Old Heralds Now Online Thanks to Library Preservation Project By Brian Simon Want to find out who was on the City Council in the 1950s or what you could buy a home for during World War I? Now you can do so with the click of a mouse, thanks to a three-and-a-half-year effort culminating in the digitization of 79 microfilm rolls of the El Segundo Herald. Viewers can now access nearly 5,000 editions of the longtime community paper on the El Segundo Public Library’s website by going to www.eslib.org and clicking on the “El Segundo Herald Newspaper Database” link on the left-hand menu. The database home page includes search options to zero in on particular years, topics and other items of interest. One can find newspaper images by keyword or date and viewers may also create a free user account to save their searches for later review. When it became painfully aware by early 2011 that much of the older Herald microfilm had begun to deteriorate to the potential point of no return, El Segundo Public Library staff met with members of the Library Board of Trustees, the Friends of the El Segundo Library, and Herald officials to discuss preservation options. “The microfilm was in danger of being lost forever after decades of use by community members and researchers,” explained Library Director Debra Brighton. “Something had to be done.” The meeting resulted in a staff directive to locate a service capable of digitizing the microfilm and to look into options to place the images online for perpetuity. The research led to the recruitment of a Bethesda, Maryland-based company called PTFS (Progressive Technology Federal Systems) that had garnered rave reviews for its recent work with the Torrance and Whittier public libraries to digitize collections for those cities. “PTFS would scan the El Segundo Herald microfilm images and would also provide software to access the images online,” said Senior Librarian, Support Services Mark Herbert, the point person for the project. However, getting the job done wouldn’t come cheap, with a hefty price tag of $45,000. The Friends—which had put away monies anticipating this project--subsidized the first $24,000 out of its own funds to cover the initial conversion costs and then embarked on an ultimately successful community donation and grant campaign to raise the remaining $21,000 to pay for software acquisition and server hosting. The Herald itself was one of the donors, kicking in $2,000 at the beginning of the outreach effort in 2012. Still, the process was lengthy and painstaking. Rather than risk that the entire microfilm collection might get lost or damaged during shipment, the Library sent out the rolls in batches—with a couple of small test runs early on to ensure the project would go off without a hitch. Over about a year period, PTFS scanned all the microfilm and converted the images to PDF and .tif files. Then the Information Services Division worked with PTFS to install the “ArchivalWare” image viewing software onto the City’s server and to upload the PDF See Library, page 13 At Studio Antiques, You Find What You’re Looking For By Laura Sorensen In all of our lives there is an undercurrent of things. Things you want; things you don’t want; things you can’t get rid of; the one thing you can’t find that would make your life complete. This current flows from upscale showrooms to garage sales, and through all of our own homes. Do we want more, or do we want less? And who can tell us what to do with the things that we have? Enter Sally and Laurence Martin, owners of Studio Antiques, stage left, with a flourish. This dynamic duo has the knowledge, the research, and the interest to appraise, in the words of that internet meme, “All the Things.” I sat outside the store with the Martins, and they seemed to know everyone that passed by Studio Antiques, which has been located at 337 Richmond Street in El Segundo since 1987. That’s the benefit of being in business for 26 years, and the Martins are a gregarious couple who obviously enjoy saying hello. Laurence is British, originally from Bournemouth and still a fan of AFC Bournemouth, known locally as the Cherries: kind of punk rock, artistically ripped shirt, tendency to break into his own language. Like if Keith Richards was in the appraising business. Sally seems more of a down-home girl, knowing the issues affecting the city, taking care of the details with a kind smile and a bucket of chitchat at the ready. They have been married 21 years; they work together, they travel together, and they are on TV together. Just a bit of that kind of togetherness is See Studio Antiques, page 3 Page 2 November 13, 2014 Wedding Announcement Tara Church and Chad Hummel Tara Church and Chad Hummel married Oct. 25, 2014 at Hotel Bel Air.

Studio Antiques enough for some people, but the Martins have been making it work for decades. Their first very successful TV job together was on the A&E reality show Storage Wars, about bidding on abandoned storage lockers and hoping to find something saleable. The Martins were part of the expert appraisal team, and then were offered roles in a show with a similar premise called Baggage Battles. At first, Baggage Battles went to airports and the Martins got to buy suitcases and bags sight unseen, plastic bags full of jewelry, or whatever unclaimed items the airports had lying around. The show expanded to other venues and it became extremely popular, mostly outside the US. “It was an adventure everywhere we went,” said Laurence. The Martins have traveled across the U.S., to London and other European venues, to Toronto, and lately even to Johannesburg. “Like Beatlemania,” added Laurence, reminiscing on the welcome he got in South Africa. Then when the Martins come back home, the fans return the favor with a visit of their own. “The thing is, people come to El Segundo from all over the world,” said Sally. Laurence from front page added that people come almost every day to meet the two of them and see Studio Antiques. A reader might be tempted not to believe this, but let me verify. During our interview, a nice couple drove up with a big camera: they were Anna and Tom, and they were on a sightseeing See Studio Antiques, page 14 Page 3 School Spotlight Spotlight on ESHS Club “Support Our Troops” By Cece Stewart, Sophomore at El Segundo High School For some high school students, Veterans Day on Tuesday was simply a day that we got off from school. For others it is a day that has deep meaning, particularly for El Segundo High School club members of Support Our Troops. Noelle “Bellsy” Hale, a sophomore at ESHS, founded Support Our Troops in association with the non-profit organization Operation Gratitude, whose mission is to bring comfort to wounded veterans and currently deployed servicemen and women through the assembling and dispatching of care packages worldwide. In order to fulfill this mission the club holds donation drives to collect items for the packages, and hosts letter-writing campaigns to allow students and community members to convey their gratitude to members of the military through personal letters and care packages. Those in uniform are deeply touched by receipt of these packages and warm sentiments, including ESHS alumni Kieran Roberts, who received a Support Our Troops care package and was excited to hear from us back here and was very thankful for what we sent him. Bellsy found the inspiration to begin the club in her older brother Isaiah, a 2011 graduate of ESHS, currently finishing his senior year at The Bellsy Hale, founder and President of ESHS Support Our Troops.

MED EL SEGUNDO HERALD November 13, 2014 Page 5 One Man’s Opinion Another Man’s Opinion By Gerry Chong The party’s over / It’s time to call it a day / They’ve popped your pretty balloon / And taken the moon away / It’s time to wind up the masquerade / Take off your make-up / Just make your mind up / The piper must be paid – nat king cole On the morning after the election, like a common drunk, America woke up and blinked its eyes. A shadow of its former self, it emerged from a blind alley, and wondered where the last six years had gone. Truly, it was a binge of the highest order: Unlimited spending and unlimited debt. World’s highest income tax rates. Sky-bound regulations. Free food. Subsidized car purchases. Free phones. Housing subsidies. Unlimited money printing. Government directed and funded healthcare. Government spying on Americans. Government spying on allies. Inept appointees administering bloated bureaucracies. 92 million unemployed. Part time and entry level jobs being touted as “job growth.” The racial divide and the gender divide growing. The chasm between rich and poor exploding. Unrestricted illegal immigration. Failed foreign policy. The drunk tried to remember. Six years! Seemed like everything was fuzzy and out of focus, a scary movie that had somehow morphed into reality. He tried to remember what he had drank to get him into this stupor, but could only remember some red-colored KoolAid. The container’s label featured the smiling face of a benign savior. Everything seemed so cool. So reassuring. So, so politically correct. But now the hang over must begin…. the piper must be paid. Pass the aspirin and a soothing broth. By Cristian Vasquez On Nov. 1 Brittany Maynard decided to end her life with medication that was prescribed to her by a doctor, and despite the tragedy of her circumstances, I was comforted by the fact that there at least some states in our country that will facilitate such a decision. Maynard had a brain tumor which doctors could do nothing about so the outlook for the remaining years of what natural life she had left was bleak. So when Maynard decided to end her life and die with dignity, her personal ordeal became a national debate about the right to end one’s life. Maynard and her family moved to Oregon, where she would have access to the state’s Death with Dignity Act. Under this law, terminally ill Oregonians have the right to end their lives by voluntary self-administering a dose of life-ending medications. These medications are prescribed by a physician. Sadly I have experienced having a loved one commit suicide; I have also witness a close friend attempt suicide and the experiences were both heartbreaking and scary. At the same time I have seen people who are terminally ill wither away into a painful and agonizing death. Sadly these people did not have the option to take the steps that the State of Oregon provided for Maynard. It is worth noting that to my knowledge, assisted suicide was not something they considered. However, watching them suffer and become a shell of their former physical selves was too much. Maybe I’m a coward. Or my faith in God or a higher power is weak and hence I’m The Party’s Over Perhaps the aspirin could be a bipartisan commission similar to the Military Base Closure Commission, convened to comb through the budget and list those programs that have outgrown their usefulness, and whose costs exceed their benefits. Congress could vote on an up-or-down basis to eliminate waste. Perhaps the broth could include ingredients favored by both political parties. For example, an energy policy that approved the Keystone Pipeline, encouraged fracking and on-shore oil exploration would drive down the cost of energy. That policy would have four critical benefits: First, it would create real jobs. Second, it would lower the cost of living for all Americans. Third, it would make American products more cost competitive in the world market. Fourth, it would reduce American dependence on volatile Middle East oil suppliers. Some of the benefits thus derived could be used to support bonds to improve highways and other infrastructure, and to support R&D to make alternative energy sources more cost competitive and more reliable . . . all without funding private companies like Solyndra, and all without raising income taxes or incurring more debt. And so the drunk starts with a shower to scrub off the detritus of his binge. Cleansed, he lies back to wait for the aspirin and broth to cure his aching head and rebelling stomach. With eyes half closed he vows never to drink from the Leftist KoolAid again.

However, despite the agony of knowing that someone that you love took their own life, watching someone you love suffer as they await death is infinitely worse. There is little that can convince that it is better for someone with Parkinson’s Disease, who is on a death timeline, should sit there and suffer rather than die with dignity, if they desire. I accept that some people will hold on to their faith, or the strength that made them amazing people when healthy and simply wait for death to come. Yet, some of us aren’t like that and there should be an option for people like Maynard who would rather avoid the agony of long hospital stays, the inability to care for one’s self if in the end death is unavoidable. I’m not questioning the morality of this issue. Furthermore, it’s not an attack on people of faith or their convictions. The fact is that with or without the right to assisted suicide provided by the state like in Oregon, my peers of faith can still decide to use their faith as they await death in agonizing pain. However, without the option on the table we are all made to suffer even if we want a less painful and faster solution. My prayers go out to Maynard’s family and my praise to the State of Oregon. Making such a decision has to be gut-wrenching to say the least, but if I’m down to my last year of life and it is scheduled to be a painful one, I would like the option of assisted suicide without having to leave the comfort of my home state. • Burkley & Brandlin LLP ATTORNEYS AT LAW Living Trusts/Wills, Probate, Employment Law, Personal Injury Trust and Estates Litigation, Business Litigation, Civil Litigation 310-540-6000 Lifetime El Segundo Residents *AV Rated (Highest) Martindale - Hubbell / **Certified Specialist Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law, State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization Brian R.

Page 6 November 13, 2014 Trade Kobe? By Adam Serrao Any true basketball fan all but saw it coming. Unless you’re a hopeless Los Angeles Lakers apologist, you knew that the team was going to be, well, not good this year. They certainly haven’t let down. Let’s face it, the Lakers are bad. Very bad. Maybe even worse than last year’s bad which was an all-time franchise record breaking bad. The Philadelphia 76ers are pretty bad too, but it is known across the league that they are trying to tank this year in order to continue to build a team full of young players that will, in two years, compete. These Lakers, though, led by Kobe Bryant, have already lost Steve Nash and one of their brightest young stars, Julius Randle, for the entire season. What does that leave? Kobe attempting to carry a team of has-beens and never-weres on his back through a minefield that is the Western Conference of the NBA. You can’t help but feel bad for the 16-time AllStar. With such a horrible future in sight and certainly no championship aspirations on the horizon barring a miracle or act of God, should the Los Angeles Lakers trade Kobe Bryant? Coming into this season all of the talk surrounded Byron Scott as the new head coach of the Lakers and how he was going to improve the team on defense. Can we have Mike D’Antoni back? So far, the Lakers have played next to zero defense this years, most notably having given up 127 points to the Golden State Warriors, 119 points to the Phoenix Suns, and over 110 points in every one of their first five games this season except the home opener to the Houston Rockets, in which they gave up 108 and lost by 18 points. The offense doesn’t get much better. Sure, its early on in the season and guys are still trying to find themselves, but See Kobe, page 12 Sports Shorts Eagles Water Polo Take League Title By Henry Stuart On Tuesday, November 4th, in the longawaited game to determine the Ocean League Championship, the Eagles overwhelmingly took down the Vikings of Santa Monica by a score of 9 to 3. As a matter of note, it has been five years since El Segundo defeated Santa Monica and won a league title. Riley Brady was the coach and Beau Blacksten was a player. Opening the game, Joe Doucette scored twice in succession to dampen the crowd noise. Taking advantage of Viking turnovers and ejections, Paul Bibas and Anthony Rotolo each fired shots past the goalkeeper to close the first period. After the second quarter began, Santa Monica tallied once on an outside shot from the wing. Then Anthony Rotolo scooped up a rebound and slipped it past the Viking goalkeeper. El Segundo used their effective defense to close down Santa Monica’s offensive efforts. Even with Eagle players ejected, the defense clamped down on the Viking attempts at the extra man offense. El Segundo was simply better at that aspect of the game. During that time the Eagles added another goal. The score after three See Sports Shorts, page 14 EL SEGUNDO HERALD Eagles get Defensive about Ocean League Title By Gregg McMullin Photos by Gregg McMullin unless otherwise noted. What could be better about a high school football game. The El Segundo Eagles were gunning for their first undefeated regular season in 26 years and first Ocean League title. The only team standing in their way of perfection was a physical intimidating Santa Monica Vikings team ready to be the spoiler. The last time El Segundo was in position to go undefeated through the regular season was the 1988 team. Players such as Eric Evans, Rob White, Rob Croxall, Matt Wise, Jeremy Carr and Donovan Gallatin helped spearhead that perfect run. The Eagles have been a high scoring team along with one of the best underrated defenses in the South Bay if not the entire CIF Southern Section. The Vikings, on the other hand, have an equally talented high profile defense to help offset an offense led by a talented freshman quarterback. The game resembled David versus Goliath and the Eagles had the powerful sling shot in quarterback Lars Nootbaar’s arm. Wide-out Nick Karsseboom delivered the knockout blow with a 46 yard catch and run touchdown with 6:10 left in the fourth quarter. The Eagles had overcome a 13-3 deficit in the fourth quarter and won 17-13 with Karsseboom’s incredible catch. Before the season started, the game on the schedule most people were looking forward to was the one against Santa Monica. They have been one of the best teams in the Ocean League for years. This is a team that has advanced to the CIF playoffs in eight of the past 11 years including this season. Eagle supporters were certainly skeptical on how they would do against a school with 3700 students (versus 1257 enrolled at El Segundo). “They can only play 11 at a time,” said long time assistant coach Jason Parker. “I’ll take the heart of our 11 against anyone’s.” This game was high on emotion on both sidelines and spilled over into the stands. The large crowd at Santa Monica College was evenly divided by the large contingent of fans from El Segundo and their hosts. Had it been played at Hazletine Field it would have been an overflow standing-room-only crowd. The winner of this game would be Ocean League champions. For the Eagles it would mean their second consecutive outright league crown. For the Vikings it would force a threeway tie with the Eagles and Lawndale. A coin flip would have favored the Eagles entering the playoffs as the top seed from the Ocean League. “We didn’t want to share our league title with anyone so we knew what was at stake,” said Nootbaar. The Vikings tested the El Segundo’s run defense to open the first series of the game but with linebackers Joey Garza, Jake Barone and Jackson Walz on the prowl they stuffed Zach Cooper for short gains. Then Walz and Mike Villa sacked Isaiah Johnson for a big loss to force a punt. On the Eagles’ first drive Nootbaar directed the Eagles on an 11-play drive that stalled at the Viking’s 8-yard line. During the drive Nootbaar See Eagles, page 8 WE MOVED!! VISIT OUR LARGER STORE, BIGGER & BETTER! SUITE 10. We sell custom hockey equipment. Repair skates. And sharpen blades.

Jake Palmer gave the Eagles a 3-0 lead with a 25-yard field goal. On El Segundo’s next possession they found out what type of vaunted defense the Vikings had. The Eagles had yet to face the physical talents and speed that Santa Monica possessed. Nootbaar had thrown 174 consecutive passes this season without an interception. He threw a pass intended for Karsseboom that was tipped and intercepted by All-Ocean League defensive back Corde Sweet. Sweet returned the ball 73 yards for a touchdown. Dewayne Polk blocked the PAT and the Eagles found themselves trailing 6-3. The defense for El Segundo has been so good that they’ve given up just 48 points all season long during their first nine games. Santa Monica methodically moved the ball down field during an extended 12-play drive that was capped by a touchdown pass from Johnson to Sweet to give the Vikings a 13-3 halftime lead. The Eagles had found themselves with their largest deficit of the year. It was an uncomfortable feeling but Eagle head coach Steve Shevlin challenged his team and the adversity they faced in the second half. “I just told them to stay withy our game plan and leave it all on the field,” he said. The third quarter went scoreless and the Eagles were in a scoring drought. They had yet to go scoreless in consecutive quarters or score at least one touchdown in the first three quarters of a game this season. Things would on another. Ryan Kelly picked up a first down and a pass interference call against the Vikings moved the ball to their 6-yard line. From there Nick Karsseboom catches the winning TD pass. Photo by Marcy Dugan.

Leading 13-3 late in the third quarter Santa Monica’s ground game was to be tested and with it the turning point of the game. On fourth and short near mid-field the Vikings decided to go for the first down. Johnson took the snap and attempted to push for a first down but Duncan Papalii and Mike Villa stuffed him for a loss and the Eagles took over at the their own 49 yard line. Nootbaar then demonstrated why he’ll be named the MVP of the Ocean League. He scrambled for six yards on one play and sixteen El Segundo defense makes a BIG 4th down stop. Photo by Marcy Dugan. Players salute the El Segundo Fans for all of their support. Photo by Marcy Dugan. Nootbaar used his speed on a bootleg to get into the end zone and cut their deficit to 13-10. The Vikings went with their rushing game and had moved the ball to the 50 yard line with 6:55 remaining in the game. On fourth and five the Vikings decided to go for a first down but the Eagles came up huge. With Johnson being chased by Polk he passed towards Sweet but the pass was broken up by Midgey Hale and the Eagles took over. One thing that has stood out this season has been a big play after a defensive stand and this time was no different. Kelly picked up four tough yards on the first play and then Nootbaar found Karsseboom in stride behind the Vikings secondary for a 46-yard touchdown catch and a 17-13 lead. On Santa Monica’s next possession the Vikings were moving the ball well. But Polk’s sack of Johnson all but ended any hopes of a comeback. On fourth and 22 at the 50 yard line and trailing 17-13 with 4:34 remaining the Vikings punted their hopes away. From there Nootbaar and Wagner-Bagues ran the clock out and El Segundo had done the unthinkable, a perfect run through the Ocean League. After the handshake between the two teams the entire Eagle’s team rushed over to thank their supporters in the bleachers in a classy show of appreciation. “They’ve been there for us all year long and they believed in what we could do so we (the team) wanted to thank See Eagles, page 12 Dewayne Polk sacked Santa Monica quarterback Isaiah Johnson for a big loss late in the game.

You’ve tripped over the same thing in the living room too many times. Now you’ve picked it up to finally put it away and you realize - you have nowhere to put it. You have too much clutter in your home. So what do you do? How do you decide where to start so you can reduce the clutter in your home and make your walkways safe once more? Getting started is easier than you think. If you want to take control of clutter, get a few boxes - start with one for each room in your home and begin organizing one room at a time. Begin this initiative by removing everything on top of your cabinets, tables and in bookcases, and then place it all in a box, says Keith McCleary, academic director of Interior Design at The Art Institute of York - Pennsylvania. If there are other random accessories in the room, remove those, too. Keep just the basic furnishings. Now sit with the room in its simplest form for a short time. “In room design, make good decisions about what you choose to put in the room and, often more importantly, in what you choose to leave out,” McCleary says. “Simplicity and clean lines make a room feel livable, and that’s what it’s really all about: comfortable living.” Think about the kind of focal point you’re trying to create. How should you orchestrate this space and show off your special pieces in terms of size, scale, color and texture? After a day or two has passed, go back to the box and look for items that define your personality, or will be noticed by guests visiting your home. “Ask yourself: when is enough, enough?” says McCleary. “Each piece of furniture in the room can function to complement. Accessories and works of art should contrast.” When you look at your well-designed room, you should see positive elements, as well as appreciate the possibility for negative space by removing unnecessary pieces that don’t add to the design composition. Interior design students at The Art Institute of York - Pennsylvania are taught to help their clients step back and ask themselves: Is it finished now? You can err when you go shopping and purchase nice pieces for your home, because before long you may have accumulated too many of those nice things. Take a hard look at some of those things you don’t really want or need; it might be time to share that stuff with your local Goodwill. Sometimes, you might think you have to keep memorabilia or outdated gifts from Aunt Ethel in your home all the time. “Not so,” says McCleary. “It’s perfectly acceptable to remove those items when you do your box exercise.” If you get a call from Auntie when she plans her next visit, head to the attic and put those old Beanie Babies she gave you when you were a fanatical collector decades ago on a shelf in your den - temporarily. She’ll be happy for the gesture. When she leaves, feel free to put them back in the box of memories until her next visit. After you complete this exercise in each room in your home, you’ll notice that the clutter has disappeared. Now you can recognize how attractive the remaining items are in that same space. This initiative takes determination and focus, but when you’ve completed the exercise, your focus can be on the lovely space you’ve recreated. • BILL RUANE310-877-2374 [email protected] CALL ME FOR A PRIVATE SHOWING OF ANY OF THESE PROPERTIES FEATURED DUPLEX IN MARINA DEL REY FEATURED HOME IN EL SEGUNDO FEATURED HOME IN WESTCHESTER 723 Loma Vista • $759,000 2bed/1bath. 4,523 sqft lot.

Their first matchup of the year against a non-playoff contender comes on November 28th when they face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves. What happens before then is a mystery. A very ugly, dreadful mystery. So, is it wrong to start at least discussing the option of trading Kobe Bryant? Think about it in these terms. Mr. Bryant wants very badly to achieve what Michael Jordan did. The ever-so-elusive sixth NBA championship ring. There is no way that Kobe gets that sixth ring with the Los Angeles Lakers with only two years remaining on his basketball life clock. A man that is so dedicated to the game of basketball; who bleeds, dreams, sweats basketball on a more competitive level than any player we’ve seen since Jordan, deserves a better send off than this, right? Sure, the guy has experienced the highlights of his career already and has five championship rings as it is, but is it really fair to allow us all to sit back and watch as one of the greatest players to ever play the game struggles through health issues on a team that is almost allergic to winning? Much of this debate depends on whether or not you are a Kobe Bryant fan or an L.A. Laker fan. Naturally, if you’re a Kobe fan you want to see him stay and finish off a 20-year NBA career all in one uniform. If you’re a Laker fan though, it might make sense to trade him away and clear up that $25 million per season off the books, get a package of young players and draft picks, and start building toward the future already. A much brighter, more optimistic future, I might add. Life without Kobe is coming eventually. There will be a time when he is not a Los Angeles Laker anymore and fans of the team are going to have to learn to say goodbye at some point. In this case, the sooner the better. It’s like getting out of relationship that you know won’t work or go the distance. Maybe you’re comfortable with everything as is. But at what point do you start to consider the future and make a decision that is going to make you the most happy right now? Naturally, there are reasons that this just won’t happen. There may never be a player in the league again who will have the opportunity to play every single season of a long and tenuous NBA career with one team. Also, even with as bad as the Lakers have been over the past couple of years, their ticket prices are still the fourthhighest in the NBA this year. Kobe Bryant is the show. He’s what people pay to come and see. Without him, the Lakers would be the Utah Jazz or something of that sort. in alignment with that, television rating would suffer here in Los Angeles with no Kobe Bryant. That wouldn’t be good for business after just recently striking a $4 billion deal with Time Warner Cable. The Lakers have always been fun to watch, even when they weren’t good. Eddie Jones, Nick Van-Exel and Vlade Divac most notably come to mind. With no Kobe, this year would just be plain pathetic for everyone involved. When it comes down to it, moving on past the Lakers is really something that Kobe Bryant will have to decide for himself. The Lakers won’t just outright trade someone like Kobe, he will have to ask, beg and plead for it to happen. Just recently, Bryant told the media that he has no interest in going anywhere. Knowing his competitive edge, he is probably telling the truth. Kobe would obviously love to end his career alongside the very few likes of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Tim Duncan who will all have spent the entirety of their careers with just one team. If that’s something that Kobe wants though, he had better be prepared for some of the ugliest years of his career to come. But hey, at least he’s still got records to break. • Eagles from page 8 them,” Nootbaar said with emotion. The Eagles host Rio Mesa Friday night in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Western Division playoffs. The Spartans (5-5) are an at-large team from the Pacific View League and are led by senior quarterback Cameron Wrout. Wrout has passed for nearly 2000 yards and has thrown 17 TD passes. Should the Eagles prevail they would host Simi Valley in the second round if the Pioneers defeat North Torrance otherwise the Eagles would be on the road to face the Saxons. CIF Playoffs The El Segundo boys’ water polo team ran the table and won the Ocean League. The third seeded Eagles opened the CIF Southern Section Division IV playoffs at home (Mira Costa) against the winner of the Brentwood/ Atascadero game today at 3pm. The winner advances to play the winner of the Glendale/ Sonora match on Saturday at a site TBA. The girls’ volleyball team advanced to the CIF-SS 3AA playoffs and traveled to La Mirada this past Tuesday. Should they win they would most likely host J.W. North (Riverside) tonight. The boys’ cross country team won the Ocean League eking out a three point victory over Santa Monica. Gavin Glynn ran an inspired race finishing second while Nolan Sharp (6), Nick Ostler (7), Scott Willis (9), Evan O’Connor , Oliver Chen (20) and Daniel Gutierrez (21) will all qualify for the CIF prelims Saturday at Mt SAC. • Nolan Sharp finished strong at the Ocean League X-Country finals.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

As a Junior Ambassador for Operation Gratitude this year Bellsy founded Support Our Troops, and has recruited members for the club. She is pleased to report the response has been very encouraging. One of the essential requirements to earning a Gold Award in the Girl Scouts is that the stated goal, regardless of how impressive it may be, will only qualify if is sustainable beyond a one-time event. In Bellsy’s case this means that in order for her actually earn the award, she will not only have engage and oversee the letter writing and donation drives, but will have to clearly demonstrate to Girls Scouts’ officials that Support Our Troops will remain viable after she has moved on from ESHS. To this end, Bellsy is working to ensure the selection of capable, committed officers, who will approach the cause with her same level of zeal once she has graduated. If you would like to join the club they meet Wednesdays in B203, and/or if you would like to contribute letters or items for the care packages please drop supplies to Support Our Troops at ESHS Wednesdays in B203. Boxes for donations will soon go into the classrooms for the first drive of year just after the Thanksgiving holiday, but at any time please send in donations to room B203. Bellsy tells me that the items most appreciated are “Items socks, lip balm, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hand and foot warmers, energy bars, beef jerky, trail mix, hard candies, and wipes.” In addition, it is always easy to write letters; it is a wonderful family activity that we do in our home where we spend a family hour writing letters to the troops. Perhaps over our Thanksgiving holiday spend some time giving thanks by writing letters that can be included in the ESHS care packages. Bellsy tells me that “letters should be put in envelopes unsealed. In the letters you can start out with “Dear hero” or “Dear service member” and talk about current events back here i.e. sports, weather, music, and movies. You can talk a little about yourself, what you like to do. Try to avoid talking about politics or religion, but you can of course say something like “you’re in my prayers.” It is also nice to include your thankfulness for their service.” All donations and letters would be greatly appreciated as El Segundo comes together to show gratitude for those serving to protect our freedom. I am going to to pledge to write 25 letters over the Thanksgiving holiday- would anyone like to join me?

The Herald, which went online five years ago, also provided PDFs of all papers from 2009 to 2013. “The collection is historically significant not only for research purposes, but also because it is the only source for El Segundo Herald images that date back to the early days of the city—many of the older Herald newspapers cannot be located anywhere outside of the El Segundo Library,” explained Herbert. Indeed the Herald offices house precious few copies of the old editions in the wake of multiple relocations and ownership changes since the paper’s inception. Sadly, the earliest editions no longer exist in any form. A fire destroyed all copies prior to 1916, while four other complete individual years from various decades are also missing.

They had visited San Francisco, then swung out to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Next stop? Studio Antiques. Anna and Tom were very excited to see the Martins and many photos were taken on everyone’s phones. The Martins were as friendly as could be. Tom and Laurence discussed lutefisk, their common knowledge of German, and whether Baggage Battles was dubbed or subtitled in Norway (turns out it’s subtitled). Sally and Anna hugged one another. “It’s so nice,” said Sally, to see these friendly faces and hear their stories. Some fans bring the Martins gifts or mementos, and the Martins treat them with kindness and show them around the shop. “They go to Disneyland,” said Laurence, “and then they come here.” It’s quite an accomplishment, to be recognizably famous but also accessible enough that the fans feel comfortable showing up at Studio Antiques just to say hello. The store has something for everyone: it’s crammed from floor to ceiling with items of all kinds and shapes, from records to light fixtures to casseroles to jewelry. Next door is the “World Gallery,” where Laurence showcases larger items he’s found overseas. The Martins have many avenues for sale, thanks to the internet: besides the brick-and-mortar store, they have a website with a catalog and an enormous eBay store. They do free appraisals and will sell merchandise for clients on eBay as well. They pride themselves on their honesty, and disdain stores that try to cheat the customer by offering a false price or not doing their homework. “The thing that we bring to the table that no one else does is the research,” said Sally. The Martins can call on a vast network of experts to appraise any item, and they love to ferret out origins, maker’s marks, and whatever else can fetch the best price possible. Not everything is worth a mint, of course, but the Martins will go the extra mile to make sure. Their eBay sales make up 80% of the store’s business, so the Martins are constantly on the lookout for clients who may have a treasure on hand and need an expert eye. They also will appraise estate items and run estate sales. Each revenue stream contributes to the overall business model, which is to take in items, but also to get them out the door in a fair manner. Small business owners have to worry about everything, from travel to eBay re-listings to the parking outside, and just last week, the city created new diagonal parking that goes Certified and KEEP IT LOCAL NEW LOWER RATES! 26 weeks (6 months) is only $400 52 weeks (1 year) is only $750 KEEP IT LOCAL NEW RATES!

Customers can come preview the items beforehand (in fact, it’s essential to do so), and then can come prepared to bid on whatever strikes their fancy. The Martins are looking for clients with items to sell on consignment that then can be sold at auction. So if you have things around that need a new home, and you think they could be valuable, consider an auction. If nothing else, you can drop by the store to find out what kind of fun Laurence and Sally are having. You might meet someone from Norway or Singapore, who’s just there for the day. And you will probably come away with something too. That’s just the way things are. • Sport Shorts periods was El Segundo 8, Santa Monica 2.

The spaces are narrow and a little hard to park in, especially coming from Grand (says this reporter from experience). Sally, though she is reserving judgment until the spaces have been here a few more weeks, was worried that people might drive on by if they can’t figure out how to get into one of the spaces. Each person who parks might come away with something from Studio Antiques, and each person who drives on by is a loss. As we spoke about parking, a woman came out of the depths of the store with a flat, iron-grate looking thing. She wanted to buy it to put a plant on; Sally told her it was a boot-scraper. The lady bought it anyway, and now it has a second life.

EL SEGUNDO HERALD November 13, 2014 Page 15 Pets Without Partners Purrrfect Companions Rumba is an apricot Poodle who loves her walks and cuddles. Troy and his brother Tyrese love to snuggle with friends. Tyrese loves his brother Troy and any other company. Add a little love when you adopt your purrfect partner. During the month of November, the adoption fee for tuxedo cats and black cats is only $60! Troy, Tyrese and Little Ricky are three adorable high energy little boys who love to romp around together and with their fellow foster kittens. Troy and Tyrese have striking coats of ebony with adorable soft green eyes. They love to sleep on the bed as well as snuggle on your lap or in your arms. If they aren’t busy making biscuits on you, these beautiful little brothers will follow you from room to room just to be near you. Both Troy and Tyrese get along with the small dogs in their foster home and enjoy chattering away to anyone and everyone nearby. They would be very lonely by themselves, so they cannot be only kitties. Although Troy and Tyrese would adore being adopted together, they can be adopted separately into a home with another feline friend or with one of their other kitten buddies. Little Ricky has a very loving personality. He is extremely playful, sweet, loves to cuddle, and enjoys being held. Petting him while looking at your smart phone doesn’t count and he’ll push the phone out of your hand so you’ll give him your undivided attention. Ricky will run to the door to greet you, and he’ll follow you around the house. With the amount of energy Little Ricky has, he would do well in a home looking for a cat that has dog-like personalities who will run and play with him. His favorite toys are strings, balls or crumpled up paper, and feathers. Little Ricky has been fostered in a home with two calm and well-behaved dogs. He loves following them around swatting at their wagging tails. Little Ricky is your “personality plus” kitten. These kittens are available for adoption through Kitten Rescue, one of the largest cat rescue groups in Southern California. All of our kitties are spayed/neutered, microchipped, tested for FeLV and FIV, dewormed and current on their vaccinations. For additional information and to see these or our other kitties, please check our website www.kittenrescue. org or email us at [email protected] Your tax deductible donations for the rescue and care of our cats and kittens can be made through our website or by sending a check payable to Kitten Rescue, 914 Westwood Blvd. #583, Los Angeles, CA 90024. On Saturdays, we have adoptions from noon to 3:30 p.m. in Westchester at 8655 Lincoln Blvd. just south of Manchester Ave. and also in Mar Vista at 3860 Centinela Ave, just south of Venice Boulevard. Our website lists additional adoption sites and directions to each location. Little Ricky loves to play! He really really loves it. Gummi Bear is as sweet as his name. His only challenge was being born without teeth, hence the name Gummi Bear. His new family looked right past that to see his inner sweetness shining thru and they are loving life together. “Everything is going great with Gummi Bear. Yes, we’re keeping his name - it’s too cute to change. He has had a few accidents but nothing we can’t figure out. He’s getting tons of love and exercise. He’s been to the dog park, dog beach, and every night at 5 our community has a meet up dog area. He loves it and he’s not afraid of any size dog. He thinks everyone is his best pal. So funny! The kids are so loving their new little man. They wear each other out. It’s been great! He’s a perfect fit to our family. We can’t believe we got so lucky in finding him. Thank you for all your help. We will touch base with you if we have any more questions. Thanks again from all of us! -- Terri, John, Johnny, Lexi, and Gummi Bear.” When you adopt a “pet without a partner,” you will forever make a difference in their life and they are sure to make a difference in yours. • Adopt a “pet without a partner” and give a homeless pet a second chance in life. Rumba is a darling apricot Poodle mix who is under a year old. She is very sweet, loves to sit on your lap and slept on the bed of the man who rescued her and had no accidents. Rumba is a good natured little girl, loves to play, is great on walks and loves people. She is a pretty dreamy little pup. Rumba is current on vaccinations, microchipped, fine with other dogs, and would be best with children over 6 years old. Mama Cass is a really nice little girl and a good mom to her puppies, Dharma and Sticks. She is sweet, friendly, gives lots of kisses and has a very bright sparkling personality. It’s hard not to fall in love with her the instant you meet her. We can’t say enough good things about this little girl and her lovely demeanor and personality. She is completely housebroken and is good with other little dogs as well. At only 5 pounds, Mama Cass would be best with children over 6 due to her small size. Mama Cass will be spayed, is current on vaccinations, and microchipped. Darling Dharma and her sweet brother be 4 - 5 months old. Hula has a beautiful golden coat with a white blaze on her chest and two white socks on her front feet. Her tail wags so much it makes her body wiggle back and forth just like a little Hula dancer. Hula is very playful, is good with all the other doggies here at the rescue and has lots of puppy energy. She is very lovable, a quick learner and will be a great addition to any home. Hula will be spayed soon, is current on vaccinations, and microchipped. To learn more about these and other wonderful dogs, visit our website at www. animalsrule.org. If a dog is on our website, it’s available. Come to our Saturday adoption events from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at 305 North Harbor Blvd., San Pedro (just off the 110 near the cruise port). We are always in need of donations for veterinarian bills and our senior dogs. Donations can be made through our website or by sending a check payable to: Animals Rule Placement Foundation at 305 North Harbor Blvd., San Pedro, CA 90731. All donations are tax-deductible; we are a registered 501©3 non-profit organization. Mama Cass has a sweet and friendly personality. Hula is a golden, mix-breed pup who gets along with other dogs. Dharma is an adorable Chihuahua pup. Sticks were born on August 21, 2014. Their mom Mama Cass is a gem and they are the best little puppies ever. Chihuahuas are a dime a dozen these days in the shelter, but none are sweeter than these little puppies. They have been raised with a lot of tender loving care from the day they were born. Both pups can be seen by appointment only with an approved application. They are ready to go home, but will need to remain in our relative area of the South Bay or North Orange County due to our spay/neuter ordinance. (They may be adopted separately.) Both puppies will be spayed/neutered when of age, are current on vaccinations, dewormed, and will be microchipped. Hula is an adorable mix breed pup . . . possibly a Whippet or an Italian Greyhound mix. She is very sweet and is estimated to Be kind. Save a life. Support animal rescue. Happy Tails Pets can get loose or lost through mishaps and travel quickly. Microchip: it works! Gummi Bear and his brand new family.
