Required fields are marked * Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena firefighters rushed to the area of Washington Blvd. and Allen Avenue in Pasadena this morning shortly after 10 a.m. to respond to an emergency call about an exterior gas leak.Upon arrival, fire units immediately decided to evacuate people from the nearby Chase Bank and cordon off the area because of the heavy gas odor present.Lisa Derderian, Pasadena Fire Department spokesperson, said it would be prudent for residents to temporarily avoid the area for the meantime.“Exterior gas leak, heavy odor of gas on arrival, evacuated Chase Bank and they’re cordoning off that area now at Allen and Washington,” Derderian said. “We have firefighters standing by on a fire hydrant to keep that area saturated with water because that will dissipate the gas.”“It could lead to very serious situations so we want to make sure that we’re standing by until the gas company gets here,” Derderian said. “They’re usually quick so they should be there shortly.”Pasadena police officers were also dispatched to the area, Derderian said.A Southern California Gas Company spokesperson confirmed that SoCalGas crews responded after a third-party contractor damaged a small 1/2-inch line near a commercial building and caused a release of natural gas.“SoCalGas crews worked with first responders to make the area safe. We stopped the flow of gas at 12:22 and are making permanent repairs,” the spokesperson said.SoCalGas reminds residents and business owners to “call 811 before you dig” in the yard or at construction sites. Calling 811 or Underground Service Alert will help avoid possible injury or damage to hidden gas lines or service interruption while digging.

first_imgYesterday, we had the delightful opportunity to share some exciting news about beloved jamgrass band Greensky Bluegrass, as the group performed at Safeco Field in Seattle, WA for a Bernie Sanders rally. The gig came just a few hours before their headlining set at The Showbox, a popular spot for touring artists in the Northwestern city.Fortunately, we have video footage from Greensky’s performance. The group opened up with their classic tune “Windshield,” and worked in “Workin On A Building” and “Lose My Way,” before playing the ever-appropriate song, “Burn Them.” The band was clearly in awe of the whole situation, playing in front of so many people for a cause in which they believe.After the original songs, the band welcomed out John Popper for a collaboration. With Popper, the group played two Blues Traveler songs, “Run Around” and “Hook,” before leaving the stage to let Popper perform the “Star Spangled Banner” as the show’s finale. Popper would later appear with them at The Showbox, playing “Mr. Charlie” and “Hook” at the evening concert. Skerik also made an appearance at the Showbox (setlist below).You can watch some of the band’s performance at the rally, via LIVE SATELLITE NEWS, below:Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass at Safeco Field, Seattle, WA – 3/25/16Windshield, Workin On A Building, Lose my Way, Burn Them, Run Around*, Hook*, Star Spangled Banner^* – w/ John Popper^ – John Popper soloSetlist: Greensky Bluegrass at The Showbox, Seattle, WA – 3/25/16Set 1: We’re an American Band, Burn Them, Rafters, Old Barns, Mr Charlie*, Hook*, Breadbox, Great Atomic Power, KeroseneSet 2: Just to Lie **, Tarpology ** > Gumboots ** > Tarpology **, I’d Probably Kill You **, Demons **, Down the Road, 33443 > Wings for Wheels, Leap YearEncore: After Midnight****-w/ John Popper** – w/Skerik (sax)*** – w/ Keith Kinnear tambourine shake[Setlists via Camp Greensky]last_img read more

first_img16 July 2004Pieter-Dirk Uys, South Africa’s most famous political satirist, has been sending up his mother country since the 1970s – most famously in the guise of his alter ego, Evita Bezuidenhout.But if you thought Evita was outspoken, just wait till you hear what her 102 year-old mother, Ouma Ossewania Kakebenia Poggenpoel, has to say about the state of the nation in Ouma Ossewania Praat Vuil (Talks Dirty).This hilarious memoir – the first in a trilogy of plays starring the Poggenpoel family – filled with social commentary and candid opinion from the filthy mouth of this Boere volksmoeder, comes to the Tesson at Johannesburg’s Civic Theatre from 10 to 28 August (Tuesdays to Saturdays at 8pm).The show is performed in Afrikaans, will be understood by anyone who has listened to a rude joke in that language, and should delightfully offend all adults.Ossewania Kakebenia – named after the Boer ossewa (oxwagon) and the kakebeen (jaw) of the Afrikaner ox – was born on 31 December 1900, during the Anglo-Boer war, in the concentration camp of Heldersonop. Her mother was the legendary Sarie Marais, who inspired the folksong but little else; her father was the charming rogue Gerhardus Poggenpoel.Little Ossewania grew up angry, eventually giving birth to two illegitimate daughters, Evangelie and Baby.After years in Bethlehem in the old Orange Free State – where Ossewania was for years the youngest organist in the Dutch Reformed Church – she moved to Johannesburg with her daughters and took over the management of a seedy boarding house in Doornfontein.Baby went to Europe to follow her dreams, while Evangelie became a Killarney film star, eventually marrying into the powerful and ruthless Bezuidenhout family, something Ossewania never approved of, especially when Evangelie changed her name to Evita.Mevrou Poggenpoel spent the glory years of the 1960s and 1970s in the shadow of her now-famous daughter, who had become the glittering hostess of the National Party in power. But Ossewania’s anger was never far from the surface.Now 102 years old, abandoned in an old-age home, waiting to be fetched by a family who never turn up, this ancient Afrikaner matron lets rip.She has had enough: enough of democracy and affirmative action, enough of lies, corruption and hypocrisy. She regards her famous daughter with contempt, and even though she loves her great-grandchildren, the fact that they are black does not sit comfortably with her. Her unnatural passion for church leaders has not waned, and even at her ripe old age Ouma Ossewania has been known to spy on the young dominee in the toilet of the local NG Kerk.Throughout her life Ouma Ossewania believed them when they said apartheid was a gift of God. Now she knows her life was wasted on a lie. Is it too late? Will the Zulu garden “boy” still sleep with her? Will he want more than the R20 she has saved?Ouma Ossewania Praat Vuil – n Afrikaans, in language that would make a tart from Benoni blush. Without censorship, without good taste, and without qualms.Book at Computicket or at the Johannesburg Civic Theatre.Source: Johannesburg Civic Theatrelast_img read more

I doubt that would have been possible with top English clubs. We trust the players very early, are not afraid to let them play. He acknowledges that.” last_img read more

first_imgJoe Lunardi's hair looks suspect.Twitter/@RPreslanEvery year, ESPN college basketball analyst Joe Lunardi is tasked with putting together what he thinks will be the exact bracket that the NCAA selection committee will release on Selection Sunday. And given the Worldwide Leader’s influence, many fans take what he produces as fact. Sometimes it slips your mind that what he says isn’t actually official.To his credit, Lunardi has nailed all 68 (or 64, previously) teams a number of times. So how did he do in 2015? Well, Lunardi actually missed two teams this year. He had both Temple and Colorado State in the field, and omitted Indiana and UCLA. Of course, the Hoosiers and the Bruins were by far the most controversial inclusions this year.Lunardi got all four 1-seeds correct, and all four 2-seeds. He had Baylor as a 4-seed, with Maryland as a 3-seed, which in the real bracket, was reversed. Overall though, he did an incredible job. Almost every team in his field was within one seed line of where it actually wound up. Here’s his bracket. You can see the real NCAA Tournament bracket here. So yes, Joe Lunardi, is still good at his job. Now we just have to figure out what’s going on with his hair.last_img read more
