Public’s aid sought in solving arson

first_imgCANYON COUNTRY – Arson has destroyed a school’s playground. A jungle gym, swing bars and slides at Rio Vista Elementary School burned to the ground last month, and now school officials are looking to the community to help with this unsolved crime. It’s considered the worst case of vandalism to ever strike the Saugus Union School District. A $1,000 reward has been offered by the district for information about the Dec. 19 crime that has shaken the school’s pupils, staff and parents. An arson unit of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating. Amy Frank said her kindergarten-age son, Jared, seemed scared and upset about the situation and has repeatedly asked her why something like this could happen. “It’s little kids’ playground equipment. That’s absolutely terrible,” the Canyon Country mother said. “It was such a miserable thing for someone to do.” DeArmas said the school has experienced vandalism before – tagging, broken windows and occasional trespassers. The campus is locked, but sometimes people leap over the fence behind the school and get on campus after hours. The Cedarcreek Street school sits blocks behind bustling Soledad Canyon Road, in a neighborhood mixed with homes, horses and a storage facility. Bob Dale, 63, said property behind and around the school has had problems in the past because it’s isolated, and people go there to party. He used to hear loud music from the desolate area while working night security for a nearby facility and said it’s a popular spot because it’s easily accessible. “That makes the school kind of vulnerable,” the Santa Clarita man said. Last year the school completed a modernization project that added a new multipurpose room, a two-story building for more classrooms and a remodeled playground. Young trees are still tied to supportive stakes and dot the campus perimeter. The playground was about two years old. Meanwhile, students are playing ball and jumping rope on the fields and blacktop around the 37-year-old school. Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call Karzin at (661) 294-5300.

The fire is estimated to have caused about $100,000 worth of damage. “You wonder why people would do something like that, especially to a school,” said Keith Karzin, the district’s director of safety and risk management. “To me, it’s very low for someone to do that.” A sign hangs in the school’s office window, alerting parents of the fire that happened during winter vacation. The district plans to replace the playground equipment and textured surface that covered the ground and also was destroyed. Residents living in the hills above the school saw flames on the campus around 8:30 that night and called the Fire Department, which doused it before flames spread to other structures, said Principal Isa DeArmas. Meanwhile, students are wondering what happened to their playground and why people would burn it down. last_img read more

Real Madrid ‘plot Kane move’, and believe they could sign him in January

first_img Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ 2 Kane has scored six times this season REVEALED The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star Latest transfer news Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade three-way race moving on IN DEMAND Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? Real Madrid have renewed their interest in Tottenham star Harry Kane heading into the January transfer window, according to reports.Kane has been a long-term target of Real’s, who have viewed the England forward as the latest Galactico to bring to the Bernabeu. 2 targets RANKED Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January targets LIVING THE DREAM LATEST Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer TOP WORK Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father And, according to El Confidencial, Kane has been placed at the top of Real’s shortlist – with the club confident they could perhaps sign him when the transfer window reopens in January.Madrid believe Spurs’ struggles in the Champions League – they’ve lost both their opening two matches – could open the door to a move for Kane, as Tottenham would suffer a ‘serious economic stumble’ by failing to reach the latter stages of Europe’s premier club competition.Furthermore, due to new UEFA regulations, Kane WOULD be allowed to play for Real in European competition this season despite already playing for Spurs; playing for two clubs in the same Champions League season was previously not allowed. And Florentino Perez, the Real president, has given orders for club officials to find two players that can improve Julen Lopetegui’s squad in January, following Los Blancos’ poor start to the season.Real have won just four of their eight league matches so far to sit fourth in La Liga, while they also suffered a shock defeat in their second Champions League group stage match to increase doubts they may struggle to progress to the knockout rounds.Real appear to be struggling without Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for Juventus earlier this year, and Perez wants to bring in a pair of players to replace the Portuguese’s influence. Chelsea confident of beating Man United and Liverpool to Sancho signing Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland RB Leipzig and Germany forward Timo Werner, 22, is named in the report as an alternate target for Real should a move for Kane prove impossible. while the Madrid club continue to hold interest in Eden Hazard, the Chelsea forward.

Latest: QPR 0 Southampton 0 – Zarate on as Rangers chase vital points

first_imgChris Ramsey fielded a side full of attacking intent but Southampton have looked more dangerous and went close when Graziano Pelle hit the woodwork in the first half. Ramsey, in caretaker charge following the departure of manager Harry Redknapp, included Adel Taarabt in QPR’s starting line-up, while Matt Phillips and Armand Traore were deployed on the flanks and Leroy Fer was moved into central midfield alongside Joey Barton.However, Rangers’ Rob Green was the busier keeper early on, gathering an effort from Pelle and seeing a shot from Eljero Elia drift wide after Green had been spotted off his line.Victor Wanyama and the impressive Sadio Mane also fired wide, while at the other end Barton shot over following good work from Taarabt.Southampton were dealt a blow when young defender Matt Targett was stretchered off midway through the first half following a clash of heads with Phillips.But they continued to have the upper hand and Mane was denied by a fingertip save by Green after squirming away from Clint Hill.Pelle was then unlucky not to open the scoring when he volleyed James Ward-Prowse’s right-wing corner against the bar.Ramsey, who is being assisted by Redknapp’s former right-hand man Kevin Bond, made a change just after the hour mark, replacing Taarabt with on-loan West Ham forward Mauro Zarate. QPR: Green; Onuoha, Caulker, Dunne, Hill, Phillips, Barton, Fer, Traore, Taarabt (Zarate 62), Austin.Subs: McCarthy, Isla, Kranjcar, Henry, Vargas, Zamora.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
