Public access to trails will be open at all times. Working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.The construction work, supervised by Public Works officials and an environmental consultant for the county, is not part of sediment removal operations currently underway in the reservoir.The Devil’s Gate Reservoir Restoration project is a four-year effort to increase flood protection for communities downstream of Devil’s Gate Dam and restore habitat within a popular section of the Arroyo Seco Watershed.The county Public Works Department plans to remove 1.7 million cubic yards of sediment from the reservoir immediately behind the 100-year old dam.In addition to providing flood relief to communities that have endured nearly a decade of elevated flood risk in the Arroyo Seco, the project will establish a permanent stormwater maintenance area that allows for the creation of 70 acres of enhanced habitat and recreational opportunities for local communities.Devil’s Gate is the oldest dam constructed by the L.A. County Flood Control District, providing flood protection for Pasadena, South Pasadena and Los Angeles.A large amount of sediment has not been removed from Devil’s Gate since 1994, when workers hauled out 160,000 cubic yards. The Station Fire in 2009 dumped a million cubic yards of soil and debris into the basin.For more information on the full range of enhancements at Devil’s Gate Reservoir, visit the website at DevilsGateProject.com.

Norwich close to announcement

first_imgNorwich chief executive David McNally says the club are hoping to name their new manager within days. But Adams was unable to prevent the Norfolk club from losing their top-flight status, with the board admitting to making mistakes and feeling “frustrated, hugely disappointed and embarrassed” by relegation. However, McNally revealed Adams is “a credible candidate” for the managerial vacancy with the likes of former City captain Malky Mackay, Celtic boss Neil Lennon and Gianfranco Zola also being linked to the position. The club had hoped to make an announcement “within a week” but after Sunday’s deadline passed, McNally and joint majority shareholders Delia Smith and her husband Michael Wynn Jones appeared on Radio Norfolk for a special phone-in on Monday morning. When asked if Norwich have made an approach for a new manager, McNally said: “No we haven’t. We are still in the process. “We announced the search started after the season ended. It is probably going to take a little longer. “We are talking to a short list of candidates. We are taking a few days longer than we indicated but it is only days. “Neil is definitely a candidate and a credible candidate. He accepted the poisoned chalice and managed the team through a very difficult period.” On the possibility of appointing fans’ favourite Mackay, McNally added: ” As a man I don’t know him very well, Delia and Michael probably know him better from his time at the club. I know his place in Norwich City folklore and his success as a Championship player. Press Association McNally also confirmed a position of technical director will be part of the new management structure at Carrow Road. The Canaries placed youth team coach Neil Adams in charge for the final five games of the Barclays Premier League season following the sacking of Chris Hughton on April 6. “I think it’s unfair on any candidate to confirm or otherwise because somebody is going to get the job and others won’t and I don’t think that’s right.” Many fans have accused the board of not acting sooner by replacing Hughton in January but celebrity chef Smith responded: “There wasn’t anybody else out there. “We didn’t feel at that time there was anybody out there so we had a decision to make, do we bring in a kind of caretaker, so there were one or two names we were looking at, or go with a manager who is winning home games?” She added: “We got it wrong. It might have happened that if we got a caretaker manager in that we might have stayed up. But there was no guarantee.” last_img read more

Tottenham Hotspur Fans Attacked In Rome

first_imgA group of English football fans have been injured in a late-night clash in Rome ahead of a Europa League match.At least nine Britons and one American were hurt when masked assailants attacked a pub in the Italian capital, according to police.The Britons were in the country to support Tottenham Hotspur who are due to play Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night.They were set upon by knife-wielding “Ultras” – fanatical fans – when they were enjoying a drink at The Drunken Ship pub, according to reports.Blood stained the cobblestones outside the bar, chairs and bits of wood were strewn across the floor, and windows were broken.Briton Ashley Mills was stabbed and was in serious condition, police said, and the American was also stabbed. “We understand from local police that nine of our supporters suffered injuries last night following an incident in the city centre. Three of these supporters were taken to hospital for further treatment,” said a statement from a Spurs spokesman.Police said around 50 Italians were involved in the assault, and that some had been arrested.The aggressors, who were believed to be Lazio fans, had their faces covered by motorcycle helmets or scarves when they launched their assault shortly after 1am.Italian newspaper La Repubblica described the clashes as “urban warfare” and reported that up to 100 “Ultras” armed with knives, baseball bats and belts had taken part in the attack.Witness Giuseppe Tamborra said: “I saw four people lying on the ground, one with his forehead cut open from here to here, probably with a stool taken from the bar. “The Italians were very organised, with helmet, bats, even balaclavas,” he said.The Drunken Ship, a popular drinking spot for tourists and foreign students, is located in the Campo de Fiori — one of the most visited squares in the Italian capital’s historic centre.The square features a colourful food market and a vibrant nightlife, and the American-owned bar is renowned for its lively atmosphere.There was no response from the pub on Thursday morning.A Foreign Office spokesman confirmed they are investigating the clash.last_img read more

Iowa counties without casinos benefit from endowment program

first_imgDES MOINES — A program created by the Iowa Legislature in 2004 requires one-half percent of the gambling tax revenue from the state goes to 84 counties which don’t have a casino.Iowa Gaming Association president, Wes Ehrecke says the idea was the spread the wealth. “Making sure that all of the non-casino counties would also have a source of funding. And they established the qualified community county foundations,” Ehrecke says.Ehrecke gave a report on the 15 years of the County Endowment Fund last week to the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. “There’s been 28,581 grants with $107 million provided — which has been extraordinary in each of these respective counties,” according to Ehrecke.He says the program allows the counties to create grants based on their needs. “They all have their own separate board of directors to decide the criteria,” Ehrecke says. “They each received approximately $125,000 last year. Which 25% goes into a permanent endowment. And over those 15 years — that has grown extensively.” The other 75 percent of the money is spent on grants each year.You can find out more about the endowment funds in your county at www.iowacommunityfoundations.org.last_img read more
