Cuddling the shuttle

first_imgMolina said the shuttle service also helps relieve congestion on local freeways and streets. The 20-passenger shuttle can accommodate two wheelchairs and operates Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Service is not provided on Sundays and holidays. The shuttle will stop every hour at various locations including Avocado Heights Park, San Angelo Park, Bassett Park, Torch and Edgewood Middle Schools, Bassett High School, Sunkist Library and local shopping areas, officials said. John Huang, a civil engineer with the Department of Public Works, said the shuttle service will cost $195,000 per year to maintain and is funded through Molina’s allocation of Proposition A Local Return Transit Fund. Huang said a county study in 2003 showed a need for the shuttle service. • Video: New shuttle service AVOCADO HEIGHTS – County officials said a new shuttle servicing the county areas of Avocado Heights, Bassett and Valinda corridor communities is bridging a transportation gap. The service was launched by County Supervisor Gloria Molina on Jan. 31 to provide residents with transportation to all local parks, libraries, shopping areas and to regional transit systems. “It has improved accessibility for a lot of people,” Molina said. “It’s an issue of mobility with everyone wanting to get from point A to point B, and we are very proud to provide this kind of access for everyone, especially to our seniors and kids.” “In Avocado Heights the only major corridor is Workman Mill Road and most homes are beyond a quarter of a mile from it,” Huang said. “So this bridges that gap and goes into residential areas to pick people up and get them to a major transit bus stop.” In addition to the regular route, residents can extend shuttle service into other parts of the community by using the flexible route option. The shuttle costs riders 25 cents, but seniors 65 and older, persons with disabilities, Metro pass holders and children under 5 ride free. Children under 12 must ride with an adult. Resident Patricia Page, who works at the Bassett Senior Center, said the new shuttle will be great for the community. “It’s very important to have it especially for the seniors. Now they can get to the senior center for the free lunch we provide daily,” Page said. “This has been a dream of ours for a long time and I’m glad it’s here.” For schedule information, call (800) 439-0439.

On Saturday, Google Earth still showed Villa O’Higgins in Argentina. SANTIAGO, Chile – Chile has asked Google Inc. to correct its popular online mapping service that shows a southern Chilean town – named after a national hero – as part of neighboring Argentina. Villa O’Higgins, a town of about 400 residents near the glacier-encrusted tip of South America, was named after Bernardo O’Higgins, a revered commander of military forces that won Chile’s independence from Spain. Chile’s Foreign Ministry said it had contacted Google, and the Mountain View, Calif.-based search engine company said on Saturday that it was working on the request. “We have received the request and are working with our partners to get more precise data for the region,” Google spokeswoman Megan Quinn said. “We’re constantly working to improve the quality and accuracy of our maps.

Most polluted beaches in L.A. area

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2If a beach doesn’t meet standards, state officials can ask local officials to determine the source of the problem and set a timeline to fix it. At Malibu’s Surfrider Beach, surfers paddled out into the waves as Heal the Bay executive director Mark Gold told reporters near the water’s edge that beaches are usually clean unless they are near pollution sources like piers, storm drains, or creeks. Surfrider is next to both Malibu Creek and the Malibu Pier. Sources of pollution include leaky sewer pipes, fertilizer, birds, people not cleaning up after their pets, septic systems that allow waste to enter groundwater, and even homeless people who defecate in the street, said James Alamillo, manager of the report card. “It’s a witch’s brew of fecal contaminants,” he said. The group faulted Los Angeles health officials for not notifying beach-goers about several beaches that Alamillo described as “just horrible on a week-to-week basis.” MALIBU – Almost all of the state’s most polluted beaches are in Los Angeles County, where officials aren’t doing enough to notify the public of water contamination at problem locations, the environmental group Heal the Bay charged Wednesday. Though about 85 percent of the state’s beaches are very clean, some have been polluted by fecal bacteria and other potentially disease-causing organisms from runoff, according to the group’s 16th annual “Beach Report Card.” The report ranked one beach each in San Mateo, Orange, and San Diego counties among the most polluted, as well as 10 beaches in or near Los Angeles. The report was released amid an approaching July 15 deadline requiring every Los Angeles County beach to meet cleanliness standards for every day of the non-rainy period between April and October. Rain contributes to unusually heavy runoff in other months. last_img read more
