Dan Cohen AUTHOR With much of the surplus property created when March Air Force Base in Southern California was realigned two decades ago built out or under development, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors wants to take the first steps to unwind the March Joint Powers Authority (JPA).“The heavy lifting as far as the planning and putting the base into shape has all been done,” said Supervisor Marion Ashley. “Basically, all the land out there is in development agreements with reputable developers.”On Tuesday, the lawmakers approved a resolution to pursue dissolving the JPA, which would allow the county to discontinue its $600,000 annual subsidy to the authority. The agency was formed following the 1993 round of BRAC to develop 4,400 acres left over when the installation was converted to March Air Reserve Base.The JPA board, which also is discussing its future, would have to agree to any changes as the county has no authority to dissolve the agency on its own, reported the Press-Enterprise. At this point, the board is considering a plan to divide the former March property among the county and the three cities neighboring it — Riverside, Moreno Valley and Perris.“The first step would be to bring the March land all back to the county and then we could work out the possible annexation agreements,” Ashley said. “The other cities are going to have their ideas. They can give their approaches and we’ll work it all out to eventually dissolve this March JPA,” he said.Under Ashley’s plan, the JPA would continue to exist as an airport authority for the civilian operations at the joint use airport at March ARB.Working out the details will not be easy. Perris Mayor Daryl Busch, president of the JPA board, said the relevant stakeholders are willing to work out the process of winding down the JPA, but he believes it will take years of negotiations to complete.“The whole process calls for a fair and equal share by all four agencies. That’s going to be difficult,” Busch said.

While there are reports that claim that something might happen between Irina and Alec, some beg to differ. According to The New York Times, Alec has been in a longterm relationship with British Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful!

The government is set to free 53 convicted criminals, including top terror Tofail Ahmed alias Joseph. A committee formed by the home ministry has made the list as per the recommendations of the ministers and MPs, ministry sources said.When asked why these top criminals are being freed, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told Prothom Alo that this provision is not applicable for controversial figures.It is being done as per the law, but if anyone has any complaints, they will take that into consideration, the minister said.As per Article 569 of the jail code, the government may set a criminal free after he has served two thirds of his jail term, provided that he has no more cases against him. And this does not need the approval of the president.The committee initially recommended 297 names, but the home ministry brought that down to 53 after considering a number of issues, including the crime, age and duration of the sentence, said a senior officer of the ministry.The list is now being sent to the law ministry for vetting. It will then be sent to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). Once the PM approves, they will be set free within a month, the official added.Law minister Anisul Huq said this provision is for petty offences. When asked if top terrors can walk free, using of this loophole, he said, “No chance. No way is this article applicable for them.”Top terror Joseph has 11 cases, including murder and arms related ones, against him. He was in the hospital for around 20 months despite not being ill. He was recently shifted to the Dhaka Central Jail after a Prothom Alo unearthed his stay at the hospital. However, the home ministry did recommend his name to be freed.Jogesshor Gope is another name in the list. He was sentenced to life in prison for killing a sweetmeat businessman. However, his name has been recommended by Md Abu Zahir, an MP from Habiganj and the district Awami League president. Jogesshor is a brother of Habiganj assistant public prosecutor (APP) Jyotish Chandra Gope.Sulekha Gope, sister of the murdered Shanto Gope, alleged that their life will be hell if her brother’s murder is freed.Abbas Hawlader was sentenced to death for throwing acid on a schoolgirl at Baufal in Patuakhali, but the Supreme Court later handed him life in jail. Nizam Uddin, another criminal who was awarded life sentence, was freed over two years back. Now he has joined the ruling Awami League. The girl told Prothom Alo that she and her family will be in deep trouble if Abbas walks out of jail.Madaripur top terror Nepulian Khondakar Nepu is in jail in a murder case. He has a number of other allegations, including extortion, against him as well. Shipping minister Shahjahan Khan has recommended for the release of Nepu, whose brother is a police officer.Former chairman of National Human Rights Commission Mizanur Rahman said this provision has to be used with utmost cautiousness. Convicted killers or top terrors should not get away using this loophole, he added.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Quamrul Hassan.
Listen Al OrtizHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner wants to remove the revenue cap and says the latest cut to the property tax rate will only represent saving of $32 for the average Houstonian.The Houston City Council approved cutting the city’s property tax rate to the lowest it has been since the late 1980s and the revenue cap is a crucial factor in the decision.Houston City Council members approved lowering the rate to 58 cents on each $100 of taxable home value to comply with the revenue cap, which was established in 2004 through a referendum.The cap forces the city to limit the annual growth of property tax revenue based on a formula that combines rates of inflation and population growth.Mayor Sylvester Turner wants to remove the cap to have more revenue to fund the city’s growing costs and thinks the savings for taxpayers are minimal.“For the average Houstonian, they will see, I’ll say, about $32 that they will be paying less to the city than they would have paid under the old property tax rate for the entire year,” Turner said during the customary press conference held after the council’s meeting.Council member Dave Martin who represents District E, which includes Kingwood and Clear Lake, says some of his constituents tell him they could support doing away with the cap, but they tie it to a more efficient local government.“People are looking at me saying: ‘Yeah, you are headed down the right path,” Martin said during the council meeting “but there are various inefficiencies within city departments you guys need to cure. And then when you cure that, here’s my money’.”Removing the revenue cap can only happen if voters approve it and Turner says he will not put that choice before Houstonians until next November because he wants to first focus on solving the city’s pension reform.

By ELANA SCHOR, Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Cory Booker on Friday declared his bid for the presidency in 2020 with a sweeping call to unite a deeply polarized nation around a “common purpose.”The New Jersey Democrat, who is the second Black candidate in a primary field that’s already historically diverse, delivered his message of unity amid an era marked by bitter political division. He announced his run on the first day of Black History Month, underscoring his consequential status as America’s potential second Black president after Barack Obama.In this Oct. 28, 2018, file photo, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., looks up as he takes a selfie with an attendee after speaking attends at a get out the vote event hosted by the NH Young Democrats at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, N.H. (AP Photo/ Cheryl Senter, File)“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” Booker said in a video message to supporters, subtly jabbing at President Donald Trump.“It is not a matter of can we, it’s a matter of do we have the collective will, the American will?” he added. “I believe we do.”Booker enters what’s shaping up to be a crowded presidential primary, with three of his fellow Democratic senators — Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York — already either declared or exploring a run. But he’s spent months telegraphing his intentions to join the race, visiting the early-voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina to build connections with key powerbrokers. He already has slated trips back to those states later this month.Booker began reaching out to key constituencies Friday, calling in to three radio shows popular with Black and Hispanic listeners. He spoke in fluent Spanish during his interview with Univision, vowing to work closely with “the Latino community,” and discussed his support for marijuana legalization in another interview. Later on Friday, Booker will be a guest on “The View,” a TV talk show popular with female viewers, where his mother plans to sit in the audience.A former mayor of Newark, New Jersey’s largest city, Booker won a special Senate election in 2013 to replace Democrat Frank Lautenberg and then won a full Senate term in 2014. He will be able to run for a second full Senate term in 2020 while running for president, thanks to a law that New Jersey’s governor signed in November.But that doesn’t mean the 49-year-old’s path to the nomination will be easy. As many as five more Democratic senators could soon mount their own primary bids, creating a competition for voters’ attention, and several of Booker’s rival presidential hopefuls bring higher name recognition to a race that may also feature popular former Vice President Joe Biden.The affable Booker, known for his fluency in connecting with voters during an age of selfies and social media, also could face some difficulty winning the hearts of the Democratic base due to his past financial ties to banking and pharmaceutical interests. Booker said he would stop taking contributions from pharmaceutical companies in 2017, the year that he partnered with potential presidential rival Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont on a bill that would allow importation of prescription drugs from Canada.He also likely will stand alone as an unmarried candidate, though he brings a compelling personal biography that could help elevate his message that “the only way we can make change is when people come together.”Booker’s father grew up in a low-income community in North Carolina, and the senator has recalled his family’s later struggle to settle in suburban New Jersey amid discrimination against Black homebuyers. The senator has brought a heartfelt and passionate style to his achievements in the Senate, at times fusing his personal spirituality with policy proposals that focus on social justice. Booker played a key role in the bipartisan criminal justice reform bill thatTrump supported last year, for example, helping strike that deal two months after sparring with Republicans during the battle over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.In his announcement video, Booker invoked the fight against slavery and the role of immigration in building the nation’s character.“The history of our nation is defined by collective action; by interwoven destinies of slaves and abolitionists; of those born here and those who chose America as home; of those who took up arms to defend our country and those who linked arms to challenge and change it,” he said.Born in the nation’s capital but raised in New Jersey, Booker made a name for himself as Newark mayor by personally shoveling the snow of residents. He has $4.1 million left in his campaign coffers that could also be used to assist his presidential run. Rather than opening an exploratory committee to test the waters, Booker took the direct step to open a campaign seeking the Democratic nomination.Booker is aligning with many other prominent Democratic White House contenders by forswearing all donations from corporate political action committees and federal lobbyists to his campaign, dubbed Cory 2020. A prominent Booker supporter, San Francisco attorney Steve Phillips, says he is working on millions of dollars in committed donations to a so-called super PAC that would boost the senator’s candidacy, but Booker’s campaign is openly against super PACs playing any role in the presidential race.Booker visited his local congregation at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Newark on Thursday night for prayers ahead of his Friday announcement, a decision that underscores the role his faith will play in his campaign. He has attended service at the church since moving to Newark in 1996.Booker’s campaign manager will be Addisu Demissie, who managed California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaign last year and previously worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid. His deputy campaign manager, Jenna Lowenstein, is also a veteran of Clinton’s 2016 campaign, while his current Senate chief of staff, Matt Klapper, will serve as a senior campaign adviser.
