DRASTIC REDUCTIONS IN WATER
CONSUMPTION IMPOSED BY THE STATE
With California facing one of the most severe droughts on record, on
April 1, 2015, Governor Jerry Brown issued an Executive Order that mandates
all cities, including Lynwood, and private water purveyors to reduce water
consumption by their customers by 25 percent. If successful, this savings
amounts to approximately 1.5 million acre-feet of water over the next nine
months. For comparison, Big Bear Lake holds 73,000 acre-feet of water.
After the directive from the Governor, the Lynwood City Council took
action on April 21, 2015 and declared a Level 2 Water Supply Shortage condition
in the City. Under the Lynwood Municipal Code following the declaration of such
a condition mandates conservation measures and enforcement provisions to
ensure that target reduction levels are attained. Lynwood water consumption
must meet a conservation target of 15 percent and implementation measures
to attain such a reduction will begin immediately.
Effective immediately, residents and business owners in the City will
be required to comply with the following regulations to help conserve water:

HONOR
APRIL KID MAYOR
IS FOCUSED
Will Rogers Elementary School 6th grader
Yasmine Sterling did something in April that she never
thought she would do, at least not as a kid. Sterling, who
is 12 years old, served as the City of Lynwood’s April 2015
Kid Mayor and on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, she conducted
the City Council Meeting like a pro.
Sterling said that she had heard about the
City’s Kid Mayor Program but didn’t think she would
ever be selected by her teachers. “I can’t believe I was chosen,” Sterling told the Council.
“Everybody at my school thinks it’s the coolest thing that I’m the Kid Mayor. I never
thought that I would like to be in politics. At the beginning of the City Council Meeting I
was really nervous, but after a few minutes, it felt natural for me to be sitting with all of
the elected officials. I felt like I could do anything after that.”
From calling the April 21st meeting to order, participating in the Council
Member’s roll call, introducing the Sheriff’s Department’s Color Guard presentation,
kicking off the Pledge of Allegiance and the invocation, Sterling remained focused.
Spearheaded by the Lynwood Mayor with full support from his Council colleagues, the
2015 Kid Mayor Program gives 12 star Lynwood Unified School District students the
opportunity to serve as the Junior Mayor of the City for an entire month. Sterling is the
fourth student Kid Mayor selected for 2015.
Sterling was presented with a proclamation, name plaque, badge and a $400
Scholarship. “Each Kid Mayor is getting a check for $400 in his or her name because
we have faith in them that one day they will go to college,” said the Mayor about the
scholarship. “We hope that this is just the beginning for them.”

Ante una de las sequías más graves registradas con la que se enfrenta
California, el 1 de abril de 2015, el gobernador Jerry Brown emitió un decreto
que ordena a todas las ciudades, incluida Lynwood, y proveedores de agua
privados a reducir el consumo de agua de sus clientes en un 25 por ciento. Si
se tiene éxito, estos ahorros ascenderán a aproximadamente 1.5 millones de
acre-pies de agua en los próximos nueve meses. Para comparar, el lago Big
Bear contiene 73,000 acre-pies de agua.
Después de la directiva del Gobernador, el Municipio de la Ciudad de
Lynwood tomo medidas el 21 de abril de 2015 y declaró el estado de Escasez
en el Suministro de Agua Nivel 2 en la Ciudad. Conforme al Código Municipal
de Lynwood, luego de la declaración de dicho estado se requiere tomar
medidas de conservación y disposiciones de cumplimiento para garantizar que
se alcancen los niveles de reducción objetivo. El consumo de agua de Lynwood
debe cumplir un objetivo de conservación del 15 por ciento y se implementarán
de inmediato las medidas necesarias para alcanzar dicha reducción.
Con efecto inmediato, los habitantes y dueños de negocios en la
Ciudad deberán cumplir con las siguientes normas para contribuir con la
conservación del agua:
•
•
Regar el césped con agua potable está prohibido entre las 9 a.m. y las 6 p.m.
salvo que se utilice un balde de mano o una manguera de mano equipada con una
boquilla con cierre automático, o se realice por períodos de tiempo muy breves;
Regar con agua potable durante más de 15 minutos por día está prohibido; Regar
de una manera que cause o permita un flujo o escorrentía de agua excesivos
hacia las aceras, caminos de acceso, calles, callejones, alcantarillas o zanjas
está prohibido; Lavar superficies pavimentadas o asfaltadas está prohibido
excepto cuando sea necesario para mitigar peligros de seguridad o sanitarios;
Las fuentes de agua y otras instalaciones decorativas que utilizan agua deben
operar con agua recirculada; Lavar los vehículos sin usar un balde o manguera
de mano con una boquilla con cierre está prohibido; y se prohíbe la instalación
de sistemas de refrigeración de paso único en los edificios que solicitan un nuevo
servicio de agua.
Los establecimientos de alojamiento comercial deben brindar la opción de no
lavar la ropa blanca todos los días. Los establecimientos de comidas y bebidas
deben servir agua únicamente a pedido. Se prohibirá la instalación de sistemas
de agua sin recirculación en los lavaderos de autos. Los negocios y los residentes
deberán arreglar las filtraciones, roturas o fallas de la cañería dentro de un plazo
de 48 horas.
El Municipio de la Ciudad de Lynwood también votó para reducir
los días de riego a dos días por semana. Se les notificará a los residentes
sobre los días. Durante los meses de noviembre hasta marzo, el riego estará
limitado a no más de un día a la semana. Habrá límites para llenar los lagos y
estanques decorativos y las piscinas y spas residenciales. Puede encontrar más
información sobre la conservación del agua en www.saveourwater.com.
Yasmine Sterling, alumna de 6to grado de Will Rogers Elementary School, hizo algo
en abril que nunca pensó que haría, al menos no de niña. Sterling, que tiene 12 años,
actuó como Alcaldesa Niña de la Ciudad de Lynwood en abril de 2015 y el martes 21
de abril de 2015 dirigió la Asamblea del Municipio como una profesional.
Sterling comentó que había escuchado sobre el Programa de Alcalde Niño
de la Ciudad pero que nunca pensó que iba ser elegida por sus maestros. “No puedo
creer que me eligieran”, Sterling le dijo al Municipio. “Todos en mi escuela piensan
que es la cosa más genial que yo sea Alcaldesa Niña. Nunca pensé que me gustaría
estar en la política. Al principio de la Asamblea del Municipio estaba muy nerviosa,
pero después de unos minutos, se sintió natural estar sentada junto a todos los
funcionarios electos. Sentí que podía hacer cualquier cosa después de eso.”
Sterling permaneció concentrada desde que se realizó la apertura de la
asamblea del 21 de abril, participando del llamado de lista de los Miembros del
Municipio, la presentación de la Guardia de Color del Departamento del Sheriff,
hasta el inicio al Himno de la Bandera y la invocación. Liderado por el Alcalde de
Lynwood con el apoyo total de sus colegas en el Municipio, el Programa de Alcalde
Niño de la Ciudad de Lynwood 2015 brinda a 12 estudiantes estrella del Distrito
Escolar Unificado de Lynwood la oportunidad de actuar como Alcaldes Junior de
la Ciudad por un mes completo. Sterling es la cuarta estudiante seleccionada para
Alcalde Niño en el 2015.
Sterling recibió una proclamación, una placa con su nombre, una
credencial y una Beca de $400. “Cada Alcalde Niño recibe un cheque por $400 en su
nombre porque tenemos fe en que algún día irán a la universidad”, declaró el Alcalde
sobre la beca. “Esperamos que este sea tan solo el comienzo para ellos.”

biggest prize pool ever,” said Mark Flores, director of the City’s
Recreation and Community Services Department. “Not only has
our Weight Loss Challenge been a great way for the community
to get healthy, but it’s also been a great community builder as
friends, family and neighbors compete against each other in a
fun and supportive environment. The $30,000+ in cash prizes
that have been paid out since 2009 is not bad either!”
MOSQUITOS INVASORES EN EL CONDADO DE
LOS ÁNGELES
Unlike the mosquitoes that we are familiar with in
Southern California, the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control
District has detected three new black-and-white mosquitoes no
bigger than your fingernail that pose a serious threat to our
communities.
The three invasive species are the Asian tiger mosquito,
the yellow fever mosquito and the Australian backyard mosquito.
These mosquitoes adapt very well to urban environments. Once
introduced, they can thrive in our neighborhoods. While the
Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District is working hard
to fight these invasive insects, it is seeking residents’ help.
With a busy mosquito season ahead, Vector Control aims to remind
Southern California residents of the dangers that mosquitoes and
other vectors pose to the health of our communities. In addition to
the West Nile Virus, they have the potential to transmit debilitating
diseases such as dengue and yellow fever. This invasive species
can bite during the day, lay eggs in small containers of water and
thrive indoors.
With the unusually warm weather and drought
conditions, the Mosquito and Vector Control Association
anticipates a large number of mosquito transmitted diseases in
2015. They ask residents to immediately report black-and-white
daytime biting mosquitoes.
A diferencia de los mosquitos con los que estamos
familiarizados en el sur de California, el Distrito de Control de Vectores
del Condado del Gran Los Ángeles ha detectado tres nuevas especies de
mosquitos blanco y negro, no más grandes que las uñas de los dedos,
que representan una grave amenaza para nuestras comunidades.
Las tres especies invasoras son el mosquito tigre asiático,
el mosquito de la fiebre amarilla y el mosquito de jardín australiano.
Estos mosquitos se adaptan muy bien a los ambientes urbanos. Una vez
introducidos, pueden desarrollarse en nuestros vecindarios. Aunque el
Distrito de Control de Vectores del Condado del Gran Los Ángeles trabaja
duro para combatir estos insectos invasores, necesita de la ayuda de los
habitantes.
Con una atareada temporada de mosquitos por delante, el
Control de Vectores busca recordarles a los habitantes del sur de California
sobre los peligros que los mosquitos y otros vectores representan para
la salud de nuestras comunidades. Además del Virus del Nilo Occidental,
pueden transmitir enfermedades debilitantes como el dengue y la fiebre
amarilla. Estas especies invasoras pueden picar durante el día, colocar
huevos en pequeños contenedores de agua y crecer en interiores.
Con las inusuales condiciones de clima cálido y sequía, la
Asociación de Control de Vectores y Mosquitos anticipa un gran número
de enfermedades transmitidas por los mosquitos en 2015. Solicitan a
los habitantes que informen de inmediato la presencia de mosquitos
blanco y negro que pican de día.
To report a sighting of either of these invasive mosquitoes, call
(562) 944-9656 or visit www.ReportMosquitoes.org. For more
information, visit www.glacvcd.org.
Para informar la presencia de cualquiera de estos mosquitos invasores,

THE WAR ON GRAFFITI
LA GUERRA CONTRA LOS GRAFITIS
There are different times of the year when graffiti and
vandalism rise. While the City of Lynwood deals with its share of
graffiti and vandalism all year long, so much as to reinstate its graffiti
abatement division, there’s a time of the year when graffiti and
vandalism skyrocket and it’s not something that City officials, business
owners, homeowners, the school district and law enforcement are
looking forward to. It’s called the end of the school year, or as some may
call it, summer.

Microchipping your pet provides an extra level of
protection in case your pet loses his collar and tags. Providing
your cat or dog with both tags and a microchip can help ensure a
happy reunion if the unthinkable happens and your companion
gets lost.
The pet population in the City of Lynwood gets bigger
every year. The City’s new Animal Control Division encourages
pet owners to spay and neuter their pets as soon as possible.
Kennels in animal shelters are overcrowded with pets that
people no longer want or can keep.
La Sociedad de Vacunación Veterinaria de California y la División
de Control Animal de la Ciudad de Lynwood convocan a todos
los dueños de mascotas que asistan a la Clínica de Vacunación y
Colocación de Microchips de Bajo Costo el 20 de mayo de 2015
de 6 a 8 p.m. en el Centro Comunitario de Lynwood, 11301 Bullis
Road, en Lynwood.
La Clínica atenderá según el orden de llegada.
Los dueños de mascotas deben ser mayores de 18 años para
participar y todas las mascotas deben estar con correas o en
bolso para el transportación de perro para ser atendidos. Solo los
animales saludables y que no estén preñados serán vacunados.
Se recomienda a los dueños de mascotas que lleven la chapa
de licencia de su mascota, una notificación de renovación de
licencia o certificados de vacunaciones previas contra la rabia
para recibir una vacuna antirrábica por 3 años; de lo contrario, la
vacuna solo servirá por un año. Todos los servicios veterinarios
pueden abonarse en efectivo o con tarjeta de crédito.
“Las vacunaciones son una parte importante de
la rutina del cuidado de la salud de su perro o gato,” dijo J.D.
Whitaker, el Gerente de la División de Control Animal y Normas
de Estacionamiento de la Ciudad. “Al vacunar a su mascota,
usted ayuda a proteger al amigo de su familia de varias
enfermedades, como la rabia, moquillo, parvovirus, hepatitis
infecciosa, bordetella, leucemia felina y otras”, comentó.
“Las mascotas, como las personas, también requieren una
visita anual al veterinario, lo cual, junto con cumplir con las
vacunaciones de su mascota oportunamente, contribuirá a que
su querido compañero esté saludable y seguro.”
Colocarle un microchip a su mascota brinda un nivel
adicional de protección en caso de que pierda su collar y chapa
de identificación. Colocarle a su gato o perro tanto una chapa
de identificación como un microchip puede ayudar a garantizar
un reencuentro feliz en caso de que suceda lo impensable y su
compañero se pierda.
La población de mascotas en la Ciudad de Lynwood
crece cada año. La nueva División de Control de Animales de
la Ciudad incentiva a los dueños de mascotas a que esterilicen
y castren a sus mascotas lo antes posible. Las perreras en los
refugios de animales están repletas de mascotas que la gente
ya no quiere o no puede tener.

Hay diferentes épocas del año en las que aumentan los
grafitis y el vandalismo. Aunque la Ciudad de Lynwood se ocupa del
problema de los grafitis y el vandalismo todo el año, tanto como para
restablecer su división de eliminación de grafitis, hay una época del
año en la que los grafitis y el vandalismo se disparan y no es algo
que los funcionarios, los propietarios de negocios, los propietarios
de viviendas, el distrito escolar y las fuerzas policiales de la Ciudad
esperen con ansias. Se llama fin del año escolar, o como algunos lo
llaman, verano.
Nadie culpa a la juventud por todos los grafitis, vandalismo o
“tagging”, pero es un hecho que los anteriores se incrementan durante
los meses de verano cuando los niños están fuera de la escuela
con mucho tiempo libre y andan por la calle con poca supervisión
de sus padres, que se encuentran trabajando. Según el Tte. Todd
Deeds del Departamento del Sheriff Century Station en el Condado
de Los Ángeles, los grafitis, el vandalismo y el “tagging” presentan
un enorme incremento en los meses de verano y provocan que los
oficiales del Sheriff estén más activos para identificar a los individuos
responsables de los grafitis y el vandalismo.
Es importante que los padres sepan que conforme al Código
Municipal de Lynwood y al Código Civil de California, cuando un menor
realiza un grafiti, los padres o tutores legales de dicho menor serán
solidariamente responsables por los daños causados por el menor. Si
hay pruebas de que su hijo es culpable de dañar negocios y viviendas
con cualquier tipo de parafernalia de grafiti, entonces usted como
padre o tutor legal será considerado responsable económicamente.
El Tte. Deeds les aconseja a los padres que controlen la habitación
de sus hijos, sus mochilas y sus bolsillos. Se les aconseja a los padres
que sepan dónde se encuentran sus hijos, con quién se juntan y
por supuesto, qué hacen. Los grafitis, el vandalismo y el “tagging”
pueden parecer infracciones inofensivas para algunos padres, pero
les recordamos que, si nadie interviene, sus acciones podrían provocar
violencia en otras personas que también están dejando su firma
y colocando sus apodos allí afuera, y eso es algo que seguramente
quieren prevenir”, declaró el Tte. Deeds.

HISTORY
IMPORTANT NUNMBERS
CINCO DE MAYO
C
inco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory
over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican
War (1861-1867). Although it is a relatively minor holiday in
Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into
a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas
with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo traditions
include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in
cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.
In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is widely interpreted as
a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas
with substantial Mexican-American populations. Chicano activists
raised awareness of the holiday in the 1960s, in part because they
identified with the victory of indigenous Mexicans over European
invaders during the Battle of Puebla. Today, revelers mark the
occasion with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing
and traditional foods such as tacos and mole poblano. Some of the
largest festivals are held in Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston.
Many people outside of Mexico mistakenly believe that
Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican independence, which
was declared more than 50 years before the Battle of Puebla. That
event is commemorated on September 16, the anniversary of the
revolutionary priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla’s famous “Grito
de Dolores” (“Cry of Dolores”), a call to arms that amounted to a
declaration of war against the Spanish colonial government in 1810.
E
l Cinco de Mayo conmemora la victoria del ejército mexicano
sobre Francia en la Batalla de Puebla en 1862 durante la
guerra Franco-Mexicana (1861-1867). A pesar es una fiesta
relativmente menor en México, en los Estrados Unidos el Cinco
de Mayo se ha convertido en una celebración de la cultura y el
patrimonio de México, sobre todo en áreas con grandes populación
estadounidenseses de origen mexicano. Las tradiciones del Cinco de
Mayo incluyen desfiles, música de mariachis y festivales callejeros
en ciudades y pueblos en Mexico y los Estados Unidos.
En los Estados Unidos, Cinco de Mayo se interpreta
mayoritariamente como una celebración de la cultura y la herencia
mexicana, particularmente en áreas con grandes poblaciones
mexicoamericanas. Los activistas chicanos dieron a conocer este
feriado en los años sesenta, en parte porque se identificaban con
la victoria de los indígenas mexicanos sobre los invasores europeos
durante la Batalla de Puebla. Hoy en día, los que festejan marcan
la ocasión con desfiles, fiestas, música mariachi, danzas folclóricas
mexicanas y comidas tradicionales tales como taco y mole poblano.
Algunos de los festivales más grandes se celebran en Los Angeles,
Chicago y Houston.
Muchas personas fuera de México creen erróneamente que
el Cinco de Mayo es la celebración de la independencia mexicana,
que se celebró más de cincuenta años antes de la Batalla de Puebla.
El evento se conmemora el 16 de septiembre, el aniversario del
cura revolucionario Martín Hidalgo y Costilla, el famoso “Grito de
Dolores”, un llamado a las armas que equivalió a una declaración de
guerra contra el gobierno colonial español en 1810.
