first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champWhile the majority of those who have died have been in central Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley communities had a number of homeless deaths. No specific numbers were counted for the San Gabriel Valley, but Bob Erlenbusch, executive director of the Los Angeles Coalition to End Hunger & Homelessness, estimated about 150 homeless deaths. “It’s a hard, hard life out there,” said Irene Kubo, executive director of the East San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless, which runs the area’s cold weather shelter. “They’re prone to all the normal things we are, but the problem is they don’t get proper care,” Kubo said. “You can take the normal run of physical ailments that the general public has and increase it in quantity and degree because of health care. Their lifespans are cut short by 30 or 40 years.” The average age among those found dead was 48, about 36 percent less than the average life span. The cause of nearly half the deaths was cardiovascular disease coupled with substance abuse. Nearly one in five were killed violently as victims of homicide, suicide or other trauma. “They’re very vulnerable to violence,” said Judy Hall, outreach worker for Pomona Homeless Outreach. “Whatever little bit they have gets taken. We’ve had them come in so afraid they’ll be killed.” “The human cost of the tragedy of homelessness in the richest country in the history of the planet is illustrated by these statistics,” said Torie Osborn, senior adviser to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “And it’s heartbreaking. I think it just shows we have a long way to go to step up and take care of our most vulnerable citizens. I mean to die alone and on the streets – what could be a sadder Christmas?” According to the report, Los Angeles County is the “homeless capital of the nation,” with an estimated 73,000 homeless. Yet only 17 percent of the county’s homeless are able to find shelter, the lowest percentage of any major metropolitan area in the nation. Advocates said a major contributor is lack of accessible services. “Medical services are a tremendous need in the area of helping homeless,” said Terry Hammack, who does outreach for Whittier First Day, a 45-bed shelter and recovery center. “L.A. County provides services, but so many of them are centered in Los Angeles. We just don’t get a lot of resources out here and it’s a big problem.” Kitty Galt and her partner, Ruben Gallegos, outreach workers for Pacific Clinics in Pasadena, said they stopped counting homeless deaths at 14 over the last 24 months. Pasadena had a total of 55 deaths since 2000, according to the study. “When somebody becomes ill or has some kind of crisis, their mental health may make it impossible for them to reach out,” Galt said. “Ordinary health conditions may exacerbate a medical condition, and we may not get there in time.” The report contains seven major recommendations for the city and county to improve services to the homeless, but its major recommendation is to make permanent housing options for the homeless a regional priority. “A number of these deaths are preventable,” said Erlenbusch. “With no resources and forced to live outside, in their cars and in abandoned buildings, it’s no wonder that hundreds of homeless people die without dignity in our community every year. “This is just shameful.” Staff writer Bethania Palma contributed to this report.

Nearly 3,000 homeless people have died in Los Angeles County since 2000, many alone and forgotten, according to the first study of its kind by the Los Angeles Coalition to End Hunger & Homelessness. The study – which also lists all of the names of those who have died – was based on coroner’s records and is being formally released today, designated as National Homeless Memorial Day. The report comes as county efforts to institute a wide-ranging and comprehensive homeless shelter program have moved slowly amid funding and other complicating factors. On average, one homeless person dies every day in the county, according to the report. last_img read more

first_imgALL eyes might be on Galway this week, but Donegal jockey Martin Harley has been the toast of the biggest meet in England this week – Glorious Goodwood.He helped Bungleinthejungle, a 14-1 shot, produce a storming late rally to nail 2-1 favourite Morawij right on the line.His chances appeared bleak after Morawij kicked three-quarters of a length clear inside the final furlong, but the Mick Channon-trained colt refused to be denied and Harley battled back in the most valiant fashion to get the verdict by a head. It was a third Molecomb success for Channon, and a long overdue Group success in Britain for part-owner Christopher Wright, who used to regularly dine at racing’s top table.“That’s my first Group winner in England for an awful long time,” he said. “I’m thrilled.”Martin Harley, who is enjoying a magnificent season as stable jockey to Channon, said: “They went very fast early on, but Bungle Inthejungle sees out five furlongs very well. He’s tough, with a big heart, and battled on really well.“This year is going great, and big thanks to the boss, who hassupported me with plenty of rides.” From what we hear, there’s a fair few punters around Letterkenny celebrating – having put a few quid on the 14-1 shot.  GLORIOUS GOODWOOD FOR DONEGAL JOCKEY was last modified: August 1st, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:GLORIOUS GOODWOOD FOR DONEGAL JOCKEYlast_img read more

first_imgMichael Murphy returns for Donegal this weekend after missing the Mayo game through suspension.Donegal captain Michael Murphy and All-Star midfielder Neil Gallagher are expected to come into Rory Gallagher’s starting team for Sunday’s National League semi-final with Cork.Murphy missed Donegal’s draw with Mayo due to suspension, the Glenswilly clubman was given his third black card of the campaign against Tyrone and that ensured he missed the clash in Castlebar.Neil Gallagher sustained a hamstring problem during the Tyrone match and wasn’t deemed fit enough to feature against Mayo. It’s believed the towering midfielder has been progressing well with his rehab programme from the injury and should play against Cork.Donegal will form part of a Division One National League semi-final double header.Dublin will play Monaghan in the other semi-final at HQ.Ryan McHugh and Hugh McFadden have been regular starters for Rory Gallagher’s side all season but have also been influential figures for the U21 side that reached the Ulster Final. They narrowly lost out to Tyrone last night and both players have amassed a lot of matches already this season and last night’s final was a physical encounter with McHugh and McFadden were both the subject of cynical fouling.It’ll be interesting to see if both players will start on Sunday in Croke Park.Gallagher otherwise has a full squad to choose from for the clash with the Rebel County as all the players who featured for their clubs on Easter Monday came through unscathed.Donegal already defeated Cork earlier in the league campaign in Ballyshannon and will be confident of sealing a place in a Division One league decider for the first since 2007.  MURPHY AND GALLAGHER TO RETURN FOR SEMI-FINAL CLASH WITH CORK AT CROKE PARK was last modified: April 9th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:CorkdonegalGAAMichael MurphyNational LeagueNeil GallaghernewsSportlast_img read more
