Elsmere Canyon acreage donated for open space

first_imgThe canyon teems with wildlife, riparian habitats, oak woodlands and coastal sage. Activists had fought for 20 years to keep the site from being used to ease a growing landfill shortage. Among those who led the charge was Marsha McLean, now the city’s mayor. “Any time we’re able to preserve open space in perpetuity – especially in Elsmere Canyon since we’ve worked so long to keep it from becoming a landfill – I’m very happy,” McLean said. Still, she said, “It was my hope the entire almost 1,200 acres could also be in public ownership.” SANTA CLARITA – Hundreds of acres in picturesque Elsmere Canyon – once earmarked for the world’s biggest trash dump – were formally donated as open space this week in a move heralded as a conservation victory. The Mountains and Recreation Conservation Authority on Wednesday officially accepted the 400 acres, adjacent to a preserve in Whitney Canyon. “Having that additional guaranteed open-space buffer for Whitney is a real boon,” said Rory Skei, chief deputy executive officer for the organization. The Elsmere acreage was donated by Allied Waste, parent company of Browning-Ferris Industries, at the request of Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. But McLean said she is now looking to the future of the remaining 800 acres, although Allied has not said what it wants to do with the land. “We’ve had great interest in this property,” said Greg Loughnane, district manager for Allied. “We’re giving the end use of the property thoughtful consideration at this time.” Elsmere, in the San Gabriel Mountains southeast of Interstate 5 and the Antelope Valley Freeway junction, neighbors Whitney, which was preserved in a partnership of the city and the conservation authority. Placerita Canyon is just north of Whitney. judy.orourke@dailynews.com (661) 257-5255160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Parkman reborn

first_imgGOODBYE and good riddance to Parkman Middle School, and all the problems associated with public-school bureaucracy and mediocrity. Hello to Woodland Hills Academy, which is rising in Parkman’s stead, offering a promise of school reform from the ground up. This transformation came after two months of struggle between the teachers – who took a courageous stand for their profession by initiating a charter effort – and Los Angeles Unified officials and teachers-union leaders who resist any type of power-sharing. They’ve had reason to be afraid. Every year the LAUSD loses thousands of students, and the union hundreds of teachers, to the growing charter school movement. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsBut faced with a determined faculty at Parkman, the system backed down. The new arrangement allows the LAUSD to retain symbolic control of the school, but gives the faculty the ability to make decisions on curriculum and spending, which is all teachers ever wanted. Now comes the hard part. The teachers at Woodland Hills Academy must make a good school great. If this experiment is successful, it will likely be used as a model for school-based reform throughout the district. If it is not, it will be an excuse for the bureaucrats and hacks to kill any other school-based management attempts. It’s in no one’s best interest to let that happen. The LAUSD and the teachers union owe it to themselves and students to help Woodland Hills Academy succeed. They must, or else they risk losing more schools right out from under them as the charter movement continues to sweep the state. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Promises made, but no results

Some of the money was then lent, according to The Bee, “at advantageous rates to development partnerships headed by Klein.” In 1982, the Fresno Board of Supervisors would hire one of those partnerships, the Tomar Klein Financial Group, as a consultant on a bond issue. Klein did not enjoy the scrutiny of his actions and said that, from then on, he would stay out of government work. He didn’t, but he did learn a lesson. When he wrote Proposition 71, he made sure to keep politicians, critics and even the public at bay. The measure remains off-limits to amendment for three years. After that, legislators can only make changes if 70 percent of the state Senate and Assembly approve. Klein also wrote the law to require that the chairman of the CIRM oversight committee have a background in advocacy of stem-cell research and experience in state government and bond issues. Sure enough, he got the job he essentially wrote for himself, becoming chairman of the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee, a 29-member board appointed by the governor and other elected officials. Jesse Reynolds, program director of the Oakland-based Center for Genetics and Society, and a supporter of embryonic stem cell research, has said that the “coronation” of Klein “may be the most overt case of cronyism and insider dealing in biomedicine yet.” But the cronyism didn’t end there. It continued with the way Klein staffed and set up CIRM. As a Sacramento Bee editorial put it, Klein “has installed his cohorts as state employees, hired and fired consultants without consulting his fellow board members, and basked in the adulation of patient advocates who see him as their savior.” The wording of Proposition 71 exempts from state open-meeting laws the working groups, panels of scientists and board members who recommend grants and standards. Public-interest lawyer Charles Halpern, a supporter of embryonic stem cell research, along with former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health Philip Lee, filed a petition seeking more open meetings, tougher conflict-of-interest rules and salary caps. In March, Klein rejected every point of their petition and defended closed meetings for the working groups on the grounds that the National Institutes of Health does likewise. That same month, state Sen. Deborah Ortiz – a Democrat who actively supported Proposition 71 – announced plans to introduce a constitutional amendment to require open meetings for CIRM and stricter rules on conflict of-interest issues. Klein fought her off with help from Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante and a high-powered lobbying firm. Klein has vowed to divest himself of any biotech and pharmaceutical interests to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest. But CIRM leaders have refused to disclose the stock holdings and consulting relationships of scientists who will be recommending billions in research grants. In July, Klein and CIRM president Zach Hall argued that scientists will refuse to participate in the institute’s grant review panel if forced to disclose potential conflicts. Hall is a neuroscientist at the University of California’s Keck School of Medicine and the founder of EnVivo Pharmaceuticals, a Massachusetts biotech firm. His salary as interim CIRM president is $389,004, far above the top NIH rate of $290,000. Hall styles himself as “John the Baptist,” preparing the way for talented researchers in search of miraculous cures. In that cause, the ICOC can spend up to $90 million on administration over 10 years and $300 million on research facilities during the first five years. The rest is slated for research grants. But bonds can’t be issued while legal action is pending. The Life Legal Defense Foundation filed a lawsuit charging that the finances of CIRM are not subject to oversight by government officials in Sacramento. The National Tax Limitation Committee and People’s Advocate are also involved in the lawsuit. With bonds on hold, Klein proposed raising $100 million from private foundations and other sources. Debt-plagued California lent $3 million to CIRM, which opened a headquarters in San Francisco and started to hand out money. But whether its research will ever yield the sorts of miraculous cures that Proposition 71 backers promised is highly doubtful. Wesley J. Smith, a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, sees CIRM as “a state unto itself” and “a political institute, not a science institute.” Proposition 71 backers, he says, “hounded on us” the notion that embryonic stem cell research was the medically most promising – even though adult stem cells have yield far better results. “From adult stem-cell research you have trials for paralysis, heart disease. We have zero benefits from embryonic stem cell research,” Smith says. “Emergency rooms and trauma centers are shutting down, services being cut and current needs wanting but we are borrowing billions in pursuit of the holy grail of stem cell research.” Voters might be disposed to undoing Proposition 71, Smith argues, when adult stem cell research becomes so successful that The New York Times reports on it without hesitation, and when the problems of Proposition 71 permeate the public consciousness. One year after the vote, that is beginning to happen. Meanwhile, the Superior Court trial is slated for Feb. 27 and opponents are prepared to continue legal challenges beyond those proceedings. Proposition 71 may wind up as an example of how not to conduct medical research, and CIRM as another state institution that promises more than it can deliver. K.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A year after the passage of Proposition 71, the $3 billion Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative, there is no sign of any research, let alone cures, and the measure is literally on trial in Alameda County Superior Court. Last month, Judge Bonnie Sabraw rejected a state request to dismiss lawsuits from opponents who charge that Proposition 71 is unconstitutional because it exists outside of state control. Judge Sabraw also lifted a stay on discovery in the case, but many of the measure’s problems are already evident. Proposition 71 was a triumph of political marketing by a man who is neither a scientist nor a medical researcher. The ballot measure, which created the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, was the brainchild of Robert Klein II, a Bay Area real-estate millionaire. At Stanford law school, Klein worked for a legal aid society on housing-rights cases. At age 27, the California Legislature hired him to draft bills that created the California Housing Finance Authority. Son of the former city manager of Fresno, Klein went on to become a deal-maker with experience in bond issues. last_img read more

SA boxing legend ‘Baby Jake’ passes away

first_img9 December 2013 Jacob “Baby Jake” Matlala, watched by former President Nelson Mandela and top Hollywood actor Will Smith, brought the curtain down on his 22-year professional boxing career on 3 March 2002 with a seventh-round stoppage win over Juan Herrera to retain his WBU junior flyweight title. It was a fitting end to an illustrious career that earned Matlala legendary status in South African boxing. His record, falling at one stage to 22 wins, one draw and seven losses, finished up at 52 victories, two draws and 12 losses. Along the way he collected the WBO flyweight, WBO junior flyweight, IBA junior flyweight and WBU junior flyweight titles, becoming the only South African boxer to win four world titles. Matlala passed away at the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital in Johannesburg on Saturday, 7 December 2013, at the age of 51. Shortest ever world champion The shortest ever world champion, Matlala began his career on February 2, 1980 with a fourth-round victory over Fraser Plaatjie in Port Elizabeth. A year later, Matlala had his second professional fight, which he lost. However, five fights later – four wins and a draw – Matlala landed the Transvaal junior flyweight title with a fifth-round technical knockout win over Simon Moema. It took him three more contests to become the South African junior flyweight champion. He successfully defended the title twice before suffering a 12th-round loss to Mveleli Luzipho in October 1983, dropping his record to 10 wins, one draw and two losses. The little man with the all-action style then claimed eight wins in succession, including his first victory over an overseas opponent. He next challenged Luzipho in a return match for the South African title, which ended in failure with another 12- round loss in November 1985.Not much taller than a Hobbit At 1.47 metres or 4 feet and 10 inches in height, “Baby Jake” is not much taller than the average Lord of the Rings hobbit. This, he once told Lucille Davie, writing for the City of Johannesburg, in an interview, was part of the reason why he quit boxing. He had run out of small people to fight. Matlala’s record was blotted when he suffered successive defeats to one fighter. In early 1996, he faced Vuyani Nene in Port Elizabeth and lost. After beating Pillay Duiker to retain the Transvaal junior flyweight title, Baby Jake again fought Nene, exactly one year after his loss to the Eastern Cape fighter, but this time for the South African title. Nene once more had the challenger’s number, stopping Matlala in the 11th round.Lost to Nene After a points victory over Kirk Morris, the diminutive Matlala took on Nene on 1 November, 1987, seven months after his unsuccessful challenge for the national title. He lasted the distance, but for the third time Nene outboxed him. Matlala subsequently racked up another three victories, including one over Daniel Ward, who later became the Commonwealth flyweight champion. These wins raised his record to 22 wins, one draw and six losses. Nene once again proved to be Matlala’s nemesis, though, defeating him on points for the South African title. At this stage of his career, in 1988, Matlala had lost seven fights, four of those to Nene. If Matlala was discouraged, he did not show it. The following year, in 1989, he again challenged for a South African title, this time as a flyweight. He came up short, however, losing on points to Jaji Sibali. He then registered a run of eight victories, including wins over two Mexican fighters and a successful outing against Wele Maqolo to lift the vacant South African junior flyweight title.World title crack After retaining his title against Ndoda Mayende, Matlala had his first crack at a world title in September 1991 when he took on Dave McCauley for the IBF flyweight title in Belfast. He failed in his attempt, suffering a 10th-round knockout at the hands of the Irishman. Three wins later, including a successful defence of his South African crown and a victory over Mexico’s Raul Acosta, Matlala challenged Pat Clinton for the WBO flyweight title in May 1993. In front of Clinton’s home town supporters in Glasgow, the South African boxer overwhelmed his opponent to capture his first world title on an eighth-round technical knockout. He added another four wins to his record, including three in title defences, before suffering his 10th career loss to Alberto Jiminez, who stopped him in the eighth round at Hammanskraal in February 1995. His next bout, three months later, ended in a draw against Liberia’s Sam Stewart.Two-time world champion Two fights later, Matlala was a world champion for the second time. In November 1995, he defeated Paul Weir on a technical decision in five rounds to secure the WBO junior flyweight title as Glasgow again proved to be his happy hunting ground. In early 1996, Matlala again took on Weir in Liverpool and retained his WBO crown. After a 12-round victory over Mickey Cantwell, he challenged Michael Carbajal for the IBA junior flyweight title. The experts argued that this would be the toughest fight of Baby Jake’s career, against a fighter regarded by many as the best pound- for-pound boxer in the world. Fighting in Las Vegas on 18 July 1997, before a large American television audience, Matlala delivered the best performance of his career, battering Carbajal for nine rounds before the referee stopped the fight, with the Mexican clearly a beaten man. That victory raised Matlala’s profile and stock considerably and, of course, earned him another world title.SA vs SA After a further four wins, including two title defences, Matlala relinquished the IBA title to face another South African, Hawk Makepula, in February 2000 for the vacant WBO junior flyweight title. It was a bout the South African boxing public had been clamouring for, but it ended in disappointment for Matlala, who lost on a controversial points decision. For the second time in his career he suffered two defeats in succession when his former sparring partner, Peter Culshaw, beat him on points for the WBU flyweight title in May of the same year. In February 2001, Matlala once more tasted world championship success, easily defeating Australia’s Todd Makelin in four rounds to claim the vacant WBU junior flyweight crown. In September, he retained the crown with a win in five rounds over Mickey Cantwell.Last fight Finally, Matlala drew the curtain on his career with the victory over Herrera, 11 years his junior. “Baby Jake” Matlala will be remembered as an all-action fighter who overcame his height and reach disadvantage by crowding his opponents and throwing a relentless barrage of punches. He will also be remembered for the fantastic condition that he kept himself in for his fights, right up to the age of 40. Above all, however, it was the little man’s big heart that captured the imagination of the South African public. Matlala always gave his best, earning the respect of opponents and spectators alike. Unsuccessful in so many attempts at winning South African titles, Baby Jake simply trained even harder, kept coming back – and suddenly started collecting world titles.last_img read more
