first_img“Day in and day out, my folks perform miracles in the streets, making sure the Valley doesn’t burn down,” Rueda said. “These are the men and women of the Fire Department; not what you read in the papers.” LAFD Capt. Mark Gozawa of Station 104 in Winnetka received the Tom Taylor Award of Excellence. Sharing the Firefighter of the Year award were Capt. Gerald C. Horwedel of Station 96 in Chatsworth; Engineer Oscar Gutierrez from Station 90 in Van Nuys and Apparatus Operator David Carl Thomas of Station 75 in Mission Hills. James R. Goldsworthy of Station 114 in Van Nuys received the Firefighter/Paramedic of the Year award. With a large contingent of his officers at the luncheon, William Bratton, chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, said he’s looking ahead to his second term. “Thank you for the privilege and honor to represent you,” Bratton told the LAPD honorees. VAN NUYS – Nearly a dozen San Fernando Valley law enforcement officers and firefighters were honored at a banquet Thursday for their exceptional service to the city of Los Angeles. About 300 people gathered at the Airtel Plaza Hotel for the 28th annual Police Officers, Firefighters and Paramedics Recognition Luncheon. The honorees put their lives on the line every day, but were selected not so much for heroic deeds as for their persistent “way of giving back to the city of Los Angeles more than they’re asked to in their daily jobs,” said City Councilman Greig Smith, the host. Before handing out plaques,Los Angeles Fire Department Deputy Chief Mario Rueda said the performance and character of the firefighters who received them Thursday reflect the LAFD more than news reports and editorials in which the department has been criticized for hazing and on racial and sexist issues. The chief came under fire from the rank and file for his criticism of officers after the May Day immigration rally in which dozens of civilians, reporters and police officers were injured. But Bratton commended his force Thursday for lower crime rates before proudly shaking the hands of the award recipients. LAPD officers sharing the Police Officer of the Year award were Van Nuys Division Officer Dax Martin; West Valley Division Officer James Jester; Valley Traffic Division Officer Douglas P. Larkin and Devonshire Division Sgt. James R. Leiphardt. Devonshire Department Detective John Doerbecker was the recipient of the Dan Danko Award of Excellence. West Valley California Highway Patrol Officer James Oberlander received the Outstanding CHP Officer of the Year award. After the ceremony, Councilman Smith paid homage to “unsung heroes,” asking members of the law enforcement officers’ and firefighters’ families to stand. “They stay home, fearing for their (loved ones’) lives and safety, never sure that they’re coming home,” Smith said. rick.coca@dailynews.com (818) 713-3329160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgI’VE always liked the Constitution for it is the backbone of this great country of ours, but if the area that needs to be amended is the part about free speech. For if certain people are going to avoid the half nelson, the chokehold and other wrestling moves, then the limitations on free expression cannot be limited to slander, libel, not yelling “fire” inside a crowded theater and other such things. To the woman ahead of me in line at the clothing store that day: If you want to wear jeans with slits instead of back pockets, then that is your business, but at least be sure to wear the appropriate undergarments underneath. You are in fine shape, woman ahead of me, but you are lucky that I do not have a condition that causes me to blurt inappropriate things out. Because if I did, I would have said something like “nice cheeks,” but I didn’t because a combination of fear, decency, self-discipline prevented me from doing so. But you must remember that some people don’t have anywhere near this healthy combination, and you could find yourself in some fine trouble one day. So my advice to you is this: Buy a needle and thread and sew them up. Or save them for an intimate dinner. To the man driving behind me who wished me cancer and a premature death for turning left into that driveway: I am sorry I did not signal my intentions, but I was afraid I was heading straight for the Hollywood Hills never to be seen or heard from again with an ever-fading cell phone signal by my side. My only hope is that your brain chemistry will continue to go downhill, and that your next incident will be in front of some guy with a shaved head, gold teeth and a jail record. But when that happens, I will be long gone, relocated to the Amazon to live peaceably among nature and the animals. As long as no one is wearing any funky jeans or T-shirts, then we should all get along just fine.

To the woman behind me in that same line with the “F- New York” T-shirt. Was that really necessary? I know that we all have had bad experiences with certain people and places, but is that any reason to diss an entire city and try to kill its tourist trade? Last month I made a mistake with a credit card and tried paying from the wrong account, so they tacked on some unseemly charges and canceled all but one after many phone calls. But that doesn’t mean that I went out and printed a “F- the Bank” T-shirt to express my thoughts and views. I thought it over, vowed to type more carefully in the future and moved on. So leave New York City alone. New Yorkers are having enough problems already with overcrowding, recent floods and an ex-mayor who probably won’t get to be our next president. last_img read more
