High bidder wins trolley -if he has the money


first_imgWHITTIER — Resident Joe Marsico’s dream finally came true Friday when he put in the highest bid to purchase the city’s last remaining trolley car. Only now Marsico has to come up with the $21,510 he bid. And that could be a problem because Marsico said he doesn’t have the money. “I’m going to pray for the money,’ Marsico said after the four bids for 14- year-old trolley No. 1898 were opened. “I just have to do this. I had a calling. I’ve had miracles in my life.’ Marsico, the longtime activist who attends most City Council meetings, was referring to his son, Henry, who had a heart transplant at the age of 9 and lived another 10 years.

Most likely, Marsico will have 60 business days from Nov. 8, when the City Council is expected to award the bid to him. Marsico said he wants to take the trolley around to other cities in Los Angeles County to push its use in transit systems. The city initially put the trolley up for auction in July, said Fran Shields, director of community services. The city of Lindsay bid $21,500. Marsico was the second highest bidder then, at $7,300 plus 5 percent of whatever revenue he generated from use of the trolley. However, Lindsay only had 10 days to pay for it and pick it up after it was notified on Aug. 30. That didn’t happen, so a second round of bids was sought. But this time Lindsay only bid $13,500. Marsico said he bid $10 higher than Lindsay’s previous bid to ensure the city wouldn’t lose money. The trolley was one of five used on Whittier Transit bus routes from 1990 to 1997. The first four trolleys were sold in 1998 for a total of $109,300. This trolley was kept as a backup vehicle and used for community events. But when Norwalk took over the transit service for Whittier, the trolley wasn’t needed as a backup vehicle and to keep it just for the Christmas parade didn’t make economic sense, Shields said. @tagline columnist:Mike Sprague can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022, or by e-mail at mike.sprague@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Cornellà, the broken mirror of 2010

first_imgFrom that Espanyol, who until the derby added 12 goals in favor and only two against after defeating Getafe (3-1), Alavés (1-0), Osasuna (1-0), Levante (2-1), Málaga (1-0), Hercules (3-0) and Sporting (1-0 ), It happens to the current one, that after nine home games he hasn’t won one, and has only been able to score against Getafe (1-1) and Betis (2-2). The numbers are chilling: d27 points, seven goals scored and 20 received. And colista. Unlike what is happening this season, when Espanyol has signed the worst home start In its 85 seasons of participation in LaLiga, the start at home of the 2010-11 season, with Mauricio Pochettino in command, was little less than magical. With seven wins, no draw and no defeat Espanyol was planted in December. A full 21 points out of 21 in Cornellà-El Prat that took him up in the classification to fourth place after 14 days, with 28 points. And so, on December 18, 2010, Barcelona landed to break the streak, with a painful 1-5 (double of Pedro and Villa, goals of Xavi and Osvaldo) that would truncate the winning rhythm already in the remainder of the season. And, as then, Now it is Barcelona that arrives in CornellàWho knows if with the broken mirror of what happened a decade ago it becomes the first parakeet victory of this entire League at home.center_img There is no streak in Cornellà-El Prat, which has long exceeded the threshold of a decade of operation, better than the one that occurred precisely ten years ago. In 2010. And, by the path that it takes, it will be as difficult to match as necessary to approach it so that the aspirations of permanence of Espanyol are real. The almighty Barcelona can invest tonight that record, which ended precisely against the Catalans.last_img
