L.A. steps back from plans to expand power generation fossil-fuel footprint

first_imgL.A. steps back from plans to expand power generation fossil-fuel footprint FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Los Angeles Times:Los Angeles is abandoning a plan to spend billions of dollars rebuilding three natural gas power plants along the coast, Mayor Eric Garcetti said Monday, in a move to get the city closer to its goal of 100% renewable energy and improve air quality in highly polluted communities.The mayor’s decision marks an abrupt change of course for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, where top staffers have argued in recent months that the gas plants are critical to keeping the lights on in the city. Environmental groups have urged DWP to replace the aging facilities with cleaner alternatives, saying the gas-fired plants need to go because they contribute to climate change and local air pollution.Los Angeles has steadily moved away from coal for electricity, divesting from the Navajo plant in Arizona three years ago and announcing plans to stop buying power from Utah’s Intermountain plant by 2025. But with coal, the most polluting fossil fuel, now nearly removed from the city’s energy mix, it’s time to start planning for a future with zero planet-warming energy sources, Garcetti said Monday — and that means no natural gas.“It’s the right thing to do for our health. It’s the right thing to do for our Earth. It’s the right thing to do for our economy,” Garcetti said. “And now is the time to start the beginning of the end of natural gas.”More: Los Angeles ditches plan to invest billions in fossil fuels, Mayor Eric Garcetti sayslast_img read more

Football Bearcats rally past Cazenovia; Mustangs oust CVA

first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Confronted with the possible conclusion of its dream season, the Solvay football team responded the way a champion would.The Bearcats rallied from four different seven-point deficits in Friday night’s opening-round Section III Class B playoff game against Cazenovia, scoring the game’s final 21 points to defeat the Lakers 42-28 and improve to 8-0.Not far away, Marcellus also kept its sectional championship hopes alive, the Mustangs holding off visiting Central Valley Academy 17-14 to move to 7-1, its lone blemish a defeat to Solvay.At Al Merola Field, Solvay was hosting a post-season game for the first time in a decade. It just so happened that Cazenovia was on the other side, and even though the Lakers had finished fourth in Class B East, it still carried a deep recent history of playoff success, having reached at least the sectional finals each of the last seven years.And it was the Lakers striking first, pinning Solvay inside its five-yard line with the opening kickoff and forcing a bad punt that set up a short field and Ryan Romagnoli’s 15-yard touchdown run less than four minutes into the game.As it would do all night, the Bearcats answered, Brock Bagozzi’s passes setting up a 16-yard scoring strike to Justin Scott. They stayed 7-7 through the end of the first quarter, each side fumbling the ball away on consecutive plays.Not even a minute into the second period, Romagnoli scored again on a 15-yard run after setting up the TD with a 29-yard pass to Keegan Bailey. Two minutes later, it was tied again, 14-14, two long Bagozzi pass plays leading to an eight-yard strike to Zach Bowen.Romagnoli found Bailey again on a three-yard TD pass after his own 50-yard kick return set it up. Solvay responded this time with a 71-yard drive, all on the ground, with Blaine Franklin accounting for most of the yards until Elijah Wright scored on fourth and goal with 1:21 left in the half.Intermission arrived with the Bearcats and Lakers level at 21-21, but they were far from done exchanging momentum.Bailey’s interception midway through the third quarter was followed, seconds later, by him catching a 26-yard screen pass from Romagnoli and Ty Freyer finding the end zone one play later.Solvay absorbed this and, trailing for the fourth time at 28-21, had Bagozzi throw 41 yards to Bowen to launch another drive that, on fourth-and-goal, ended with Bagozzi throwing four yards to Scott in the end zone.A.J. Rothfeld blocked Ethan Bigelow’s extra point to preserve a 28-27 Cazenovia lead, but as it had done throughout the season when tested, the Bearcats came up with big plays.None was more important than defensive end Brad Lando’s interception of a Romagnoli screen pass inside the Cazenovia 15 that led to Wright’s go-ahead two-yard TD run in the first minute of the fourth quarter.Bagozzi ran in for two points, and Solvay led for the first time, 35-28. More importantly, its defense began to contain Cazenovia’s multifaceted attack, making three crucial stops as the game went down the stretch.To put the game away, Bagozzi made two big completions – 15 yards to Scott, 13 yards to Russell Tarbell on fourth down – which led to Jaimen Bliss, returning to the offense after missing two games due to injury, going 15 yards for the clinching score with 1:49 left.Solvay now advances to face New Hartford (who defeated South Jefferson 35-12) in the sectional semifinals, while Marcellus will face 8-0 Oneida in the wake of its hard-fought win over a Central Valley Academy side that entered the night with a five-game win streak.Throughout the first half, the Mustangs used its trademark ground game to move the ball at will against the Thunder’s defense. Twice, it led to the end zone as Nick Kermes scored on a pair of three-yard runs.As it turned out, though, it was Paul Stewart’s 22-yard field goal just before halftime that was the most important points of the night, for it provided some insurance against CVA’s comeback attempt.Michael Dihrberg threw a 33-yard TD pass to Cole Brewer in the second quarter to get the Thunder on the board, and CVA scored again in the third period. But all through a tense fourth quarter, the Mustangs’ defense made the stops it needed.And now the sectional Class B semifinals loom. next Friday, Marcellus and Oneida meet at 6:30 at Vernon-Verona-Sherrill and, a half-hour later, Solvay kicks off against New Hartford at Jamesville-DeWitt, with berths in the Nov. 9 sectional final at the Dome on the line.

Could Julio Urias be a boost to Dodgers’ bullpen? Dave Roberts thinks so

first_imgATLANTA – Maybe Dave Roberts is a practical man. And maybe he has seen all the relievers changing teams recently and noticed they weren’t showing up in his clubhouse.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.“I think you can always get better and poke holes in your ballclub,” the Dodgers manager said when asked about his team’s need to upgrade its bullpen before Monday’s non-waiver trade deadline. “But when you look at (Pedro) Baez coming back, you’ve got (Josh) Fields coming back, getting close, (Tony) Cingrani getting close and you have six starters. We know we’re not going to run six starters out there for the duration of the season. Ultimately, somebody’s going to have to go to the ‘pen.“So there’s some depth there. But if there’s a deal to be had I’m sure our guys (in the front office) will be on it. … With what we have, to go outside and do something just to do something, it’s gotta really make sense because there’s a lot of good arms that we have that we know that we trust internally.”Starters Kenta Maeda, Ross Stripling and Alex Wood all have experience pitching out of the bullpen to varying degrees. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Roberts also raised the possibility that the Dodgers’ bullpen could get a boost for the stretch run from the return of Julio Urias.As his recovery from major shoulder surgery over a year ago has reached its final stages, the young left-hander has become a blank canvas upon which hopes can be projected. Urias has only recently begun throwing to hitters in simulated-game sessions, a workout Roberts said Urias will probably replicate in Los Angeles next week.Realistically, Urias will need extensive time in the minors to build his arm into game shape after not facing hitters in a competitive situation since June 10 of last year. There might not be enough time left in this season for him to build up to the pitch-count level required of a starting pitcher.So now, Roberts’ projections are that Urias could return in a bullpen role down the stretch.“Our thoughts are there’s not enough time in the calendar to build him up as a starter,” Roberts said.Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Urias underwent a major reconstruction of his pitching shoulder 13 months ago, however. It is reasonable to question how much of his former dynamic abilities the 21-year-old will be able to recover – this year or beyond. The track record of pitchers undergoing similar surgeries is not great.“We don’t know what we’re going to get,” Roberts acknowledged. “But I would say in the postseason in ‘16 and his first taste of the big leagues in ‘17, the heartbeat and the stuff – and from what I understand right now the stuff is really coming — to get him back in a short stint, that is something we feel comfortable we could bet on. We don’t know until we see it. But we’re all excited for this.”REHAB ROUNDUPOutfielder Yasiel Puig completed his rehab assignment and joined the Dodgers Friday. He will be activated from the DL on Saturday. Puig has been out since injuring an oblique muscle in his right side on July 8.Third baseman Justin Turner did an agility and core workout and took part in batting practice Friday. Turner is making progress in his recovery from an adductor muscle injury in his right leg. He will be eligible to come off the DL next Thursday.“To say he’s going to be back on the 11th day, we’re not sure yet,” Roberts said.UP NEXTDodgers LHP Alex Wood (6-5, 3.87 ERA) at Braves LHP Max Fried (1-3, 3.92 ERA), Saturday, 4:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only)m,m, Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
