first_imgJustice Minister and Attorney General Cllr. Benedict F. Sannoh has vowed to prosecute those involved in last Thursday’s Red Light conflict, including any officer of the Liberia National Police (LNP) who acted unprofessionally.He announced that motorbike riders on the streets of Monrovia in particular, ELWA junction to Paynesville Red Light and Paynesville Red Light to Double Bridge and Paynesville Red Light to Mount Barclay are suspended effective last Friday.“LNP is hereby instructed to impound any motorbike found plying the streets from this date, and to have the rider arrested, detained and charged,” Minister Sannoh added.According to him, this will enable the government to secure a corridor of peace and tranquility in the affected areas, investigate the circumstances that led to the disturbance and take appropriate actions.He called on residents and citizens in the areas affected to cooperate with the government in having this incident investigated.At a news conference in Monrovia on Friday, Cllr. Sannoh explained that upon the death news of a bike rider, the riders went on a rampage during which they vandalized and destroyed 5 police depots, released all the detainees and set the stations ablaze.According to Minister Sannoh private and police vehicles were damaged and a number of police officers, including female officers were attacked, stripped naked and seriously injured.Minister Sannoh warned that motorbike riders will not be allowed to hold Liberia under hostage nor will the peace and stability of the country “be left to their whims and caprices or to the whims and caprice of their supporters as experienced on Thursday.“This incident caused panic, fear and disruption of normal activities in the Paynesville area and its environs and the government will not allow this despicable act to go unpunished,” he warned.Minister Sannoh further explained that before the Red Light episode, an AFL soldier assaulted and killed a bike rider in Thinkers Village community and the soldier has been arrested and detained.According to him, the Minister of Defence and the AFL Chief will soon make a determination as to whether the soldier will be tried by the AFL under the Uniform Code of Military Justice   (UCMJ) or will be disrobed and turned over to the Justice Ministry for prosecution.The Justice Minister warned, “The government will not condone impunity and we want to assure the general public that the AFL soldier will be tried and punished in accordance with the law.”Minister Sannoh said another death also occurred on Friday morning when a commercial truck ran into a motorbike rider resulting into injuries from which the rider subsequently died. The truck driver, he said, has been arrested and charged.“We are aware that the use of motorbikes is an economic activity and that it creates jobs for many people, particularly our youths. “The right to use motorbikes does not confer upon bike riders any special privilege to engage in conduct that will undermine the peace and stability of Liberia,” the Justice Minister emphasized.Meanwhile, Minister Sannoh has called on all bike riders to respect the law and submit their grievances to the law and not to take matters into their own hands. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Ire mounts on reversible lane project

admin No Comments

first_imgLos Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl, whose district includes Brentwood, has held a series of meetings with homeowners near the proposed freeway construction, including Church Lane residents, and does not want Caltrans to use eminent domain to take any houses in his area for the expansion. “I am very protective of my community and my folks,” said Rosendahl. “I have taken a very strong position that I do not want to see any of the homes confiscated.” City Councilman Jack Weiss, whose district includes parts of West Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, said there are two goals to keep in mind with the upcoming projects: to improve traffic through the Sepulveda Pass and not to disrupt existing communities. “My hope is that by getting all the issues on the table, we can find a way to do both,” said Weiss. sue.doyle@dailynews.com (818) 713-3746 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A community meeting to be held on Thursday will focus on concerns about the Sepulveda Boulevard project, as well as the $950 million plan to build a car-pool lane along the northbound 405 Freeway from the 10 to the 101 freeways. After receiving $730 million in bond money this year, the California Department of Transportation held two public hearings in March so residents could comment on four proposals for expanding the 405 Freeway to accommodate a car-pool lane. The most controversial proposal involves razing a Lutheran church and dozens of homes on Church Lane in Brentwood. The Caltrans decision on its preferred route is imminent, agency spokeswoman Judy Gish said. Once the proposal is released, Caltrans will release it to the public to review for two months and then will hold another public hearing. The 405 Freeway expansion is expected to be completed by 2012. As the city finalizes its plans to build a reversible lane on Sepulveda Boulevard to help ease rush-hour jams, some residents remain fiercely opposed to the project, fearing the thoroughfare will become a mini-freeway. The reversible lane would be part of an $11.3 million project including widening the boulevard along a six-mile stretch between Mulholland Drive and Wilshire Boulevard. If the City Council approves the project, groundbreaking would be in June 2008 on the effort to reduce congestion on the San Diego Freeway, which carries an estimated 30,000 motorists daily between the San Fernando Valley and the rest of L.A. The plan calls for dedicating the middle of three lanes through the tunnel to southbound traffic in the morning and to northbound traffic in the evening. While engineers consider reversible lanes a quick fix to traffic congestion, residents worry about the impact on local neighborhoods. “Transportation/traffic would be a nightmare for not only those that are landlocked, Skirball, Mountaingate and Bel Air Crest … but the (30,000) to 40,000 cars that use Sepulveda to and from the Valley,” says a letter to city officials from homeowner Patricia Bell Hearst, who is spearheading opposition to the project. last_img read more

Assistant general manager Claud Seal will be interim general manager until the board hires a replacement. Plans for the executive search haven’t been made. Voters formed the district in 1966 with the goal of creating an agency to enhance the community’s economic, environmental and social well-being. ROSAMOND – After working 37 years with the Rosamond Community Services District – longer than anyone else in the district’s history – general manager Sherry Delano will retire. “Everyone with the Rosamond Community Services District is extremely grateful for the decades of service, dedication, hard work and caring that Sherry gave to better our community,” said Daniel Landsgaard, president of the district’s board. “While we’re sad to see her leave, we wish her all the best and hope she enjoys her well-deserved retirement. She’s been a tremendous asset for the Rosamond community.” Delano came to work for the district in 1969 and has seen the community change enormously over the years. Rosamond’s population has grown 10-fold from roughly 2,000 to nearly 20,000. The district provides water for residential use, irrigation and fire flow, collects and treats waste and storm water, manages street lights, oversees parks and recreation and provides graffiti abatement.
