Chick: `I’m not going out defeated’

first_img“The clock has always been ticking, and now it’s a time bomb,” Chick said. “I do not want to leave City Hall as a frustrated person. I want to feel I was successful in the things that matter the most to me. I’m not going out defeated.” Chick said she’s trying to complete audits faster and has launched several repeat audits, including revisiting the Fire Department, the Department of Building and Safety, and L.A. Inc. In July, Chick re- leased an audit that charged that the Los Angeles Housing Department had lost millions of dollars by failing to ensure that borrowers comply with loan promises and by sometimes lending money to developers who have defaulted on previous city loans. In June she alleged that lax contract management by the Los Angeles transportation department has cost taxpayers at least $700,000 over the past decade and highlights potential citywide problems. By Kerry Cavanaugh STAFF WRITER With less than two years left in office, Los Angeles City Controller Laura Chick said Friday that she’s concerned that many of her office’s recommendations from previous audits of city agencies have not yet been enacted. And after eight years on the City Council and six years as controller, Chick said she’s tired of city leaders wringing their hands over the same problems – gangs, affordable housing, traffic – without coming up with long-term solutions. Chick said she’s also auditing construction of the new Los Angeles Police Department headquarters after an oversight committee found problems. The project was supposed to cost $300 million when it was approved in 2004, but the cost is $400 million and climbing. “The final end cost is still a work in progress,” she said. “I think the budget has changed many, many times and the project has changed many, many times.” Chick said she’s planning to audit the trash fee fund used to pay for police officers and the city’s risk management system. She’s also studying the use of civilians in some police department jobs, and how the city applies for and manages millions of dollars in annual grants. Termed out in 2009, Chick said she is pretty sure she won’t run for the City Council again – although she could seek a third, four-year term under a measure approved by voters last year. Asked whether she aspires to an even higher office, Chick said she would not run against Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Liverpool legend receiving treatment in hospital

first_img1 Former Liverpool manager Graeme Souness was taken into hospital on Friday.The 62-year-old, who also played with distinction for the Reds, is receiving treatment in a hospital in Bournemouth, close to his home in Poole, Dorset.No details of Souness’ condition were immediately available.The former midfielder won 54 caps for Scotland during a playing career which also saw him win five league titles and three European Cups among his Liverpool honours and a Coppa Italia title with Sampdoria.As a manager, he led Rangers to three Scottish titles and four League Cups, before winning the 1992 FA Cup with the Reds.He went on to manage Turkish side Galatasaray – winning two domestic cup competitions – Blackburn, where he won the 2002 League Cup, Southampton, Benfica and Newcastle among others.He features in the Scottish national team, Rangers and English football Halls of Fame and in a 2006 poll of Liverpool supporters was named as the ninth most popular player in the club’s history.Since leaving the Magpies in 2006 he has worked as a media pundit for Sky Sports and Irish broadcaster RTE.Souness’ Sky Sports colleague Jeff Stelling opened the station’s Soccer Saturday broadcast with a message of support to Souness.“Souey, if you’re watching, get well very quickly,” said the presenter.

Disaster response device tested

first_imgPublic works, law enforcement, fire and Red Cross officials, among other emergency first-responders, can participate in the training program when it is set up, said Santoro. Police and fire representatives from Whittier, Montebello, Pasadena, El Monte, Monrovia, Arcadia, Alhambra, La Verne, Sierra Madre, Downey and Glendora attended Tuesday’s demonstration. Alhambra Fire Department Capt. John Cermak said the ADMS program will help agencies that rarely communicate to adjust to each other’s methods. “Police and fire agencies have little interaction in the field,” said Cermak. “Yet we’re both responding to emergency situations. We have uncommon platforms, and we speak differently.” Response was mixed to Tuesday’s virtual-disaster program. Some said their agencies already have sufficient disaster-preparedness training. Others said they believe the ADMS would be valuable. “This is one of the greatest things I’ve seen,” said Montebello police Chief Garry Couso-Vasquez. “9/11 woke us up. We need to practice to protect our residents.” Whittier police Capt. Kenton Rainey said the ADMS program is similar to training that Whittier is already offering its officers. “It’s the same concept as our shooting simulations,” said Rainey. “But ours is more hands-on.” The ADMS program can simulate structure fires, hazardous material leaks, multi-vehicle collisions, and other situations. Tuesday’s demonstration depicted a terrorist bomb attack at a mall. ADMS Director William Caballero Jr. led the demonstration, and reviewed the program after the interactive simulation. “The people (in the simulation) sitting up are injured, and the people lying down are dead,” he said. “Now there is an unknown agent – a gas. Are you\ going to go further to investigate? Or are you going to pull out?” sandy.mazza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WHITTIER – Representatives from county law enforcement and fire agencies Tuesday participated in mock mayhem in a mall to demonstrate something called an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator. The program looks like a video game, and uses virtual reality technology to train emergency first-responders. Rio Hondo College tested the ADMS this week, and will try out other similar training programs before it purchases one, said Joe Santoro, dean of the Administration of Justice, Corrections, and Fire Science academies. The college hopes to make the purchase, which will be the beginning of the school’s Homeland Security Training Institute, within a year.

Report to an explosion in the food court,” the incident commander said into a radio. A law enforcement official responded: “We have multiple people down, and a large dark cloud. It’s unknown what it is.” “The idea is to bring first-responders from all over and talk about their basic needs,” said Santoro. “Now, there is very little – if any – hands-on training for terrorism.” The ADMS program would cost the college about $300,000, and be partially paid for with a government appropriation to the Department of Justice Community-Oriented Policing technology program of $150,000. last_img read more

Seaman calls for Arsenal to drop Cech for Europa League final amid Chelsea reports

first_img 2 David Seaman believes Arsenal should drop Petr Cech for the Europa League final against Chelsea, amid reports the veteran goalkeeper will return to Stamford Bridge this summer.Cech, who made over 400 appearances in 11 seasons for the Blues, has described the Arsenal vs Chelsea final as the ‘perfect end’ to his playing career, having confirmed earlier this season he will hang up his gloves this summer. Leno has become Arsenal’s No.1 following his arrival last summer Petr Cech will retire at the end of the season after a glittering career in the Premier League He told Wednesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I know Cech has played all the games but in a final like that, especially against Chelsea…“Arsenal need to win this game to get into the Champions League. It’s a huge game and worth millions to the club.“So, for me, you play your strongest team and if that means Leno plays then that’s what I would do.“I know Arsene Wenger did it with me. Richard Wright played all the FA Cup games and then played me in the final.” Getty center_img The 37-year-old has played the majority of the Gunners’ European games this season, despite Bernd Leno taking his place as the club’s regular number one this term.But it is unclear if he will keep his place for the final in Baku, with manager Unai Emery keeping his options open ahead of the all-English European clash.Recent rumours that Cech will move back to London rivals Chelsea this summer to become their new sporting director have also cast doubt on his place in the side.And club legend Seaman insists the Gunners must field their strongest possible XI against the Blues, meaning Leno should start the game.

How Liverpool could have lined-up if they had signed Shearer in 2003

I distinctly remember you being inches away from signing for Liverpool after Sir Bobby Robson put you on the bench. You tried everything to get out. https://t.co/ZQBrlojeEv— michael owen (@themichaelowen) September 3, 2019Liverpool legend, and Gerard Houllier’s assistant at the time, Phil Thompson said in 2005 at how they tried to sign the Newcastle star.He told the Liverpool Echo: “We needed an immediate impact at the start of that 2003/04 season and one player who came to our attention was the opposite of our two young hopefuls Florent Sinama-Pongolle and Anthony Le Tall-ec.“He was a tried and trusted superstar, one of the great players in the game and a man whose stature could give everyone a lift – on and off the pitch. His name was Alan Shearer.“Of course, Alan was still a god at Newcastle, but he had not signed his new contract. Gerard (Houllier) came to me and said: ‘Do you fancy Alan Shearer?’ I said ‘Of course!’ although I felt there was little or no chance of securing his services because of his ties to the North East. stalemate rookie error deals Man United transfer news live: Haaland ‘wants a change’, two players off in January Getty Images – Getty Liverpool transfer news live: Star man wanted by Real Madrid, Mbappe latest and more Spurs investigation into alleged racial abuse of Rudiger is so far ‘inconclusive’ Buildlineup.com Michael Owen said he did not want to join Newcastle How Liverpool could have lined-up in a 5-3-2 6 Yes Michael, we thought that also, whilst on £120k a week….. @nufc https://t.co/bzzEDdjdN1 pic.twitter.com/I4CdsQcKKr— Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) September 3, 2019He said: “Not sure you are as loyal to Newcastle as you make out mate. I distinctly remember you being inches away from signing for Liverpool after Sir Bobby Robson put you on the bench.

The boss said that he had this feeling that Alan would come to Anfield.“Contact was made, although Newcastle were obviously not keen to let him go.“We said we would like to be kept informed, aware that it would be a major coup to capture someone of Shearer’s stature. We also knew that it would be a massive negotiation, but early indications were that he would come.

Dundee Utd need to invest to win promotion says McKinnon

first_imgRay McKinnon has warned Dundee United must invest in new players if they are to complete their target of winning the Championship next season.The Tannadice club lost their fight for promotion by falling 1-0 to Hamilton Accies in the Premiership play-off second leg on Sunday. It was the side’s sixth game in 20 days and McKinnon said the players were struggling with the demanding schedule.He now wants to put money into his squad to guarantee United win automatic promotion this time next year instead of going through the gruelling play-offs again. “We’ll look at that next week,” he said. “We’ll see. We’ll see. I’ll have to speak to the powers that be and see how the finances are.” “We go again in the summer, I’ll sit down with the chairman and we’ll take it from there. We want to improve the squad, that is a must. “I’ve used the same team for the last eight games and it was a game too far. It’s an absolute must that we invest in the squad. We were light today and that cost us.”last_img read more

Matt Phillips: I can grow into Scotland striker role

first_img“I really enjoyed it tonight playing up front with James Forrest.”Phillips said there was real competition for a place in Alex McLeish’s team as the new manager shaped his side but his contribution to the win could stand him in good stead for the future.“Hopefully [that’s a marker] but everyone in the dressing room wants to impress the new manager and they want to play for Scotland,” he said. “That’s the main thing. “There’s been a good buzz about the camp in the last ten days. Matt Phillips bagged his first goal in a Scotland jersey and says he can grow into the striker’s role for the nation.The West Bromwich Albion winger started the friendly against Hungary as part of a forward pairing with James Forrest and despite being in an unfamiliar role, got on the end of Ryan Fraser’s cross to score the only goal of the game in Budapest.He said pre-match training had helped to prepare him to play as a central forward and he could develop further.“It was good,” he said. “Throughout the camp we’ve done a lot of work on it and it’s a position I feel I can grow into. “It’s been massive. With a new group of players it’s all about gelling and knowing each others’ game. It’s definitely worthwhile and there’s a lot of positives to take from it.”Reflecting on his first international goal, he said he was over the moon to have been on the scoresheet but that was only one of the plus points from the games.“Personally, it’s a very proud moment for me and my family,” he said.“But also, for the team tonight, to get the win in the manager’s second game and when there’s been a lot of new caps over the two games, we’re delighted.“We can take the positives from both games and look forward to the next camp.”last_img read more
