BREAKING NEWS

Norwalk~Just like four years ago when John Johnson won a seat on the NLMUSD Board, simply because he put the word "teacher" under his profession, we may have a new school board member replacing Johnson, under the same circumstances.

Margarita Rios, unknown in the community, may win a seat on the board, simply because she used the words "police officer" under her profession. The fact of the matter is, she is a "police officer" for the dysfunctional Los Angeles Unified School District. A big difference, than being a real police officer.

I'm not saying she's not a great person or unqualified-I'm just saying, you now what I mean.

As usual, the few that do vote, are uninformed,and vote for "their own kind". People get giggly when they see the words "teacher" or "police officer"-both tax-payer funded jobs. Their judgement suddenly becomes clouded, and common-sense thinking takes a back seat..

Welcome to the world of American politics.

Norwalk~With surprise winner from four yours ago John Johnson deciding not to run again, this ensures the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District Board of Education will have at least one new member.

But does anyone really care? Traditional voter turnout seems to indicate no, but what's more important than our schools? Is it the nine percent of people that vote, who do all the moaning and groaning between elections; saying we have a lethargic school system?

Actually, it is almost a lame duck position. What can one person do to make a difference in a entrenched machine? Name one achievement by any individual school board member over the last ten years. What has Karen Morrison, Lorraine Neal, Pauline Deal, or Ed Hengler done individually, that stands out, over this last two years? Everything is collaborative.

La Mirada~An elderly woman slammed her Toyota sedan into Cabo Taco earlier today around 1:00 p.m.

The restaurant, located in the La Mirada Theatre Center, is now closed and is expected to reopen next week.

The driver. who witnesses say looked around 80 years old, was very shaken and had little to say, if anything.

Owner Kenny Yowell said, " I saw her coming and thought she was going to stop, but she didn't. A customer who was dining was able to just twist out of the way of the car. And he ended up pinned between a wall, the table, and the car."

Waitress Sandra Zavala had just finished serving a table that was taken out and was walking away, "It's a miracle nobody was killed. The large table saved the mans life."

The vehicle entered the restaurant smashing through booths and tables and sideswiping patrons, creating a chaotic scene.

Four patrons were taken to the hospital complaining of back, rib, shoulder injuries, but none seem to be life threatening. The unidentified elderly woman and her passenger were also taken to the hospital.

It is unclear at this time what caused the driver to enter the restaurant, but age does seem to be a factor.

Q: Do I need a house inspection when my bank is having the house appraised?

A: Yes! A house appraisal is an independent evaluation of the current market value of a house or property.  In general, the purpose of an appraisal is to set the current value of a house so that a lender may determine how much it can loan to the buyer. The appraiser looks at similar properties in the area and the prices at which they were sold to set the value of the house.

A house inspector conducts a thorough evaluation of the houses major systems and structural integrity. Whereas the appraiser is typically working for the bank, the house inspector is working for you. The house inspector identifies items that need replacement or repair prior to closing, which can save you thousands of dollars.

U.S. Department Of Housing And Urban Development (HUD) requires buyers sign a Consumer Notice advising them to get a house inspection in addition to a house appraisal before purchasing a house with a FHA mortgage. Additionally, HUD now allows homebuyers to include the costs of appraisal and inspection in their FHA mortgage.
