entered into after elections By Jerry Bernstein

In a 3-2 vote, the Council approved a resolution in support of Assembly Bill 2003 authored by Assemblyman Tony Mendoza which would require all contracts and appointments made after an election and before new board members are sworn into office, to be subject to final approval of the recently elected new boards. Local governing bodies include, but are not limited to City Councils, County Supervisors and School Boards. Voting in favor were Councilmembers Jim Edwards, Laura Lee and Mayor Joseph Cho. Voting no were Councilmembers Bruce Barrows and Carol Chen. Assistant City Manager Kathleen Jung Matsumoto said the bill is to ensure that any member of a governing body who was not re-elected does not enter into any long-term contracts or make long-term appointments that would prevent the incoming legislative body from making decisions that best benefit their communities. Councilman Bruce Barrows asked if there was any opposition to the bill. Matsumoto said the California State Association of Counties, the Urban Counties Caucus, and Regional Council of Rural Counties. Barrows said he was not sure if the bill would do what it is intended to do. I’m not

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Thank you Hawaiian Gardens volunteers Just wanted to let everyone know that thanks to the hard work of all our community volunteers and the support of the community itself, our 1st Neighborhood Watch Public Safety Recognition Night event was a huge success. I have to admit, given that this was our first attempt at organizing such an event and that we only had a few short weeks to pull it off I was more than a bit concerned whether the community would respond to our efforts. However, even with the bad weather and Artesia High School having an event on the same night we had over 250 people come out to show support for our local Fire Dept. and Sheriff Officers. It only goes to show as I've always believed, this community can and will come to-

Thanks again to all of our committee members, business sponsors Hawaiian Gardens Casino, Tri-City Hospital, Bears & Roses, and many of our city employees who donated their own time to help make this night a success. On another note I would like to take the time to update you on a few programs we are working on.... Community Gardens: This past weekend we opened our first community gardens in our city at the corner of Violetta/226th St. this is an opportunity for our residents to spend some time together as they plant and harvest fresh fruits and vegetables which they can enjoy with the pride of sharing the fruits of their labor with their friends and family. Just as importantly it can hopefully be a step towards introducing more

healthy foods into our diet by replacing processed food with fresh produce. Mentoring Program: We are currently seeking adults wishing to give back to the community by volunteering to become mentors to members of our youth. We are working in conjunction with an organization called "Youth Mentoring Connection" who has a long record of success because of their structured curriculum and training for both mentors and mentees. YMC will be there for support throughout the length of the program. Anyone interested please contact our Human Services Dept. at 420-2641. Thanks again for all your support.

ENTERTAINMENT/COMMUNITY EVENTS

A Sublime SONYC Combat Fraud Experience forum hosted by By Chris Callard Rep. Ed Royce There is something about sitting in a concert hall, listening to a group of classical musicians, that just seems to connect you to the history of the world. At least that was how it felt watching the String Orchestra of New York City (SONYC) at the Cerritos Center last Saturday evening. This group of 11 musicians on violin, viola, cello and bass provided a rousing and beautiful program full of style and grace. The first selection, Don Quixote Suite by Georg Philip Telemann, was in turn bracing and gentle, and altogether enchanting and engaging. Next up, William Walton’s Sonata for Strings, presented a strong sense of drama with much interplay between instruments, building up remarkable tension amid a rousing ebb and flow. After the intermission we were treated to Chamber Symphony by Dmitri Shostakovich, a churning, whirling maelstrom of emotion (oh, those Russians!). From the audience it was like watching a play, a theatrical experience with the sentiment of the music combined with the faces and body language of the players, all completely entrancing. The musicians were, it has to be said, adorable. Each in their distinctive way looked like what young classical musicians should look like, in the mind’s eye. It was Central Casting, but with actual award-winning talent. The synchronicity of the players was transcendent. The subtlety was moving, the passion contagious. And a word of technical kudos to the theater’s staff – the sound was clear and perfectly balanced, which paired nicely with the precise and calibrated performance.

Wise performed a dramatic “Marc Antony Speech” from The Tragedy of Julius Ceasar by William Shakespeare, and an amusing “the Crew” monologue from the movie Big Fish written by John August. Zgouridi sang a powerful Wie Melodien by Johannes Brahms and a lively Habanera from Carmen by Georges Bizet. Each winner received a scroll from the Board of Supervisors Office of Don Knabe, a Proclamation from the City of Cerritos presented by Mayor Joseph

Cho, and the presentation of Scholarships by Gary W. Hopkins, Ph.D., President, Friends Board of Directors. “The Scholarship Program is designed to assist talented high school seniors who wish to pursue a career in dance, music or theatre. Whether their goal is to work on stage or to become a teacher, the scholarships support all careers that bring the arts into the community,” said Gloria Kappe, V. P. Education/Scholarship, Friends Board of Directors. “It is our belief that talent must be nurtured if we are to fill our stages with great artists in future years.” The Friends raises almost one-third of its funds through Special Events such as the Friends’ 17th Annual Gala Apr. 10, its biggest fundraiser of the year, that raised about $70,000 and entertained guests with an “elegant evening of dinner in the theatre, silent and live auctions, and world-class entertainment.”

7, Los Cerritos Center will introduce a new, 139,000-square foot Nordstrom store and 36,400 square feet of new inline stores, including already announced retailers, True Religion, M.A.C Cosmetics, Foreign Exchange, Love Culture, Carlton Hair and Vision Shoes. Lazy Dog Cafe plans to open in 2011. "Our expansion at Los Cerritos Center is about more – more fashion, more dining, more brands – in response to strong demand from this market. Lazy Dog Cafe will help us offer a more complete experience for shoppers and another great dining option," said Ken

Kraus, property manager for Los Cerritos Center. The Lazy Dog Cafe at Los Cerritos Center will be the eighth location of the Southern California concept that combines a comfortable, contemporary atmosphere with an internationallyinspired menu. Los Cerritos Center continues to demonstrate a strong draw for new retailers. Most recently, Forever 21 chose Los Cerritos Center for one of its largest stores to date, a new, 86,000-square foot department-store concept that opened in January 2010 in the former Mervyns space. Once Nordstrom opens in its new location, the original Nordstrom building at the shopping center also will offer new opportunities for additional retail uses. The new stores will open at 10 a.m. Friday, May 7. The shopping center will celebrate the new expansion with a "Light Up Cerritos" event at 7 p.m. on Friday to introduce a new sculpture by Brian Tolle, a well known creator of public art who is a faculty member at the New School in New York City. Shoppers may also enter a $10,000 sweepstakes at www.InspireYourStyle. com through May 24, and enjoy giftwith-purchase offers and a special Spring Essentials Savings Guide May 7 - 9.

Cerritos couple’s Subway restaurant in Buena Park receives Award of Excellence

Children dressed in yellow and blue robes took their first step toward Kindergarten, as they graduated from Artesia Park Preschool on the evening of April 23. Because of the economic crisis, the City of Artesia chose to close the preschool program, and so this graduation marked the last preschool class for the foreseeable future. The City’s waste hauler, Consolidated Disposal Services, donated $1000 to the event.

Nick and Julie Kim (center), owners of “Nick’s Subway of Buena Park, and three of their employees hold up the five “Award of Excellence” certificates they have received from 2005 to 2010 for consistently maintaining exceptionally high food safety and sanitation standards. Also pictured (l-r) are Ricardo Perez, the Kim’s, Jackie Napalan and Kimberly Salazar. Nick Kim is a commissioner on the Cerritos Parks and Recreation Commission. Photo by Loreen Berlin By Loreen Berlin Nick Kim, a Cerritos resident and Cerritos Park and Recreation Commissioner is also active in Buena Park with the Chamber of Commerce there, where he and his wife own a Subway restaurant. Nick’s Subway of Buena Park, 8241 La Palma Ave. (near Kohl’s), has received the “Award of Excellence,” five years in a row, from the County of Orange Environmental Health Division for consistently maintaining exceptionally high food safety and sanitation standards. “It’s a very difficult award to receive because you have to be so good on a consistent basis and put food safety at the fore front of your business,” Orange County Health Care Agency Program manager Mike Haller said. Co-owner Nick Kim is very pleased with the award. “Very few people receive it two or three years in a row - let alone five years in a row,” Kim said. “This is better than an ‘A’ rating on the window of a restaurant. It’s very good news – it’s almost a perfect rating from the Health Department.” He credits his wife, Julie for the restaurant’s high achievements. “My wife’s character is one of cleanliness,” Nick Kim said. “She maintains and keeps the restaurant in the up-most clean atmosphere and she is the one who runs it most of the time.” “We pride ourselves on having fresh vegetables and meat and we feel very

confident with the healthy environment in our Subway,” Julie Kim said. The Kim’s opened their restaurant in 2004. The award is given after one year of being in business, so they received the prestigious award in 2005, 2006, and 2007, 2008, and 2009, which is valid through Dec. 31, 2010. Both of the Kim’s are former high school teachers in Korea; Nick in Eng-

Specializing In:

Part I felony investigations rose last week to twenty-eight compared to twenty-three the two previous reporting periods. Vehicle burglaries increased, residential and commercial burglaries remained the same, and robberies and vehicle thefts declined. There were 285 calls for service, up from 267 the previous week. The 2010 weekly average in calls for service is now 294. One robbery was reported on Wednesday April 21 at 7:00 p.m. after a female juvenile had been walking on Norwalk Boulevard at the 91 Freeway. A male juvenile suspect grabbed her cell phone and fled to an awaiting vehicle. Three residential burglaries were logged, which is the same total from the week before. Two doors were forced open and a window was shattered. A laptop computer, a DVD player, a computer, jewelry, and a shopping bag containing worthless papers were stolen. The new 2010 weekly average in residential burglaries is 2.2. We remind residents to make an “exit check” each time they leave

the home. Make sure that all doors and windows are secured, even if the weather is warm. Don’t present an opportunity for a burglar to enter your home with ease. When you return, you can “air out” the residence in a short period of time. This is a much safer practice than finding valuable property stolen when you get back. There were three commercial burglaries reported, also the same as the previous week. A lock was removed on a fitness center locker where a wallet, cash, and credit cards were taken. Two closed businesses were also targeted after a door was pried and a window shattered. Computers and monitors were the items missing. The 2010 weekly average in commercial burglaries is 2.8. Vehicle burglaries increased from two cases the previous week to seven last week. High-volume commercial parking lots were the sites of four of the crimes. Five of the vehicles were SUVs. Three GPS units were reported stolen. The new 2010 weekly average in vehicle burglaries is 6.4. Think twice about the property you leave in your vehicle, and especially an SUV. If it is valuable and important to you, consider leaving it at home or

taking it with you when you exit the vehicle. Valuable items left within the passenger compartment make it just too easy for the thief Vehicle thefts dropped from seven to four last week. High-volume commercial parking lots were the crime scenes in three. Two SUVs, a Honda, and a motorcycle were involved. The 2010 weekly average in vehicle thefts is now 4.9. There was no information to suggest that any of these vehicles were equipped with any type of anti-theft device. While transportation is a frequent cause of vehicle thefts, Hondas and Toyotas are often taken for parts. Consider a steering wheel locking device that serves as a good visual deterrent. 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.

COUNCIL

Continued from page 1 sure we have enough information. He said on the surface the bill-looked good, but there might be some unintended results. Barrows cited concerns expressed by the attorney’s for California Association of Counties and Urban Counties Caucus; He said he would like time to look into those concerns. Councilmember Laura Lee said the examples raised by Assemblyman Mendoza would not necessarily occur in Cerritos following a city council election because a newly elected councilmember is sworn in a few days after the election has been certified. She then made the motion for approval that was seconded by Mayor Joseph Cho.

www.loscerritosnews.net Councilmember Carol Chen asked if the existing council approved a contract, did that mean it would not be binding until the new member was sworn into office? I would think the vote would be by majority rule, not dependent on a new member joining the council. Chen said she thought the matter was put on the agenda for discussion purposes only and for further study. City Councilmember Jim Edwards asked City Attorney Mark Steres if he could see where this measure could tie the hands of the city. Is it advantageous or disadvantageous? Steres said the way it is written if a new councilmember were elected, a contract that was approved by the old council would not go into effect until the new councilmember was seated. If there were two or three openings then the outcome could change. He said the amendment to the bill

COMMUNITY NEWS GROUP • APRIL 30, 2010

approving contracts under $20,000 would not be subject to the bill if they were completed by the time the new member(s) was sworn in. If they weren’t, then the amendment would not cover the contract. He also noted the resolution also governs appointments. Councilman Edwards said the special election in Cerritos was one in 54 years. He said most of our appointment has alternates so our representation on the different board would not be effected. Mayor Cho said he believes the bill will protect local governing bodies from long-term contracts made after an election but before new members are seated. In other business the council awarded a contract to Pave West of La Habra in the amount of $349,534 for street improvements in Equitable Road, Bettencourt Street and Struikman Road from Edwards Road to Marquardt Avenue.

LA PALMA

Continued from page 1 a year. The Mayor was also pleased that the City now has the largest reserves in its history while not having to cut back on services to the community. “We even expanded some of them, especially those for our seniors.” Shanahan was pleased that none of the Top Ten businesses in the City closed its doors in 2009. BP/Arco and ADP are two of the largest businesses that were able to make a profit during these tough economic times. “La Palma’s officials and staff can be proud of its many accomplishments during the year,” said Shanahan, “including a 24 per cent drop in crime over the past year and preventing the closure of a Distinguished School, Steve Luther El-

ementary, because the City and parents worked together effectively to keep it open.” Last year, La Palma officials and staff had chosen a list of 13 goals that they hoped could be completed in a timely manner. Shanahan reported that presently all 13 have been completed or are in progress to be completed soon. The list included retaining the Top Ten businesses, improving and rehabilitating local community and shopping centers, granting a permit fee holiday for residents who want to remodel or improve their homes, beautification projects such as planting trees in the city, and the painting of all of the arterial walls. Shanahan announced that progress is being made in repairing the street gutters, curbs and sidewalks and providing more up-to-date sports facilities for residents of all ages. The Mayor was proud to announce

that La Palma and her sister city Hanam, Korea have continued to build a stronger bond, and representatives from both cities have been pleased with the progress. Other improvements included publishing an award winning quarterly newsletter and installing two electric Readerboards used to communicate to residents about future community events. Shanahan also noted that Business Week magazine listed the City as the Best Affordable Suburb in California and concluded, “Maybe we’re headed into less interesting times. La Palma has a bright future so long as our residents, businesses and local government continue to focus for a brighter tomorrow as we have been doing for the last 55 years.” A0424-Used Oil (Cerritos)

Cerritos pleased with important victory, coach “very disappointed” with execution By Loren Kopff The Cerritos softball team got the victory it needed last Friday against Norwalk to stay alive for the fourth and final automatic playoff spot in the Suburban League. But don’t think for one minute that head coach Bob Medina was ready to celebrate. Prior to the back end of the home and home series with the Lancers, Medina told his team he wouldn’t be satisfied unless they score 12 runs. The Lady Dons fell four runs short and barely staved off a late Norwalk comeback in an 8-6 victory. What this means for both teams is that they have split the season series and they are even in runs scored at 8-8. It won’t be determined until a later date what the next tiebreaker is according to the league constitution. Cerritos (9-12 overall, 3-5 in the league) came out blazing, scoring six runs in the bottom of the first and pounding out six of its dozen hits for the game, the third highest hit production of the season. But what Medina also witnessed was his team commit three costly errors in the game and as he put it, “stupid mistakes that were uncalled for”. Missed signs and poor execution, especially when Cerritos had the bases loaded with one out in the third, led to Medina’s displeasure. “Regardless of what we tell the kids, regardless of what we’re doing, I think they were so worried about messing up

sometimes that they messed up,” Medina said. “We had about five signs that we missed.” After losing 2-0 earlier in the week, the Lady Dons wasted little time in harassing Norwalk senior pitcher Elizabeth Jimenez, who was making her second start of the season. Jimenez pitched to five batters, giving up three hits and five runs before Norwalk head coach Paulette Gasporra called on junior pitcher Cassandra Caro. The Lady Dons weren’t fazed by the change because they collected three more hits in the inning. It was Caro who had picked up a two-inning save when Norwalk beat Cerritos. But this time around, the hosts ended with nine hits off of Caro. “I know everybody in our league will tell you we don’t like playing each other back to back but when you see a team once, you make your adjustments,” Gasporra said. “We prepared for fast pitching, we prepared for slow pitching,” Medina said. “It didn’t matter. I don’t care what they are. We have to be able to adjust to whoever and whatever. We planned for both of them.” As fast as Cerritos jumped all over the Norwalk pitching, the Lancers were poised to do the same against Cerritos freshman Kaylilani Minami. With one out in the top of the third, Caro singled and junior designated player Alexis Velazquez earned a walk. Following a strikeout, Minami surrendered three straight singles, including a two-run hit from junior catcher Claudia Torres. The Lancers (9-14, 3-5) scored five runs in the frame but the Lady Dons answered in their half when sophomore third baseman Alyssa Marquez singled, advanced on an error and went to third when sophomore second baseman Judges for the 35th annual event were Dance Instructor Jamie Gregor, Former Junior Miss Program Coordinator Jamie Herbon, Artesia Mayor Tony Lima, Instructor, Blue 13 Dance Company Achinta S.

Drianna Drulias was hit by a pitch on a controversial call to load the bases. On the very next pitch, sophomore catcher Sarah Smith was hit as well to bring in Marquez but a fly out and a double play ended what could have been another huge inning for the Lady Dons, who needed to beat Norwalk by at least three runs to own a temporary tiebreaker. The score remained 7-5 until the sixth when freshman first baseman Miki Okazaki singled and came home on a double from freshman designated player Bianca Espinosa. Part of the reason why the Lady Dons were holding their own in the game was the exceptional work behind the plate from Smith. She threw out a runner at second in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings as Minami faced the minimum during that span. “[Mayfair catcher Jessica Roper] has a great bat over there and I know Jess very well but Sarah is probably the best young, upcoming catcher in the league,” Medina said. “I really do think so.” Caro would lead off the top of the seventh with a single to left, her third hit of the game, and moved to second on a fielder’s choice when a botched double play attempt occurred. That set the stage for senior first baseman Courtney Fischer, who singled in Caro and moved to second on an error. However, Minami was able to get the next three batters and preserve the victory. Norwalk junior center fielder Lorraine Fitzgerald had a pair of hits as the Lancers will visit Artesia today and Mayfair on Wednesday in the second to last game of the regular season. “We go game by game because you never know if somebody is going to drop a game,” Gasporra said. “Every game to us is important and they know that. My girls have been around long enough to know where we stand as far as league is

concerned.” Espinoza went three for four while Drulias, Marquez and Okazaki all added a pair of hits as Cerritos will host La Mirada on Wednesday in its second to last series of the regular season. “We’re getting there; we’re going to get there,” Medina said. “I think we’ll fight and scratch. La Mirada, I think, is a better chance for us. If we can come out and play like this [offensively], we can beat La Mirada.” SUBURBAN LEAGUE BASEBALL

Norwalk sees familiar winning pattern against Artesia, keeps playoff hopes alive By Loren Kopff If Norwalk High School charged admission to its baseball games, fans would definitely get their money’s worth at their home games, especially Suburban League games. For the third straight home contest, the Lancers rallied in the late innings to escape with a one-run victory. This past Wednesday, Artesia senior pitcher Geovanni Vidal hit junior second baseman Skyler Bautista on the first pitch with the bases loaded which allowed senior catcher Ryan Martinez to score the winning run as Norwalk beat the Pioneers 4-3 in eight innings. The victory allowed Norwalk, winners of five straight games, to move one step closer to its first playoff trip since 2006. The team is now 10-11 overall, 6-3 in the circuit. On Apr. 16, Norwalk head coach Ruben Velasquez saw his team beat John Glenn 7-6 with a bases loaded hit batter rice, beans, tamales, chiles rellanos and a variety of desserts. Co-sponsors of the event were the Hawaiian Gardens Casino, Tri-City Regional Medical Center, Bear & Roses, and L.B. Miscelania.

in the bottom of the seventh. Five days later, the Lancers rallied for four runs in the bottom of the seventh to edge Cerritos 5-4. And against the Pioneers, the hosts scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game. The win avenged a season sweep by the Pioneers last season which basically cost the Lancers a trip to the playoffs. “My guys have been showing some heart the last few weeks and really digging down deep trying to figure out a way to win,” Velasquez said. “We’ve had some things go our way and have some things not go our way. In the end, we’re coming out with “W’s”. Vidal entered the bottom of the seventh having thrown 91 pitches but immediately gave up an infield single to sophomore left fielder German Vasquez and a single to senior designated hitter Chris Hernandez. A sacrifice followed by a run scoring groundout pulled the Lancers within a run. But senior shortstop Moises Acosta launched a double deep to left field, close to 375 feet away to bring in Hernandez. After the Pioneers threatened to score in the top of the eighth, Vidal walked Martinez to lead off the bottom half of the frame. Later on with two outs and runners on second and third, Hernandez singled to left to load the bases. Hernandez finished with three of Norwalk’s 10 hits. “We dropped him down a little bit in the lineup because he’s been struggling at times,” Velasquez said. “But I got what I wanted to see out of him, not so much the hits but at least making decent contact.” “We had opportunities and we could have won it,” said Artesia head coach Michael Gaoghagen. Artesia had trailed 1-0 until the top of the sixth when junior designated hitter Jose Esparza and senior left fielder Anthony Johnson deposited base hits to left field.

Jeff Gunter sent a deep fly ball to left to plate Esparza. Senior second baseman Tyler Guerra then reached on an error which allowed Johnson to touch home plate. The Pioneers (7-13, 3-4) thought they had added an insurance run off of Norwalk senior ace Jonathan Villalpando in the next inning when junior shortstop Osbaldo De La Rosa singled and eventually scored on Esparza’s second hit in as many at bats. But they couldn’t add on in extra innings despite having two on with two outs. Villalpando was staked to a 1-0 first inning lead when Martinez tripled in senior right fielder Juan Camacho. After that, Vidal would scatter four hits over the next five innings and did not have a runner reach third. Meanwhile, Villalpando worked the first five innings of two-hit ball, striking out five, dodging a scoring threat in the third and getting a double play in the fourth. Villalpando finished with 124 pitches, improved to 5-3 on the season and threw his fifth complete game, third in succession. “He started leaving the ball up a little bit and whether he wants to admit or not, he was getting a little tired,” Velasquez said of the late innings. “He had a couple of pitches that weren’t working for him consistently. He tried to dig down too deep.” Vasquez and junior third baseman Johnny Lopez each had a pair of hits as Norwalk will visit Artesia today and another win will not only further enhance its chances of finishing in third or possibly in second place, but further put the Pioneers on postseason life support. A Norwalk win plus a Mayfair loss to La Mirada would also put the Lancers in third place, ahead of Mayfair who they will visit on Wednesday. For the Pioneers, who had won five of

They were coming off a season sweep over John Glenn and are looking to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2007. “I think they knew that if they took care of the first game, there’s pretty much any position that could basically happen in the playoff [hunt],” Gaoghagen said. “Now we know we have to beat them [today] and then take care of business the rest of the way to move on up. “Offensively we haven’t been too bad,” Gaoghagen added. “The pitching has been a lot better and our defense has picked up.

Gahr’s defense falls apart again, throws away crucial game By Loren Kopff

son. “The biggest thing is we’re not finishing games,” said Gahr head coach Mike Rogers. “We have to dive for the ball and we’re not doing that and we have to be aggressive and we’re not. We’re not finishing games; we had that game. We hit the ball extremely hard.” Varela went through the Paramount lineup the first time with complete ease. She had thrown 33 pitches, struck out a pair and did not allow a base runner. At the same time, Pirates pitcher Yesenia Perez allowed three runners through the first five innings and got out of trouble after junior second baseman Jasmine Ruiz tripled with two outs in the fifth. But Diana De La Paz led off the bottom of the fourth with a base hit to center and went to third when Melissa Yepez reached on the first of the three blunders. Another error allowed De La Paz to come home and break the scoreless tie. The miscue proved costly because Yepez would later be caught in a run down, then Varela threw eight pitches in a nearly perfect fifth inning.

Continued from page 13 “She’s worked hard, she stepped her game up, and she’s pitching four or five times a week right now,” Rogers said. “She’s only going to get better. She’s a sophomore and she grew up a little bit today.” The Gladiators (5-13 overall, 2-3 in league), who were blanked by the Pirates 10-0 earlier in the season in a Downey Tournament contest, got on the board in the sixth when Ruiz singled with one out and stole second. She would score on a triple from senior shortstop Olivia Arredondo. But the defensive woes turned up again in the bottom half of the frame. With two outs, Marina Quijano reached on an error that would have been the third out. Consecutive singles to the outfield, a fielder’s choice and one more base hit to the outfield ended Varela’s day, but not before Paramount tacked on the insurance runs. Gahr tried to make a rally in the sev-

While in Korea , Nick met some of the American Peace Corp. members. “They wanted to learn Korean and so I taught them Korean and they taught me English; I had a very good time with them and they motivated me to come to America ,” said Nick. In 1982, the same year the couple married, Nick came to America to study and get a Masters degree in the import/export field. Julie followed Nick to the United States in 1985. “In between, I went back home only occasionally to visit,” Nick said. Nick attended Chapman University , in Orange , receiving his Masters in Business Administration. “I came to study and stayed,” he said. “I was going to go back and teach in college – that was my goal – but somehow America changed my mind.” Both of their children, Richard who attends UCI and Ann attending Cal State Long Beach were born in America . Nick is the only one of his family who has immigrated to the U.S. He said when he told his parents about coming to America , they advised him not to leave Korea , that he would be lonely without family and that it would be hard, along with the fact that they didn’t have money to give him to go to school in America because his father was already retired. “That’s okay,” he told them, “I’m young and I can make it.” He was 28 years old when he arrived in America . “My college education in Korea helped me in America , but studying and working wasn’t easy,” Nick said. “When I came to America I thought I could work and pay my college tuition

enth when junior right fielder Erica Willig and senior pinch hitter Erica Jackson each singled with two outs. Ruiz went two for three and increased her season average to .500 and the team got five for the game. Ruiz has reached base in all but two games this season. Gahr, which fell to Marymount 4-1 and Banning 8-0 last Saturday in the El Segundo Tournament, began the second round of league on Apr. 28 at Downey with a four-game losing streak. It will wrap up the El Segundo Tournament with a pair of games on Saturday, then host Dominguez on Tuesday and Lynwood on Thursday in preparation for its most important week of the season on May 11. “I felt that we were the better team and we let the game slip away,” Rogers said. “Now we have a tough task ahead of us. We have to go through the second half and hopefully we can upset Warren or Downey and if we get past Paramount and they don’t upset Warren or Downey, we go to the playoffs. We have to work harder than ever right now if we want to get to the playoffs.” and that it would be easy, but I worked and studied a lot. Without English I could not have made it,” he said. He worked two jobs on campus and talked to his professor - letting him know that he needed work. In one semester his money was almost gone. “I can’t go back to Korea because I’ve quit my job there,” he told his advisor. ”It took five years to finish my master’s degree; it was hard - but it is a good memory,” Nick said. His parents have visited him in America and are proud of him and say now that his decision was a good one. Nick is active in the Buena Park Chamber of Commerce as well as the Korean Chamber of Commerce that is now working in conjunction with the Buena Park Chamber to build a better rapport in the business world of the two cultures.“I was the first president of the Korean Chamber of Commerce and helped form the Korean Chamber,” Nick said. “We have a lot of Korean businesses in Buena Park – well over 100.” Nick’s Subway is one of the restaurants that recently participated in the Buena Park Chamber of Commerce’s annual “Taste of Buena Park” at the Holiday Inn of Buena Park.
