Guiliani seeking state GOP support for presidential bid

You’re all set! “Presidents make decisions and move things forward,” he said. “That’s the kind of president I would like to be.” Giuliani had taken another step in that direction Monday when he filed a “statement of candidacy” with the Federal Election Commission. During a news conference after his speech, Giuliani, who has faced questions about his commitment to the 2008 race, was asked, “Are you in this for good?” “Yes, I am committed,” he said. “This is something I believe I can bring something to, from the experiences that I’ve had.” On a day when a leading Democrat, Sen. Barack Obama, announced his presidential bid by invoking Abraham Lincoln, Giuliani said Lincoln’s legacy, holding the nation together through the Civil War, really belonged to Republicans. SACRAMENTO – Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani received a warm welcome Saturday from California GOP activists, who responded to his strong leadership in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Being mayor, he said at the California Republican Party convention, “prepares you as best you can be prepared to be the president of the United States.” Giuliani spoke for nearly 45 minutes – touching on health care, crime, terrorism and Iraq – in a speech laden with references to a possible bid for president. He mocked alleged inaction in Washington, saying he would be a decisive leader. last_img read more

Redondo is good as Gold

first_imgGIRLS VOLLEYBALL: The Sea Hawks defeat Santa Margarita to win Redondo Power Classic. By David Saunders STAFF WRITER Megan Saraceno and Devon Dykstra each had 11 kills to help host Redondo power through a familiar foe in Santa Margarita, 25-14, 25-20, to capture the Gold Division crown of the Redondo Power Classic Tournament. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Redondo beat Santa Margarita in the CIF Southern Section Division I-AA semifinals last season and edged it in the Durango Tournament this year. It was also the third consecutive time the Sea Hawks faced Santa Margarita in their own tournament final, so this was a rubber match of sorts. “We won two years ago and they won last year,” Redondo outside hitter Megan Saraceno said. “This group of seniors was 1-1 against them and we wanted to go out being 2-1.” Another senior, setter Lauren Allen, fed Saraceno and Dykstra regularly on the left side. The result, more often than not, was a kill. “Lauren was doing really well by keeping their middle off guard and giving us 1-on-1 on the outside. Our offense all came from her,” Saraceno said. Kenna Crouse had eight kills and Lauren Ciszek added five for Santa Margarita, which was overmatched at the net. Molly Goldbach had four blocks for Redondo. The balls she wasn’t able to stuff were usually dug out by Dykstra and her sister Lara, who had nine apiece to lead the team. Santa Margarita’s Christina Berry served three straight aces in the middle of Game 2 to draw her team within two, but Redondo didn’t allow the Eagles to narrow the gap any further. The two teams traded points until Taylor Moore’s kill ended a lengthy rally in which both teams handled the ball seven times. Saraceno promptly put away the game’s final point on the following play. Redondo had gone on an even longer streak to close Game 1, recording six straight points, four of which came on hitting errors by Santa Margarita. Allen and Saraceno were named tournament co-MVPs. Dykstra and Jessica Kalama also received all-tournament honors. All four players are entering the stretch run of their senior season, which they hope to punctuate with a win over visiting Mira Costa Thursday. “Everyone expects greatness from us. This win was very important because it is the starting point of the biggest part of our season,” Dykstra said. “I was really pleased with our performance. We had talked about playing with greater discipline and I felt we were in our spots and ready for any kind of a play,” Redondo coach Tommy Chaffins said. “If we continue to do that, we’re going to be tough to put the ball down against.” david.saunders@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Most readers favor shared use of nature trails

first_img– JIM LEGGE Rancho Palos Verdes A few hikers and a few mountain bikers are a problem. The many other hundreds of hikers and mountain bikers are happy to share the trails and don’t forget the horse people also sharing. There seems to be an issue with a few power-hungry people (who believe) the trails are theirs. Remember, the land is for everybody, not just a few people. Does anybody realize that people need to get out and ride or walk every day for the health of themselves and society as a whole? Without naming certain names, a few have created a lot of stress to ban mountain biking. These few should go visit the rest of the planet and see how lucky they are to live where they have open land and to share it with (others) who know they are lucky to have the open land and enjoy it. – MITCH BERGER Torrance Yes, mountain bikes should be allowed on the trails. Mountain bikes do no more harm to trails than hiking, and less than horses. (There are many studies to support this.) Damage to trails, whether it be from mountain bikes, hiking boots or horse hooves, can be mitigated and repaired. Banning mountain biking from the trails is prejudicial and has shown to exacerbate conflict. And it wouldn’t do much to mitigate damage to the environment. As a member of Conejo Open Space Trails Advisory Committee (in Thousand Oaks) I know that mountain biking can absolutely coexist with other trail users because there is open dialogue, inclusion and cooperation, not an atmosphere of exclusion, bans and conflict. – MARK LANGTON Newbury Park I think it should be strictly foot traffic. It’s just too much otherwise, and the environment would be so much better. – CAROL BARKER Hawthorne Science and ecological studies have shown that, with very few exceptions, well-designed public trails support mountain biking without any abnormal or unusual wear. As a mountain biker for years, and an early member and longtime coordinator for the volunteer trail maintenance program of a nonprofit group, I believe those of us from all user groups who have at heart the love, respect and quest to go out and enjoy our natural surroundings should work together to keep the outdoors open to us. We might even be helping invite the next generation out to take part in what we’ve found. – RICH PINDER Van Nuys Mountain bikes do little harm to the trails, much less than a horse, and about as much as a hiker. The weight of the rider and bike is spread over two wheels with a wide contact area to the trail, which results in a low impact to it. Regular trail use by mountain bikers helps keep existing trails accessible to hikers. – GREGORIO DE HARO Torrance Not only I am a mountain biker, but (I am) also backpacker, hiker and Sierra Club member. I have been mountain biking in Palos Verdes for 15 years. During that time I have never had any conflict with hikers or equestrians and have found pleasant hellos to be the norm. The current concern in the area is a number of unofficial trails that have been made and the corresponding erosion caused by this. Unfortunately, as in any group, there is a small number of individuals who, usually through lack of knowledge or etiquette, give a group a bad name. A mountain bike, when ridden under control, causes no more damage than a footprint, and significantly less than a horse. The main cause of erosion in our trails is water runoff. The mountain bike community has already volunteered significant hours to assist with trail maintenance and has rerouted trails in the preserve to minimize erosion. Once the trails have been officially designated and posted, we can patrol the area and continue to educate users. Banning bicycles from this area would be akin to banning hikers on all trails because a small handful of them shortcut on switchbacks. By and large, all user groups have successfully shared this area for a long time and should be able to continue to do so. We need to all work together and not have access denied to anyone because of a small handful of kids on bikes (not mountain bikers) or a small group of angry hikers. – STEVE KERR San Pedro The National Park Service’s own reporting shows that damage from mountain bikes is negligible (if riders stay on the prescribed trails) and that in some cases horses can be far more damaging. Any erosion caused in the Portuguese Bend area by mountain bikers is done by a small minority of bikers, and the mountain bike community has begun to actively “police” these riders from continuing the type of riding that would damage these trails. – ANDY TANKERSLEY San Pedro I firmly believe that mountain bikers should be allowed on the nature trails on the Peninsula, and in particular on the trails in the Portuguese Bend area below Del Cerro Park. These trails have been shared by hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers for more than 20 years now. Up until now, this land has been a big “vacant lot” with basically no rules. Once the Public Use Master Plan (PUMP) Committee (in Rancho Palos Verdes) decides which of the existing trails should remain open, I believe that it will be in the best interest of everybody that all of these trails be designated “multi-use.” Just in the last year, this same process has been implemented in the Forestall Preserve with most of the trails being designated multi-use, and there has been no evident harm to the environment from mountain bikes. Mountain bikers will respect posted signs and will stay on designated trails if they are allowed on most of the trails, just like what has happened in the Forestall Preserve. – BOB ENDICOTT San Pedro Having a diverse trail user community is healthy and reflects the people and their recreational preferences in the surrounding neighborhoods. Bicycles have been using the trails on the Palos Verdes Peninsula for more than 20 years. Mountain bicyclists from the surrounding communities have provided many hours of volunteer trail maintenance and shown their value as caring and involved constituents. Excluding bicycles would only create a huge challenge for the agency that is tasked with managing the local trails and parklands, taking away from their ability to maintain trails and keep them safe and beautiful for all users, while alienating a longtime user group. – PETER HEUMANN Calabasas Mountain bikes should be allowed on all trails in Palos Verdes. They inflict less trail damage than equestrian trail users. Mountain bikers in the area ride respectfully. Please share the trails. – CHAD FLYNN Hermosa Beach I have been an avid hiker for years. I have never had a problem with mountain bikers at Del Cerro. The ones I have met have been very polite. I know that some can cause trouble but in that regard, I have scolded other hikers for intentionally littering and have seen hikers going off trail. It’s like driving in L.A. – most people are good but sometimes someone is an idiot! I believe that multi-use trails can work. They should not be closed to anyone unless it rains. Then horses and bikers should stay off. – LIZ KURTZ Los Angeles Mountain bikers should be allowed to share the land with hikers and equestrians. And no, bikes do not do “too much harm to the environment.” I have been a hiker and mountain biker in that area for more than 10 years, and the most damage I’ve seen was due to water and horses being ridden on trails right after rain. Downhill sections of trail would have deep imprints from the horses shoes, due to the softened dirt. – LARRY LINDSAY Torrance We are all stakeholders. This land now belongs to the community, so everyone should be allowed to share these trails. The bike community has been working to make sure everyone knows the rules. There is no evidence that bikes impact trails any differently than other users if they stay on designated trails. Cyclists have done more trail work than any other group. We deserve respect. I’ve volunteered to repair trails throughout the Southern California. We deserve to ride them. I’ve been riding these trails for more than five years now. Walking your bike in hazardous sections is a common practice we use. Cyclists can control their bikes even on the steepest trail. I’ve never had a bad encounter with hikers or horses. – VICTOR CASAS Glendora Using a dirt trail leaves marks no matter what the mode of transportation. If the trails are dry, neither bikes, pedestrians or horses cause any actual damage. But when it rains, we should all stay away for one or two days until the trails dry out. Regardless of who uses them, trails need periodic maintenance, and bicyclists are usually the group most willing to spend a Saturday morning working on the trails. When I volunteer at organized trail work days in PV, we bicyclists outnumber everyone else. – DAVID THOM Torrance The controversy implied by the question stems from activities while the land was private property and without any form of management. A city-ordered study of all uses in the Forrestal Nature Preserve strongly suggests that the implementation of management will provide the controls necessary to accommodate bike use. The Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy study concluded that bikes had no more impact on habitat than other users and added that no user complaints were reported. As a member of the Forrestal Nature Preserve Advisory Board, I concur with the conclusions. Focusing on unmanaged activity neglects all of the proven mitigation methods that are available. I am also a member of the Rancho Palos Verdes Public Use Master Plan Committee that is nearing completion of an updated management plan. I am hopeful that a year of good management will allay concerns about bikes and other uses. – TROY BRASWELL Rancho Palos Verdes By prohibiting bikes from using the Peninsula trails, the city will cause more damage to the environment than good. Mountain bikers will be forced to drive to other trails, leading to more local air pollution and traffic congestion. Many mountain bikers, who also ride road bikes, would be forced to ride on the streets more often, in turn slowing down traffic and potentially leading to increased traffic accidents. In this era of global warming, bicycling should be encouraged in our community, not discouraged by special-interest groups that have misperceptions, axes to grind and/or special agendas in regard to a great sport. – AL MARTINEZ Rancho Palos Verdes The trails should be shared by all parties. The hikers should have the right of way but not exclusive use. The equestrians have always been somewhat limited, and I agree that not all trails should be open to horses. As for the environmental impact, a horse in not indigenous to North America and has a much, much higher unit loading on its hooves than that of a mountain bike tire. The unavoidable manure from a horse spreads nonindigenous plants. These plants have a negative impact on the area by choking out the native plants. These are evident on trails not used by mountain bikers. Is this really an environmental issue, or is it an elitist, exclusive land grab? – JOHN HALL Rancho Palos Verdes160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Although I am a biker (road type), I do not believe that hiking/horse trails should be shared with mountain bikers, and the environment is not the reason. Mountain bikers are all about speed on the downhill, and hikers and walkers are obviously on a different pace. Mixing them is a recipe for injuries. – BOB YOUNG Harbor City Obviously you’ve never been on a horse path before or never had a horse spooked by somebody jumping on a bicycle in front of you. It’s crazy to mix bicycles and horse riding. Horses do spook. Good way to break your neck. No bikes. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champ– RANDY SCHOONOVER Torrance I live in Upper Portuguese Bend and my wife and I have been biking, hiking and riding horses on the trails in that area for years. Compared to other places we have experience with, the folks we meet are very pleasant and generally demonstrate a real concern for the environment. This is evidenced by the lack of trash and litter on the trails. Because we use the trails for hiking, biking and riding, we are not biased toward any one group. It is our opinion that you can cause damage in any format. You cannot solve the problems with regulation. We need to communicate our concern, educate the users (all disciplines) and post rules of good conduct. last_img read more

Big break for small investors

first_imgDo small investors ever get a free lunch on Wall Street? The answer is actually yes, although we’ll have to wait until 2008, 2009 and 2010. Thanks to a new tax law, we won’t have to pay federal income taxes on stock dividends and long-term capital gains those years, provided we stay at least within the 15 percent tax bracket. This significant tax break, part of the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act passed by Congress last month, has gone almost unnoticed. Just about all the news reports I’ve seen or heard have simply said the legislation extends for two years the reduced 15 percent tax rate for dividends and capital gains, which was set to expire after 2008. For a married couple filing jointly, the $68,700 translates to a taxable income of $51,800 after subtracting $6,600 in personal exemptions and the $10,300 standard deduction. The ceiling for the 15 percent tax bracket is $61,300 in 2006, so this couple could make at least an additional $9,500 in dividends and long-term gains and pay a tax of only $475 or 5 percent, rather than $1,425 at a 15 percent rate. And in 2008, 2009 and 2010, they would pay nothing. Because tax-bracket ranges and exemption and deduction amounts are indexed for inflation each year, this couple would likely remain in the 15 percent bracket even if they receive cost-of-living increases. “The law encourages a very favorable investment climate for long-term investors,” said Sam Beardsley, director of investment taxation for T. Rowe Price, a financial services and mutual fund firm. “And it really favors stocks over bonds,” because interest from bonds is deductions in a particular year. Hold stocks or mutual funds that pay out a large amount of qualifying stock dividends (your fund or adviser should be able to explain which dividends qualify) in taxable accounts, not traditional IRAs. Distributions from traditional IRAs are taxed at our marginal tax rate and do not qualify for the lower rate for dividends or long-term gains. Be a smart seller. Keep confirmation statements of all your fund transactions. When you sell, you can cherry-pick the specific shares you are selling and possibly realize tax-free gains in 2008-2010. (You must hold the shares for more than a year for a gain to be considered long term.) And, subject to any internal restrictions imposed by a fund firm against rapid trading, you could sell appreciated shares in 2008 (or 2009 or 2010) and buy them right back, paying no taxes and locking in a higher tax basis for future sales. “That’s pretty clear in the law,” said Mark Luscombe, principal tax analyst for tax publisher CCH, a Walter Kluwer business. “You are free to realize a gain and immediately buy back” the same securities.

Only about one-fourth of U.S. taxpayers are in such high brackets, according to Internal Revenue Services statistics I looked up. For the other three-fourths in the two lowest 10 percent and 15 percent brackets – count my wife, Georgina, and me among them – the tax rate for stock dividends and long-term gains is just 5 percent now and will drop to zero – nada, zilch – not only in 2008 as previously scheduled, but also in 2009 and 2010. Based on industry statistics, I figure the average mutual fund investor – the prototypical small investor in the United States – qualifies for the 5 percent rate now and can expect to qualify for the zero percent rate from 2008 to 2010. Let’s compute the potential tax savings. According to the Investment Company Institute, a trade group for the mutual fund industry, the median annual household income of the 91 million Americans who own mutual funds is $68,700 (half make more than $68,700 and half make less). last_img read more

Half-time: Chelsea 1 Swansea City 1

first_imgDiego Costa’s fifth goal in four games hauled Chelsea level after a frustrating first half. John Terry’s clumsy own goal saw Swansea lead after 11 minutes but an out-of-sorts Blues began to dominate possession and territory and levelled through Costa’s 45th-minute header from a Cesc Fabregas corner.Swansea settled much better after a frantic opening 10 minutes and led when Ki Sung-Yeung’s purposeful run freed Neil Taylor on the right and the full-back’s cross was needlessly slid in by Terry.Oscar could easily have levelled from the resumption but dragged a good chance wide from the edge of the box.However, the Welsh side looked the more cohesive and Wayne Routledge and Bafetimbi Gomis both missed good opportunities to double the lead.The Blues, who like Swansea are hoping to extend their 100% league record, found some fluency, with Eden Hazard looking a constant danger despite some ruthless and cynical treatment from the away side.He created several half chances and threatening positions but the closest Chelsea came to an equaliser before Costa struck was when Andre Schurrle’s free-kick was tipped over.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
