The fundraiser will feature tattoo artists whose schedules are normally booked a year in advance, and perhaps even celebrity guests. Garcia said he is hoping for a turnout of 100-200 people. Garcia said he grew up in a neighborhood where much of his and Hicks’ shared family resided, and even lived with her for a while. She often spent time in the area near Shamrock, seeing shows at the Whisky a Go-Go and making friends in the area, Garcia said. “If they needed somewhere to stay for a while or if they were going through a tough time to get back on their feet, she worked at a hospital so she could get them help and connections,” Garcia said. Garcia works at Shamrock, and several of Hicks’ other nephews have been tattooed there. Hicks’ death has inspired donations from the Pico Rivera City Council, from Supervisor Gloria Molina and from local businesses.

Now a fundraiser in the woman’s honor will leave indelible marks on the bodies of participants at Mark Mahoney’s Shamrock Social Club, a tattoo shop in North Hollywood. “I think this is something she would have went to if it was someone down the street with the same type of circumstances,” Hicks’ nephew, Peter Garcia, said. “She would try to help out as much as she could.” The fundraiser will take place on Sunday, when several tattoo artists from Shamrock will clear their schedules to take walk-ins, with all proceeds going to the Maria Hicks Scholarship Fund.
By Scott Wolf Staff Writer As expected, quarterback John David Booty will start for USC against Oregon State. “He’s ready to play,” Coach Pete Carroll said. “I hope a couple weeks off haven’t thrown him out of kilter.” Although many USC fans yearn for the days when offensive coordinator Norm Chow called the plays, Carroll said his original choice for the job was California coach Jeff Tedford. Carroll said he contacted Tedford after getting hired at USC, but was turned down. “Then he went to Cal,” Carroll said. When Teford passed on the job, Carroll immediately turned to Chow, who went on to stay at USC for four memorable seasons. Carroll said he called Chow the first day he was hired at USC. Cornerback U.? USC is ranked 96th in the nation in interceptions, a statistic that rankles the Trojans and especially Carroll, who originally wanted his defenses to be known as Cornerback U. Safety Taylor Mays said he the Trojans’ zone coverages don’t really allow for a lot of interception opportunities. “I haven’t seen a lot of plays where I could say I should have had the ball,” Mays said. “We can’t go out of our way to make these plays.” Baker out Carroll said offensive tackle Sam Baker would not play against Oregon State. Baker would not rule out playing, but Carroll said he did not think it would happen. Freshman Butch Lewis will start again at left tackle. Offensive guard Chilo Rachal did not practice because of a tightness in a calf. Rachal is expected to play. “The trainers were worried about it and wanted to give him an extra day to rest,” Carroll said. Upon further review Carroll spoke with Pacific-10 Conference supervisor of officials David Cutaia again Thursday about the lack of penalties called against USC’s opponents, but once again there was no consensus on the reason. Carroll said he would understand if it were a one-year phenomenon but said it’s happened the past four seasons. Cutaia officiated last year’s USC-Arizona game when the Wildcats committed more penalties than the Trojans.

California Attorney General Jerry Brown on Monday sued 20 toy makers and stores – including Mattel and Toys “R” Us – accusing them of knowingly manufacturing or selling toys with illegal and dangerous levels of lead. The news follows major recalls of toys, lunchboxes, children’s jewelry and other goods in the last year by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in Washington. And it comes just as consumers start gearing up for the holiday shopping season. Officials with Mattel, the chief defendant in the suit, said the action was expected and predicted it would lead to more stringent safety standards. Because of the sheer size of the California market, lawsuits and regulations tend to have national repercussions. Brown filed the lawsuit, along with Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, at the Alameda County Superior Court. It focuses on safety improvements but also seeks financial penalties. “Mattel expected this development and believes that the attorney general’s assumption of this case will be beneficial to all parties,” the company said in a statement. “The use of paint with impermissable levels of lead by certain subcontractors was a clear violation of the company’s quality and safety standards.” Under Proposition 65 – known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 – businesses cannot expose individuals to hazardous chemicals without posting a clear warning. Under that law, 75 percent of the punitive damages would go to the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, the agency that administers Proposition 65. The rest would go to the Attorney General’s Office. “We have no expectation or goal” on how much money the companies might have to pay, said Tim Sullivan, a deputy attorney general. “We’re doing this to stop it from happening again. Penalties are part of the deterrent.” Among the companies named in the lawsuit are Mattel, Fisher-Price, Toys “R” Us, Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, KB Toys, Costco Wholesale, Eveready Battery Company, Kmart and Marvel Entertainment. Some companies are in confidential settlement negotiations – “and some are not,” Sullivan said. The attorney general’s office could settle separately with each company. Previous attorneys general have negotiated settlements to remove lead in candy, soda bottles, jewelry and other consumer products. Health advocates said they hope the lawsuit leads to better controls over what toys fall in the hands of children. “It could result in mandatory testing or mandatory monitoring requirements,” said National Health Law attorney Manju Kulkarni, who specializes in lead paint issues. “Ultimately, these companies are responsible. They stand to gain most when the toys do well, so in cases like this, they can lose the most in reputation and profits.” The lawsuit coincides with another organization’s call for Congress to ban lead in children’s toys altogether and to increase funding for the Consumer Product Safety commission. CALPIRG, a consumer advocacy group, is releasing its 22nd annual toy safety report today. “The discovery of lead is a serious health threat and it’s got to be addressed,” said Pedro Morillas, CALPIRG’s legislative advocate. “This lawsuit will hold companies accountable.” Brown launched his investigation into toy manufacturers and retailers after the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued recall notices for toys exceeding federal lead limits. Beginning with the recall of 1.5 million Thomas the Tank Engine toys in June, 46 toy products have been recalled for excessive levels of lead – totaling approximately 6 million toys this year. After the national recall, several private health advocacy groups alerted the attorney general’s office that they intended to sue. The attorney general, who has the option to take over these lawsuits or allow the complaints to continue independently, decided to take on the lawsuits.

You’re all set! “Companies must take every reasonable step to assure that the products they handle are safe for children and their families and fully comply with the laws of California,” Brown said in a statement. “Despite the lengthening global supply chain, every company that does business in this state must follow the law and protect consumers from lead and other toxic materials.” The lawsuit contends that companies knowingly exposed individuals to lead and did not provide warnings about the risks. Lead is known to cause cancer and reproductive harm, as well as other effects, such as learning disabilities in children. The lawsuit seeks to force manufacturers and retailers to adopt procedures for inspecting products to make sure they are safe. There is a statutory penalty of up to $2,500 for each item sold, officials said, though it is unlikely to reach that level. Los Angeles-based toy giant Mattel said the attorney general’s involvement would help steer the toy industry toward stronger safety standards.
