A new civic center provides a new look for LH

Posted on 08 March 2017 by La Habra Journal

As many of you are now realizing, the new La Habra City Hall is open and operational.  And if you haven’t seen it, you should definitely have a look.
There was much concern and discussion when the plan to invest in a new city hall was initiated. However, it was time. La Habra had one of the oldest city halls and civic centers in the region.  Buena Park, Fullerton, Anaheim and La Habra Heights had created new city halls over the last eight years. It was time for La Habra to upgrade.
Like when La Habra Heights remodeled its city hall, some residents in La Habra were concerned if investing in a remodel and relocation was money well spent. In my opinion I can say it was.
La Habra’s new civic center is something that residents can be proud of.  The location of the finance department, where you pay your water bill and the planning department, where you can pull permits,  has easy access and looks to be an expedited process.
The walls upstairs, where the engineering department is located, are adorned with historic photos of La Habra.  As the city nears its centennial, this is a nice touch.
The stone on the interior, along with the wood beams and vaulted ceilings make the civic center more inviting than it had been in its older location. It just needs a large fireplace, hot chocolate and I’ll feel like I’ll  want to hang out there before I hit the slopes.
The council chambers are modern but intimate.  Residents sit closer to council members and thus council members are sitting closer to their constitutes.  To me this makes for a greater possibility for a  better connection between elected officials and the people they represent.
The fact that there are already plans to hold events inside the civic center shows that it will be used as a public building and not just for city government alone.
An interesting tidbit that I was reminded of as I walked around the outside of the council chambers. The location is adjacent to the monument  with the bell that symbolizes the “birthplace of La Habra.” The civic center has moved full circle and is now located on the location where the city was founded.
I looked around the facility and pictured a variety of civic events and how this new center could fit in them. The annual Christmas Tree lighting has the potential to be great. The Citrus Fair is rumored to be using the location to house the student STEM program. The Tamale Festival will be right along the side of the building and can provide resources.  The patio outside will be great for city awards and recognition like local high school athletic titles and other large group events.
I admit, I was one of those who had reservations about the new city hall. I agreed they needed to upgrade, but was concerned how it would turn out.  I can enthusiastically say that from what I have seen, it is indeed money well spent and something that will provide much for the community for years to come.

There’s a lot more to the ballot this election

Posted on 19 October 2016 by La Habra Journal

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but there is an election coming up.  There has a lot that has been said regarding the presidential candidates. It has caused tension in our country. So much so that some have said that because of the presidential candidates, they don’t feel like voting.  This is a mistake.
One of the greatest privileges we have in this country is the right to vote.  As citizens, we should exercise that right as much as possible.  The great thing about elections is we have the ability to vote for whomever we want.
Don’t not vote (yes, I know that is a double negative) because you are disheartened with the presidential candidates.  There are so many other people and propositions that have a direct impact on us on this ballot. Those are the items you should be looking for and looking to vote on.
For the first time in two election cycles (also known as four years), we are voting on city council members for La Habra.  As opposed to presidential candidates, these candidates have a lot of impact on our day-to-day lives. Roads, water, trash pickup, parks, recreation, city codes, are some of the things that the city council is responsible for.
The League of Women Voters held a live debate with the candidates for city council (they are holding one for La Habra City School Board members tonight) and it had some residents in attendance.  Taking off of the League’s efforts to let people hear from the candidates, I interviewed the council candidates and posted the video interviews to the La Habra Journal YouTube channel and to our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Further, the link to the videos was shared on community Facebook groups.
The interviews are simple and just a few minutes long.  They were meant to help residents put a face to the name on their ballot and to hear something about them in their own words.
Interestingly enough, posts about good local street taco vendors (of which I am excited about) and T&S Burgers received more comments and discussion than the video interviews of the city council candidates.
Again, I know this election cycle has really changed the way we look at politics in America.  However, that shouldn’t be something to deter you from researching and voting for who will help guide your city.  I encourage you to research the candidates so you can vote with knowledge and confidence in your picks for city council.
I will be posting my interviews with the candidates running for La Habra City School Board soon.  These candidates will have a direct impact in shaping the city’s school district as they will be tasked to hire the new superintendent.  So, yet another local race for us to pay attention to and learn about the candidates.
So, whether the presidential election has got you disheartened or motivated, be sure to get out and vote for our local elected positions. It really is a vote for you, your neighbor and your community.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have to get back to digging through the massive book with all this year’s propositions listed.

It's time to focus on the school district

It’s time to focus on the school district

Posted on 21 July 2016 by La Habra Journal

As was reported last issue, Dr. Susan Belenardo will be retiring from the La Habra City School District. This comes at a time where there is a vacant seat on the school board and an election for that vacant seat and another seat looming.
This is worth noting because it is the elected school board that hires the district superintendent.
There has been a lot of talk and questions concerning the process in which to select the new superintendent for the La Habra City School District. Much speculation and guessing has gone on since her retirement was announced.
This concern and enthusiasm for the next top administrator for the district probably comes from parents and concerned citizens who, like most in education, want what’s best for the children.
With this in mind, it’s important to note that there has been a history of unease with the district.  A challenging strike by the teachers for a livable contract and concerns from parents regarding low test scores.
The next step in the process will be for the board to appoint an interim superintendent.  The interim can be from within the district or outside of the district.  They will also advertise the position. According to the current  board chair, John Dobson, No permanent superintendent will be hired until the new board has been elected and seated, which means spring 2017.
This means the interim superintendent will be in place at the beginning of the school year and into the spring. (Interestingly enough, this will mark the first time that neither school district in La Habra will start the school year without permanent superintendents manning the helm.)
It also means that the election this November will play a major role in the future of the La Habra City School District. Whoever runs and whomever is elected will have a say in the process and hiring of the next superintendent.
The board and the new full board have a large task ahead of them and something that should not be taken lightly and should not be rushed.
With the shadows of the past, it will be important for the board to conduct a hiring process that is inclusive of all parties involved.  The board has said that it will be seeking the services of outside companies to help find strong candidates.
Once the candidates are collected, the board should have a committee established that will include teachers, classified employees and community members to review the applications and determine who will be named as the finalists.  Then those will be sent to the board to interview and make a selection.
A suggested committee could be made up of the following: one classified, two teachers, two committee members.
This five person committee would be able to screen the applications and then come up with a handful of candidates that the new board will be able to interview them and then select the best person for the position.
It is vital to the district employees and the community that the board makes this process inclusive and with visible and sincere consideration of the candidates.
It is also important for all those who have expressed concern about the district and the selection of the future superintendent to voice their thoughts and concern to the district.
We as a community need to help do our part to ensure that we do the best that we can for our children and their education.
Take the time to see the candidates for school board and look for opportunities to help the district.

Children need an active place to go in LH

Children need an active place to go in LH

Posted on 07 July 2016 by La Habra Journal

It’s that time of year again, summer.  The time where the weather is hot and kids are home from school looking for something to do. While I have lived in La Habra for most of my life, something didn’t really dawn on me until this year.  There’s not much for today’s kids to do within the city.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot for younger kids to do, the Children’s Museum and a variety of parks, most with newly installed equipment.  However, one of the things that the city is missing is an escape from the heat. Sure there is the LHHS pool, but what about another fun way for kids to enjoy the outside and stay cool. I’m referring to a splash pad.  Neighboring cities have built splash or water areas for children.  Fullerton has Lemon Park and the water at its Founder’s Square Plaza. La Mirada went beyond a splash pad and built a water park next to its community center. Even Brea has a little splash area on Birch Street.  La Habra? Not so much yet.
There are actually discussions within the city about a water area or splash pad at one or more of the parks.  The most likely location would be at Portola Park, a park that’s centrally located, and near other resources that families can enjoy.  They would also have to look at putting water areas on the edges of the city to make it convenient for all residents. Parks like Oeste and Estelli or Descanso would be good possible locations.
This will allow children a place to have fun and cool off.  It would also help drive more people to enjoy the parks in the city. However, water areas are a bit pricey. The city would have to look for grants and other financial sources to help fund the water projects.  Don’t be surprised if a water area does come into the city that a community-lead project like KaBoom would have residents volunteering with the city to create and build the water areas.  No matter how it gets done, I think water areas at some of the parks should be included on the short-term plans.
That, along with all the current amenities for children takes care of the younger kids in the city during the summer. Now, what about the tween and early teens in the city?  What is there for them to do in the city? Are you thinking? Did you come up with anything?  Aside from “hanging out” and going to the movies or bowling, there’s not too much for them to do.  So, many of them are plugging into computers or various electronics.
Now, I’m not here to condemn technology.  It’s fine, and kids are going to utilize it (as well they should because it will help them develop skills needed in today’s world). But they need alternatives.  The absence of anything else to do allows for kids to be bored and thus “plug in.”
With the city’s and the La Habra Collaborative’s push for “move more, eat healthy” to combat childhood obesity and make for a more active community, I’m surprised there’s not something for kids to do.
Yes, the city offers camps and so does The Boys and Girls Club and they are great (I went to many of these when I was a child).  But what about the kids who don’t want to go to those events?   Wouldn’t it be great if there was some kind of trampoline center in the city? What about something similar to SkyZone in Anaheim or Rockin’ Jump in Santa Ana? That would allow an active alternative for kids and help them meet the city and Collaborative’s mission of getting kids moving more.
If you’re not familiar with these locations, they are indoor trampoline parks with jumping and activities like dodge ball, volleyball and basketball.  They keep kids busy in a fun environment.
Yes, La Habra used to have trampolines at the old miniature golf course on Whittier and Harbor and it used to have activities like a roller rink at Roller Madness on Whittier Boulevard near Beach.  But those places are long gone and there is nothing for kids to do anymore.
Maybe the Collaborative, city administrators and some of our commercial property owners can work together to find a suitable location and work to entice one of these fun centers to locate to La Habra.  This would create an active alternative for kids and help them get through the dog days of summer.

La Habra should  embrace art

La Habra should embrace art

Posted on 04 September 2015 by La Habra Journal

American author and poet Henry David Thoreau said, “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.”
This sentiment should inspire the creativity and the aspiring artist in all of us.
Artist Pablo Picasso further acknowledged our capacity for creativity when he said,   “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
This being said, art should be something we all contribute to and take part in. However, our community seems to struggle with developing its arts and cultural scene.
We are lucky to have an amazing place like the Children’s Museum to help inspire the creative minds of our children.  Buses with kids from school districts all over Southern California enjoy the museum.
However, citing Picasso’s challenge, when we grow up, where can we go in our community to ignite our own creativity, appreciate the work of artists and enjoy some culture?
Recently, the La Habra Business Connection, and in particular Michelle Brenier, initiated La Habra’s first Art Walk.  This event that allowed people to experience various types of art, was focused on helping to provide an outlet for local artists, children and adults alike.  Further, it was to generate an appreciation for art in general.
In addition to the Art Walk, the La Habra Art Association is opening a new exhibit that highlights the past 60 years of the association’s work and exhibits.
The annual Hillcrest Arts Festival in La Habra Heights is a well attended event that showcases art of all types and draws visitors from all over the surrounding area.
Further, other forms of art are working to be appreciated by the community.
In performances, Mysteryum Theater has been putting on a variety of shows at the historic Depot Theater and working to revitalize the theater and performances in La Habra’s central area.
While the Art Walk, the Art Association and Depot Theater are great vehicles in which to help bring art and culture to our community, there needs to be more effort made to help the La Habra community build its art and culture.
More outreach to the high schools (all three) and the middle schools (all three) should be done to cultivate young artists.
The Art Gallery should invite more artists to showcase and discuss their work. However, before this happens, more support, both financial and volunteer help, should be given to the LHAA by the city and by the community as a whole.
Businesses like restaurants, that can work as venues, should look to see how they might invite artists to their locations.
And finally, more effort needs to be placed on promotion and marketing.  If there’s an event held and nobody knows about it, is it really even worth it?
La Habra has the potential of growing its art community and really having something that could inspire future artists and make us all proud.

GUEST COLUMN: Relief & the rest of time

Posted on 22 July 2015 by La Habra Journal

By Amanda Bishop
Political science and history student at
Biola University

“The best anti-poverty program is a job,” President Obama stated during a discussion on poverty at Georgetown University this spring. He’s not the first to observe this in the United States.
But what about abroad? Could it be that the jobs created by businesses are the antidote to extreme poverty?
In 2011, Yale and the Brookings Institution teamed up in a study of global poverty. The results were exciting: from 1981 to 2011 extreme poverty dropped from being the reality for most people (52%), to less than an eighth (15%) of the global population.
What caused this great success? The Yale study found national growth in businesses was central. According to the study, “The poor countries that display the greatest success today are those that are… pursuing sensible and strategic economic policies to spur investment, trade and job creation.”
As is pointed out by the international investors at Norfund, “There are no examples of countries that have achieved lasting improvements of living conditions without economic growth.” In fact, business investment is essential for “economic growth and long term, sustainable poverty alleviation.”
Economic growth through businesses is a key component of lifting people out of poverty. Yet charitable organizations often take a different tack: Donate your cash, outdated cell phone, and gently used clothing. Buy our product and we’ll give a poor kid in Africa shoes. Allocate part of the national budget to government-to-government aid.
If business and job creation are at the core of eradicating extreme poverty, why do we continue to champion secondary means of addressing the issue?
I think we are misdiagnosing the problem. We try to ‘fix’ chronic poverty with temporary relief.
Relief is a useful, even critical, tool for immediate needs following a crisis. If my heart stops suddenly, I need the relief provided by a defibrillator. But once the immediate crisis has passed it’s fatal to continue jolting me with electricity. I need to switch to a longer term solution, perhaps eating cheerios and other heart healthy foods. Similarly, relief is not suited to the longterm work of development and when used as such, often does more harm than good.
Sometimes when we encounter extreme poverty we see it as if it were a defibrillator situation. “People don’t have shoes. We must get shoes to them right away!” We flood the needy area with free shoes from a non-profit, driving the local shoemaker out of business. But once the charitably donated shoes wear out, the problem resurfaces. We’ve misdiagnosed the problem and thus offered the wrong remedy.
We can better respond to chronic poverty with sustainable development. Organizations like HOPE International and Kiva fight for sustainable solutions by providing financial services for people in poverty. They are empowering businessmen and women who create jobs and wealth in communities.
To that end, here are some questions to ask before giving to a charity:
1. What kind of help is needed here, relief or development?
2. Does the relief/development provided match the need? (You wouldn’t send blankets to people suffering from a drought.)
3. Is this organization trustworthy? Check it’s www.charitynavigator.org rating.
It’s time to put away the defibrillators and switch to a sustainable development diet, for the long term health of our world.

Something worth catching

Posted on 01 March 2015 by La Habra Journal

It has been mentioned before in my commentaries, but it’s worth repeating. There is so much that can be done in this community to help it continue to grow, develop and prosper.  However, it depends on each of us to do something.
As you can read in this issue about the new mariachi group that was created at Washington Middle School. It soon spread to include Sierra Vista. Now Ladera Palma is looking to join and there is discussion to bring in Arbolita and its students in the dual immersion program into the group.  There is currently a waiting list of students who want to join the group.
This group was started from a single conversation and an interest by Washington Principal Mario Carlos and community member Jose Luis Rodriguez.  That’s it.  That’s what started this snowball rolling.  Rodriguez, who has been retired, is directing the group because he feels that he wants to give back to the community that has given him and his family so much.
That attitude needs to be contagious.
The story continues about how Carlos reached out to the Boys and Girls Clubs for help to get the instruments for this venture. Little did Rodriguez and Carlos know that the feeling of helping and community activism is contagious.  Danny and Cindy Singer of Singer Music provided all of the instruments for the mariachi group.
None of them do this for personal accolades or for “bragging rights” about what they did. They do it to help children and provide something for the community.
This is just one example.  Over the years in the LH Journal we have tried to highlight the efforts and actions of people in the community who have given back and done things for others in the community and worked to make our home better.
This needs to continue.
La Habra just shared the State of the Community. Unfortunately it only had a limited mention on Page 1 because of the deadline for this issue to get to the printer.  However, the community is strong, and it can be stronger through more people getting involved.
Freedom House Church has taken another step to reach out and help the community.  Volunteers from the church went out to help clean and repair a home on the corner of Walnut and Fourth Street that had fallen in disrepair because of the health of the homeowner.  The homeowner isn’t a member of the church, but rather just a member of the community who needed a little help.
Like the previous example, they didn’t do this for accolades or praise.  They did it to help better the community in which they live.
We have shared stories of how Randy McMillian and other members of the La Habra Host Lions continue to give back and help the community.  McMillian started the program where Lions Club members go out once a month and help clean up and repair a home where the homeowner could use some help.
There are always community events and fundraising activities in La Habra that help generate funds to continue to allow people and organizations to give back and help others.
This all stems from people caring about their community and getting involved.
On another level and definitely worth mentioning, community members in La Habra Heights got together to cause some dialogue and a ballot measure about something they feel could become an issue in the city, new oil drilling.
This became a conversation in the city because people care about their community.
The existence of this publication comes from residents who cared enough about the community to create a vehicle in which to share the stories of the great things that people do in our community.  It’s just another example of what people can do to better their areas.
La Habra has continued to grow and evolve over the years.  The community has grown and continues to get stronger.  The evidence of it truly being a caring community is evident through the actions of residents who continue to make it better.
The strength and growth of the community is dependent on the interest and effort of its members. I truly hope the attitude of Jose Luis Rodriguez is contagious and I hope we all continue to catch it. It’s up to us to continue to improve La Habra and we need to get started today.

New year, new commitments

Posted on 17 January 2015 by La Habra Journal

It’s that time of year again, time to start off the new year with new initiatives and a new focus.  It’s a way to kind of reset and focus on goals we want to achieve.  This is the issue that we include some resolutions from people in the community.   It’s always interesting to read what some in the community are planning on doing.
I actually recently completed a New Year’s resolution that I had from a year or two ago of cleaning out and organizing the garage.  I guess there’s no real time frame on when these resolutions have to be completed.  Just that we have goals.
One of the goals we have for the La Habra Journal is to continue to provide information and act as a resource for all those in the community.  This is why we have the business directory, the church listings, the business journal and other items.   Since it is the new year it is time to expand these goals.  Starting with this issue, and with the next couple issues, you will see some new sections within the pages.
This issue starts the Health/Fitness section. Within this section there will be articles that will help readers maintain health and fitness.  There will be articles on different medical topics for various age groups, as well as fitness tips and nutrition ideas written by local experts in these areas. The goal is to provide a resource and help people in the community live healthy and happy lives.
We will also publish a personal finance section every other issue starting in the next issue.  Not only do we want to help people be physically healthy, but we also want to help provide a resource for the community members to stay financially healthy.  Topics will vary and benefit all age groups with tips on saving for retirement and college as well as helping to clear up credit and applying for home loans.  Like the ones on the new health section, these articles will be written by local experts to provide the most relevant information for our readers.
Finally, we will be launching a section of the LH Journal in Spanish.  It has been a goal of ours for a while, but needed to get the right people in place to ensure we will provide information that readers want and need.  It won’t just be a translated version,  of the English language articles, but rather new content.  Some articles will include information from the English articles, but it will be more of a resource for the Spanish-speaking members in our community.  So, if you are reading this and know of someone who would appreciate local news in Spanish, please tell them to pick up the LH Journal starting with the next issue.
Again, the idea of implementing all these additions is to provide resources for our readers. Much of the content, you’ll notice will be written by advertisers.  This is not a paid piece or perk of their advertisement, but rather something initiated by me for information.  We have a great relationship with our advertisers and we believe in our advertisers and their benefit to our community (otherwise we wouldn’t have them in the paper). So, it’s natural that we reach out to them as knowledgeable sources from the community for these topics. It’s another way of helping to further connect our community and maintain a local perspective.
We will continue to look for ways to enrich the lives of our readers and as a La Habra native, I want to help ensure we do what we can to help this community.

Farewell and good luck to LHJ Sports Editor

Posted on 22 May 2014 by La Habra Journal

I hope at some point in the last five years you have had the opportunity to read some of the great sports stories written by our sports Editor Nathan Percy. Not just to find out about the amazing athletes from our three high schools, but to enjoy some of the best prep sports coverage in community newspapers today.Nate interview
I say this not just to promote the pages of the La Habra Journal, but rather to highlight the amazing job done by Nate. I have known Nate since he first came into my journalism class at Fullerton College in 2009.  I have seen him develop as a sports reporter over the years.  Now, it is a bittersweet time to say goodbye to him, but know it is a good move.
As of May 26, Nate will be covering sports for the Orange County Register.  Please, hold your boos.  It is a good opportunity for a full time position as a higher-profile news outlet that is expanding.  He will be moving to new territory too as he will work out of the San Clemente office covering prep sports in South Orange County.
You  may not have known it, or even really paid attention to it, but the Brea native gives his all when he covers these stories.  He has traveled as far as Bishop  and San Clemente to cover games by our local teams.  He has covered three sporting events in one day (on many occasions), writing and posting the stories online by that evening.
He’s a great reporter who knows how to get accurate information and tell compelling stories. Coaches and athletic directors have grown to know him, and you’d never see him without a notepad and recorder.  Many comments we receive are in regard to the “great” sports coverage in the Journal.
He also has overseen the creation and development of our Twitter account, and due to his constant updating and that of the reporters he oversees, he has created an indispensable source of information for some in the community. He has worked hard to make sure that results were posted immediately to inform the La Habra community.
With all that success, Nate remains one of the most modest, hardworking and focused sportswriters I have known.
While it will be a challenge to fill his shoes, as his former instructor, I can’t help but be so excited for this opportunity for him.
We will miss him and his writing in the LHJ, but look forward to watch his continued growth and cross paths with him when La Habra schools play schools like San Clemente, Dana Hills, J Serra and other South County schools.
If you want to come by and wish him luck and thank him for his sports coverage over the years, we will be celebrating a going away party for him at Pepz Pizza on June 7.  It will start about 4 p.m.
Everyone at the La Habra Journal wishes Nate well and good luck in his new venture.

PHOTO CONTEST: Getting a different look of our community

Posted on 23 March 2014 by La Habra Journal

There’s something great about photography. Photos can really capture the essence of something and freeze it in time. You can look at the photos on display at the La Habra History Museum and get a glimpse back in time. You can look at your own family photos and recount memories at the time when that photo was captured.
In order to help capture some different perspectives of our community, we launched the community photo competition. This is a way for YOU to share some perspectives of La Habra and La Habra Heights. We have been getting some really great submissions. We are extending the deadline for entries to April 15. Yes, that’s tax time. But perhaps taking some great photos in the community will help be a stress reliever.

Aside from bragging rights for winning or placing in the competition, entries will also:

Receive a ribbon and certificate

Be published in the La Habra Journal

Be part of a display at the La Habra Art Gallery in early August

And other cool prizes.

The idea is to help people see different sights of the community and share them with our readers.

There are various levels of the submissions.  They range from elementary school, junior high/middle school, high school and adults.
Fliers are being sent to the schools to help encourage children in the community to get involved in the contest.  Of course adults from all levels of experience are encouraged to enter as well.

The concept for the contest is simple.  Take photos that fit into the following categories:

Landscape/Nature – Images capturing flora, fauna, landscape highlighting natural elements in our cities.

People/Portraits – Images that capture the human element of life in our communities. Can be single person or multiple people that help illustrate the community.

Life in La Habra and Life in La Habra Heights – Open category that captures the look and feel of each of the two cities. Submission will be for each city in the category.

Photos will be judged on: theme, composition and personality.

Submit no more than TWO entries per category via email to:
contests@lahabrajournal.com

You should include name, city of residence, whatever you are entering and some information about the photos(s) you are submitting

As stated before, the idea of this contest is to get the community involved and help become  a part of showcasing our community.  Let people see the various sights that make up La Habra and La Habra Heights.
So head out and explore the cities.  Take a look at some of the unique aspects that make up our community and photograph it.

Good luck!
