Encinitas leaders push for changes to Coast Highway after bike safety advocate

She suffered broken bones, as well as injuries to her brain and spine.Walker, who heads a community group, Cardiff 101 Main Street, has been an outspoken supporter of a plan called North Coast Highway 101 Streetscape.  The plan by the City of Encinitas would create a dedicated bike lane in both directions, add crosswalks, sidewalks and install traffic roundabouts in six locations along a two and a half mile stretch of 101; from La Costa Avenue in Leucadia to the city’s main business district.To make room for a separate bike lane, the road would be reconfigured to reduce vehicle traffic from two lanes to one.City Council Member Tony Kranz said the changes may add another minute or two to auto trips from one end to another, but he said that would be a minor cost for the sake of safety. “The tradeoff for more safety for bicyclists and pedestrians is in my opinion, worth it,” Kranz said.Opponents of Streetscape have argued that the new design will lead to traffic congestion and make access to the beaches more difficult.Mayor Catherine Blakespear and other supporters of the project disagree. They said adding features such as more crosswalks and sidewalks will make getting around easier for everyone. “This tragedy just underscores how important it is that we improve the safety in the corridor,” Blakespear said.Streetscape has an estimated cost of $30 million and has been in the planning stages for more than a decade.Mayor Blakespear and those who hold Roberta Walker in high regard said there are no good reasons for any more delays. “We need to do more to get this project off the ground right away,” the mayor said.Blakespear said she would ask City Council at its next meeting to put the project on the fast track.

Microsoft Clears the Way for Having ExFAT in the Linux Kernel

first_imgMicrosoft is making the official specification for exFAT file system freely available in a move meant to make it possible to include an exFAT driver directly into the Linux kernel. Additionally, when an exFAT-enabled Linux kernel is published, Microsoft will support its inclusion in the Open Invention Network’s Linux System Definition. This decision provides the new possibility of making an exFAT driver part of the Linux kernel, which was previously impossible due to Microsoft’s aggressive stance against Linux during the Ballmer era, and more recently to the non-inclusion of any exFAT-related patents into the patent non-aggression pact Microsoft signed when joining the Open Invention Network (OIN).Instead, exFAT drivers have been available under Linux as FUSE modules, which means they run in userspace, or else they were implemented inside of the kernel but outside of the Linux mainline. This was the case for Android kernels, for example, but original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) were then obliged to license exFAT from Microsoft and pay the corresponding royalties.Among the benefits of having exFAT available as a Linux kernel driver are its availability out-of-the-box, and better performance. According to Greg Kroah-Hartman, who submitted a patch to the Linux kernel adding support for exFAT, a kernel exFAT driver is much faster than its FUSE equivalent module. Specifically, FUSE modules have higher latency and worse input-output per second (IOPs), which is usually not a big issue on desktop-systems that have plenty of computing power and energy available but it is on embedded and IoT systems.OIN is a mutual-defense organization that acquires patents and licenses them to its members for free. OIN members, in exchange, agree not to sue other members for their use of OIN patents in Linux-related systems. Presently, OIN has over 3,000 members, including major Linux distributions such as RedHat, Ubuntu, and SUSE. It is worth noting that neither Debian nor ArchLinux are listed among OIN members. Also, as OIN is exclusively Linux-oriented, the inclusion of exFAT in the OIN Linux System Definition will not foreseeably bring any benefits to FreeBSD and other *BSD OSes. It’s important to us that the Linux community can make use of exFAT included in the Linux kernel with confidence. To this end, we will be making Microsoft’s technical specification for exFAT publicly available to facilitate development of conformant, interoperable implementations.last_img read more

Skiers attacker on trial for custody violation

first_imgOpening statements are set to begin today in the custodial interference trial of a Clark County man convicted earlier this year in the near-fatal beating of a cross-country skier.The trial relates to how Michael D. Collins, 35, allegedly took his teenage son, Teven Collins, in violation of a custody order, before the two beat and robbed a skier near Dougan Falls on Feb. 9, 2009.The jury was seated late Monday afternoon in Clark County Superior Court Judge Rich Melnick’s courtroom. Jurors were asked to return this morning for opening statements, followed by the state’s witnesses.The trial is expected to conclude Wednesday.Michael Collins was sentenced in February to about 24 years in prison after a Skamania County jury convicted him of first-degree attempted murder and robbery in the skier attack. Teven Collins was given an eight-year sentence after pleading guilty to second-degree attempted murder.Testimony in the February trial revealed Michael Collins and his son — after running out of food while camping at Dougan Falls in western Skamania County — plotted to rob a skier, steal his car and then kill him, so as to not leave a witness.last_img read more

Proposal aims to create Discovery Corridor along I5

first_imgRegional economic development leaders want to expand the boundaries of a highly conceptual business-oriented research park in north Clark County from roughly 100 acres near Washington State University Vancouver to 5,000 acres stretching from La Center to Salmon Creek.Under the proposal to enlarge and rename the county’s state-designated “innovation partnership zone,” a local team of business, government and university leaders would focus on attracting a cluster of information technology companies into the geographic area that would be dubbed the Discovery Corridor. That area has few such jobs now, but economic development consultants are encouraging growth in information technology businesses near WSUV.The Discovery Corridor plan doesn’t rezone property or hand out building permits. A big-picture concept, its goal is to focus the region’s economic development efforts, and attract public and private investment.“By increasing the size of the zone, the quantity of prospective projects increases while maintaining a critical mass for development and research,” according to the Sept. 1 application submitted by area leaders to the Washington State Department of Commerce.Jeanie Ashe, director of business recruitment for the Columbia River Economic Development Council, and Brent Grening, executive director of the Port of Ridgefield, traveled to Seattle on Tuesday to present the proposal to a group of state government officials who oversee economic development and workforce development programs.last_img read more

Todays snow stays on the hills in the Gorge

first_imgOur two-day flirtation with a snowstorm in the greater Vancouver area appears to be over.It was too warm — 38 degrees at Pearson Field at 4:53 a.m. — and too dry — only a trace of cold rain was falling — for snow to make much of an impact on the morning commute.A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 10 a.m., when temperatures are expected to rise. Until then, rain showers may be mixed with snowflakes.However, the advisory predicts any accumulating snow will be limited to elevations above 500 feet, which in Clark County would include Yacolt and the Hockinson Hills.Late Tuesday afternoon, it had looked like an inch or two of that snow might fall as low as the valley floor.Either way the prospects for a snow day for schoolchildren were limited. Most public schools are dismissed until after New Year. Two private schools, Columbia Adventist Academy and Meadow Glade Adventist Elementary, have announced late starts today.Woodland schools announced bus Route 67 will not travel North Dubois, Route 90 will not travel Little Kalama River Road, and Route 96 will not travel Shirley Gordon Road.last_img read more

Former youth group volunteer arrested on child pornography charges

first_imgA Vancouver man who was active in his local church group and enrolled in courses to become a child sex abuse counselor was arrested Tuesday on federal child pornography charges.Bradley J. Gilliam, 24, was charged in U.S. District Court with allegedly possessing, receiving and distributing child porn, according to a news release from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He made his first court appearance Wednesday.Gilliam allegedly shared illicit images of children, including toddlers, on an Internet file sharing network under the username “Bllover69,” the release said. Investigators traced the Internet messages back to Gilliam’s Vancouver home.Homeland Security special agents and Vancouver police executed a search warrant at Gilliam’s home last summer, seizing a laptop and digital storage device. The equipment contained a library of images and video files of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, the release said.Investigators learned Gilliam volunteered with a youth group at Grace Foursquare Church in Camas and was enrolled in courses to become a child sex abuse counselor.
