Authority prefers a downtown route for bullet train RECOMMENDATION LACKS DETAILS ON IMPACT TO DEVELOPED PROPERTIES Jaqueline McCool Reporter

➝ High Speed Rail, 8

Robert Eliason

The California HighSpeed Rail Authority's preferred route for the local section of the bullet train would cut directly through downtown Morgan Hill and could displace numerous homes and businesses. The HSRA staff will recommend to the authority board that the train use the existing Caltrain corridor from Morgan Hill through Gilroy. The HSRA board is scheduled to vote to adopt the recommendation, or a different route alternative, at its Sept. 17 meeting. This alternative would electrify the tracks currently used by Caltrain and run the high-speed rail through the existing Union Pacific Railroad corridor, which would create a high-speed rail

CRUISIN’ A young Independence Day reveler rides in a classic Ford Falcon in the Car Cruise ‘n Show,

which preceded the Fourth of July parade in downtown Morgan Hill

Let freedom ring INDEPENDENCE DAY BRINGS THOUSANDS TO MORGAN HILL As expected, Morgan Hill’s annual Fourth of July festivities brought thousands of visitors to town to enjoy classic scenes of Americana and celebrate patriotism. On July 3, local students performed at the annual Patriotic Sing. Later in the evening, live entertainment took over

the streets of downtown Morgan Hill for the Family Music Fest. On the morning of July 4, the Classic Car Cruise inched along the parade route just before the city’s official Independence Day parade circled its way through downtown Morgan Hill. It was the 143rd annual Morgan Hill Fourth of July parade, and it featured more than 100 floats, bands and other applicants. Before the car cruise and parade was the early morning Freedom 5K foot race.

From the downtown, the fun moved to the Outdoor Sports Center on Condit Road in the afternoon and evening of July 4. At the OSC, live bands entertained crowds of patriotic residents and visitors, who picnicked and danced on the grounds before the evening fireworks show. The Independence Day festivities were funded, sponsored and hosted by the non-profit Independence Day Celebrations. More photos on page 10

Morgan Hill’s property values booming COUNTY TOPS $500B FOR FIRST TIME Erik Chalhoub Business Editor

Morgan Hill helped spearhead a record-setting year for property values in Santa Clara County, according

to data released by Assessor Larry Stone on July 2. The annual assessment roll hit $516 billion, a 6.79 percent increase over the prior year, according to Stone. The assessment roll reflects the total net assessed value of all real and business property in the county as of Jan. 1.

Deputy Assessor David Ginsborg said it’s the first time property values in the county have totaled more than a half-trillion dollars. According to Ginsborg, Morgan Hill’s assessed property values weighed in at a little more than $10.2 billion, a roughly 8 percent increase over the previous

year. Morgan Hill experienced one of the highest growths in assessed value compared to other cities in the county, just below Milpitas, Campbell and Mountain View. Neighboring Gilroy also experienced a bump in value, coming in at $9.2 billion, a 6.4 percent increase.

Since the nation began pulling itself out of the Great Recession in 2010, Santa Clara County’s assessment roll has grown 53 percent, more than any time since the hyperinflation period in the early 1980s, according to Stone. Stone attributed the ➝ Property values, 4

The stunning earthquakes in the Mojave Desert July 4 and 5 reminded many residents in the Santa Clara Valley of the massive fault lines that frame the valley. The Calaveras Fault snakes south from the Anderson Dam in Morgan Hill through Hollister, where it connects with the iconic San Andreas Fault—which splits San Juan Bautista—north of the Pinnacles. The events also reminded many families of the need to have a home emergency kit. The US Department of Homeland Security has published a handy checklist so people can build their own kits, which could be less expensive than prepackaged kits available online or in stores. Most of the items in the DHS list are inexpensive and easy to find, and any one of them could save your life. Beyond the basics, DHS recommends you tailor your kits to unique needs your family might have, such as supplies for pets or seniors. After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items

Additional emergency supplies Consider




following items to your emergency supply kit based on your individual needs: •Prescription medications •Non-prescription medications such as pain relievers, antidiarrhea medication, antacids or laxatives • Glasses and contact lense solution • Infant formula, bottles, diapers, wipes, diaper rash cream • Pet food and extra water for your pet • Cash or traveler's checks • Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records saved electronically or in a waterproof, portable container • Sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person • Complete change of clothing appropriate for your climate and sturdy shoes • Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper to disinfect water • Fire extinguisher • Matches in a waterproof container • Feminine supplies and personal hygiene items • Mess kits, paper cups, plates, paper towels and plastic utensils • Paper and pencil • Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children For more information, visit https://www.ready. gov/build-a-kit.

As Morgan Hill police continue to piece together the details of the June 25 fatal shootings at the Ford Store Morgan Hill, and what led to the violence, officers say they have found no evidence that shooter Steven Leet had been harassed or bullied at his workplace. The precise reason that Leet was fired less than two hours before he shot his supervisors, Brian Light and Xavier Souto still has not been revealed by investigators. Police Sgt. Bill Norman said Leet had “some kind of issue” with a co-worker the previous day that might have contributed to his firing. He said this issue was likely part of a pattern of Leet’s behavior at the dealership, where he worked for about eight years. “We haven’t found any credible information to lead us to believe he was being bullied,” Norman said. Some news reports, quoting a San Jose neighbor of Leet’s, suggested that Leet, an auto parts counter clerk, might have been bullied by his co-workers before killing Light and Souto June 25, then turning the gun on himself. Norman said officers are still following up on numerous statements provided by witnesses to the shooting at the auto dealership on Condit

Steven Leet Road. These witnesses include co-workers who were present during the shooting. About 35 people were present at the Ford Store when gunshots rang out. Leet had been fired from the Ford Store about 4:15pm June 25, according to police. He left the building and sat in his vehicle for about 20 minutes before coming back into the store, where he lingered for over an hour before entering a back office with Light and Souto. After a conversation with them, Leet pulled out a handgun about 6pm and shot Souto then Light, police said. Light tackled Leet and tried to disarm him, but was unable to do so as he was shot at least twice. Leet, 60, then walked outside to the parking lot and shot himself as the first wave of police officers arrived, according to MHPD. Light, 59, was the Ford Store’s parts and service director. Souto, 38, was the company’s parts manager. Police have said they believe Leet did not plan the shooting before he

was fired June 25, based on a search of his home and vehicle and statements from various witnesses. He had two firearms on him at the June 25 shooting scene, and at least another 12 guns at his home—all acquired legally. Leet did not have a criminal record. Norman added that officers have learned through statements from Leet’s co-workers that Leet would “occasionally make a comment” about his firearms hobby while at the workplace, but never in a threatening manner, Norman said. Police have said that Leet has been described as a quiet individual who mostly kept to himself. Also unclear are the details of why Leet was allowed to return to his work area after he had been fired. Norman said, in general, Morgan Hill police will respond to calls reporting a fired employee or other unwelcome visitor who refuses to leave a business’s property. The objective of these calls is to make sure the unwelcome person leaves the property before causing any harm. “We’ve gone to those (calls) before, where we’re just the peacekeepers,” Norman said. “We’ll tell them to leave and not return or they will be arrested.” Morgan Hill police have said they did not receive any such calls from the Ford Store before Leet started shooting June 25.

Business values grew in 2018 “We are adding jobs in spite of record home prices, traffic jams, fears of trade wars and labor force constraints,” Stone said. On June 28, the assessor’s office mailed annual assessment notices to 492,423 property owners reporting each property’s 2019-2020 assessed value. The notice serves as the basis for the property tax bill that will be mailed in the fall. Property owners who disagree with the assessed value printed on their notice are encouraged to use the assessor’s “online tool,” enabling property owners to review the sale of comparable properties the assessor’s office used to determine their assessment. For information, visit Residential property owners who decide to file a formal assessment appeal are encouraged to request their appeal to be adjudicated by an independent residential value hearing officer, rather than the more formal three-member Assessment Appeals Board. “Property owners who disagree with the assessed value should not wait for the tax bill before filing an appeal, as the tax bill is mailed by the tax collector after the assessment appeal filing deadline,” Stone said. For information, call (408) 299-5088 or visit assessmentappeals.

➝ Property values, 1 county’s increase in the assessment roll to mega office and commercial property developments and major property acquisitions by tech companies. For instance, Apple and Google alone accounted for 3 percent of the total increase. Fifty percent of local property tax revenue generated in Santa Clara County goes to fund public education. However, the data is pointing to a “cooling down” of the economy, according to the assessor’s office. In addition to new construction and changes in ownership, the assessed values of business property, such as machinery, equipment, computers and fixtures, grew by 3.3 percent, nearly the same amount as the previous year. “There are early indicators that the economy may be in transition if for no other reason than we are due for a recession,” Stone said. “Nationally, job growth in 2019 has slowed dramatically. We are seeing a marked increase in ‘for rent/lease’ signs outside of major apartment complexes in addition to concessions such as free rent and reduced deposits to attract tenants, a clear signal that the peak of the apartment market has passed.” The unemployment rate in Santa Clara County is 2.1 percent, lower than the state at 4.3 percent and the nation at 3.6 percent.

GIMME SHELTER County officials and shelter staff get canine help at groundbreaking for new animal control shelter in San Martin.

Construction underway for new animal shelter SAN MARTIN CAMPUS WILL DOUBLE CAPACITY OF CURRENT SITE Staff Report

With a little help from four-legged friends, Santa Clara County broke ground June 26 on a new $35.3 million, 37,000 square-foot Animal Services Center in San Martin. The facility, set on 4.5 acres, is scheduled to open in 2021, in a state-of-the-art complex designed by Dreyfuss and Blackford Architecture, and built by general contractor XL Construction. This new facility will allow for enhanced animal care as county

resident and pet populations continue to grow, according to the county. “This will be a landmark facility and an inspiration for other animal care facilities across our state and country,” said District 1 County Supervisor Mike Wasserman. “Our state-ofthe-art Animal Services Center will also be a hub for South County activities, providing a much-needed community meeting space, with a lightfilled room will host up to 300 guests and will be available for public use.” The current shelter is a former San Martin residence that is more than 70 years old and lacks many amenities necessary in a modern animal facility, officials said. Animal Service staff members treat and home almost 4,000 dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, chickens and other animals every

year. The new construction will double the capacity, allowing for better care from staff and volunteers. A 2,500 square foot barn will make the county’s Animal Services Center the only facility in the region designed to house livestock. For the first time, there will be a space for advanced veterinary care, and room for our exceptional staff and volunteer corps. A multi-use community space will be available for shelter events, community endeavors, and youth organizations. Additional amenities include a landscaped open-air courtyard that functions as a central meet-and-greet location for adoptable dogs, sound-absorbent dog kennels, free-roaming cat condos, a small animal area and a veterinary clinic.

Causes of refugee Crisis


have introduced legislation to address the root causes of the refugee crisis in Central America before it reaches our border: the Northern Triangle and Border Stabilization Act. This is a comprehensive, five-pronged strategy to combat the underlying violence and instability that compels thousands of refugees to flee Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. President Trump’s punitive and chaotic policies at the border have exacerbated this humanitarian situation, leading to death and unforgivable conditions for migrant women, children and families. It is the responsibility of Congress to intervene when the Executive Branch isn’t doing its job. That is why I introduced legislation to take a humanitarian and regional approach to address the root causes of forced migration in Central America before it reaches our border. The introduction of this bill follows the recent deaths of migrant children who were being held by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This tragedy underscores the severity of the humanitarian situation at the southern border as well as the unacceptable conditions migrants endure while being held in CBP facilities. These facilities are understaffed and underequipped to hold and process the thousands of people who cross the border each day. This has resulted in children and families being subjected to extended detentions, gross overcrowding, freezing temperatures, little access to medical care, and sleeping on floors, among other inhumane conditions. To help alleviate these problems, the Northern Triangle and Border Stabilization Act would: • Address the root causes of migration from Central America. This bill would create a five-year, inter-agency plan that offers humanitarian and development aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras—among the most dangerous countries in the world—and ties larger aid packages with those countries’ ability

to reduce violence, corruption and poverty; • Offer resources to nations so they’re able to accept more refugees. This bill would provide financial support and technical assistance to neighboring countries so that they can increase their capacity to receive and care for refugees and adjudicate asylum claims, thereby reducing the need for refugees to make the dangerous journey north; • Manage refugee claims regionally. This bill would establish Designated Processing Centers throughout Central America to register and process refugees for resettlement to the US or elsewhere; as well as administer better programs to reunite children with US relatives, reduce visa backlogs, and match migrants with U.S. businesses seeking temporary workers. • Improve conditions for migrants held at the border. This bill would provide additional staff to CBP facilities and authorize improvements to their infrastructure, as well as hire child welfare and medical professionals to care for and treat children and families held in US custody. The bill also creates new criminal penalties for smuggling and trafficking. • Promote efficient processing of asylum seekers. This bill would increase the number of US immigration judges and add courtroom staff to expedite the processing of asylum cases and reduce the immigration court backlogs. It also strengthens due process by providing legal counsel to unaccompanied children. The Northern Triangle and Border Stabilization Act complements provides CBP medical and pediatric experts capable of keeping migrants healthy and helping to prevent future deaths and also would improve the system by which migrant and refugee claims are processed to decrease the need for individuals to travel to our border.

Since 1985, National Parks and Recreation Month has been celebrated every July to highlight the vital role local parks and recreation play in conservation, health and wellness, and social equity efforts in communities all across the country. Parks and recreation departments provide essential management and maintenance services for many local parks, trails and beaches, respond to citizens’ and visitors’ questions and suggestions and provide information on public use of beaches and parks. July is a perfect time to try out the offerings at your local parks and recreation centers. From special events, sports leagues, children’s exploration opportunities and everything in between, your local parks and recreation department has a wide variety of programs that are not only fun and affordable but also bring the community together. Through organized activities offered by parks and recreation departments, individuals of all ages are able to get out and be active with their community. These programs promote happy healthful communities for all. Maintaining and expanding open space is a key responsibility of parks and recreation departments. Well maintained and designed parks and trails connect communities and allow for families and friends to connect with each other in a beautiful setting. Parks are often the place for local gatherings that make all of our respected cities unique and special. I encourage everyone to get out and explore all of the great parks and recreation options your city has to offer. Providing a break from the buzz of everyday routines, parks offer an escape and a little reminder that there is beauty all around. So next time you drive by a park this summer, take a minute to enjoy these local treasures. Find out what is being planned at a national, state or local park by visiting the National Park Service website:; the California State Parks website:; or your local Parks and Recreation website. Sen. Bill Monning represents the 17th State Senate District, which includes all of San Luis Obispo and Santa Cruz counties, and portions of Monterey and Santa Clara counties.

Rail proposal lacks details, funding ➝ High Speed Rail, 1

Special to the Times

stop in Gilroy. While there would be no stop in Morgan Hill, Northern California Regional Director for the authority, Boris Lipkin, said the newly electrified Caltrain tracks will be a benefit to Morgan Hill. City of Morgan Hill Community Engagement Officer Maureen Tobin said the HSRA’s recommendation was not what the city staff had hoped for, but that the Caltrain electrification could be positive for the community. She told the Times that the authority will give a formal presentation on the recommended route to the Morgan Hill City Council at the July 17 meeting and that the council would make official statements on the route at that time. Electrifying the tracks will allow for more commuter trains to go between San Jose, Morgan Hill and Gilroy, Lipkin said. Other options for the high-speed rail included viaducts that would run alongside US-101, bypassing both Morgan Hill and Gilroy’s downtown areas, or creating a completely new track between Monterey Road and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Lipkin said the impacted cities were consulted on the route alternatives and that the fourth option for a blended track would have the least amount of property impact. However, Morgan Hill business and city leaders have been vocal about their concerns over the blended option, worrying about noise and other

disruptions to the newly developed area. The rail authority’s July 2 announcement of the recommendation does not guarantee this will be the final route for the HSR through San Jose south to Gilroy; the authority will host several town halls over the summer to hear from the community and the board will vote on the alternative at the Sept. 17 board meeting. The Northern Californian portion of the route has never been fully funded. The Authority has recently run into more funding trouble after the Federal Rail Administration sent a notice of funding withdrawal, which would cause the highspeed project to lose nearly a billion dollars. The Morgan Hill portion of the route, as recommended by authority staff, would pass through the existing Union Pacific tracks on Depot Street adjacent to Morgan Hill’s downtown. Lipkin told the Times that this route would add two high-speed rail tracks to the existing rail lines. He said that in most places the plans fit within the existing space, but other portions of the route would need to be expanded out to accommodate. Lipkin did not specify which areas along the train tracks would need to be expanded to fit the bullet train, or how far they would have to be expanded. There would be platforms on each side of the tracks and gates on either side. In Morgan Hill, the

RECOMMENDED ROUTE The authority staff has recommended “alternative 4” which will use the Union Pacific Corridor

to go through downtown Morgan Hill and Gilroy and tunnel through Pacheco Pass. areas surrounding the train tracks are densely populated; Lipkin said the new rail would avoid a new train-themed city park that is right next to the track on Depot Street. When the train passes through, two barricades would come down to ensure traffic cannot pass. Despite coming through Morgan Hill’s downtown, Lipkin said, “Alternative 4 has the least impact when it comes to displacement.”

Gilroy station still planned

The recommended route for the High-Speed Rail in Gilroy will create a rail hub in the city just outside of downtown. Other alternative routes for Gilroy would have created a stop near the Gilroy

outlets. A stop has always been planned for Gilroy. “The maximum train speed would be 110 mph where operations would be blended between San Jose and Gilroy,” said the authority information sheet. “South and east of Gilroy, speeds would increase up to 220 mph in the dedicated HighSpeed Rail portion of the alignment.” The Gilroy hub has been seen as a major economic opportunity for the city.

Tunnel through the pass

The portion of the highspeed rail that will pass through Pacheco Pass will include embankments, viaducts and a tunnel. There will be a 1.5 mile

tunnel near Casa De Fruta and a 13.5 mile tunnel through Pacheco pass. “There would be a long tunnel around the northern arm of the San Luis Reservoir and viaducts over the California Aqueduct, Delta-Mendota Canal, and I-5,” said the High-Speed Rail information packet. Tunneling through Pacheco is a major funding obstacle for the authority on a project that has never been fully funded and is currently under threat of losing all federal funding. Lipkin said the authority is just working toward getting plans in place and will deal with funding challenges once construction is imminent. “There’s a number of years of work in front of us before we’re ready to issue

the big construction contracts,” said Lipkin. After the authority board approves an alternative, Lipkin said it will take about two years to obtain environmental clearances and advance the designs. Community meetings will be held this summer to collect feedback on the recommended route: Aug. 8 in Gilroy; Aug. 21 in Los Banos; Aug. 15 in San Jose; and a Sept. 17 board meeting in San Jose. According to the HSRA, feedback can also be given by email at san., by phone at 800-4558166, or by mail: Northern California Regional Office California High-Speed Rail Authority 100 Paseo De San Antonio, Suite 300 San Jose, CA 95113.

NEW LEAD BULLDOG Viliame “Billy” Vuniwai was promoted to head coach after serving as an assistant coach at Sobrato High last season. The Bulldogs have strung together a couple of strong seasons and look to continue their success with Vuniwai at the helm. PREP FOOTBALL

Leading Sobrato football SOBRATO HAS A NEW COACH MANNING THE SIDELINES emanuel lee Sports Editor

Robert Eliason

Viliame “Billy” Vuniwai hopes to lead the Sobrato High football team back to the Blossom Valley League West Valley Division championship. The Bulldogs, who won the division title two years ago and finished second last season, have Vuniwai as their new coach after Tony Holmes departed after the completion of the 2018 season. Vuniwai, who also goes by Coach V, was an assistant under Holmes a year ago. “The good thing is this coaching staff has been intact, so we continue to push the weight room and getting them reps,” he said. “We’ve been pretty busy with 7 on 7s (passing tournaments), going to Los Banos to Mitty for some good tournaments. And we have a couple more coming up (before the summer session is over).” One of those includes a 7 on 7 tournament that Sobrato is hosting on July 19 at 5 p.m. As of last week, the school had six teams confirmed to play, with a strong possibility of eight total teams when it’s all said and done. In the 7 on 7s, teams take turns scrimmaging each other with no blocking or contact allowed. Players do not wear pads in 7 on 7s, which emphasize speed of play and the skill positions.

“It’ll be a high-flying rotation with a lot of kids getting reps,” said Vuniwai, who played at Menlo-Atherton High and San Jose State. “There will be a lot of balls flying in the air, and it seems like everyone is into the passing game now.” Vuniwai added the team has been doing well in its strengthtraining program, installing offensive and defensive schemes along with game plans for both the varsity and junior varsity teams. “We’ve got a good group,” Vuniwai said. “We have a lot of experienced, returning guys who are ready to go.” Some of the key returning players include running back/ safety Jesse Redmond, quarterback J.T. Sheets, receiver/safety Jonah Turagavou, middle linebacker Orion Woods, cornerback Jackson Gonzales and cornerback Raymond Valles. Sheets blossomed as the team’s starting quarterback last year, and Redmond was a tour de force almost every time he touched the ball. Agile enough to get to the perimeter and strong enough to run between the tackles, Redmond put up three 100-yard plus rushing games a year ago and is expected to be even better in the upcoming season. Turagavou also has plenty of playmaking ability, with his 6-foot-4 frame providing the team with a big target in the passing game. Woods provides playmaking ability on the defensive side of the ball, and possesses tremendous leadership qualities. Gonzales and Valles had breakout years as defensive

THE COACHES New Sobrato High football coach Viliame Vuniwai (right) is flanked by top assistant Luis Lopez, who also serves as one of the Bulldogs’ wrestling coaches. Vuniwai said Lopez is a blessing to have on the team. backs in 2018, and the Bulldogs are hoping they can lockdown the opposing team’s best offensive players once again. As any high school football coach will attest, coaching is just half the job that comes with the position. For a relatively small school like Sobrato, the team must be proficient with its fundraising to provide all of the necessary costs of fielding a team. “We’ve been working really hard financially because we were struggling,” Vuniwai said. “But the boys have really done well in

raising funds, and we do have a gofundme page that has really been a blessing for us because it’s been able to generate money to help pay for our helmets, bus transportation and the basic expenses. Tony did a great job trying to keep the program afloat and keeping it moving forward. He definitely had challenges for support from the community and from the administration. But for the most part so far, it’s been really good what the community has done to support the team with the gofundme page.

Hopefully, we’ll get some turnout for our 7 on 7 as well.” Vuniwai looks to bring a tremendous amount of passion and coaching acumen from a life spent coaching a variety of sports, mostly in Hawaii where he spent several years of his life before moving back to the Bay Area three years ago. When Sobrato hosts the 7 on 7 tournament, Vuniwai said it’ll have a pep rally and Luau in the hopes of raising some money for the program and sparking interest in the program.

AMENDED NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF FRANCISCO REPREITO CHAVEZ, CASE NO. 18PR185028 FILED: 7/08/2018. To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: FRANCISCO REPREITO CHAVEZ, FRANCISCO CHAVEZ, FRANK CHAVEZ. A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by JESSE AGUIRRE CHAVEZ, in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara. The PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that: JESSE AGUIRRE CHAVEZ be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent's will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 8/2/2019 Time: 9:00 a.m. Dept: 13, Superior Court of California County of Santa Clara, 191 N. First Street, San Jose, California, 95113. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.  Petitioner: JESSE CHAVEZ 681 ARNOLD DR., GILROY, CA 95020 408-710-7294 (PUB GD 7/12, 7/19, 7/26)
