Metro raises bus, train fares

Posted on by

first_imgThe Metro board on Thursday voted to raise bus and train fares by an average 72 percent over the next four years – a move decried by critics as a blow to poor and ethnic communities that depend on public transportation the most. The plan gradually increases fares every two years beginning July 1, when day passes rise to $5 from $3, weekly passes jump to $17 from $14 and monthly passes spike to $62 from $52. One-way fare hikes won’t come until July 1, 2009, when they increase from the current $1.25 to $1.50. “No one wanted to see a fare increase, and it’s probably true that we’ll probably lose some riders,” said county Supervisor Gloria Molina, who co-authored the plan with Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky. “But I think in the long run, we owe to this community a stable organization.” “I voted against this proposal because it puts too much of a burden on public transit riders and not enough in reducing other operational capital projects and securing money from the state,” Villaraigosa said. The plan also puts up to 25 bus lines at risk of being cut for low ridership. The riders’ union pushed for the now-expired federal consent decree against Metro that forced the agency to spend $1.3 billion on bus service. Throughout the 6 1/2 hours of public testimony Thursday, union members lambasted the board with claims of racial inequality and said the transit agency’s deficit was being balanced on the backs of minorities, a significant portion of the public transportation agency’s riders. “You have yet to look at options that do not harm bus riders,” said organizer Manuel Criollo. Ready for court Molina’s plan is less drastic than one proposed earlier by Metro CEO Roger Snoble, which could have steeply hiked some prices by between 66 and 400 percent over the next two years. His plan would have knocked down the troublesome deficit in three years. He said the agency has prepared for a lawsuit. “We are likely destined for court,” Snoble said. “We do feel that with any court challenge, we can be successful.” Iffy Capitol promises After meeting with Sacramento officials on Wednesday, Villaraigosa said he got a commitment for some of the $230 million in spillover money – a portion of money that comes from sales tax on gasoline – that would go to Los Angeles County. But Metro stands to lose in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposed state budget. Villaraigosa said there was also growing opposition among lawmakers to Schwarzenegger’s call to divert $1.3 billion in spillover funds from public transportation to other projects. But some other board members said it was not wise to count on promises when they come from Sacramento, which county Supervisor Michael Antonovich said “could evaporate in smoke.” Earlier, about 375 people – grandmothers, bicyclists, high school students, college students – pleaded their cases before the board. So many filled the building that at one point Fire Department officials shut it down until people left. “I’m black. I’m disabled. I’m old, and I’m poor,” said Cissie Gusheloff, 53, of Hollywood. “Please don’t raise the bus fares. We can’t afford it.” Car culture Under the approved plan, seniors 65 and older and disabled can ride buses and rails for 25 cents during off-peak hours. The reduced rate applies from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then after 7 p.m. during the week, and on all day on weekends. The rate eventually increases to 35 cents by 2011. Downtown resident Mary Hendra testified out of concern that fare hikes could prevent motorists from using public transportation, something she uses three times a week. “We have a car culture and a structure built around automobiles,” said the 37-year-old Hendra. Roger Christensen of Sherman Oaks stood in opposition to the boisterous crowd and said fare increases were necessary. “We feel it’s necessary, reasonable and long overdue,” said the 61-year-old chairman of the Metro Citizen Advisory Council. “We have to face the structural deficit. I don’t want the agency to go broke.” sue.doyle@dailynews.com (818) 713-3746160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The fare hikes are designed to level the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s stubborn structural deficit in up to eight years. Metro faces a $1.8 billion deficit over the next 10 years. But the Bus Riders Union, representing poor and minority passengers, called the hikes “racist” and threatened lawsuits to revoke the increases. “We have the moral responsibility to stand up against racism,” said Lisa Adler, an organizer for riders-rights group. The plan was tougher than one put forward by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who called for an annual 5 percent increase on fares over the next five years. His plan would collect additional money from the state and borrow to keep the transit agency afloat. Villaraigosa and his three appointees on the board voted against the plan, which won by a 9-4 vote. last_img read more

SOCCER: DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES

Posted on by

first_imgGlencar Inn Division Two Glenree United Reserves 1 Keadue Rovers Reserves 2Keadue Rovers had an encouraging win against Glenree at Central Park on Saturday. On what was a very cold day for football it was Keadue who were quick out of the blocks with striker Darragh Hanlon showing well up front. In the fifteenth minute the home side took the lead when Mark Sweeney flicked in a near post header from a corner. By twenty minutes Keadue were well on top and from a free kick, which came off the post, Damien Hanlon was on hand to knock it into the net from close range. Glenree had a good closing fifteen minutes to the half having a couple of long range strikes on goal. They were rewarded on the half time whistle, when following a header which was well saved by Keadue keeper Ben Boyle, Owen McLaughlin followed up with a close range effort to make it 2-1. Into the second half and it was mostly Glenree on the attack with Keadue playing a holding game. Apart from a couple of runs in behind the home defence, Glenree didn’t have any clear cut chances or force the home keeper into any saves. The home side held out for a good victory. A good display by both teams in difficult conditions. Darragh Hanlon was standing out for Keadue Rovers.Referee: Paul Doherty. Donegal Town Reserves 5 Gweedore United Reserves 2Donegal Town maintained their promotion push with a solid home performance against Gweedore United. Donegal dominated the early stages and deservedly took the lead when Joe McIntyre whipped the ball across the area for Gary Ward to hammer home at the far post. Sloppy defending allowed Gweedore back into the game as a misplaced pass out of defence from Donegal allowed Stephen O’Donnell to level things up with a fine finish from the edge of the area. Gweedore looked dangerous and created some good chances but it was the home side that went in ahead at the break when David Bustard prodded home a well placed through ball from Kevin Devaney. The stand out moment in the game came just after half time from Donegal’s left winger McIntyre. Upon receiving the ball in his own half, he bobbed and weaved his way past several defenders before coolly slotting the ball past the Gweedore ‘keeper to make it 3-1. Gweedore pulled a goal back when Joe Coyle broke the offside trap to put the game back in the balance. Donegal responded well and McIntyre restored the home side’s two goal advantage when his cross found its way into the back of the net. The win was sealed moments from time when substitute Paddy O’ Kennedy was taken down when through on goal. The subsequent penalty was dispatched by Donegal’s talisman Bustard to seal the victory. Good team performances from both sides with Joe McIntyre standing out for the hosts. Referee: John Mc Glanaghey.Milford United Reserves 1 Deele Harps 3Deele took another step towards the title with this win in Moyle View. Deele had the better of the opening exchanges and on twenty minutes Shane Gallagher opened his account with a smart finish. The goal spurred Milford into action and they came back into the game when good work by Lee Burke on the wing ended with Ciran Blaney firing home from a tight angle. Milford were then unlucky not to go ahead when Lee Burke hit the post. There was nothing to choose between the teams in the second half until Dermot Shiels struck a speculative shot which caught the keeper off his line and finished in the net. Milford went for broke and were caught when Gallagher netted his second to finish off the game.Downtown United 4 Tullyvinney Rovers 1Downtown United took the lead on 26minutes when Charles McLaughlin slotted home from 5yards. Tullyvinney Rovers equalised from the penalty spot on 31minutes when Redmond Doherty was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the Downtown United box. Garvin Tinney put the penalty away despite the best efforts of the Downtown keeper. Downtown regained the lead with 5minutes left in the first half. A great through ball from Gio People to Niall Bonner who raced clear and coolly slotted it past the outrushing Tullyvinney keeper.Downtown started the second half brightly with both Krissi McLaughlin and Niall Bonner going close for the home side. Downtown capitalised on their great start to the second half when Charles McLaughlin scored a 30 yard volley to put them 3-1 ahead. The Scoring was rounded off by the home sides’ Captain Redmond Doherty with a diving header from a great cross from the left boot of Niall Bonner. Best for Downtown was Niall Bonner while Garvin Tinney was best for TullyvinneyBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier Division Glenea United 4 Milford United 5In blustery conditions it was Milford who came out on top in the dying moments. The home side started brightly and pressed hard for the opening goal. They were rewarded on 25 minutes when Paul Sweeney was on hand to force the ball home after a scramble in the box after a corner. Milford equalized on 28 minutes when Peter Doherty was played through and he rounded the keeper to slot the ball home. Glenea regained the lead on the stroke of halftime. Ryan McFadden saw his initial effort well saved by the away keeper but Michael Barry was on hand slot home the rebound. In the 2nd half Milford started well and equalised on 60 minutes when Peter Doherty got on the end of a long throw to fire the ball into the net. Milford started to take control of the game and took the lead on 65 minutes when Joey Conlon drilled home from the edge of the area. Glenea got back into the game on 75 minutes when Brian Cuffe scored with an overhead kick from a Shane Ferry cross. Glena regained the lead on 90 minutes when Michael Barry slid the ball in at the near post after good work by John Mc Garvey. However in injury time all the home side’s good work was undone as Milford scored two goals to take victory. Mark Flood headed home at the back post and Brendan Murray drilled the ball home after a scramble to give his side victory. Best for Glena were John Harley and Sean Maguire, while Peter Doherty and PJ Hagan were best for Milford. Referee: Marty Mc GarrigleDunkineely Celtic 0 Rathmullan Celtic 2Dunkineely’s fight for survival in the Premier Division suffered a setback with this two nil defeat at home to Rathmullan Celtic. The scoreline does not reflect the effort and good play of the home team who despite conceding in the possession stakes created the better chances. The first half was a rather tame affair with neither team really dominating. Rathmullan had plenty of possession but never really troubled the home defence which restricted them to a few long range efforts. The best effort of the half came from Adrian Nesbitt for the home side whose curling shot from 18 yards was expertly tipped away by the visiting keeper. The game changed in a thirty second spell on 50 minutes. A Dunkineely corner was headed against the underside of the bar by Aaron Byrne and hit the keeper on the head before being cleared. Rathmullan broke and Oisin Mc Menamin beat the keeper to a long ball and lobbed it into the net. Despite this setback Dunkineely still kept playing good attacking football and created a number of openings. Martin Cunningham saw his shot well saved by the keeper on 68 minutes. Paul Mc Fadden and Patrick White had good efforts on goal go narrowly wide as the home side pressed for a way back into the game. Rathmullan got their second when a misplaced pass out of defence was picked up by Paddy Sheridan who played in Eamonn Sheridan who beat the keeper from 12 yards. Despite their endeavours Dunkineely could not find a way through and must now hope to get points in their remaining three games to at least make the playoffs.Best for Rathmullan were Shay Coyle and Eamonn Sheridan. For Dunkineely Aiden Duddy and Aaron Byrne were best. Referee Ed MooreWatson Hire Division OneKeadue Rovers 1 Donegal Town 2Donegal Town came to Central Park on Easter Sunday and took away all three points in a deserved but hard fought victory. Played in tough, windy conditions, Keadue fielded an unfamiliar line up and it was Donegal Town, playing with the advantage of the strong wind who were the dominant team and set about knocking the ball around to good effect and forcing home keeper Danny Rodgers into a few good saves early on. They took the lead of fifteen minutes when a free kick from left back Danny Mc Garrigle found the net directly. They were still on top and had good chances in both the twentieth and twenty fifth minutes to increase their lead but Keadue remained dogged throughout, defending in numbers. The home side retained possession a little better after that but it was still Donegal who were forcing the home keeper into saves from long range efforts and set pieces. Into the second half and with the wind behind them Keadue were more positive and were rewarded in the fiftieth minute when, from a good passing move in midfield, Sean Bonner hit a great effort to the top corner to make it 1-1. Donegal Town however to their credit were straight on the attack again and were the better team for the next twenty minutes creating a few good chances and pinning the home team back. They went ahead again on seventy two minutes when Declan Browne reacted quickest to a through ball and his shot flew into the corner of the net. For the final fifteen minutes Keadue made a big push for the equaliser, pushing extra men up front but despite plenty of ball, just couldn’t fashion a clear effort on goal and it was Donegal who held out for the victory.A decent game of football in tricky conditions with team efforts from both sides.Referee: Gerry Gallagher.Ulster CupMoville Celtic 2 Lifford Celtic 1NO REPORT AVAILABLEDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE – RESULTSGlencar Inn Division TwoGlenree United Reserves 1 v 2 Keadue Rovers ReservesDonegal Town Reserves 5 v 2 Gweedore United ReservesMilford United Reserves 1 v 3 Deele HarpsDowntown United 4 v 1 Tullyvinney RoversBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionGlenea United 4 v 5 Milford UnitedDunkineely Celtic 0 v 2 Rathmullan CelticWatson Hire Division OneKeadue Rovers 1 v 2 Donegal TownUlster CupMoville Celtic 2 v 1 Lifford CelticDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEFIXTURESSATURDAY 6-4-2013 K.O. 2 p.m. (Unless Stated)Old Orchard Inn Division OneMulroy Celtic v Fintown Harps AFCGlencar Celtic v Kilmacrennan Celtic ReservesGlenea United Reserves v Castlefin Celtic ReservesGlencar Inn Division TwoCranford United Reserves v Tullyvinney RoversDeele Harps v Keadue Rovers ReservesGweedore United Reserves v Downtown UnitedSUNDAY 7-4-2013 K.O. 2 p.m. (Unless Stated)Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionLifford Celtic v Rathmullan CelticWatson Hire Division OneDrumoghill FC v Arranmore UnitedCurragh Athletic v Ballybofey UnitedRaphoe Town v Cappry RoversKeadue Rovers v Cranford UnitedEany Celtic v Donegal TownCT Ball Division TwoConvoy Arsenal v Kerrykeel’71 FCBonagee United v Drumbar FCWhitestrand United v Gweedore UnitedGlenree United v Dunlewy CelticLetterbarrow Celtic v Copany RoversKnockalla Caravans Cup 2013Swilly Rovers v Dunkineely CelticGlenea United v Letterkenny RoversGlengad United v Kilmacrennan CelticMilford United v Kildrum TigersWEDNESDAY 10-4-2013 K.O. 6.30p.m.Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKilmacrennan Celtic v Rathmullan CelticGlencar Inn Division TwoDeele Harps v Downtown UnitedMilford United Reserves v Cranford United ReservesSOCCER: DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES was last modified: March 31st, 2013 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)Tags:Donegal LeaguefixturesResultslast_img read more

Steaua boss denies ‘annihilate’ jibe came back to haunt his side

At this level if you’re not 100% concentrating, the opposition score goals.“We conceded on our set piece but John Terry took that very well.“There were other moments – the foul on Hazard [for the free-kick for Terry’s goal] and Mata should not have been allowed to have taken the shot, but this is it at this level.“The second goal was a very crucial moment in the game.“We had an important moment in the 45th minute when we drew level. We had a few more chances but we didn’t score goals.“Congratulations to Chelsea who played very well in the second half.”See also:Blues through after second-leg comebackBenitez hails Torres after Chelsea 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
