All 11 members must be residents of Pasadena, but council nominees need not reside in the nominating council member’s district.Each councilmember, including the mayor, has one nominee to the commission, for a total of eight members. Three additional members representing community-based organizations must also be nominated.Applications for the three community-based organizations will be sent to the city. City staff will forward the applications to the City Council’s Public Safety Committee. After the PSC vets the applications they will make recommendations to the City Council.The City Council reserves the right to see all applications.Although it was established as part of the appointment procedure, the council decided to refer the rules and regulations to the council’s Public Safety Committee.“The minimal job would be to safeguard everyone’s rights. That would be the bare minimum,” said Councilmember Steve Madison, after expressing concerns about commissioners and the independent auditor possibly accessing confidential information.“I can see all sorts of unintended consequences,” Madison said.According to the rule and regulations presented on Monday, commissioners would be required to sign a confidentiality oath and take an oath before being sworn in.The rules could also prohibit matters from being placed on the commission’s agenda if it would compromise pending criminal and personnel investigations.That could prevent the commission from agendizing officer-involved shootings for several months or even longer as criminal and personnel investigations wend their way through the city’s process.“Here we go all over again, asking the same questions we asked six or seven months ago,” Councilmember Tyron Hampton said. “This is something the community has had a lot of input on. Tremendous input, and it should not be prolonged at this point.”The rules and regulations could be taken up or established in conjunction with the auditor and the commission.The city has already started accepting applications for commissioners. Currently, there are no deadlines for the applications.Despite 30 years of calls for oversight, it took the officer-involved death of George Floyd, a Black man in another state, to move a majority of council members in Pasadena to finally support some form of police oversight.After protests swept the nation in response to the May 25 death of Floyd, who died during an encounter with Minneapolis police, the majority of the council said they supported oversight.

first_imgThe Department of Health has announced its new staff line-up after taking on the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) work on nutrition and food reformulation.Led by Clair Baynton, deputy director nutrition science and delivery, the team consists of: Alison Tedstone, head of nutrition science; Corinne Vaughan, head of nutrition delivery; Alette Addison, salt; and Stephen Airey, saturated fat and energy.However, it remains tight-lipped on targets to reduce salt and saturated fats, which were set by the FSA. A spokeswoman would only say: “Further information will be available in due course the Department of Health will continue to work with industry on reformulation and provision of nutritional information to consumers.”The FSA had announced specific targets to reduce the saturated fat content in plain sweet and savoury biscuits, and plain cakes by at least 10%, and 5% in non-plain biscuits (those not containing chocolate) by 2012. A target of 1g of salt per 100g bread was also set for 2012.Policies including working with manufacturers to reformulate foods to reduce salt, saturated fat and sugar levels, and reducing portion size, moved from the FSA to the Department of Health along with nutritional labelling on foods, calorie information in restaurants, nutrition surveys and scientific advice on nutrition.The Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) took on food labelling policy, where it does not relate to food safety or nutrition. A Defra spokeswoman refused to give details of staff responsible.>>Changes at FSA unlikely to have adverse impactlast_img read more

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Ethier hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning to ignite a comeback from an early four-run deficit and the Dodgers grabbed an 8-6 victory Saturday night over the Arizona Diamondbacks, L.A.’s sixth win in seven meetings against its NL West rival.Ethier’s line-drive homer off Arizona rookie Mike Bolsinger over the right-field wall — his second of the year — awakened an announced crowd of 48,541 and helped a scuffling offense record the team’s largest comeback victory of the season.“I think it changed the feel of the game,” Ethier said. “We had an early four-run deficit and we were back on our heels and not doing what we are capable of doing, but then we made adjustments and maximized our opportunities.”The Dodgers also took sole possession of first place with the win and the San Francisco Giants’ 3-1 loss to the San Diego Padres.Ethier became just the sixth Dodger to record 600 RBIs in his career, joining Steve Garvey (992), Eric Karros (976), Willie Davis (849), Ron Cey (842) and Bill Russell (627). “I think it’s a by-product of being here so long, that you start to tally up a lot of organization stats,” Ethier said. “It’s more of an honor to be here that long and be able to produce.”The Dodgers chased Bolsinger — who retired the first eight Dodgers he faced — in the fifth inning by loading the bases.Adrian Gonzalez greeted reliever left-handed reliever Oliver Perez with a two-run single, and Matt Kemp followed with a two-run double down the left-field line for an 8-6 lead.“Big hits and runners on base — we didn’t do too much of that last night,” Kemp said.Gonzalez had already extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a single in the fourth inning that fell just in front of a diving Gerardo Parra in center field. He is hitting .345 (20 for 58) with five doubles, five homers and 16 RBIs in that span..Gonzalez’s go-ahead two-run single put the Dodgers ahead to stay.“I was looking for something in the middle of the plate and was trying to give us the lead,” Gonzalez said. “The only thing I didn’t want there was a strikeout. It was a fastball over the plate, and I was able to get it in play.”While Ethier and Co. provided a shot in the arm, Dodgers starter Dan Haren gave the bullpen a chance to rest and recuperate with seven quality innings to improve to 3-0 on the season.“I was just trying to get through the eighth to get our guys a little more rest,” Haren said.Haren shook off a near-disastrous four-run third inning when Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run single and Miguel Montero added an RBI double.“That inning when they scored four runs was kind of flukey — it seemed like anything that could go wrong went wrong,” said Haren, the pride of Bishop Amat High and Pepperdine University. “Me and (pitching coach) Rick (Honeycutt) were talking after that inning, and we said if we keep them to four, we’re going to win this game.“Once Ethier hit that homer, I knew it was going to be tight.”Haren allowed five runs (two earned) with seven hits, five strikeouts, no walks and a hit batter. He left to an ovation in the eighth in favor of Brian Wilson, who gave up a two-run double to Martin Prado.Kenley Jansen recorded his sixth save in eight chances, striking out Dodger killer Paul Goldschmidt to end it.After destroying the Dodgers in 2013, Goldschmidt is hitting just .219 (7 for 32) with three RBIs in seven games this season.“He’s a dangerous cat,” Mattingly said. “We wanted to be careful with him last year and we need to be more careful this year. I think we’re catching him at the right time, but we are never going to take him for granted.”center_img Before the game, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted he did not know if outfielder Andre Ethier was going to be ready for Saturday’s contest.Ethier was feeling so under the weather that he needed IV treatment, but he said there was no way he was sitting out if he could help it.“I was ready to go,” Ethier said. “The medical staff did a good job getting me out there and ready to go.”Turns out Ethier provided a shot in the arm for the Dodgers.last_img read more
