Take precaution during the active coyote season

Residents of Leisure World, Orange County and other areas of Southern California may see an increase of coyotes roaming around during the months of January and February. These months are the beginning of coyote courting season. During this season, coyotes will have an increased appetites and will likely be seen more than other months.

While coyotes may have hidden away during the storms and rainfall that occurred over the past week, there will likely be an increase in activity once the storms in Southern California have passed, according to the organization Coyotes Orange County.

It is important for residents to take extra precaution during the courting season. That means supervising your pet when they go outside, even if it’s just in the backyard. In extreme circumstances, coyotes might see household dogs as threats or competition and attack. Residents should also take care to reduce pet waste and any food or trash left outside. 

Though not as often as other cities surrounding it, Leisure World does have its occasional coyote sighting. In December, there were four reported coyote sightings in the monthly security report (see page 10 in the Jan. 12 issue)  and three in November (page 14 in Dec. 8 issue). 

If any resident comes across an approaching coyote, it is important to immediately use negative reinforcement such as shouting, throwing rocks, spraying with a garden hose and other hazing techniques to dissuade the animal from approaching. 

Once at an appropriate distance from a coyote, call Security at 562-594-4754 or the Long Beach Animal Care Services at 562-570-7387 to report the sighting. It is important not to engage with a coyote, even if it seems sick or lethargic.


Bathroom Accessibility Program Returns

Leisure World residents who have trouble stepping into the shower for any reason are likely eligible for a free bathroom upgrade. For nearly two decades, the City of Seal Beach has run the Seal Beach Bathroom Accessibility Program to help residents of Leisure World modify their bathrooms; making them easier for seniors to use as intended.

The units in Leisure World were built in the 1960s, before ADA regulations were established. As a result, the fiberglass tub/shower combinations can be a challenge for seniors to use. The funding from the County of Orange and HUD is used to modify these fiberglass units to make them more accessible to the residents for free.

How is it done? The side wall of the existing fiberglass tubs are cut to just a few inches from the floor. The tubs are then refinished with a new coat of fiberglass to look like new, and a custom glass shower door is installed. The process converts the tub/shower combination into a functioning shower. This eliminates the need for seniors to lift one leg up and over the tub wall; which is particularly dangerous when standing barefoot on a wet surface.

The Seal Beach Bathroom Accessibility Program is an innovative City Program designed to provide the residents with a more convenient and safe method to access the bathroom shower. The grant funds can also be used to build an in-shower bench, add grab bars and/or replace an existing toilet with a high-boy toilet; further assisting seniors.

To qualify, resident households must meet certain income guidelines. Savings do not disqualify you. All applicants must be over 55 years of age and have a gross annual household income less than or equal to the Orange County levels listed below:

One person household: $75,900

Two person household: $86,750

Three person household: $97,600

In addition to the income requirements, a licensed medical doctor must complete the Doctor’s Analysis Form (included in the application) that rates the physical condition of the applicant with respect to mobility problems, pain with movement, or trouble with balance. This rating allows the program to help the applicants who are in the most need first until all the funds are spent.

The bathroom improvement process is coordinated by CivicStone (www.civicstone.com): a company hired by the City of Seal Beach to review all applications and manage the construction improvements with the approved contractors. Once approved for the program and scheduled for work, the improvements usually take less than a week to complete.

 “Many residents get confused on the application process,” said Monique Miner, program administrator. “They don’t realize you can have substantial savings and still qualify for the free upgrade. We are just a phone call away and can help residents apply for the completely free upgrade. But don’t delay completing your application, because funds are limited!”

Applications are currently being accepted and are available online at https://www.civicstone.com and from the City of Seal Beach’s website.

Yuri Lotakov and Richie Freedman will perform on Friday

Those who missed the outstanding performance of Yuri Lotakov on Oct. 29 have another chance to see him and Richie Freedman play on Friday, Jan. 20, in Clubhouse 4 at 4 p.m. At his previous performance, the standing-room-only audience didn’t want him to leave the stage. 

Lotakov got his start through his mother, a piano teacher who encouraged him to go into music. He achieved early success in Ukraine, beginning his training in piano at 5 years old and playing his first public performance at 9. Lotakov graduated from the prestigious Kiev Conservatory with a Ph.D. in 1971. He has played extensively with major orchestras in the in Ukraine, Russia, Europe and South Africa. 

In 1976, Lotakov tried to get out of the Soviet Union, but it wasn’t easy. When he applied for permission to leave, he was punished by losing his teaching position plus having all his music appearances cancelled.  This went on for two years. Lotakov persisted and succeeded in coming to the U.S. and eventually moved to Leisure World.

Luba, Lotakov’s wife, said that her husband is not only a brilliant musical artist, but he’s also a very successful computer programmer who’s run his own business for many years.   

Four months ago, Lotakov met Freedman, who was also a talented musician from a young age, at a LW Bicycle Club meet up. Realizing they both had a love of music, Freedman asked Lotakov to play Hummel’s trumpet concerto together and they decided to prepare for a full concert. 

Freedman started his music studies at 8 years old and was performing in New York at age 12.  By the time he was in UCLA, he was already performing with Della Reese, The Impressions and Ike and Tina Turner. After attending undergraduate and graduate schools he went in a completely different direction: law enforcement for 35 years. After retiring he went back to music as a jazz trumpeter for several big bands plus performing with several major-name artists. To learn more about Freedman visit richiestrumpets.com.

City of Seal Beach

Runoff elections for City Council are now underway

No candidate for Seal Beach City Council in Districts 3 or 5, which covers part of Leisure World, secured a majority of voters. That means they did not get at least 50% plus one in the November elections.  Therefore, runoff elections are underway.

In District 5, Mariann Klinger, a Seal Beach planning commissioner, and Nathan Steele, who owns an advertising agency specializing in Christian programming, are vying for the seat. 

It was left vacant when Councilwoman Sandra Massa-Lavitt of LW termed out. District 5 covers LW west of St. Andrews Drive.

In District 3, Lisa Landau, an accounting manager and longtime volunteer in the community, and Stephanie Wade, a veterans policy advisor and environmental activist, are competing for the seat.

District 3 covers The Hill, Bridgepoint, Heron Pointe and the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station.

Active registered voters in those districts will soon receive a new ballot and voter information guide in the mail from the Orange County Registrar of Voters. Ballots went out beginning Jan. 3.

Ballots must be returned by mail, postmarked by Jan. 31, and received from the U.S. Postal Service by Feb. 3 or they can be dropped off at one of the following locations:

• Registrar of Voters’ drop box near the Administration Building is available 24/7.

• Seal Beach City Clerk’s office, 211 Eighth St., open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. on Jan. 31.

• Mary Wilson Branch Library, 707 Electric Ave., drop box available 24/7.

• The Registrar of Voters office, 1300 S. Grand Ave., Building C in Santa Ana, is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. on Jan. 31.

No voter centers for in-person voting will be operated. Postage is not required for voters who chose to mail their ballots.

The five-member council has some important issues to grapple with in 2023.

Council members will decide where to allow the development of new housing, which the state is mandating, and whether to continue allowing restaurants on Main Street to use parking spots for outdoor dining. 

They will also consider whether to continue repairs on the pool at McGaugh Elementary or build a pool in a new location and whether a restaurant should be built at the end of the Seal Beach pier.  

How to stay safe as a pedestrian

Many people enjoy walking or biking as an alternative to driving to get around or to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.  

Leisure World has implemented many safety measures to protect pedestrians including lighted crosswalks, wide sidewalks, and visibility flags for residents to hold while crossing heavily trafficked streets.

It is important for both pedestrians and drivers to maintain awareness of pedestrian safety and rules. Below are some of the safety tips from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center:

Be Safe and Be Seen: Make yourself visible to drivers

• Wear bright/light colored clothing and reflective materials.

• Carry a flashlight when walking at night.

• Cross the street in a well-lit area at night.

• Stand clear of buses, hedges, parked cars, or other obstacles before crossing so drivers can see you.

Be Smart and Alert: Avoid dangerous behaviors

• Always walk on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic.

• Stay sober; walking while impaired increases your chance of being struck.

• Don’t assume vehicles will stop. Make eye contact with drivers, don’t just look at the vehicle. If a driver is on a cell phone, he or she may not be paying enough attention to drive safely.

• Don’t rely solely on pedestrian signals. Look before crossing the road.

• Be alert to engine noise or backup lights on cars when in parking lots and near on-street parking spaces.

Be Careful at Crossings: Look before you step

• Cross streets at marked crosswalks or intersections, if possible.

• Obey traffic signals such as “Walk/Don’t Walk” signs.

• Look left, right, and left again before crossing a street.

• Watch for turning vehicles. Make sure the driver sees you and will stop for you.

• Look across ALL lanes you must cross and visually clear each lane before proceeding. Even if one motorist stops, do not presume drivers in other lanes can see you and will stop for you.

• Don’t wear headphones or talk on a cell phone while crossing.

Volunteer woodshop supervisors needed

The newly remodeled Woodshop in Clubhouse 1 is open and gaining in popularity. In hopes of extending the hours to accommodate more residents, the Recreation Department is looking for a few good woodworkers to join our roster of volunteer supervisors.

 “Seal Beach is a wonderful city with a rich history and small-town appeal.

“We are surrounded by big cities that have “Big City” problems.

“I will work to keep Seal Beach a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family.

Letters to the Editor


If you are like me, change is tough. We already separate recycle items. Who wants to separate food scraps, and dirty napkins? Well, not me. However, I was recently made aware why we need to do this. It’s the law as of Jan. 1, 2023.  Cities throughout California are adopting these programs—they have to.

So, what do we do with all the food scraps before we take it out to the bin outside? I made a canister for my mother. She had an ugly old pot sitting on her kitchen counter for it. I thought it looked awful.  So, I came up with a nice alternative.

I found a tin canister at the craft store, then added the word “Compost” to the front in nice lettering.  On the back I put “Newport Waste” in small lettering at the bottom (she lives in Newport Beach).  

A 2.6 gallon liner fits the canister well.  Biodegradable liners need to be clear or translucent green.  A small paper bag will also work.

So, to use this cute canister, just put the liner inside it, fill it as you go and then toss it in the outside container when convenient or full.  

Any container, like an old pot, can be used for this composting task.  But why not make it a nice part of your kitchen and a new, fun way of doing things?  I’m off to the craft store to find a canister for myself.

Redeemer Lutheran

Psalm 27 encourages believers to remember:  “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?”

“Seeking the Lord’s Light and Strength” is the theme for Redeemer Lutheran Church’s Sunday worship service at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 22. LWers are invited to join the service to share Scripture and Communion in the sanctuary at 13564 St. Andrews Drive, across from the Administration building where ample parking is provided.  

Dee Sessa and Teresa Smith will greet residents at the door and Sharon Heck will play the organ and accompany the quartet of Beverly Anderson, Pastor Lynda Elmer, Kay Pushman and Susan Sinner.  

Redeemer Lutheran thanks those who have contributed generously to the continuous food drive. LWers can bring non-perishable food items to the church at any time.  The food is distributed to those in need in the broader community.  

The church has an outdoor chapel that reflects God’s light on sunny days, and is available 24/7 for prayer and contemplation. People are welcome to come to the north side of the church, near the golf course to pause, sit on the bench, rest and pray.   

For more information about the service or outreach programs of the church, call 562-598-8697.

Assembly of God

Service/Gathering Times: Sunday morning at 10:30 in Clubhouse 3, Room 2; Wednesday morning Bible study is currently on break. The Hymn Sing  will be held Sunday, Jan. 22, in the Clubhouse 3 Lobby at 6 p.m.

Sermon for this week:   Pastor Chuck Franco will present the next part in the “What is Truth?” series with a sermon titled “Our Healing God” from  Isaiah 53:4-5.

While many theological points and doctrines can be argued, a personal and undeniable act of healing cannot be discounted. One was  once sick; now they are not. One once was mentally tormented,   now they are not. One was enslaved to a chemical addiction, now they are not.  In some instances, God intervenes in a miraculous way that is not assisted by any human medical knowledge, practice or advice.  In some instances, God partners with medical providers to bring healing. In other instances, the afflicted is not completely healed until they have passed from this life and left their mortal body behind.  The indisputable fact remains that God is capable of divine healing, and that benefit is active today. 

Bible Study: What would change if one’s default response to problems was faith instead of fear? Cultural influences, the media, and politicians, whichever side one favors, use fear to win their argument.  2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given us the spirit of fear.”  So, if it is not from God, why do Christians entertain unhealthy fear?  “Fearless,” by Max Lucado, is a Bible study with life-changing possibilities. Discover with other LWers how to be victorious over the destructive effects of fear through Bible study, discussion and personal application.  

Contact: More information about the church can be found at www.lwassemblyofgod.com.

Those who would like prayer, personal contact from a pastor or a DVD of the Sunday morning sermon can contact pastors Chuck and Sheryl Franco by calling 562-357-4360 or emailing pastorchuck@lwassemblyofgod.com. Carolyn van Aalst is also available to receive prayer requests to add to the prayer chain at 562-343-8424.

Pastor Chuck’s sermons can be accessed on the Faithlife app under “Leisure World Assembly of God,” where people can also give online.

Community Church

Community Church thanks those who came and participated in the Wesleyan Covenant Renewal Service on Jan. 8. It was a powerful and meaningful experience for everyone involved. 

People are welcome to join Community Church this Sunday at 9:50 a.m. for a sermon titled “Called Up to the Show.” The church will look at the calling of the first disciples and how the early church can serve as a model for believers today. The sermon will be based on Isaiah 9:1-4 and Matthew 4:12-23.

As always, the word Gospel means “good news” and those who are in need of some good news are welcome to join the service in person or online. 

Per CDC guidelines, Community Church requires wearing masks indoors. The church will still hold fellowship outside at the conclusion of the service and look forward to indoor fellowship soon as the numbers improve. People can also view the service live on Facebook at @CommunityChurchLeisureWorld and via Zoom. People can contact the church office for the Zoom link.  

Those who are in need without another way to address it can call the church office to leave a message at 562-431-2503.

First Christian Church

First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors to join in worship and explore God’s word together, “That we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine,” Romans 1:12.

Message from the Pastor

Chapter 6 of Genesis deals with the heart of God and the thoughts of man’s heart.  In verse 3 the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless, his days shall be 120 years.”  Man had been dwelling on the earth approximately 1,500 years and God had been striving long enough. God saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent in men’s hearts was only evil.  

The Lord grieved in his heart and was sorry that he had made man.  God is holy, and in his holiness, sin cannot be tolerated and must be dealt with. In verse 7 the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, man and beast.

“But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.” 

God’s plan developed in the remainder of the chapter and eventually led to a well known verse in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”  2 Peter 3:9 also reveals that God is “longsuffering towards us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 

Weekend Services

Sunday services are held from 9:30-10:45 a.m. The service is traditional with hymnal music led by Janet Ray and Pat Kogok at the piano. This Sunday, Sandy Carlson will sing a solo.

Rabbi Mike Mymon will lead the hybrid service Saturday, Jan. 21, in Clubhouse 3, Room 9, and via Zoom at 10 a.m. 

Saturday’s Torah portion will be Vaera from the book of Exodus. Vaera (I Appeared) opens as God promises to redeem the enslaved Israelites and bring them to the Promised Land. When Pharaoh repeatedly refuses to let the Israelites go, God sends a series of plagues: water turning to blood, frogs, lice, wild animals, death of livestock, boils and hail. 

To receive a Zoom invitation, contact Jeff Sacks at 714-642-0122.

Congregation Sholom has served Leisure World since 1962. It offers a traditional Jewish service in person and online.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

There will be no church services—Sacrament, Sunday school or  Primary—on Sunday, Jan 22. Instead, there will be the semi-annual Los Alamitos Stake Conference.  The first adult session will be held at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan 21. The second session will be held at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Jan 22. Both meetings will be held at the Stake Center located at 4142 Cerritos Ave. in Los Alamitos.

The reading source for this year is the New Testament. The reading assignment for the week  of Jan. 23-29 is Matthew 3, Mark 1 and Luke 3. 

People are encouraged to pay special attention to Luke 3:5. Here Luke describes the effect that the savior’s coming would have: “Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low…the crooked made straight and the rough smoothed.” If a permanent mountain can be flattened, then surely the Lord can help us straighten our crooked paths.”

The message is “ Jesus Christ and his gospel can change you”.  

LW Baptist

At times genuine Christian believers find their assurance shaken, as Job did. Nevertheless, like Job, believers must continue to bring their broken hearts to God. This understanding enables and shapes their continuing worship, which will be the theme for LW Baptist’s service on Sunday, Jan. 22, at 10 a.m.  in Clubhouse 4. 

During the service, the church will sing and reflect on  “Hear our prayer, O Lord.” The choir will sing, “Tell it to Jesus.”

Faith Christian Assembly

Faith Christian Assembly delivers great biblical messages every week by Pastor Sheri Leming and other trusted pastors on topics relevant to life today. 

 In addition to its weekly services, the church has a great community support for many areas of life. The Grief Share program meets weekly on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. is currently in session and still open to new attendees. Grief Share is a caring setting to those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. 

Another vital group is the Care Ministry team, which ensures that members are regularly checked in on and cared for if needed. 

The Prayer Ministry meets at 5 p.m. on Sundays, just prior to the 5:30 service. The group prays for individual needs and beyond, including local, national and world issues. 

Faith Christian Assembly also regularly offers classes on subjects of interest to the congregation. Last year’s subjects included fraud awareness and prevention, senior care resources, illness prevention and nutrition. The church will hold a health class in February, with more details to come.

Being part of a church has so much to offer, most importantly it’s a wonderful way for people to grow in their relationship with the Lord and connect in real relationship with others. LWers are welcome to visit Faith Christian Assembly and, if it’s a fit, be a part of  the community. Get to know the warm and welcoming congregation, sing some wonderful hymns, and hear a great message that is sure to encourage.

“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord’” Psalm 122:1.

It reveals the name of God to Moses; the Parsha gives an account of the conversation between HaShem and Moses in which HaShem bestows Moses as a Divine proxy and Moses’ brother Aaron as his Prophet who will speak to Pharaoh.  Moses fears that his “slow” speech will be a hindrance and that Pharaoh will not listen to him.

All Beit HaLev services use the special prayerbooks, “Lev L’Lev,” which include excerpts from the Reform Siddur, “Mishkan HaT’filah.”

Beit HaLev and Rabbi Galit-Shirah are a part of the Union of Jewish Universalist Clergy and Communities. It is progressive in thought and traditional in liturgy. The services are joyous, meaningful and musical. Beit HaLev welcomes everyone who seeks a path to the Divine and doesn’t believe in labels. It considers all religions holy and valid. 

To request a membership form for Beit HaLev, call Rabbi Galit-Shirah at 562-715-0888 or email duets@icloud.com. Contributions to Beit HaLev are welcome and may be sent to Beit HaLev, P.O. Box 2279, Seal Beach, CA 90740.

Raymond Robert

“Bob” Fitzpatrick 


Raymond Robert “Bob” Fitzpatrick, 85, was born in Chicago, Illinois, on Feb. 24, 1937, and died peacefully in Orange County, California, in the presence of his loving family on Dec. 30, 2022.

In 1944, Bob, along with his sister Vivian and their parents Raymond and Margaret, moved from Chicago to Long Beach, California, where Bob attended several schools some of which included St. Matthews Elementary School, Jefferson Middle School and Wilson High School. Bob joined the U.S. Army in 1955 and was assigned to the 11th Airborne Division, 503rd Regiment, in Munich, Germany. He was honorably discharged in 1958, having earned a Parachutes Badge and Good Conduct Medal. He returned to Long Beach, where he met his future wife Joan and was hired as a coach at St. Joseph Elementary School.

By the time Bob and Joan married in 1959 at St. Joseph Church, coaching had become Bob’s other life’s passion, inspiring “Coach Fitz” to take classes at Long Beach City College and California State University, Long Beach, where he eventually earned a bachelor’s degree in recreation studies with a minor in coaching, while his family grew to include Coleen, Tim and Shawn. In 1970, Bob and Joan opened University Trophies, a business that allowed them to combine their love for sports, family, and community. While Bob coached, Joan ran the day-to-day production, and today, 52 years later, University Trophies is still a thriving, family-owned business. 

Bob went on to become the athletic director for the Los Angeles Archdiocese—Catholic Youth Organization (CYO), overseeing the Sports Department for 180 plus Catholic schools. After retiring from CYO, he returned to St. Joseph Elementary School, this time as a volunteer coach, and in 2006 he led the 7th- and 8th-grade flag football team to an undefeated season and the CYO championship.

For the past 25 years, Bob and Joan enjoyed living in Leisure World (11 years in Mutual 15, past 14 years in Mutual 7) spending time with family, and—of course—cheering on their favorite teams, most notably Notre Dame Football. Bob was a proud recipient of many honors and recognitions, including a Proclamation by the City of Long Beach, the Long Beach Century Club Ernie G. Pollman Memorial Award, Catholic Charities Employee of the Year, CYO Hall of Fame and Legends Sports Bar Wall of Fame. Lastly, St. Joseph Elementary School paid the ultimate tribute to Coach Fitz by naming the school’s athletic field “Fitz Field.” 

Bob is survived by his wife of 63 years, Joan Fitzpatrick; daughter Coleen (Fitzpatrick) Followell; sons Tim Fitzpatrick and Shawn Fitzpatrick (Carrie Fitzpatrick); sister Vivian Kiley; granddaughter Shauna Followell; and countless others whose lives he touched. Bob leaves behind a legacy of love and invaluable life lessons, and he will live in our hearts forever. 

A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 6220 E. Willow St., Long Beach, CA 90815 with an off-site reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent in Fitz’s memory to St. Joseph Elementary School in Long Beach. 


Guillermo (Bill) Ugaz


Guillermo (Bill) Ugaz, a 25-year resident of Leisure World, died Dec. 24 at Los Alamitos Medical Center with his family by his side. 

Born in Chiclayo, Peru, Bill moved to the United States in 1963.  He, his wife, and daughters moved from New York to Florida and finally to California.  Bill worked as a computer operator and retired in 1996.  In 1997, he moved from Sacramento to Leisure World where he found many friends, happiness and joy.  Bill loved being near the beach which brought back memories of his home in Peru.

Bill is survived by his wife, Rosa; three daughters, Lily, Carmen and Caroline; and six grandchildren.
