first_imgSTEVENSON RANCH – A 47-year-old Stevenson Ranch man was sentenced to more than five years in prison for using fictitious gambling earnings to file fraudulent tax returns, an IRS agent said Tuesday. Kenneth Steve John was also ordered to pay $449,084 to cover the false refunds he and a co-conspirator received from his fraud scheme, said Special Agent Michael Moriarty, a spokesman for the Internal Revenue Service. “Identity theft can make honest taxpayers face a more difficult time in obtaining their lawful refund,” Moriarty said. John pleaded guilty to charges of filing a false tax return, embezzlement and aggravated identity theft. The fictitious gambling returns were supposed to have come from horse racing tracks around Southern California, according to the IRS. John, who was sentenced to prison Monday, will be on parole for three years after his release. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (661) 257-5253 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img A total of 17,257 ballots were returned by the Nov. 22 deadline, a little more than one-third of the 49,500 mailed to property owners six weeks ago. Of those returned, 8,103 voted for the measure and 9,154 voted against. Building parks and providing recreational opportunities has always been high on the city’s priority list, Ortiz said, and though the budget will be strained by competing needs in the coming years, those items will continue to rank very high. Judy O’Rourke, (661) 257-5255 judy.orourke@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE If the measure had passed, it could have generated about $1.46 million a year to buy, maintain and develop parkland and open space. The money could have been leveraged to generate more than $80 million right away, Ortiz said. The city spent about $250,000 on informational materials, ballots, polls and an engineer’s report, Ortiz said. By law, the city was allowed to educate voters on such issues but had to remain politically neutral. A couple of dozen calls were received by an informational hotline and two community meetings drew about 50 people each. Santa Clarita City Council members Laurene Weste and Frank Ferry were appointed by the council to head a subcommittee that conveyed the city’s support for the measure, but the pair acted as private citizens to advocate for it. On Wednesday, Weste and Ferry and city staff members did not return phone calls seeking comment. Long Beach-based Adler Public Affairs was hired by a private-citizen group to advocate for the measure. Adler declined to say how much the group spent on the effort, and did not return calls, either. It will take at least a week for officials to begin sorting out why the measure failed. Votes on the nonsecret ballots will be plotted out on a map, community by community. The votes were weighted, with single-family homeowners receiving one vote, condominium owners getting three-quarters of a vote, and property owners who own larger spreads or multiple parcels casting more than one weighted vote. SANTA CLARITA – The city’s proposed $25-a-year special assessment to fund park and open space purchases was defeated, according to Wednesday’s official tally, which found that about two-thirds of property owners did not vote. The measure fell short of the simple majority needed to pass, with 40 percent of voters in favor and 60 percent opposed. “This is democracy at work,” said Mayor Cameron Smyth. “If this was not something the people wanted, they have spoken. You respect that and move on.” There appeared to be no organized opposition to the measure and wide support was voiced over the past few months by environmentalists, safety officials, business leaders and developers. Two polls conducted in the past year found that eligible voters would likely support the formation of the Open Space and Parkland Preservation District, said Gail Ortiz, the city’s spokeswoman. last_img read more

first_imgSinn Féin’s Finance Spokesperson Deputy Pearse Doherty has criticised the Government over their failure to introduce legislation for the regulation of counselling and psychotherapy services.Deputy Pearse DohertyThe Donegal TD says the absence of regulation within the sector is putting already vulnerable patients in danger of exploitation.Deputy Doherty’s comments come after he recently raised the issue of the lack of adequate safeguards for people undergoing both counselling and psychotherapy with Health Minister Leo Varadkar in the Dáil. “Currently under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005, neither those working as Psychotherapists or as Counsellors are regulated: this means that in effect training standards and qualifications of practitioners within the industry is extremely varied.”“In fact, there is much confusion amongst the general public about the functions and competencies of individuals working with the mental health services: confusion which is made all the worse by the huge range of titles used by industry professionals to define their specialisation.”“The professional associations in counselling and psychotherapy would generally favour the establishment of statutory regulation however there are no shared national educational standards for programmes of Higher Education in counselling and psychotherapy, with institutions offering programmes from Levels 6 to 9 as per the National Framework of Qualifications – meaning that the standards and qualification obtained by those pursuing different courses in psychotherapy and counselling can vary greatly.”“The absence of such regulation is extremely worrying as there is nothing in place stopping someone who has perhaps completed a few weeks’ study from gaining a diploma in a particular area and then going on to counsel vulnerable people with very serious ailments.” “The Government continues to claim that it is committed to introducing such legislation, yet the Minister revealed in the Dáil when I recently raised this matter with him that the matter remains at an ‘early stage of consideration’ and consultation with industry professionals and other stakeholders and – unsurprisingly – he failed to give a clear time frame as to when he expected legislation to be introduced.”“It’s extremely troubling to think that some of the most vulnerable people in our society are not being protected from possible exploitation by those ill-qualified to provide the care and help which they so desperately need.”“How can any government claim that it is committed to resolving such an atrocious situation and yet after more than four years in power fail to deliver the statutory instruments which are so desperately required?”DOHERTY BLASTS GOVT’S FAILURE TO REGULATE COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY SERVICES was last modified: June 30th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
