Supervisor Barger Questions Election Irregularities Which Left 118,552 County Voters Off Rosters

first_img At Wednesday’s meeting of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Kathryn Barger questioned L.A. County Registrar Dean C. Logan after learning that 118,522 voters’ names were accidentally left off rosters due to a printing error during yesterday’s primary election.Logan said he would look into the problem to determine the reason for the printing error, but Barger, who reported that a number of voters had called her office and used social media to report issues and concerns, questioned Logan as to why effective quality assurance processes were not in place around the printed rosters.“It is imperative that we understand what happened and how to prevent it in the future,” Barger said. “Our elections represent the cornerstone of our democratic process, and it is unfortunate that this incident may erode public confidence in our system. A thorough and comprehensive investigation is only the first step we must take to begin rebuilding the public trust.”Although voters whose names are missing were encouraged to file provisional ballots which would be verified later, the Registrar estimates about 2.3 percent of the county’s 5.1 million registered voters and 35 percent of the county’s 4,357 precincts were affected by the error.

Long Island Mosque Tackles Radicalization with Message of Hope

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York In what could be considered a call to action for Long Island Muslims, a prominent Imam from Egypt on Friday encouraged the congregation at a Westbury mosque to rise above the challenges facing the community amid a rise of both Islamophobia and extremism.“We know as good practicing Muslims we should not bury our heads in the sand,” Sheikh Ibrahim Negm, visiting scholar from Al Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, told the congregation at the Islamic Center of Long Island during his sermon on Friday. “Rather, we should rise to meet the difficult challenges we are facing.”Negm, an advisor to the Grand Mufti of Egypt, has headlined a three-day lecture series at the ICLI this week that concludes Saturday night.Titled “Upholding Moderation & Resisting Radicalization,” the series hopes to reach out to young people and anyone else in the community disheartened by anti-Muslim rhetoric whipping through the media and American politics.The ICLI, which last year launched an interfaith institute, has spearheaded efforts to address Islamophobia with educational services and events that focus on religious solidarity. The mosque has also been instrumental in addressing misconceptions about the religion and has vocally condemned attacks by bloodthirsty extremists groups like the self-proclaimed Islamic State.Muslims are often criticized for not doing enough to impede a person’s path toward radicalization. The ICLI is taking the proactive step of addressing the issue by empowering those within the community.In an interview, Negm said the purpose of his sermon was to present a framework that the community can use to be more involved. He admitted that he does not have all the answers.As someone who does not live in the community, Negm said, “I cannot suggest practical steps” but rather a “framework” that will guide congregants forward.“We are facing…whether we are talking about this part of the world or globally, we are facing imminent challenges as Muslims,” Negm told the packed mosque.He reminded Islam’s adherents that such speed bumps are ingrained in the religion—tests that every Muslim must confront.“We shall be visited with trial and tribulations,” Negm said, citing the Koran. He added, “Life on this planet Earth is a testing ground.”It’s normal for people to feel anguish over Islamophobic remarks, but it’s important not to fall into a state of despair, Negm explained.“Don’t get overwhelmed by what we are going through,” he added.Negm stopped short of instructing the community about how to act as a collective voice, opting instead to inspire change on a local level.“Are we doing the homework or are we just passing the buck?” he asked, rhetorically. “We should take ownership of the situation we are experiencing and see what we can do.”The third and final installment of the ICLI’s “Upholding Moderation & Resisting Radicalization” series is Saturday at 7:15 p.m. 835 Brush Hollow Rd., Westbury.last_img read more

Sammie’s birdie wins title in last-hole thriller

first_img6 Aug 2015 Sammie’s birdie wins title in last-hole thriller Cornwall’s Sammie Giles holed a 15-foot birdie putt on the last hole to clinch a one-shot win in the English women’s open stroke play championship at St Annes Old Links in Lancashire.She pipped Yorkshire’s Rochelle Morris who birdied the last two holes in a thrilling finale to the event – and who has now been runner-up in both English women’s championships this year.Giles, 20, (image © Leaderboard Photography) and Morris shared the halfway lead and battled throughout 36 holes today to decide the destination of the trophy.Giles shot one-under 71 and 73 for a one-over total, while Morris returned 73 72 and finished a stroke behind.The win gives Giles her second national title, following her success in last year’s English mid-amateur championship. “That’s pretty cool!” she said. “The mid-amateur was really big for me, especially as I beat Sarah-Jane (Boyd, a fellow Cornwall player).“But this is bigger, especially as my old coach, Laura Eastwood (now Hendrikson) won this event on this course 10 years ago – so it’s really special to win it here.”When the two players set out this afternoon Giles held a two-shot lead over Morris and the last round turned into a match play situation. The momentum swung to and fro, but Giles was always in front and had a four shot lead after six holes.But her lead was cut to one after she bogeyed nine and 10, which Morris birdied,. Again Giles built up an advantage and crucially birdied the 14th to be three ahead. “I really needed that and I think it put a lot of pressure on Rochelle,” she said.However, Morris kept working away at the deficit. She parred the 15th, which Giles bogeyed, and birdied the long 17th to be just one behind.On the 18th,  a par five, both players were just short of the green in two. Giles slightly mis-hit her pitch and it pulled up 15ft short, while Morris played a lovely shot which finished about 3ft from the hole. The pressure was on, but Giles rose to the challenge and slotted home the putt: “I knew I had to get it right so I gave it a little extra time, I felt confident – and it went in! Rochelle played really well and finished birdie, birdie, it was a great effort.”Third place was shared by Scotland’s Lauren Whyte and Elizabeth Stebbings (Formby Ladies’) on eight over par. One shot further back in fifth place were Lianna Bailey (Kirby Muxloe) and Bethany Garton (Royal Lytham & St Annes).Click here for full scoreslast_img read more

€6M Greencastle water upgrade complete

first_imgA vital upgrade to the Greencastle public water supply is now complete, Irish Water has confirmed.The project, which involved a €6 million investment from Irish Water, has altered the treatment of water from the Eddie Fullerton Pollan Dam to ensure better quality for the people of Greencastle.The Greencastle water treatment plant will be decommissioned and water from the Eddie Fullerton Pollan Dam will now l be treated at the Illies Water Treatment Plant before being delivered into the network supplying Greencastle and East Inishowen. The change will deliver better quality and a more reliable supply of water to the Greencastle supply, which is currently on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Remedial Action List (RAL) for elevated levels of trihalomethanes (THMs).Diane Carroll, Irish Water explained further the scope of the project: “The upgraded water supply scheme will safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses currently served by the existing Greencastle Water Treatment Plant. The supply from this plant will be replaced by the supply from the East Inishowen Regional Water Supply Scheme (RWSS). This has been enabled by an extension of the Pollan RWSS to East Inishowen, allowing the East Inishowen RWSS to now supply Greencastle.“The scope of works completed included the laying of over 10km of new water main, the construction of a new reservoir and associated booster station. This transfer of supply from the Greencastle Water Treatment plant to the Illies Water Treatment Plant will provide a more robust treatment system.” €6M Greencastle water upgrade complete was last modified: November 21st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more
