Land in Alberta worth less than BC, following royalty changes


first_imgA recent report says Alberta’s soon to be implemented royalty changes will cause land in Alberta to deliver 1/4 the value of similar land in BC.Calgary investment bank Peters & Co. concludes that the new royalty rates in Alberta, that start on January 1st, 2009, have caused more investment in BC. So far this year over $2 billion has been spent in BC on land sales compared to only $600 million in Alberta. The Alberta Energy Ministry says in some circumstances royalty rates are higher in Alberta, but there are more active rigs working than BC and Saskatchewan combined.- Advertisement -The study by Peters & Co. used a 100 well Montney development drilled over a five year period. Following the study land in BC could be worth 27 per cent more than the identical land in Alberta.last_img read more

Boys’ basketball: Buckley without final statement


first_imgBuckley (24-7) fell behind by 19 points in the second quarter, cut the deficit to seven points by halftime, finally took the lead on an Andrew Farhadi layup in the third quarter and had a 47-44 advantage entering the fourth quarter. But top-seeded Twentynine Palms (28-2) proved too tough down the stretch, outscoring the Griffins 19-4 in the fourth quarter, highlighted by 10 points from sophomore Montreal Harris. “I’m proud of the kids,” Hamilton said. “They never gave up.” Richie Polan scored 13 of his game-high 24 points in the third quarter and finished with 12 rebounds for Buckley. Teammate Hussein Habibi added 19 points and nine rebounds. “They gave us a scare,” Twentynine Palms coach Larry Bowden said. “They made a great comeback, give them all the credit.” ONTARIO – Buckley of Sherman Oaks coach Mike Hamilton gathered his team at midcourt after Friday’s 63-51 loss to Twentynine Palms in the Southern Section Div.

Arnold taps new education secretary


first_imgSACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday tapped Riverside County Superintendent of Schools David Long as his new education secretary. Long, a classroom teacher before he became an administrator, is “a great educator who understands education inside and out,” Schwarzenegger said at a Capitol news conference. Schwarzenegger hopes to make 2008 the year of education, much as he is spotlighting health care this year. In that event, Long, a Republican, could be a key adviser. He will help Schwarzenegger translate into policy proposals the results of a recently released comprehensive education survey that called for overhauling funding and policies. California will spend more than $40 billion on schools next year, but this will still be below the national average per student. Student performance remains lackluster despite various federal and state accountability programs. Long, 67, said he is excited about the job and impressed by Schwarzenegger’s passion for education reform. His new post pays $175,000 a year. Jack O’Connell, the state’s superintendent of public instruction, lauded the selection of Long. “I know that Dave shares my deep concern about the need to close the achievement gap in California,” O’Connell said in a written statement, “and I look forward to working with him on this critical issue.” Long has spent 40 years in education, starting as a teacher and coach in Iowa and moving up the ranks to serve as Riverside County’s elected schools chief since 1999. As Riverside County superintendent of schools, Long had some oversight over 23 districts serving 400,000 students. He chairs a safe schools committee for U.S. Education Secretary Margaret Spellings. Long succeeds Alan Bersin, who returned to his home in San Diego to chair the board of the San Diego Regional Airport Authority. kfolmar@mercurynews.com (916) 441-4602160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Governor retools image of vocational education


first_imgIf one cuts through the educational jargon, O’Connell’s encyclical frames an unresolved dilemma in voc-ed – whether it should be integrated into the college-oriented curricula now dominant in high schools or become a stand-alone alternative, as many CTE teachers advocate. Schwarzenegger’s community college advocacy, meanwhile, has spawned another development, a move by the colleges to block future raids on their state funds through a ballot measure that will be placed before voters during the presidential primary vote on Feb. 5. It will be interesting to see whether the governor endorses or opposes it, and it will be interesting to see whether his successor continues his advocacy or allows voc-ed and community colleges to fade again. Dan Walters is a columnist for The Sacramento Bee. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Whatever else he accomplishes or fails to accomplish during his topsy-turvy governorship, Arnold Schwarzenegger has served two interrelated and worthy causes very well – raising the standing of community colleges and bringing vocational training out of the educational attic. Schwarzenegger went through such training as a salesman when he was a high school student in Austria and later attended Santa Monica College. High school-level voc-ed, as it used to be known before being renamed “career technical education,” and community colleges, which provide many job-related classes themselves, have been given short shrift by politicians, the education establishment and other policymakers in recent decades. Both lack the glamour and political appeal of four-year colleges and college-oriented K-12 curricula and have widely been seen – erroneously – as refuges for society’s losers, rather than pathways to economic success for those with career ambitions, especially those from ethnic minority and low-income families. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.State policies have stressed college prep work at the K-12 level, even though a relative handful of high school students will eventually obtain four-year degrees, and local officials have denigrated and even closed down voc-ed offerings. One consequence, surely, has been to raise the state’s already scandalously high dropout rate as students with the potential to become auto mechanics, construction workers and other well-paid blue-collar workers are told, implicitly, to get lost by many local school systems. State lawmakers and governors, meanwhile, have routinely denied community colleges their appropriate shares of education dollars, responding to demands by the powerful, union-driven K-12 lobby for more money and pressure from four-year colleges – even though community colleges handle the majority of secondary education students at a fraction of the cost of four-year schools. Schwarzenegger has attempted, with some success, to reverse those trends, championing budget appropriations and legislation to boost voc-ed and community colleges and often visiting institutions to bring more media and public attention to their vital roles. He staged a “career technical education summit” last spring and placed $52 million in the current state budget to improve career and technical education, or CTE, including creating stronger connections between high school and community college vocational programs. There’s been a renewed interest among legislators in boosting CTE, and this month Schwarzenegger signed four bills, including a very important one that streamlines the credentialing of CTE teachers, whose ranks have been declining. State schools Superintendent Jack O’Connell has distributed what’s described as “a new and comprehensive framework for career technical education,” telling schools “how to integrate rigorous standards into the classroom and develop the relationships to make career technical education successful for 21st century learning.” last_img read more


A day of tunes and treats – including gator


first_imgIn the food court, people ordered up baskets of boiled crawfish, catfish po’ boys or Louisiana crab cakes on a bed of “dirty” rice. People clustered around the main stage, sitting on lawn chairs and shielded from the sun by canopies. Some drank beer and ate crawfish as couples danced. Cajun cooking’s secret is in the seasoning and the time taken to properly prepare the food, said Michael Hall, 24, of New Orleans. Working at the New Orleans Cookery booth, Hall said crab cakes combine the “trinity” of vegetables: celery, green bell peppers and onions. “It’s the herbs from around the Mississippi and it’s the seafood,” said Tess Mohr about Cajun and Creole food. The festival continues today from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Rancho Santa Susana Community Park, 5005 Los Angeles Ave. Admission is $15.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SIMI VALLEY – There were plush alligators for sale among the carnival beads and hats at the Cajun Creole Music Festival, and there was real alligator – cooked, on a stick. For the truly daring, the alligator meat is marinated in hot sauce for a couple of days, then dipped in batter and grilled. “It tastes like chicken,” said Lori Lange, 48, of Simi Valley, munching on an alligator skewer while strolling the grounds with her husband, Ron. The Langes have come to the festival for the past 15 years to enjoy the food and music.

From its humble beginnings as a clam bake in 1988, the festival now draws thousands from the city and surrounding communities. It is the biggest fundraising event of the Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise. The event brought in more than $100,000 last year, said Rotary member Steve Pietrolungo, chairman of last year’s festival. The money is donated to community groups and charities such as the Boys and Girls Club and Meals on Wheels. “It all goes back into the community,” Pietrolungo said. last_img read more
