Investigation of EDD’s managerial meltdown is warranted | Walters

In theory, we humans practice politics as a pathway to governance – providing an array of laws, regulations and services to protect and otherwise enhance the lives of the governed. In practice, politics often – too often – become all-consuming exercises that bear only the faintest relationship to governance. Case in point: the U.S. Congress. An aspect of that disconnect is the eagerness of those in office to build their images by constantly offering up proposals for new laws, services and programs while ignoring whether earlier laws, services and programs that officialdom birthed are performing as promised. Often they are not, but even when informed about the shortcomings of design and/or implementation, officials tend to minimize or brush aside the criticism, fearing that acknowledgement would be a sign of weakness. Management and oversight just don’t have the political sex appeal of some shiny new notion that promises boundless benefits. Examples of the syndrome abound, particularly in a state as large and diverse as California. The state’s bullet train project is certainly one. Billions of dollars have been consumed and various structures have been built but the project

‘I won’t stand for it.’ Russell Westbrook admonishes fans for inappropriate comments

The Clippers reached the nadir of their month-old season Monday during a loss to short-handed Denver that ended with guard Russell Westbrook’s heated exchange with fans in the final 30 seconds of a 113-104 defeat. Security for both Arena and the Clippers and referee Lauren Holtkamp stood between Westbrook and the sideline as teammates and even opponents came over to try to defuse the back-and-forth, which included fans a few rows behind courtside seats gesturing toward the former NBA most valuable player, who is in his second season with his hometown Clippers. “It’s just unfortunate fans think they can get away with saying anything and I won’t, personally, I won’t allow it,” Westbrook said. “I’ve took a lot of people saying anything and getting away with it, but I won’t stand for it.” Westbrook would not specify what the fans said that led to his reaction, calling it inappropriate, but was adamant it had crossed a certain line of conduct. “If I’m responding, it’s the reason I’m responding and I’ll protect that always,” he said. “I mean it’s no different now. I tell people

Tomas Hertl’s replacement, at least for a night, scores game-winning goal for Sharks

SAN JOSE – San Jose Sharks center Tomas Hertl was injured and unavailable for Monday’s game with the Washington Capitals. That thrust Luke Kunin, usually used as a winger, into a top-six centerman’s role. Kunin made the most of the opportunity, scoring a go-ahead power-play goal with 7:12 left in the third period to help lift the Sharks to a 2-1 over the Capitals at SAP Center. Kunin, stationed near the slot, one-timed a pass from Justin Bailey past Capitals goalie Darcy Kuemper for his fifth goal of the season as the Sharks completed their three-game homestand with a 2-0-1 record. Bailey’s assist gave him his first NHL point since March 21, 2019. Earlier Monday, the Sharks announced they had signed Bailey to a one-year, two-way contract after he began the year with the Barracuda of the AHL. Fabian Zetterlund scored at even strength in the first period to give the Sharks a 1-0 lead and Mackenzie Blackwood had 33 saves in the win. The only blemish for Blackwood, if it could even be called that, was a second-period goal by Evgeny Kuznetsov. His shot

Los Angeles Receives $2.5M for Cool Streets Project in San Fernando Valley

Los Angeles Monday received $2.5 million in federal funding for cool pavement on 10 street segments throughout the San Fernando Valley, along with the construction and installation of up to 30 shade structures over benches at bus stops. The $2.5 million in federal dollars is fraction of the $93.5 million that officials said they’ve secured to provide cooling relief from the Valley’s sweltering heat. “We must use the tools we have to build a greater Los Angeles, and that starts with improving our city services,” Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass said at a news conference after receiving a ceremonial check from Rep. Tony Cárdenas, D-Panorama City. “This funding will be spent with purpose. New bus shelters will be located with purpose so that communities have relief from the heat and the worsening impacts of climate.”

Prayer vigil for peace held in Fresno amid Israel-Hamas war

Speakers rallied the crowd, encouraging them to contact elected officials to ask them to support an end to the Israel-Hamas war. Tuesday, November 28, 2023 7:22AM FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — More than 100 people filled Eaton Plaza in downtown Fresno Monday night to pray for peace. The group is thankful for the temporary humanitarian pauses but is calling for a permanent ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. “What’s going to happen? A couple of days of ease, and then we’re going to continue with the slaughter? We want something permanent,” said Hajj Reza Nekumanesh, a local Muslim Leader. Several speakers rallied the crowd, encouraging them to contact elected officials to ask them to support an end to the Israel-Hamas war. “I have to face each day knowing my tax dollars are being used to kill and torture my own people. I have to live with that,” said Layla Darwish, a Palestinian-American. Unrelated to Monday night’s prayer vigil in downtown Fresno, someone vandalized Congressman David Valadao’s Hanford office. He said it was anti-Israel protesters, saying in part: “I strongly support the right to peaceful protest, but violence

Suspect in 19-year-old Madera County woman’s death has criminal past, deputies say

MADERA COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) — The search for 19-year-old Melanie Camacho came to a tragic end following the discovery of her body just days after her car was found on fire. The Madera County Sheriff’s Office said Camacho’s remains were found in an orchard near Avenue 20, west of Highway 99. Officials say Camacho’s ex-boyfriend, 23-year-old Vicente Jasso, has been arrested for her death. Detectives discovered Jasso dated Camacho for three months before the two broke up a few days before Thanksgiving. The sheriff’s office said Camacho was last seen leaving her job at Auto Zone in Madera around 10:15 Friday night. Friends and coworkers told investigators she was going to see Jasso. Monday morning, he was taken into custody after leading deputies on a high-speed chase along Highway 99. Authorities said the suspect has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 2016. “He was arrested for fighting in public, he has multiple arrests for felony evading and reckless driving, he’s been arrested for trespassing, and in 2020 he was arrested for witness intimidation and violation of domestic violence restraining order,” said Madera County Sheriff

Kings River Packing shipping fruit across the US, Canada, and Mexico

FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) — Citrus season is now in full swing in the Central Valley. The smell of sweet oranges hits you as soon as you enter Kings River Packing in Sanger. The fruit moves quickly along the line, so it can be bagged under the Poppies label or a private label. Sales Manager Jesse Silva says 22 million boxes of citrus will be packed this year. This fruit is headed to local stores as well as retailers around the US, Canada and Mexico. “Demand has been off the charts. We’ve been seeing high demand for our mandarin varieties and also for the navels,” explained Silva. Sensors inside the packing house quickly grade fruit, which zips past. The citrus is even scanned for brix levels, showing how much sugar is in the fruit. “It can actually, through light detection that goes the fruit, we can actually sort fruit by sugar and by acid ratio,” Silva said. “That whole process is grading the size and quality of the fruit. We actually have over 20 different pictures of one piece of fruit.” The trees in the

Ex-boyfriend, friend arrested after missing 19-year-old Madera County woman found dead, deputies say

MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) — Two suspects have been arrested after a missing 19-year-old woman was found dead in Madera County. The Madera County Sheriff’s Office says Melanie Rios Camacho’s remains were found in an orchard off Avenue 20 west of Highway 99 in Madera County. “To the family of Melanie, we are deeply sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, especially as we approach Melanie’s 20th birthday, which would’ve been this Friday,” said Madera County Sheriff Tyson Pogue during a press conference Monday afternoon. Camacho was last seen leaving her job at Auto Zone in Madera around 10:15 pm Friday. Friends and coworkers told investigators she was going to see Vincente Alejandro Jasso, whom she had dated for three months and just broken up with three days before Thanksgiving. As detectives searched for Jasso, they soon discovered her car abandoned and on fire in a farm area off Avenue 14 near Road 8. Photos of Vicente Jasso (left) and Jose Lopez Hernandez (right) were provided by the Madera County Sheriff’s Office. “The witness witnessed a blue Ford Mustang with a black

Clippers implode in the fourth quarter against star-starved Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets on Monday were without the three indispensable cogs of last season’s championship run. Somehow the Clippers, despite playing at full strength, were missing even more. Unable to generate balanced scoring between their starting star trio of Paul George, James Harden and Kawhi Leonard, unable to hold onto a double-digit lead three times, and unable to keep Nuggets understudies Reggie Jackson and DeAndre Jordan from looking like the stars they replaced, the Clippers lost 113-104 to the short-handed Nuggets at Arena. The circumstances of their struggle made this a head-scratching mystery as much as a standard-fare loss. Denver (12-6) was playing on a second consecutive night and without Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon, all battling various physical ailments. The Clippers entered having won four of their previous five games. Improbably, the Nuggets’ hold on this series continued. Denver has won 11 of the last 12 games against the Clippers, who fell to 7-9. Jackson, a former Clipper traded last season, dribbled out the clock. Boos were few because so many fans had already left for the exits with 40 seconds
