When the decision was issued, Sierra Madre, which has a tiered water rate structure created for compliance with Prop 218 requirements, reviewed its own water rate study to ensure that the City’s tiers are also consistent with the Court’s decision.After review, City Attorney Highsmith stated, “Sierra Madre’s tiered rates comply with the recent Appellate Court decision because the City’s water rate tiers reflect the cost of providing water at the various tier levels, as required by Prop 218. The City’s rate study shows that each rate is tied to the cost of providing the water.” City Manager Aguilar further stated, “In 2013, when Sierra Madre completed the most recent rate study, the City was fully aware of the San Juan Capistrano case and took efforts to make sure the tiers were tied to the cost of providing water at the different tier levels.”It is important to note that the Court of Appeal did not decide that all tiered water rates are illegal, rather the Court analyzed Prop 218 requirements and determined that the rates in each tier must reflect the cost of service for property owners falling in that tier. Sierra Madre’s 2013 Rate Study used a different methodology to determine the rates per tier, as compared to the San Juan Capistrano rate study. Sierra Madre’s complete rate study can be found on the website at, http://cityofsierramadre.com/water.The Court of Appeal case is Capistrano Taxpayers Association, Inc. v. City of San Juan Capistrano Case No. G048969.For further information regarding water conservation, or the City’s water rate structure, please contact City Hall at (626) 355-7135.

But copies of the emergency regulations leaked to Israeli media showed that police would be able to retrieve location data of coronavirus carriers — as well as quarantined people — from phone companies, without a court order.The Shin Bet would also be able to use the location data of coronavirus carriers for the 14 days preceding their diagnosis “to identify their routes and the people with whom they came in contact with,” the leaked material said. The government “authorized the Shin Bet to put its advanced technologies in the service of the national effort to reduce the spread of coronavirus,” a Shin Bet statement said Tuesday.A Shin Bet spokesperson separately told AFP that the policy has taken “immediate” effect. “The Shin Bet is aware this is a task that goes beyond its routine anti-terror activities,” Shin Bet chief Nadav Argaman said in the agency’s statement, adding that “oversight and regulating mechanisms” had been established. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office refused to provide details about the monitoring techniques to be used. Israel’s internal security agency Shin Bet said Tuesday it has been mandated to collect information about citizens to fight the spread of the deadly coronavirus, a task it was undertaking with “immediate” effect.Involvement of the spy agency in tackling the pandemic has raised concerns about adherence to democratic norms, with one legal expert fearing it harms “trust and legitimacy” and an analyst describing it as a “dangerous precedent”.The measure was approved by the government under emergency regulations, overriding a parliamentary committee that on Monday had withheld final approval, saying it needed more time to ensure proper safeguarding. ‘Cloak & dagger’ Argaman said the information would be given to the health ministry and not stored by the Shin Bet. Gabi Ashkenazi, who heads the parliamentary committee that withheld approval, said Tuesday that using Shin Bet against the virus was not appropriate “without parliamentary and public supervision.”Ashkenazi, a member of the Blue and White coalition that rivals Netanyahu’s Likud party, called for a new foreign and defence committee to “implement the supervision necessary by law.”Netanyahu’s cabinet had approved the move at his behest on Sunday, before it moved to parliament for consideration.Netanyahu defended his later emergency move, saying that “even an hour’s delay using these tools could lead to the death of many Israelis”.In a statement, the premier’s office also claimed parliamentary deliberations could have taken “many days.”He and his attorney general therefore “swiftly” approved the emergency measures that are valid for 14 days, during which time lawmakers can express their reservations. Michael Birnhack, a law professor at Tel Aviv University, said the coronavirus crisis has been steered into a security issue.”Instead of trust and solidarity [‘do you agree we check your location?’] we’ve gone into cloak and dagger, suspicion lack of trust,” he wrote on Twitter.”It might be efficient but it harms trust and legitimacy,” he said. “The intentions here are good, but the path is problematic. The fear is this will remain long after the crisis is over.”Speaking before the emergency regulations, Tehilla Shwartz Altshuler of the Israel Democracy Institute (IDI) said involving Shin Bet would set “a dangerous precedent” that risked being a precursor to interventions in other sectors.A security official told AFP on Monday the Shin Bet would not conduct “active penetration into phones” and “there won’t be cyber-attacks.”Netanyahu’s continued tenure as premier is uncertain, with President Reuven Rivlin on Monday formally handing centrist rival Benny Gantz a mandate to try to form a new government.Gantz has been given 28 days to put together a coalition, after he garnered recommendations from 61 out of 120 lawmakers on Sunday, in the wake of an election held on March 2 – Israel’s third national polls within a year.

Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros “Just replay the fifth,” Maddon said. “It looked like he had a difficult time time getting through the fifth. He leads off the sixth with a five-pitch walk. It looked like he lost his rhythm. His velocity was coming down.”Heaney’s final pitch was an 89.7 mph fastball. He had averaged 92 mph in the first two innings, then 91 in the third and 90 in the fourth, fifth and sixth.Maddon said he did not pull Heaney with any health concerns in mind, in contrast to his 67-pitch hook on Opening Night. In that game, Heaney was coming off a minor bout with back stiffness that had resulted in him being scratched from his final scheduled intrasquad start.On that night the Angels blew a seventh-inning lead and lost in 10 innings.Heaney said he felt “fine” and “I was a little surprised to see Joe making his way out.”“I understand analytically what the numbers say with third time through the lineup,” Heaney said, “but I felt like (Jason) Castro and I had done a good job of trying to sneak as many fastballs in there as we could early on in the game and given ourselves a chance to start mixing it up a little bit more the third time through, and getting a better feel for some of those pitches.”After Heaney was pulled, Mayers entered and proceeded to allow four of the next six batters to reach, including a three-run homer to Dylan Moore that put Seattle up 6-4.The Angels immediately rallied with three runs of their own, on Upton’s homer and Goodwin’s double, to retake the lead.Barnes then started the seventh and couldn’t get an out. He gave up a single and then back-to-back walks, loading the bases as Ty Buttrey was summoned to try to bail him out. Buttrey retired all three hitters he faced, but the first two outs pushed home runs.“Walking too many guys, not being assertive in the strike zone,” Maddon said. “We actually lined it (up) pretty well. I liked what we had once we got through Andrew. Mayers just had a tough game…“Mayers and Barnes we have a lot of faith in and anticipate a better result, just can’t pile on guys like that if they’ve had a bad night.”The Mariners added some insurance in the eighth, when Crawford singled to cap a 10-pitch at-bat against Ryan Buchter and drove in two runs.The Angels have now lost games when leading in the seventh inning or later twice in the first six games. It’s the difference between a 4-2 start and a 2-4 start in this sprint of a 60-game season.The bullpen meltdown spoiled a night that could have been about Ohtani’s offensive awakening.Ohtani started the season 1 for 12 before drilling a double off the right-field fence on Tuesday night. Maddon suggested that could give him confidence that would get him on a roll.Sure enough, Ohtani smoked a 107 mph line drive in his first at-bat on Wednesday, only to be robbed of a hit by diving right fielder Tim Lopes.In Ohtani’s next trip, in the fourth with two runners on, he fell behind Justin Dunn, 0 and 2. Dunn threw Ohtani a curve ball that ducked below the zone, but Ohtani golfed it over the fence in right-center.Upton’s homer in the sixth, which cut a two-run deficit in half, made him the ninth active player to reach 300 homers.“I think every milestone is special,” Upton said. “This one is right up there. It was a special night. I definitely wish we would have gotten a win, but I enjoyed that moment.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error They spoiled a night in which Shohei Ohtani hit a three-run homer, his first of the year, and Justin Upton hit the 300th homer of his career. Brian Goodwin also homered and had a two-run double.All of that should have been enough after Andrew Heaney allowed just one run through five innings. He took a 4-1 lead to the sixth, when the game began to unravel.Heaney was in total control for the first three innings, facing the minimum and striking out five and needing just 36 pitches for nine outs.His second time through the lineup was a little more challenging. He gave up four hits, but escaped with just one run on the board, in part because Dee Gordon was thrown out trying to steal third in the fifth.Heaney walked J.P. Crawford to start the sixth, the fifth batter in the previous 10 to reach base, so Maddon pulled Heaney after 64 pitches. ANAHEIM — Mike Mayers and Jacob Barnes, a pair of relievers who had been favorites of Joe Maddon, endured a rough night to cost the Angels a victory.The Angels blew leads in the sixth and seventh innings on their way to a 10-7 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.PreviousSeattle Mariners starting pitcher Justin Dunn throws to the plate during the first inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Angels Wednesday, July 29, 2020, in Anaheim, Calif.

WEEK 10 NON-PPR RANKINGSQuarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerThe story of Jones’ season has been more frustrating. Almost every game, he was more effective than Peyton Barber but rarely saw more work. Sunday, though, Jones outcarried Barber 18 to four and gained 67 yards with a touchdown on the ground. He also remained on the field in many late-game passing situations that normally fall to Dare Ogunbowale. Because of how frustrating Bruce Arians’ backfield split has been, we can’t say for certain that Jones will remain the man. But he’s still unowned in a lot of leagues, and if he can get 15 carries a game, he’s also in the RB2 range.One of the more intriguing battles to watch as the week goes on is in Arizona, where Kenyan Drake played better than expected in his Cardinals debut against the tough 49ers’ defense. David Johnson (back, ankle) and/or Chase Edmonds (hamstring) should have a chance to make it back from injury after last Thursday’s game. Kliff Kingsbury has said it will be a committee, although you’d have to imagine that Johnson, if fully healthy, will get the bulk of the work there. Any back in that fast-paced offense has fantasy value with enough workload, though.WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWe’d be concerned more about Chris Carson’s matchup (@ 49ers) this week if not for how successful Drake was against San Francisco. Carson did fumble twice Sunday, losing one, so that return of an early-season narrative is worth keeping an eye on. We’ll also continue to watch the backfield split with the Niners, where Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman continue to share carries, and with the Chargers, where Melvin Gordon finally looked a bit like his old self in Week 9.WEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPPBye weeks knock off a number of committee backfields this week: Royce Freeman/Phillip Lindsay, Sony Michel/James White, Jordan Howard/Miles Sanders, Carlos Hyde/Duke Johnson and Adrian Peterson are all off. The most notable player on bye at RB is Leonard Fournette.MORE WEEK 10:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Snap counts | Trade values | Fantasy playoff SOS Reminder: These rankings will be adjusted throughout week, so check back often for the latest updates and analysis!MORE WEEK 10 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderWeek 10 Fantasy RB RankingsThese rankings are for standard, non-PPR leagues.RankPlayer1Christian McCaffrey, CAR @ GB2Saquon Barkley, NYG @ NYJ3Alvin Kamara, NO vs. ATL. We’ll have to see how Kamara (ankle) is doing health-wise out of the Saints’ bye, but he should be in line for a big week as long as he’s healthy.4Dalvin Cook, MIN @ DAL5Ezekiel Elliott, DAL vs. MIN6Derrick Henry, TEN vs. KC. Henry continues to be one of the highest-volume running backs in football, and the Chiefs allow the third-most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to backs. Expect a big week.7Josh Jacobs, OAK vs. LAC8Nick Chubb, CLE vs. BUF9Marlon Mack, IND vs. MIA. No matter whether Jacoby Brissett or Brian Hoyer is starting, you can rely on Mack against the Dolphins porous run defense.10Mark Ingram, BAL @ CIN. The Bengals allow the second-most FPPG to RBs, so while Ingram might not normally rank quite this high, it’s deserved for Week 10. 11Le’Veon Bell, NYJ vs. NYG12David Montgomery, CHI vs. DET. The Lions allow the most FPPG to running backs this year. Montgomery almost always sees double-digit carries and a little passing-game involvement, so as long as he gets his usual workload, he should have Week 10 success.13Todd Gurley, LAR @ PIT14David Johnson, ARZ @ TB. Johnson (ankle, back), Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds (hamstring) all would have value if the other two were out, but if more than one is active, you have to defer to DJ, who has the most upside and should be heavily involved in the passing game, even with Drake in town.15Chris Carson, SEA @ SF. The Niners run defense is less scary after Kenyan Drake had success against it, but Carson’s two Week 9 fumbles (one lost) have us a little concerned about his job security, at least enough to bump him down this far. 16Aaron Jones, GB vs. CAR17Devonta Freeman, ATL @ NO18Tevin Coleman, SF vs. SEA. Matt Breida remains too heavily involved to count on any more four-TD games in the near future, but Coleman is still an important player in a run-first offense and should start in fantasy leagues because of that. 19Jaylen Samuels, PIT vs. LAR. Most of Samuels’ value seems likely to come from his catches — he had 13 in Week 9 — while James Conner (shoulder) is out. If Conner is back, you can forget about Samuels, who at least has the potential to do more in the run game.20Devin Singletary, BUF @ CLE. He finally outdid Frank Gore in carries, rushing 20 times in Week 9. The Singletary takeover of this backfield looks about complete, and so you can start him as an RB2 with confidence. 21Ronald Jones, TB vs. ARZ. Jones outcarried Peyton Barber 18-4 in Week 9, and we want to think that will continue. Because of how Bruce Arians seems to continuously fool us, it may not, but you’ve got to be on Jones at least in Week 10 against an Arizona defense allowing 4.4 yards per carry to running backs. 22Joe Mixon, CIN vs. BAL23Melvin Gordon, LAC @ OAK. Finally, Gordon looked like a solid NFL running back again with 20 carries for 80 yards and two touchdowns in Week 9. It appears he’s the lead dog again in this backfield and works as an RB2 most weeks going forward. 24Damien Williams, KC @ TEN. Williams and McCoy keep swapping back and forth, but after 125 rushing yards (including a 91-yard touchdown run), it’s Williams that gets the edge in our rankings this week.25Austin Ekeler, LAC @ OAK26Jamaal Williams, GB vs. CAR27Matt Breida, SF vs. SEA28Ty Johnson, DET @ CHI. Johnson will probably lead the Lions in carries but struggle to create much momentum on the ground. The medium volume makes him playable as an unexciting FLEX option. 29Kenyan Drake, ARZ @ TB. If Johnson and Edmonds remain out, slide Drake up the rankings, as he’ll be looking at a heavy workload after running well in his first game with the Cardinals.30Trey Edmunds, PIT vs. LAR. Edmunds had 12 carries for 73 yards with James Conner out Sunday, so if that injury status repeats itself, maybe Edmunds can repeat his ground production, too. 31Latavius Murray, NO vs. ATL. If Alvin Kamara remains out after the bye, Murray becomes a rock solid RB2 for Week 10.32Gus Edwards, BAL @ CIN33Kalen Ballage, MIA @ IND.34Peyton Barber, TB vs. ARZ35Frank Gore, BUF @ CLE. It looks like he’s been surpassed by Devin Singletary. He might get 10 carries against Cleveland but not do a ton with them. Another week of heavy Singletary usage can probably make Gore expendable in fantasy.36LeSean McCoy, KC @ TEN37Nyheim Hines, IND vs. MIA. Hines continues to see very limited involvement in the passing game, and if Indy handles business against Miami, gameflow will be working against him, too. 38Tarik Cohen, CHI vs. DET. The Lions allow the most FPPG to RBs, including being vulnerable against receiving backs. Cohen is a decent FLEX play this week, and his value is obviously higher in PPR.39J.D. McKissic, DET @ CHI. McKissic looks like a PPR option going forward, but if Detroit struggles to move the ball at times against Chicago, Week 10 might not be the week to deploy McKissic in your lineup.40Alexander Mattison, MIN @ DAL41Kareem Hunt, CLE vs. BUF. Hunt is back from suspension for Week 10, although he’s been away from the team and Nick Chubb has a stranglehold on the starting job. If Hunt is ever going to take a decent chunk of work away from Chubb, it shouldn’t be for a few weeks. 42Jordan Wilkins, IND vs. MIA43Rashaad Penny, SEA @ SF44Dare Ogunbowale, TB vs. ARZ45Darrel Williams, KC @ TEN46Dion Lewis, TEN vs. KC47Raheem Mostert, SF vs. SEA48Darrell Henderson, LAR @ PIT49Tony Pollard, DAL vs. MIN50Giovani Bernard, CIN vs. BAL51C.J. Prosise, SEA vs. BAL52Dontrell Hilliard, CLE vs. BUF53Wayne Gallman, NYG @ NYJ Devin Singletary and Ronald Jones were both well overdue for breakouts. We’ve touted them both, but for various reasons — injuries for Singletary and curious usage for Jones — neither had really had a top-tier NFL game prior to Sunday. After last week, we can’t say that any longer. Both had shining moments, and both, if their usage continues, will justify their elevated spots in our Week 10 fantasy RB rankings. And don’t forget — Kareem Hunt is back for the Browns this week, although it will probably be a few weeks until he affects Nick Chubb at all.For the first time this season, Singletary received more carries than Frank Gore (20 to 11). He was efficient, too, averaging 4.8 yards per carry for 95 yards total on the heavy workload. He added three catches on four targets for 45 yards. Buffalo had already been playing Singletary many more snaps than Gore, so it seemed like only a matter of time before his carries reflected that. A Week 10 game in Cleveland shouldn’t slow Singletary down, and he’s now firmly in the RB2 tier.

A reported paging made at the San Diego International Airport as gone viral.Video shows the airport’s messaging system announcing a page for “Epstein Coverup” on a digital display.An airport spokesperson says the message was an employee mistake.A statement released Wednesday say the airport is taking the necessary steps to avoid such mistakes in the future.The message comes in the wake of a prominent pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother and observed the autopsy, told Fox News its findings are more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging. He noted that the 66-year-old Epstein had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx, specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple, as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adam’s apple, Baden told Fox News.“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden, who is also a Fox News contributor, said.While there’s not enough information to be conclusive yet, the three fractures were “rare,” said Baden, who’s probed cases involving O.J. Simpson, President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, record producer Phil Spector, New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez and many others.

Roger Stone is back home in Broward County awaiting his sentencing. After his conviction on 7 felony counts in a Washington DC courtroom, federal prosecutors wanted him to be taken into custody. Instead, the judge let him go home to South Florida instead to spend the holidays with family.Stone and his wife landed yesterday at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The 67-year-old was convicted last week of charges that include obstruction, and lying to federal investigators under oath. He’s due back in DC in February for sentencing and faces many years in prison.After landing at FLL airport yesterday, Stone told reporters he’s “glad to be home, and he’s thankful to the millions of Americans who are praying for him and his family.”

The top Republican in the Senate will speak this morning about President Trump’s impeachment. The House voted yesterday to impeach Trump on two articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’ll take to the Senate floor in the morning. He called the impeachment “precedent-breaking.” Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not committing to sending articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate right away.After the House voted to impeach Trump on two articles Wednesday, Pelosi suggested she could hold off on sending over the articles until Senate Republicans say they’ll hold a fair trial. Pelosi criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for saying he wouldn’t be an impartial juror in the Senate trial.

The second powerful earthquake in two days has knocked out power across Puerto Rico this morning.The magnitude 6.5 quake struck about six miles south of Indios, on Puerto Rico’s southwest coast.The island nation is still reeling from Hurricane Maria. That’s the same area where a magnitude 5.8 quake hit Monday morning. There’s no word on damage from today’s quake.
