By Shelley Henderson At its regular Apr. 6, meeting the Norwalk City Council accepted donations, announced proclamations, wrestled with wireless installations and parking, removed a planning commissioner and pondered Piccolo Pete fireworks. Following approval of the consent calendar, the Council opened a public hearing on extending a temporary moratorium on installation of wireless facilities. A 45-day moratorium was approved on Mar. 2 to allow staff to look into the issue. A report was issued on Mar. 26. Staff recommended an extension to allow a study session and public comment. The Council voted unanimously in favor of a six-month extension, to Oct. 16, while urging staff to be as speedy as possible. Council immediately confronted the issue again when asked to vote on a development plan for a T-Mobile wireless installation approved by the City’s planning commission prior to the moratorium. Contentious questioning of a T-Mobile representative failed to answer Councilwoman Cheri Kelley’s questions regarding coverage and signal propagation. Councilwoman Kelley also expressed her dislike of the 50 ft. high monopalm antenna array. The Council voted unanimous approval for construction of the monopalm design

Tran told guests that "the challenges we face will make the American people wake up."

Tran, a former city councilmember and current assemblymember, said that the government needs to support job creation and "cut out the red tape." McCain said that "there's lots of work to be done and the winds of change are coming" with the November elections. McCain praised Tran for his record of fiscal conservatism and was certain that "he will stop the government spending and get the budget under control."

On February 22nd, after months of hard work and planning, the City of Cerritos Girl Scout Troop #2153 donated 655 new and gently-used books to the Friends of Children Health Center in La Habra. Inspired, after reading about the Reach Out and Read Program in a magazine, 10 year old Girl Scout, Purvi Bhakta, decided she and her troop should get involved. Purvi’s mother, Sushma Bhakta, says her daughter has always had a love for reading and wanted to do a community service project that would highlight the importance of early literacy. Purvi and her fellow Girl Scouts

started collecting cans and bottles to be recycled last summer. The girls used the $235 they raised to purchase 55 new books. The troop also put out a call to action to other local Girl Scouts, which resulted in the collection of 600 gently-used books. After spending 2 hours cleaning and preparing the books to be distributed, Troop #2153 went to the La Habra clinic to drop them off and read to children. The girls will be receiving the Bronze award for their community service project with the ELP, the highest award given to Junior Girl Scouts.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Code violations in Cerritos The people of my cul-de-sac in Cerritos are in need of help. We have been plagued for many years by a local resident who sits on his lawn so as to spy on any activities by his neighbors which he considers to be city code violations. This situation would be funny if it was in a movie, but, unfortunately this is our lives. Just this week many of us left our green trash cans out an extra day because the contracted trash collector never picked them up. We all received citation warnings from the city. Examples of some of the citations over the years include my letting a few grass clippings fall to the street while mowing the city part of the grass. I received a citation warning within the hour. My neighbor received a citation for leaving his camping trailer out overnight after arriving home late at night after a trip. The code officer was at his house first thing in the morning. It is clear that the neighbor is calling in all these "violations," and he will admit it if you ask him. The city has been complicit in enabling this man to turn into a tyrany. I have written to the city several times to no avail. We have been harassed to the point that we plan on leaving Cerritos as soon as possible. In this recession, perOpinions submitted and expressed are not opinions of the editor. To submit letters e-mail to editor@cerritosnews.net.

Fifteen high school girls to compete for Junior Miss title Cerritos and the surrounding area is abuzz with activity and rehearsals for the annual Cerritos-Artesia Junior Miss Program which will culminate at the Sierra Room in the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts April 25 at 5 p.m.. Fifteen high school juniors from area high schools will be vying for the Junior Miss title and , the scholarships that are available to the young women who excel in fitness, self-expression, scholarship, talent, and poise when the judges interview them. Since 1975 the city of Cerritos has participated in this highly acclaimed National Program to award exceptional young women. In 2001, Kosha Shah, was Cerritos' Junior Miss and then went on to become California's Junior Miss. In 2009 Brittany Chen was our Junior Miss and is now the reigning Miss TeenCalifornia. Hillary Brown, of Cerritos

haps the City of Cerritos should rethink the role of the code enforcement officers. We are basically paying local taxes to be continually harassed. Linda B. Cerritos Re: Comparing Apples to Artichokes I read with interest Mr. Riley's comments on both my letter and the one from Mr. Kwon. Once again he has formed his reply as if he were a teacher lecturing to his poor dumb students and in the process ignores the fact that he missed the point of both of our responses. In the first part of my letter I tried to point out that the same defined benefit pension that Mr. Riley enjoys has virtually disappeared in the private sector, now accounting for less then 10% of private sector workers covered by them, as opposed to the 90% plus covered by them in the public sector. With this reality, according to a position paper by the Alliance for Retired Americans from May of 2007, which can be found on the internet, as of that point in time 1 in 6 Americans receive some sort of Social Security Benefits. Even though as Mr. Riley points out, it was not originally conceived as a retirement plan, with the erosion of the defined benefit plans in the private sector, according to the position paper Social Security is a major source of income for retirees, with 2/3 of retirees being dependent on it for half or more of their income. For 22% of retirees, it is their only High School is our accomplished 2010 Junior Miss and she was the winner of "the Spirit of Junior Miss" award at the state level in 2009. The public is urged to attend the performance and recognize the winners. Tickets are $12 each for anyone wishing to support the program. For tickets please reach Ming He at 562-397-2786 or dsilhe@msn.com.

Feed-a-frog at Muzeo A unique opportunity to satisfy a frog’s appetite. Don some gloves, sprinkle live crickets in multi-vitamins and feed a frog its breakfast at MUZEO. The special behind the scenes program with zookeeper takes place for one hour before the museum opens to the public on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 AM – 10 AM. The program was created to showcase a more upclose-and-personal look at frogs during MUZEO’s current exhibition; FROGS:

source of income and accounts for over 90% or more of income for one-third. Again as Mr. Riley points out and I will paraphrase here, "surely Mr. Transue received the message that he should plan for more sources of income in retirement then what Social Security can provide". Yes, Mr. Riley, I did receive that memo and that is why I donate to a 401K plan by choice but not without the pain of lowering my take home salary. I believe you should be making the same lecture to your fellow STRS participants if you really believe as you state that "STRS retirement packages are far from being golden parachutes but more like lifelines" and advise them to feel the pain and donate to a 403B plan. The fact remains that changes will be needed to both programs to keep them solvent, which will probably require major changes with more fees or taxes and fewer benefits. It is the reality of a broken economy and the pain needs to be spread around to both the public and the private sector for us to stand a chance of coming out of this. I am sure that there is more then one Cerritos resident nearing retirement that would trade his "Artichoke" lifeline (as I pointed out a worker earning $85,000 could draw approximately $26,000 a year benefit from Social Security if he waited until age 66) for Mr. Riley's "Apple" lifeline (by his own numbers, STRS retirements in 2009 averaged a little under $53,000 per year). John Transue Cerritos A Chorus of Colors. Space is limited for this special program and tickets must be purchased online to participate. Children must be 4 years old to feed a frog. Younger children however, will still enjoy the overall experience. Feel free to bring a camera. Each program is limited to 18 guests. No discount tickets will be accepted for this program. Prices are $18 for Tuesdays and $22 for Saturdays. Tickets may be purchased at MUZEO’s website at www.muzeo. org. The Feed-a-Frog program offers an up-close-and-personal look into the feeding habits of frogs from all over the world. Participants will have an opportunity to feed a cricket to a live waxy monkey frog or pac man frog using tweezers. The crickets are covered in multi-vitamins offering the frogs a filling breakfast. MUZEO’s zoo keeper will be hosting the program and providing unique and interesting facts and tidbits about the rare and friendly amphibians. After the program, guests are invited to stay and tour the exhibition itself which features over 100 frogs in living color.

Louisiana roots run deep at Cerritos By Glen Creason Normally I wouldn’t criticize great artists like Michael Doucet but I have to say that he is far too humble. Monsieur Doucet of the great Cajun group Beausoleil opened a really fine show at the Performing Arts Center on Friday and really had no business taking that position at said concert. No one should ever follow Doucet since he is impossible to top and although the show closing “Hot 8 Brass Band” pumped up the volume and the energy as high as their brass could take it, they were trying to fill shoes as big as the bayous of Louisiana. The show ended with the “Hot 8” doing what they do best which is sort of high stepping at the front of a parade or funeral in New Orleans. On this less baleful occasion they snaked through the Cerritos audience and into the lobby of the Center while blasting “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In.” However, I must sadly report that it was a letdown. It’s not that the “Hot 8 Brass Band” went quietly or failed to please many in the hard-core crowd with colorful readings of favorites such as “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “Bon Marie,” “Going to Mardi Gras,” “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” and a doleful “St. James Infirmary.” They did all of that with plenty of gumption. It’s just that they should have opened the show and allowed the living legend to finish it. In this world turned upside down, Beausoleil Avec Michael Doucet opened the show with some delicious old-time Cajun twin fiddle roots with the man

and Mitch Reed making you feel like you were down in southern Louisiana near Lafayette, where it all started. There are few sights in all of popular American music as intrinsically joyful to witness as Doucet’s dreamy face and swaying baldhead as he coaxes honey out of his fiddle creating the irresistible rhythms of down-home Cajun music. Just watching him play and tell stories in his salt-of-the-earth way is worth the price of admission. Then there is the superb band standing with him including brother David on guitar, the aforementioned Mitch Reed on bass, little keg of accordion dynamite Jimmy Breaux and the twin percussion delights of Billy Ware and Tommy Alesi. Everything they touched turned to gold especially “Marie,” “Little Darling,” and the Cajun National Anthem that goes by the common name of “Jolie Blonde.” The show highlight was most certainly “Alligator Purse” from the current CD but there were many other delicacies that don’t translate too well into English but went by titles like “the woman who liked to play cards…” “Those that are jealous,” “Oh What a Life with Money and No Wife,” “the Onions Are For Sale,” and in the original “Le Chanson de Theogenes Dubois.” It is not often locals can hear this genuine article and when the band finished their dozen tunes the audience stood and begged for more but the split concert constraints forced the band to hold to the dozen and leave the crowd wanting much more. Maybe next time Beausoleil will just take both ends of the show and give the rest of the show to the faithful, hungry for these rare and succulent Louisiana treats.

Gahr High School students host the Da’ Hawaii Senior Club of Cerritos By Kerry Grover It wasn’t your typical day for some of the Sophomore students at Gahr High School; They were going to meet their pen pals for the first time. As part of a History, Art and English project, the Sophomore Arts Technology Academy students have been learning from a different generation. Entitled the “Senior Senior Prom,” the Sophomore ATA class hosted a ‘prom’ like event for the members of the Da’ Hawaii Senior Club of Cerritos. In January of this year, the students began writing letters to various members of the Da’ Hawaii Senior Club of Cerritos. The students had one goal in mind; to learn what life was like for their pen pal when they were their age. “I was shocked to find out how many of my students had never had a pen pal,” said Kerry Grover their Art teacher who coordinated the whole event, “but I have been overwhelmed with what an amazing learning experience this has been for all of them.” Beyond the letter writing portion, the students also each researched a year and

Tri City Regional Medical Center launches patient educational campaign to improve care On the heels of national health reform, Tri-City Regional Medical Center in Hawaiian Gardens has launched its largest patient educational campaign in the hospital’s history, using for the first time an online platform. While the 106-bed community hospital may not be well known outside of the communities it serves, it is highly regarded for its world class spine program and among patients seeking surgical treatment for severe obesity. Its surgeons have been leaders in bariatric surgery for over 30 years, and have helped more than 18,000 patients achieve increased wellness through weight loss surgery. The hospital performs hundreds of weight loss surgeries each year, making it one of the largest and most experienced surgical weight loss programs in the western United States. It has the distinction of being certified as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence (“COE”) both by The American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and

Joan Oshiro one the senior pen pals. As the students continue to get to know their pen pals better, they will reflect and compare their life to the of their pen pal in an essay format.

Anthem Blue Cross. To educate patients about the important risks and benefits of weight loss surgery, the hospital has partnered with www.empowHer.com, an online health care media company. The hospital has developed over 400 patient and physician interviews and many textual articles and other items of educational and instructional content, and made them available in social media chat rooms, on YouTube and hundreds of Internet sites. All content is free and accessible to anyone looking to be educated about weight loss surgery. “In light of the current passage of health reform, in which patient education and transparency are strong

benchmarks, the hospital launched this national patient educational effort to foster better understanding of weight loss surgery,” said Arthur Gerrick, CEO, Tri-City Regional Medical Center. “The bottom line for us is that better patient education equals better care for our patients, many of whom come to our hospital from outside our community.” The more than 400 video clips developed by the hospital include educational instruction about weight

The day wasn’t about schoolwork though; it was about solidifying that new bond with their pen pals. It was a time to meet face-to-face, to eat, to talk, to dance, to share stories but more importantly to learn from each other. The Da’ Hawaii Senior Club shared a ukulele and hula performance with us, which was returned with similar performances by some of Gahr’s very own students. The entire community came together to make this event a success. “The event truly would not have been possible without the support and generosity of Chick Fil-A, Polly’s Pie, The Loft Hawaiian Restaurant, The Flame Broiler, Starbucks and of course, all of the members of the Da’ Hawaii Senior Club,” thanked Grover at the end of the event. However, it didn’t necessarily come to an end at days end. Most students’ plan on continuing to exchange letters with their pen pals. We plan on making this a yearly event, one in which the students and surrounding community can look forward to.

There were fourteen Part I felony crimes investigated by Cerritos Sheriff’s deputies last week. There were increases in robberies, commercial and residential burglaries, but decreases in vehicle burglaries and vehicle thefts. Calls for service were higher after 328 were recorded last week compared to 296 the week before. The 2010 weekly average in calls for service is now 299. After two consecutive weeks of no reported robberies, two were logged last week. On Saturday April 4 at 9:45 a.m. two male suspects assaulted a lone male victim inside the Los Cerritos Center where his cell phone, keys, and purse were taken. A shoplifting suspect struggled with loss prevention personnel at a retail store in the 12700 block of Towne Center Drive at 2:35 p.m. the same afternoon. He was eventually taken into custody. There were three residential burglaries reported compared to one case the previous week. An unlocked door was the entry point in one where luggage bags were stolen. The other two were committed by the same suspect, who

pried one window and used an unlocked sliding glass door to take a bicycle. The suspect was arrested and hospitalized with mental health issues. The new 2010 weekly average in residential burglaries is 2.1. Burglar alarms and dogs are the would-be burglar’s worst enemies. Most insurance companies offer a discount on a homeowner’s policy when an alarm system is installed. Both of these attract attention to your home when there is an intrusion, but only one will result in a Sheriff’s Department response every time. Unless you can train your dog to dial 911, look into an alarm system BEFORE you become a victim. There were three commercial burglaries reported. One was investigated the week before. Two closed businesses were involved where an office window and a glass door were shattered. Cell phones were reported missing. The 2010 weekly average in this crime category is 2.6. Vehicle burglaries dropped from six to four cases last week. High-volume commercial parking lots were the crime scenes in all four. Cameras, ID, credit cards, cash, and a tool box were stolen. The new 2010 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 6.6. sales tax and another $1.1 million in property tax. Cerritos invested $5 million in redevelopment funds for the expansion project. Mayor Joseph Cho said Cerritos has had a long and happy partnership with the Los Cerritos Center. He said the expansion is a win-win effort bringing jobs, high quality development and new options for the shoppers. An estimated 2,800 people work in the Center.

The safest place to leave items inside of a vehicle is in your locked garage. Remember that wherever you park, you become “fair game” to any thief that can look inside of your vehicle and observe valuable property. Whether you park on a street, in a parking lot, or even your own driveway, the thin window that separates your property from a thief is not any protection at all. Window smashes are the most reported points of entry in vehicle burglaries. SUVs, pick-ups, and vans do not have trunk space. Criminals know this and look even closer. Don’t become a victim by giving a criminal the chance to make you one. Vehicle thefts decreased again from three to one last week. A high-volume commercial parking lot was the crime scene. A Honda was stolen. The 2010 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 5.2. Events The next Neighborhood Watch Town Hall meeting will be held at the Cerritos Senior Center (South Street and Ely Avenue) on Wednesday June 9, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. Those in attendance will be briefed on crime information in the area and learn more about how to better prepare for a natural disaster and better protect themselves from being victimized by crime. We look forward to seeing you there.

Deputy Superintendent Dr. Mary Sieu explained, “The purpose of Magnet School Programs is to assist and provide all students with a challenging academic program. Their development and design is to promote diversity and increase parental choice options. In approving the applications of the three schools for the next round of Magnet School grants, the Board also approved recertifying the voluntary desegregation plan for 2010-13. that is part of the grant requirements.” Dr. Sieu said the school staff not only designs a magnet school program, but 75 percent of the staff needs to vote in favor of becoming a magnet school. “ABC has been fortunate in achieving magnet school status for the past 12 years with 10 of its schools having been designated Magnet Schools. In dollars this has amounted to $20 million. She said the schools have gone on to become award-winning schools. “The latest one, Elliot Magnet School of Global Studies, is a nominee for a National Honor this year. She said if the applications were approved by the Department of Education, the three schools would receive a combined sum of $5.5 million. Aloha Elementary Aloha proposes to become a Medical Magnet School. Nixon Elementary School would focus on becoming an Academy of Multimedia Production and Tetzlaff Middle School an Accelerated Learning Academy. Aloha Principal Julie Yabumoto said the school’s proposed magnet program would emphasize California State standards in science, health, physical studies, physical education, and technology. She said ABC has many magnet schools but none with the medical magnet theme, which she said is very important to the school and to ABC students. She said the medical and health in-

Signs and parking stickers should be available in May, 30 days after a second reading of the new ordinance.

The City received supporting letters from 15 nonprofit organizations that raise money by selling fireworks.

Mr. Kelly described changes in the design of Piccolo Petes that answered complaints about its noise and safety. In the end, the Council decided to continue the question until TNT could provide a demonstration of the redesigned Pete.

dustry is one of the fastest growing careers. “We feel it is very important to provide our students with a background in science, medicine, as well as exposure to careers in medicine.” She said Aloha was very fortunate to be in close proximity to Tri City Regional Medical Center. “It’s within walking distance from the school.” She said she has been in discussion with the hospitals Community Relations Director, Mary Lou Landes about bringing medical staff to the school as well as making field trips to the hospital.Yabumoto said Aloha has a strong background in the sciences and health education and nutrition. “We plan to create a science lab, an updated technology center and plan to send Aloha teachers to professional development opportunities so “we can grow.” She said they would also like to have career days and parent education nights. She said they visited a medical magnet school in Indio. The theme is everywhere, whether on the exterior or interior. We also plan to hold a spirit day where the staff wears scrubs. “We really want to get into it,” she stated. Nixon Elementary Nixon Elementary School Principal Melinda Ortiz said the school’s vision is to have the students master the r state curriculum through the arts, media and technology, while at the same time developing an appreciation of the arts and exploring the uses of media technology while integrating with a variety of core subjects such as art, mathematics, science and social studies. She said they envision their students to actively engage in expressing themselves in band, vocal music, dance drama and public speaking. Oritiz said with the latest technology available, students will learn to create, communicate and problem solve as well as collaborate. She said it will also provide opportunities for family members to become involved through advisory committees, showcase and other school activities. Students will also have an op-

portunity to work with different grade levels, across the curriculum with staff and community members, learning to collaborate together. Tetzlaff Middle School Tetzlaff Middle School Principal Crerchena Wise said their vision is to move Tetzlaff into becoming an Accelerated Learning Academy. “Our mission is to prepare our students with the tools so they are ready for high school and beyond. “ “Our high schools offer advanced placement for AP courses in high school and allow the term college credits in high school. At Tetzlaff we will continue to offer excellent standard programs. However, our Pre-AP classes will emphasize on relevant in-depth teaching using research structural strategies that meet the demands for the rigorous AP classes in high school.” She said Tetzlaff’s program would fit into a two-year plan where students will be required to complete grade level units, attend university tours where seventh grade students will visit the community colleges and California State Universities. The school’s eighth grade students will visit University of California campuses and private universities. Tetzlaff after school programs will allow the students to be exposed to multi-cultural experiences and foreign language in the school’s classes. They will also focus on their organizational skills based on the writings of Stephen Cuppy books “ such as Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teenagers.” All the programs are geared to prepare Tetzlaff students for high school and beyond. Wise said in order to make the program successful they needed to work with high schools. In this case the school has been in conversation with ArtesiaCerritos High Schools, because they are Tetzlaff’s feeder schools. “We wanted to make sure our elective courses met their requirements. “We want to give our children the option of choice,” she explained, “whether they decide on college or careers.”

of Norwalk, presented the City with a check for $2,025 to be used by the City for social services. Mayor Gordon Stefenhagen introduced a short video showing the participation of Cerritos College in a food drive in support of the Food Pantry run by the City’s Social Services Department. Two campus groups stood out: the Court Reporters Club collected about 20,000 items and the Accounting Club about 12,000. City Manager Ernie Garcia presented a check in the amount of $2.166.84 to the Rio Hondo Chapter of the American Red Cross. The money was raised primarily through donations from city employees in response to recent earthquakes in Haiti and Chile. At the request of Councilman Rick Ramirez, the full Council voted to affirm the removal of Marcel Rodarte from the City’s Planning Commission. City Attorney Steven Dorsey explained that commissioners are voluntary and advisory, are appointed at the request of particular Council members, and may be removed at the request of the member (affirmed by the Council) or by vote of the full Council. Mr. Rodarte spoke on his own behalf, followed by two others who supported him. In remarks after the meeting adjourned, Mr. Rodarte confirmed that he will be running for City Council this year. In remarks at the start of the meeting, Councilwoman Cheri Kelley reported that $800 was raised for the city’s needy through donations given during last month’s Council reorganization. She also noted that 30% of the city’s residents have not yet returned their federal census form, as required by law. Help is available in filling out the census form until April 19th at the Norwalk Senior Center, 12700 Norwalk Blvd. Mayor Gordon Stefenhagen called attention to two upcoming events: the Norwalk Lions Club’s annual festival at

the Norwalk Civic Center on April 15-18. The festival raises funds for Club projects such as the Blind Bowling League, Canine Companions for Independence, and numerous community activities such as Santa Sleigh, Angel Tree and the just concluded Easter Egg Hunt. The second is Norwalk’s Relay for Life in support of cancer survivors that will be held at the Cerritos College soccer field beginning June 12 at 9a.m. and continuing through the night to Sunday, June 13th at 9a.m.. As of this writing, 29 participants have signed up and $330 have been raised. Visit www.relayforlife. org for more information. Rev. Tony Gomez, pastor of St. Linus Catholic Church, gave the invocation. Vice Mayor Jesse Luera led the flag salute. The Council welcomed back Councilman Michael Mendez, who was absent for the reorganization meeting last month due to illness.

Clinton serves office against Artesia, powers Lady Dons to season sweep By Loren Kopff

The final score of last Thursday’s Suburban League softball game between host Cerritos and Artesia doesn’t completely show how competitive the visitors were compared to 48 hours earlier. It was on the last day of March when Cerritos drilled the Pioneers 16-0 with a pair of six-run innings. But when the two foes met at Cerritos last Thursday to complete the weekly season series, the Pioneers came to play and if it wasn’t for a big day by Cerritos freshman shortstop Erin Clinton, the score and outcome may have been different. Clinton hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the third, her first of the season, then cleared the bases with a double in the fifth as the Lady Dons posted an 11-1 victory that was much closer for the majority of the game. Cerritos scored five unearned runs with two outs in the fifth inning. Clinton drove in half a dozen runs as Cerritos (7-6 overall, 2-2 in league) rebounded from being swept by Bellflower to begin league action. “Erin is hitting and missing right now,” said Cerritos head coach Bob Medina. “She’s really not hitting everything solid but she came through today. We’ve worked on [her hitting] yesterday and we’ve worked on it the day before.” Cerritos got on the board in the bottom of the first when Artesia junior pitch-

er Chelsea Small walked a pair of batters before Cerritos freshman pitcher Miki Okazaki reached on an error. Small then walked Clinton which allowed junior first baseman Nikki Rosenberger to come home. In the next inning, Rosenberger’s base hit plated sophomore catcher Sarah Smith. But the Pioneers cut that lead in half in the top of the third as senior second baseman Jessica Mejia singled, stole second, went to third on a base hit from junior shortstop Lauren Lewis and stole home as part of a failed double steal situation. After that, Artesia would collect just one hit and have five batters strikeout over the next three innings. “The first half of the game, they were definitely a lot stronger and fought a little bit more,” said Artesia first-year head coach John Zamora. “I want to get back to where they were over the [previous] weekend as far as their spirit and energy goes. There are a lot of things we can work off of from today.” The Pioneers had begun the season splitting four games in the Whittier Tournament and were in position to play for the consolation championship. Still, at 2-4 overall, the Pioneers have doubled their win production from last season and are getting key contributions from junior first baseman Reanna Guzman (.538 batting average), senior center fielder Erica Rivera (.357), freshman catcher Kira Ito (.333) and Lewis (.368). “I’m still feeling pretty good about them,” Zamora said. “I don’t think they’ve reached their potential. I think if we had the team that showed up on Saturday these last couple of days, it would have been much more of a fight against Cerritos.” “They came out and they knew what

we were doing; they were aware of us,” Medina said. “They were prepared for us. I told the girls before the game that they’re not a bad team. We just had the timely hits. I believe that [Artesia] did a very good job and they came out to play.” With the Lady Dons in front 4-1, sophomore left fielder Jessika Castaneda led off the fifth with a single. But two outs later, the flood gates opened on the Pioneers. Smith reached on an error and Rosenberger’s second hit of the game allowed Castaneda to score. Then freshman right fielder Bianca Espinoza and Okazaki followed with base hits to load the bases before Clinton’s big hit made the score 9-1. Okazaki worked three innings and picked up her sixth win of the season while freshman Kaylilani Minami finished the game and earned her first save of the season. Whereas Artesia is trying to revive a struggling program with juniors and seniors this season, Cerritos is doing its damage with primarily freshman and sophomores. The Lady Dons have just three seniors on the team and none of them started last Thursday. Rosenberger and center fielder Kassandra Torres were the lone junior starters with the rest being ninth and 10th graders. All nine offensive starters recorded at least one hit but the team also left nine runners on base. “We work them like seniors and they are held accountable for everything they do wrong,” Medina said. “Hopefully they buy into the program what we’re trying to give. I’m really looking forward to our years that we have. We have a lot of freshmen coming in this year that helped us out a lot and really took other peoples’ spots.” Artesia comes back from spring vacation to face league power La Mirada on

Wednesday while the Lady Dons will visit Mayfair and its top pitcher Kristin Jaeger. WOODBRIDGE CLASSIC SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT

Norwalk ends slide with win over Brea Olinda, falls in nightcap By Loren Kopff IRVINE-The revamped pitching staff of Norwalk’s softball team has been up and down in the early part of the season, losing nine of the first 13 games. But the combination of junior Cassandra Caro and sophomore Vanessa Venegas posted a much needed victory over Brea Olinda last Saturday evening in a pool play game of the 28th annual Woodbridge Classic Softball Tournament. Venegas worked the first four innings against the Wildcats before giving way to Caro, who pitched one-hit ball over the final three frames to get the save in a 4-2 win over the Division I opponent inside Deanna Manning Stadium at Col. Bill Barber Marine Corps Memorial Park. The victory was the second in the past seven games for the Lancers, who were coming off a weekly sweep by Bellflower, who touched up the pitching staff for 11 runs and 23 hits. “After you take a loss like that, it’s how you rebound and the girls just wanted to rebound,” said Norwalk head coach Paulette Gasporra. “That’s what we did. We just have to pick it up and move forward as far as league is concerned.” Norwalk struck first as junior third baseman Claudia Torres hit a one-out home run in the bottom of the second. Af-

ter seeing Brea Olinda tie the game in the next inning, the Lancers scored three runs in the fourth inning. With one out, Maegan Sloggett walked junior center fielder Lorraine Fitzgerald before senior first baseman Elizabeth Jimenez reached on an error. Following the second out, both runners came home on a double from junior shortstop Anai Zarate, who would also come home on a two-bagger from freshman catcher Crystal Cano. While the Lancers loaded the bases but came away empty in the next inning, the Wildcats were trying to put a dent in the three-run lead. After Brea Olinda scored a run with none out in the top of the fifth, Caro replaced Venegas and faced one batter over the minimum, striking out two and getting five ground ball outs. Shortly after the win, the Lancers hooked up with Woodbridge, another Division I opponent, and pushed across a pair of first innings runs. But the Warriors broke through with three runs in the top of the fourth and held on for the one-run victory. Senior designated player Courtney Fischer singled in the opening inning and came home on a double from Jimenez. Torres would make it a 2-0 affair with her second hit of the night. However, that would be the end to Norwalk’s offensive attack as it was held to two hits the remainder of the game and would not have a runner reach second. Meanwhile, Venegas was doing a number on the Warriors, retiring the first eight batters she faced and holding them scoreless with two outs in the fourth. But Kayla Clausen tied the contest with a two-run home run over the left field fence, then scored the game winner on a triple from Ashley Radziuk. Caro pitched the final three innings, giving up a pair of hits, inducing five batters to groundout and another two to sharply lineout. “I think we finally made our adjustments,” Gasporra said of her pitching staff. “We used both of them in both games and I think pitching wise, we just have to realize that we have two to three pitchers who can get the job done. In tournaments, we’re facing Orange County teams and it’s a different type of competition out here in Orange County. I think the girls really wanted to prove a point and they did.” Norwalk would get blasted by North Torrance 15-2 this past Monday night and will face South Torrance Saturday morning in the first of two games to wrap up the tournament. The Lancers will then play either Beckman or Corona and with two wins on the day will finish in fifth place of the Silver Bracket of the prestigious tournament. Norwalk jumps back into Suburban League action on Wednesday at John Glenn in a meeting of city rivals who are both 0-4 in the circuit. ANAHEIM LIONS TOURNAMENT

Gahr’s fast start helps Faria finish tournament with complete game win By Loren Kopff LA PALMA-Gahr junior pitcher Jacob

Faria began the 36th annual Anaheim Lions Tournament last Saturday with a solid win against Martin Luther King. He then ended the tournament this past Wednesday with his fifth straight victory of the season. Faria went the distance, scattering seven hits and striking out five as the Gladiators jumped all over Troy early en route to an 8-2 win at Kennedy High School. Gahr finishes the prestigious tournament 3-2 as the team prepares to begin the second wave of San Gabriel Valley League action Tuesday at Downey. “I think it was gritty, kind of gutty,” said Gahr head coach Gerardo Perez of Faria’s performance. “I think he’s in the process of becoming a complete pitcher. There are times where his movement and his velocity can be a little dominant at the high school level.” Having been staked to a 6-0 lead before throwing his first pitch, Faria cruised through the first four innings against the Warriors, yielding three hits and walking one. He threw 58 pitches before running into trouble in the bottom of the fifth. It was there that Troy sent seven batters to the plate, collecting a pair of hits and both of its runs. “The first part of the game everything felt good; I was keeping the ball down,” Faria said. “Later in the game I was getting tired and left the ball up a little bit but then I made those little adjustments.” The Warriors would have runners at second and third in the next inning but Cody Smith lined out to freshman second baseman Edgar Morales to end that threat. The Gladiators (10-7 overall) were the beneficiaries of some bad pitching from Michael Gregory in the top of the first. He walked junior right fielder Angel Ramos, hit senior catcher Alex Hernandez and walked senior center fielder Brenton Allen to begin the game. Then senior shortstop Josh Cabula reached on an error, allowing Ramos to score before Gregory walked senior third baseman Marcus Tomlin who brought in Hernandez. It wasn’t until the ninth batter in the lineup, senior first baseman Sonny Burgueno, finally posted Gahr’s first hit, a single to left which scored Tomlin and Morales. That prompted a pitching change and when George Eisner replaced Gregory, the Gahr bats would be relatively silenced the rest of the game. Eisner retired 15 of the first 18 batters he faced, striking out six of them. His only challenge came in the top of the seventh when Allen laid down a bunt in front of home plate and beat out an infield single. Cabula then reached on an error and that was followed by a run scoring single from Tomlin and a sacrifice from junior right fielder Josh Palmer. “I’m discouraged in the quality of our at-bats when the second pitcher came in,” Perez said. “I don’t think we made the adjustments soon enough. I’m not happy with the adjustment we made; I’m not happy with the number of strikeouts af after they changed pitchers. Basically we played a four inning game.” But the story of the game was Faria, who bounced back after a shaking fifth inning and faced eight batters over the final two frames. He threw 105 pitches but most impressive was the fact that he threw

COMMUNITY NEWS GROUP • APRIL 9, 2010

a first pitch strike to 22 of the 30 batters he faced and did not have a 2-0 count on anyone until the sixth. “The first pitch strike is really important because then you can come back with the next two pitches whatever you want,” Faria said. “Once you fall behind, they pretty much have a sense that the fast ball will be coming down the middle.” “I think part of it was he felt he could go after those guys,” Perez said. “So, he had some room to be aggressive.” This was Faria’s first complete game of the season and third by the pitching staff. Last Saturday, Faria went five innings and gave up two hits while striking out five against M.L. King. His start before that was a 16-1 home win against Warren in which the Bears got just four hits. “They’ve all been in a different form,” Perez said. “King was a physically, superior team, so he actually used his chan-

geup and slider and he kept the hitters off balance. Today you saw strike one and him be more aggressive and go right af after the guys. Against Warren, he was more aggressive than he was today.” “Every time you go out there, you want to get that complete game but it’s not always going to happen,” Faria said. “I was thinking about it in the fifth inning because the pitch count wasn’t that high.” The Gladiators will have a weekly series with Downey, which is currently tied with Paramount atop the league and one game ahead of Gahr and Warren. The league title could be decided in the final week of the regular season when Gahr and Paramount hook up with the last game (May 14) on the road.
