Teachers must report when there are more than 30 students in the classroom. There are 16 classes in the District 60 that have, on average, 31 students enrolled. Teachers generally can handle one extra student and say it does not negatively impact the class. Meanwhile, those controversial Foundations Skills Assessment exams are due to be administered to all Grade 4 and 7 students in BC next week. However, teachers in several school districts still say they won’t administer the tests and, that could mean that principals may find themselves back in the classroom. On the Education front, there will be another stakeholders round table discussion today on class sizes and other issues facing both BC teachers and students.According to a new report, about 95 percent of classes in this province now have 30 or fewer students, and 99 percent of them, 32 or fewer.Education minister Shirley Bond is calling that a significant improvement from just three years ago but, acknowledges there’s need for more improvement. – Advertisement -However, she’s also rejecting the claim of the BC Teachers Federation, that the report is wrong and, the situation is actually getting worse, with more teachers in overcrowded classrooms. [asset|aid=859|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=a9c3ffd9e3fb1ef7a45a2ce75d077e0e-bond-sizes_1_Pub.mp3] Locally, numbers are close to the provinces average. Wonowon Elementary has the lowest enrollment in each class from Kindergarten through grade 7. The school’s grade 8 through 12 has well below normal numbers, with an average of 7 students per class.

Sophomore guard Mike Wilder has been clutch for the Wilson High boys basketball team all season long. And on Wednesday night against host Torrance in a CIF Southern Section wild-card matchup, he once again came through in the fourth quarter when the team needed an offensive burst. Wilder connected on 4 of 8 shots from the field, converted 2 of 3 3-pointers and went 5 of 6 from the free throw line to finish with 15 points, and he also grabbed nine rebounds. Junior guard Ryan Huntsman came up with 13 points and three steals for Wilson, which travels to Mater Dei at 7:30 p.m. on Friday for a first-round game. El Segundo 40, Bellflower 39 Six-foot-seven center Kevin Ryan of El Segundo High got a pass with 3.1 seconds left in the game and hit a 3-pointer from the corner to nip the host Buccaneers (10-17) in the wild card round of the CIF-SS Division I-AA playoffs. Up until that point, senior forward Ramon Williams, who finished with 15 points and eight boards, had Bellflower up by two points in the waning stages of the game. Woodcrest Christian 85, Avalon 59 With five minutes left, the two-year varsity letterman scored on a post move and then followed it up with a 3-pointer on a five-point run after the home team had cut a 10-point deficit. From that point on, Wilson was able to hold off several Torrance runs to prevail 62-47. “We had four bad shots,” Wilson coach Ted Hollister said about the stretch, “and they cut the lead to five points.” Avalon coach Steve Hall and the rest of the Lancers had to catch a boat leaving from Catalina Island on Wednesday at 11:45 a.m. to arrive in Long Beach at 1 p.m. Then they had to make a longer trek to Riverside to face off against Woodcrest Christian at 5 p.m. And of course, they got hung up in traffic for four hours before tip-off, and the game started a little late. The Lancers managed to stay close with Woodcrest for the first half, but a 23-point offensive outburst by the home team in the third quarter proved to be too much in the first round of the CIF-SS Division V-AA playoffs. Senior center Nick Radde pumped in 21 points and snared 10 rebounds to lead a balanced Lancers attack, which got 10 points and four assists from senior point guard Cesar Ocompo, and nine points apiece from senior forward Chaz Delehant and junior guard Mario Jimenez. The Lancers, who only trailed 35-29 at intermission, finished the season 13-7. “In the third quarter is where they got us,” Hall said. “They opened the game up and we couldn’t hang with them.” Hall was asked if the long commute hindered the team’s performance? “Thank God we have a nice group of kids, and we survived it,” said Hall, who had to coach 14 of his 20 games on the road and who will leave with his team this morning from the mainland to make it back to the island in time for school. “We are used to it. That’s one of those things we have to live with.” Boys soccer Westlake 1, Cabrillo 0 The Jaguars’ season came to end on a sour note in their Division I wild-card game. Host Millikan (15-10-1) failed to generate goals, and a goal by Danny Barrera in the 53rd minute proved to be the dagger. Girls soccer St. Joseph 1, El Rancho 0 Junior midfielder Lilly Flores scored the game’s only goal on an assist from senior Sonia Espitia in a Division IV wild-card game. Goalie Sabrina Rivera made five saves in the shutout. St. Joseph (8-6-3) travels to Paloma Valley for a first-round game Friday. Calvary Chapel Downey 4, Oxford Academy 0 Attie Pixler scored a pair of goals and added an assist for the Grizzlies (9-8-2) in a Division VI wild-card game. Shelly Hoekstra and Rachel Butler also scored for Calvary Chapel and goalie Michelle Garcia made 15 saves. The Grizzlies visit Mary Star at 6 p.m. Friday in a first-round game. Fullerton 7, Bellflower 1 The Bucs fell hard in their Division II wild-card game to finish with an overall record of 10-11. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SANTA CLARITA – Tenants’ names are still under wraps, but the developer of a former mule ranch at the southern gateway to the city plans to unveil plans next week for the upscale mall project. The layout for The Commons has changed some since the project was announced last March, but the basic premise has not. “It’s a mixed-use sort of urban village. It’s like The Grove except it has an office building, a hotel and residential units,” said Jeff Lambert, the planning consultant for property owners Jay and Joyce Rodgers, whose Monteverde Development Co. bought the 23-acre pasture in 2004. “It’s a pedestrian open-air plaza – that’s the Grove-like part.” A stylish Los Angeles shopping and entertainment mecca designed by Caruso Affiliated, The Grove adjoins the Farmers Market and features scores of shops, restaurants, a movie theater and dancing fountains modeled on those at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, plus scores of shops and restaurants. Lambert declined to reveal the architect for the ranch property but said it is not Caruso; Caruso’s office confirmed that. The adjacent Santa Clarita Athletic Club continues to be part of the project and should operate with no interruption in the meantime, Lambert said. The site’s visibility from Interstate 5 could snag the developer some potentially out-of-reach tenants. “There are several restaurants and retailers we would like to have here, but we don’t meet their demographic criteria with population – we do with median household income,” said Carrie Rogers, Santa Clarita’s economic development manager. “However, they’re making exceptions with the Smiser mule property with its freeway visibility to Interstate 5.” More than a quarter-million people go by on I-5 each day. With an annual median household income of $94,300, Santa Clarita residents soon will have more places to spend excess cash. Bristol Farms plans to break ground soon on its first Santa Clarita store, the anchor of a new shopping center on Newhall Ranch Road and McBean Parkway. And earlier this week, owners of the Westfield Valencia Town Center mall said they plan to expand the shopping center by almost one-third – to 1.3 million square feet – and build more parking garages. No new anchors are due, but Macy’s plans to add 50,000 square feet of floor space to its existing 145,000 square feet. As with many booming suburban towns, Santa Clarita’s influx of tracts has drawn retailers whose projects have erased the vestiges of an agrarian past. Back in the 1970s, the mule ranch was home to trucking company owner Sam Smiser’s herd of up to 30 signature mules, renowned for pulling floats in the Tournament of Roses parade. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 257-5255 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The roughly 600,000-square-foot project would include a hotel and office building, each up to 10 stories tall, a two-story anchor store, a multitude of shops and restaurants, a fitness center and 1,000 condos. Starting the week of April 2, community stakeholders – including nearby residents – will be invited in small groups to view the preliminary plans. A lone mule still grazes on the property and will be moved elsewhere when construction begins. Monteverde would need a conditional-use permit to erect 10-story buildings, which would exceed the 55-foot allowable height limit for the area. Lambert said the plans include solutions for flooding issues that could occur on the acreage, which is in a flood zone. He plans to meet with county flood control officials. The plan calls for roughly 5,000 parking spaces, mostly subterranean.

Nora KellyA WOMAN sued by her own mother and two brothers over lands in Co Donegal has won the right to keep it.Part-time farmer and nurse Nora Kelly had been left lands outside Letterkenny by her late uncle when he died in 2007. After six days of evidence, a judge today delivered a much-anticipated verdict in the case, ruling in favour of Mrs Kelly.Mrs Kelly’s mother Nora Gildea (89) had claimed possession of two fields and a cottage at Correnagh, 5kms from Letterkenny, claiming she was entitled to it as she was a joint tenant of the land with her brother William John Kennedy.Mr Kennedy however left the land in his will to his niece – and Mrs Gildea’s daughter – Nora Kelly when he died in 2007. Mrs Kelly had cared for Mr Kennedy for more than a decade before his death.The land has since been registered in her name.Two of Mrs Kelly’s brothers – Christopher and Daniel – also sued for parts of the property.Christopher wanted all the land left to his sister whilst Daniel sought possession of a shed.Dealing with Christopher Gildea’s claim to two of the folios of land Judge Mary Faherty said she was satisfied that he had never worked the land or had adverse possession of it for a period of 12 years or more.Judge Faherty said Christopher Gildea’s claims to the land “border on audacious.”The judge then dealt with a third piece of land claimed by Christopher Gildea and his mother Nora Gildea in which they claimed to be joint tenants of the land from 1973.Judge Faherty dismissed Nora Gildea’s claim and Christopher Gildea’s claim, saying they had not provided evidence of this.Turning to Dan Gildea’s claim to ownership of a shed, Judge Faherty said she was again satisfied that the shed was used by Mr Kennedy before his death and by Mrs Kelly.She said Dan Gildea never had sole use of the shed, which was a requirement of adverse possession.At earlier hearings the court had heard claims of intimidation by both sides of the family, including an incident in April last year when Mrs Kelly and her daughter Fiona had a confrontation in a field with Christopher Gildea and his brother in law James McMonagle. Each side claimed they were assaulted.In final submissions counsel Peter Nolan, for Mrs Kelly, said the only legitimate owner of the lands were his client.He said it was ‘the height of sexism’ that the Gildeas were seeking Mrs Kelly’s farm but not a piece of property left in the same will to her brother Jack Gildea.Mr Nolan likened the case to the novel ‘The Field’ saying that if author John B Keane were alive ‘he’d be here in Donegal writing about this.’Counsel for the Gildeas insisted they had adverse possession of the lands because they had worked as part of a family enterprise and that William John Kennedy had no right to leave the lands to anyone in his will.Lost the case: 89 yr old Nora Gildea at Letterkenny courthouse todayJudge Mary Faherty took one hour to dismiss the case.In court barrister Peter Nolan for Mrs Kelly applied for all costs in the case.He told Judge Faherty that the Kellys lives had been “nothing short of hell.”He said there was no legal justification for the claims of the Gildeas.Mr Nolan said there was “a mythology in Co Donegal” that each party should bear their own costs, but he said the costs must be awarded against the Gildeas.Sean MacAodha, barrister for Christopher and Daniel Gildea, said the family had been “torn apart” and an award of costs would counter any dim hopes of a reconciliation.Marshall McCloughan, solicitor for Mrs Nora Gildea, said the normal custom “in a genuine case” is that costs would not be awarded in such a case.Dan Gildea: Lost his caseHe said this was tradition and custom “in Donegal for many years.”Mr Nolan countered this was “a complete myth.”He went on: “The Gildeas had no case and it is obvious as the day is long there was no case.“There is no tradition in Donegal that costs should not follow the event.”Mr Nolan also asked for injunctions banning interference by the Gildeas on the lands of his client to be made permanent.He asked for an order to be made clear in particular against Mrs Gildea entering any of the lands owned by Mrs Kelly.Judge Faherty extended and granted the injunctions against Mrs Gildea, her sons and their families and ordered the removal of dogs, “rubbish” and cars from Mrs Kelly’s lands left there by the Gildeas.She said Mrs Kelly and Mrs Gildea should pay their own costs.However he ordered Christopher and Dan Gildea to pay half of Mrs Kelly’s costs.WOMAN SUED BY HER OWN MOTHER IN FARM DISPUTE WINS LANDMARK LEGAL CASE was last modified: June 14th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:gildeaKellyland disputeWOMAN SUED BY HER OWN MOTHER IN FARM DISPUTE WINS LANDMARK LEGAL CASE
The goal for Saturday’s homecoming game against Oregon State at the Rose Bowl is not to have the first-half lapses that led to the Bruins being outscored 65-35 before halftime. “I talked to coach Kerr and talked about that, and he’s open to what I had to say,” Havner said. “I thought maybe that the first three plays in practice, we need to be sharp again, try to make it like that’s the start of the game. I really don’t know. I’m looking for ideas. We need to start faster or it’s going to catch up with us if we don’t. It’s definitely inevitable.” Lewis leads the Bruins with 28 catches and four touchdowns, and his 15 career touchdown receptions are the most by a UCLA tight end. – It took about one play for hard-hitting free safety Chris Horton to make his first hit in his first practice since injuring his right wrist in training camp. “That’s what defenders do, hit people. It felt great,” Horton said. “I wouldn’t say I’m at my best, but I feel great.” Bruins coach Karl Dorrell said he expected Horton to play in the secondary, and possibly on special teams this week. – Linebacker Justin London sat out practice because of soreness in his surgically repaired right ankle, something brought on perhaps by playing on Washington State’s artificial surface. “His ankle is really sore,” Dorrell said. “Playing on that surface probably made it more significant.” However, Dorrell said he didn’t expect London to miss any game time. – Receiver Junior Taylor underwent successful surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Taylor is expected to be awarded a medical red-shirt and return as a fifth-year senior in 2006 … Havner was named one of 12 semifinalists for the Lombardi Award. — Brian Dohn can be reached at (818) 713-3607. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You let them know just to get moving quicker and to execute faster at the beginning of practice. That’s what I was doing, just encouraging a fast start to practice.” – Tight end Marcedes Lewis is UCLA’s biggest threat in the passing game, but he still goes spells where he isn’t utilized much. The Bruins threw to Lewis three times (he caught one) against Cal, and at Washington State the 6-foot-6, 260-pounder had two catches in the first three quarters and three catches in the final quarter. “My coach (assistant Jon Embree) tells me to keep my head in the game, and they’re going to come at me later to make plays,” Lewis said. “That’s what happened. I know when the ball is coming my way, I have to catch the ball and make a big play.” LOS ANGELES — UCLA linebacker Spencer Havner spoke with defensive coordinator Larry Kerr about beginning practice at a higher tempo, and quarterback Drew Olson got on teammates a little more about practicing with increased intensity. It is No. 8 UCLA’s way to try and combat its first-half woes the last three weeks. Although the Bruins won each game, they trailed by double digits in the fourth quarter each time.
EXCLUSIVE: The sister of an 83 year old woman who was set upon by a 28 year old thug who snatched her purse containing €1,250 has said she is glad the family’s ordeal is over.Frail Bridget McElchar was left terrified when heartless Monika Rostas approached her on December 23rd last as she did her last minute Christmas shopping in Ballybofey.Rostas, 28, shoved a copy of the Big Issue magazine into the pensioner’s face as she was coming out of a local butcher shop and then snatched her purse out of her hand. Mrs McElchar managed to get the purse back but the money had vanished and, but for €150 which fell on the ground, was never recovered.The court heard the money was passed to another woman who has not yet appeared in court.Rostas, a mother-of-three, with an address in Ballybofey, appeared at Letterkenny District Court on Monday last charged with robbery.Judge Paul Kelly described her actions as “despicable” and sentenced her to four months in prison but suspended it for a year on her own cash bond of €500. He also ordered that €1,500 of €2,000 lodged in court by Rostas’ family be given in compensation to the family of the late Mrs McElchar who passed away just four months after the brutal incident.Now a sister of Mrs McElchar, Rose McCrory (Harper) said she was just delighted that the family’s ordeal was over.Speaking from her home in Castlefin, Mrs McCrory said “We didn’t even know the court case was going ahead but I’m happy that it has all been sorted out.“Bridget was never the same after that happened to her and it’s good to know that the Gardai did get the person that took Bridget’s purse even though they never got her money back.”When told that Judge Kelly had ordered that €1,500 be given to Bridget’s family, Ms Harper said “That’s good. The family got her a lovely headstone but we can get her a nice mass said now with some of this money.” She added that Bridget was more than likely shopping for her bits and pieces on the day that she was accosted by Rostas.She added that although she suffered from mixed health, she was a very independent lady.“I remember when it happened to her. She would have been doing her bits and pieces and popping in and out of the shops – that’s why she had the money in her purse.“Sometimes her health was good and sometimes it wasn’t great but she got out and about and was very independent. And she added “I’m not sure why she had all that money with her on the day. She could have been buying some presents as it was just Christmas and she was very good like that.“Bridget was a lovely person and it’s just so sad that something like this happened to her. It ruined her Christmas.”Sister of lady robbed of €1,250 in Christmas attack glad family’s ordeal is over was last modified: September 28th, 2016 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)
