Sierra Madre Blvd., officers served a search warrant at that location Wednesday and arrested four employees, seized marijuana, marijuana products and cash, authorities said.Police spokesman Lt. William Grisafe said two men and two women were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit sales of marijuana.The dispensary on Sierra Madre Blvd. near East Del Mar Boulevard in District 4 has attracted the city’s attention when it became the first known dispensary to open after the city announced in February it had shut down all unregulated dispensaries operating in the cityThe city has fought to close illegal dispensaries for years. By early 2020, Pasadena’s Marijuana Suppression Detail had shut down 19 illegal shops, along with five others that opened, in 17 months.The unit also closed a grow facility during that time period.According to the City’s Code Commission, which is scheduled to meet to discuss alleged code violations during a May 28 meeting, the dispensary on N. Sierra Madre has violated the city’s municipal code by engaging in commercial cannabis activity without a permit.“To my knowledge, the only cannabis dispensary that has opened since February 2020 is the dispensary at 219 N. Sierra Madre Blvd.,” said Code Compliance Manager Jon Pollard. “I know of no other active cannabis dispensaries within the city.”The commission will also discuss cost recovery associated with abating public nuisance conditions associated with two other closed dispensaries at 775-779 E. Washington Blvd. The city is trying to recoup the $11,686.23 it spent to shut down those operations.“The city of Pasadena seeks to ensure public health and safety by aggressively identifying and pursuing unlawful dispensaries that engage in the sale of contraband cannabis and contraband cannabis derivatives,” Pollard said. “Those efforts are through the combined work of staff from the Planning & Community Development Department, the Police Department and the City Attorney’s office. The city has a continuum of enforcement options up to and including obtaining abatement warrants to board and secure unlawful dispensaries. The city seeks to be remunerated by the responsible party for abatement costs.”In 2018, voters passed Measure CC, the city’s highly regulated process which allows only six pot dispensaries — and potentially only one in each of the city’s seven council districts — to operate legally in Pasadena.The measure also requires dispensaries maintain strict distance limits from schools, libraries, churches and residential neighborhoods. Nearly 200 businesses applied.After Measure CC passed, the City Council banned so-called “nuisance,” or non-permitted dispensaries from applying for business licenses under the city’s cannabis law.“It seems that the best method to discourage illicit dispensary operators from opening in Pasadena is to maintain a robust and timely enforcement process,” Pollard said. “The City will diligently pursue complaints regarding illicit cannabis dispensaries and the public can contact me directly at (626) 744-6831 or [email protected] if they would like to report the suspected or confirmed presence of a dispensary in Pasadena.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes More Cool Stuff STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News
THE play-offs of the 2017 GCB/Jaguars One Day 50-Overs League, which were scheduled to be played today at the Albion Community Centre ground, have been suspended until further notice.This suspension is due to weather conditions that have made scheduling and playing matches very challenging.The preliminary rounds of 2017 GCB/Jaguars One Day 50-Overs League were conducted over two periods. The first period consisted of four rounds of matches which were played from November 21 to 27.The second round of matches was scheduled for December 19 to 23.The seven preliminary rounds saw the 2017 GCB/Jaguars 3-Day League Champions Essequibo emerge as the leaders on the points table, thereby securing an automatic place in the finals, while defending champions of the GCB/Jaguars One Day League, Lower Corentyne, placed second.As a consequence, Lower Corentyne are scheduled to play Georgetown who gained third position by virtue of having a better net run rate than West Demerara. Both Georgetown and West Demerara teams had ended the preliminary rounds with an equal number of wins and points.

There was a time last year when Kevin Harvick was considering discontinuing his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team with Ron Hornaday Jr. He didn’t have a sponsor and resources were running thin. Kevin Harvick Inc. hired Rick Ren to be crew chief of Hornaday’s No. 33 Chevrolet Silverado team. Ren worked as Johnny Benson’s crew chief last year and won five races at Bill Davis Racing. He has also won races with drivers Andy Houston, Travis Kvapil and Rick Carelli, who is now the team manager at Kevin Harvick Inc. Ren replaces Wally Rogers, who worked on a couple of Harvick’s teams last year. “Everything changes in NASCAR racing, especially these trucks, so you have to stay on top of it,” said Hornaday, a former Saugus Speedway champ from Palmdale. “Last year, Wally was cut thin between the Busch car and the truck, and Kevin obligated himself to do the right thing.” Carelli said he believes the drivers and crew chiefs the team has are impressive, especially with Hornaday’s team. “I know where Kevin is with this program, Hornaday speaks for himself and you have sort of a quiet storm putting him and Rick together,” Carelli said. Carelli and Ren are not strangers. Ren was on Carelli’s Truck Series team early in Carelli’s career, including the race they won at Bristol Motor Speedway in 1995. Then Hornaday and his team got some backing from Allstates Employer Services and his team was reborn. Hornaday’s team has a new crew chief, one with an impressive resume, and the 48-year-old driver has a chance to win a third Truck Series championship. Hornaday, who won two Truck Series championships with Dale Earnhardt Inc., and Carelli have a relationship that dates back to their days racing on the NASCAR Southwest Series. “You know when you already have a relationship with the team manager, I know the driver – his record speaks for itself – and I see the owner who is a young guy trying to build his programs,” Ren said. “(Kevin) has climbed the rungs of the ladder, and he’s gaining.” Ren said expectations are high for a productive season. “Maybe we haven’t all worked together but we already know each other,” Ren said. “When you walk in the door, you already know what they expect of you.” Kevin Harvick Inc. will have two entries in the Truck Series. Harvick, Clint Bowyer and newcomer Cale Gale will share driving duties in the No. 2 Chevrolet Silverado. Veteran Charlie Wilson, who like his boss Harvick is from Bakersfield, has been appointed crew chief of the No. 2 Chevrolet. As for Benson’s team, it was going to be facing a number of changes. The Bill Davis Racing Toyota trucks have a redesigned front end, as do the other three manufacturers in the Truck Series, and making adjustments was going to be inevitable. “Even if our team was 100 percent intact and didn’t have Rick as a change, we’d face the same changes coming in here anyway,” Benson said. “With the changes to the front end of the truck and the tire change, those challenges are made no matter what. It’s not like we unloaded a truck that came right off the track last year.” Benson will have Trip Bruce as his crew chief this year. Bruce has worked previously with Evernham Motorsports and Ultra Motorsports in the Truck Series. “Momentum is key because it gives the guys a great attitude coming into the season for sure,” Benson said. There are a number of Truck Series teams that are expanding their efforts. Five-time Truck Series race winner Rick Crawford will have a teammate at Circle Bar Racing. Crawford will be in the No. 14 Ford F-150 and David Starr will be in the No. 10 Ford for Circle Bar Racing. Joey Clanton and Stacy Compton will share driving duties in the No. 09 Ford for Wood Brothers/JTG Racing. Kelly Bries and Mark Martin will be in the No. 21 Ford for the same team. Shane Huffman and Clay Rogers will drive the No. 40 Chevrolet for Key Motorsports. A.J. Allmendinger, Josh Wise and Ken Butler III are set to race Darrell Waltrip’s No. 00 Toyota in the Truck Series. The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series opens with the Chevrolet Silverado HD 250 on Friday at Daytona International Speedway in Florida.

The delegation has yet to meet with the cabinet ministers they intended to, including Prime Minister Stephan Harper, but have managed to sit down with Prince George-Peace River MP Bob Zimmer and Senator Yonah Martin.They have however met with many opposition leaders, including NDP leader Tom Mulcair, Green leader Elizabeth May, Liberal MP Joyce Murray and several other senators.You can read the entire Vancouver Sun article here.With files from the Vancouver Sun Advertisement West Moberly First Nation chief, Roland Willson told the Vancouver Sun that if the federal government approves the project, the delegation won’t hesitate to take the decision to the Supreme Court.The provincial and federal government is expected to make an announcement on their decision by October 22, at which point, one of three outcomes will become the end result; an environmental certificate for the project is issued, the certificate is denied, or an order will be issued that further assessment is required.The group is expecting the federal government will find themselves in opposition of the project, as the federal/provincial joint review panel has already determined that the dam is likely to cause adverse effects on the land and subsequently fishing opportunities and other First Nation practices. It also found that B.C. Hydro has not fully demonstrated the need for the project on the timetable set forth.- Advertisement -Victoria has argued that both the region’s growing population and the gas/mining industries are in serious need for this type of relatively clean hydroelectric energy.The proposed dam and 1,100-megawatt hydroelectric generating station is slated for the Peace River, which if constructed, is reported to result in 86 kilometers of flooding and the destruction of farmland and wildlife habitat.While many chiefs hold strong opposition to the project, they’ve also gone on record to say they’re interested in contributing to other smaller projects, including wind, solar and geothermal power.Advertisement
