mind, deeper watering every few days is ideal rather than quick sprinkles, with the early morning hours best to avoid evaporation. To pinch or not to pinch: Small unnecessary stems and leaves can be pruned or hand pinched to stimulate growth upward. For example, tomato suckers are small leaves off the main stem. Any below the lowest set of flowers can be removed or pinched off. Be sure to research proper trimming per plant variety as each one is unique. For example, when a basil plant blooms at the top, you pinch it off so that the leaves stay intact. However, you would never pinch tomato flowers because that's what turns into fruit. Second harvests: With a bit of smart planning, you can enjoy multiple harvests that provide fresh foods into fall. Early maturing crops like lettuce, radishes and beets can be replanted mid to late summer and provide another round of produce. For second plantings, choose fast-maturing, disease-resistant varieties of plants. For example, some leafy greens, such as kale, prefer cooler weather and can even survive frosts. Follow these simple steps and you'll be well on your way to growing your own victory garden. For additional gardening tips and planting advice, visit www.miraclegro.com.

SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH BY TAMMYE MCDUFF Let’s face it; no one was prepared for 2020. But we can take steps to try and be prepared for natural disasters and future lockdowns. National Preparedness Month [NPM] is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, there is no better way to be involved this September. This year’s theme is ‘Disasters Don’t Wait. Make Your Plan Today.’ It’s really not as complicated as it sounds and www.ready.gov has broken it down into four weeks. They also offer detailed step by step instructions on what you can do. This week, make a plan. Talk to friends and family about how you will communicate before, during and after a disaster. Make sure to update your plan based on local recommendations due to the coronavirus. Address issues such as shelter plans or evacuation routes. Make a list of all the items each family member will need. Fill out a family emergency plan and download the numerous family guides. Next week, start to build a kit. After an emergency you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having food, water and other supplies. Make sure your emer-

gency kit is stocked with items such as flashlights, first aid kit and additional emergency supplies and clothing. Gather supplies that will last for several days for everyone living in your home, don’t forget your pet’s needs, taken into consideration needs each person or pet may have in case you must evacuate quickly. Update your kit and supplies. Week three, prepare for disasters. Limit the impact that disasters may have on you and your family. Know the risk of disasters in your area and check your insurance coverage. Research ways on how to make your home stronger in the face of storms or other hazards and make necessary repairs as well as removing any dead landscaping that may prove hazardous. Learn how to act fast if you receive a local warning or alert. Now that you have everything ready, it is time to talk to the children about preparing for emergencies and what to do in case you are separated. Reassure them by providing information about how they can get involved, www.ready.gov has everything you need to know whether you are preparing your child, instructing you teenager on how to help or finding educational and recovery tools. Finally, contact your local City Hall to find out how they are preparing the city and how you can help. There really is no better time than now, to be prepared.

“Because of the heat we had out here, we had to play early games or late games,” he continued. “The gap and the game play sometimes take effect as well. But the teams we lost to were better teams. Sometimes you win them and sometimes you lose them.” The Punishers were quickly in a 2-0

nings. The Punishers wouldn’t score again until the bottom of the fifth inning when center fielder Alexa Diaz (Cerritos High) was walked on four pitches and Parriott singled and advanced on an error, allowing Diaz to score as well as Parriott.

BY LOREN KOPFF @LORENKOPFF ON TWITTER ST. GEORGE, UTAH-The Artesia Punishers 16-Under travel softball team was one of the hottest teams through the first two days of action in the American Fastpitch Association Southwestern Nationals in St. George, Utah. The Punishers, one of 32 teams in this age division to compete in the rare late-August event, won all three pool play games last Thursday and Friday by a difference of 34 runs. Once the playoffs began last Saturday night, it was a completely different story as the Punishers fell to the [La Habra] Southern California Athletics-Jendro/ Wayne 9-3. That was followed by a 7-2 setback to the [Chino Hills] California Bombers-AK in a game that finished beyond 12:30 this past Sunday morning. “I think, what happens in softball, is that when you get a team that’s red hot, they get turned up and they start playing,” said Artesia Punishers manager Jesus Mendoza. “Then when you get these long gaps before playing, sometimes you go cold and you have to pick up the heat A0424-Used 9/23/05 again and getOil back(Cerritos) into the rhythm.

“There were a lot of runners left in scoring position,” Mendoza said. “We had opportunities to get them in, but it just didn’t happen. There were a couple of times where we could have tagged up from third and it just didn’t happen. The girls tried their best; they did their best and left it on the field.” After the game, which started at 7:00 p.m., the Punishers had to relocate from Bloomington Park and make their way to Canyon Sports Complex for an elimination game that was scheduled to be played at 10:50. After a minor delay due to the length of the previous game, the Punishers again fell behind quick and couldn’t recover in the 7-2 loss. The Punishers yielded two runs in the top of the first inning, one in the second and four in the third. The lone tallies for the Punishers came in the bottom of the second inning when catcher Allyza Camacho (Warren High) was walked and courtesy runner Ariana Hernandez (Lakewood High) scored on a two-out single from Parriott. In the next inning, Sandoval led off with a base hit to left and with two outs, came home on a double from Camacho. In a span of roughly five and a half hours, the Punishers collected eight hits after getting 33 in the three pool play games. Last Thursday, the Punishers rallied from a 6-0 deficit after half an inning, a 7-3 deficit after an inning and a half and an 8-7 hole heading into the bottom of the third inning to escape with a 9-8 win over the [Gilroy] Suncats. In the bottom of the third, shortstop Lexi De Leon was walked, Camacho singled to center and pinch hitter Leiloni Pina (Cerritos High) singled to left to load the bases. After a strikeout, right fielder Angelina Mendoza was hit by a pitch and De Leon came home with the tying run. Following another strikeout, Jorgensen singled to right, allowing Camacho to score the winning run. Last Friday afternoon, the Punishers flexed their muscles to the tune of a 25-1 win over the Southern California Bash. Jorgensen and Sandoval each went three for five and drove in six runs while Camacho and Parriott each added a pair of hits. Jorgensen also pitched four innings of three-hit ball and struck out three. The Punishers wrapped up pool play action last Friday night with a 10-2 win over the (Salt Lake City) Bad To The Bone as they scored three times in the bottom of the second, fourth and fifth innings. Jorgensen went three for four

while seven other players all collected one hit. Haughey went six strong innings, allowing two hits and struck out half a dozen. The 44 runs scored in the three pool play games were the most by any 16-Under team and 12 more than the next team. “They came out wanting to play,” Mendoza said. “They played aggressively. Sierra Sandoval had a home run, Carla Hollins (Santa Monica High) had a home run, Taylor Parriott had a home run, and they just came out on fire. They were aggressive, they wanted to play, and they came out all gung ho to do it.” Because of the COVID-19 pandemic that began nearly half a year ago, this was the only Artesia Punishers team to have played in a tournament. The other teams couldn’t find one to get into because of the pandemic. Before the pandemic, the 16-Under team was slated to play in the Premier Girls Fastpitch Las Vegas Qualifier, the PGF Southern California Qualifier, a Surf City Tourneys event earlier in the summer and an USA Preps tournament, originally scheduled for Las Vegas but later moved to Utah, according to head coach Joseph Alvarez. The team was also in Mesquite, Nevada from July 24-26 at the C4 Summer Showcase where 20-25 colleges showed up. Coaches from Bryant and Stratton College, La Sierra University and Menlo College, to name a few, were on hand to look at some of the Punishers. The team went 1-1 in pool play action, then lost all three games out of the Gold bracket of the playoffs. The Punishers were one of 16 teams participating in the 16-Under division. “If [head coach] Joseph [Alvarez] would have not attempted to try to get the girls out there, those opportunities wouldn’t have been there for the girls,” Mendoza said. “I give a lot of credit to Joseph for pushing and getting these tournaments in.” But, as far as any form of a national tournament, the AFA Southwestern Nationals was the only one the Punishers were able to participate in. Mendoza applauded Alvarez for being driven to get the girls on the field. “It was very difficult,” Mendoza said. “We had a hard time finding practice facilities because of the whole COVID situation. We did find a couple in Buena Park; we started playing there and then they got closed down because of COVID. We did try to get some tournaments in in [Las] Vegas and Mesquite, Nevada. [But] those got cancelled out because of COVID. We tried to find friendlies when we could. We tried our best to get our girls out on the field to be seen and played and play the sport that they love.” Since March, just about everything has been out of normal, including the travel softball world in which your major national tournaments are held either in late July or early August. For a tournament of this magnitude, or any tournament for that matter, to be played in late August is unprecedented as most of August is relegated travel teams getting set up for the next season. Plus, the girls are already back in school. “It was difficult to try to plan this tournament because I knew it was going to go into school year,” Alvarez said. “But because the girls are determined to play, we decided to go ahead and play [in] it. The girls want to play. They don’t want to sit around, and knowing that this was the nationals, they felt they should go out and play.”

Champion, president and CEO of the California News Publishers Association. “Almost every recent survey shows that reliance on local news sources has grown over the last year. With the passage of AB 323, lawmakers have shown their faith in local news outlets as the most trusted resource for their communities, and we will continue to rise to fulfill this important need.” “I am hopeful Governor Newsom will sign AB 323 into law because he values the importance of bringing news to our citizens in California,” added Assemblywoman Rubio.

FOOD

Continued from page 1 confuse anyone.” Heart of Compassion in Montebello was the major donor of food goods, “This is just a blessing,” said Tietze, “I came here to partner with these folks today. We have been visiting different cities on a weekly basis and holding distributions at Hearts of Compassion twice a week at the local high school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We have just taken the two fishes and five loaves and been able to feed thousands of people in need.” Tietze added that on a normal month HOC gives out over 100,000 pounds of food in a month, but since the pandemic that number has risen to over 800,000 pounds of food. Mayor Rounds added that because the state has not fully re-opened and it’s residents are in-between stimulus checks and balancing school schedules, parents are really having to stretch those dollars, “ More people are eating at home, using more electricity, and if there was ever a time when our residents needed extra assistance, it’s now.” “We know what the need is for our community,” said Sandoval, “ We hear it every day, our parents are not receiving enough hours at work and are struggling

SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 to pay their bills, so we got together with these wonderful volunteers to give assistance to our families and help ease the burden a little bit.” Pastor Marvin Rodriquez, from City of Refuge in Pico Rivera has been working with Heart of Compassion for many years, “These are different times and it requires us to rise to a different level. We are accustomed to helping 100 families or so each week, but now we are serving over 1400 families weekly. The need is great. It is not a time to hide, or give into fear. It is time that we all need to step up and help one another.” If you or anyone you know is in need of assistance, Heart of Compassion is located at 600 S. Maple Avenue in Montebello and City of Refuge is located at 4623 Durfee Avenue in Pico Rivera. You can also reach out to both organizations through social media.

COVID VACCINE TRIALS COULD END EARLY SAYS FAUCI BY LIZ SZABO A COVID-19 vaccine could be available earlier than expected if ongoing clinical trials produce "overwhelmingly positive results," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, this week. Two clinical trials of 30,000 volunteers are expected to conclude by December, but Fauci said the Data and Safety Monitoring Board, an independent board, has the authority to end the trials weeks early if interim results are overwhelmingly positive or negative. Fauci said he trusts the members of the board, who are not government employees, and are not influenced by politics. “If you are making a decision about the vaccine, you’d better be sure you have very good evidence that it is both safe and effective,” Fauci said. “I’m not concerned about political pressure.” Three COVID-19 vaccines are testing in U.S. Two began in late July but have enrolled only 15,000; another started this week, more are slated too to start this month. Dr. Robert Redfield , director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in trials of this size, researchers will know if a vaccine is effective after as few as 150 to 175 infections. “It may be surprising, but the number of events that need to occur is relatively small,” Redfield said. Fauci said people can trust the process, because all the data that outside monitors use to make their decisions would be made public. “All of that has to be transparent,” Fauci said. “The only time you get concerned is if there is any pressure to terminate the trial before you have enough data on safety and efficacy.” Topol and other scientists have sharply criticized the FDA in recent weeks, accusing Dr. Stephen Hahn , the agency’s commissioner, of bowing to political pressure from the Trump administration , which has pushed the agency to approve COVID-19 treatments faster. Stopping trials early poses a number of risks, such as making a vaccine look more effective than it really is, Topol said.

NAVIGATING THE GIG ECONOMY

BY KATHY KRISTOF

While the government wrangles over pandemic relief, bills still need to be paid. Fast-cash side hustles can help. Here are somefast-cash side hustles, broken down by category. Animal care There are two main animal care sites: Rover and Wag. Wag specializes in dog walking. Rover lets you offer services as a dog walker, pet sitter and, in some cities, as a groomer. While both offer good work at reasonable hourly rates, Rover charges lower fees, allows freelancers to set their own rates, and pays within 48 hours. Citizen Shipper provides animal moving services for people who have purchased a pet from an out-of-town breeder, or who moved across country and had to leave their pets at home. The site allows shippers to bid on jobs they want, setting their own rates and collecting their own fees — usually in cash — on delivery.

Shopping Although Instacart and Shipt are better known, Dumpling is a far better option for people wanting to shop for others. The site essentially sets you up in your own business. You set your own rates and your availability, and determine what stores you’re willing to shop. When customers order through the app, Dumpling advances enough to pay the bill to your debit card. Customers are charged on delivery. You get paid by direct deposit within three days. Tutor It doesn’t matter whether your specialty is tutoring in math or music — online tutoring platforms are swamped with business and adding tutors as fast as they can. Some of the fastest-paying tutoring platforms include Wize , which will pay you on demand, and TutorMe , which pays via PayPal once a week. LessonFace, a platform that specializes in teaching language, acting and music, pays tutors within three days of completing a session.

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.
