Budget boom

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Since with the current Legislature that seems as likely as Los Angeles suddenly getting rid of smog and gridlock at the same time, it’s going to take public pressure on lawmakers to keep spending under control. It already appears that the once red-hot housing market is cooling down as interest rates rise. Locally, homes were selling slower this month than in the same time period in the past five years. As the dot-com implosion taught us a few years ago, the good times can end at any moment. This means the state’s lawmakers – the governor and the Legislature – must not grow complacent. The hard work is ahead of us, not behind. The state needs some sort of spending controls, which were proposed in Proposition 76, but which voters rejected. That measure failed more in part due to a bigger fight between Schwarzenegger and the teachers union. But without some comprehensive plan – to steal a line from Schwarzenegger himself – to live within our means, the state is doomed to an endless cycle of boom and bust. There’s been a lot of bad news for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger lately, so he must be overjoyed to find out something is going right: The state won’t start next year with a deficit – as it has for the past four years. Indeed, Legislative Analyst Elizabeth Hill’s projections for the state through 2011 are markedly improved over past years. She notes that a jump in state revenues from taxes, coupled with ongoing budget cuts, has put the state back on the path of fiscal health. The Governor’s Office is taking credit for the good news, saying that Schwarzenegger’s promise to put California on a workout paid off. No doubt Schwarzenegger’s efforts were a big factor. But the state’s revenues were already picking up on their own, thanks to the strong housing market and the boom in home equity that allowed people to cash in and spend more. While this prediction is a relief after years of multibillion-dollar deficits and critical services being cut, it’s surely not a time to stop being frugal. As Hill pointed out, the structural deficit built into the state’s financial system still hasn’t been solved, and it won’t unless lawmakers take action to cut spending even deeper. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Doctor’s delight after tracking down late dad’s Donegal family

first_imgA London doctor who issued an online plea to find his estranged Donegal father’s family has tracked them down in less than 24 hours.Ben Stevens, a paediatrician in Hertfordshire, was left at a London hospital by his mother as a baby and later adopted when he was five by a loving family.The 35-year-old began searching for his birth parents around six years ago. However, he was heartbroken to discover that his father, Gerry Monaghan, from Co Donegal, had died tragically in a suspected hit-and-run just one year earlier.On Monday he issued an appeal on Independent.ie for help locating Gerry’s Irish family. His father, who struggled with alcohol addiction throughout his life, lost touch with his Irish roots.He said: “I would like to meet my relatives and to say ‘Hi’. I would like them to see that I turned out pretty okay I am a paediatrician and I have a very happy life.”And it wasn’t long before his call was answered. Less than 24 hours later, Geraldine Monaghan who is originally from Ballyshannon but living in the Midlands, contacted this website to say she believed she was Ben’s aunt. Ms Monaghan said: “It was such a huge shock seeing Gerard’s face again as we did not know where he had gone. I had no idea he had passed.“This is such a huge shock for us. it is bittersweet to learn of Gerard’s death and then to learn that I had a nephew that I wasn’t aware of.”Ms Monaghan (57) went on to explain that she has a brother Bernard (58) and a sister Martina (51). Furthermore she revealed that their mother, Ben’s grandmother, is still alive and “sharp as a razor”.Ben contacted Geraldine and today he revealed that they had already spoken at length over the phone and sent multiple whatsapp messages.“I have spoken to my two aunts Geraldine and Martina. I’m very happy talking to everybody. I think they were very much in shock. “I think they were very happy that I turned out okay and they were excited that I actually existed.”Dr Stevens said they have already made arrangements to meet up. Coincidentally Martina Monaghan is travelling to near where he lives in two weeks time.And in the next few months he is hoping to travel over to Ireland with his father’s ashes at last.“I haven’t had a chance to think about my first cousins yet. I would especially like to go over and meet my grandmother. “I will try get over in the next few months. They seem like very nice people.”“I am fascinated to know more about my birth father. I would like to know about where he grew up and my family.”Doctor’s delight after tracking down late dad’s Donegal family was last modified: August 12th, 2017 by StephenShare 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)Tags:BallyshannonBen StevensdonegalGerry Monaghansearchlast_img read more
