Red light camera operation begins

first_imgDuring the grace period, warning notices are mailed to car owners. Beginning June 1, citations will be issued. The red light system includes a digital camera and video camera that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week on a 12-second loop. The Police Department has access to the streaming video. The system is operated by Redflex Traffic Systems, which receives a portion of the revenue from citations. The city receives about $140 per citation, while the state and county also receive shares. Red light cameras already are in place at Montebello and Paramount boulevards and at Montebello and Beverly boulevards. They were installed in 2003.

MONTEBELLO – As of Monday, drivers who run a red light at the Montebello and Paramount boulevards intersection will get a $381 citation in the mail. Enforcement of a new red light camera program began at 6a.m. at the intersection, following a two-month grace period in which violators received warnings, said retired Montebello Police Department Sgt. Craig Powers, who is charge of the program. “The intersection is one of the top three intersections that studies show has the highest rates of accidents,” he said. The other two other intersections, Garfield Avenue at Via Campo Avenue and Washington Boulevard at Greenwood Avenue, also now have red-light cameras, and a monthlong warning notice period began Monday for those locations, police said. last_img read more

Highland runner states her case

first_imgWALNUT – The moments following the Southern Section Div. I girls’ cross-country finals on Saturday were filled with uncertainty for Highland High’s Caitlin Fitzgerald and coach John Johnston. Fitzgerald finished 10th with a time of 18 minutes, 24 seconds on the 2.91-mile Mt. San Antonio College course, but wouldn’t know if she qualified for this Saturday’s state meet until the official results were published. The top five runners not on an advancing team earn an individual berth at Woodward Park in Fresno, granted they finish in the top 20. Fitzgerald has had close misses before. She missed advancing to last year’s section final by one spot. But this time, she earned the final individual state-meet berth. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Fitzgerald wasn’t the only Highland runner at Mt. SAC on Saturday, although she was the only one racing. Four members of the Bulldogs boys’ team painted their chests in Highland’s scarlet and yellow and spelled out “F-I-T-Z.” Other Highland runners painted shirts to cheer on Fitzgerald. “Guess we’re going to need some more paint,” one runner remarked when they found out Fitzgerald would run at the state meet. Three-time Golden League champion Brienna Morris, fifth at the state meet as a freshman, failed to advance to that race for the second consecutive year. The Quartz Hill junior finished 15th in the section final with a time of 18:49. Gradual improvement: Andrea Gutierrez was blunt about the state of the 2002 Paraclete cross-country team. “We (stunk), but then we got Ken (Lemus),” she said. “We’ve gotten a little bit better each year.” Lemus coached the Spirits to the Southern Section finals in 2003 and the state meet the next year. They’ll run at state again on Saturday after finishing third in last Saturday’s Southern Section Div. IV final. The Spirits are confident they can improve on last year’s sixth-place finish at Woodward Park. They entered the 2004 race unranked, but are No. 6 in Div. IV statewide this year. The Southern Section final was the last race at Mt. SAC for Gutierrez, the only senior in Paraclete’s top seven. She was only slightly sentimental when she realized that fact. Relief seemed to be the overwhelming emotion in her voice. Not only is Mt. SAC, which hosts an annual invitational and all section postseason meets, a very demanding course, but the Spirits had to leave campus at 5 a.m. Saturday to arrive on time. Young leader: Last year, Alexis Velasquez’s Paraclete teammates helped pull her through the Southern Section final. This year, she set the pace. Velasquez finished 12th with a time of 19:30 on the 2.91-mile course. The sophomore was eight seconds ahead of freshman Haley Kennedy; Alpha League champion Kaitlin Huerta finished in 19:42. “I think all the invitationals we run helped teach me to pace myself,’ Velasquez said. She also led the team with a second-place finish in its race at the Mt. SAC Invitational in October. Loosen up: The Paraclete boys’ team will also run at Woodward Park on Saturday. It entered the Southern Section Div. IV final as the fourth-ranked team, but finished seventh. The Spirits were only 12 points away from not advancing to state. “(Our finish) was OK, but it’s not what we wanted,” Lemus said. “You could see them get tense. You could see it in their shoulders. I tell them in practice to relax. You’re running with your best friends, what do you have to worry about? Forget about the other teams.” Sophomore Edwin Flores, the Alpha League individual champion, led Paraclete with a 10th-place finish in 16:28. So close: Rosamond’s Melissa Olmos missed advancing to the state meet by one second. She finished 14th in the Southern Section Div. IV final with a time of 19:32. La Salle of Pasadena’s Margaret Sitker finished 13th in 19:31 to grab the fifth and final spot.

Let’s get on with it …

first_imgKhanyi MagubaneFind out more about using materialThe elections have come and gone, and we now call Jacob Zuma Mr President.I am now, officially, living under the leadership of a man who came under intense pressure from a public trial and a test of character at the hand of South African media and civil society, most recently through a new communication medium – blogs.I find myself obsessively following the blogs of online news publications, so as to tap into the mindset of South Africans.The blog’s discussions are fascinating, not least because of the way users, with their identities hidden, unleash torrents of abuse against each other. With racial slurs and put-downs, users try to out-do each other with their profound insights into politics and the functions of government.Some comments are witty and quite clever, but for the most part I have found the general sentiment coming out of blogs is a desperate need for healing.The blogs have an uncanny way of revealing unresolved resentment that many still harbour after 15 years of democracy. And this resentment isn’t going away by itself.As toxic as they may be, these blogs may be just what we need. They allow many South Africans to get their negativity out of their systems and into the open, hopefully making space for something geared towards a positive outlook on this country.South Africans are forgetting that we actually have a stable country right now, in the midst of a global recession. And now we have a new president, whether we like him or not, let’s just get on with it – let’s resolve the serious issues we have as a people.Recently, the Gauteng provincial government narrowly managed to avert what would have been South Africa’s biggest industrial action to date, with about 54 000 municipal workers having planned a solidarity strike in support of bus drivers, who had been striking for six weeks.The doctors and nurse’s strike, which still needs to be resolved, involves similarly routine issues: increased wages and better working conditions.These are things we all expect from our jobs. And they are entrenched in Section 10 of the constitutional Bill of Rights: “Everyone has inherent dignity and the right to have their dignity respected and protected.”This new strike season can’t come as a shock to the new government. South Africans voted to improve their lives and, when this doesn’t happen, they take to the streets to protest.   The sooner we get on with the business of running the country, the better chance we have of showing the world what we are capable of – performing miracles where none are expected.At this time, when sceptics are predicting that the country will fall apart, South Africans must work to prove them wrong.The time to tear each other up is certainly not now, nor do I ever foresee a time that will be right for destructive engagement, which doesn’t further the collective cause of each and every South African.As South Africans we want to be safe in our homes, on the streets and in our cars. We want job security, an efficient health system, and a quality education for our children. We want a place we can call home, that’s not leaking when it rains, and that’s not a furnace when it’s hot and a mortuary when it’s cold.The government is under pressure to deliver on its promises. But we can play a part by not only maintaining that pressure, but also by simply getting on with the work that needs to be done.Khanyi Magubane is a journalist, published poet, radio broadcaster and fiction writer.

SA celebrates as World Cup wraps up

first_img MediaClubSouthAfrica 12 July 2010 As Spain lifted the 2010 Fifa World Cup on the chilly evening of 11 July, South Africans across the country were filled with a sense of pride in a spectacle well hosted. While Soweto’s Soccer City stadium, where Spain beat the Netherlands 1-0, was packed to capacity, thousands of other fans flocked to public viewing areas elsewhere in Johannesburg to witness history being made in their own backyard. Free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service. Celebrations after the match at Innes Free Fifa Fan Fest in Sandton, where I watched the match, had a rich South African flavour, with music, dance and much vuvuzela-trumpeting. With such a distinct local vibe, you could be forgiven for thinking that Bafana Bafana had beaten the Netherlands in that final. “The World Cup has been a great success,” said Sifiso Mazibuko from Soweto. “People who expected it to go badly have been proven wrong. Even though Bafana lost in the first round, we proved … that we can host a world-class event. “There are many events, like the Olympics, that South Africa can now host,” he added. The final match buzz could be felt in the country from the time Germany lost to Spain in the semifinals, days before the 11 July finale. A colourful carnival kicked off on the streets of Soweto on 9 July, with about 500 entertainers showing off their skills along a 5km stretch from Maponya Mall to Kliptown Square. These festivities helped set the mood for a thrilling countdown to the final match and closing ceremony. Vincent Nkosi gathered with his family in Pimville, Soweto, to witness the impressive display on the streets. He later commented that the carnival’s success reflected how well World Cup-related events were managed. “It is part of a package that shows that everything has been well organised. Organisation of the World Cup was really up to scratch,” he said.African hospitality Nkosi also spoke about the tourism boom in the township during the tournament: “I’ve been seeing many tourists everyday here in Soweto. It was nice hype.” The noted decrease in crime and hospitality shown to World Cup visitors swelled Nkosi’s pride in Africa’s first World Cup. “It’s been a success and enjoyable, especially the safety and accommodating our visitors … We’ve shown good courtesy to our visitors.” To minimise crime during the tournament, government deployed 31 000 local police officers and called on international security agencies, including Interpol, for back-up. Christian Jutte, from Denmark, is one of the visitors who felt safe and welcome here, although he is no stranger to the country, as his wife is originally from Soweto. Speaking from Kliptown Square during the carnival, he said: “feels like home in South Africa … I feel safe. “I now hope that investors will come and see that anything is possible in South Africa,” he added.‘Putting the country first’ President Jacob Zuma announced on 10 July that government will soon launch a programme to thank South Africans for their impressive World Cup spirit. “South Africans are the stars and champions of this tournament,” Zuma said in a statement. “We extend a special thank you to South Africans for the passion and excitement that has kept the tournament alive for the past weeks. We thank you for putting the country first,” he added.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — November 17, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 11-17-17We should stay dry for the entire day today over the state. Warmer air will try to emerge this afternoon as south winds start to develop. Scattered showers begin after sunset, and will intensify from the midnight hour through the day Saturday. We think precipitation will ultimately linger through the first half of Sunday, and rains can end as sloppy wet snow over the northern half of the state. We won’t even rule out some minor accumulations in NE OH, although this is not going to be a big deal. We turn much colder on Sunday behind the frontal passage. We are increasing the top end of our forecast just a bit, putting rain totals at .25”-2” over 100% of the state from tonight through about early afternoon Sunday. However, we do not think the 2 inch rain totals will be as widespread as this model map suggests. We think 1”-1.25” rain totals are the better call for widespread heavy rains. The map shows cumulative precipitation for this event through Sunday morning.Dry for Monday through next Saturday. Temperatures will yo-yo significantly through that dry period. Cold air holds for Monday, but we see temperatures quickly moderating on Tuesday to near and slightly above normal levels. That will be short lived, as cold air returns for Wednesday and most of Thursday. We are making a tweak to the temperature forecast from there, though, because we see temps starting to warm Thursday (Thanksgiving) evening and will they will climb to above normal levels to finish the week and weekend. The cold Canadian air that was projected to hold through the holiday weekend has weakened and will be pushed back farther north.Scattered showers are in for next Sunday, the 26th. We see a few hundredths to .3” rain totals over 70% of the state.In the extended period, we continue to see mostly dry weather for the 27th through the 30th. Our next frontal boundary starts to impact the state around the 1st of December. Precipitation totals remain unimpressive, so we will stay at .25” or less.last_img read more

OpenFeints Ups Stakes & Heads for Android Country

Assuming the world will have both iOS and Android, OpenFeint will remain interesting to developers and users as the only multi-playform SDK and community.”OpenFeint also closed a $4 million investment from The9, an Chinese online game company, this week. Previous investment included last October’s investment by Japan’s DeNA. AuroraFeint‘s OpenFeint was a pioneering platform for providing developers with the tools to create social gaming options on the iPhone. Then Apple decided to create its own Game Center. Then, as now, the company’s insists its still playing nice with Apple. But the fact is, OpenFeint has decided to take its 9,200 developers and over 2,200 games over to Android. “To date, Google has only made small gains in gaming with the acquisition of AdScape in 2007 and the launch of flash games thanks to a partnership with Mochi Media in 2008. OpenFeint for Android will provide more than just an SDK code but a new game discovery and payment solution.”Coming along for the ride are game publishers Astraware, Digital Chocolate, Glu Mobile and Hudson Soft, as well as indie studios like Distinct Dev, ustwo, Pik Pok and RocketCat Games.Certainly the OpenFeint developer community, whose efforts on the iOS have attracted 28 million users, is a long stride forward. What If? The question seems obvious, however.
