Chief Wells, Mr. Pickens and Chief Sanchez are well known for their commitment to young people and MPYD is grateful to each of these men for taking time to share their wisdom during our weeklong series on leadership,” stated Cameron Turner, who coordinates MPYD’s Lunch With the Future calendar.Pasadena Fire Chief Calvin Wells (right) and John Muir High School Principal Timothy Sippel (left) greet MPYD students Carlos Vasquez and Jordan Howard after the chief’s presentation on leadership.Sharing anecdotes from his 36-year fire service career as well and his long history as a youth baseball coach, Pasadena Fire Chief Wells described several characteristics of effective leadership including accountability, integrity, communication, and regarding leadership as service to others.“For me it’s been about a calling. That is my sense of duty,” Wells said of his role as fire chief. “We run about sixteen thousand calls a day and I have to make sure that every time we answer that call, that the person answering that call does it in such a way that is caring, competent and compassionate to everybody they touch.”Ricky Pickens (center) is joined by longtime MPYD mentor Philip Holland (right) and MPYD staff member Cameron Turner (left).Police Chief Sanchez asked students to describe the kind of leader they would follow. MPYD members responded by citing characteristics such as integrity, honesty, trustworthiness and the ability to listen to your team. Referencing the domestic violence case involving former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice, Sanchez said that men demonstrate leadership by responding calmly to emotionally heated situations and by respecting women. “I wonder how you treat women. If you’re respectful to them or if you comment under your breath about what they wear or how they conduct themselves. Men tend to do those kinds of things. (But if you do that) you’re eroding, you’re wearing away your own character,” Sanchez told the MPYD students.Pasadena Fire Chief Calvin Wells (Center), John Muir High School Principal Timothy Sippel (Right) and Executive Director Greg Middleton (Left)Ricky Pickens, Director of Prevention and Intervention Services at the Flintridge Center, shared insights from his more than 20 years of working closely with street gangs in and around Pasadena. Explaining how he avoided criminal life despite having several gang affiliated family members, Pickens urged the MPYD youth, “Be your own self. That means doing the right thing when nobody else is looking. Be above mediocrity. Be above the image of the average African-American and Latino high school student. When they say you can’t get A’s and B’s in classes, you can do it!”MPYD presents speakers from a broad range of career fields and life experiences through its Lunch With the Future series. The events take place on the Muir campus every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday during the school lunch period.Upcoming Lunch With the Future speakers include former PCC and UNLV football coach Harvey Hyde, Pasadena Deputy Police Chief Darryl Qualls, Pasadena City Councilmembers John J. Kennedy and Victor M. Gordo, aerospace engineer Luis Dominguez, entrepreneur Lonzie Johnson, filmmaker Flavio Morales and many more. On October 21, MPYD will host a special Lunch With the Future Roundtable with PUSD Superintendent Dr. Brian McDonald, PUSD Board President Scott Phelps and PUSD Board Member Tyron Hampton.For further information on MPYD or to become a volunteer or donor please contact Executive Director Greg Middleton at (626) 396-5600 ext 82510.

FEMA Increases Funding to Reimburse Area Towns

first_imgBy John BurtonArea towns hit by Super Storm Sandy and still working to return to normal are going to get a little extra federal help.The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) this week announced it is increasing the amount it will approve for reimbursement to communities for what they have spent on recovery costs from the October storm from 75 percent to 90 percent.The mayors of towns that will be getting the funds are appreciative of the extra help.“We’re very pleased,’ said Susan Howard, mayor of Monmouth Beach, one of the shore communities still working to rebuild. “It’s going to make it easier to proceed with the recovery now that our contribution will be 10 percent.”At the request of Gov. Chris Christie, President Barack Obama this week authorized the increase in the federal cost sharing, according to Maria Pardon, a FEMA spokesperson.Under federal disaster aid guidelines, when needs meet or exceed a set amount per resident – currently set at $133 per person – the president has the authority to increase the reimbursement to the 90 percent threshold, Pardon said.The money, earmarked for state and local government and some private not-for-profits, is to offset the cost of emergency expenses, debris removal and infrastructure repairs. The remaining 10 percent will become the responsibility of the state, county and local or private entities, according to FEMA.“It’ll be happily received by all the towns, especially Highlands,” said Highlands Mayor Frank Nolan, as his town along the Bayshore was one of those significantly damaged by the storm.Recovery work has been done on a “pay as you go” plan, with local governments then submitting the bills to the federal government, Nolan saidHighlands Borough Council initially bonded $2.5 million for immediate cleanup.“We’ve only done our most urgent items” so far in Monmouth Beach, as the town evaluates the costs and ways to pay for it, Howard said.With the additional reimbursement, “it’s going to allow us to go forward with our recovery plans with confidence of what the fiscal impact is,” Howard said.“We’ve been hoping all along that this event would go to a 90/10 reimbursement,” Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long said. Because its ratable base had been so dramatically impacted by storm damage, Sea Bright has been prioritizing its rebuilding project, “and in some cases pushing them off altogether,” as the town has tried to watch its pennies, Long said. “We’ve been looking at doing things year-by-year, instead of trying to get it all fixed at once.”With the extra reimbursement funds, a town working on a $1 million project will pay a $100,000 share of costs instead of $250,000. “That’s huge,” Long said, for a town where a penny on the tax rate equates to $44,700. The additional money could be applied to another necessary project.“It’s an issue of keeping property taxes under control,” Howard said.Highlands is looking at $10 million to $15 million worth of infrastructure repairs, with a tax base that has decreased by approximately 20 percent from storm damage.Nolan said his financial people have said the town is looking at taking about 10 years to fully recover.Sea Bright so far has identified about $10 million in infrastructure repair projects. “We’re still tabulating,” and the price tag is likely to go up, as officials look at its sewer system and seawall repairs and other projects being evaluated, Long said.So far FEMA has approved more than $556 million in Public Assistance grants for rebuilding communities, according to FEMA-provided information.last_img read more

MLA Bernier concerned about impact of ALR recommendations on oil and gas

first_imgBernier said that one of his chief concerns is the potential ramifications for the natural gas extraction industry due to the upcoming final investment decision from LNG Canada, which is anticipated to occur before the end of the year.“The last thing we need is to be raising more red flags that could stand in the way of building TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink pipeline,” he added. DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier says he’s concerned about some of the recommendations that were made to Agriculture Minister Lana Popham in an interim report by an advisory committee looking into revitalizing the Agricultural Land Commission and Agricultural Land Reserve, saying that those recommendations could have a negative impact on the Peace Region’s oil and gas industry.The committee’s interim report, released last Wednesday, identified 13 recommendations for legislative and regulatory change, as well as four recommendations for action to protect the ALR.The committee also identified 14 key issues that are still under consideration for its final report. Among the recommendations for action to protect the ALR, the committee made two recommendations to mitigate the impacts of oil and gas activity on agricultural lands.The committee recommended that a Deputy Minister-level multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional task force to develop a strategy focused on how a balance can be achieved between agriculture and oil and gas extraction, as well as for the ALC to have an increased presence in Northern B.C.“The Committee has previously noted that it is imperative there be a government-wide policy shift in identifying agricultural land and industry as a resource equivalent to other resources, and oil and gas is no exception,” reads the report. “It is essential an ‘agriculture-first’ approach be applied to the ALR in the Northeast.”The report goes on to say that, “The development of the energy sector has exceeded the capacity of the current regulatory environment to protect farmland. The impacts of oil and gas extraction on agricultural land and farm businesses in Northeast B.C. have reached a breaking point. Cumulative impacts over the last decade from accelerating oil and gas development have rendered portions of agricultural lands unusable and others difficult to farm. With continued changes in extraction and processing methods along with the pace and scale of development, these activities that were once considered temporary are no longer. Instead they are permanent industrial sites built on farmland and next to farm communities.”However, Bernier says that the committee’s report contains recommendations that would seek to undo changes that were made by the previous Liberal government in 2014 which he says gives farmers with ALR land more flexibility.“For over fifty years both industries have operated side by side in harmony and without major incident,” said Bernier. “Four years ago the previous government divided the ALR into two separate zones in order to recognize regional differences and give farmers more opportunities to make money on their land. The Minister of Agriculture’s Advisory Committee for Revitalizing the ALR wants to change all that, and quite a bit more.”last_img read more

For Mourinho Hazard has matured as a footballer

first_imgAfter Eden Hazard’s honest comments about failing Jose Mourinho during their time at Chelsea, the Portuguese manager responded accordingly.This past week there was a statement Eden Hazard made about Jose Mourinho that surprised everyone, he accepted his part of responsibility when the Portuguese manager was sacked and revealed he apologized to the boss after it happened.Sometimes we don’t realize how much influence the best players can have in their squads, when they are not at their top form it shows in the team’s performance and that is exactly what happened with Eden Hazard.During that season after Jose came back to win the Premier League on his second spell, Hazard confessed that the players asked the manager for more vacation time and he returned in very poor shape.This affected the squad’s performance because Hazard is the top player in Chelsea. Now that some time has passed, the Belgian playmaker understands that he was also to blame for the team’s bad situation and he regretted not playing under Jose Mourinho for a longer period of time.Eden even hinted that he would love working under the Portuguese manager again, something that may or may not be possible in the future. Hopefully in a different league like Spain, for example.JOSE AND HAZARD TO REUNITE AT REAL⁉Could Jose Mourinho and Eden Hazard be set for a surprise reunion at Real Madrid, in light of the player’s comments this week? https://t.co/ddEgkXVDm8 pic.twitter.com/OOeA1PCKEr— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) October 14, 2018But after Hazard’s comments last week, it was Jose Mourinho’s time to respond and he did it in style with what can arguably be considered high praise between two legends of the game.The Red Devils’ boss recently spoke to Sky Sports ahead of Manchester United’s visit to Stamford Bridge and Jose spoke about the threat that Hazard poses to his players, but he also referred to those comments.“If I only think about Eden, we are in trouble. It’s Eden, It’s Willian, it’s [N’Golo] Kante. It’s really hard to play against a team and focus on one man if that special man is surrounded by special players,” said Mourinho about stopping Hazard this Saturday.“He is a good kid. He was a good kid in my time and now he is a good man, three or four years more maturity he was a kid and now is a man,” added Mourinho about Hazard’s recent comments.“I think he knows how good he is, I think he knows how much he can influence the destiny of his team in the course of a season.”“In my first season he was voted the best player in the Premier League and the team was champion. In my second season he was not very good, but we were not very good.”Daniel Fark, Norwich City, Premier LeagueDaniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“Then Antonio comes, he was the best player in the Premier League and they won the title again, and he knows that with his talent he can influence the destiny of his team.”Eden Hazard is expecting some special treatment from Manchester United’s midfield at Stamford Bridge today.More: https://t.co/qMVhrNUdN1 pic.twitter.com/blVpCMuRKa— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) October 19, 2018We seriously can’t wait for this match to start, it’s going to be one of the most exciting fixtures of the weekend in all of Europe and both clubs are already taking the necessary precautions to not lose the match.However, the most difficult task will be for Jose Mourinho because he knows that Hazard is currently at the top of his game and there is very little the opponent can do when great stars are unplayable.Surely there is already a plan in motion to try and stop him, but considering the poor defensive capabilities that Manchester United has at the moment, there isn’t much they can do to avoid getting owned by the Belgian Red Devil.As far as the future is concerned, it would obviously be great watching Hazard play under Jose Mourinho again but the future is uncertain right now. Let us focus on the present for now, and talk about the future after this match is over.The Premier League is back!Time for Merse’s predictions – do you agree?More: https://t.co/11p0dztkcj pic.twitter.com/Jwm0hWc84F— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) October 19, 2018Which club would you like for Hazard and Mourinho to cross paths again?
