California falls far behind other states on openness

first_imgFor a state with a progressive reputation, California’s record on open government has left it far behind many other states. In Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Rhode Island and Nebraska, for example, attorneys general investigate and even prosecute public officials who fail to disclose public records. In a nationwide survey The Associated Press conducted to coincide with Sunshine Week – an effort to draw attention to the public’s right to know – California ranked near the bottom of states that actively enforce open government, or sunshine, laws. Political analysts and government watchdogs say there is irony in California’s spot on the list: Some of the social and financial forces that have built the state – Hollywood, Silicon Valley and union interests – have undercut California in the open-records arena. “The entertainment industry and, equally, the high-tech industry have a lot of powerful people who have been sensitized to privacy issues because they understand – perhaps better than the rest of us – the powers of technology and media,” said Peter Scheer, executive director of the California First Amendment Coalition. “Public employees’ unions, too. They oppose access to information about their members and do what unions are supposed to do. But … in California all these groups tend to be better organized, better funded and more successful.” he said. “Sometimes that comes at the expense of (open) government.” California, in fact, has retreated by some public-access measures since voters in 2004 endorsed a constitutional amendment to protect the public’s right to view government documents and attend meetings. Passage of the amendment was billed as a watershed for public access in California. Advocates said it would limit lawmakers’ ability to write loopholes into law and require officials and even state judges to narrowly interpret laws that restrict the public’s access to government’s inner workings. Schwarzenegger embraced the amendment by taking the unprecedented step of releasing his appointment calendars. Beyond that, many First Amendment lawyers say the measure has so far done little to make government more transparent. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SACRAMENTO – Cities from San Francisco to Los Angeles this year have locked reporters out of police disciplinary hearings, citing a court ruling limiting access to government records. The result: Californians might not always know if beatings or shootings by officers are ruled justified or whether those officers are disciplined or labeled as bad cops. In another open-records case, California Supreme Court justices are questioning whether the public has the right to know the salaries of government employees – even though they’re paid with taxpayer money. And Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last year vetoed a plan to give citizens more power to appeal when politicians’ refuse to release public records. last_img read more

The PRRD officially adopts new building bylaw

first_img“The building bylaw emulates Building Bylaw No. 1189, 1995,” Outgoing Director of Electoral Area C, Arthur Hadland said in a written statement. “It is the same as the one that was in place for the past 25 years, the area covered remains the same.”A majority of the new bylaw is “minor administrative and legislative changes” that were based on legal review, later presented at three public meetings. During these meetings, community residents made recommendations, such as including the definition and application form of “farm buildings” as a part of the new building bylaw which has now been officially incorporated.“Building Bylaw No. 1996, 2011 is now repealed however there is a transition provision that allows for all permits previously issued under Bylaw 1996 to be administered under that bylaw until the project is completed or the permit expires,” a media release reads.- Advertisement -Building inspection is now mandatory with a specified area, with permit fees and processes as they were before Bylaw No. 1996.The PRRD Board has also approved a building bylaw referendum to be discussed in a further report sometime in November of 2015.“If a referendum is held it will be non-binding as it is a regulatory bylaw for which there is no authority to hold a binding referendum,” the media release concludes.Advertisement The objective of a referendum, according to the PRRD, is to gage the opinion of the electoral community members regarding the PRRD building inspection service and bring the results back to the board for further discussion.last_img read more

Kitsault or bust – an entrepreneur’s aspiration for an LNG terminal

first_img“[The] goal [is to] create a dedicated energy corridor and export terminal for energy out of Kitsault,” says Suthanthiran.Suthanthiran says his project is poised to be chosen as one of the many export proponents looking to set-up shop in B.C., and while the only regularly approval he’s secured has been an export order for 20 million tonnes per year from the National Energy Board – not to be confused with an export licence – he remains optimistic.“You go back and look at all of the proponents; everybody’s trying to find a place, everybody’s trying to go somewhere,” Suthanthiran goes on to explain. “Both TransCanada and Spectra are tying to bring in a pipeline either through Kitsault or near Kitsault, so I think what you see there is that we have a town, we have an infrastructure, and again I’m an optimistic person – if it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen.”- Advertisement -In fact, Suthanthiran says he’s been informally contacting First Nations and other affected residents in an effort to engage the community in his LNG aspirations.“I’ve been to a number of First Nations meetings, and also I have met a number of times with the Nisga’a president and his team,” Suthanthiran says. “I think that any discussion with the community; it’s a continuing and ongoing one – there’s no start or stop.”Suthanthiran says the land of Kitsault was actually surveyed by the federal and provincial government 35 years ago for a possible port site and it was found to be a suitable candidate.Advertisement “Right now, B.C. and fellow governments are looking to add another port in northwest B.C., because of increased traffic; they see what’s happening in Prince Rupert and Kitimat, and what the potential future LNG traffic [presents].”Suthanthiran’s goal is to export 5 million tonnes of LNG per year, and says production may increase into 20 million tonnes.He hopes the terminal will be running by 2018 – 2019.last_img read more

Gerhart commits to Stanford

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “Stanford is one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world,” he said. “You can’t beat it.” Another big factor was the chance to play two sports. Gerhart cited Stanford’s history of athletes playing both baseball and football, such as John Elway, Chad Hutchinson and Joe Borchard. “What was most appealing was the long line of two-sport athletes,” he said. “And coach (Mark) Marquess has been there a long time and had plenty of experience with two-sport guys.” It had been a well-known fact it was a two-school race for several weeks between Stanford and UCLA for Gerhart. He had also tripped to Utah and Mississippi. NORCO – Toby Gerhart is trading in the blue and white for cardinal and white. Gerhart, the star football and baseball player at Norco High School, announced Wednesday that he had made a verbal commitment to attend Stanford. “I just felt really comfortable with the players and the other recruits in my class,” Gerhart said. “I just fit in real well with them.” Gerhart, ranked near the top of his class academically, said academics played a role in choosing Stanford, which he made a trip to just last weekend. center_img He admitted that although it wasn’t the deciding factor, UCLA running back coach Eric Bieniemy’s recent departure to the Minnesota Vikings did impact Gerhart’s decision. Gerhart was the Inland Valley football player of the year in 2005, in which he set Inland Valley records for rushing yards in a game (458), rushing yards in a season (3,233) and rushing yards in a career (9,662). The career yards also set a state record, helping him earn Gatorade and Cal-Hi Sports state player of the year honors. Pro baseball is still an option for Gerhart instead of Stanford, however. If the outfielder is drafted this June and he signs, he realizes he will probably need to forget football. “I’d definitely consider playing pro baseball if everything comes out right,” he said. “But I’d probably have to focus on baseball. It depends on the ballclub.” Gerhart can exhale now that he’s decided. “I’m happy and relieved,” he said. “It’s all over now, all the recruiting hype.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Keelan McGill the hero as Naomh Conaill win Minor Championship

first_imgA late, late goal from Keelan McGill ensured Naomh Conaill would take the Donegal MFC title after a titanic tussle with St Eunan’s. As the game ticked deep into injury-time, it looked like the title was heading back to O’Donnell Park, with St Eunan’s ahead by one.However, there was to be one final twist in the tale with McGill scoring a late goal which resulted in heartbreak for St Eunan’s and euphoria for Naomh Conaill. The talk going in to this match was going to be the battle between St Eunan’s Niall O’Donnell and Naomh Conaill’s Eoghan McGettigan.Both helped Donegal win the Ulster MFC title earlier this summer, and are without doubt two of the hottest prospects in the county.Neither disappointed with O’Donnell scoring eight of St Eunan’s eleven scores, while McGettigan notched five points, with four coming from play.There was nothing between the sides all throughout this brilliant contest, with the sides level on no fewer than seven occasions. With St Eunan’s leading by one point as the game ticked into injury-time, Naomh Conaill went in desperate search of an equaliser.A hopeful ball into the area towards Nathan Byrne from Keelan McMonagle made life extremely difficult for Matthew Gallagher and with the ball breaking off that pair, McGill reacted quickest to hammer into the empty net.St Eunan’s were stunned, and they valiantly tried to respond, but Naomh Conaill added another late point to seal the deal.Final score Naomh Conaill 1-11 St Eunan’s 0-11Keelan McGill the hero as Naomh Conaill win Minor Championship was last modified: October 24th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAMFCNaomh ConaillnewsSportSt Eunanslast_img read more
