The new Los Angeles Unified school board is supposed to be forward-thinking. It’s supposed to be less beholden to union and other interests. But one of the school board’s first major decisions is troubling. On Thursday, the board approved – by a 5-2 vote – a measure that increases the number of hours some 2,352 cafeteria workers work each day from three to four. Ostensibly, this will make lunches healthier. In addition, the increase in hours for workers is supposed to improve cafeteria operations, allowing more students to eat their free or reduced price lunch. Ideally, better nutrition should improve students’ academic performance. But when cafeteria workers put in four hours a day, they become “full-time” employees, thus qualifying for full health benefits. Paying for those benefits won’t be easy. This decision will cost the district $105 million over the next three years. Superintendent David Brewer now has to find the money to cover a massive expense that was never budgeted. The precedent will also no doubt spur other LAUSD unions to demand full-time benefits for their part-time workers. There are 18,000 part-timers laboring in the LAUSD. Providing full health care for all of them would cost the district – which can’t even swing adequate music and art classes – an additional quarter-billion dollars a year. What’s worse, this huge expansion of benefits didn’t even come at the bargaining table, with the usual give-and-take of negotiations. This is all a give to the unions on the part of the schools, with taxpayers taking nothing in return. Plus, the unions now know they don’t need to negotiate for new perks; they can just finagle from the politicians. Providing health care is a worthy goal, but so is providing solid education and smart accounting. The new school board has moved quickly to address the cafeteria problem, but our fear is that the solution may have come at too high of a price. read more

160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! IN a sense, machines really are taking over. Or, at least, the television sets are. A Nielsen Media Research report found last week that the average American home now has a larger population of TV sets than actual viewers. There is an average of 2.73 sets and 2.55 persons per American home. That doesn’t even take into account the television sets in the workplace, the grocery checkout line, buses and airplanes. This simple fact speaks volumes about Americans, from our economic stability that allows luxuries such as a TV set in every room, to our reliance on the boob tube. It’s not quite the bleak dystopia imagined for the 21st century by the “Terminator” movies. But it is an eye-opener to just how reliant we are on this particular home appliance. If the sets ever do acquire self-awareness, though, we are all doomed. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe Christmas Truce of 1914 proved that peace is possible read more

New Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has said he has joined the club with the aim of dominating Scottish football and reviving the club’s European fortunes.Rodgers spoke to the media for the first time since being appointed as successor to Ronny Deila at the club and targeted success on all fronts at what he said was “one of the biggest clubs in the world”.The former Liverpool boss revealed that he had the opportunity to join clubs in England and abroad but that conversations with Celtic owner Dermot Desmond and chief executive Peter Lawwell had sold him on a move to manage the team he supported as a boy.Now, tasked with moving the club forward, the Northern Irishman cited Porto and Benfica as examples of the success he planned to deliver. Both Celtic chief executive Lawwell and chairman Ian Bankier labelled Rodgers the ideal candidate for the club, confirming widespread interest from around the sport in the vacancy following Deila’s exit.“There was huge interest in the job but Brendan was the outstanding candidate,” said Lawwell. “I’m really hopeful that there are special times ahead for Celtic.” Rodgers underlined his commitment to youth, commenting: “Your first look has to be within your own youth department. You might have a £5 million or £10 million player in your own academy.”However, the Northern Irishman insists he has received assurances that finances are in place to make moves in the transfer market should the right player become available.The former Liverpool boss will favour a smaller squad of around 25 players, once again highlighting the importance of giving youth a route into the first team, using Raheem Sterling as an example of his pedigree in developing young players.But the 41-year-old was also keen to talk up the quality of the squad he has inherited from Ronny Deila, highlighting in particular the “drive” and “intensity” of Scott Brown. “He is someone I have admired from a distance for a long time now,” he said. read more

After some uncertainty last year concerning the future of the event, FireFest Chatham-Kent pulled out all of the stops this weekend.Approximately 75 antique fire trucks lined King Street on Saturday, a day after a parade thrilled crowds in Thamesville on Friday.Organizer Brent DeNure said he was pleased with the response from participants, volunteers and the community.“The reaction we’ve had from the business community, from the people of our community and the fire truck community have all been just off the charts,” he said.The theme was “Made in Detroit,” so several classic Detroit Fire Department vehicles were on display while screenings of three Detroit-made documentaries were enjoyed at The River Rock Social House.“The support we’ve had from the Detroit Fire Department is beyond impressive,” DeNure said. “I’m very grateful for our relationship with them.”Other entertainment included Stan the Magical Fireman, face painting, tours of Chatham-Kent Fire Station 1, a safety demo from Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services, the Detroit Fire Department Clown Team, and a meet-and-greet with Nicolas Neumann, owner of Fire Replicas.Chatham-Kent assistant fire Chief Chris Case said the local department was pleased to be involved in educating the crowds, especially concerning safety.“We relish any opportunity to engage with the community,” he said. “We’re glad that FireFest is staying. We’re happy to support it.”Following FireFest in 2018, DeNure said he was done hosting the event in Chatham-Kent, citing various issues with the municipality.However, he decided to continue FireFest this year, crediting the work of new Mayor Darrin Canniff and some changes in local government services.“We’re already planning two and three years out,” DeNure said. “We’ve got a theme picked out for 2020 and we’ve got some goals for 2021. … We’re already talking to some people for a big, big show next year.”firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter.com/DailyNewsTT read more
