SoCalGas
Monday, February 27, 2017
LOS ANGELES, February 16, 2017 — Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) today announced that it will upgrade or replace 50 to 60 pipeline valves in 2017 to further enhance the safety of its system. The upgraded valves will feature the latest technology that allow operators to control the valves from a remote location, or that automatically shut off the valve if a drop-in pressure is detected. The new valves will allow gas control operators to respond more quickly if gas flow needs to be shut off in an emergency. The effort is part of SoCalGas’ Pipeline Safety Enhancement Plan (PSEP), a multi-billion-dollar program that tests and updates the natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Southern California.

Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority
Monday, February 27, 2017
In January, the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority Board of Directors approved an updated project schedule for the 12.3-mile, six-station Foothill Gold Line light rail extension from Glendora to Montclair. The updated schedule is based on detailed constructability reviews conducted as part of the advanced conceptual engineering phase and a more extensive understanding that the next segment is really two major construction projects in one – first the freight and Metrolink relocation/reconstruction, and then the light rail system construction.

I’ll just start this newsletter by saying ‘Congratulations!’ For what now, to whom? Well, to all of us at the Chamber for creating a new event, the Best BET Bash, and pulling it off successfully! It is never easy to first come up with an idea for an event, considering all the ‘who-what-where-when’ questions that must be satisfied and then the actual stitching it all together. We had many fine individuals help in the stitching and vendors donating so that everyone who attended enjoyed the evening. We presented a giant check to the school district for $15,063.81 and will soon add another tidy sum towards next year’s grants. Read more

Claremont, Ca - Glitter and glamour illuminated the success of Claremont Chamber of Commerce’s first Annual Best B.E.T. Bash earlier in February! Claremont’s business community rallied to the cause of this grant program of the highest magnitude. Hosted by Claremont Chamber of Commerce at the Doubletree by Hilton, the event opened with fun and relaxation. Guests included representatives from the Claremont Unified School District, the City of Claremont, Hilda Solis’ 1st District Supervisor’s Office and many other notable Claremont business and community members. The highlight of the night, by far, was having the privilege of awarding the check in the presence of some of the very teachers who received this year’s grants! Read more

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you, in this our shortest month made even shorter with a 3-day weekend thrown in for good measure! As I write this, we have yet to kick off the premier Best B.E.T. Bash held at the Doubletree Hotel. Big thanks to John over there for all the attention he gives to us in putting on our events! This evening out is filled with fine hor d’oeuvers, cocktails and networking. It replaces the golf tournament as the fundraiser we have relied upon to support our grant program for our teachers.

Foothill Gold Line Update: Glendora to Montclair Update January, 27, 2017 - Claremont, Ca Ahead of the upcoming October groundbreaking, crews are out this week conducting geologic tests at key locations along the Glendora to Montclair extension to evaluate soil conditions. This work is part of the on-going effort underway to prepare the $1.3 billion project for construction, including finalizing the advanced conceptual engineering with our partner cities and other key stakeholders. The photos below show the crew collecting soil data with 100-foot deep borings in Glendora, near the Grand Avenue/Foothill Boulevard intersection (left) and Lone Hill Avenue (right). These are two of the two dozen locations along the future project where structures will likely be built or renovated. Read more

Last week, a federal court in Texas issued a nationwide preliminary injunction blocking the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) from enforcing the new federal overtime rule which was set to take effect on December 1. The federal overtime rule has been controversial, as it more than doubled the current federal salary level that must be met before an employee can be classified as exempt from overtime under one of the so-called white-collar exemptions (the executive, administrative and professional exemptions).

Can California employers count bonuses and commissions toward the new federal salary requirement? Can employees in California be classified as exempt under the “highly compensated employee” exemption? No, and no. Neither of these two provisions of the new federal overtime rule—which raises the federal salary test for the executive, administrative and professional exemptions to $913 per week ($47,476 annually) effective December 1, 2016—apply to California employees.

As I compose this November Newsletter, Village Venture has yet to happen, but I am certain it was a success! They always are and look very easy but they take an enormous amount of time, planning and precise execution to achieve that impression. Thanks to Maureen, Marlene and Jose for this year’s production. Volunteering was way down this year, (yeah, like my Newsletter nagging made any difference), but volunteering appears down in numbers for many events with as many reasons. Such is life! Read more
