Nephew gets 2 years for stealing from ‘lonely’ aunt

first_img– tells court he had an “irresistible temptation” to stealChoosing not to waste the court’s time, Delchan Wilson, a 22-year-old welder, on Monday confessed to Georgetown Magistrate Judy Latchman that he had stolen $120,000 cash from his aunt, Geeta Osmond, on March 11, 2017 at her dwelling house in the Campbellville Housing Scheme in Georgetown.The prosecution’s facts are that the virtual complainant (VC) Geeta Osmond had, earlier this year, allowed her nephew to move into her home as she was living alone at the time. On March 11, Osmond checked the black purse in which she kept her savings and discovered the money missing. She confronted the defendant, and he readily admitted to removing the money; thus she reported the incident to police authorities, who arrested and charged the defendant with the offence of simple larceny.Admitting to the court that he had been fined for a similar offence in 2010, Wilson begged the magistrate for leniency, declaring that he was not a criminal, but had had an “irresistible temptation” at the time of committing the incident. He also told the court that he has a baby on the way.Before sentencing Wilson to 24 months’ imprisonment, Magistrate Latchman advised him to desist from stealing, and urged him to work in order to fulfill his needs in the future.last_img read more

Key agency heads to get raises

first_imgAt the same time, Niello and others said, California needs to pay competitively to attract skilled managers to run large, complex bureaucracies. “It’s important for the folks running these agencies to be compensated fairly, and right now that’s not the case,” said Aaron McLear, a spokesman for the governor. He emphasized that the raises are “budget-neutral” and said they would help “recruit and retain the best and the brightest.” To justify the raises, officials compared salaries for top state agency jobs with similar positions in local government. For example, the California Highway Patrol Commissioner oversees more than 10,000 employees and currently makes $142,584; the San Jose police chief, by contrast, supervises 1,789 workers and earns $207,418, according to the survey. Ten other county sheriffs and city police chiefs make more than the CHP head, and three of them earn at least $100,000 more, the survey found. In comparing health services directors, the survey uses a maximum salary of $172,152 for Santa Clara County. However, Kim Roberts, who is the chief executive officer of the Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital System, earns $285,744. She oversees the $1.5 billion, 6,000-employee system that encompasses the county hospital, public clinics, department of public health and other health services. Kim Belshe, the state health and human services secretary, will soon earn $175,000. She has purview over a $74 billion budget, 11 departments and 33,000 staff statewide. The raises, ranging from 7 percent to 27 percent, and costing up to $1 million total, would cover 52 cabinet secretaries and department directors – senior administrators who manage agencies such as health and human services, food and agriculture, and the California Highway Patrol. By contrast, most rank-and-file state workers are slated to receive a 3.3 percent raise in the next fiscal year. Schwarzenegger’s Cabinet secretaries (apart from the corrections chief) actually just got a raise – an 8.5 percent bump Dec. 1, which brought their salaries up to $142,582. That money was supposed to make up for several lean budget years when there were no raises. Before that, the last time a Cabinet secretary raise came in August 2000, when salaries were boosted 4 percent. The Legislature last year granted the governor unilateral power to award raises to senior administrators, a last-minute provision tucked into legislation granting a new contract to CHP workers. The salaries could reach up to $258,125, 125 percent of the governor’s $206,500 salary (which he declines), though that’s not being recommended. To avoid retirement “spiking,” only a portion of the raises will count toward retirement each year. Last summer, a Schwarzenegger aide said he only planned to use the newfound authority to raise the pay of Corrections and Rehabilitation Secretary Jim Tilton and possibly one other official. At that time, Tilton’s salary was boosted from $129,000 to $225,000. Lawmakers reached Monday refrained from criticizing the governor’s move, which they ceded the ability to block. Niello, the Republican Assemblyman, said he wanted more details on the comparisons used to justify the pay hikes before saying whether he thought they were just. Several legislative Democrats did not return calls for comment. Former Contra Costa County Supervisor Sunne Wright McPeak said she took a 50 percent pay cut when she left the presidency of the Bay Area Council to work as Schwarzenegger’s business, transportation and housing secretary earning $131,000. During her three-year tenure, McPeak oversaw the transformation of customer service at the Department of Motor Vehicles to drastically shorten wait times for customers. Last year, she took a $200,000 post as the first president and chief executive of the California Emerging Technology Fund, a San Francisco-based nonprofit charged with expanding high-speed Internet service to under-served communities. The new venture was a thrilling opportunity, McPeak said. It also allowed her to stop wracking up debt to make mortgage payments and assist her aging mother. “I loved doing the job I was doing,” she said. “I just couldn’t afford to do it any more.” But the sizable raises could foster dissension among rank-and-file state workers, most of whom are expected to get a 3.3 percent salary bump starting in July. “One thing we don’t do is throw rocks at other state employees when they get a raise,” said Tim Behrens, president of the Association of California State Supervisors, which represents 5,000 supervisors and managers who lack bargaining rights. But “it would be nice if they’d consider passing along the same raises to managers as they’re giving to the Legislature and agency secretaries.” mzapler@mercurynews.com (916) 441-4603 Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s administration is expected to announce today pay raises of up to 27 percent for more than 50 top officials, saying the state must boost salaries to remain competitive against local governments that pay more. The new salaries taking effect Sunday won’t cost taxpayers more, at least initially, but they will force state departments to make cuts or otherwise absorb the raises within existing personnel budgets. The hefty raises – 10 agency heads, for example, would see their annual salaries grow to $175,000, a 23 percent increase – come as Schwarzenegger is preaching the need for fiscal restraint to end chronic budget shortfalls. “Because these raises are purely discretionary,” said Roger Niello of Sacramento, the ranking Republican on the Assembly budget committee, “it does make it difficult from a public perception standpoint.” last_img read more

Man City won’t fancy Liverpool Euro test -Klopp

first_imgAlthough City beat Liverpool 5-0 in September, they suffered their only league defeat this season at Liverpool on January 14.The Reds raced into a 4-1 lead before settling for a 4-3 victory and Klopp believes that vibrant performance will set the tone for the European rematch.The quarter-final first leg will take place at Anfield on April 4 and the decisive return is set for April at Eastlands 10.“We’ve lost once and we’ve won once against them in the league. I don’t think they thought before the best draw they could have got is Liverpool. That’s a sign for us and how strong we can be,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.“We are for sure not the favourites in this round, but in the last eight there are not a lot of favourites -– maybe two of them, Bayern and Barcelona -– but thank God it’s football and nothing is decided.”The tie will be the first meeting between Premier League sides in the Champions League quarter-finals since 2010-11 when Manchester United beat Chelsea.Facing another English team gives the clash added spice and Klopp is relishing the occasion.– Added spice –“I’ve said it before and it’s still the truth, it’s always common in a draw that you’ll get your neighbour, more or less, but to be honest I don’t mind, really,” he said.“It is exactly like it was before –- we take what we’ve got. Now it’s Manchester City, let’s go.“We have a few games to play until then, but I am really looking forward to it and we will give it everything.”Runaway leaders City are 21 points clear of fourth-placed Liverpool, but Klopp hopes the frenzied atmosphere at Anfield on another big European night will prove a key factor.Asked whether he a special night was in store, Klopp replied: “100 percent! We are already looking forward to that. And it’s a nice, short trip for our supporters when we go to City.“We can get a result at home for sure, but it’s obviously a difficult game.“The good thing is they are the team we know most about. It’s not too cool for England because now only one team can go to the semis. But we will try everything.”City are chasing their first European Cup and the club’s director of football Txiki Begiristain admits Liverpool will pose a significant obstacle.“It’s a very difficult one. We like to travel and to go to another country in the Champions League but it is what it is,” he said.“In the Champions League there is no time for mistakes, everything has to work, you have to be almost perfect in both games. We know the power and the strength of Liverpool.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City wil lock horns with Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League quarters.

West Ham youngster desperate to keep first-team spot

first_imgWest Ham’s young defender Reece Burke is keen for another opportunity to show his ability against Burnley on Saturday and hopes he has done enough to keep his place in the team.Burke made his Premier League debut against QPR at Loftus Road and produced a solid display as West Ham managed to keep a clean sheet for the first time since March 21.The 18-year-old was drafted into the side after Winston Reid was sidelined with a hamstring injury.With James Tomkins expected to miss the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder, Burke could now get the chance to gain some crucial Premier League experience under his belt and says he is ready to take his chance.Burke, to London24, said: “It would be nice (to stay in the team), but that is not down to me. It was a great feeling to be out there. Before the game I was a little bit nervous, but I am so glad it went well and I am glad we got a clean sheet.“I thought I did all right. I just wanted to keep it simple and not complicate things and I think I did that really.“Playing against (Bobby) Zamora and Charlie Austin was tough, they are both very experienced. But the boys gave me tips on how to defend against them.“The concentration you have to have is on a different level. It is a real step up from the under-21s and you have to stay switched on and read the game, know what is going on and go from there really.”“It is not just the likes of me or Josh Cullen and Reece Oxford. There are a number of under-18s who train with the first team too. We are altogether so I don’t think they look at is in a different way at all.” Reece Burke in action for West Ham 1last_img read more

Fed up with people not knowing how to use roundabouts, Noel has written and recorded The Roundabout Song.The little ditty has attracted more than 3,000 hits on You Tube in just a few days.Noel pulled in a number of his family to shoot the madcap video including his son Stephen who plays a Garda in the three minute wacky video.“It’s a bit of fun but it also has a serious message behind it. “Roundabouts for some reason have been a mystery to many people and that shouldn’t be the case if they follow some small rules,” he said.NOEL DRIVES US ‘ROUND THE BEND – AGAIN! was last modified: November 22nd, 2011 by StephenShare 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:Noel SweeneySwilly DriveThe Roundabout Songlast_img read more

NFL says 2 teams in focus for L.A.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Tagliabue said he would like lease agreements with both sites in hand before the Super Bowl, so that owners would have enough time to review them before their annual meeting, March 26-28, in Orlando, Fla. The owners could decide how to proceed then or at the next scheduled meeting in May. Officials at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and in Anaheim didn’t anticipate that being a problem, though they disputed Tagliabue’s statement that term-sheet agreements – the precursor to the more detailed lease agreements – had been completed. Both sites have unresolved issues, they said. Still, most Coliseum backers found plenty to be pleased with Thursday. “There are no negatives when the commissioner of the NFL comes to Los Angeles, meets with the mayor and talks to the press,” said City Councilman Bernard Parks, a member of the Coliseum Commission. “Theseare all positive things.” After Tagliabue spoke to the media, NFL officials sought to dampen the suggestion that the deal was the Coliseum’s to lose, emphasizing that there was no leader. Pringle said Tagliabue made the same point when they met. “He reiterated to us that regardless of whatever pronouncements were made earlier in the day, no decisions have been made,” Pringle said. “We certainly asked for a clarification. I trust what they said, that there’s no bias one way or the other.” Like those at the Coliseum, Anaheim officials believe they’ll be able to have lease agreements approved by the time of the Super Bowl. “I don’t see anything that would keep us from that,” Pringle said. “We’re very close to completing a proposal that will be good for our community.” Villaraigosa said he was encouraged by the meeting with Tagliabue, calling it a constructive session. “There is both tremendous enthusiasm and spirited consensus for our community about the Coliseum as the pre-eminent venue for professional football,” Villaraigosa said. “It is time for professional football to come home to the Coliseum.Los Angeles will be significant for the NFL in the coming decades.” However, another city leader was underwhelmed by Tagliabue’s statements. “We’re well beyond courtesy calls at this point,” said AssemblymanMark Ridley-Thomas, D-Los Angeles, who authored legislation that would put tax dollars raised by the renovation of the Coliseum into the surrounding neighborhood. “I would have preferred the commissioner was coming to lay the foundation for the owners meeting next week. There is a point at which when you drag things out for a length of time, it becomes problematic. Why delay?” Ridley-Thomas recalled that Tagliabue stood under the peristyle end of the Coliseum in 1999 and said the 32nd NFL franchise would play there. Later that year, it was awarded to Houston. “The deal isn’t inked and he hasn’t been definitive enough to returning the NFL to the Coliseum,” Ridley-Thomas said. Tagliabue gave no indication of whether a stadium might be ready in 2009, 2010 or even beyond. Nor did he completely dismiss the Rose Bowl, though he acknowledged it has steep hurdles – the passage of an initiative, which is in the signature-gathering stage and facing legal challenges – to be considered. Tagliabue also said it’s important for Los Angeles’ corporate community to lend its support and acknowledged that reaching a satisfactory agreement with USC would be critical. Such a requirement is part of the Coliseum’s term-sheet demands with the NFL, according to a source. “The agreements that would eventually be presented would include arrangements for USC to continue to play in the Coliseum on terms that would be more than satisfactory for that great university and its currently stellar football team,” Tagliabue said. As for who might play in the Coliseum, Tagliabue said there’s been little discussion of expansion or relocation. He said the New Orleans Saints, who are in limbo as a result of Hurricane Katrina, are not currently under consideration, though he didn’t dismiss their ending up in Los Angeles at some point. “There are great uncertainties right now in the Gulf Coast region,” Tagliabue said. “Those uncertainties are going to have to be addressed with respect to the NFL and all other businesses that were robust in the New Orleans area and the Gulf Coast region. We’re going to work through those uncertainties and keep the Saints, if we can, in Louisiana.” Uncertainties are nothing new in Los Angeles, either. When the NFL dove back into exploring Los Angeles in the spring of 2003, there was talk of a decision on a stadium site in May 2004 and playing in 2007. Then it was between Carson and Pasadena. Now, it’s Anaheim and the Coliseum. “If my timeline has been fluctuating,” Tagliabue said, “it’s because the only one who can create a timeline here and stick to it is a person who has more foresight than I have. “These things aren’t driven by timelines. They’re driven by good-faith discussions and by developing and understanding of the mutual benefits of having a team. The critical thing now is that we’re at the point where it’s recognized, certainly by us and (Villaraigosa) emphasized that the timing is right. With the progress we’ve made on term sheets, I think in the next several months we can bring this to fruition.” Staff Writer Rick Orlov contributed to this story.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Once just a faint blip on the radar as the NFL considered its return to Los Angeles, the Coliseum is now “the focus” of the league’s effort to return to the nation’s second-largest market, Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said Thursday. Tagliabue made his remarks from the steps of Los Angeles City Hall between meetings with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle during a whirlwind 24-hour visit in which he also met with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and University of Southern California football coach Pete Carroll. While Tagliabue did not visit Anaheim, the other site the league is considering, he gave his strongest indication yet that Los Angeles,which has not had any NFL teams since the Rams and Raiders left after the 1994 season, may have two in the coming years. “We’re looking at this as not an either-or,” Tagliabue said. “There’s a potential that there could be teams at both places. Right now, the focus is on the Coliseum as an opportunity. Those conversations will recognize that it’s not necessarily an either-or situation.” last_img read more

Taoiseach issues appeal to people of Donegal to vote yes in referendum

first_imgAn Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar has asked the Donegal public to vote Yes in the forthcoming referendum on the eighth amendment. In this piece specially written for Donegal Daily, the Fine Gael leader says that for compassion in a crisis, people should vote yes. This is the full content of his statement.On May 25th, you will be asked a once-in-a-generation question. It’s 35 years since the 8th Amendment was put into our Constitution. It was put in to stop abortion. It hasn’t done so. It has just let us sweep it under the carpet.In 2016, 3,265 Irish women travelled to the UK to end their pregnancy, including 63 from Donegal. This figure simply describes those women who went to the UK, and not those who went further afield. It also only describes those women who gave Irish addresses to the UK services; many do not.So, at least nine Irish women every day travel to other countries to end their pregnancies, often making the journey alone and in secret. Another three women every day, and that number is growing, order abortion pills over the internet and end their pregnancies at home without medical supervision, counselling, support or advice.It’s important to remember that if the referendum doesn’t pass, nothing can change for Irish women. The referendum question is simple. It asks us whether we want to keep the 8th amendment – which means terminations are only allowed if there is a serious risk to the life of the mother – or whether we should remove it.If we don’t remove the amendment from the Constitution, our doctors and lawmakers can’t do anything for women who have been raped, who are children themselves or who have been given the heartbreaking news of a fatal foetal abnormality. If the referendum doesn’t pass, these women will continue to have to travel abroad. If the referendum is passed, the Government will introduce a safe, regulated, doctor-led system for the termination of pregnancies. However, it will not be unrestricted. First of all, there will be a waiting period of 72 hours from when the women goes to her doctor to allow her to consider all other options and access counselling if she wishes. A medical professional will have to certify that the pregnancy has not exceeded 12 weeks (that’s 10 weeks after conception).Terminations beyond 12 weeks will remain illegal except in very specific circumstances; such as in the heartbreaking situation where the parents-to-be are told their baby won’t survive outside the womb, or when the life or health of the woman is at serious risk. These cases will have to be certified by two medical professionals.Viable pregnancies will not be aborted. Instead the baby will be delivered early. So those posters claiming otherwise are simply designed to cause shock and upset. They don’t reflect the Government’s proposals. Our system will be much more restrictive than the UK’s.If you are still deciding which way to vote, I ask you to put yourself in the shoes of a woman in a crisis pregnancy. She may have been raped, or just been told that her much wanted baby isn’t going to survive. She might be a teenage girl. Her crisis shouldn’t be up for debate in the courts or our parliament. Instead, her private and personal medical condition should be a matter for her, her family and her doctor.For compassion in crisis, vote Yes on May 25th.

Get a room? Warriors take Kiss Cam to ‘creepy’ new level

first_imgThe Warriors’ Kiss Cam is back, and more uncomfortable than ever.If you last attended a sporting event during the Jimmy Carter presidency, you may be a stranger to the genre. During a lull in the proceedings, fans are flashed on a huge video board for everyone in the joint to see. The fans are encouraged to engage in a public lip-lock. Usually they oblige, as did Steph Curry and his wife Ayesha when they were spied at a Giants game.Other times they don’t. Sometimes the bit leaves you …last_img
