La Mirada~On Thursday, March 15th, City of La Mirada Public Safety officer Mary Cipres and the principal of Foster Road Elementary, Sal Villagomez, hosted a Neighborhood Watch meeting to give the community a chance to express some of their concerns.

Around 30 members of the community gathered at Foster Road Elementary to ask questions directly to the deputies that are assigned to the La Mirada area. The deputies were happy to answer any questions and shared a few positive updates.

Recently there have been a few troubling incidents in the area and the officers confirmed they have discovered the cause of the issues and have a firm handle on it. They reiterated that gang activity will not be tolerated and they are taking action to suppress it.

Cipres and the officers encourage the members of the community to call the La Mirada Sheriff's station at (562) 902-2960 if they witness anything suspicious, no matter how big or small.

She also shared a few other ways to stay informed and involved in the community. E-Watch is a weekly email that is sent out to provide updates about criminal activity in the city. You can access it on the city's website under "Reference Links".

In addition, you can download the app My La Mirada which is an easy way to bring attention to things that need to be addressed, such as broken city equipment, tagging, etc. You simply take a photo of what you are observing and send it through the app. You can also follow La Mirada Public Safety on Facebook (@LaMiradaPublicSafety) and on Twitter (@LaMiradaPS) to stay connected.

Additional meetings were hosted at Gardenhill Elementary on March 22nd and at a home in the Foster Park area on March 23rd.

Godfather of La Mirada Football Passes

Longtime active community member, the man who many consider the Godfather of La Mirada Football, has died.

Don Gauthier passed away early Monday morning after suffering a stroke sources tell us.

He was the President of La Mirada Pop Warner Football for over 25 years and was also the La Mirada High School Freshman Football head coach for over 35 years, coming over from Neff High in the mid 70’s.

In the early 90’s, Gauthier’s freshmen teams went undefeated for a span of ten years.

Longtime assistant Kenny Meyer said the kids loved him, “He was an old fashioned, no-nonsense coach.”

Gauthier was also very active in La Mirada Little League and was a well-respected, dedicated La Mirada man.

TICKER: Ryan Vargas, 17, of La Mirada has temporarily moved to North Carolina after he signed a deal with Rev Racing. He will compete in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. The La Mirada High junior plans on finishing schooling online to devote more time to furthering his career. Go get ém Ryan!

Recently, Judge Rafael Ongkeko ruled in favor of La Mirada Lamplighter Publisher Brian Hews in a defamation case filed by Central Basin Director Leticia Vazquez by dismissing the case and ordering Vasquez to pay attorney’s fees. At last report, Vasquez planned on filing an appeal.

Beginning this fall (2018-19 school year), Artesia, Cerritos and John Glenn High Schools will leave the Suburban League in athletics competition in major sports and will  join Oxford Academy, Pioneer and Whitney to form the new 605 League. At this time, that will leave just four teams in the Suburban League-Norwalk, Mayfair, Bellflower and La Mirada.

La Mirada~Many of you may have heard the news announced this past October;  Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is moving to a Family Scouting Program allowing girls to now become Cub Scouts.

Although this topic may still be considered a “hot button,” Cub Scout Pack 815 of La Mirada has stayed informed. Together, its leaders have made the decision to move to a Family Scouting Program as of January 1st, 2018.

“Family units are not the same as they were fifty or even twenty years ago,” Cubmaster Sandra Green shared. “When my oldest son started Cub Scouts about seven years ago, I noticed many of the leaders were women. His den leader was a busy working mom, the committee chair was a full time working mom and so many of the key roles to keep the pack going were filled by women.”

She continued, “Years ago, Cub Scouts was geared more towards a father-son program but now, it’s the norm to have moms, aunts, and grandmothers leading dens and packs.”
