Rough ride for economy

Rough ride for economy

first_imgThe full effects of the downturn in the housing market are yet to be seen. It takes about two years for the impact to be known and the industry is just about halfway into that cycle. Thornberg said the argument that California still has a housing shortage is misleading because the shortage is in the area of low-cost rental units, not homes. Another troubling sign is the fact that last year people spent 1.5 percent more than what they earned after taxes. About 9 percent of the consumer spending has been fueled by people borrowing against the equity of their homes – and now that equity is drying up. But not all the news is bad. Inflation and interest rates remain low, and employment and corporate profits are up, he said. The Antelope Valley can expect to see defense spending stabilize, and the high desert remains the cheapest place to live in Los Angeles County. There was good news delivered at the conference by the Greater Antelope Valley Economic Alliance, whose officials unveiled their 2007 economic round-table report. Among the findings was that the Antelope Valley’s number of jobs grew 11.2 percent from 2004 to 2005 with 88,232 jobs. james.skeen@dailynews (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LANCASTER – A bumpy economic ride lies ahead this year thanks to a drop in the housing market and a dip in consumer spending, an economist told a gathering of Antelope Valley business and civic leaders Friday. Economist Christopher Thornberg told the 35th annual Antelope Valley Board of Trade Business Outlook Conference that there are signs of a slowing economy. The event drew around 1,000 business and civic leaders. “Tighten your seat belts, it’s going to be a rough ride,” he said.

Some readers can really take you back

Some readers can really take you back

first_imgOnce upon a time, I responded by hand to the good people who bothered to write me. I’m ashamed to admit that, spoiled by the ease of e-mail, I seldom touch bases anymore using stationery and stamp. Such is the case of Mr. Legreid; I’ve yet to acknowledge a single note. I immediately recognize the penmanship on his envelopes – all-caps print that usually includes some clever little extra. The latest categorizes me as: “COLUMNIST-PANELIST-FREELANCER.” He scrawled his clarification on a clip of my recent tale about Queen Mary ghost sightings: “THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COLUMNIST AND A PANELIST.” Arrows indicate that a horizontal three-column column is not a column at all but, to be precise, a panel. “I DON’T HAVE E-MAIL, WEB-SITE OR CELL PHONE ABILITY,” Mr. Legreid wrote in his letter. “MOST OF MY FAMILY (AND, I GUESS, MOST OF THE USA) DOES. I STILL HAVE ROTARY DIAL PHONE.” As someone perpetually confused about which channel changer, and then which button, turns on the TV, I can totally relate. I leave all uploading of photos and downloading of music to my husband and kids. “I STILL ENJOY YOUR PANELS FROM TIME TO TIME,” Mr. Legreid said, reiterating his contention that real columns are vertical. “EVEN YOUR PHOTO BRINGS YOU MORE UP TO DATE FROM THE JUST-PAST TEENAGER I FIRST KNEW YOU AS.” Another reason to appreciate this man! He thinks I’m younger than I am! Back when I was a just-past teenager yuppie, I covered such topics as the futility of sitting through a wine-tasting class: “My brain does not store facts; it admires them from afar.” As well as a screenplay writing class, full of Hollywood-philes: “I didn’t imagine anyone present cared to hear about the vending machine I’d done lunch with that afternoon.” I lamented my lack of cool health club attire: “I am not color-coordinated. I am not any kind of coordinated.” And “signs of advanced adulthood”: “You suddenly feel silly wearing things like purple hose and heart-shaped barrettes.” I chronicled the advent of my first PC (now, there’s a historical milestone), which I dubbed Ms. Dos (remember MS-DOS?): “If she is to remain under my fine roof, she shall earn her room and board. For starters, Ms. Dos must write my Great American Novel. And then keep her boastful yap shut when I take all the credit.” Hard to believe I ever felt this way, but I even expressed mixed emotions over becoming “Aunt Su” to my sister’s toddler: “To me, the designation conjured up images of a round, doting spinster: `Opie, sweetheart, come over here and give your Aunt Bee a big hug!”‘ The more things change, the more things remain changed.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre The point is, I gave up my column like a dog gives up a bone, figuring that no job would ever grant me such a privilege again. Time marched on. I married. I had babies. I quit my staff position and discovered the joy (and low pay) of self-employment. This is why I refer to my former life as: Before Breeding vs. After Breeding. One era barely resembles the other. Eventually, the Breeze had the splendid sense to revive my column, different though it may be in its reincarnation. Presto chango! I went from the consummate single woman at large to a team mom who rarely drives her van out of the neighborhood. Occasionally, I still receive correspondence from readers who did, in fact, know this about me. My most dedicated old friend is John O. Legreid of Santa Monica. You might not know this about me, but in my former life I wrote a column. For the Daily Breeze, no less. Well, technically, not for the Breeze but its sister paper, The Outlook in Santa Monica. Both were owned by The Copley Press at the time, so they shared material. Then, in the late 1980s, I left to work for the Orange County bureau of MegaNewspaper. (Nowadays, it’s hard to think of any newspaper as “mega,” since the entire industry – so critical to open government – has become an underdog to other media.) I actually had the nerve and naivete to “tell” my new editors that I planned to continue my South Bay/Westside column on a freelance basis, arguing there would be little to no readership overlap. Needless to say, they argued otherwise and won. last_img

State meet is first for Saugus girls’ team

first_imgFRESNO – Chelsea Johnstone usually has no trouble staying focused in class. The Saugus High girls’ cross-country runner is a good student – she was a state finalist for the Wendy’s High School Heisman, an award based heavily on academic performance. But the senior has been daydreaming this week. She’s been looking forward to today, when she and her teammates will become the first girls in school history to run at the state meet. “I’m so excited,” said Johnstone, the team’s only senior. “I’ve been looking forward to this for four years.” The team was in high spirits, calling the weather ideal, as they jogged part of the course and ran sprints alongside dozens of other teams. They also sang songs from the Beastie Boys’ “Licensed to Ill,” an album produced before they were born. The girls listened to the tracks as they rode to the course. The Beastie Boys sing, “All I really want is girls,” in one song on that CD; it’s one of the Centurions’ favorite songs. They already have what they want, though – a spot in today’s race.

Shannon Murakami is the only current Centurion with state-meet experience. The junior competed as an individual two years ago. All but two of her varsity teammates have run at Woodward Park, site of today’s race, though. The Centurions stopped in Fresno on their way to the Stanford Invitational earlier this season, jogging the course in anticipation of today. The course features rolling hills, a reprieve from the steep climbsat Mt. San Antonio College, where the Centurions finished third in the Southern Section Div. I final last week. The weather was cold and drizzly when they arrived at the course Friday afternoon, similar to anticipated conditions for the team’s race this afternoon. last_img read more

Man held in attack on deputy

Man held in attack on deputy

first_imgCANYON COUNTRY – Detectives arrested a man Tuesday morning on suspicion of assaulting a sheriff’s deputy in Canyon Country. Deputies Kevin Sweetland and Michael Griffey were patrolling Soledad Canyon Road near Sierra Highway about 1 a.m. Tuesday when they tried to stop a reckless driver they suspected might be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The driver, later identified as Jerry Zimmerman, 28, of Canyon Country, crashed his car into a wall in the 30000 block of Sand Canyon Road. He got out of the car and fought with Sweetland and Griffey, according to investigators’ reports, then ran off, pursued by both deputies. A containment area was set up, but Zimmerman got away, they said. During the course of either the fight or the chase, Sweetland fell to the ground in pain and was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, where doctors discovered his leg was fractured. Griffey was treated for cuts and bruises suffered during the fight.
