However, a judge ordered that he be released for poor procedure in his detention.“Was very delicate (the situation with Núñez in Junior) and well they knew everything.

Condo project planned

first_imgBuildings the two dealerships formerly occupied have been demolished. The Whittier Boulevard Specific Plan, approved by the City Council in June 2005, seeks to enable the boulevard to gradually evolve from a hodgepodge of strip malls and retail shops into thoroughfare of six well-defined districts. The plan calls for the eastern three miles of the boulevard to be transformed from commercial to residential use. Collier said residential usage is a better fit for that stretch because the city’s auto dealerships do not want to locate to that site. “They like to cluster together,” he said. Developer Hagop Sargisian, owner of HDS Group, is proposing a variety of condominium sizes, including 23 three-bedroom units and 73 units of either one or two bedrooms. The project will have less units than allowed under the city plan, with a density of about 19.6 units per acre. The city allows up to 30 units per acre. The project also will have 222 parking spaces. One issue still be resolved is how much in city park fees HDS must pay. That money goes for park improvements in Whittier. City regulations call for the company to pay about $500,000 in park fees. But Sargisian on Tuesday called that figure “outrageous.” Based on his dealings with other cities, he said a fair amount in park fees would be $3,000 per unit, or about $300,000 for the entire project. Collier said city staff members are reworking Whittier’s fee structure, and the city is prepared to negotiate with Sargisian. (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 WHITTIER – A proposed 96-unit condominium project on the site of two former auto dealerships will usher in a major change – from commercial to residential use – on Whittier Boulevard east of Santa Gertrudes Avenue. The Beverly Hills-based HDS Group now owns the nearly five-acre site at 16050 and 16110 Whittier Blvd., where the Whittier Dodge and Isuzu dealerships were formerly located. The developer’s proposed condominium project will go before the Whittier Planning Commission at a special meeting April 9. The project had been set to be reviewed by the commission Monday, but the matter was continued. “This is a significant project,” said Jeff Collier, director of community development for Whittier. “It takes a site that has been somewhat of an eyesore … and begins the implementation of the Whittier Boulevard plan in earnest. This starts the transition to a different land use.” last_img read more

Transfer Spotlight: The Colombian star on Arsenal’s radar

first_img1 Arsene Wenger has been on the prowl in Brazil.Wenger was often seen this summer on the beach in his Daniel Craig-style speedos in Brazil, casually playing footvolley with Christian Karembeu and Bixtente Lizarazu, but it turns out he’s been doing a lot more than that.After FA Cup hero Lukasz Fabianski left Arsenal to join Swansea City on a free transfer leaving just Wojciech Szczesny and Damian Martinez as the club’s senior goalkeepers, the Frenchman has feverishly been hunting for a new shot-stopper to battle Szczesny for the number one spot.Agile Mexican star Guillermo Ochoa has caught Wenger’s eye over in South America, as has the slightly more unorthodox style of Levante’s Keylor Navas, who was so brilliant for Costa Rica.Now, though, it appears the 64-year-old has targeted Colombia ‘keeper David Ospina after a string of fine saves between the sticks, so talkSPORT’s Transfer Spotlight takes a look at the man the Gunners could be signing…Name: David OspinaDate of birth: 31 August, 1988Birthplace: Medellin, ColombiaClub: NicePosition: GoalkeeperInternational appearances: 44Honours: Colombian Primera Apertura title (2005, 2007), Primera Finalizacion title (2007)What’s the latest?After checking out and enquiring about a number of goalkeepers, including Ochoa, Navas and Cardiff City’s David Marshall, Wenger has been forced to seek out another shot-stopper and Ospina could well be his man.The Colombian is available from £3million, which would represent good business by the Gunners who seem intent on strengthening their team as they look to mount a season-long bid for the Premier League title.Did you know?1) Ospina started his career with Colombian side Atletico Nacional and before leaving the club, aged just 19, he had made an impressive 88 league appearances for the side.2) On his arrival at Nice in 2008, the shot-stopper replaced the outgoing Hugo Lloris, who was leaving his hometown club for Olympique Lyonnais.3) In the last six years the talented glovesman has gone on to appear more than 200 times for the French club.4) Known for his speed off the goal-line and quick reflexes, Ospina found himself praised by Argentina boss Alejandro Sabella and Colombia boss Jose Pekerman when the two sides drew 0-0 in a World Cup qualifying match last June.5) Turkish side Besiktas identified the 25-year-old’s talents two years ago but failed with a €2million bid for the player.6) After spending six years in Europe, Ospina is now officially a French citizen.7) The goalkeeper’s sister, Daniela, is married to World Cup senastion James Rodriguez.Video evidence David Ospina last_img read more

first_imgA group of 30 motorbike enthusiasts will take to the roads next Thursday (26th April) to raise funds for life-saving equipment for Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units and Special Care Baby Units in hospitals from Letterkenny to Limerick.The four-day ‘Ride Out For Prems Motor Bike Road Trip Challenge’ will take place from 26th to 29th April to help raise funding for vital equipment such as incubators, heart monitors, ventilators and apnoea monitors for babies who have been born premature and may have developed complications or need extra support in the early stages of their lives.Over the four day road trip, participants will be given the unique opportunity to visit Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units and Special Care Baby Units in hospitals such as Letterkenny General Hospital, Sligo General Hospital, Mayo General Hospital, University Hospital Galway and St. Munchin’s Unit, Limerick. This will give the participants a wonderful insight and opportunity to see firsthand what a difference their fundraising efforts will make. The bikers will also be able to meet with the parents and medical staff that they are helping through their fund-raising motorcycle ride.Irene Dowling of the Irish Premature Babies Association says; “We are delighted that the motorcyclists are going to “ride out” for vital life-saving equipment for babies in the neo-natal and special care units. Every rider had to raise €1,000 to go on this trip so, between the guys on the bikes and all our generous sponsors, it was a huge commitment by these people to help out, many of whom had no ties to prematurity or the charity.”“The main person behind this trip is a Harley Davidson enthusiast called Sean Brennan.  Sean originally did a trip similar to this last year and was so emotionally touched by what he saw in the units and with meeting families that he felt he had to do even more to raise awareness and funding this year. Sean, along with members of the IPB team, have worked tirelessly on this event over the past twelve months, which has accumulated with up to 30 bikers participating in the road trip and visiting nine Neo-natal units around the country,” Irene adds.On Friday, 27th April, the saddle-bound fundraisers are expected to arrive at Letterkenny General Hospital at 9 a.m., Sligo General Hospital at around midday and then on to Mayo General Hospital, arriving at around 3 p.m.  They will then head towards Galway City, and are expected to visit the Neo-natal Unit at UHG, which was recently officially opened by President Michael D. Higgins, at around 9 a.m. on Saturday, 28th April.  They will then continue on towards Limerick and are due to visit St. Munchin’s Regional Maternity Hospital at around 9 a.m. on Sunday, 29th April.
