FOCUS ON BUSINESS
Mayor’s Letter
Hello and welcome to the Model City, “Where Quality
Service is Our Tradition.”
This is a great time to be in the City of Commerce and
I am proud to have the opportunity to be Mayor. We are positioned to accomplish great things and make improvements
throughout the city.
As part of our efforts to improve city services we have:
❖ Established a 5 year street maintenance plan
❖ Created the Mayor’s Business Relations Subcommittee to foster communication with the Industrial Community
❖ Initiated a Customer Service Program to enhance
city services
❖ Started a citywide beautification program called
Keep Commerce Beautiful.
There are also a great many other programs in the works.
Over the next few months we are hosting innovative events to
promote health and wellness and the objectives of our beautification initiative.
Our goal is to restore the appearance of our city streets,
public spaces, neighborhoods, and industrial areas. We are working to reduce litter, graffiti and
blight throughout the city.
Businesses interested in supporting these
exciting efforts are encouraged to work with
us and to attend the events that will be held
later this year. I can guarantee you a fulfilling and inspirational time.
As always we appreciate your support and
invite you to enjoy the best we have to offer.
There are many opportunities waiting for you as
an industrial resident of the City of Commerce and
we encourage you to explore the community.
Thank you for choosing to base your businesses in the
City of Commerce.

FOCUS ON BUSINESS
As your new Chamber Board President, I am pleased to welcome our business members to this issue of the Focus
on Business magazine. This ‘all-in-one’
magazine is a comprehensive portal to all
business and community services available in Commerce. Its specially designed
format and content has been designed to
provide quick, convenient access to the
information you want most.
The coming years are going to be
years of major changes here in Commerce
starting with a focus on redevelopment
efforts along the Telegraph Corridor, including the proposed Urban Entertainment Center, which will include hotel,
retail, and entertainment components
and is projected to generate 600 new
jobs. Other projects include the resurfacing of Washington Blvd., the Costco
development, continued expansion of the Citadel Outlets, a new auto dealership, and
a new Gold’s Gym. In the coming months and years, it is essential that the Chamber
and the local business community, in partnership with the City of Commerce, become
more involved in the economic development of our city.
We will continue to build on the strong foundation created by so many people in
the past and take our organization to the next level of development and service. Our
focus will be far reaching into all parts of the business community to rally the involvement of businesses in those respective areas. The bottom line is we want to provide
value-added services for our business members and support initiatives that result in an
even better quality of life.
Since its inception nearly fifty years ago, the Commerce Industrial Council Chamber of Commerce has worked tirelessly to provide leadership, advocacy, and services
to the community. The Chamber has helped strengthen the economy, and I have
no doubt our work has improved the quality of lives of many. Our members support
and involvement is paramount to the success of this organization. We encourage your
involvement in the process by becoming active in the Chamber. We are the voice of
business for the City of Commerce, representing over 300 members.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, thank you again to all of our advertisers whose dedication to this publication make it possible to provide the necessary tools needed to promote and acknowledge those businesses that contribute to our
community’s economic development.

FOCUS ON BUSINESS
This guide has been prepared for
YOU, whether you are a member of the
Commerce Industrial Council – Chamber of Commerce, a prospective member
of the chamber, a visitor to our many and
varied attractions, someone interested in
beginning a business in Commerce, or a
resident of our growing community. It is
designed as a handy resource and an outgrowth of service to our business owners
and residents.
Within these pages, you will find
many interesting facts about Commerce.
We hope they will provide an insight
into our community and the pride that is
shared by those within it.
What is the Commerce
Industrial Council?
Since 1959, the Commerce Industrial Council, a chamber of commerce,
has helped hundreds of businesses take
root in the City of Commerce. It has
been the voice of business since incorporation of the city in 1960. Determined
to avoid higher property taxes that annexation to any neighboring city might
bring, a hardy band of business leaders
and residents set out in 1959 to incorporate the land as the 67th city in Los
Angeles County. These volunteers proclaimed their intention to establish a
“Model City” with unique advantages
for industry and residents alike.
Today, the Commerce Industrial
Council has helped hundreds of businesses take root in our Model City.
Much of the effort of the Commerce
Industrial Council continues in business advocacy. As a business resident,
you have, undoubtedly, moved from a
city which imposed taxes, to our “No
Tax” City. There is no PROPERTY
TAX levied; no UTILITY USERS
TAX; no PAYROLL TAX; no GROSS
RECEIPTS TAX and LOW BUISINESS LICENSE fees, etc. The Commerce Industrial Council is proud to
have made significant contributions
Visit us Online at www.industrialcouncil.org
leading to the many benefits that you
receive today. We have over 45 years
of experience representing a vast variety of businesses and industry in
Commerce. The Chamber strives to
maintain a cooperative working relationship with the City of Commerce.
The Chamber is a membership-driven
organization supported by membership investments, program user fees,
and revenue from fundraising events.
Why join the Commerce
Industrial Council Chamber of Commerce?
There is no better investment for a
business or professional firm than membership in the Commerce Industrial
Council. The Chamber accomplishes
cooperatively for the individual business enterprise what the business could
not achieve alone. It represents business
interests on the local, state, and federal
levels of government, and advocates and
lobbies strongly for business.

Legislative Advocacy
The Spread the Word mid-month
direct mailing program is an efficient
way to reach your target market by designing your own letter-size flyer, which,
for a nominal charge, the Chamber then
mails it to all member representatives.
The Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee serves as a constant
“watch dog” over proposed legislation
that will affect business, and communicates its positions to legislators and
members.
Members-Only
Business Referrals
Networking Opportunities
“Business-After-Hours”

House and Mixers are hosted throughout the year by a different chamber

Organize Your Life to Lower Stress
New Years Resolution # 47: Be More Organized.
Do you have never ending stacks of paper all over your office? Are you constantly feeling tired or stressed out because you
don’t have enough time to meet deadlines? Do you have boxes
in your office that you haven’t looked at for years? If the answer
is “yes” then it is time to get organized. For many people, getting organized is a recurrent New Year’s resolution. Like other
annual favorites such as losing weight, getting organized is a
process that is achieved with time and effort. The good news is
that getting organized isn’t as hard as giving up yummy foods
such as chocolate ice cream and pizza and it can save you time,
money and frustration both at home and at work.
People want to loose weight because it improves their
health. Interestingly enough, research indicates that clearing
up all those small unfinished tasks such as organizing your
desk, cleaning out your closet, and clearing out the garage also improves health by
lowering stress. Research shows that “75%
- 90% of all visits to physicians are stress
related” (NMHA, 1997). Drs. Roizen and
Oz in their recent book, You Staying Young,
explain that stress is the greatest “ager” of all
since it increases the probability for developing heart disease, strokes, memory loss,
infections and cancer and that the most
damaging stress comes from the kind that is
generated by unfinished tasks. These Nagging Unfinished Tasks or NUTs may add
up to eight years to a person’s age! Who
knew that the clutter on your desk could
cause fine lines and wrinkles?
A disorganized life is not only bad
for your health, but it also wastes a lot of
time and money. Job stress is estimated to
cost the US industry between $200 and
$300 BILLION annually! IDC states that
the typical enterprise with 1,000 employees
wastes $6 million to $12 million per year
“searching for nonexistent information, failing to find existing
information or recreating information that can’t be found”. In
addition, it is estimated that employees spend 15% to 30% of
their work time looking for information. No wonder so many
people stress about not having enough time to meet deadlines.
Newsweek reports that the average American burns 55 minutes a day – roughly 12 weeks a year looking for things they
know they own but can’t find. Clearing out your life is vital
for saving valuable time and money. It is an important task
that your boss, wallet and family will surely appreciate.
A few helpful tips to de-clutter your life can go a long
way when it comes to your health, time and money. First
thing to remember when keeping your work area clutter free
is to try to “handle each piece of paper only once”. Now, to
take this quote literally may sound too extreme, but take this
into consideration next time you handle a piece of paper. You
know that sheet of paper reminding you of a seminar you have
to register for that you’ve shuffled around 50 times on your
desk? Pick up the phone and register so you are done with it.
However, aiming for effectiveness, not neatness is the most
important thing. Putting away things just
to clear off your desk can cause you to lose
or forget them. Be sure to have a designated
place to store things that you clear away so
you know exactly where to find it when you
need it. Second, clutter is rarely caused by
insufficient space or time. It is usually caused
by indecisiveness. Most people accumulate
clutter because they don’t want to take the
time to decide where things should go. If
you spend just 15 minutes each day identifying and assigning a location for items lying
around your office, you will decrease your
clutter. Lastly, use storage to declutter and
maximize your current space. Many offices
contain boxes, old files, outdated equipment
and other misc. items that rarely or never get
looked at but can not be thrown away. Keep
these items that are not used on a regular
basis in a storage area and use valuable work
space for, well work. If your business is expanding storage can also be used to create
more space in your current office, which is a
lot easier then having to move. Simply put, unused items can
be stored in a nearby storage facility for a reasonable price each
month and can save you plenty of space and time.
Whether it is business inventory, company records or everyday household items, you’ll find that Magellan Storage can
assist you in organizing your home or office. And while everyone has different needs, pretty much everyone likes having
more time on their hands and less clutter in their life.
Magellan Storage is located at 5415 E. Olympic Blvd in
the City of Commerce. The brand new facility recently opened
in February 2008 and features 1,400 individual storage units,
a cutting edge security system, a business convenience center,
covered loading docks and a designated play are for kids.

FOCUS ON BUSINESS
Jack Says...
A ROUGH START TO 2008
Jack Kyser, Chief Economist
The second half of 2007 saw the subprime lending crisis explode. The drama
has carried into 2008 with some additional unpleasant twists. Most notable is
the freeze-up in the credit markets, which
seems to be defying the Federal Reserve’s
efforts to resolve the problem. The spike
in oil prices can’t be overlooked either.
As a result, the word “recession” (are we
in one or about to enter one) has been
10
frequently mentioned. Whether it is or
isn’t a recession (the official declaration
will happen well after the fact), we are in
for much slower growth during the first
half of 2008 that will be quite painful,
especially for the housing-related and financial sectors.
The economy should begin to look
better during the second half of 2008,
reflecting the impact of interest rate cuts
by the Federal Reserve. Also, the Federal government’s “economic stimulus”
program should give a little boost to
growth.
California’s economy has also slowed,
with some of its metropolitan areas reporting year-over-year job losses during
the early months of 2008. Worse, the
state’s government is grappling with a
significant budget deficit, and the implications for county and city governments
are not good. Housing is a major source
of the budget pain, and as home prices
decline there will be requests for downward reassessments of property values.
Combined with lackluster retail sales,
all levels of government will have budget
problems in both 2008 and 2009.
Los Angeles County’s economy got
off to a difficult start in 2008, due to the
Writer’s Guild strike. While this costly
action has been settled, the industry is
not back to business as usual. Production has not resumed on many TV shows
(the latter sector bore the brunt of the
walkout). Further clouding the picture
is the expiration of the Screen Actor’s
Spring/Summer 2008
FOCUS ON BUSINESS
continued from page 10
Guild contract at the end of June. At
this writing, negotiations between the
studios and SAG have not started, which
further destabilizes the entertainment
industry’s production plans.
Another local business stalwart, international trade, continues to see declines in imports but strong growth in
exports. This industry faces multiple
uncertainties: the Longshoremen’s contract expires at the end of June; there are
still environmental challenges to port
expansion projects; and implementing a
“clean truck” plan has proven to be extremely difficult. However, there should
be a modest rebound in import activity
by year-end 2008.
The County’s housing sector is struggling, with a 4.6% drop in new permits
forecast for 2008. In the resale housing market, there will be continued declines in both unit sales and prices. The
weakness in housing has impacted the
County’s furniture and home furnishings manufacturing sector, and the job
declines here could stretch into 2009.
Is there any good news out there?
Surprisingly, the local tourist industry is
performing well, thanks to an influx of
foreign visitors (one benefit of the weak
U.S. dollar). There are a lot of new hotel projects either under construction or
proposed, while a large number of older
properties are being refurbished. The
professional, scientific and technical services sector is also moving forward. It
includes law, which should see a bonanza
of new business from the subprime lending mess.
The County’s nonresidential real
estate market is also holding up, as compared with less favorable trends in surrounding counties. At year-end 2007,
Visit us Online at www.industrialcouncil.org
the office vacancy rate was 9.7% with
only 2.3 million square feet of new space
under construction. The industrial vacancy rate at year-end 2007 was only
1.5%, with just 3.1 million square feet
of new space under construction. The
vacancy rate in “Central Los Angeles”
was just 0.7% while in “Mid-cities” it
was 1.7%.
What are some of the realities to factor into business planning for the months
ahead? 1.) Credit will be tight as banks
have become extremely risk averse. 2.)
Gas and diesel prices will continue to
run at high levels for most of 2008. 3.)
In a sluggish economy, there are always
opportunities to be found.

City Expands Library Services
The City of Commerce Public Library is following the
successful implementation of wireless Internet (“WiFi”) access
in the Central Library and three branches last year with two
major initiatives for 2008. The two initiatives are designed to
make the resources of the library more accessible to business
people and the general public.
CHAMBER MONTHLY
COMMITTEE MEETINGS
Government Affairs Committee
Aggressively addresses issues before the City that
impact the business community such as planning, zoning, business licensing, regulating practices, taxation
and street beautification, as well as business issues on
the local, county, state, and federal levels. The committee meets every first Thursday of the month at 8:00
AM at the chamber offices.
Ambassadors Committee
The first project, now complete, is the introduction of the
new “Unicorn” automated library system to replace the 13year-old system formerly in use. The old system was designed
for an earlier era, and was the result of the conversion from
paper cards in wooden drawers. Unicorn, then, is the library’s
third-generation system. It responds to the needs of people living in the twenty-first century, not the nineteenth.
The system enables cardholders to now look for books,
DVDs, or other material from home or work using the Internet. Cardholders with an active PIN number can place
holds, make changes to street and e-mail addresses, and
renew borrowed items without entering the library. Of
course, help with the system is available during the Central
Library’s normal business hours – call (323) 722-6660 for
answers to your questions. The website for the new system
is http://rooms.cocpl.org.
The second major initiative – and one which will last for
approximately 18 months from start to finish – is the renovation of the Central Library itself. Many readers of “Focus on
Business” have seen the architect’s rendition of the front of the
building during the focus groups held for the residents and
industrial community. The design for the renovated library is
a response to the ideas of community members and will feature new approaches to light and shelving, changed spaces, and
more. All the design changes will fit into the existing “footprint” of the existing building. Director of Library Services,
Evelyn Fullmore, summarized the project by saying, “A vital
library is the heart of a community, and we are dedicated to
keeping it beating strong well into its next 50 years.”
The next step in the renovation process will be the reloca-

Community Safety Specialist Has An Eye For Business
My name is Jim Van Derbeck and I
have worked for the City Of Commerce
for six years as a Community Safety Specialist. Since the beginning of February
2008, I have been assigned as the Business
Watch Coordinator. The Business Watch
program is designed to work jointly with
City staff, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Industrial Council and the business community. My partner for Business Watch is Deputy Gary Missakian,
assigned to the City of Commerce. Together, we work to achieve
our goal, which is to prevent crime while protecting and serving
the Business Community through education and involvement.
Some of the items of interest that may be impacting your business include:
❖ Theft of catalytic converters from high profile vehicles
❖ Theft of all types of metals from around your business
including copper, brass and other precious metals
❖ Credit card and check fraud
❖ Workplace violence
❖ Robbery or burglary
❖ Illegal parking problems including large trucks
❖ Graffiti

Here are a few tips for preventing your business and your
business neighbors from becoming victims:
❖ Call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department at
(323) 264-4151 to report criminal activity.
❖ Hold regular Business Watch meetings in your area.
❖ Be alert to unusual or suspicious persons and vehicles in

license numbers to be given to the Sheriff’s Department
in case a crime occurs.
❖ Place Business Watch stickers and signs in your windows
and parking lots and make them visible to the street to
deter crime.
❖ Communicate with your business neighbors regarding
operating hours and call the Sheriff’s Department if you
observe any deviation

Fraud is Everywhere – Don’t Become A Victim
By Deputy Gary Missakian
A company named Orco
Fire Extinguisher, came to a
Commerce business and stated
they were doing a 5-year routine safety check. They never
mentioned that they were soliciting. They had not specified
that it was their first time doing
the routine check nor the cost.
Shortly after performing the
routine check, the Commerce
company received an invoice
in the amount $383.15. The
Commerce company called
and spoke to a representative
at Orco. They stated someone would call back to explain the
charges. As of this time, no one has returned their call. The
Commerce company also stated, they have heard of the same
incident happening in the area.
The business community should be aware of scams. The L.A.
Fire Department does not conduct 5-year extinguisher checks.
If someone shows up at your business, unannounced, representing themselves as a utility company representative or a
member of the Fire Department, don’t let them conduct any
Routine safety checks until you call the company or department they represent. You should also call the Better Business
Bureau to verify if they have a listing of the company and if
any complaints are on file.
Here are some additional things to consider before authorizing work:
❖ Are the vendors in uniform representing a utility
company or Fire Department?
❖ Do they have a proper I.D. and badge?
❖ Is there a red fire engine or white vehicle clearly
marked L.A. County Fire Department parked in
front of your business?
❖ Does the vehicle license plate display the word Exempt indicating it is a government vehicle?
For additional information as to the validity of the person or their company, you can call The East Region Commerce Office, Fire Prevention Division, 2535 Commerce Way,

Red Light Enforcement System Helps Reduce Collisions
The Traffic Unit of the East Los
Angeles Sheriff’s Department and the
City of Commerce Public Safety Division recently announced that the automated enforcement cameras installed to
document people who run red lights at
four busy intersections in Commerce
are helping to reduce collisions and ease
congestion.
Sergeant Pam Brookwell, who heads
up the East Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station’s Traffic Enforcement unit said that
since the cameras were installed commuters have seen a notable difference in
the time it takes them to drive to and
from work and that Industrial residents
who have seen the improvements have
also made positive comments.
“Gridlock normally caused by large
trucks at intersections appears to have
subsided so traffic keeps flowing,” said
Brookwell. “Frankly, I have only received
one complaint since December.”
The cameras are located at the inter-
sections of Telegraph Road and Atlantic
Boulevard, Eastern Avenue and Slauson
Avenue, Slauson Avenue and Gage Avenue and Telegraph Road and Garfield
Avenue.
The program is operated by Redflex
Traffic Systems, an Arizona-based provider of traffic safety photo enforcement.
The program is administered by a traffic

Sheriff’s Department. Deputy Joe Key
has the professional background and expertise required to review violations via
computer and submit the evidence to
traffic court.
Drivers who are cited receive a series
of photos in the mail along with a court
date. Those wishing to contest the violation are encouraged to view the video
of their offense in advance. If someone
other than the owner of the vehicle is
caught on camera it is the responsibility
of the registered owner of the vehicle to
identify the driver. The fee for running a
red light at these intersections is $381.
The first cameras were installed in
November 2007 and the last installation
was completed in January. The Redflex
System was sold to the city on the premise that all costs to the city would remain
neutral.

Graphic Electric Is A Specialist
Graphic Electric is an electrical contracting business that specializes in commercial and industrial wiring. Graphic
Electric was founded in 1978 by Sam and
Yvonne Navarro. The business began in
a small home office and warehouse that
was rented in Los Angeles. Sam and his
first two electricians did the fieldwork
while Yvonne ran the office. After graduating in 1984 from Loyola Marymount
22
University, their son Steve joined the
company full time.
The Navarro’s and their crew specialize in wiring and servicing printing presses
and related equipment. Because of their
wide knowledge and training, Graphic
Electric has branched to other industries
specializing in motor controls. Their
staff’s knowledge in motor control, PLC
and AC & DC drives separates them from
other electrical contractors.
Graphic Electric and its team have
grown to (25) installation electricians,
(7) electronic service technicians and (2)
motor/pump mechanics. Their fleet of
22 service and installation trucks are dispatched to service all over Southern California. The company has recently moved
to a new 20,000 square foot facility in the
City of Commerce. The City of Commerce location has made business more
efficient because of the central location to
our neighboring industrial cities.

Monthly Networking Breakfasts
An Eye-Opener For Chamber Members and Our
Business Community
Since the Commerce Industrial Council Chamber of
Commerce is all about supporting business, it wanted to emphasize a more professional ---- rather than social ---- tenor
at some of its events.
As a result, the Chamber developed their rise and shine
“networking breakfasts” designed to put the focus of its functions back on its members and the companies they represent.
“We felt there was a need for a little more focused networking other than just a social event,” said Chamber Executive
Director Eddie D. Tafoya. “We think we hit a nerve.” Its
first breakfast in January 2007 saw more than 40 people, far
more than the “pie in the sky” figure of 20 that the Chamber
was hoping for.
Since then, the Chamber’s monthly Networking Breakfasts have taken off each month and have averaged a dozen
new people at each of its breakfasts, which feature a guest
speakers’ presentation with topics of interest ranging from
marketing strategies to employee HR practices, and small to
medium business resources.
As an added feature, each quarter, the networking breakfasts are turned up a notch and feature Speed Networking.
Not only do these unique networking events build relationships amongst members, they generate revenue if executed
proficiently. Speed Networking (takes the work out of networking), and is not only a premier, rapid networking method, but IT IS the most efficient and effective way to network.
Speed Networking lets individuals meet one-on-one in timed
one-to-three-minute increments, resulting in a fast-paced,
exciting and extremely effective networking and professional
relationship-building experience often referred to as the business-equivalent of “speed dating.”
The programs for each of the networking breakfasts are
different than a traditional chamber function such as an after
hours mixer because it is more focused on networking and
making that business connection. At each networking session, business members introduce themselves and their com-
panies, give a one-to-two-minute “spotlight” on the specifics
of their business, and then explain the types of business or
“referrals” they’re seeking. For example, the owner of a dogwashing kennel would be looking for dogs, while a financial
services firm may be looking for 40-year-olds seeking retirement advice.
“The key is to match up businesses that have like interests and help them to help their businesses,” says Chamber
Executive Director Eddie D. Tafoya. “Instead of just casual
conversation, it gets down to what they do...and what they
are looking for. It has this focus. Rather than just socialize,
they get to know more about their businesses. That’s what its
all about,” added Tafoya.
Businesses also have the opportunity to sponsor these
breakfast for even more added exposure and publicity. Chamber members can host free individual table-top sponsorship
exhibits at our breakfasts to showcase their products and/or
services. The Chamber is trying a variation of new programs,
and building on those that have worked throughout the years
to assist business grow toward a positive future.
Networking Breakfasts are held every third Thursday
each month from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. at various location
throughout the City of Commerce. Admission costs are $20
per person (if paid in advance) and $30 per person (if paid
at the door). For more information or to register, visit us at

INSTALLATION DINNER AND SILENT AUCTION
With over 250 in attendance at the
sold out gala, and nearly $9,500 spent in
the annual silent auction, this year’s Annual Installation of Officers and Directors Dinner made for one of the best of
its kind in recent history.
The event, held on February 28,
2008, at Steven’s Steak and Seafood
House in Commerce, featured “A Night
at the Opera” theme, chamber members
in opera-themed costumes, speeches
from the incoming and outgoing presidents, award presentations, and a silent
auction for items ranging from sports
tickets, bottles of wine, gift baskets, iPods, and color televisions to name a few.
The theme was
chosen to honor incoming President,
John P. Pringle of
Roquemore, Pringle & Moore, Inc.
Pringle has been a
fan of the opera,
especially it’s music,
since he was a young child, singing in a
boy’s choir and touring the world. The
evening’s event highlighted operas, such
as The Phantom of the Opera, Pirates
of Penzance, Don Giovanni, as well as
many others. Chamber members and
people from all walks enjoyed a great
evening of member-to-member camaraderie, an opera singer during dinner,
a silent auction, and an installation program. And best yet, you got to see the
Board of Directors and Ambassadors in
their character roles.
Outgoing President Helene Sim-

Chamber members and people from
all walks came to the Commerce In-

successes. Honorees for the evening’s
dinner included James A. Barry of AMVAC, who received the Loren Van Tuyl
Memorial Award, which is bestowed
to an individual for their ‘lifetime of
leadership, tireless commitment, and
invaluable contributions of service to
the community.’ Chamber Ambassador Joseph Zarrahy of the Commerce
Crowne Plaza/Commerce Casino was
awarded the Chamber Ambassador of
the Year Award, bestowed to an ambassador for their efforts in supporting the
chamber and its programs.
A somber, but joyous award presentation was made to Daniel Kingston “King” Cable posthumously as his
family was presented with the Lifetime
Achievement Award. Cable passed away
on January 23, 2008, at the age of 89
from complications of kidney failure.
Cable was a member of the Commerce
Industrial Council since 1970 and its
Board of Directors since 1978.
Incoming President John Pringle,
who has been involved with the chamber for over 25 years, first as a president
of the Buy And Sell In Commerce (BASIC) committee when Tom Hall was
the director, and then as a member of
the board, emphasized the importance
of everyone having a vested interest in
the success of the city and that is why
the chamber has remained a strong organization for nearly 50 years.
“We have the opportunity to continue the spirit of cooperation which
has existed between the city and the
business community for over fifty
years,” he said. We should thank all
those who have come before us, like
King Cable, and so many other business men and women and residents, for
establishing such a strong community,
and we must work together to keep
it strong. I look forward to working
with all of you to make this happen.”
Pringle was also president of the board
in 1993.

COMMERCE, CA – Daniel Kingston “King” Cable
passed away at his home in Lakewood in the early morning
hours of January 23, 2008, from complications of kidney failure. He was 89.
King, a member
of the Commerce
Industrial Council
Chamber of Commerce of the City
of Commerce since
1970 and its Board
of Directors since
1978, was involved in
a number of civic and
charitable organizations throughout Commerce and Bell Gardens, including the
Rio Hondo Rotary Club of Commerce and Bell Gardens, the
Rio Hondo Boys and Girls Club, the Los Angeles Rotary Club,
and the Boy Scouts of America.
A native and lifelong Californian, King was born in Long
Beach on September 30, 1918. Following high school, he enrolled at Compton City College, where he was an offensive and
defensive standout on the football team. King later transferred
to UCLA, where he earned a letter in crew, rowing stroke seat
for the varsity men’s eight. He served as president of the Delta
Tau Delta house and the UCLA inter-fraternity council.
It was at UCLA that King met his future wife, Barbara
Curtiss White. King graduated from UCLA in the spring of
1941 with a degree in business administration, and he and
Barbara were married a year later. During World War II he
was commissioned as an officer in the Army Air Corps, serving as a navigation instructor.
Following the war, he earned masters’ degrees in business
administration and economics from USC and worked for the
family business, Alert Lumber and Mill Co. King also oversaw
lumber mill operations in northern and southern California,
finding time for a little gold mining and helping to establish
the ski area at Snow Summit in the City of Big Bear. Later,
he would start and manage his own thriving steel company,
Angeles Metal Systems, in the City of Commerce. He and
Barbara settled in Lakewood and raised their three children.
A man large in spirit as well as stature, King lived a life
not easily reducible to words. While always an outsized personality and driven businessman, he was also a thoughtful and
gentle man devoted to his family and to a life of the mind and
spirit. King combined a keen mind and wicked sense of humor with charisma and great personal warmth and affection
for those around him. He was an avid aviator, skier, athlete,
traveler, and philanthropist. He read, practiced, discussed,
and debated history, political science, literature, philosophy,
and theology. Among other pursuits, King wrote poetry, studied Zen Buddhism, and obtained a brown belt in judo. He
was a longtime UCLA football season ticket holder, spending
many a Saturday afternoon at the Rose Bowl pulling for a Bruins victory. He also enjoyed ham radio, conversing with other
radio operators around the world and serving as a volunteer
for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department disaster communications service program.
A man large in spirit
as well as stature, King lived a life
not easily reducible to words.
King leaves behind his loving wife, Barbara, and their
three children, Kathy, Doug, and Courtney, eight grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. “Mr. Cable left us with
an exemplary legacy of a full life lived thoroughly and well,
and of the tremendous love and affection he shared with all
who were fortunate enough to know him,” said Chamber Executive Director Eddie D. Tafoya. “His devotion to our community will forever resonate as a positive indicator and inspiration for all. He will be greatly missed, and always cherished,”
added Tafoya.

COMMERCE CASINO CELEBRATES 25 YEARS
THROUGH THE EYES OF ITS EMPLOYEES
“Working for Commerce Casino
is not just a job. It’s an adventure!”
says Hermisto Villena, a Floorperson
(gaming supervisor) who has been
with the company since its opening in
August, 1983.
He is but one of more than two dozen
Commerce Casino employees who were
there at its birth, and watched the casino
grow and change dramatically over those
25 years. When it opened, it was the largest casino in Southern California, debuting
with 80,000 square feet, 100 game tables
and 500 employees. Today, the Commerce Casino complex, which includes the
Crowne Plaza Hotel, has 238,040 square
feet (91,694 of that is for gaming), 243
gaming tables and 2,800 employees. It
pumps $14 million into the City of Commerce tax base. And as the world’s largest poker room, it is revered globally as a
Mecca of poker.
The casino that many of the long-time
veteran’s remember was intimate by comparison, with the Asian Games area and
poker tables clustered in one room. Today, the Asian gaming sector alone covers
67,900 square feet. Most 25-year employees remark on the haze of cigarette smoke
that hung over the room, whereas the
Commerce Casino of today is smoke-free.
“In the early years our casino was
small, having no more than 100 round
tables for lowball and 5-card draw poker
games,» remembers Villena, who started as
a dealer before being promoted for Floorperson. ”The players were dealers themselves.”
Recalls Ingrid Roseman, a dealer who
has since risen to Shift Manager, «In those
days, the money was collected by the chip
girls, who also served the food!” Commerce
Casino now serves more than 6,000 meals
a day on the casino floor and in its multiple
dining venues, including the Eden Restaurant and Arena Sports Bar. The serving

For Hector Reza, it’s the Western
theme when the casino first opened its
doors that stands out. “I remember the
names like ‘The Waterhole’ for the bar,
and ‘The Chuckwagon’ for the cafeteria,”
says Reza.
Powerful Frederic Remington
bronze statues of bucking broncos and
galloping cowboys graced the front
door for many years before the most
recent remodel erased most of the last
remnants of the Western theme. As the
casino grew and the hotel was added
in 2001 with its 200 well-appointed
deluxe guestrooms, a more cosmopolitan theme was in order. To reflect the
style of the grand hotels in Las Vegas,
Commerce Casino took on the look of
an elegant Assyrian palace. In the most
recent renovation completed in November, the décor was revitalized with fresh
new paint in the lovely casino palette
of purple, cornflower blue and gold,
against a cream background. Plush new
carpet has been installed throughout.
Extended play chairs, with comfortable backs and cushioned seats are now
in place at every table on both casino
levels. The second floor area, formerly
the hotel ballroom, has been converted
to permanent live gaming tables. And

tions to regional attractions, dinner reservations and more,
but it will also now be the central sign-up for table play.
Today, the employees look with pride at how the casino has
grown and matured, “It is so much bigger and more elegant,”
says Gloria Goh, a Senior Floorperson. “The casino attracts so
many more patrons.” Alma J. Hinton, a waitress who became
Administrative Assistant in the Food and Beverage department,
remarks on the transformation from “small local poker tournaments to televised World Poker Tour tournaments, attracting
players from around the globe.”
Adds Reza, who has advanced from security officer to Director of Housekeeping, and earned a degree in business management while working at Commerce Casino: “Growth has
brought stability and opened doors for better opportunities for
the all the employees.” Commerce, incidentally, was also the
first of the California casinos to offer employee benefits. Shift
Manager Roseman sees advancement in the quality of personnel: “The hotel and staff have improved, with women becoming more involved in the workings of the casino.”
When they reminisce about the old days, what most of the
long-time employs remember is the sense of companionship
that sprang from the shared experience. “It was like a family,”
notes William Rausa, a Tracking Dealer.
For many, that sense of community has continued throughout the years as they cite the employee picnic and holiday parties
as annual highlights, along with playing on Commerce-sponsored recreational sports teams. They point to the camaraderie
among employees as a real benefit in their lives. “The most special aspect of the 25th anniversary for me is sharing it with my
other friends who have also been here 25 years and meeting so
many other wonderful people who are now part of my life,” says
June Watts, a Dealer.
Their experiences at the casino have enriched the lives of
many an employee. Says Roseman, “It made me aware of many
different nationalities, cultures and religions of the staff and customers.” And most rewarding for Villena was “the ability to work
with the employees, customers and management of all levels.”
Many credit the casino with being a significant part in
their personal growth. Says Villena, “Working at Commerce
has made me more responsible, dependable and sensitive to our
human issues.”
Notes Goh, who came to the establishment as a 21-yearold, “I’m proud of myself as a single mom, raising two sons by
myself, and for being promoted among all my co-workers. I tell
myself and my co-workers that we are very lucky to work at
Commerce. Without a degree in college, where else would you
find such a well-paying job and such great benefits? I feel like it’s
my second home and the people here are like my family.”
As the casino embarks on its Silver Anniversary celebration, many of Commerce Casino’s employees justifiably acknowledge their sense of contribution to its long-term success.
Says Villena, “I am proud and honored to be apart of our
casino growth and legacy.”
