LA County Supervisor Don Knabe speaks to the Cerritos Optimists Club.
Date: Wednesday September 15, 2010 Time: 6:30pm – 9:00pm Place: Albert O. Little Community Center 18750 Clarkdale Ave, Artesia, CA 90701
R.S.V.P today @ AAA Cerritos
Don Knabe, Los Angeles County Supervisor, long time Cerritos resident and member of the Cerritos Optimist Club, spoke to the group at their weekly morning meeting at Off Street Café in Cerritos. His wide ranging presentation touched on county, state and national issues as well a few thoughts about his home town. With typical humor, Don told the tale of a recent unsuccessful auto break-in at his home by a woebegone teenager who was, unsuccessfully, it appears, apprenticing under and older pro. “He got inside but wasn’t able to figure out how to open the child proof locks and escape”, said a bemused Knabe. Then there was the occasion of his visit to a physical therapist for a joint ailment who did not agree with his position on an issue and made his knee suffer accordingly. He noted that there were just a few weeks remaining on the current jobs portion of the federal ARRA funds and identi-
fied the thousands of jobs made possible through their use. Despite the overall despondency of the economy Don did note that negotiations with unions have been characterized by the fact that “communication has been very good” between all parties and there was an understanding of our precarious state by all. He fielded questions about local transportation, the statewide retirement system, the future of Cal Works, the possibility of a local pro football team and the likelihood of the Orange Line through Cerritos. Ever ebullient, Knabe looked to the future with optimism despite the undeniably rough road ahead. The Cerritos Optimist Club is a local service organization with a “friend of the Youth” motto and long list of local community projects to serve our children.

Rep. Sanchez discusses national recession at Cerritos Chamber luncheon By Jerry Bernstein Speaking before a luncheon meeting of the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce Sept. 2 at the Sheraton Cerritos Hotel, Rep. Linda Sanchez (D39th District) discussed the current recession, the roles small businesses play in any recovery, bills approved designed to help small businesses, immigration, and social security. She described the nation’s economic crisis as the worst recession since the Great Depression in the 1930’s. She said the key to climbing out of the recession is the nation’s small businesses that traditionally create two out of every three jobs in our country. “One of the biggest concerns small business owners tell me,” she said, “ is
that while people are spending money, they are spending a lot less than they did prior to the recession, forcing many of them to cut back.” Sanchez said Congress cannot stop this trend but it can eliminate some of the obstacles that get in business owners Ken Garcia (l-r) Theresa Promatico, Geoff Bolt, Steve Vencia, way. “You asked us to help and we Lana Leazer, and Chris Helderson at the luncheon. listened to you.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Mendoza urges Governor to sign bill banning employer use of credit checks Assembly Member Tony Mendoza’s (D-Norwalk) AB 482, which would ban employers from using consumer credit reports during the hiring process moved off the Assembly Floor. The bill is now headed to the Governor’s desk with a deadline for the Governor to sign it by Sept. 30. “A credit report is not a good indicator of a person’s trustworthiness or work ethic,” said Mendoza. “Many Californians are experiencing difficult times due to the economic downturn, the foreclosure crisis, and 12.4 percent unemployment. Now, more than ever, a credit report is an unfair lens through which to view job applicants.” AB 482 would ban the use of consumer credit reports in employment, unless certain criteria are met. First, the information in the credit report must be substantially job related, where the applicant or candidate for promotion would have access to money, trade
secrets, other assets, or confidential information. Second, the position sought is managerial, a sworn peace officer or other law enforcement, a position in the state Department of Justice, or if the position for which the information contained in the report is required to be disclosed by law or required to be obtained by the employer. This bill would not apply to people or businesses subject to compliance oversight by a state or federal regulatory agency. “Stopping people from becoming gainfully employed because of blemishes on their credit report is shameful,” said Assemblymember Mendoza. “This bill will simply remove an unnecessary barrier to employment for those seeking everyday work opportunities." Assemblymember Mendoza, a former teacher and current vice-chair of the California Latino Legislative Caucus, proudly serves the communities of Norwalk, Buena Park, Cerritos, Santa Fe Springs, Artesia, Hawaiian Gardens and portions of Whittier and Lakewood.

Artesia-Cerritos Lions Club pancake breakfast Oct. 2
Cerritos crime summary August 30 – September 5, 2010 Twenty-one Part I felony crimes were investigated by Cerritos Sheriff’s Station deputies last week, up from fourteen the previous week. Residential and vehicle burglaries along with vehicle thefts were up, commercial burglaries remained the same, and robberies dropped. There were 326 calls for service handled by patrol deputies, up from 264 the week before. The 2010 weekly average in calls for service is 300. GREAT NEWS! There were no robberies reported last week. Four residential burglaries were logged, compared to three the week before. One open window, two pried windows, and a sliding glass door forced open were used as entry points. One suspect was in custody. Taken were laptop computers, jewelry, cash, handguns, credit cards, passports, and cameras. The current 2010 weekly average in residential burglaries is 2.3. Two of the four crimes last week were attributed to the use of a pry tool against a sliding glass door or window. Rear windows and doors that are not properly secured are the easiest and the most frequent points of entry in residential burglaries. Even though you have locked these doors and windows, it may still be possible to pry them open due to movement both laterally and vertically from the frame. Make sure that you have the necessary hardware installed, such as locking pins or inserts in the frame to inhibit movement, and that you check each one before departing the residence. There were no commercial burglaries reported for the second consecutive week. The 2010 weekly average in com-
mercial burglaries is 2.5. Vehicle burglaries increased from two to twelve last week. High-volume commercial parking lots were involved in eleven and a residential neighborhood the location of the other. Ten of the vehicles were SUVs. Third-row seats (from SUVs), backpacks, a GPS unit, stereo components, purses, credit cards, cash, a duffel bag, and cash were missing. The new 2010 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is now 6.9. Remember, it is common knowledge that drivers will leave valuable items in the passenger compartment of their vehicles. This allows the would-be thief a “sure shot” when breaking into your car. They have the opportunity to see exactly what they want to take and will do so if you give them the chance. If you absolutely must have valuable items in the vehicle, make sure that they are locked in the trunk. If you do not have a trunk, take the property with you or leave it at home. Vehicle thefts increased from three to five last week. All five were from high-volume lots, including three from the area of the 605 Freeway and Alondra Boulevard. Three were SUVs, one a Honda, and the other a Toyota. The 2010 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 4.7. Even though we see more Hondas, Toyotas, and SUVs stolen compared to others, car thieves are not always as selective as you think and are often just looking for transportation. Consider a steering wheel locking device that serves as a good visual deterrent.

“Realize that God is Everywhere” Graduates of Formation Program Help in Others’ Spiritual Awakening By Elisabeth Deffner Jack Gonsalves had taught religious education for years, and for 15 years had been in charge of music ministry at his parish, Holy Family in Artesia. Agnes Jun, on the other hand—an immigrant from Korea by way of South America—was not fully comfortable with English, and felt as though she were lacking in knowledge of the Bible. But both Gonsalves and Jun—with their different backgrounds and different levels of familiarity with Catholic teachings and liturgy—experienced a spiritual reawakening through the Ignatian Spiritual Formation Program (ISFP) at Orange’s Loyola Institute for Spirituality. The Institute is not a traditional retreat house, but more of a resource center people can visit for classes and formation. Its mission is to accompany people in their journey toward a lifegiving relationship with God, self, and others, through experiential formation— and the ISFP is an important part of that. In the first year of the program— Phase I—students take a series of classes that give them a basic understanding of Ignatian spirituality. Those who wish to continue to Phase II undergo an experience of St. Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises—but instead of making a 30-day retreat in silence, the Exercises are spread out over the course of nine months, with students making a commitment to pray for an hour at home each day, and meet weekly with a spiritual director. Phase III is a practicum in which students gain experience offering spiritual direction. Those who graduate from the program become “associates”
of the Institute, offering spiritual direction to others. (The Institute also trains Spanish-speaking associates through the Equipo Latino Ignaciano.)

Loyola Institute for Spirituality Associates and Staff celebrate the Eucharist as part of their annual retreat weekend to reflect on their year of ministry together and to prepare for the coming year. This year's theme was "Discovering Your Personal Vocation.” Though each aspect of the program is valuable—and necessary to gain the knowledge and experience required of Institute associates—different facets of it hit home with different individuals. For Jun, for instance, Phase II was lifechanging. “I started seeing how God was loving me all this time,” says Jun, a parishioner at Holy Trinity in Glendale. “This program just makes you open your eyes, open your heart, to realize that God is everywhere—and especially with you…. You realize there’s so much grace, there’s so much peace.” Though Phase II touched Jun’s life and heart profoundly, it was also during

Gonsalves’s path was different. In the midst of a personal

crisis, he went on a week-long directed retreat. His spiritual director during the retreat suggested Gonsalves work with a spiritual director long-term, and referred him to the Institute. Once he visited the Institute, he learned about the IFSP, which was just getting off the ground. “I was in a place where I really needed, and I really wanted, to grow spiritually,” explains Gonsalves. “I feel like God led me the whole way from the crisis to the Institute, and going through that whole program of formation—and now being able to join the institute in providing service to the community.” Despite their extensive preparation, both Gonsalves and Jun express some amazement that they are now in the position of offering spiritual direction to others. They constantly witness the power of spiritual awakening. “It’s very moving to be a witness to what’s going on in people’s lives, to see the power of the Gospel coming to life in people,” says Gonsalves. “There [are] moments it move[s] me so much I [am] near tears [and have] to fight it back. It’s a whole new world for me.” “A lot of people have faith, but they don’t encounter Jesus in themselves,” adds Jun. “They have a lot of knowledge in their heads, but cannot feel it in their heart; this program made me realize how much Jesus was with me and loving me, and caring, and I wanted to help other people to have that kind of experience also.” She notes that she is a very different person now than she was before completing the program. Once shy, she now eagerly reaches out to others; once lonely, she now has a constant companion in the Lord. Once sad, she is filled with joy. She recently started an eightweek group prayer program at Yorba Linda’s St. Martin de Porres Church, in which participants follow the steps of the Spiritual Exercises, but taking just 20 or 30 minutes in individual prayer each day. Far from an overwhelming prospect, the group is an exciting undertaking that June speaks about warmly. “You receive so much peace in your heart,” she says. “I just want to help other people to feel the way I felt in that time.” And that’s exactly the sentiment that’s behind the Associates program. “Our hope is that all of our efforts together will lead to growth in holiness and mission, as we seek to give greater glory to God in all things,” says Father Stephen Corder, SJ, LIS executive director.

hat is Kaiten Sushi? Ask most people on the street and they won’t know. They might think it is some sort of sushi roll or dish like a Bento box. It is neither one of those. Kaiten Sushi style is sushi served by skilled chefs where plates of sushi are placed on a rotating conveyor belt that winds through the restaurant and moves slowly past every table and counter seat. Customers may place special orders, but most simply pick their selections from the steady stream of fresh sushi moving along the con-

market and the other is great attention to detail in the preparation and cooking.” Indeed, as we ate at Gatten, the quality and taste really came through. From the Maguro (Tuna) to the Hamachi (Yellowtail), to my favorite Sake (Salmon), the freshness of the sushi was
outstanding. And the price was right too, $2 per plate of sushi! “We want our customers to have the feeling of an affordable luxury, we are establishing a whole new restaurant industry with the keyword "handmade". This is a real rarity in today’s tough economic times that fish is directly
delivered from the markets daily, but Gatten’s experienced chefs demand it. Yamamoto says, “Delicious sushi only comes by a wonderful combination of high quality fish and workmanship by skilled chef of the first order.” As competitors give first priority to preparation and efficiency, Gatten Sushi adheres to the handmade culinary delight and service that allows the customers to enjoy their meals. And they do not hire just any sushi chefs for the job. “These are to sushi chefs from the heart of Japan, we spare no expense to bring our customers top-rate sushi chefs”. It is with this model that Gatten Sushi keeps growing. Established in 1986, they are now focusing on expansion of the business across the country region by region. “This is a different type of restaurant, we will continue to try new, innovative, and creative ideas.” Gatten Sushi is now open at the newly remodeled Landmark Square, 113061/2 South St. at the corner of South St. and Gridley near Lucille’s BBQ. Open for lunch and dinner. Their phone number is (562) 9240440. The entire community is invited to attend the Grand Opening on Monday September 20th at 11am.

While your neighbors may pull out all the stops decorating outdoors for Christmas, an over-the-top Halloween display can also earn you a place in neighborhood lore. The Halloween decor experts at online retailer SeventhAvenue.com offer some tips to consider as you create a spooky playground to impress the trick-or-treaters: * Know your audience. It might be a good idea to match the level of scary in your Halloween decorations with the age of the children you expect to come trick-or-treating. For younger children, think fun. Older kids might appreciate a good scare. * Choose a theme. Halloween is the perfect holiday for creativity, so when it comes to the front yard, don't limit yourself. Decorations that center around a theme are the most impactful and will delight children when walking to your doorstep. You could choose something as simple as a graveyard theme, leading visitors through a path of gravestones and creaky gates, with zombie decorations for good measure. Or use ideas from your favorite scary movie. If you need ideas, try browsing outdoor Halloween decor at online retailers like www.seventhavenue.com. * Direct traffic. Now that you've chosen a theme, think about how you want your guests to experience it, beginning with the sidewalk and ending with your front door. For example, if you went with a Dracula theme you could lead your visitors to the front door with lights that resemble chandelier candles. Solar lanterns could also be used to light the path, as they won't leave you burning through batteries or electricity. Well lit signs could also be used to lead visitors through a scavenger hunt through your front yard.
* Dress the part. To make your theme really work for you, wear a costume to the door that goes along with it. It's a great way to get in touch with your inner child and to thrill the kids in your neighborhood. * Safety first. While it's great to create the scariest yard on the block, you should also make sure it's safe. Walkways and hazards like ponds or stairs should be well lit. * Get help from nature. The trees in your yard make a great place to hang spooky decorations. Use old grass clippings to give a spookier feel to zombies and gravestones. You can use leaves as stuffing paper for bags and figurines, filling them with life. * Treats matter. We all know the number one reason kids look forward to Halloween is the bounty they'll bring home from a long night of trick-or-treating. Considering that everyone else will give out candy, make your house more memorable by giving a toy related to your theme. Or, give glow bracelets that are not only fun but will also keep them safe by making them visible in the dark.
How to make your Halloween festivities extra spooky Halloween is the second most decorated holiday, so it won't be long until ghouls and goblins, witches and vampires, pumpkins and candy corn adornments begin appearing in advance of trick-or-treating and haunting celebrations. This year, instead of buying your decorations, why not brew a little imagination? Just stir in a few items you already have around the house and a couple of cans of spray paint to create bewitching, inexpensive pieces for your home and yard. Here are three project ideas to inspire and help you easily put some extra spookiness in your Halloween trick-ortreating. Ghoulish gravestones Turn a couple of old boxes into a chilling graveyard to keep the goblins and vampires at bay. What you'll need: Black granite textured "stone" spray paint, such as Krylon's Make It Stone; spray adhesive; glow-in-the-dark paint; boxes (note: old shipping boxes work well); foam or wood letters; various Halloween decora-

tions; hot or super glue; packing tape; newspaper; large nails or ground stakes; and scissors. How to do it: Set up a spray paint area in a well-ventilated area by covering a table with newspaper. Assemble a box and tape over folded seams leaving one end open, as that will serve as the bottom of your gravestone. Cut a name plaque to fit the box from the cardboard of another and affix with spray adhesive. Glue letters onto the plaque. Embellish the top of your gravestone with glued-on Halloween decorations, like a bat or skull. Paint the entire gravestone with two to three coats of "stone" spray paint, letting it dry between coats. Once it's dry, highlight areas with glowin-the-dark paint. Place a stake in the ground, prop up your box and enjoy scaring the neighbors with your ghoulishly gorgeous graveyard. Ghostly globes Add a spooky twist to your outside walkway on All Hallow's Eve - without having to carve several messy pumpkins - by creating glowing ghostly globes. What you'll need: Round glass votives; newspaper; one can each of white frosted glass, white and glow-in-thedark spray paint, such as Krylon Glowz; and a black craft pen. How to do it: Cover your workspace with newspaper. Spray several light coats of white frosted glass paint on the lip of each votive and let dry. Next, add several light coats of white paint to the outside bottom of votives, blending the white seamlessly with the frosted glass. Let dry completely. Spray the entire exterior with glowin-the dark paint, which will allow your votives to shine even when not lit. Finally, draw facial features with a black paint pen. Spooky party servers Embellish your Halloween party buffet by transforming ordinary terra cotta pots into spooky party servers. What you'll need: White primer; pumpkin orange, gloss white and gold glitter spray paint; black webbing spray from Krylon; brush-on black paint; repositionable adhesive; assorted terra cotta pots and saucers; metal or enamel bowl; glue; paper; pencil; scissors; and a small paint brush. How to do it: Wash the pots and saucers. Allow to dry. Spray all the terra cotta with white primer. Let dry and spray with gloss white. Once dry, turn pots upside down and glue the bottom of a saucer to the bottom of each pot. Draw ghosts, tombstones and other scary characters on paper. Cut the shapes out and spray one side with repositionable adhesive. Position the paper shapes randomly on the pots. Spray the outside of the bowl and terra cotta pieces with pumpkin orange paint. Once dry, spray all the pieces with black webbing spray, then lightly with gold glitter spray. When all the paint is dry, remove paper templates and add details, such as features on the ghosts and words on the tombstones, with black paint. Be sure to not to place unwrapped food on any painted surface. For more Halloween decorating inspiration, there are a plethora of arts and crafts websites, such as yourholidaystyle.com, offering tips, tricks and inspiration to help you spook your family, guests and trick-or-treaters.

Valley Christian learns lesson in opening season loss Loses to Tesora 54-0 By Loren Kopff RANCHO SANTA MARGARITAThe paths that Valley Christian head coach Erick Streelman and Tesoro’s Brian Barnes have taken throughout their football careers eventually met again last Thursday night when they coached against each other to kick off the 2010 high school season. Although the outcome was not a surprise to anyone, a 54-0 Tesoro victory, the contest was more than just the final score. Both graduated in the late 1990s from their respective high schools-Streelman from V.C. and Barnes from Los Alamitos. Both were teammates and roommates for four years at the University of Nevada, Reno where Streelman was a tight end and Barnes played on the offensive line. So, when it was first discovered that V.C. would be opening the 2010 season at Tesoro, it opened a lot of eyes. Still there were justifiable reasons behind the Crusaders scheduling the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Division I and PAC-5 Division foe. “He’s a special man with a program heading in the right direction,” Barnes said of his counterpart. “They do a lot of really good stuff.” The game marked the first time in V.C.’s 76-year history that it has faced a Division I or PAC-5 Division opponent. For Tesoro, which won the Division IX CIF championship in 2004 and 2005 and a Division III state championship in 2005, it was beginning its 10th season with an all-time record of 55-31. “It’s a great experience for our kids,” Streelman said. “Obviously, [Tesero] has a huge stadium, they’re a Division I program…and it was also good for them to
see what a top tier program looks like. From that end, that’s all positive stuff.” “We’ll challenge anybody,” Barnes said. “It’s hard enough finding games; I can’t find games. So we were actually talking before Christmas last year and I said, ‘man, I thought you were calling to play us and he said we would love to play you’. It’s a good game. I love what he’s doing with his program and he’s really stepping up the level of competition.” The Crusaders, beginning the new season ranked third in the Mid-Valley Division, were already in the hole before the game even started as their two fastest outside wide receivers, seniors Austin Batiste and Tyler Boer, were sidelined with injuries. That meant senior wide receiver Darrell Bush had to move to the outside where he caught four passes for 28 yards. The Titans jumped all over V.C. early and led 16-0 after the first quarter. By half halftime, it was 37-0 as the hosts had scored two times on turnover returns and twice more on runs by quarterback Matt Adam where he faked a handoff at the line and scampered for 33 and 39 yards respectively. The closest V.C. got to the end zone in the first half came when senior wide receiver Jacob Dupuy hauled in a 31-yard reception with one hand near the sideline and was tackled at the Tesoro 18-yard line. Two plays later, senior quarterback Ryan Fronke was intercepted. “We just told them to compete,” Streelman said. “We didn’t want them to quit. We wanted them to execute and not give up. I thought we did a better job in the second half. Obviously they were playing most of their second string guys but their second string guys are still pretty good. There are some positives we can take away from that.” Offensively, V.C. couldn’t get a consistent rhythm going despite moving the ball down a field a few times. Fronke completed 11 of 31 passes for 109 yards but was picked off three times. On the ground, senior running back Chris Binford gained 25 yards on just three carries but was more productive on kickoff returns where he amassed 150 yards on

eight returns. As a team, the Crusaders picked up 178 offensive yards and did not have a drive over 3:09. “What’s good about a game like this for our guys is we’re used to playing teams where we can make mistakes and our athleticism can overcome that,” Streelman said. “Against these guys, it doesn’t because they’re just as athletic, if not more athletic than us. Plus, they’re bigger than us.” The Crusaders will now take a 188mile trip up the coast to the town of Santa Maria to face St. Joseph, the defending champions of the Los Padres League and a Northwest Division semifinalist last season, but now it’s in the PAC-7 League of the Western Division. “I don’t necessarily know if it’s regrouping,” Streelman said of preparing for St. Joseph. “It’s just a matter of going back to the little things and taking care of the football, win the turnover battle and just competing. We’re not going to play anybody else like [Tesoro].”
Norwalk’s offense slowed down, Richardson runs through Lancers defense By Loren Kopff LONG BEACH-Norwalk’s football program wanted more challenges in its pre-Suburban League season and having Los Alamitos on the docket for a Week 0 contest last Friday was a great fit. Of course, the Lancers wanted to prove they can compete with a California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section Division I team, and for the most part they did. But Nick Richardson, the fourth leading running back in Los Alamitos history, had other ideas as he picked up 248 yards on 15 carries and scored four times as the Griffins blasted Norwalk 34-0 at Veterans Stadium. The Lancers, who began the season ranked second in the Southeast Division pool, dropped to fifth and were blanked for the first time since a 40-0 playoff loss to Charter Oak in 2007. Richardson’s yardage was 39 yards fewer than Norwalk gained out of its customary Double Wing offense. “Oh yeah, he just embarrassed us there,” said Norwalk head coach Jesse Ceniceros. “But it’s a learning process and again, you’re not going to see a Richardson [the rest of the season].” The game was a matchup of Richardson, who set a Los Alamitos single season record with 1,906 rushing yards last season and Norwalk senior Elijhaa Penny, who racked up 1,339 yards in 2009. Penny would lead Norwalk with 113 yards on 25 touches and was one yard short of putting the Lancers on the board halfway through the second quarter.
With the Griffins leading 7-0 late in the first quarter, Penny began Norwalk’s second possession of the game with 17 yards on three carries to end the stanza and 10 more yards on the first three carries of the second quarter. Moments later, on third and nine from Los Al’s 43-yard line, Penny took an inside double reverse from senior running back Billy Moore and scampered for 14 yards, his longest gain of the night. Norwalk eventually got to the twoyard line but a delay of game penalty pushed the team back and on fourth and goal from the two, Penny was stopped at the one. The Griffins proceeded to go 99 yards in 4:26 and lead 14-0 after Richardson scored from 32 yards out. “We drove the ball on them but we just couldn’t punch it in,” Ceniceros said. “We get to the [two] yard line and then shot ourselves in the foot with a penalty, which put us back.” As always, the Lancers controlled the clock in the first half with the offense on the field for 17:07. Penny, who twisted his ankle in a scrimmage game and wasn’t 100 percent, still managed to pick up 82 yards in the half. The Griffins took the second half kickoff and marched 93 yards which ended in a Richardson 53-yard score. Later in the third quarter, his 73-yard run following Norwalk’s first punt of the game put the nail in the coffin as Los Al increased the margin to 27-0. Moore added 104 yards on 16 carries while senior fullback Andre Thompson pitched in with 47 yards on nine carries. Senior quarterback Donovan Gumbs, who completed one pass and was intercepted once, picked up 23 yards on eight carries. “This was his first time ever playing quarterback and he made some mistakes but again, he’s an athlete,” Ceniceros said. “He’s going to make things happen. He’ll get better.” Senior defensive backs Aaron Sanchez and Adrian Diaz led the team with six and a half and four and a half tackles respectively. Los Alamitos ran 32 plays compared to 63 by Norwalk. The Lancers will face its second challenge of the young season when they host Cypress tonight at Excelsior Stadium. The Centurions, who did not play last week, are ranked seventh in the Southwest Division. They advanced to the division semifinals last season and have won 38 games in the past four seasons. “Los Alamitos is a great football team,” Ceniceros said. “What are you going to do? This is a Division I powerhouse football team and we hung in there with them. It should have been 7-7 at the half.”
