Going for the Gold: Holden Introduces Legislation that Would Extend Gold Line to Ontario Airport

Prior to his election to the Pasadena City Council, Holden served on the Pasadena Light Rail Alignment Task Force established in 1985 to identify the light rail route alternatives in Pasadena. He is a former board president of the Burbank- Glendale- Pasadena Airport Authority where he served as a commissioner for 20 years.AB 2011 would create the West San Bernardino County Rail Construction Authority that would be responsible for designing and building the extension from Montclair to the Airport. The new construction authority would include representation from the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Ontario International Airport Authority, and the cities of Montclair, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, and Ontario.The current Metro Gold Line extension is already set to reach San Bernardino County with new stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont, and Montclair.The current terminus planned for Montclair, however, is just six miles short of the Ontario International Airport – a critical airport and economic driver for San Bernardino, Riverside, and parts of Los Angeles Counties,“The Ontario International Airport is a convenient and rapidly expanding traveling option for many residents across San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. Though we have seen significant progress in the extension of the Foothill Gold Line, which is planned to terminate in the transit center in the City of Montclair, there is no definitive plan to connect passengers from the transit center to the airport,” said Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez. “Creating a nexus between Montclair’s transit center and the Ontario airport is a monumental endeavor, and will require a dedicated construction authority whose sole purpose is constructing a connection that will best serve both San Bernardino and Los Angeles County residents.”Holden chairs the Select Committee on Regional Transportation Solutions. This committee explores solutions to improve multi-modal interconnectivity between communities, establish sustainable transportation infrastructure, and relieve traffic congestion. He plans to hold his next Select Committee Informational Hearing at Ontario City Hall on Friday. One of the panels will discuss the economic and environmental benefits of multimodal and interregional connections to Burbank and Ontario airports.Holden has already submitted a budget request to Governor Gavin Newsom for LA Metro to study the feasibility of an extension to the Hollywood Burbank Airport.“As a former City Council Member and Mayor of Pasadena, I championed early efforts to establish the Metro Gold Line, which turned out to be more successful than anyone anticipated just like the recent extension to Azusa,” said Holden. “Extending the Gold Line to Ontario Airport will propel both San Bernardino County and Los Angeles County into our new transportation future” HerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Most Influential Women In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeauty Make a comment Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Cuban training to ‘help national health’

first_img20 November 2012A group of medical students who left for training in Cuba on Monday will be able to assist with the roll-out of South Africa’s National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme when they return, says KwaZulu-Natal Premier Zweli Mkhize.Mkhize was speaking at King Shaka International Airport in Durban during a farewell function for the 115 students who were selected to study medicine in Cuba as part of the South Africa-Cuba Medical Training Programme.The programme was started 16 years ago.Mkhize said the provincial government regarded the students as assets that would transform public health in the province and the rest of country.“Upon completion of their studies, they will be at the forefront of the implementation of NHI in various health institutions,” Mkhize said.Improving the quality of health services“For the public to use the publicly funded NHI services in the public and private sector, the quality of health services must improve and these students will assist in this regard.”He added that the disparity in resource distribution between the public and private health sector and consequent inequities in access to care continued and that government had a responsibility to ensure that barriers to access to quality health care for all were removed.“These students have been selected from all districts in the province with the assistance of mayors and district Aids Councils,” he said.“They are fully aware that they all represent the aspirations of poor people who cannot afford medical aid in order to access quality healthcare.”About 143 students in the province have left for Cuba already and more than 60 are expected to leave over the next two days.Mkhize said the main target as the KwaZulu-Natal government was to train more medical students in order to increase the current output of doctors produced each year by the country.KwaZulu-Natal has been ardently implementing key interventions and activities as part of the preparatory work for the implementation of NHI.As part of the pilot process, the province has also been testing components that focus on improving financial management capacity and systems at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital and King Edward VIII Academic Hospital.Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

UEFA Champions League Final: Cardiff party yet to reach fever pitch as fans trickle in

first_imgTwenty minutes stroll along the River Taff from the stadium that will host Saturday’s Champions League final neat rows of tents stretch out across a picturesque park awaiting occupation.On the eve of the biggest football match ever staged in Cardiff, the expected invasion by fans of Real Madrid and Juventus was not materialising as locals went about their Friday morning business in peace.It was a similar story in Cardiff’s city centre where small groups of Spanish and Italian fans ambled about in replica football shirts enjoying the castle views and a sip of beer.Fever pitch it most definitely was not.Some estimates said the showdown between two of Europe’s grandest old clubs would see 150,000 extra people swarm in.But either they are leaving it late or the scare stories of Cardiff running out of accommodation appear to have kept the numbers down. Either way the Welsh capital’s local businesses are in danger of missing an open goal.”Cardiff council originally wanted us to set up a campsite for 10,000 people,” Rhian Evans, owner of Camping Ninja, told Reuters as her staff dealt with a trickle of arrivals.”In reality we are looking at maybe 1,000. There appears to not be the appetite for staying in Cardiff that people anticipated. I think people have been encouraged to stay elsewhere. It’s put people off coming in.”I hear the hotels are full in Bristol and Swansea even. All the hostels here are slashed their prices. Cardiff is not full.”While there is plenty on offer in Cardiff, especially in the Bay area where fans can enjoy a floating football pitch or marvel at an enormous inflatable Champions League trophy, the football festival is taking a while to fire up.advertisementLocal police officers reported the streets around the iconic National Stadium of Wales, in the heart of the city, as quieter than a usual Friday afternoon and way down on Six Nations rugby weekends when for two days the myriad bars are crammed.TRANQUIL ATMOSPHEREA huge security operation with many roads closed to traffic added to the tranquil atmosphere with uniformed police, some armed, outnumbering fans. With memories of last week’s Manchester bombing all to vivid, about 6,000 officers will be deployed in the city from Thursday to Saturday.”This is undoubtedly the biggest sporting event that Cardiff has ever hosted but I’m sure with our partners we’ll host a really enjoyable and secure event,” South Wales Police assistant constable Richard Lewis told Reuters.”The scrutiny and the eyes of the world are upon us.”With hundreds of fans jetting in on special charter flights on Saturday morning – some flying back after the match — and trains running to London until the small hours of Sunday morning, many will have just a fleeting Cardiff experience.But those who have made the trip – even without tickets for the match – are determined to enjoy themselves with whatever Cardiff has to offer, even the drizzle.Rafael Sanchez and his wife Lina trudged into the campsite on Friday having arrived from Bogota, Colombia via London.”We just wanted to enjoy the atmosphere,” Rafael said. “We are supporting both teams in a way because Jean Cuadrado plays for Juventus and James for Real. But we really want Juve.”With no giant screens erected for fans without tickets to come together, they planned to watch the game in a bar.”That’s the point of the trip, to drink some Welsh beer,” he said. “I hear they have one called Brains!”They could even end up at the Elevens Bar and Grill – a swish venue owned by none other than Real Madrid’s Cardiff-born Gareth Bale. Several Madridistas had already discovered it.”I hear Bale will bring the team here if they win,” said Ramon Perez while enjoying a pint with his Atletico Madrid-supporting girlfriend Carla.last_img read more
