LOOKING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation. AARBF is a
non-profit 501c Public Charity dedicated to survivor
assistance and burn prevention.
The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation's Champ Camp is
celebrating it's 23rd year. As a week long residential
summer camp for children burn survivors Champ Camp
provides a supportive atmosphere in which these children
can feel at ease and have fun! We hope to provide camp,
which is free to families of these children, to 187
campers in June 2008!!
Champ Camp's supportive environment helps soothe the
devastating emotional and physical pain a burn injury
often causes. It encourages children ages 5-16 to accept
themselves and to JUST HAVE FUN!
Champ Camp takes place in June and is located 30 miles
east of Fresno, California. The cost to AARBF to send a
child to one week of summer camp is approximately $800
per child. If you and/or your organization would like to
participate in sending these children to camp please
consider these opportunities:
Sponsor a Child
Sponsor a cabin
Become a Camp Counselor or Bus Chaperone
As you can imagine it takes a lot to organize and
operate a camp such as this. And there are many roles
you could play. I know that AARBF is looking for Champ
Camp Counselors and also for bus chaperones to get the
kids to and from Champ Camp.
For an application to become a new counselor please see
and go to "Champ Camp".
If you are unable to commit the week as a Champ Camp
Counselor please consider being a bus chaperone from
Southern California. The busses to Champ Camp
(Fresno) leave from SoCal on Saturday, June 14th and
return late that afternoon - so although it is a long
day, it is so worthwhile! On the return trip after camp
concludes busses head to camp on Friday, June 20th so we
can see the talent show, have dinner and stay over. Then
head back to SoCal on Saturday, June 21st with the kids.
Please contact Renee "Baker" Croteau at

UPDATE ON A PRESS RELEASE SENT OUT FROM HBNW ON JAN. 16,
Caregiver for elderly HB woman gets prison
By Denise Nix, Staff Writer
Article Launched: 02/29/2008 11:42:19 PM PST
An aide who stole and cashed checks belonging to a
93-year-old disabled Hermosa Beach woman she cared for
was sentenced Friday to three years in state prison.
Shekesha Shenea Andrews, 32, previously pleaded no
contest to one count of theft of an elder by a
caretaker, according to Deputy District Attorney Michael
Her boyfriend, Perry Lewis Jr., 47, has pleaded no
contest to theft from an elder and was sentenced to two
years in state prison, said Gargiulo, who heads the
elder abuse division.
Andrews took eight checks, and used four of them to buy
$444 worth of groceries - mostly liquor and cigarettes,
said Detective Lance McColgan.
Andrews was hired in November through an agency by the
victim's family, which lives out of state. She was to
provide live-in care for the blind woman with dementia.
The agency did not perform adequate background checks,
McColgan said. If it did, it would have seen that
Andrews was on probation for a grand theft conviction,
When a supervisor came to the woman's home to pay her
bills, she noticed the missing checks and contacted the
"Thank God we caught it early," McColgan said. "They
could have easily emptied her out."
Surveillance camera footage from the grocery store
showed the Los Angeles couple using the checks, McColgan
After their arrest in January, Lewis admitted he snuck
into the victim's home and stayed upstairs. The
wheelchair-bound woman never went to the second floor,
McColgan said it's important that the public is aware of
cases like this, and he hopes that the prison sentences
will send a message to those who want to take advantage
of the elderly and disabled.
"I take these cases to heart," he added.

~ Laurie Slawson, RPV Chief of Police Admin. Sect.
I so enjoyed my
initiation into Neighborhood Watch! The meeting at my house was
absolutely painless and the Map Your Neighborhood meeting was (at
first!) frightening but ultimately fascinating and, sounds corny,
but empowering. I think, as a community, we cannot thank you enough,
Kelly and Tracy!
~ Dana Graner, HBNW Block Captain
I attended last weeks
training. LuAn Johnson did a fabulous job. I am so
excited about training my neighborhood AND my office. I have
signed up for CERT starting next week. She has a way of
keeping your interest and inviting enthusiasm among her
trainees. I was
incredibly happy that I came out on that rainy night. Thanks
again to Dr. Johnson and you for setting it up. ~ RBNW Debbie
Thank you so much for
the training opportunity last Saturday. I am anxious to roll
this info out to our entire neighborhood 15-20 houses at a
time. Could you please forward on this message to Kelly
and the other chairpersons for putting on a FANTASTIC and worthwhile
training session. I'm fired up to share it with our other

You hit a Grand
Slam! Excellent! ~ Herb
Kahn, Torrance CERT & former Disaster Preparedness
I want to say thank you
for the amazing job that you all did. You are an inspiration on how
to set your goal and accomplish it. Thank you so much for your
leadership. ~ Brandy
Harkins, Beach Cities Health District
On behalf of the Redondo
Beach Fire Department, I would like to extend to you and your team
very heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done in the delivery of
the 3-day Map Your Neighborhood event. Over the weekend, I received
3 personal telephone calls from constituents within my community
letting me know how much they appreciated the program. Please
be assured that I support your efforts and look forward to building
a stronger partnership in improving our community-based disaster
preparedness efforts between our two-cities. ~Daniel P. Madrigal, Fire
Chief Redondo Beach Fire Department
Congratulations on a
very successful MYN 'production'! All of the comments from the
Torrance DSV (Disaster Service Volunteers) have been very positive
and they are most eager to get out to their neighborhoods and get
busy. Thanks for the
untiring effort all of you put behind this effort; if just one life
is saved it could well be the result of your work! ~ Kathi
Galbasin, Torrance CERT Volunteer Coordinator Commissioner, Disaster
Council Member of TARA, Neighborhood Watch Block Captain
looking out for neighbors.
Neighborhood Watch Program is organized to enable the police/fire
and the community to work together. The goal is simple: To make each
home, each street and each area more crime resistant
and promote education and training for Individual Disaster
Preparedness as well as Neighborhood Preparedness. HBNW has
adopted and will begin training Block Captain's an innovative 9 step
program called Map Your
Neighborhood Watch ensures that group members are
informed, aware and involved. The goal of making our area more crime
resistant and prepared as a neighborhood for a disaster is worth the
effort and it works.
group status is not automatic. In
order to achieve Watch Group status and have signs posted in the
neighborhood, neighbors must attend an INTRODUCTION BLOCK MEETING
hosted by the Block Captain. These 12" x 18" aluminum watch
signs are provided free to those neighborhood watch groups who have
achieved watch group status. The signs, erected on public
streets by the HB Public Works Department, remain the property of
the City of Hermosa Beach.
IMPORTANT ~ IMPORTANT ~
HBNW coordinators are doing a two-year anniversary
evaluation and this is important if you are a Block Captain and
have not had an INTRODUCTION MEETING.
You will be moved to RESIDENT STATUS if you do not contact us
for verification that you still want to be a BLOCK CAPTAIN. At
some point, you voluntarily signed up to be the BC for
your street and we appreciate your awareness to safety with your
immediate neighbors. However, for reasons unknown to us,
we see that some BC's are not participating in the HBNW
program. Tracy and I have a false sense of how strong the HBNW
program is. So, if we do not hear from you, you will
be considered a RESIDENT STATUS. A RESIDENT is an
individual that receives our e-mail notifications up until your
block has a resident that signs up to be the BLOCK CAPTAIN.
Having extraordinary Block Captain numbers on paper is not as
important to us as having engaged residents that will be
the "glue" that keeps the block informed on matters concerning
general safety on the block. By knowing who lives where and a
sense of what is "normal" and "not normal" in the neighborhood,
residents are watchful of suspicious activity. In addition, a
BC must be aware of how many people are in the house that
would need assistance in a disaster. Your position as a
Block Captain is appreciated and valued by the HBPD, HBFD and the
City of Hermosa Beach.
What will move you to
a neighborhood works together to help take care of its residents, a
safer and more cohesive neighborhood is
created. The amount of crime in the
neighborhood will decrease and a greater sense of security and
well-being will be felt by all the neighbors. When a disaster
occurs, you and your neighborhood will work efficiently to help each
other cope without professional emergency first
responders. By law, Fire Departments are mandated to assess
the community and do the greatest good for the greatest amount of
people. In order to do this, they must drive the city and
first see for themselves the areas impacted and take notes on
what is happening. As painful as it is for them (as they are
considered our heroes), they might have to drive right by your
burning house or injured spouse in order to do what they are
mandated to do which is, again, to do the greatest good for the
greatest amount of people. This is where you and your
organized block can make a real difference in your recovery of a
disaster. You organize your neighbors to keep each other safe
and self-sufficient during the critical one-hour time frame after an
emergency and in the following
- If you have not had or
scheduled a INTRO MEETING.
- If you have not forwarded
weekly e-news and crime log on to your residents (YES, we do
- If you
did not sign up for the Map Your Neighborhood presentation (YES,
it was mandatory that BC's
citizens are the best asset any police department has to help fight
crime. The program is designed to maximize that asset. The HBPD
maintains lines of communication with the Coordinators of
Neighborhood Watch, supplying crime and suspect
information. This is done through Block Captains on each
street. The HBNW team also works with the community to solve
neighborhood problems. The system relies on the willingness of
people to get involved, stay informed of area problems, and work
together on solutions.
The Block Captain acts as
a representative of your street. You do not represent the
needs of all 400 blocks in HB, as everyone's block has different
concerns. When you
are in a public arena, you may state for which block of
residents you are the Block Captain. Please do not say that
you are a NW representative. Only the Coordinators can make
that claim. We do not imply that we make a public statement on
behalf of every block in HB.

|Featured BAD GUY of the week
As reported by Chief of Police, Greg
SavelliOn Friday, 1-25-08 at 9:34pm, Officers and Fire Inspectors
doing a routine check of Suzy's Bar and Grill on Aviation found the
place to be extremely over-crowded. The patrons there were not
the normal crowd, it was a 30-40 something crowd. When the
officers and fire inspector did the routine check, they found a
local popular band playing and the place stuffed with 219+ people
when occupancy allowed for 82. The owner informed them that he
had no bouncers/doormen as this was a private event and he didn't
anticipate such a large crowd. As Chief, I personally responded and
spoke with the owner. The patrons were cooperative and all
exited the establishment upon request and once the number was
diminished, they allowed patrons to re-enter up to the occupancy,
however there was still no provision for security at the door and
over 60 persons waiting to get in. Per Suzy's CUP resolution
97-72 under "General Operating Standards and Conditions", paragraph
8, the Chief of Police may determine a continuing problem exists and
may authorize the presence of a police approved doorman and/or
security personnel. I assigned a police officer to remain at
Suzy's to ensure the over crowding situation did not re-occur.
I will be billing the establishment for our presence and submitting
this as part of the CUP review on the 19th to the
Planning Commission as required by the CUP.
